Chemical peels have gained astonishing popularity in the last few years. Every year more than one million people choose to get a peel on their skin. Chemical peels are the most sought-after derma procedures as they treat fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, pore size, acne, pigmentation, and more.
A chemical peel is a powerful acidic solution that is applied to the face, neck, and hands to exfoliate the dry dull skin and expose the underneath younger-looking skin. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea. If you have sensitive skin or a history of skin infection, you need to first review your skin tone and thickness before opting for a chemical peel. Even if your skin is suitable for accepting a chemical peel, it's not that one peel is an all-size fit. You need to choose the acid wisely.
Like every good thing comes with a bad thing, chemical peels do have certain adverse effects. A chemical peel can cause various side effects like redness, swabbing, swelling, scarring, changes in skin color, infections, or even organ damage in certain severe cases. A chemical peel is not for everyone, you need to consult a dermatologist before getting your skin peeled if you are on any oral medicine (like isotretinoin), have a history of keloids, are pregnant, or have a frequent outbreak of cold sores.
If you have any of the above concerns, you must look for a safer alternative to the chemical peels. Preferably a milder way to exfoliate the dead skin layers to rejuvenate the facial skin.
To make the peeling process mild, safe, and easy, FCL has introduced the concept of peeling pads, which is a home care product to fulfill the exfoliant needs of the skin. FCL Penta peel pads are specifically designed for patients who need to address dyschromia, uneven skin tone, pigmentation, and dullness.
FCL Penta peel pads come soaked in a solution of different peeling acids like mandelic acid, phytic acid, lactic acid, multifruit AHAs, salicylic acid, and hyaluronic acid. They are mild enough to suit all skin types and give the benefits of a chemical peel with utmost safety. It simply involves sweeping the face with a single pad and waiting for 10-20 minutes. It should be used twice a week to get the maximum depigmenting benefits.
If you are already undergoing chemical peeling or any other derma procedure like lasers, microdermabrasion, or dermabrasion, you can use the peels safely to enhance the treatment outcomes. The diverse selection of acids makes these pads compatible as maintenance treatment with almost all types of peels and helps to improve most of the skin concerns like:
