Reverse Sun Damage with Chemical Peels
Spending too much time in the sun can put you at risk for sunburn. It also makes you susceptible to skin issues such as hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and fine lines. However, you can reverse sun damage with chemical peels. Chemical peels utilize a chemical solution to slough away the upper layer of sun damaged skin, in order to improve skin texture and tone.
There are different types of chemical peels, ranging from superficial to deep peels. The type of peel chosen for your skin problem will depend on the severity of the condition being treated. Milder peels can correct early signs of aging and light acne, while deeper peels are better suited to pigmentation issues, and deeper lines and wrinkles.
Here are some of the chemical peels often used by physicians to reverse sun damage:
- The Perfect Peel is among the most effective chemical peels for skin repair. It boasts glutathione as a component, and this antioxidant gives the Perfect Peel superior power. Not only does it address photodamage, pigmentation, and similar issues, but the glutathione works to protect the skin cells from further damage.
- The Cosmelan Peel is used to treat hyperpigmentation, because it blocks the production of melanin. This makes it very effective in treating melasma. It involves the application of a mask in-office, which is left to take effect for up to 12 hours. The Cosmelan Peel is suitable for all skin types, and can be used on the face and body.
- The Jessner/TCA Peel utilizes trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and phenol to strip away the outer layer of the skin, to reveal younger looking skin. This peel is recommended for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and to correct photodamage.
