Chemical Peels remove damaged outer skin to bring out fresh underlying skin with better color, texture, and tone. A chemical solution applied on the face, neck, or arms causes the outer skin layer to expand that is peeled off.
Professional advice is necessary to analyze your skin damage, choose the chemical and its concentration, and to take necessary precautions. For specialist opinion on chemical peel facials in Allen, Texas, visit SilkDerm Laser Medical Clinic.
Chemical peels can be superficial, medium, or deep and are effective against:
wrinkles, mild scars, & stretch marks
blemishes & sun burns
blackheads & whiteheads
Sags, bulges, severe wrinkles and deep scars cannot be fixed by chemical peels and require cosmetic surgery.
Chemicals required depend on the damage. They include:
Lactic Acid or Milk Acid is the most natural peeling chemical. It improves the skin tone and texture
Trichloro Acetic Acid (TCA) is effective against wrinkles, blotches, age spots, dark circles under eyes, and discoloration
Glycolic Acid is Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA), a natural chemical derived from sugarcane that removes dead skin and moisturizes new skin
Salicyclic Acid is natural Beta-Hydroxy Acid (BHA) derived from the bark of willow tree. It can treat acne, uneven skin pigmentation, wrinkles, and blemishes
