This procedure of removal of top dead skin layers is also known as derma peel. Also, suitable acne treatment for men, this can be done even during their break hours. It involves the use of chemical agents that cause controlled destruction of the outer-skin layers, epidermis, and dermis.
Depending on your skin type, the chemical effects the entire epidermal layer (superficial grade)or dermal layer (medium or deep grade). At Berkowits, we use various chemicals such as glycolic, salicylic, lactate, and phenol among others to perform this procedure.
Glycolic peel, a medium grade treatment, is the best acne treatment for dry skin as it promotes the production of new collagen and elastin. Lactic peel, however, is a superficial grade treatment, which is a suitable acne treatment for sensitive skin as well as dry skin.
You must take precautions by not undergoing another abrasive procedure for at least one week after the treatment. During this phase, you must always apply our Berkowits Protect Sunscreen Gel when going out in the sun.
