Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a method for enhancing the look of the skin on the hands, neck, or face. It is a procedure in which a chemical solution is administered to the skin in order to exfoliate and ultimately peel off the skin’s damaged outer layer. When the new skin is exposed, it is less wrinkly and smoother. Limiting exposure and using a decent sunscreen are advised because it might be sensitive to the sun for a few days.

  • Effectively reduce the appearance of tiny wrinkles around the mouth and beneath the eyes with a chemical peel.
  • Treat facial creases that have developed as a result of ageing and sun exposure.
  • Improve the look of small scars
  • Treat certain forms of acne
  • Reduce the appearance of age, patches, and other blemishes brought on by pregnancy or a birth control side effect.
  • Enhance the skin’s look
  • Chemical Peels: Types
  • The depth of the skin determines how effectively chemical peels are categorised. There are three types of peels: superficial, medium, and deep, depending on the pigmentation and skin issues. Typically, 6 to 8 sessions are advised, which can be repeated after 15 days or as advised by the dermatologist at Sanjay Rithik Hospital.

Peels that are superficial or light

These peels include alpha-hydroxy acids. They get all the way down to the stratum corneum, the outermost layer. They are employed to cure acne, lighten discolouration, and improve the appearance of moderate skin.
