Moderate Chemical Peels
We use ethanoic acid (TCA) for moderate facial peels. This chemical works splendidly for treating fine wrinkles, blemishes and pigmentation problems. TCA peels are the best alternative for patients who have darker skin.
Deep Chemical Peels
The most effective and best facial peels are the deep chemical peels. Phenol acid is used for deep chemical peels. Deep peels are often used to get rid of blemishes, abrasive facial wrinkles that occurred because of ageing or sun exposure. Even though a deep chemical peel imparts the most dramatic, long-lasting results, the procedure takes longer than diverse peels (one or two hours) and also necessitates the maximum healing time.

Before doing the chemical peeling, the doctor may request you to stop taking some medicines and prepare your skin with relevant preconditioning drugs like Retin-A, Renova or glycolic acid. After the chemical peel, it is vital to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen on a routine basis.

This also depends on the kind and strength of the peel. Some peels will entail no downtime or aftercare, other than the use of a moisturizer with an SPF. You may not even “peel” after that. With stronger peels, you might entail a downtime of a couple of weeks and see more peeling of the treated regions. During this downtime, you will need to steer clear of the sun and use a specified moisturizer. These stronger peels are usually administered by a doctor, while the less dramatic peels can be done by a licensed esthetician.
