WHAT IS CHEMICAL PEEL: Medicated FACIAL

WHAT IS CHEMICAL PEEL


We can define Chemical peel as a medicated facial. Although there are wide range of chemical solution which can be used as chemical peel but simple explanation of chemical peel is that it works as peeler and peel off the dead part of skin. It is proven help full in may skin disease and gives glow , tightness and shining to skin. I regularly use chemical peel in acne, tanning, pigmentation, wrinkles and many other skin condition. So peel can be used  normally as well as some skin problem too.

MY SKIN IS FINE SHOULD I TAKE PEEL?

Yes as i said chemical peel basically remove dead skin. It helps in reducing wrinkles, tanning, acne, oily nature  and dust particles. It also acts on skin pores , open it and reduce chance of blackheads or white heads. So it is equally useful whether you have any skin disease or not. Infect it is sort of medicated facial by doctors . 

SHOULD I TAKE FACIAL AFTER PEEL?

No, peel is much far better and medically proven method to maintain skin tone, glow, tightness and texture. Once you enroll and start taking chemical peel you should not go to beauty parlor for non medicated beauty enhancing procedure. Actually we strictly should not use any other irritating chemical while peel procedures. 

CAN I USE MAKEUP?

2-3 days from peel we should avoid makeup and too much sun exposure. But after 2-3 days once the skin is healed you can get light make up. And after 1 week skin becomes normal and you can use any type make up and chemical over skin. 

PROCEDURE, TIME, SESSIONS 

Chemical peel is liquid solution which contain mild acid. Glycolic peel, salicylic peel, mandalic peel and many more the type of peel. Doctor chooses the peel type according to skin texture and condition. Peel should be done in session wise. Normally 6 to 8 sessions are required to complete the whole process and between two peel there should be gap of 2-3 weeks. Initially we take lesser strength of peel and per session increase the strength. Face, back, hand, or any desired skin part can treated and strength also varies with place. After chemical peel person should strictly use sunscreen and avoid sun exposure as much as possible. Chemical peel not only remove dead skin but also activates
deep dermal collagen system and suppress melanin system. So it cause improvement in skin texture , color, wrinkles, tightness, oilyness.

POST PEEL PRECAUTION AND COMPLICATION

Although procedure is very safe but if not done carefully then certainly cause trouble. In precaution person should use sunscreen, avoid sunlight, avoid other makeup or beauty related cosmetics , should not rub face wash or soap. Person should inform the doctor about any skin disease like herpes, rosacea, seborrhea etc.  
      Complication are less but few are very common but treatable. Pigmentation can come if strength of peel is more. Redness, itching, irritation , infection may come but can be minimize if done properly and carefully.
