Do you want to remove all those aging signs from your skin that make you feel uncomfortable? Then chemical peels may be just the right remedy for you. This technique can not only give your skin a rosy youthful glow but can also reduce signs of the aging process. It can also help you with stubborn skin problems like acne.

What Are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are also widely known by the name of chemexfoliation. In this technique, a special chemical solution will be applied to your skin on the specific portion where you want the treatment to be done. Then that layer eventually peels off, exfoliating your skin and revealing fresh new layers of skin. The chemicals that are applied to your skin include trichloroacetic acid (TCA), alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA), and phenol.

What Are the Various Types of Chemical Peels?

Superficial Peel: In this technique, a mild acid is used to carry out exfoliation for the external skin. An acid like alpha hydroxyl acid is used in this case. It can help reduce the appearance of skin discolorations and can also bring a rejuvenating effect to the hands, neck, and face.

Medium Peel: In this technique, the damaged skin layers are removed with the help of an acid like trichloroacetic acid. This type of chemical peel treatment is very effective in smoothing out rough and damaged skin and can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving you a younger look.

Deep Peel: In the deep peel technique, acids like higher-concentration trichloroacetic acid and phenol are used to moderate the appearance of fine lines and freckles. Phenol is able to reach deeper to address harsh skin issues.
