Chemical Peels

Progressive Clinic with Chemical Peels Treatment

Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that can be applied to the face, hands, and neck. They’re used to improve the appearance or feel of the skin. During this procedure, chemical solutions will be applied to the area being treated, which causes the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off. Once this happens, the new skin underneath is often smoother, appears less wrinkled, and may have less damage.

What are the reasons people may get chemical peels ?

There are a number of reasons people may get chemical peels. They may be trying to treat a variety of things, including:

What are types of chemical peels?

There are three different types of chemical peels that you can get. These include:

1.Superficial peels

which use mild acids like alpha-hydroxy acid to gently exfoliate. It only penetrates the outermost layer of skin.

2.Medium peels

which use trichloroacetic or glycolic acid to reach the middle and outer layer of skills. This makes it more effective for removing damaged skin cells.

3.Deep peels

which fully penetrate the middle layer of the skin to remove damaged skin cells; these peels often use phenol or trichloroacetic acid.

What to expect after a chemical peel?

Recovery time varies depending on which chemical peel you received.

During recovery, follow your doctor’s post-op instructions faithfully. You’ll be given specific instructions for how often to wash your face and moisturize, and which products you should use to do so. Try to stay out of the sun until your skin has healed, and avoid using makeup or other cosmetics until your doctor gives you the go-ahead.
