A chemical peel treatment, otherwise called chemexfoliation or derma peeling, utilises a chemical compound such as glycolic acid, lactic acid, trichloroacetic acid, carbolic acid, salicylic acid chemical peels for working on the layers of your skin deep down. These chemical solutions have their own skin healing properties such as reducing hyperpigmentation, acne scars, wrinkles, etc,. In this treatment, either one or a combination of solutions are applied to your skin, which may cause a slight irritation on the layers of your skin. The layers of your skin ultimately strip off, uncovering more younger and brighter looking skin while the new skin is typically smoother with less wrinkles and fine lines, has an all the better tone and is more splendid in terms of complexion after a couple of months.

A chemical peel is the most sought-after skin-resurfacing method these days. Based upon the issues you're tending to with the system, your doctor will pick a chemical peel in one of three profundities:

  • Superficial chemical peel: A superficial (light) chemical peel eliminates the external layer of skin which is known as epidermis. It's used to treat fine wrinkles, skin breakouts, uneven complexion and dryness. 
  • Medium chemical peel: A medium chemical peel eliminates skin cells from the epidermis and from segments of the upper piece of your centre layer of skin called the dermis. It's used to treat deep wrinkles, skin inflammation scars that are tough to go away and lopsided complexion. 
  • Deep chemical peel: A deep chemical peel eliminates skin cells considerably deeper. Your doctor could suggest one for more profound wrinkles, scars or non-cancerous developments that are found deep under the skin.

Treatments

The treatment of chemical peels are utilised to treat specific skin conditions or to work on your appearance by working on the tone and surface of your skin. They can either reduce or improve the following; 

  • Fine wrinkles and lines that appear under your eyes or around your mouth brought about by sun harm, ageing and genetic factors
  • Particular types of skin inflammation or acne
  • Mild scarring caused by acne
  • Spots caused due to sun, age or liver,  freckles lopsided skin colour
  • Non-cancerous layered spots called actinic keratosis.
  • Bumpy or rough skin, flaky patches, dull skin tone.
  • Dark skin patches called melasma because of pregnancy or consuming birth control pills.

However, it should be noted that saggy skin, swelling, profound scars, fine facial lines and extreme wrinkles don't react well to chemical peels. Your doctor can assist you with deciding the best treatment for your interests other than chemical peels for acne scars.
