Brief Details About Skin Peels

What is a skin Peels?

Skin peels are cosmetic treatments involving the application of chemical solutions to the skin’s surface. These solutions remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells, stimulating cell renewal and revealing smoother, fresher skin. Commonly used for anti-aging, acne treatment, and improving skin texture, they can be customized to address specific skin concerns.

How does it Work?

Skin peels work by applying a chemical solution, typically containing an acid like glycolic, salicylic, or lactic acid, to the skin’s surface. These acids dissolve the bonds holding the cells together, causing the outermost layer of dead skin cells to peel off. As the damaged skin is removed, new, healthier skin is revealed. The process also stimulates collagen production, which helps improve skin texture and elasticity. The depth of the peel can be controlled, allowing for customized treatments to address various skin concerns.

How is the Treatment Administered?

Skin peel treatment is typically administered in a dermatologist’s office or a medical spa. Before the treatment, the skin is thoroughly cleansed. The chemical solution is then applied to the targeted areas using a cotton ball, brush, or sponge. The patient may feel a slight stinging or burning sensation, which usually subsides within a few minutes. After the solution has been left on the skin for the prescribed amount of time, it is neutralized and removed. A soothing cream or moisturizer is then applied to the treated area. Post-treatment care instructions are provided to ensure proper healing and to minimize any potential side effects.
