Medical peels are an adjunctive method for treating acne and rosacea, irregularly pigmented, sun-damaged and mature skin. Some chemical peels are formulated to treat the uppermost layer of your skin, such as glycolic acid or salicylic acid. These light peels will diminish roughness, improve texture and very fine wrinkles, and help minimize melasma or other hyperpigmentation problems. They are also helpful for removing superficial actinic keratoses which are considered potentially pre-cancerous. Other peels penetrate deeper, such as peels using trichloracetic acid, TCA.
Medical peels brighten and smooth the skin’s appearance by gently resurfacing it through the removal of its damaged outer layers. They are an effective non-surgical cosmetic facelift treatment for those who desire to treat mild to more severe skin conditions including sun-damaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles, skin pigment abnormalities, acne, and acne scarring.
Depending on the level of chemical peel you receive, you may have redness, peeling, skin crusting, and stinging for a few days for a light chemical peel or up to 2 weeks for a deep chemical peel. You should use strong sun protection and avoid sun exposure as much as possible for several months to minimize risks like hyperpigmentation and redness.
