Luminosa Medical Spa in Phoenix, Arizona
A chemical peel involves the application of a solution to the face or specific areas to remove the skin’s top, most damaged layers, allowing newer, healthier skin to emerge. Chemical peels come in a range of strengths, from a deeper phenol peel to more superficial peels like a glycolic acid peel. Several light to medium-depth peels can often achieve similar results to one deeper peel treatment, with less risk and shorter recovery time.
Peel solutions may contain alpha hydroxy acids, tricholoracetic acid (TCA), or phenol. Peel “depth,” or the number of skin layers removed, is determined by both solution ingredients and concentration.
Types of chemical peels at Luminosa
- TCA skin peels use trichloroacetic acid and can be applied to the face, neck, hands, and other exposed body areas. It has less bleaching effect than phenol peels, and is good for “spot” peeling of specific areas. It can be used for deep, medium, or light peeling, depending on the concentration and method of application.
- A phenol peel is a deep chemical peel. Phenol is a full-face treatment used when sun damage or wrinkling is severe. It can also be used to treat limited areas of the face, such as deep wrinkles around the mouth, but it may permanently bleach the skin, leaving a line of demarcation between the treated and untreated areas that must be covered with makeup.
- Lactic acid lotions like Lac-Hydrin can help treat keratosis pilaris, caused by a buildup of keratin, and lighten brown spots at the same time.
