How Chemical Skin Peels work

Posted on

When you take some facial treatment your face look quite radiant and vibrant but that lasts for few hours or days. A chemical skin peel treatment can help you retain that glow and radiance for longer. The word ‘chemical peel’ may seem to be frightening but that is not the substance which burns and aggressively peels your skin. Chemical peels actually refer to a broad category of chemical treatments that are used for exfoliation and rejuvenation of skin. In fact many of the peel do not even peel off the skin. Lighter chemical skin peels help in making skin smoother, brighter, reduce the size of enlarged pores and potent skin rejuvenating ingredients penetrates deeper into the skin for more effectiveness.

Stronger chemical skin peels such as TCA peels and Jessner’s peel, acts by activating the wound healing response of the skin. They work by dissolving upper skin layer. As the upper skin tissue is removed, it creates wound on the skin leading to the stimulation of the healing response of the body which cause the formation of new skin tissues. The strength and depth of chemical skin peels can vary according to the skin issues, type of skin, strength of chemicals used and the duration for which the peel is applied on the skin.
