Based on various studies conducted, chemical peels are effective in dealing with wrinkles, sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, aging skin and age spots. But for best results, it is highly recommended that the procedure be handled by licensed skin care personnel just like what Indulgence Medical Day Spa does. All our chemical peels are also duly supervised by our own licensed health providers.
As of the present, the most commonly used chemical peel techniques are the Superficial peel, Medium peel and Deep peel. The Superficial peel uses the Alpha-hydroxy acid as the exfoliating agent applied on the outer layer of the skin. This method is used to refresh the skin on the face, neck and hands. The Medium peel, on the other hand, uses trichloroacetic or Glycolic acid. The agent is applied to penetrate the outer and middle layer of the skin. This is used to remove dead skin cells and improve freckles, fine lines, wrinkles and a lot more. Finally, the Deep peel uses phenol or trichloroacetic acid to penetrate the deeper part of the skin’s middle layer to remove dead skin cells. The method is intended to remove shallow scars, age spots and freckles.
