Pesky little dark spots and skin discolouration makes your skin tone look uneven. Sun exposure over a long period of time damages the tissues of the skin and leads to skin rashes, burns and tanning which often leaves marks behind. Acne scars also cause dark spots which are then difficult to treat using just home remedies.

Skin treatments such as chemical peeling help rejuvenate the skin and get an even tone. It reduces acne scars, removes dark spots and renders a soft and flawless skin. Chemical peeling is a process in which an active solution such as alpha hydroxy acid is applied on the surface of the skin which causes the superficial layer and medium layer to peel off.

The treatment exposes a new layer of skin which is healthy and undamaged. Skin peels are suitable for various areas including face, neck, hands and other parts as well. Chemical peeling is often used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, folds, improve texture and treat pigment disorders.

Types of Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are broadly defined by the depth of the effect they have on the skin during the treatment. They are categorized as superficial (lunchtime peel), medium and deep.

  • Superficial peels do not damage the skin below the epidermis, the most superficial layer of the skin.
  • Medium peels may reach the superficial layer of the dermis, a deeper layer in the skin.
  • Deep peels usually reach the deeper layers of the dermis.

A chemical peel basically involves the application of a chemical on the surface of the skin in a controlled manner which results in a controlled amount of tissue death. Now, the depth of damage caused by the chemical peel depends on the nature of the chemical used, the length of the time it interacted with the skin and how deeply did it penetrate the skin.

Most commonly used chemical peeling solutions include retinoids (tretinoin dissolved in propylene glycol), phenol (carbolic acid), alpha-hydroxy acids (lactic acid and glycolic acid) and beta-hydroxy acids (salicylic acid).

After the skin’s layer is peeled off, a new layer is formed. This new layer is a fresh, healthy and undamaged skin layer which is grown by the superficial dermis and the deeper layers of the epidermis.

It is essential that you consult to a medical practitioner or dermatologist and talk about your skin sensitivity, texture, type, allergies and other important things which might affect your chemical peeling treatment.
