We have different kinds of chemical peel tailored for different skin conditions and problems.
AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid), BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid), TCA peel and combination peels are types of chemical peels used in our skin centre.
AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid): AHAs are water-soluble acids made from sugary fruits. They help peel away the surface of your skin so that new, more evenly pigmented skin cells may generate and take their place. AHAs are known for their ability to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, improve skin texture and tone, and help with sun-damaged skin.
BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid): BHA is oil-soluble, allowing it to penetrate deeper into the pores of the skin. It’s commonly used to treat acne and sun damage. BHA exfoliates the skin and is known for its ability to reduce the appearance of large pores and blackheads.
Combination Peel: A combination peel involves using both AHA and BHA acids. This combination allows for a more comprehensive treatment, targeting a variety of skin issues. The AHA works on the surface level to improve texture and tone, while BHA goes deeper to clear pores and reduce blemishes.
TCA Peel: TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) peel is a type of chemical peel used in skin resurfacing. It’s considered a medium to deep peel, depending on the concentration of the acid used, and offers more dramatic results than milder peels like those using Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) or Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs). TCA peels can vary in strength, with concentrations typically ranging from 15% to 30%. Lower concentrations result in a medium-depth peel, while higher concentrations provide a deeper peel.
A combination peel can include a variety of active ingredients in addition to AHAs and BHAs, each targeting different skin concerns. These can include:
PHA (Polyhydroxy Acids): PHAs are similar to AHAs but are less irritating and more suitable for sensitive skin. They gently exfoliate the skin’s surface without penetrating too deeply.
Retinoids: Retinoids, such as retinol, can be included for their anti-aging and skin renewing properties. They can improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Resorcinol: This ingredient is often used in combination with other acids for deeper skin peels. Resorcinol helps to break down hard, rough skin, making it particularly effective for treating severe acne, deep scars, and hyperpigmentation. It enhances the penetration and effectiveness of other ingredients and promotes skin peeling, leading to rejuvenated and smoother skin. However, resorcinol can be quite strong, so it’s typically used in professional settings under careful supervision.
Phytic Acid: Phytic Acid is a milder acid known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s effective in skin lightening and hyperpigmentation treatments. Phytic acid can help in gently exfoliating the skin, making it a good option for sensitive skin types. It’s often used to brighten the skin and even out skin tone, and it can also provide some protection against sun damage.
Vitamin C: Known for its brightening properties, Vitamin C can be added to help with hyperpigmentation and provide antioxidant protection.
Kojic Acid: This ingredient is often used for its skin lightening properties, especially in treating hyperpigmentation and age spots.
