There are a wide range of chemical peels available today, each treating different skin issues. They usually fall into three strength categories: superficial (light), medium, and deep, based on the amount of active chemicals in the formula used.
Those that would like to reduce the visibility of scars, fine lines, or light sun damage can benefit from a light peel, while those who have normal wrinkles, moderate damage from UV exposure such as benign growths, and hyperpigmentation generally try medium peels. Deep peels are generally reserved for the most pronounced skin damage from sun exposure, deep wrinkles, and pigmentation issues.
In all chemical peels, the solution applied produces a controlled damage to the skin, which eventually peels off so that skin can regenerate in its place. Awazen Medical Center offers specialty skin peeling treatments like a Whitening Peel to brighten the skin, a Pimple-Free Peel to reduce blemishes, a Rejuvenating Peel for a more youthful look, a Melasma Peel to reduce pigmentation, and a VI Peel for more radiant-looking skin.
