What is Chemical Peeling?

A healthy skin has distinguishable characteristics that sets it apart and make you more beautiful. Features of a healthy skin include:

  • It is plain and soft with minimum stratum;
  • Due to the production of collagen and elastin, it is firm with good lift (it is not loose and sagging);
  • Has a uniform color and does not have dark or light parts areas;
  • It has enough moisture and is not too dry or greasy;
  • There are no wounds, damages or scars present; 
  • The skin repair process is carried out daily and after injury; 
  • It is resistant to damage and external harmful phenomenon;

The skin may lose its health due to various factors such as aging, weight gain and environmental damage, and lack some of the characteristics of healthy skin. In such cases, using the following cosmetic treatment can help us:

Filler Injection
They are compositions that are injected at the desired location.

Fat Injection
In this method, the dermatologist will remove fat from other areas of the body such as the abdomen, hips, thighs and buttocks and reinjects them into the desired area.

Laser Peeling
The laser beam from the Fractional RF and IPL devices deteriorate the surface layers and dead skin cells.

This increases the production of collagen in the skin and improves the quality of the skin.

In this method, carbon dioxide gas is injected to improve blood flow and help boost repairing in the area.

The very small needles of the microneedling device increases the collagen production and blood supply of the skin.

Physical Exfoliation With Microdermabrasion
Mechanical exfoliation removes the outer layers of the skin with special blades, resulting in the removal of skin scars and increasing collagen production and skin health.

Facelift By Surgery
In this method, the doctor removes excess skin of the target area to lift the face or body and get them a better shape.

The other alternative method is chemical peeling which is discussed below.

The term Peeling actually expresses removing the surface layers of the skin and damaged cells. Peeling with different methods such as using laser, physical treatment and chemicals causes the elimination of dead cells and increases the radiance of the skin. We are going to focus on Chemical Peeling.

In chemical peeling, doctors use acidic solutions to remove unhealthy layers of skin. For this reason, it is also called acid therapy. This method destroys the stratum corneum of the skin and promotes the growth of cells and collagen. In fact, chemical peeling causes a controlled damage to the surface of the skin that penetrates to a certain depth and improves the condition of the skin. Skin acid therapy has found its place among cosmetic treatments all over the world.

Considering the variety of cosmetic methods and related procedures, it is important to choose a specialist and experienced doctor. Medpaltrip makes this choice easy for you and will help you achieve your desired result.

There are countless types of fruit acids called peeling creams or exfoliating creams available in the market that can which candidates can use at home. Citric acid in citrus, malic acid in apples, tartaric acid in grapes and lactic acid in sour milk are in this category. However, The effectiveness of this method is superficial. This type of peeling is useful for chemical peels around the eyes and sensitive areas.

Superficial Chemical Peeling

In this method, the acids only penetrate into the epidermis (the surface layer of the skin) and eliminate previous skin damage. The acids used in this method are mainly diluted acids such as lactic acid, glycolic acid and salicylic acid. The effects of surface peeling include:

  • Removing skin blemishes and pimples;
  • Increasing the radiance and softness of the skin;
  • Cleansing open pores of the skin;
  • Treating active acne;
  • Helping create an even and smooth skin surface;

Medium Chemical Peeling

In Medium Chemical Peeling, the exfoliating acid penetrates the epidermis and the upper layers of the dermis (the underlying layer of the skin). The most commonly used acids are highly concentrated glycolic acid, TCA and ginseng solution. This type of peeling helps remove scars, blemishes and melasma, sunken acne scars, deeper wrinkles and severe sun damage. Medium chemical; peeling treatment takes about one to two weeks and is repeatable after a few weeks. This type of exfoliation creates a controlled second-degree burn stain and hence requires the supervision of a certified doctor.

Deep Chemical Peeling

Different types of phenols are usually used in deep chemical peels and so the peeling lasts up to two weeks. As a result, the inflammation may last for at least two weeks. This procedure requires local anesthesia and sedation. Deep chemical peeling must requires a trained and experienced doctor in order to avoid any complications. It is possible to do this type of peeling again after a few months.
