Depending on the depth of the peel, chemical peels can have a range of strengths. From deep, strong peels to superficial and light peels. The chemical solution used can vary from one to another as well. Here are some types of chemical peels:
-Alpha-Hydroxy Acid Peels: This type of peel is one of the most superficials. While a single treatment can give you fresher, healthier appearance, repeated treatments can improve skin’s textures. This peel doesn’t need any anesthetic nos sedation and you can go back to your daily routine after the procedure.
-TAC Peel: This peel is mostly used to treat wrinkles, pigmentation, and blemishes. It has less bleaching effects than the peels that contain phenol, which makes it better for spot peeling.
-Deep Phenol Peel: This peel contains phenol, sometimes called carbolic acid. It can treat both fine and deep wrinkles, hyper pigmentation, blotchiness, as well as severely sun-damaged skin. Unlike other peels, this one can’t be applied to your neck.
