Chemical Peel Strength: Medium Depth Chemical Peel
A medium chemical peel can act on deeper layers of the skin. They can safely remove discoloration from sun damage and lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over a course of a few treatments. They create a controlled damage to the skin which, much like the superficial chemical peels, stimulates the production of collagen and new skin cells to thicken the skin. These peels come accompanied by more skin flaking because of its deeper working in the skin, but this is normal.
Acne scarring and active acne can be treated effectively by a course of medium peels. Because they work beyond the superficial layer, they can address some of the complexities of these skin conditions more effectively than a superficial peel could.
It’s important that you take care of your skin post-peel, because otherwise you will not achieve your best results and may aggravate your skin. Protection from the sun is vital, because your new and fresh skin will be sensitive.
It’s also important that you don’t try any at-home skin peels without talking to a dermatologist first. There is no such thing as a quick fix because it takes time and patience to change the make-up and habits of your skin. At-home peels could be dangerous when not performed right – you could experience anything from skin irritation to permanent skin discolouration.
