What is it?

Understanding the process

Experience the ultimate skin transformation

How does it work?

It works by simply using an exfoliating solution to remove the outermost layers of skin. The regrowing skin has a smoother texture. Another procedure may be required to fully get the expected results. The aim is to treat and help clear the skin. Our skin suffers from different issues and that's the work of chemical peel, to give solutions to skin problems. It involves applying a solution to make the outer layers peel off and make the skin look at its best.

There are three varieties of chemical peels available. The light, medium, and deep chemical peels. The decision is based on the particular issues and intended outcomes. Acids like salicylic acid are frequently present in peeling solutions which promote the removal of dead cells. After the treatment, the skin may be sensitive, and red, and need special attention as it heals.

Several benefits include:

  • Reducing acne scars
  • Treat uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improving skin textures
  • Addressing photodamage

The Chemical Peel Procedure

Understanding exfoliation

How does a chemical peel work?

A peel treatment involves applying a chemical solution to remove dead skin cells making the regrowing skin look smoother. You might need to have a light or medium peel more than once to achieve the desired outcome. Peels are used to remove scars, wrinkles, and discoloured skin. They can be done with other cosmetic treatments or performed alone. And they can be carried out at varying depths, from shallow to profound. Although they produce more dramatic effects, deeper chemical peels require longer recovery times.

The doctor will cleanse the skin and may require topical anesthesia before the procedure. They may also require sedation for deeper and more abrasive chemical skin peels to ensure that the patients are comfortable during the process and then a chemical solution will be applied to the skin leaving it for a few minutes to start working on the epidermis layer. A light stinging or a mild heat sensation may be experienced. The doctor will remove the solution and apply a cold compress to soothe the treated areas right after the procedure.

Addressing skin concerns

What makes a chemical peel necessary?

Well, having a peel is a great option for an individual who wants to have good skin and boost confidence. Especially to those who have persistent skin issues. It is best to know your skin type to be able to choose the right peel treatment for you.

Following Post Procedure Instructions

Does the recovery process take long?

Recovery timeframes may vary depending on the degree of the chemical peel and each person's healing process. Patients may experience little to no downtime after mild or medium peels, and skin peeling and redness may last for a few days or a week. One to two weeks or longer may be needed to fully recover from deep peels

It is important to follow the directions from your doctor. Directives may include moisturizing, using mild skin care products, and avoiding sun exposure. Peeling with redness and inflammation that make an individual uncomfortable are common during the first stage of the healing process. If you are experiencing extreme pain and swelling or any infection-related symptoms, contact your doctor. Proper skincare routine and protecting your skin from the sun may preserve the benefits of the chemical peel and promote long-term skin wellness.
