Chemical Peels

Many skin issues arise from the build-up of dead and damaged skin cells. This can result in the skin becoming thick and dull as well as clogged pores.

A chemical peel is a solution which is placed on the skin to remove dead skin cells and encourage new cell growth, resulting in a smoother, more youthful-looking complexion. The depth of the peel will depend on the strength of the product and the length of time on the skin.

There are three depths of chemical peel

Light – A light chemical peel removes the outer layer of the skin (epidermis). This type of peel is used to treat acne, uneven skin tone, dryness and fine lines.

Medium – removes the outer layer of the skin and portions of the upper dermal layers. This type of peel is used to treat acne scars, uneven skin tone, and wrinkles

Deep – penetrates the outer layer as well as the skin from the upper and lower dermis. This peel is used for deeper wrinkles, scars or precancerous growths.

With good sun protection, results can last months to years, depending on the depth of the peel. Generally, the deeper peels have a more long-lasting effect.

Most peels are performed in less than one hour, depending on the size of the area being treated.

It depends on the strength of the peel. Immediately after treatment, the skin may be red and tight, there can also be peeling for about 3-5 days. Cleansing, moisturising, and using sunscreen are highly recommended after a chemical peel. Avoid sun exposure during the early healing period. Do not peel off loose skin and allow the skin to exfoliate on its own.

Superficial chemical peels are likely to cause a tingle sensation in the skin after the peel has been performed but they are unlikely to cause pain. Medium-depth peels are likely to make the skin slightly sore but this slight discomfort can be alleviated by a cool fan or compress to the area of the skin.

Phenol (deep) chemical peels are most likely to cause pain. As a result, the client will be given an anaesthetic, prior to the peel, to reduce any potential pain that they might experience.
