Chemical peel uses a chemical solution to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. It is helpful for those individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. Glycolic acids /alphahydoxy acids/ are used for this purpose. AHA peels may be used to treat fine wrinkling,areas of dryness,uneven pigmentation and acne. Varios concentrations of an AHA may be applied weekly or at longer intervals to obtain the best results.
With an AHA peel, the temporary redness,flaking and dryness that you experience will not prevent you from working or engaging in your normal activities. A fresher and improved skin texture will result with continued AHA treatments. Remember,protecting your skin from the sun is also importent following these mild acid peels. Ask your doctor to recommend a sunblock with adequate UVA and UVB protection and use it every day.
