Chemical Peels for Anti-Ageing: A Guide

hyperpigmentation causes

As you grow older, your once supple and radiant skin turns dull and uneven and starts showing signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles. Though skin ageing is inevitable, you can reduce these signs of ageing and breathe back life into your skin through a chemical peel treatment.

Want to reduce wrinkles, sun damage and fine lines from your face and get clear and glowing skin? Read along as we tell you how a chemical peel treatment by makeO skinnsi will help you combat your skin’s ageing and give you beautiful skin that you are happy about.

How do chemical peels help ageing skin?

A chemical peel removes the outermost layer of your skin and leaves you with a fresh layer of skin that is free from blemishes, acne scars, dark spots and pimples. A chemical peel is a safe and non-surgical skin treatment that allows you to reduce signs of ageing without much pain or discomfort.

Ingredients commonly found in anti-ageing chemical peels

Your chemical peel includes the same ingredients that you find in anti-ageing lotions, serums and other skin care products. The most common ingredients that go in your anti-ageing chemical peels are:

Glycolic acid

Glycolic acid is known for accelerating your collagen production which in turn gives you radiant and youthful skin. Glycolic acid also removes dead skin cells and seals in moisture in your skin and makes your skin look well-hydrated and flawless.

Salicylic acid

Salicylic acid is known in the skincare world for its excellent exfoliating properties. It helps to remove dead skin cells and to get rid of acne scars and blemishes. Not just that, it also helps to prevent acne breakouts and pimples.

Lactic acid

Lactic acid is another popular ingredient that is used in light chemical peels for ageing skin which gently exfoliates your skin and makes your skin look visibly bright and rejuvenated. People who have sensitive skin can benefit from this ingredient in a chemical peel as it doesn't cause skin inflammation during or after the chemical peel session.

Other than these, trichloroacetic acid, mandelic acid, retinoic acid, resorcinol and hydroquinone are other key ingredients that are used in chemical peels.

How to prepare for an anti-ageing chemical peel treatment?

Make sure that you discuss the potential risks and your medical history before you go for your chemical peel sessions. Besides that, here are a few expert tips to prepare for an anti-ageing chemical peel treatment.

  • Discuss your expectations with your dermatologists.
  • Let your dermatologist know about your history of scarring.
  • Stop taking medication that can affect your blood clotting like Aspirin, Vitamin E, ibuprofen, etc at least 10 days before your chemical peel session.
  • Avoid medications like Retin-A, Renova or glycolic acid before your chemical peel as a safety measure.

What can you expect after an anti-ageing chemical peel?

Here is what you must expect after you get an anti-ageing chemical peel for wrinkles.

  • You might experience temporary and mild side effects like redness, swelling, skin irritation and blisters. Note that these symptoms will fade away in a week and if they don’t then we recommend you see your dermatologist immediately.
  • You will have to wear bandages on your treated areas for several days after the chemical peel treatment.
  • Your dermatologist will recommend you avoid or limit sun exposure as your skin will be highly sensitive to the sun post treatment.

What age is best for getting a chemical peel?

Dermatologists across the world believe that your late 20s and early 30s happen to be the best time to consider going for a chemical peel.

Can you see any result after one session of a chemical peel?

Yes, most people will notice a significant improvement in their skin’s texture and tone after a single session of chemical peel.

How long does the result of a light chemical peel last?

The result of a light chemical peel typically lasts for about a month or two, depending on your skin’s condition and where you get it done.
