What is a Superficial Chemical Peel?
The skin's outer layer is removed by a gentle (superficial) chemical peel (epidermis). It is used to treat dryness, uneven skin tone, fine wrinkles, and acne. Every two to five weeks, you can receive a mild peeling.

How does it Work?
How does it
Acids are used in a superficial chemical peel to intentionally and carefully damage a certain depth of skin. The skin cells peel off as a result of the acid rupturing the chemical links that hold them together. Any remaining epidermis is removed during superficial peels.
The goal is to deeply exfoliate the skin, which stimulates the formation of new epidermal tissue, collagen, and more uniformly dispersed melanin. The surface texture and look of the new skin are improved.
Lactic acid, glycolic acid, tartaric acid, and salicylic acid are among the acids frequently used for superficial peels. These are referred to as the fruit acid peels, with the exception of salicylic acid (often used to treat acne).
Face peeling typically takes 20 to 25 minutes and is performed in-office. Another benefit is that there is no requirement for general anesthesia.To keep the patient as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure, the practitioner initially uses local anesthetics to numb the area. The problem region is then treated with a chemical solution using gauze. Note that tingling may happen while receiving therapy.
The kind of peel you choose will have a big impact on this. Patients can typically go back to work after receiving a superficial facial in a few hours. However, recovery after deep peels may take a little longer for certain people.You may see redness, scabbing, and bruising on your skin for the first several days. However, it’s crucial to remember that each patient has a different level of sensitivity to and occurrence of adverse effects. Patients with extremely sensitive skin, for instance, experience more severe side effects.

Peels can generally be divided into two main categories:
As their name implies, deep peels completely enter the dermis and significantly improve the texture of the skin.
To improve skin suppleness, focus on the epidermis and some areas of the dermis.
The purpose of superficial peels is to exfoliate the skin gently by using moderate acids. They merely pierce the epidermis, the top layer of the skin.
