Chemical peel

A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands, and sometimes the back. The solution is applied to the skin for a certain time, and that causes it to exfoliate. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother than the old skin.

Benefits of skin peels

Skin peels are underrated and underused. They offer a great way to improve the skin sometimes in just one treatment or a short course. They can provide a significant improvement to a variety of conditions from acne, acne scarring, wide pores, oily skin, pigmentation, vascular elements, whitening of the skin and much more.

The procedure

Skin peels are acids and need to be handled with care by a trained plastic surgeon. After cleaning the skin and applying a toner to control the PH, the eyes, hair, nostrils, ears and mouth are protected with a barrier cream. The peel is applied in timed layers until a result is achieved like frosting. The peel is the neutralised and a cooling cream and moisturiser is applied.

Options

Superficial peel: Mild acid is used to penetrate only the outer layer of skin to gently exfoliate it. 

Medium peel: like Glycolic or trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is applied to penetrate  middle layers of skin. The treatment is used to improve age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and skin discoloration.

Deep peel: Tricholoracetic acid (TCA), Jessner or phenol is applied to deeply penetrate the skin to remove damaged skin

After Care

After a chemical peel you will be given instructions on how to care for your skin. It is important to tone and moisturise your skin afterwards and on a daily basis. Use a sun screen cream daily to avoid direct sun light. Do not remove any peeled skin, the flakes will fall off on their own. 

The downtime from peels vary depending on the depth and can be up to 1 week. Some peels need to be repeated up to 3 times to get a final result.
