CHEMICAL (TCA) SKIN PEELING FOR HYPERPIGMENTATION
When the skin produces extra melanin to protect itself from ultraviolet rays, age spots (also known as liver spots) may begin to form. While harmless, these small grey, brown or black spots often appear on the arms, face and hands, and are more common among adults over 50 years of age. The spots can be different in shape and size. It ca be clusters, streaks or single spots on the skin.
However, it is not uncommon for younger individuals to have them as well – especially those who lead an active lifestyle and are exposed more to the sun. Hyperpigmentation can happen in three different ways which sun damage or sun spots, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation and melasma. All three types of pigmentation are caused by three different factors.
The risk factors that lead hyperpigmentation include:
- Over sun exposure
- Acne prone skin
- Hormonal imbalances
- Old age
- Certain medications
- Sensitive skin that lead to skin trauma cause by allergic reactions
CHEMICAL PEEL FOR AGE SPOTS
Working on the uppermost layer of skin, the skin peel treatment triggers the natural peeling of skin to reveal a healthy layer underneath. Utilising a trichloroacetic acid (TCA) solution, dead skin cells are eliminated while the growth of new skin cells is stimulated.
This process helps to lighten the skin on areas affected by age spots, and several treatments may be necessary for this treatment to be a complete success. Nonetheless, you should be able to notice improvements following each treatment.
The chemical peel will remoVe the unwanted damaged skin that is pigmented. Suitable for patients of all ages, the applied solution causes skin to peel off naturally- thereby removing dead skin cells and leaving you with a fresh, smoother and healthier layer of skin.
Besides the standard TCA solution, other milder or stronger solutions may be recommended by your doctor depending on your skin’s condition, so be sure to discuss available options prior to undergoing this treatment.
ARE THEY ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
During application, you will experience a mild sensation as the treatment begins to take effect on the skin. As this occurs, cool will be blown over your face by a machine to help reduce the stinging. This will be followed by the application of cold compresses once the treatments is completed, ensuring that you experiences as little discomfort as possible.
Chemical peel can cause your skin more sensitive toward sun’s ray. Thus, proper cares are recommended by applying sunscreen or any other UV protection regularly.
