Peeling Treatments A chemical peel is a body treatment technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin using a chemical solution that causes the dead skin to slough off and eventually peel off. The regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Thus the term chemical peel is derived. Some types of chemical peels can be purchased and administered without a medical license, however people are advised to seek professional help from a dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or otolaryngologist on a specific type of chemical peel before a procedure is performed.
Trichloroacetic Acid Peels Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is used as an intermediate to deep peeling agent in concentrations ranging from 20-50%. Depth of penetration is increased as concentration increases, with 50% TCA penetrating into the reticular dermis. Concentrations higher than 35% are not recommended because of the high risk of scarring.
Trichloroacetic Acid Peels:
- are preferred for darker-skinned patients over Phenol
- smooth out fine surface wrinkles
- remove superficial blemishes
- correct skin pigment problems
Fruit Peels Many people do not realize how acidic fruits such as oranges and apples are. The chemicals contained in these fruits are called glycolic acid. A fruit acid peel is a procedure that uses these natural acids to remove layers of skin. There are several noted benefits associated with such a procedure, including tone and texture improvement. A fruit acid peel can do more than remove layers of dead and damaged skin. These glycolic acids can also penetrate the remaining skin, providing a thorough cleansing action. This can help prevent and fight acne. Generally, the glycolic acid is applied to the skin. The acidity levels can vary from one product to another. In many instances, a person begins getting procedures with a solution that has low acidity levels, and gradually, as she returns to have the procedure repeated, solutions with higher acidity levels are used. After the acid is applied, it is usually left on the skin for five minutes or less. After this time, a neutralizing agent may be applied to the areas where the acid was. The neutralizing agent basically stops the acid from working. Once this is done, the area is usually cleaned and other products such as serum, moisturizers, and sun block may be applied.The effects of a fruit acid peel are often not immediate. A person may have to have the procedure performed several times before she notices any drastic results. Even after each peel, the results may not be seen for several days or a week. This is because the top layers of skin are not usually immediately removed. Instead, they peel off during the days following the procedure.
