What Are Chemical Peels?

A chemical peel is a method in which a chemical solution, usually an acid, is applied to the skin. During this time, the solution penetrates the uppermost layers of the skin allowing the peel to achieve a certain depth. These treatments activate cell renewal, encourage collagen production, and prepare the skin to receive active ingredients and nutrients.
This chemical will help the upper layers of the epidermis rejuvenate by peeling off dead skin cells and improving the overall condition of your skin.
Standard ingredients in a chemical peel are :
● Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) like: (lactic acid, glycolic acid, malic acid, and citric acid) or:
● Beta hydroxy acids (BHA) like: salicylic acid.

This peel is the best for those worried about their skin having a negative reaction to a new treatment.

Salicylic peel

Salicylic peel, derived from salt, works well for those struggling with acne. This chemical peel uses salicylic acid to fight bacteria, control oil levels, and exfoliate.

What are the Benefits of those Peels?

1- Benefits of Glycolic Peel:

The glycolic acid is suitable for normal-to-dry, to reduce anti-aging and hyperpigmentation
  • Refines fine lines and wrinkles: helps to remove dead skin that has settled into fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet near the eyes and mouth, making them less visible.
  • Reveals clearer, glowing skin: chemical peels remove the flaky, irregularly-attached dead skin cells from the face, leading to a compact stratum corneum that reflects a beautiful glow.
  • Reduce hyperpigmentation and lighten dark spots: peels accelerate the cell’s turn over and boost collagen which helps to fade hyperpigmentation, dark spots, age spots, acne scars, and overall clear complexion
  • Improve skin texture: this procedure is perfect for promoting collagen production to tighten and smooth out skin and decrease the appearance of pores. The result is a fine and nice skin texture.
  • Improves efficacy of other skincare products: Because peels remove the top layer of skin, it’s able to help other products you put on your skin penetrate deeper.
Improve the appearance of sagging skin: Collagen is a natural substance in the body that gives the skin volume & elasticity, but production decreases as a person ages. One of the major benefits of a medical-grade glycolic chemical peel is that collagen production will be stimulated. This will improve your skin’s elasticity and firmness, giving you a youthful look.

2- Benefits of Salicylic Peel

Many skin types can benefit from salicylic acid peels, especially those struggling with acne. Salicylic acid is a BHA that’s effective at targeting the oil glands. This type of peel is great for someone with congested, acne-prone skin, as salicylic acid is oil-soluble so it penetrates deep into your pores to clear congestion. It can also clear away oils that build up and cause blackheads and whiteheads, which means this chemical peel uses salicylic acid to fight bacteria, control oil levels, and exfoliate.
●       Treats acne, and blackheads and prevents breakouts: Salicylic peels help with acne because they lower the pH of the skin, making bacteria uncomfortable and unable to survive. They are also comedolytic which means they help remove the surface skin debris leading to unclogged pores and a healthier complexion.
●       Decreases oil production: Sebum is a natural oil that moisturizes your skin. Too much oil and dead skin cells together can clog your pores and cause a breakout. Salicylic acid is effective at targeting the oil glands and lowers the amount of oil in the skin with acne.
●       Anti-Inflammatory: Salicylic acid has anti-inflammatory properties that can offer relief to inflamed breakouts, redness, and swelling caused by acne. Regular salicylic acid peels can help improve both inflammatory acne and comedonal acne.
  • Reduces sun damage: salicylic peel can Improve hyperpigmentation, and discoloration, and fade dark spots and sun spots by breaking down the superficial layer of the skin which helps rejuvenate the skin and improve appearance.‌
  • Tightens facial pores: Because of the exfoliating property.
  • Improves the texture and brightens the skin.

3- Benefits of Lactic Peel:

This gentle peel helps to firm skin, relieve redness, and hydrate dry, dull skin. Lactic acid naturally activates the skin’s water molecules to help plump, hydrate, and retain moisture.
  • Sensitive Skin: this great substance is therefore a good choice for people with sensitive skin or who have rosacea. It is also free of risks or complications, making it a good choice for those new to chemical peels.
  • Hydratation: it is unusual for an exfoliator to rehydrate and moisturize the skin. This distinguishes lactic acid from other chemicals. It draws hydration and makes skin soft since it is a humectant.
  • Melanin inhibitor: Melanin is the pigment in your skin, and while it is responsible for the controlled tans we like, it is also responsible for the discoloration and dark spots we don’t like. Lactic acid can actually inhibit excessive melanin production so as to help lighten the skin and remove undesirable discolorations, dark spots, and uneven tone.
  • Exfoliating the skin and promoting collagen and elastin production: Lactic acid can work to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, which promotes the natural collagen and elastin production that keeps skin looking firm and healthy.
  • Creating smooth and flawless skin: It is, unfortunately, natural for our skin to become thicker and rougher as we age, but the exfoliating properties of lactic acid can help to ensure that the thick, rough layer is removed to reveal smoother, flawless skin underneath.
  • Diminishes post-acne redness and inflammation: Lactic acid is an optimal treatment for rosacea-prone skin since it will kill germs and destroy and shed dead skin cells.

Why Choose a Chemical Peel?

It’s no longer a secret: sun exposure, smoking, pollution, hormonal changes, and aging all cause, over the years, some unwanted reactions to the skin like fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, uneven complexion, open pores, acne, rough texture, black and white heads and more, In fact, every day, your skin follows a natural cell renewal process, where old skin cells die and are replaced with new cells that are lifted from the basic layer between dermis and epidermis. Medical grade peeling is an aesthetical technique used to reproduce and stimulate this cell renewal process, the action of which is less efficient with the passing years. The peeling technique aims at eliminating the dermis of dead skin cells (surface layer of skin) and at stimulating the basic layer. The results are just amazing! You get smoother and glowing skin. And you will notice a reduction in wrinkles and sunspots.

How many treatments are needed?

Even though visible results are noticeable from the first treatment, it is suggested to proceed to a 3-to-6 treatment for optimal results.
Every two or three weeks, peelings are recommended according to the advice of your skin care specialist. The number of treatments may be increased, depending on the severity of the condition to be treated.
