Categories of Facial Peels

 Categories of Facial Peels

Facial peels are divided into three main categories;

1. Superficial/light facial peel; this facial peel consists of the application of mild chemical acids to treat problems such as pigmentary changes, fine wrinkling, sun damaged/photo-aged skin or mild scarring. Often used is a low concentration of glycolic or salicylic acid - or another member of this acid group.

Light facial skin peeling is generally safe, effective, and inexpensive. It produces excellent results and enjoys wide patient acceptance. There are usually no significant complications.

2. Medium depth facial peel; this peel comprises of acids such as trichloracetic acid (TCA,) and is commonly used for photoaged skin, warts, and wrinkles. moreover, TCA peels can also remove tattoos over time. Naturally, medium peels will produce improved results over superficial or light peels, but don't expose you to the increased risk of complications associated with deeper peels.

3, Deep facial peel; this chemical skin peeling is usually performed with the more aggressive and toxic chemical such as phenol. Deep chemical peels are used for more severe abnormalities of the skin. They're much more extensive in their procedure and require thorough patient screening and evaluation, as well as intensive training on the part of the physician performing it.




    There's much in the world that you can't explain.
    It's revealed for you to remember
    by the whispering voice of a distant train
    or a midnight rain in november.

    Horizon within! You can always find
    the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
    one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
    is Nature naught but extension.

    Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
    by fear and longing you roam
    that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
    ...on your random journey back home.
