Chemical peels have been around for centuries. A chemical peel is a nonsurgical procedure which exfoliates (takes off) the Stratum Corneum (the top layer of skin) with mild, medium or deep reaching chemicals.
Once removed, the layer of skin below replaces the removed layer with skin that is usually smoother, clearer and tighter. Mild and medium peels can be administered by an aesthetician. Deep chemical peels can only be performed by a board certified dermatologist, physician or plastic surgeon and members of members of dermatology associations About 413,000 women and 31,000 men have chemical peels to clear up their skin.
Below are the different types of chemical peels. In all cases, the face is washed and then the solution is applied with a smooth and consistent layer, then removed after a predetermined time or appearance. The treatment is approved by the American Dermatological Association . Chemical peels in Fremont are performed under a variety of treatments and goals.
Alpha hydroxy acid peels
Alpha hydroxy acid (AHAs) are naturally occurring carboxylic acid found in sugar cane juice and lactic acid, found in sour milk and tomato juice. This is the mildest of the peel formulas and produces light peels for treatment of fine wrinkles, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne.
Beta hydroxy acid peels
Beta hydroxy acid peels can go deeper into the pores than AHA peels. Studies show that BHA peels control sebum excretion, which further helps relieve persistent acne from reappearing. Chemical peels in Fremont can achieve fantastic results.
Retinoic acid peel
Retinoic peel is a facial peel that is also performed in the office of a plastic surgeon, or a dermatologist. This is a deeper peel than the BHA or AHA peels and is used to remove scars as well as wrinkles and pigmentation problems. The client leaves with the chemical peel solution on their face. The peeling process takes place on the third day. More dramatic changes to the skin require multiple peels over time.
Croton oil / Phenol peel
Formerly known as a phenol peel is a deep chemical peel, which deeply resurfaces the skin by removing the Stratum Corneum (top layer) and eventually results in regeneration of the dermal architecture, effectively restoring younger dermis in a way that cannot be replicated by other, more superficial peels. It is performed under the care of a physician and sometimes requires general anesthesia or sedation. Consult with your dermatologist or plastic surgeon for the best plan for your individual situation.
