Process of exfoliating the skin using acids derived from sugarcane like glycolic acid and Tri chloro acetic acid
They peel off the superficial layer of skin unveiling a fairer, firmer more younger looking skin.
A controlled peeling treatment
Since the days of ancient Egypt, people have been using chemo exfoliation methods, also known as chemical peeling, to rejuvenate skin. The original chemo exfoliant was lactic acid, an active ingredient of sour milk that was used topically by the nobles and in the Middle Ages, old wine with tartaric acid as its active ingredient was used for the same purpose
Alphahydroxy acids (AHA’s) / Betahydroxy acids (BHA’s):
Also called as Light Peels which include Glycolic, Lactic and other Fruit acid peels (AHA) or Salicylic Acid (BHA). These peels are often repeated to achieve the desired results. The application of AHA peels are relatively fast and simple.
These peels are generally performed on an OPD basis.
No sedation or anesthesia is required.
The treatment usually takes about 10 to 15 minutes but this would depend on the strength of the solution or the contact time and skin type.
Common AHA’s being used:
TCA produces a chemical necrosis of the skin to variable depths, depending on strength of the acid, this results in the peeling of the skin
History is taken to determine the amount of sun-induced damage, history of hypertrophic scarring or keloid formation, and a general medical history. Items of interest include a history of prior surgeries, dermabrasion, or recent laser therapy. In addition, medicines, such as isotretinoin, need to have been stopped for at least 1 month prior to chemical peeling.
The skin should be cleaned and excess fat removed with agents like acetone, alcohol or a combination of these agents. Three parts alcohol with 1 part acetone works well. A thorough Defatting of the skin is necessary for proper penetration of the peeling agent since most agents are not lipid soluble.
The acid should be applied with a brush, cotton, or sponge applicator. The acid should not form pools in the facial folds nor drip from the face. The more acid that the clinician applies, the deeper the peel.
This is the time that the Peeling solution should remain in contact with the skin.
Neutralization of the chemical peeling agent is an important step once the clinician has achieved the proper depth of the peel, which is determined either by the frost or how much time has elapsed. Neutralization can be achieved by cold water or wet, cool towels applied to the face following the frost. This soothes the sharp tingling discomfort caused by the peeling agent. Other neutralizing agents that can be used include bicarbonate spray or soapless cleanser. Some chemical peels, such as salicylic acid and trichloroacetic acid, do not require a neutralization step since the skin neutralizes the acid. Glycolic acid peels must be neutralized. Always wash the patient's face with water following the peel.
Application of sunscreen is mandatory. Chemical peeling without application of sunscreen is big blunder. It is better to ask the patient, if he/she is used to applying a sunscreen. In Indian setup any sunscreen above spf 15 is good enough.
It is advised to take a detailed consent from the client before starting the peel. The consent should explain the nature and the procedure along with the rare complications.
Better patient compliance
Adverse effects minimal
