One of the oldest cosmetic procedures, Chemical Peel has been used from the times of Cleopatra who famously used lactic acid to maintain an ageless skin. The name CHEMICAL PEEL is a misnomer as neither chemicals are used nor it peels the skin but it causes a controlled inflammation to regenerate the skin.

Although a lot of innovation has taken place in lasers and technologies still chemical peels are irreplaceable in certain skin conditions. They are known to be safer than most of the procedures and best complement the laser and other light based procedures. Depending on which combination of acid your dermatologist recommends, it benefits the skin, scalp, body and face.

The procedure helps in treating:

  • Wrinkles
  • skin discoloration
  • Acne
  • Age spots
  • Rough-feeling skin
  • Fine lines (especially the ones’ under our eyes and around the mouth)
  • Freckles
  • Dull complexion
  • Melasma
  • Sun-damaged skin and
  • Scars

They are cost effective and efficacious in skilled hands. The objective is to exfoliate the specific layers of skin leading to spontaneous elimination of dead skin and subsequent regeneration of new skin. They can even be used for therapeutic purposes. The depth of lesion defines the type of chemical peel and the results expected.

How does it work?

  1. First, your skin doctor will clean your skin thoroughly so as to clear any elements be it dirt, makeup or oil which might create a barrier between acid and skin.
  2. A chemical gel/fluid is applied on the skin’s surface which dissolves the outer dead layer of the skin, letting the new skin take its place and build its collagen
  3. Post this, the skin is again cleansed or neutralised.

How to choose the right peel for your skin?

It is very important you consult an expert for a chemical peel. A dermatologist suggests which chemical peel is right for you based on your skin type.

Does it include any downtime?

Depending on the chemical peel use – some do not require much down time and you can go home post the treatment. While the others involve a recovery time of two to three weeks.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 90 minutes.

Precautions after the procedure

In case of any discomfort post skin peel, you can use ice packs at home. We suggest staying out of the sun for the following days and avoiding makeup (or as directed by the dermatologist) based on the peel and duration. We also recommend to not go for another treatment during the same time or scratch your face after this procedure.

Ageing of the periorbital region is a common concern across age groups and more so in the middle age group. Eye rejuvenation has gained traction over the years. It reduces under-eye bags and plumps up the skin around the eyes to make it look more youthful and fresh.

The skin around eyes is delicate and thin and does not have sufficient oil glands to keep it moist. Eyes undergo wear and tear due to allergies, sleep loss, sun exposure, and aging. Hence, the number of eye rejuvenation procedures are increasing every year.

Surgical Procedures

The surgery restructures the eyelids by removing or moving excess tissue (skin, fat), strengthens tendons and muscles, and restores peripheral vision. Considerable number of patients undergo blepharoplasty. It requires pre-operative assessment of eye anatomy, ophthalmologic examination, and checking of eye related disease history.

Advantages Of Blepharoplasty:

Other Techniques:

  1. Micro-Needling: It thickens the skin to remove wrinkles around the eyes. Additionally, it is safe to use near to the eye.
  2. Camouflage With Makeup: The illuminating concealers make hollowed areas under the eyes look fuller.

Under Eye Rejuvenation Procedures

Chemical Peel

Rejuvenation of the upper and lower eyelids using chemical peels is a simple and quick non surgical procedure. It is sometimes also referred to as ‘chemical blepharoplasty’.

When peeling the eye area, practitioners need to consider a type of peel that is safe and will create a lifting effect.

Chemical peels can treat wrinkles and fine lines, keratoses, sagging eyelids and dyschromia successfully in expert hands.

Post Procedure Precautions:

After chemical peel the patient should exercise caution while sleeping and should not sleep with the treated skin pressing against any surface as it may result in infection and prolonged erythema or other complications.
Follow up is needed on the first, third and sixth day following the peel to monitor progress and to rule out infection.

Uncommon Complications:

Eyelid oedema can appear immediately after the procedure and usually peaks on the second day of the procedure. The oedema should be investigated and any infection setting in should be ruled out.
Apart from this, erythema which is the redness of the treated area can appear. Strict sun protection is a must after any chemical peel procedure.

Liquid Eyelift

Non-surgical eye rejuvenation procedures include use of fillers, liquid eyelift. The fillers give more refreshed and less tired-appearing eyes. The fillers in combination with anti-wrinkle injection is used to lift the eyebrows and reduce wrinkles in the crow’s feet and the lower eyelid region.
The hyaluronic fillers are more commonly used. It is administered along the hollow of tear troughs by cannula. The local anaesthetic is used for numbing to reduce discomfort. The procedure time is very short around 30 minutes and gives instant effect.
The liquid eyelift is also a filler used to fill the hollowing under the eyes. This is more demanding procedure as it gives more rested and youthful look that lasts longer than 1 year. However, the procedure requires significant technical knowledge, experience and understanding of the normal anatomy of the region around the eye.

Fat Transfer

This technique is required when volume loss is more substantial and also includes cheeks and upper face. The procedure gives youthful contour and shape to the face with dramatically natural appearance. The major advantage of the procedure is that it gives permanent effect.
