How Do Chemical Peels Speed Up Skin Regeneration? – Cutera Aesthetics

How Do Chemical Peels Speed Up Skin Regeneration?

The wheel of time takes its toll on the skin and becomes the root cause of different skin problems, such as scars, marks, pigmentation, dark spots, uneven tone, dull skin texture, etc. Multiple skin treatments and procedures have become popular in the aesthetic market, and among these is the worth-mentioning name of chemical peels. Chemical peels follow the mechanism of peel-off masks and can help with skin regeneration and rejuvenation. But, instead of peeling off dirt and debris from the skin surface, the chemical solution peels off the outer defected layer and resurfaces our skin.

This procedure is a highly effective way of eliminating skin concerns and ensuring good skin health and well-being. Chemical peels have gained immense popularity as an anti-aging treatment as this procedure can fade away fine lines, wrinkles, and other mild aging marks. Uncovering youthful, more transparent, smoother, firmer, and brighter skin, chemical peels have us all sorted with their phenomenal results.

Chemical Peels: Effectiveness in Renewing Skin and Different Types

Chemical peel or derma-peeling is a process in which chemical solutions are used to imp[rove skin texture and appearance. The chemical peel causes a skin resurfacing reflex and removes any imperfections on the skin surface or rooted deep within. This skin treatment can treat various issues, including aging signs under your eyes, around the mouth, neck, or hands. Some other skin concerns are:

  • Mild scarring
  • Sunspots, age spots, liver spots, freckles, uneven skin coloring
  • Rough skin, scaly patches, dull complexion
  • Dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills
  • Skin damage because of constant sun exposure

Chemical peels treat certain skin conditions or improve your appearance by improving the tone and texture of your skin in a less invasive way. Chemical peels are of various types treating different skin concerns and issues. These peels are usually categorized into light chemical peels, medium chemical peels, and deep chemical peels. On the basis of your skin texture and concerns, your dermatologist will determine which type of chemical peel can help your skin in the best possible way.

Light chemical peel

A light chemical peel, or superficial peel, will penetrate less with the skin and lightly exfoliate your skin. It only removes the epidermis, your topmost skin layer, and does not cause any injury or damage to the remaining skin layers. The results are mild, with minimal temporary side effects that subside within a few hours. Some of the benefits of light chemical peel are:

  • fine wrinkles
  • uneven skin tone
  • acne
  • dry skin

This chemical uses mild chemical agents, so it is usually safe to get light chemical peels every 2 to 5 weeks without worrying about severe side effects or skin scarring.

Medium chemical peel.

A medium chemical peel is one step more intense than a light chemical peel and promises better results as well. It removes your epidermis and penetrates your dermis layer, which lies beneath the epidermis. The result is a more in-depth resurfacing.

Concerns that are treatable with medium chemical peels:

  • Wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Acne scars

You may need several treatments to treat the deeply rooted skin concerns with more than six weeks gap.

Deep chemical peel

A deep chemical peel removes your epidermis and the upper and middle layer of your dermis. It uses powerful chemicals, and you may need a local anesthetic before the procedure. This will help prevent pain and discomfort.

  • A deep chemical peel can address the following skin problems:
  • Deeper wrinkles (dynamic wrinkles)
  • Deeper scars
  • Darker skin patches

Since this chemical peel penetrates the skin to the deepest layer, the results are also long-term, i.e., ten years, and you do not need a follow-up treatment during this period.

As its name implies, a chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that involves a chemical solution. Cosmetic practitioners apply this chemical solution to the skin. This makes the skin blister and gradually peel off. As a result, the skin becomes smoother and less wrinkled. Depending on your doctor’s advice, chemical peels can be done on your face, hands, or neck. In general, chemical peels improve the feel and appearance of your skin. During the treatment, a chemical solution exfoliates the skin. This removes the skin’s top layers.

Then, the skin grows back. The new skin becomes smoother. Depending on the intensity of the chemical peel, you might need to go through the treatment again to achieve your goals. Since chemical peels reveal new skin, you have to take care of your skin afterward. Remember, new skin is sensitive to the sun. Thus, you must stay away from the sun until your skin recovers. Cutera Aesthetics can help and assist you in your skin rejuvenation journey with the help of chemical peels.
