Aging Skin Care – Does Chemical Peeling Slow Aging?

Aging skin care

In skincare, doctors use chemical peeling as a procedure to remove sun-damaged, pigmented, and wrinkled skin by peeling it with chemicals. As the old skin peels off, new skin appears that is much fresher looking. But chemical peeling does not slow the aging process or prevent it.

What is done is to remove old damaged skin with a fresh looking new skin. After that it is up to you to take better care of your skin to keep it younger for more time by protecting it from sun. The process itself does not affect the internal aging of the skin. If you expose your new skin to the sun again, you will get damaged as you got damaged before.


Skincare with chemical peeling and skin damages:


Chemical peeling will remove mild skin wrinkles; sun damaged spots, and pigmentation. It also will remove the leathery appearance of the skin. A chemical peel will help remove some pre-cancerous spots and facial scars. Mild chemical peeling is used to treat acne in some cases.

Can chemical peeling cause damage:


In rare cases, chemical peeling procedures can damage with infection and scarring. You must talk to your doctor about this. No procedure that changes the body in any way is free from risk. AHA formulations are used to give light peel, TCA is used to give a medium depth peel and phenol is used to give deep peel to the skin. You can visualize the process like this- the deeper your skin problem, the deeper peel may be used. So for surface aberrations, a mild peel and for deeper scars a deep peel. Your doctor will decide that after looking at your skin and consulting with you about what results you desire, the time you want to give, and the care and discomfort you are ready to undergo. Deep peels give more discomfort but produce better results. You will have to discuss these issues with your doctor.
