How A Chemical Peel Can Help Your Skin Become Soft And Smooth Again

When expertly done, a chemical peel containing alpha hydroxy acid can remove the top layer of skin that has been damaged due to overexposure to the sun, aging and other causes. When this damaged skin is removed by a chemical peel, it will help stimulate the growth of healthy, fresh skin cells. In addition to its cosmetic advantage of helping you appear younger, it can also eliminate pre-cancerous cells from further developing and spreading to other parts of your body.

Can I choose which type of peel I get?

Your dermatologist will go over the options available to treat you skin problem, be it acne or pre-cancerous growths. The three degrees of chemical peels available are light, medium or deep. A light peel is the mildest and it works best to remove or reduce acne, rough or dry skin, uneven pigmentation, fine wrinkles and minimal damage due to overexposure to the sun. A medium chemical peel works better on removing stubborn acne, discoloration and can correct fine wrinkles. A deep chemical peel is usually reserved for severely damaged skin, deep wrinkles and pre-cancerous growths on the skin. A deep chemical peel is usually not recommended unless the skin problem is severe or there are pre-cancerous cells present on the skin.
