The Science Behind Chemical Peels
During a Chemical Peel, a specially formulated solution is applied to the skin. This solution, typically consisting of acids like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), or trichloroacetic acid (TCA), works by breaking down the bonds between skin cells, promoting exfoliation and peeling.
The depth of the peel is determined by the type and concentration of the solution used. Superficial peels target the outer layer of skin, addressing mild skin issues, while deeper peels penetrate further, targeting more severe concerns.
