What’s a chemical peel treatment?

Almost any skin imperfection can be addressed with a chemical peel.

Fine lines and wrinkles

Scars

Acne

Dark spots

Rough Skin

Sun damage

Open pores

Chemical exfoliation involves applying a chemical solution that removes layers of damaged skin cells. Depending on the peel used, it can be superficial, medium or deep.

The new skin is smoother, more uniform and has fewer blemishes.

There are a number of sessions required, depending on the depth of treatment and recovery time you’re comfortable with. Eventually, the healthy skin within is unveiled.

Chemical peels are often used on the face. However, it may also be used on other body parts, including the hands, décolleté, arms, or localised areas of the back and legs. 

A chemical peel can be performed independently, but I usually combine it with other procedures in my Aesthetic clinic in order to enhance efficiency and effectiveness.

You get better results with a deeper chemical peel, but it also takes longer to recover, plus requires preparation prior to the treatment. 

To discuss your specific needs, you need to schedule a consultation

Light chemical peel

A light chemical peel is an exfoliation treatment that only reaches the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin). 

It’s perfect for people who don’t want or can’t afford to have their face’s skin peeling visibly

We use it to treat mild acne, superficial fine lines, uneven skin tone and dryness

You might have a light peel every two to five weeks. 

It simply causes a minor reddening of the skin, which goes away within a few hours.

Medium chemical peel

A medium chemical peel exfoliates skin cells of both epidermis and superficial dermis (middle layer of skin).

It’s used to deeper wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone, including melasma. It is performed in a single session. To achieve or maintain the desired result, you may need to repeat the procedure after six months.

Increased redness, more apparent desquamation, and dry skin peeling are all common side effects.

You should be ready to expect 7 to 10 days of downtime.

F.A.Q.

Chemical peels often cause a burning sensation that lasts between five and twenty minutes for most people.

  • The effects of a light chemical peel are mild at first, but they become more noticeable when treatments are repeated regularly. 
  • For a medium chemical peel, treated skin will be visibly improved.

Results from chemical exfoliation are not permanent. Ageing and new sun damage can cause new wrinkles and skin discolourations over time.  

If you want to preserve your achievements, you have to maintain them.

  • Light chemical peels leave skin red, dry, and slightly irritated; however, these side effects may diminish with each subsequent application. If you want to, you can generally put makeup on the next day.
  • The skin will be red and puffy after a medium chemical peel. You may also experience a stinging sensation. A follow-up visit to my Aesthetic clinic is necessary to track your progress. Any redness can be covered with cosmetics after five or seven days.

The rejuvenated skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun after any peel. During your consultation, I will advise you on how to protect your skin effectively.
