Chemical Peeling - Twacha Aesthetic Skin Clinic

Skin imperfections? Brighten and clarify your skin and make it look flawless with chemical peels!

The non-surgical skin resurfacing technique known as a chemical peel, also known to as derma peeling or chemexfoliation, involves applying an acid-based formula to the skin in order to make it elastic, smooth, and soft. It is a well-known aesthetic procedure that gives the skin a youthful, radiant appearance. The chemical solution gently exfoliates the skin by removing the superficial layer of dead skin cells once it has dried. Additionally, this procedure boosts cell turnover and collagen formation, exposing the new, healthy skin underlying. The type of chemical peel utilised, the strength of the acid used, and the length of time the acid is left on the skin determine how much skin is removed. Chemical peels can be applied to various body regions, but they are most frequently used to treat skin issues on the hands and face.

Skin imperfections managed by chemical peels

Many skin complaints are associated with an unnecessary build-up of dead skin cells which makes the skin appear thick and dull, usually clogging the skin pores. Chemical peels offer a revolutionary approach to help with a wide range of skin concerns, such as:

  • Sun-damaged skin.
  • Acne breakouts including blackheads and excessively oily skin.
  • Dull and aging skin.
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars.
  • Skin pigmentation disorders like Melasma.
  • Sun or age spots and freckles.
  • Enlarged pores and uneven skin tone caused by hypopigmentation (skin lightening) or hyperpigmentation (skin darkening).

Twacha Aesthetic Clinic Skin provides the best chemical peel treatment. It is performed by skin experts who first analyze the skin concerns and then choose the chemical peel strength accordingly.

 

Types of chemical peels used for skin rejuvenation

1. Superficial or Light Peel: In this form, the skin is exfoliated by piercing the skin’s outer layer with a light alpha-hydroxy composition, such as glycolic acid. Only the damaged epidermal skin layers are removed, leaving a fresh, clear, bright, and smooth skin surface behind. This aids in reducing sebum production, clearing the pores, getting rid of blackheads, and revitalising dull, damaged skin. Aging skin and acne scars may often require 3 to 6 rounds of mild peels.

2. Medium Peel: This method involves penetrating the outer and intermediate layers of the skin with medium-strength acids. The epidermis and higher dermal layers of the skin are both removed using this peel. It works well to address skin imperfections like freckles, age spots, acne scars, and mild to moderate skin discolouration. The skin doesn’t start mending for one to two weeks. Medical skin professionals with the necessary training do this sort of peeling. More than one peel may be utilised for scars that are deeper and have more noticeable fine lines and wrinkles.

The blue skin peels from Agera and Obagi are among the most well-known medium peels and the best remedies for uneven skin tone. These peels remove the outermost layer of the skin, naturally suppress the production of melanin in dark spots to help balance hyperpigmentation, repair sun-damaged skin and shield it from the sweltering rays, and promote the growth of new collagen and elastin to give the skin a healthy, glowing appearance. Ascorbic acid, citric acid, salicylic acid, and lactic acid are the active chemicals used to lighten skin.

3. Deep Peel: This peel is used to exfoliate the skin thoroughly because it uses potent acids that can profoundly enter the lower dermal layers of the skin, such as trichloroacetic acid or phenol. It is a strenuous skin resurfacing process to provide a significant, long-lasting improvement in skin look. Freckles, moderate fine lines and wrinkles, deep acne scars like boxcar, rolling, and ice-pick depressed acne scars, deep open or conspicuous pores, and freckles can all be treated with it. Only one peel session is required for this procedure, which is carried out by skilled physicians at Twacha Skin, to improve the skin’s appearance. However, it is linked to prolonged recovery times (i.e. 14-21 days of skin healing). TCA CROSS treatments may be repeated after 2 to 8 weeks, depending on a number of variables. Combining it with dermal fillers, microneedling, subcision, fractional laser therapy, and topical retinoids can be used to treat acne scars.

With improvements in cosmetic dermatology, the carbon laser peel, which uses chemical peels alongside lasers to treat mild to severe skin problems, has gained popularity. It is a fantastic approach to maintain and revitalise the skin and a minimally invasive method of skin resurfacing. An application of carbon paste is followed by the use of a Q-switched Nd: Yag laser. It aids in clearing the sebaceous glands of germs and extra oil discharges. The process aims to exfoliate the skin, reduce pore size, smooth it out, brighten the face, and give it a softer, more radiant appearance.

Ideal candidates for chemical peel treatment

  • Chemical peels are recommended for anyone seeking flawless-looking skin with realistic expectations and mild to moderate skin imperfections.
  • These are not effective for patients who have existing skin issues like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis, sunburn, broken skin, or active cold sores.

During the first visit to a skin expert at Twacha Aesthetic Clinic Skin, the patient’s skin is assessed, thoroughly examined to ensure whether he/she is an ideal candidate for chemical peels. If yes, the treatment options are discussed. The strength of the peel that is suitable for the patient is also determined in the initial consultation.

How to look after the skin after chemical peel treatment?

The results to be achieved and the recovery time associated with chemical peeling depends upon the type of chemical peel being used. It is usually longer for deep strength peels. Post-treatment instructions given by dermatologists for chemical peel treated skin are as follows:

  • The peel merely has to be wiped off with warm water after being left to dry for 4-6 hours. In the following two days, the treated area must only be washed twice a day with warm water, and moisturiser and sunscreen must be applied as often as necessary. The patient can use a mild cleaner after two days. After 10 days of treatment or once the chemical peeling has totally faded, regular skincare routines can be resumed.
  • Do not pick or pull the treated skin as it can delay the natural skin healing process and may lead to an infection.
  • Use gentle skin products and do not use makeup for at least 24 hours.
  • Avoid doing exercises that cause sweating and even saunas, hot baths, and jacuzzi until the skin is healed.
  • Drink plenty of water to keep the skin hydrated.
