Healthy, vibrant and glowing skin is the main pre-requisite for a charming face. One of the most popular and effective procedures is the chemical peel, which gives your skin the opportunity for a fresh start. A skin peel enhances and smoothens the texture of the skin. It is an effective treatment for facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation. Skin Peels exfoliate the outer layers of dead skin, revealing a new skin layer with improved tone, texture, and colour.
Today, Skin peels are popular because they offer nearly immediate results and can be performed as an outpatient procedure.
Glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that occurs naturally in sugar cane, is the most common ingredient of light skin peels. The ingredients and formulation of a light skin peel, however, depend upon the specific patient’s skin care needs. With light chemical peels, the solution is left on the skin for a relatively short amount of time.
When applied to the face or another part of the body, the AHA skin peel solution works by removing the outer layers of skin so that a new, smooth layer of skin is revealed. The action of the solution stimulates theproduction of elastin and collagen, essential components of healthy, youthful skin.
When a Cosmetologist refers to “salicylic peels,” he or she is referring to a beta hydroxy acid peel.
The most common beta hydroxy acid, salicylic acid, has been used for decades as an acne remedy, and salicylic acid chemical peels are especially effective in eliminating acne. Beta hydroxy acids are helpful because they can exfoliate oily skin and deeply penetrate the skin with no irritation.
Cosmelan has become the treatment of choice for melasma and especially for sensitive skin types prone to hyperpigmentation from sun exposure, heat or blemishes. Cosmelan works by blocking the action of the process that causes hyperpigmentation.
Cosmelan is a 2 step intensive topical treatment system designed to reduce and regulate stubborn and dense pigmentation and blotchiness. Cosmelan’s blend of synergistic ingredients work fairly quickly, resulting in an effective blending and reduction of undesirable pigment.
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) can be used in many concentrations, but it is most commonly used for medium-depth peeling. Fine surface wrinkles, superficial blemishes and pigment problems are commonly improved with TCA peels.
Trichloracetic acid (TCA) peels work by coagulating protein. Typical strengths used vary from 15% up to 50% (although when treating acne scars, higher strengths are used with great success). TCA peels may or may not contain dyes to make them blue. (Most people have heard of Blue Peel. which includes a blue dye so it is visually easy to apply.)
Retinoic acid peel (yellow peel) belongs to skin treatments with a short recovery period. Retinoids (synthesized equivalents of vitamin A) regulate the processes of differentiation, proliferation, and intercellular communication. When retinoids get into a cell, they make a bond with nuclear sensors. As a result, particular sections of the cell genome are activated or decelerated.
The main advantages of this treatment are minimal skin damage, a brief recovery period and a low probability of complications. Retinoic acid peel can also effectively cleanse the skin, has anti-inflammatory effects, makes skin glow, improves skin texture and structure, and provides a lifting effect.
After a thorough cleaning, the appropriate Peel is gently applied to your face.
As the solution works on the skin, the patient will typically feel a warm tingling or stinging sensation. After the solution has been on the skin for the prescribed amount of time, the physician will wash it away with water and apply a soothing lotion.
The entire process of a light skin peel treatment usually takes less than an hour, and the patient typically experiences little or no skin redness or other side effects. After a light chemical peel, the patient can expect to return to daily activities immediately. Multiple treatments are usually necessary to achieve optimal results.
