This is the 3rd in the series of EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CHEMICAL PEELS
It is important to realize that a chemical peel is the willful application of an ACID to produce a controlled injury to the skin. By intentionally causing “damage”, you prompt the body to 1) make more collagen and elastin which form the support system to the epidermis for plumper looking skin and 2) causing the outermost layers of the epidermis to slough off, revealing newer, fresher skin.
*” FROSTING” the skin turns powdery white
*SWELLING, inflammation, redness or sensitivity
*GRADUAL darkening of the skin in the area treated(that skin will shed)
*Scabbing, crusting, oozsing, or flaking
NOT all solutions produce results in the same way. For example, AHA’s are much less likely to give visible skin shedding while TCA generally causes significant sheding, especially at high percentages.
