A Comparison Between Chemical Peels And A Topical Cream

Hello visitor! Thank you for taking the time to read this article.

Embarrassing and ugly, acne scars on your face can be a real confidence barrier. Several options exist for getting rid of them, and the prices range from 0 creams to ,000 surgeries.
Here you will read about a comparison between two very different ways to reduce acne scars; the chemical peel and snail serum cream. Although some differences are obvious it is still worth comparing them to see the effects of both.
Two Different Approaches to Acne Scars Treatment
The Chemical Peel
The chemical peel is a body treatment technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin using a chemical solution that causes the skin to blister and eventually peel off. The regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Thus the term chemical peel is derived. It is recommended for light acne scarring.
There are two popular types of chemical peels, alpha hydroxy and phenol. Alpha hydroxy acids are naturally occurring organic acids such as glycolic acid, a natural constituent of sugar cane juice and lactic acid, found in sour milk and tomato juice. This is the mildest of the peel formulas and produces light peels for treatment of fine wrinkles, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne. There is minimal discomfort using this acid so usually no anesthetic is given because the patient feels only a slight stinging when the solution is applied. Phenol is the strongest of the chemical solutions and produces a deeper skin peel. For this procedure the patient is under anesthesia as it would be dramatically painful otherwise.
Effects of the Chemical Peel:
- Reduces wrinkling, dryness and uneven pigmentation - Aids in the control of acne - Smooths rough dry skin and improves the texture of sun-damaged skin
Chemical Peel, the Down Side
- The acid causes stinging, redness, irritation and dryness - You may have to go through it several times as it can take multiple treatments for desired results - Redness and swelling is common after the procedure
Phenol peels may: - Pose a risk for patients with heart problems - Permanently remove facial freckles - Cause permanent skin lightening by reducing the ability to produce pigment - Require increased protection from the sun for life
Recovery time:
- Ranges from one day to 3 weeks - Phenol peels take several months of recovery
Snail Cream:
An innovative idea, snail cream in topical face cream is actually quit sensible. Snails spend a large part of the day exposed to the elements, and to protect themselves they produce a serum which heals their own skin. In a laboratory, the serum can be collected in a very clean fashion and added to facial cream. The serum contains regenerative enzymes, making it a useful option for acne scars healing. This is a topical cream that needs to be applied daily over the course of a long time for results to be noticed. Snail cream is a non-medical solution, therefore you don't need to see a doctor or dermatologist for a prescription. The snail cream is a sensible and painless acne treatment cream.
Results with Snail Cream:
- Stimulates the replacement of damaged skin cells, getting rid of scarring and necrotic tissues - Stimulates the formation of the extra cellular binding between cells, thus improving skin strength, cutting down on fragility - Inhibits microbiological activity of dangerous, pathogenic skin bacteria, including acne.
Snail Cream Cons:
- Not as quick as a chemical peel, results may take a few weeks to see - Have to keep applying cream on a daily basis for an extended period of time
Recovery Times:
- No recovery time
