Chemical Peels can renew your skin and remove damages that the environment and aging causes. This form of treatments is a safe standalone procedure and is effective at removing skin dullness, sun spots, and signs of aging. If your skin suffers from discoloration, acne scars, sun spots, and fine lines, chemical peel is the ideal treatment for you. Chemical peels are non-invasive cosmetic procedures that improve the appearance of skin not just on the face, but also the neck, legs, arms, or body, with the exception of sensitive areas such as near the eyes or on the genitals. By exfoliating the uppermost layers of skin, a chemical peel can reduce the appearance of skin abnormalities, revealing the smooth, healthy skin below. chemical peels can also promote collagen production. If you want to give your skin a more rejuvenated, youthful appearance, book a consultation so we can discuss the chemical peels offered at Aesthetics Clinic.
Our skin naturally sheds layers and produces new ones throughout our life. However, this doesn’t occur in a uniform manner, which can leave skin uneven, blotchy, and even rough in spots. In addition, blemishes and wrinkles are not improved by this natural process. That’s where chemical peels come in. A chemical peel is composed of an acid-based solution that is applied to the skin. The acids in the solution exfoliate the skin by chemically weakening the bonds that hold skin cells together, loosening the uppermost layers of the skin. This will allow those layers to easily be removed, revealing healthy, smooth, new skin below. This process can also boost the growth of new skin cells and encourage the production of collagen, which is vital for the skin’s firmness. The name chemical peel can be a bit misleading. Not all chemical peels cause the skin to peel. Some acids treat the skin by peeling it at the microscopic level. Also, you may experience different results depending on your skin type. Those with thicker, oilier skin may not peel much at all, while those who have thin, more sensitive skin may peel a lot.
During your chemical peel procedure, our medical professional will apply the chemical peel solution to the area of skin to be treated, and then gently remove the dead skin cells. Chemical peel treatments usually last less than an hour, depending on the area of your body you’re having treated. All chemical peels are performed on an outpatient basis. You may see results after just one treatment, but depending on the severity of your skin condition, multiple treatments may be needed to achieve optimal results.
Immediately following a chemical peel, your skin will be sensitive to sun exposure. You may also experience redness, crusting and flaking of your skin. This is completely normal, and will only last a few days, or possibly a couple of weeks, depending on the strength of the peel. Once the treated skin has flaked off, beautiful, new skin with fewer blemishes, wrinkles and blotches will be revealed. If you properly care for your newly revealed, healthy skin, you can achieve long-lasting results.
