Skin peeling is an age-old, scientifically proven, safe method of skin rejuvenation. Skin Peeling is a medical procedure, which consists of the application of certain products, after cleansing and degreasing the face.
Peels are carefully chosen for your skin type and concerns. Peels can be used to treat various skin problems with different application methods.
Chemical peeling is useful in Melasma, (dark circles), Skin Discoloration like Pigmentation due to Sun exposure (photo), Pregnancy, Birth control pills, Drug reaction, Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation, Superficial scars as a result of Acne, Freckles and Lentigines, Fine wrinkles, Dilated pores.
Chemical peels can:
- Improve depressed pits
- Improve deep wrinkles
- Gently polish the skin surface

With Chemical Peels, a solution of one or more exfoliating agents is applied on the face to remove the rough upper layer of skin and to stimulate rejuvenation of new skin cells. The result: tighter, smoother skin that is relatively free of lines and blemishes.
Peel is applied over the treatment area (face/neck/back etc) with the help of a brush or bud in a specific pattern. With every sitting, the time of application of peel and concentration of peel is increased.
The aim of a peel is to remove the upper dead layer of the skin and unclogging the clogged pores, thereby giving smooth, fresh, rejuvenated, young-looking flawless skin. Peelings which are done for cosmetic purpose are superficial in nature. Deeper peels are done to remove the deeper layers of skin (epidermis and/or upper dermis) and are utilized in deep-seated pigmentation, acne scars, and Anti-Aging purposes. Peels are extremely safe, if done under the supervision of a trained dermatologist, and are US FDA (Food & Drug Administration) Approved. There are various types of peels:
To name a few, different agents used for skin peeling are:
Glycolic Peel (20%, 35%, 50%, and 70%): Which is a synthetic sugar cane product? Glycolic is classified under alpha hydroxy acid (AHA)
Glycolic is derived from sugar cane with excellent anti-aging properties. Rich in vitamins, minerals, vegetable hormones, and sugar with an important capacity for collagen creation stimulation, encourages skin cell regeneration. In the cell renewal process, Glycolic Peels favor the elimination of toxins from the skin helping to oxygenate and energize.
Salicylic Peel (20%, 30%): This is a Beta Hydroxy peel that is very superficial in nature. It peels off the upper dead layer of the skin and opens up the clogged pores and thus helps in the reduction of acne/pimples. It also helps in minimizing the oiliness in the skin which is very common in acne patients. It is a highly recommended peel for Acne /pimples of any grade and gives extremely good results in just 2 to 4 sittings
Tri Chloro Acetic (TCA) peel:
It commonly used for pigmentation: Can be used in many concentrations, but it is most commonly used for medium-depth peeling. Fine surface wrinkles, superficial blemishes, and pigment problems are commonly treated with TCA. The results of TCA peel are usually less dramatic than and not as long-lasting as those of a phenol peel. In fact, more than one TCA peel may be needed to achieve the desired result. The recovery from a TCA peel is usually shorter than with a phenol peel.
This acid from sour milk or yogurt has high hydration power. The secrets of this recipe date back to the days of Cleopatra. This non-irritating peel treats small wrinkles and skin photoaging. It also stimulates new collagen and elastin fiber formation. The Lactic Peel reduces solar damage; dryness improves texture, skin tone/aspect, and general activation collagen and elastin. Lactic acid whitening properties help achieve a more uniform skin tone giving back lost luminosity reducing small blemishes of melanic origin.
