Everyday life is hard on your skin, especially the face. Skin peels are one of the ways that you can improve the look of your skin. There are many varieties of peel, each with their own unique benefits.
Skin peels remove the top layer of skin through a chemical reaction, leaving the healthier, more radiant layer showing. Chemical peels apply a chemical solution to kill the damaged outer layer.
The dead epidermis will fall off of the face over a specified period of time. Once all of the dead cells have fallen off, the healthier layer of your skin is left. Doctors use several types of chemical peels to help improve the look of your skin.
Croton oil chemical peels are some of the most potent peels used by doctors today. They are effective at removing blemishes, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections.
The croton oil peels have been reported to be so strong that they can get rid of cancerous skin cells. However, since the peels are so strong, they also have more serious side effects including skin lightening, damage, pain, itching, and more. Because croton oil peels are so strong, you want to speak to a doctor or cosmetic surgeon before you consider getting this form of peel.
TCA or Trichloracetic Acid peels are the most popular chemical peels available today. The TCA solution is applied to your skin, allowed to set, and then removed. Then, in about a week, the dead cells fall off to reveal the under layer of healthy skin.
TCA peels won’t cause your skin to become discoloured. However, you might notice that your skin will look awful during the week or so that it takes for the peel to remove the top layer.
If you feel that a more basic peel is enough to rejuvenate the look of your skin, you might be interested in an AHA peel. The peel uses hydroxyl acids to clean your skin, but won’t solve the more serious problems.
This peel is a cosmetic solution, because it does not completely remove a layer of skin. But the AHA peels still give your skin a more healthy appearance, without the need for sedation, which means you can go back to your life right away.
Your first step in deciding whether or not to get a skin peel is a visit to a doctor. Dermatologists are the only ones who can determine which, if any, peels are right for you and your skin. When used in the right circumstances, peels improve the look of your skin. Different peels have different effects on your skin, so you have to speak with your doctor to know what is best for you.
