A chemical peeling is oft-reported to be one of the surgical therapies to replace dead skin and give way to new skin. Chemical peels from phenol, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and alphahydroxy acids (AHAs) are used in different intensity to remove the old layer of skin. However, chemical peels are used in different combinations with Retin-A or AHA creams, sunscreens and pre-treatments to adjust the depth of the effect of the peels.
Though there are claims of a wrinkle-free, patch-free and lighter-toned skin, yet dermatologists suggest not taking chemical peels as topical exfoliates and trusting on unskilled cosmetic surgeons and resurfacing agents for best results but the contrary.
Chemical peels should be properly planned and doubts should be dispelled before every seating. Chemical peels work wonderfully to resurface new skin and give your skin a permanent glow if they are undertaken with pre-tests of peels on hands and behind the ears.
