Chemical peels are one of the most popular skin care services in Singapore. This customizable service can take years off your appearance and completely rejuvenate your skin.
The basic concept of a chemical peel is simple. By “peeling off” or removing superficial layers of skin, a chemical peel can promote healthy skin production. As new collagen forms, the skin appears vibrant and refreshed. Here’s a more in-depth look at what chemical peels can really do for your skin.
Types of Chemical Peels
If you have rough skin, acne scarring, pigmentation spots, or enlarged pores, a chemical peel may help improve your skin tone and color. Depending on the condition of your skin and your desired look, there are three basic types of chemical peels.
Superficial Peels: Light or superficial peels are the mildest type. Superficial peels use diluted acids such as glycolic acid to gently slough off dead skin cells from the epidermis, or top layer of skin.
Medium Peels: Medium facial peels penetrate more deeply than superficial peels. This type of peel uses trichloroacetic acid to break down the epidermal barrier which allows for better penetration to the papillary dermis. Medium peels trigger an inflammatory response which causes active peeling during the first few days after treatment.
Deep Peels: The most powerful type of facial peel is the deep resurfacing peel. This type of chemical peel uses phenol to penetrate several layers. While uncomfortable, a deep peel can take years of damage off your face. However, due to its intensity, you should only undergo a deep peel once in a lifetime.
