What Are The Benefits Of Chemical Skin Peels?
Chemical skin peels can be very effective at reducing the appearance of fine surface lines and wrinkles, blemishes, pigment problems and acne scarring, they help to improve the appearance and texture of your skin. They can help reduce the ageing effects of smoking and sun exposure, giving your skin a more youthful, healthy glow.
How Do Chemical Skin Peels Work?
A chemical skin peel works by removing old, dead skin cells at the surface of the skin to promote new cell growth. Chemical peels can be used to treat a particular area (such as lines around the eyes or mouth) or all over the face, arms, hands and neck. There are three types of chemical skin peel: superficial chemical peel, medium chemical peel, or deep chemical peel. For optimum results homecare products can be recommended to prep your skin pre and post peel.
What Happens During The Procedure?
For best results depending on the condition of the skin you may be advised to prepare the skin 2 weeks prior to your chemical peel. The procedure only takes about 10 to 20 minutes. During this time, you may experience anything from a mild tingling to a warming of the skin as the peel is applied; the peel is then neutralized depending on which peel is used and appropriate skin care and sun block is applied.
What Will I Look Like Immediately After Each Treatment?
Following your treatment it is expected to look slightly pink/red, you will be able to resume your day-to-day activities.
What Should I Do/Not Do After Treatment?
You will be able to return to your normal activities straight away. You should avoid sun exposure and effective sun protection needs to be applied. Depending on the type of peel applied strength, and the number of coats will depend on if you will have much flaking or peeling of the skin, this will be discussed in your initial consultation.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
For the best results, a course of four- six treatments, spaced out at weekly – four-weekly intervals depending on the peel and condition of the skin. Some patients may require more treatments as every treatment plan is different.
The Perfect Peel is a medium to deep peel depending if a booster is used and some clients may only need one of these depending on the condition of the skin.
