Types of Peeling and Their Results:

The three types of chemical peels that exist are superficial, medium and deep. In each one of them, a progressive exfoliation of the layers of the skin is made. Going by order, the first would treat the most visible area of the face, while the other two would have a greater incidence in the dermis.

The superficial peel is a type of chemical peel treatment that can be done weekly, but up to six times in a row, since then it would touch a long period of rest to regenerate the dermis again. With a marked periodicity, this treatment consists of eliminating small wrinkles, very light and little extended spots or flaccidity.

Its effectiveness does not begin to be noticed until one or two weeks after the first treatment, depending on the type of skin and the imperfections that each person has. This is a system that can be repeated more times because it is not so harmful to the skin by removing only the
outermost layer. Even so, the protection with sunscreen should be done daily throughout the year, so that it does not affect since it remains a kind of regenerated skin more delicate and less protected with this type of repeated processes.
