Chemical Peel Treatment

Chemical peel is a procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers.

It can be applied on face neck hands and body. It will improve the appearance or feel of the skin. During this procedure, chemical solutions will be applied to the area being treated, which causes the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off and rejuvenate the skin.

There are two types of peeling:

  1. Only peeling like trichloroacetic peel (TCA) to be combined with the skin lightening or bleaching creams to improve pigmentation.
  2. Retinol peels or yellow peel combined with various whitening ingredients in it (which usually not disclosed) where it is used as a mask followed by home care products that are to be continued at home. It is commercially available as Dermamelan, Amelan, Meladeep Melanopeel etc.

Meso therapy is a treatment that uses injections of whitening ingredients like vitamin C, glutathione, etc. into your skin to rejuvenate and lighten the skin tone. It is done by injecting with needles or combined with micro-needling treatment .


Micro needling is a cosmetic procedure which involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles with devices known as Derma rollers or Dermapens. Dermapen treatments are highly effective for treating unwanted pigmentation.

The treatment is for all skin shades, but is a particularly advantageous solution for dark skin tones, where laser treatments may not be the safest option due to further pigmentation risks.


CO2 laser therapy treats pigmentation by destroying the outer layers of the skin and stimulating re-epithelialization and cell turnover in the deeper layers. This removes pigmentation and restructures collagen to both improve dark spots. It is not so safe for darker skin tones as it can lead to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation if you do not protect yourself from sun exposure after the treatment.


Q-switched Nd:YAG laser is one of the most common lasers which removes excess pigments.

The laser beams in nanosecond pulses break down excess pigmentation, which is slowly removed by your body’s immune system.

It is used to treat:

  • Freckles
  • Sunspots
  • Melasma


Invariably all treatments have to be followed by strict avoidance of sun exposure after a procedure.
