Chemical peel is a treatment used to improve the appearance of the skin. This procedure involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin, which causes the outer layer of skin to peel off, revealing smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin underneath.
Chemical peels can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. The depth of the peel can be adjusted to suit the individual’s needs and goals, ranging from a light peel that targets the outermost layer of skin to a deeper peel that penetrates the middle or lower layers of the skin.
There are three main types of chemical peels: superficial, medium, and deep. Superficial peels use mild acids to target the outermost layer of skin, while medium peels use stronger acids to penetrate the middle layers of skin. Deep peels a potent acid, to target the lower layers of skin. In our clinic we have a array of different peels to choose from according to the patients goals and expectations.
The procedure typically takes around 30 minutes to an hour , and the skin may be red and sensitive for a few days following the treatment. Patients may require multiple treatments to achieve their desired results, depending on the depth of the peel and the severity of their skin concerns.
While chemical peels are generally safe when performed by a qualified and experienced practitioner, there are some risks and potential side effects, including redness, swelling, scarring, and changes in skin color. It’s important to discuss these risks with your practitioner and follow their aftercare instructions carefully to minimize the risk of complications.
Chemical peels have a signicant impact on improving the appearance of the skin. By removing dead skin cells and promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells, chemical peels can leave the skin looking smoother, brighter, and more youthful.
Additionally we have an option of a mechanical peel, the Dermaplanning that is lighter , more superficial for those with very sensitive skin.
