What a chemical can do…

Chemical peel as a part of facial? sounds scary but in fact, it treats many skin conditions at the same time offers many cosmetic benefits too. Exfoliation or peeling of a dead layer of skin is a basic part of a skincare routine. It facilitates nourishment to root cells of the skin. Today, a couple of methods for skin peeling are available, the two most common are physical peel and chemical peel.

Physical peel

Many physical scrub agents are available in the market. Physical peeling removes the outer layer of skin by friction and we feel the freshness. The physical peel can do more harm than good. As it acts on very superficially. its use provides limited benefits.

Chemical peel

We always recommend chemical peeling. Unlike physical exfoliants, products containing acids or enzymes require no scrubbing which makes it a better choice for those with problem skin, whether it’s prone to acne, eczema, dryness, or even sensitivity. This is why chemical exfoliants can be milder and gentler than physical scrubs. Chemical peels are generally performed on the head or neck region. In expert hands, Deeper chemical peels offer more dramatic results.

Mechanism 
A chemical peel also called dermapeeling or chemexfoliation, uses a chemical compound to improve the health and look of your skin. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to your skin for a few seconds, which causes trauma or injury to your skin’s layers. The skin outer layers eventually peel off revealing a more youthful appearance.
A skincare expert can regulate the activity of peeling medicine in terms of application time and concentration. Many advance medical-grade peeling solutions are available in various strengths. You can use some of them regularly at home. Of course, the guidance of a skincare expert is always important for optimal results. Your doctor can do chemical peels for acne scars, wrinkles, and discolored skin. They can be done alone or combined with other medical procedures.

Commonly used chemical peels are
Glycolic acid is the most popular chemical peel and is used to treat acne scars. It can smooth out the skin’s surface to reduce the appearance of atrophic scarring, while also suppressing melanin production to brighten skin and reduce hyperpigmentation. Some peels act on the superficial layer while others are on deeper layers. Your skincare expert uses the peel accordingly for maximum results.

Common indications of chemical peel are

  •  Fine lines under your eyes or around your mouth and wrinkling caused by sun damage or aging
  •  Certain types of acne.
  •  Dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills
  • Mild and moderate scarring.

  •  Rough skin, scaly patches, dull complexion.

 

Insta glow peel

The peels used for “party peel” purposes are usually a little different, that is, the agent used is different from the routine peels for pimples, pigmentation, and wrinkles. They are faster acting and pretty safe. They have low downtime with minimal or no evident redness or scaling of skin after the procedure. Some of the routinely used chemical peels are Glycolic Acid, Retinoic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Lactic Acid, and Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA).

Is laser hair removal safe?

Laser hair removal is popular with people looking for a permanent hair removal solution than other methods. Using lasers to remove hair works by inactivating hair follicles from growing new hair. Before starting treatment, however, you should be aware of some of the negative effects of this treatment, as well as other myths surrounding the procedure. This method is largely a safe way to remove hair from unwanted areas permanently or for a long time.

Side effects

Laser hair removal is generally safe. A few side effects may occur after the procedure. Most side effects are minor and temporary. Anyone with chronic side effects should report it to their dermatologist.

Post-procedure issues

Redness & Bumps may be there. Immediately after your treatment, redness & bumps at the treatment area are common; these may last up to a few hours. You can use a cold compress if the sensitivity persists. Darker pigmented skin may have more discomfort than lighter skin & may continue longer. Cleanse the area treated gently. Wash the area gently with mild soap. Dead hairs will begin to shed 5-30 days after your treatment. You can do exfoliation to speed up hair shedding. Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of dark or light spots for 4 weeks. Use a sunscreen (spf 50 or higher) at all times throughout the treatment period & for 1-2 months following. Do not /wax or thread the area. On average, most clients experience a level of hairless happiness after 7-9 sessions, Yes, it’s life-changing!

Skin discoloration

Some people may notice small changes in the color of their skin. It may be slightly darker or lighter, following the procedure. People with fair skin may be more likely to experience a darker complexion. People with darker skin may be more prone to light skin changes. These changes usually disappear in some time, and the skin returns to normal.

Eye injuries

The hair removal procedure involves the use of lasers. This means that there is a risk of serious damage to a sensitive organ like the eyes, especially if the doctor is working on a person’s face. Both the person receiving the treatment and the doctor should wear eye protection to help prevent injuries during the procedure.

What are the risks of laser hair removal?

Most people who use it find that laser hair removal is safe and well-tolerated treatment. There do not appear to be any long-term health risks associated with the procedure. However, you may have minor side effects after the treatment. People should ask their dermatologist to check how a small piece of skin reacts to treatment before treating a large area of skin. People who wish for laser hair removal treatment should always visit a fully trained doctor.

Is laser hair removal painful?

Within a few days after treatment, the affected skin may become red and tender. During the procedure, some people describe the feeling as piercing pins, heavily marked over the bright bones. The procedure itself, however, is usually painless.

Does it work?

Laser hair treatment works, but it is not always possible to achieve permanent hair removal. However, laser treatment can greatly reduce hair growth. After initial treatment, most people will only be hairless for a few months. Hair will eventually grow back, though it usually gets better, lighter, and less likely to look better than earlier.

Most people will need multiple sessions to find a permanent or satisfactory solution for unwanted hair. Hair may grow thinner and thinner with each passing session. After adequate treatment, it may stop growing and return completely. This treatment is also effective on dark hair. People with white, red, or gray hair may not notice the slightest change, as laser beams are attracted to dark hair and often do not work on light hair.

Some myths about laser hair removal

Laser hair removal causes cancer

This concept is totally baseless. Lasers are specially designed to penetrate skin cells and target only deep hair roots within the skin. Lasers used to remove hair produce a small amount of radiation. However, this radiation is not dangerous, and there is no evidence that it can cause skin cancer.

Laser hair removal causes infertility

The myth that laser hair removal causes infertility is not supported by any study. Lasers only penetrate the skin and do not reach or touch any other organ. This treatment is often safe, even in sensitive areas such as the groin.

Home remedies are like seeing a doctor

Home machines are available for people who want to remove unwanted hair without going to a dermatologist. Most people can get milder results by using these kits, such as light or thin hair. However, home remedies are not the same as the powerful medical devices used by doctors.

When to see a doctor

Anyone experiencing side effects to laser hair removal should consider seeing their doctor. They can usually control symptoms such as redness and swelling at home, but they should always report symptoms of skin infection to a doctor or dermatologist. Early reporting of symptoms allows for immediate treatment and can help prevent any permanent changes.

Anyone who is trying to conceive should consult a doctor before this treatment. The doctor may advise other methods, as laser usually requires many times not to be done during pregnancy.

Take home message

Laser hair removal is safe and effective for most people when done by a qualified doctor or dermatologist. It can take multiple sessions to remove unwanted hair completely, and permanent hair removal is not always guaranteed. The number of sessions also depends on pre-existing hormonal issues, if any. Some people may experience minor side effects after treatment, such as redness, swelling, and irritability, and can usually treat this at home. Anyone who sees signs of skin infection should see a doctor.
