Chemical Peels - Get That Younger Looking and Fair Skin!

MBBS, MD - Dermatology
Dermatologist, Raipur
Chemical Peels - Get That Younger Looking and Fair Skin!

Do you ever wish you could start all over and take better care of your skin? A chemical peel could give you that chance. Peels can dramatically reduce lines, wrinkles, acne scars, dark spots, and roughness caused by years of sun.

A chemical peel is a solution applied to the face to remove the outermost layer or layers of skin. It's a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new skin that grows in its place is softer, smoother and has fewer imperfections. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun.

There are three basic types of chemical peels:

Superficial or Lunchtime Peel: Alpha-hydroxy acid or another mild acid is used to penetrate only the outer layer of skin to gently exfoliate it. The treatment is used to improve the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin as well as to refresh the face, neck, chest or hands.

Medium Peel: Glycolic or trichloroacetic acid is applied to penetrate the outer and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment is used to improve age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and moderate skin discoloration.

Deep Peel: Trichloroacetic acid or phenol is applied to deeply penetrate the middle layer of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment removes moderate lines, age spots, freckles and shallow scars. A thorough evaluation by a dermatologic surgeon is imperative before embarking upon a chemical peel.

When is a chemical peel appropriate?

Chemical peels are used to treat a number of conditions including:

  1. Pigmentation on face or body
  2. Tanning
  3. Dyschromias
  4. Fine Wrinkles
  5. Acne
  6. Acne marks and scars
  7. Dullness
  8. Aging skin
  9. Crow's feet
  10. Sagging skin

Who should not opt for chemical peels?

Generally, light-haired and fair skinned people are the best candidates for chemical peel. The procedure does not work as well on dark skinned patients. The procedure is not recommended for individuals with infections, active skin disease, cut or broken skin, or sunburns. Other contraindications include patients who are:

  1. Nursing or pregnant.
  2. Have taken Accutane in last six months.
  3. Have psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis or rosacea.

Possible complications

Temporary change in skin color, particularly for women on birth control pills, who subsequently become pregnant or have a history of brownish facial discoloration.

Changes are transient and easy to take care of if taken care properly.

  • Scarring
  • Reactivation of cold sores
  • A variety of chemical treatments can be used to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin.

Depending on the depth of treatment required, your surgeon may choose one of the following peels:

  • Alpha-hydroxy acid peel (AHA)
  • Trichloroacetic acid peel (TCA)
  • Phenol peel
  • Croton oil peel

Aftercare and recovery

Your dermatologist will discuss how long it will be before you can return to your normal level of activity and work. After surgery, you and your caregiver will receive detailed instructions about your postsurgical care, including information about:

  1. Normal symptoms you will experience
  2. Potential signs of complications

Is there any treatment to get a scales skin, I got pit scars from small pox and they haven't filled up over the time. What are the possible Remedies.

Hi lybrate-user! Pox scars happen due to faulty collagen and fibrous tissue deposition. The scars can be improved by changing the type of collagen which can be achieved through a minor skin procedure called subcision. After repeated subcisions the depression in the skin will improve. The remaining deficit can be corrected by a hyaluronic acid or PMMA filler.

Without actually seeing the black spots it is very difficult for us to analyse, therefore it would be ideal if you can post your picture, or visit a dermatologist nearby for assessment.

Hello, Apply Homoeopathic medicine – Thiosinaminum Q + Berberis Aqefolium Q - few drops mixed in a glycerin solution on scars that are visible (as it is less greasy, so is more easily absorbed into the skin). Also take Causticum 200 and Berberis Aquefolium Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water - orally twice daily for 4weeks.
