Chemical peel is a skin care for anyone who had skin with fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, acne scarring, dark spots, and post-acne hyperpigmentation. It is a skin treatment that improves and smoothens the surface of the facial skin. Today, it is becoming a core part of skin care as it helps in removing the top layer of the skin that allows the dead surface skin to peel off. Going through this process leads to the growth of new skin.
Categories in chemical peel
There are three different types of chemical peels, namely superficial, medium, and deep peels, and each of them is categorized as per the strength they carry. This also varies in how deeply it penetrates the skin. For instance, the deeper peels take greater recovery time.
Skin conditions for a chemical peel
Chemical peels are used to treat the following skin conditions;
– Helps reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging skin, especially under the eye, and on the corners of the mouth.
– Chemical peels are ideal for acne-prone skin. The treatment includes exfoliation that allows the removal of dead skin in an effective manner. This further helps get rid of excess oil from the skin. Additionally, the treatment unblocks the hair follicles and pores, reducing the pimples to occur while improving the texture of the skin at the same time.
– If you are facing Melasma, going for the treatment is beneficial for you. One session of the peel helps in lightening the appearance of dark and discolored skin as a result of Melasma.
– The treatment is also effective for everyone with hyperpigmentation. This problem is mainly a result of uneven skin tone and going for the treatment helps with lightening the skin and making sure the even appearance of the skin.
– Chemical peels are also effective for large freckles that appear as dark spots on the skin. Since these appear as a result of excessive exposure to the sun, going for the treatment can lighten at first and then improve with every other session.
These also help with improving the rough texture of the skin.
How many chemical peels do you need?
When having the first session, you may see the limited results as this is gentler than the rest of the treatments. If you are willing to get the best results, this is possible right after six peels that are performed with every two weeks interval.

Post to chemical peel treatment, one may notice the temporary redness on the skin and some may experience dry and flaky skin for a few days. The after-care only includes not touching the peel in the sense that you pick up any spot or peel off the flakes. Let them be there and ensure any physical activity for a day and facial sessions for at least a week.
