Chemical Peel treatments abroad
A chemical peel is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure which involves treating skin with a chemical solution that causes dead skin to peel away from the body, improving the texture of the skin. Removing the outer layers of skin stimulates new tissue growth, and the regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled. Chemical peels are most often used on the face. This procedure may be used to improve acne and acne scarring, age and liver spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles, irregular skin pigmentation, rough skin, scars, and sun damage.
Chemical peels will not treat deep lines or tighten skin; for these corrections a face lift may be necessary. There are various formulas for the chemicals used in peels, and peels can be light, medium, or deep. The doctor can adjust the formula for the individual needs and goals of the patient. For the deepest peels, a local anesthetic or mild sedative may be used to manage discomfort. Patients with dark complexions, certain infections of the skin, very pale skin tone, or have used certain acne treatments within the last year may not be candidates for a chemical peel.
For these patients, laser skin resurfacing may be a better option. Patients should always consult with a doctor to determine if a procedure is a good option for them. Chemical peels usually have minimal risk, but for people with certain skin types there is a risk of changes in skin tone and scarring. Patients should inform their doctor if they are on any hormone medications or have a history of keloid scarring. Chemical peels may also reactivate cold sores. After a chemical peel, the doctor will likely advise you to use sunscreen and avoid sun exposure for up to a few months after the procedure to protect the new layers of skin. There is likely to be redness and some discomfort for several days to a few months.
For lighter peels patients can return to normal activities within a few days, but with deeper peels two weeks of recovery are necessary. For deeper peels, medicated bandages may be in place for a few days afterward while the skin heals.

A chemical peel is the use of a combination of acids to remove the top layers of the skin. Over the course of a few days, the skin begins to peel and the skin which grows back is smoother and younger looking. There are different types of chemical peels which vary depending on the skin type. Mild chemical peels apply alpha hydroxy acids (AHA'S) such as glycoloic acid and can help to remove fine wrinkles. Medium chemical peels use beta hydroxy acid (BHA) such as salicylic acid or trichloroacetic acid, as this penetrates the skin deeper.
For the most deep chemical peel, phenol is usually used and this can cause a change in the pigmentation of the skin, making it lighter.

The doctor may test a small patch of skin first, before applying the chemical to the whole face. In the weeks before the procedure, the doctor may advise to cleanse the face twice each day.
The face is prepared by applying a barrier around the eyes, nose and mouth. Once protected, the whole face is then treated with a pretreatment solution.,
Depending on the depth of the peel, different combinations of acids will be applied to the face. All peels, however, involve the application of acid to remove the top layers of skin.
If a deeper treatment is needed, once the pain has receded, the clinician will proceed to remove further layers of skin with another chemical acid. Anesthesia For a light chemical peel no painkiller is required.
For a deeper chemical peel, patients may be recommended painkillers, sedation, or a local anesthetic.
Procedure duration The Chemical Peel takes 30 to 120 minutes. The skin is cleaned and the top layers of the skin are removed using acid.,
Post procedure care Depending on the type of peel, some patients may need to take painkillers in the first couple of days after the procedure. Patients should take more care than usual after treatment, with washing and should use suncream. Possible discomfort Following treatment, some discomfort, controlled by painkillers is normal for deep peels.,

Chemical peels are associated with several side-effects, such as redness, scarring, hyper- or hypopigmentation, and infection. Deep chemical peels which use carbolic acid (phenol) can damage the heart, kidneys, and liver.
How painful the procedure is depending on how deep the chemical peel goes. For lighter chemical peels, there may be minor burning and stinging sensations. For medium or deeper chemical peels your doctor will likely use pain relief or sedation to keep you comfortable.
Chemical peels can be an effective and permanent solution for acne scarring, although it may require more than one treatment.
How often chemical peels may be used depends on the kind of peel and the condition being treated. Lighter chemical peels can be performed approximately every 4 weeks. For the treatment of certain conditions, your doctor may prescribe a protocol that involves a series of chemical peel treatments spaced out over several months in combination with other treatments. More aggressive chemical peel treatments may be performed only once or twice per year.
Chemical peels may be performed by a dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or other doctor with training in the technique. Lighter chemical peels may also be performed by a beautician or licensed cosmetologist with specialized training.,
