What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a minimally invasive anti-aging treatment that is performed by applying various chemical solutions in order to improve the quality and structure of the skin. Chemical peels help cleanse pores, establish seboregulation, improve skin texture and stimulate collagen synthesis in deeper layers of the skin. The purpose of chemical peels is to remove the layer of dead epidermal cells and allow the skin to regenerate. There are several types of chemical peels that are adapted to each skin type and condition.
There are various types of acids used to make solutions for peels such as glycolic, salicylic, mandelic, pyruvic, TCA, phenolic, etc. A lot of acids used in the cosmetic industry are derived from fruits and for that reason you can usually hear a term “treatment with fruit acids”. Depending on their concentration, peels can be extremely mild, so-called superficial or strong – deep peels. The strength of the exfoliation is not only influenced by the concentration of the acid in the solution, but also by the pH value of the solution, so be careful when choosing the exfoliating product. 20% acid of one brand can be up to three times stronger than, for example, 70% of acid of another brand.
Do I need to do a series of treatments or one treatment is enough?
The number of treatments depends on the problem which needs to be solved. If we treat hyperpigmentation, acne and acne scars, a series of treatments need to be done, followed by occasional maintenance treatments. The number of treatments also depends on the strength of the peels that we use. For example, a phenolic acid peel, which is the deepest peel you can do, can only be done once every 10 years.
When is the best time for a chemical peel?
Winter is the most ideal time for chemical peels. If you do peels during the summer months, it is essential that you use SPF cream during the day, otherwise you may get sunburn and hyperpigmentation. During the summer, only superficial peels can be done, while deep chemical peels should only be done during the winter. After chemical peels, it is recommended to use moisturizing creams and creams with a SPF (sun protective factor). The recovery period is different depending on the strength of the exfoliation. For superficial peels, the recovery period is only a few days and you are allowed to use makeup, but after deep peels it is not recommended to leave the house for ten days and it is forbidden to use makeup.
