AKJ Skin and Laser Centre’s Chemical Peeling Treatment

Also known as Dermapeeling or Chemexfoliation, Chemical Peeling uses chemical solutions to peel away the damaged top layer of skin to reveal more youthful skin underneath. The process also instils the growth of healthy skin cells and improves the tone, texture, and complexion of the skin. In short, Chemical Peeling rejuvenates the appearance of the skin, freeing it from wrinkles, scars, and discolouration.

At AKJ Skin & Laser Centre, we specialise in Chemical Peeling treatment under the exprtise of Dr.Selvam and Dr. Nirmala, who have over 20 years of experience in Dermatology.

Chemical Peeling has become immensely popular in recent years because it can remove dead skin cells and bring back blemish-free, healthy skin growth.

The treatment has several benefits:
  • It is almost painless and completely risk-free.
  • It improves the clarity, tone, and texture of the skin.
  • It effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles, scars and acne marks.
  • It stimulates the growth of new skin cells and collagen.

Chemical Peeling Procedure at AKJ Skin and Laser Centre

Different types of acids are used in chemical peels that penetrate at varying depths into the skin. At AKJ, we use eco-friendly chemicals that are safe for all skin types. Depending on your skin's sensitivity and needs, your doctor will choose the chemical that best suits your skin.

The process begins with cleansing your skin using an oil-removing agent to make your face free of oily residues. Next, your skin is treated with any of these chemical solutions:

  • Glycolic acid
  • Lactic acid
  • Salicylic acid
  • Trichloroacetic acid
  • Carbolic acid

Your doctor will choose the chemical peel based on your skin type and the condition for which it needs to be treated.

Each type of chemical penetrates to a different skin depth and peels away to reveal a new layer. For example, a superficial chemical peel will only act on the Epidermis or the outer layer of the skin. These light peels are used to rectify acne, wrinkles, dryness and uneven skin tones. Medium chemical peels remove skin cells from the Epidermis and dermis or the upper middle layer of skin. Deeper peels penetrate deeper into the skin and are ideally used to treat hard-set wrinkles, scars, and precancerous growths.

At AKJ, you will be treated with specific chemicals to remove your unwanted skin cells and improve the appearance of your skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of chemical peels are available, and how many will I need?

There are three different types of chemical peels:

  • Superficial peels:
    The skin's outermost layer can be penetrated using mild acids.
  • Medium peels:
    Treats the outer and middle layers of the skin with glycolic acid.
  • Deep chemical peels:
    Use trichloroacetic acid or phenol to remove damaged skin cells from the skin’s middle layer.

Your dermatologist will decide on the chemical peel that suits your skin type, sensitivity, and issue. Most chemical peel treatments require three to six sessions. Our experts can provide more information about the number of sessions you need.

Is chemical peeling safe for all skin types?

Although chemical peeling is safe for all skin types, the treatment requires time for recovery from side effects like skin sensitivity, peeling, and redness. Chemical peeling will also cause hyperpigmentation on the treated site. Kindly speak to your dermatologist for other options to avoid the risk of hyperpigmentation.

For whom is Chemical Peeling most suited?

Generally, chemical peeling is ideal for dark and light-skinned people. However, the results depend on the type of problem being treated. We do not recommend this treatment for those with:

  • Abnormal skin scarring
  • Abnormally coloured scars
  • Sensitive skin due to certain conditions or medication intake
  • Lifestyle that requires them to stay outdoors during the healing period.

In addition, chemical peels are most effective at treating sagging skin and wrinkles. Other deeper penetrating problems may require a different type of treatment.

Should I worry about the side effects of Chemical Peeling?

When done by experienced dermatologists, chemical peeling is safe. The treatment will, however, cause some temporary side effects like:

  • Mild flaking
  • Acne breakouts
  • Dryness
  • Redness
  • Scarring
  • Sun sensitivity
  • Inflammation

Our dermatologists will prescribe post-care guidelines to handle these temporary issues.

What is the duration of Chemical Peeling?

There is no tailored duration for chemical peeling treatment. Some treatments take between 20 to 45 minutes with little downtime. Other therapies may extend to a week or ten days. During this recovery period, you may feel a tingling sensation on your skin, which is quite normal. It is advisable to use sunscreen to protect your skin at this point. As soon as the procedure is completed, your skin will glow with freshness.

How soon does Chemical Peeling give results, and how long do they last?
Your skin shows visible improvement within a week after treatment. Depending on how fast your skin heals, you can see the results in a couple of months. Generally, Chemical Peeling lasts three to five years, although deeper penetrating peels last longer than lighter peels. All in all, the longevity of the results depend on how well you care of your skin post-treatment.
