Our skin is one of the strongest organs in our body. It protects the body from all sorts of harsh toxins, germs, pollutants, and chemicals. In the process, because it is the most exposed part of our body, it ends up bearing the brunt of the damage. Exposure to the harsh rays of the sun, pollution, and all sorts of dust and germs cause your face to develop rashes, dark spots, discoloration, and acne. Your skin will be in worse shape due to all this.

Get Help for Your Skin

A chemical peel is a technique that is used to improve and smooth out the texture of your skin. Chemical peels actually remove the outer damaged layers of the skin, making way for new skin cells to grow.

A chemical peel can improve the condition of the skin immensely. It can be used on the face, neck, and even hands. It not only helps remove damaged skin but also reduces fine lines and wrinkles that may be caused by aging or sun damage. It can even remove mild scars and acne. Chemical peels help get rid of age spots, freckles, and dark spots. They make your skin smooth, soft, and fresh.

What to Expect

Before you sign up for this treatment, you need to tell your doctor about your medical history and your aesthetic goals. You will need to stay off certain drugs before the treatment.

Before the procedure starts, your skin will be cleaned thoroughly. A chemical solution that might include glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, or carbolic acid will then be applied on to the surface of the skin to be treated. These different types of chemical peels are used for different skin types and different reasons.

After application of the peel, the skin will blister up and eventually peel away. You might experience a slight stinging feeling during the procedure, which will fade away in a few minutes.

The new skin that will form is a lot smoother and less wrinkled in comparison to the old skin. The newly formed skin is fragile and needs to be protected from the sun.

The Benefits
