Medical peeling is a quite frequent procedure that is used for the treatment of photo aging skin, deep wrinkles and fine lines, acne scars and to improve the skin vitality, tonus and texture. It is the most frequent derma-esthetic procedure in the world. This treatment is widely used today as an alternative of lasers or derma abrasions procedures.
During this procedure, there are used different acidic solutions (salicylic acid, lactic acid, glycolic acid) on the skin in order to stimulate the skin exfoliation, depigmentation and revitalization through promotion of the glycosaminoglycan’s, fibroblasts and remodeling of the elastin and collagen fibers. Chemical Peeling can be used to treat various skin problems. It’s a best choice for age spot treatment and pigmentation removal. Depending on the issues you’re addressing with the procedure, you’ll choose a chemical peel in one of three depths:
- Light peeling. A light (superficial) peeling removes the outer layer of skin (epidermis). It can be used to treat fine wrinkles, acne, uneven skin tone and dryness. You might have a light chemical peel as often as every two to five weeks — depending on your desired results.
- Medium peeling. This type of chemical peeling removes skin cells from the epidermis and from portions of the upper part of your middle layer of skin (dermis). A medium chemical peel can treat wrinkles, acne scars and uneven skin tone. You might repeat a medium chemical peel after three to nine months to maintain results.
- Deep peeling. A deep peeling removes skin cells from the epidermis and from portions of the mid to lower layer of your dermis. Your doctor might recommend a deep chemical peel if you have deeper wrinkles, scars or precancerous growths. A deep chemical peel can only be performed once.
