Chemical Peeling

Chemical Peeling

ABOUT THE PROCEDURE

Chemical peels are nonsurgical treatments causing controlled elimination (peel off) of surface cells through applying chemical solutions to the skin. Depending on the chemical solution and techniques used, there are 3 types of peeling related to the depth of treatment – surface, medium-depth, and in-depth peel.It is  medium-depth peel enhancing the skin appearance.

Indications:
wrinkles;
actinic keratosis;
pigmentation spots;
acne and acne scars;
skin rejuvenation;
flat verrucas;
freckles;
post lesional hyperpigmentation;
hypertrophic cicatrix.

Improvement of the skin condition following a chemical peeling is due to the elimination of the surface skin layer and uncovering of new more tender and younger looking skin. Meanwhile production of new collagen is stimulated until it is evenly accumulated and horizontally spread within the upper dermal papilla. It causes smoothing of lines and improvement of skin elasticity

Contraindications:
systemic retinoids;
tetracyclines;
oral contraceptives;
dermabrasion;
pregnancy;
herpes simplex;
infections.

Complications
Though rather rare side effects may appear under the form of hyper pigmentation, usually when patients have not fulfilled the recommendations for applying sun protective products. People with rather sun-tanned/dark (olive)might develop uneven pigmentation spots after the peeling.
