Chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure. Depending on the issues to be addressed with the procedure, Dr Sohana chooses a chemical peel in one of three depths:
Light chemical peel. A light (superficial) chemical peel removes the outer layer of skin (epidermis). It’s used to treat fine wrinkles, acne, uneven skin tone and dryness. You might have a light peel every two to five weeks.
Medium chemical peel. A medium chemical peel removes skin cells from the epidermis and from portions of the upper part of your middle layer of skin (dermis). It’s used to treat wrinkles, acne scars and uneven skin tone. You might need to repeat the procedure to achieve or maintain the desired result.
Deep chemical peel. A deep chemical peel removes skin cells even deeper. Your doctor might recommend one for deeper wrinkles, scars or precancerous growths. You won’t need repeat procedures to get the full effect.
Specialized acne control peel is given that helps in clearing the acne (papule and pustule) by removing the upper dead skin layer and unveiling rejuvenated skin from beneath.

– What Are The Causes Of Dark Circles?
There are commonly two types of dark circles:
The goal of treatment is to flatten, soften, or shrink the keloid. Keloids can be hard to get rid of. Sometimes they return after treatment. Many doctors will use a combination of treatments for the best results. Treatments include the following:
Corticosteroid shots. The medicine in these shots helps shrink the scar.
Freezing the scar. Called cryotherapy, this can be used to reduce the hardness and size of the keloid. It works best on small keloids.
Wearing silicone sheets or gel over the scar. This can help flatten the keloid.
Laser therapy. This can help flatten the keloid. It also can fade the color.
Surgical removal. This involves cutting out the keloid. Most keloids will return after this treatment.
Pressure treatment. After keloid surgery, keeping pressure on the area reduces blood flow. This can help keep a keloid from returning.
Different treatments work for different people. Talk to Dr. Sohana about which treatment option is right for you.
