What is a chemical peel treatment?

A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. The skin that grows back after a peel is smoother and younger looking. Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles, skin discoloration, and scars — typically on the face. They can be done at different depths — light, medium, or deep — depending on your desired results. Each type of peel uses a different chemical solution. Deeper chemical peels produce more dramatic results, but also involve longer recovery times.

Why should you have a chemical treatment?

Frequently Asked Questions

What Skin Concerns Can Chemical Peels Address?

Chemical peels are versatile treatments that can effectively address a range of skin concerns. They are particularly beneficial for reducing fine lines and wrinkles, especially those under the eyes and around the mouth. These peels also work well in improving the appearance of mild scars and treating certain types of acne. Additionally, they are used to treat skin issues like age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking contraceptive medication. People also seek chemical peels to improve the overall texture and tone of their skin, making it appear fresher and younger.

Are There Different Types of Chemical Peels?

Yes, there are different types of chemical peels, each varying in strength and depth of skin penetration. The main types include light (superficial) peels, which use mild acids like alpha-hydroxy acid to gently exfoliate the skin; medium peels, which use trichloroacetic or glycolic acid to reach the middle and outer layer of skin, treating moderate skin discoloration and wrinkles; and deep peels, which penetrate several layers of skin and address more significant issues like deeper wrinkles and scars. The choice of peel depends on the specific skin concerns and desired results.

How Should I Prepare for a Chemical Peel?

To prepare for a chemical peel, it’s recommended to follow a few steps for optimal results and safety. Firstly, avoid any harsh skin treatments or excessive sun exposure for about two weeks prior. It’s also advisable to stop using any products containing retinol or other strong exfoliants a week before the treatment. Additionally, ensuring your skin is clean and free of any makeup or lotions before the procedure is important. Following these preparatory steps can help enhance the effectiveness of the peel and reduce the risk of complications.

What Can I Expect During the Chemical Peel Process?

During a chemical peel process, your skin will be cleansed thoroughly before the application of the peel solution. You may experience a tingling or warming sensation as the solution works on your skin. The duration of the peel depends on its type and strength. After the appropriate time, the solution will be removed or neutralised. Your skin might appear red or feel sensitive post-treatment, similar to a sunburn effect, but It’s important to follow our specific aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing and optimal results.

What Post-Treatment Care is Recommended After a Chemical Peel?

Post-treatment care after a chemical peel at our salon includes specific and important steps. Firstly, it’s crucial to protect your skin from the sun by using a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day. We recommend keeping the skin well-moisturised with gentle, non-irritating products. Avoid picking or peeling at flaking skin, as this can cause scarring. Refrain from using exfoliating agents or harsh skincare products for a period advised by our therapists. Following these guidelines will ensure proper healing and enhance the benefits of your chemical peel.

How Long Will It Take to See Results from a Chemical Peel?

The time it takes to see results from a chemical peel can vary depending on the type of peel and individual skin characteristics. Generally, lighter, superficial peels may show immediate effects with brighter, more radiant skin. However, for deeper peels aimed at more significant skin concerns, it might take a few days to a week for the skin to fully heal and reveal the final results. It’s important to remember that multiple sessions may be required for optimal outcomes, especially for more profound skin issues.

How Often Can I Get a Chemical Peel?

The frequency of chemical peel treatments depends on the type of peel and individual skin response. Light peels can often be done every four to six weeks as they involve minimal downtime. For medium or deeper peels, which have a more significant impact on the skin, a longer interval is usually necessary. In these cases, treatments might be spaced several months apart.
