Chemical peeling agents are used to improve the texture of the skin. Chemical peels are intended to remove the outermost layer of the skin by controlled chemical burns. The dead skin eventually peels off. The regenerated skin is more smooth, lighter and less wrinkled.
Various types of peeling agents are available- glycolic acid peel for pigmentation and anti ageing, salicylic acid peel for acne, lactic acid peel for glow etc
- Acne, superficial acne scars
- Pigmentary condition - melasma, photomelanosis
- Photoageing, fine lines
- Under eye circles
Amount of skin getting peeled depends on the type of chemical used and for how long peel was kept on face. Immediate redness of skin is seen after procedure. With in next 3 to 5 days slight scaling of skin develops. After one week glowing and smooth skin becomes evident.
