A Detailed Guide on Chemical Peel Treatment at-home

Chemical Peel Treatment at-home

Acne, sun exposure and ageing leave our skin with uneven texture, wrinkles, and dark spots. To make it look and feel smooth and young, people are now opting for chemical peel treatments. This treatment was traditionally provided at the dermatologist’s clinic but now brands are up with products that offer you the same benefits and strength of a chemical peeling done at a dermatologist’s office. Chemical peeling helps exfoliate the top layer of our skin that gets damaged due to sun exposure and damage caused by environmental factors.

In this blog, we will discuss chemical peeling in detail so you can make a better decision about the treatment.

Can we use chemical peeling on neck?

Chemical peeling, also known as derma peeling, is the least invasive way to improve skin’s appearance. Though these peels are usually used on the face, they can also be used on the neck and hands. 

How do chemical peel treatments work?

In chemical peeling treatment, the outer layer of the skin is removed to reveal the soft, flawless skin below it. It helps stimulate collagen production in the skin’s dermal layer. The depth of the peel procedure depends on the chemical used, the length of time the chemical is allowed to remain on the skin, and how vigorously the solution is applied.

Chemical peel for acne

Oily skin is characterized by large pores, acne breakouts and stubborn dark spots post-inflammation. The best chemical peel for acne is the one that is infused with Salicylic Acids because salicylic acid penetrates through oil and pore lining to clear all blockages and prevent skin from breaking out.

Chemical peel for combination skin

Combination skin is characterized by pores and excessive oil production in the T-zone area i.e., forehead and nose. For combination skin, chemical peel with lactic, salicylic and glycolic acid would provide the best benefit because salicylic acid will clear out the pores and address breakouts; lactic and glycolic acid will work on the surface to exfoliate dead cells.

Chemical peeling for sensitive skin

People with sensitive skin experience redness and sensitivity. Lactic acid chemical peeling is ideal for this skin type because it is gentle on the skin.

Chemical peel for normal skin

Normal skin behaves differently in different seasons. In summers, it produces oil, mainly in the T-zone and in winters, it can feel dry and tight. For this skin type, chemical peel with mandelic, glycolic and lactic acid is the best.

Chemical peel aftercare

For at least the next 24 hours, do not use any skincare products with active ingredients like Retinol, Vitamin C, Glycolic Acid, or Salicylic Acid in your skincare. Follow a light and simple skincare routine. Try incorporating hyaluronic acid because it helps hydrate the skin, and research has shown that it plays an important role in wound healing. Lastly, but not least, make sure you wear sunscreen and protect your skin from the sun immediately following your peel. Your skin will be very sensitive.
