Skin Peeling

The process of removing dead skin by using acids and enzymes is known as skin peeling. The effect of skin peeling is to leave behind fresh and young skin when dead skin is removed. Among the several skin peeling techniques chemical peel and CO2 laser peel are two popular treatments. Chemical peel involves the use of mild acids or strong acids or phenols depending upon the nature of skin to be treated. CO2 laser peel involves the use of CO2 laser that is scattered with high frequency on the surface of the damaged skin to get at the tissues residing at greater depths in the skin. Skin peeling is useful when treating rough skin, fine lines, wrinkles and discolored skin.

With aging, the fine lines, wrinkles, dry skin and dark spots are likely to occur. The texture of the skin also changes and becomes irregular. Skin peeling is a treatment that invigorates your skin. The treatment removes upper damaged skin cells and exposes finely-textured skin. The treatment is achieved in two ways: Chemical Peel and CO2 laser peel. 

In the chemical peel treatment, chemicals are applied to the skin using cotton swabs and brush. The treatment removes damaged skin cells which reduces sun damage, uneven pigmentation, and wrinkles. Another kind of peeling is CO2 laser peeling. Under this, the laser beam is passed to the dermal level of the skin. The skin becomes hot and this leads to an acceleration in the growth cells that produce elastin and collagen. It softens the skin and lightens it.
