Chemical skin peels stimulate collagen synthesis and can help in the treatment of fine lines, sun damage, irregular texture, superficial wrinkles, to reduce acne and acne scarring. They are also effective in treating pigmentation problems (dark areas or areas of discoloration), age spots and to reduce pore size.
Gentle Chemical skin peels are recommended for early signs of sun damage and ageing of the skin. Glycolic acid is a gentle peel that can progress to medium depth peel, according to concentration. It is recommended for sensitive, oily skins and those with rosacea. Lactic acid and salicylic acid are recommended for acne-prone skin.
Medium depth Chemical skin peels, such as TCA, penetrate deeper to reach the medium layers of the skin. They are recommended for deeper lines, acne scarring and some pigmented lesions. They are also effective for sun damage, open pores and poor texture. Medium skin peels are not suitable for darker more sensitive skin types or anybody prone to hyper-pigmentation.
