There is nothing quite like chemical peels for renewing the skin’s surface. Peels are among the most popular non-invasive skin rejuvenating treatments because they treat the most common skin conditions. We are pleased to offer our clients a variety of peel options at North Dallas Dermatology Associates in Dallas, TX.
What Are Chemical Peels?
A chemical peel is an advanced skin exfoliating treatment that delivers fresh, smooth, and radiant skin. Applying the gentle acidic solution to the skin removes its damaged outer layer or layers. The result of removing this layer is younger, refreshed, and more even-looking skin.
Are There Different Types of Chemical Peels?
There are several types of chemical peels. Each type comes with its own unique set of active ingredients, benefits, and uses. The solution strength is one of the most significant differences among peel types. Superficial peels and medium-depth peels are the two strength categories.
Many peels fall into the popular superficial category. These peels penetrate the outermost layer of skin for removal. There is no downtime after a superficial peel, so it’s easy to fit an appointment into your schedule. A series of two to four superficial peels may provide results similar to those of a medium-depth peel.
Superficial peels are often made with ingredients like alpha-hydroxy (AHA), or fruit, lactic, salicylic, and glycolic acids.
Medium-depth peels penetrate deeper into the skin for more powerful skin rejuvenating results. The skin may continue to peel for two to seven days after medium-depth peel treatment. These peels use ingredients like trichloroacetic acid, which is a safe but potent solution for unwanted skin conditions.
