Chemical peels are good for the skin

A chemical peeling is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin of the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually to peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun.

WHAT CHEMICALS SKIN PEELS DO?

Chemical peeling agents resurface the skin by inducing a controlled wound and thus removing superficial layers of the skin. As a result, chemical peels promote the growth of a new healthy top skin layer and improve skin problems like hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven texture and skin impurities.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING TREATMENT?

Procedures may vary dependent on the type of chemical peel chosen. Skin is prepared using a medical degreaser to ensure the treated area is free of any oils left on the skin.
The chemical agent is then applied and typically remains on the skin for 3 to 5 minutes. Most patients feel a mild stinging which is temporary and usually subsides after few minutes.
some peels are designed to self-neutralize and may remain on your skin for 2- 4 hours.

WHY DID I NOT HAVE ANY VISIBLE PEELING AFTER MY PEEL?

The amount of peeling may vary depending on individual skin condition at the time of the peel or the depth of the peel. Regardless of the degree of peeling, the skin is still sloughing off at an accelerated rate, resulting in the improvement of skin tone and texture, and an improvement of fine lines and uneven pigmentation.

WHO ARE NOT CANDIDATES FOR A CHEMICAL PEEL?

Chemical peels should be avoided if any of the following conditions are present:
Active cold sores, herpes simplex or warts in the area to be treated.

Wounded sunburned or excessively sensitive skin.
“Accutane” use within the last year.

History of recent chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
Allergies to aspirin.

Women who are pregnant or actively breastfeeding.
Patients with a history of autoimmune disease (Such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, lupus, multiple sclerosis etc) or any condition that may weaken their immune system.
