Peels act by dissolving the proteins that bind the skin cells together, which result in the skin being shed off. This allows the body to swiftly produce new cells. Overall the effect is rejuvenated fresher skin.
Peels can be broadly classified by their Depth of penetration (Superficial, Medium, Deep) and/or Composition (Eg. AHA: alpha hydroxy acid; BHA: beta hydroxy acid; AKA: alpha-keto acid; TCA: trichloroacetic acid).
The choice of the peel depends on specific indications of the patients. Some of the commonly targeted problems are Pigmentation (Melasma, Freckles, Tan removal), Acne, Rosacea, Anti-aging, Rejuvenation and Scar treatment.
