Women all over the world are striving to preserve their beauty for as long as possible. While plastic surgeons are still trying to invent some new ways to change women’s look, we offer you one of the oldest beauty secrets existing: chemical peel. No dermal fillers will help you to look young if your skin isn’t healthy and smooth. And that’s when the chemical peel comes to the rescue.
During a chemical peel, a special solution is applied to the face. This results in the mild and careful removal of the outer skin layers without any critical damage. The amount of skin removed during such a procedure may vary according to the type of the chemical peel you are going for. Today we are going to talk about 3 main types of chemical peels – superficial, medium and deep. These vary in PH levels and proportion of active ingredients. Let’s have a closer look at each one.
Superficial Chemical Peel
Superficial peels, or light peels, are suitable for almost all skin types. This kind of peel is a short and gentle procedure which can be surely done during your lunch break – even if that’s the only time when you can pay attention to your beauty.
The light peel removes only the epidermis, which is the top layer of your skin, giving you smoother and younger look right on the spot. As a rule, light peels are made from glycolic, lactic and salicylic acids, also known as AHAs and BHAs.
Other popular ingredients for superficial peels are fruit enzymes and acids from natural sources, such as cranberries, pineapples, and pumpkins. With the new advanced peeling systems you can now get the light peel with the result almost as amazing as after a medium peel. This is possible thanks to the powerful anti-oxidants and vitamins which boost the regeneration of new and healthy skin cells.
Medium Chemical Peel
This type of chemical peel is perfect for dealing with pigmentation, sun damage, and wrinkles. Medium peel clearly gives better results than the superficial one. Yet, you should consider all the rest of the details as well. First, it is not a lunch break procedure. The treatment itself takes an hour, plus there is a recovery period.
Moreover, your sensations during the procedure will also differ. While superficial peel gives you a tingling sensation, most people experience slight discomfort during medium peel. At times, it gives them burning and stinging sensation which sometimes lasts up to 30 minutes after the treatments. You may even need to take a day off so you can give your skin some peaceful time to recover.
Deep Chemical Peel
Deep chemical peel is, without a doubt, the strongest facial peel ever existing. It achieves unbelievable results for deep wrinkles, serious sun damage and even scarring. Yet, you must be ready for the considerable aftermaths of this type of peel. To start with, there will be more initial damage to your skin. Correspondingly, you will need more time to recover.
The primary recovery lasts up to three weeks. Deep layer chemical peel is also more painful in comparison to the medium or light peeling. You will experience a sensation somewhat similar to that after the severe sunburn. Still, you should always think of the results you get in the long run. If you are eager to get the best treatment for your skin, you should be willing to dedicate some of your time and patience.
After all, a chemical peel is, by far, one of the most efficient ways to rejuvenate your skin. But it’s also one of the most complicated procedures. That’s why you should realize that chemical peel cannot be done at home. Furthermore, even not every beauty salon is able to perform the treatment without a risk for your health.
