Chemical Peeling is a very popular cosmetic procedure that has been used in the treatment of many skin conditions. It is done by applying a chemical solution onto the surface of the skin, usually on the face and other problem areas like the neck or arms. The chemicals are usually made up of hydroquinone, trichloroacetic acid or tretinoin. These chemicals will exfoliate the skin which removes old skin cells and increases the production of new skin cells from the underneath of the layers. This can be very helpful for people whose skin is prone to wrinkles, pigmentation problems and aging spots.
This is a very simple and non-invasive procedure that can produce excellent results. However, there is one major side effect of this procedure. Since it is a chemical, it may cause some side effects, but they are not too serious and will subside after several weeks. In most cases, you can resume your normal activities soon after the microdermabrasion. If there is an allergic reaction or inflammation, it is probably from the chemical peel and can be easily treated with OTC products like Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil.
The main disadvantage of using chemical peel or microdermabrasion for hyperpigmentation is that it is very time consuming. It can take up to one hour in some cases, but this depends on how well-trained the professional is. Another disadvantage is that it is used only on problem areas like the face and can cause redness around the area. Many people have found it to be effective, but it is still considered a time-consuming and inconvenient option. For most people, these procedures are performed in their offices or at home so this may be a setback.
There are also home treatments available to improve the appearance of the skin. Home microdermabrasion is becoming popular with people who are self-conscious about their appearance and want to improve their complexion. Applying a facial mask made of natural ingredients like honey, egg whites, or fruits like oranges can help to exfoliate and brighten skin. Some people prefer to use masks made from ingredients like sugar, cream, or clay to help moisturize dry skin.
These home products can be as effective as professional treatments. However, if you use the wrong products, it could actually damage your skin. It is important to use the right products with the right pH and concentration. Too much or too little can cause dryness and irritation. You should also keep your face out of direct sunlight to prevent sunburn.
Before undergoing a chemical peel or microdermabrasion for hyperpigmentation, it is important to discuss the treatment with a dermatologist. They can provide you with the right advice on what products to use and how often. They can also make recommendations about side effects to avoid. The procedure can take up to half an hour, depending on the severity of your skin discoloration. Afterward, you will need to apply an acne sunscreen, lotion, or moisturizer.
