Understanding the Different Levels of Chemical Peels

Sun exposure, pollutants, acne, scarring, and the aging process can take its toll on your skin. Skin damage makes us appear older than our real age. Fortunately, revealing your healthy-looking and smoother skin can be done through chemical peels in Granbury. The procedure comes in three levels. Here at Lakecrest Cosmetic Surgery Center, we will help you determine the level that is best for you depending on several factors.

Mild Peels

Mild peels such as those that use glycolic acid are ideal for a lot of skin types and provide the patient with smoother and brighter skin. Of all three levels, side effects are least likely with mild treatments. The procedure removes the top layer of the skin and several treatments may be needed to achieve your desired results.

Medium Peels

The trichloroacetic acid peel is a medium peel and goes deeper than mild peels. It can reduce the appearance of minor wrinkles, something that mild peels cannot do. However, there is an increased chance of negative side effects with medium peels. It also makes you more sensitive to the sun. These peels are very popular since they can be used on different skin types by blending concentrations. Those who have darker skin can see the best outcomes with this kind of peel.

Deep peels

Deep peels are also known as phenol peels. They are not ideal for everyone. The procedure can take off several skin layers. It also offers dramatic results. Then again, there is a risk that the patient will have permanent bleaching. Thus it is usually recommended to fair-skinned individuals only.
