In today’s world, there is a growing demand for skin solutions that actually work! This has turned attention towards the two most popular technologies: Chemical peels and Microdermabrasion. Both options can deliver good results without any invasive surgeries or any significant side effects. But will these treatments give you what you are looking for?
All you needed to know about Chemical peels
Chemical peels are a simple, out patient procedure typically performed by a Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon. The treatment involves application of a chemical agent to the area of skin needing treatment to facilitate removal of the dead and dull outer layer of the skin. This process reveals the younger looking skin underneath.
There are different kinds of Chemical peels, the most commonly used ones are the very mild and gentle alpha hydroxy peels (Glycolic acid, Lactic acid). These need to be repeated often to deliver the desired results.
The TCA (TriChloroAcetic acid) peels are the next in line. These are stronger, and need three to five days to yield their final results. However, these need to be used by the most experienced Dermatologists, as they are deeper peels and your skin recovery time is longer.
Chemical peels are used to promote smoother, healthier, younger-looking skin and a better complexion. They are known to reduce blemishes, some skin pigmentations, fine lines, and some wrinkles. Consult Dr. Rasya Dixit to know more about Chemical peels.
