Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles, discolored skin and scars — usually on the face. They can be done alone or combined with other cosmetic procedures. And they can be done at different depths, from light to deep. Deeper chemical peels offer more-dramatic results but also take longer to recover from.

The chemical peel is a popular form of skin peel treatment that makes use of medical grade chemical solutions to remove the old layer of damaged skin to reveal a healthier layer of skin beneath.

Chemical peels are generally used to treat the skin on the face, below the eyes, neck, underarms, back, and sometimes, hands.  There are also full body peels.

We, at The Bombay Skin Clinic, take immense pride in being one of the leaders in chemical peel treatment for many different skin conditions. Let us take you through some important information on understanding the concept of chemical peel and chemical peel benefits.

Types of chemical peels

  1. Glycolic peel – A glycolic peel provides amazing exfoliation. It is also sometimes known as a fruit peel. This peel is usually used to treat skin conditions such as mild scarring , wrinkles, and fine lines and also blackheads white heads and uneven skin texture. It is a medium depth peel. At The Bombay Skin Clinic, we also use this peel to effectively treat skin discoloration in our patients. The glycolic acid peel used in our clinic ranges from 25% to 35% to 70% .What’s more is that the peels used are liposomal and gel-based. So they are very safe to use with very little side effects or downtime.
  2. Salicylic acid peel – A salicylic skin peel is one that is usually of a superficial depth and has a gentle exfoliating action. As these peels are relatively gentle, they can be used on patients whose skin is not suitable for other types of peels. Post-treatment, our patients do notice visible glow, shrunken pores, and improved skin texture. The best chemical peel for acne, a salicylic peel is especially effective on inflammatory acne and blackheads.
  3. Lactic acid peel – Derived from milk, lactic acid peels fight wrinkles and pigmentation. They come in light (superficial), medium, and deep variants. While a lot of lactic acid peels can be bought over the counter, it is best to opt for a professional lactic acid peel. At The Bombay Skin Clinic, our patients have benefitted from reduced pore size and brighter skin with the use of lactic acid peel. We do not recommend this peel to patients who have eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis. We also recommend this peel to patients who are seeking a quick and safe party peel for an instant glow.
  4. Mandelic acid peel – A mandelic acid skin peel is very similar to glycolic and lactic acid skin peels. The perfect choice for anyone undergoing chemical peel treatment for the first time, a mandelic acid peel has antibacterial properties that make it a great remedy for acne-prone skin. A mandelic peel can also be used to treat fine lines and sun damage. We recommend this peel for its gentle properties that heal without damaging your skin. At our clinic, our patients have benefitted from this skin peel for active acne and acne mark treatments as it helps tackle inflammation and pigmentation.
  5. Cosmelan Peel – Cosmelan is an advanced skin peel treatment effective for pigmentation that has failed to resolve after the topical application of traditional skin lightening products.
  6. TCA peel – The trichloroacetic acid peel is a peel of medium depth. It is commonly used to treat skin conditions such as acne scars and melasma. A TCA chemical peel works by getting rid of dead skin cells and stimulating the growth of new, healthier cells. A TCA peel can be used on the face and the body safely. At our clinic, we use the TCA peel for amazing results while treating back and shoulder acne and acne marks. There is peeling present for around seven to eight days but the skin reveals itself to be brighter than ever.
  7. Azelaic acid peel – Azelaic acid has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties that make it the ideal chemical peel for acne. It is known to suit all skin types. In particular, azelaic acid is known to improve cell turnover, which is the best way to limit scarring left behind by severe acne. Its anti-inflammatory properties also make it the ideal treatment for rosacea. At the clinic, our patients love this leave-on peel that can be left on the skin for around four to six hours for the best results.
  8. Pyruvic acid peel  – This is the best choice of peel for anti-aging treatment. It is also used as a chemical peel for acne. Our patients have experienced amazing results that include reduced fine lines and hyperpigmentation on being treated with a pyruvic acid peel.
  9. Yellow peel (retinal) – This is one of the most-effective skin peels when it comes to anti-aging treatment. Through the effects of the yellow peel, our patients have seen significant results in the treatment of wrinkles, acne, fine lines, and melasma. This peel works to remove discolorations and also encourage oxygen circulation to the skin. At the clinic, this peel is combined with microneedling treatment to promote a deeper penetration of the peel. This helps stimulate collagen and reduce scar tissue for acne scars and stretch marks.
  10. Black peel – Based on ingredients including black vinegarsalicylic acid, and jasmonic acid, a black peel is known to successfully tackle a host of skin problems including acne, acne scars, aging, and pigmentation. This peel is one of our preferred choices for patients with oily skin and active acne.
  11. Kojic acid peel – Kojic acid peel is widely known for its skin brightening ability. We recommend this peel for any individual with sensitive skin. A kojic acid peel is the perfect line of treatment for skin problems such as sun damage, scars, and signs of aging. It also has antifungal properties. This peel is especially recommended for peri orbital pigmentation, dark circles, and puffiness around the eye.
  12. Argilac peel – This skin peel is noted for its suitability to sensitive skin. Argilac peel can successfully tackle a variety of skin conditions such as spots, redness, and mild to moderate acne with fabulous results.
  13. Ferulac peel – The ferulac skin peel is a truly revolutionary product that works to reduce photoaging while evening out the skin tone. An antioxidant, this peel helps fight the effects of free radicals on your skin while protecting it from UVA and UVB radiation.

A chemical peel is solution applied to the face to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of new cells.

The aim is to improve the appearance of the skin – for example, by reducing age spots and evening out skin tone.

There are 3 types of peels, called superficial, medium and deep.

Superficial and medium peels are usually safe, as long as they’re done correctly. These type of peels are not permanent and they need to be repeated.

Deeper peels are more risky. They’re longer-lasting and do not usually need to be repeated.
