Many skin problems are associated with an excessive build of dead skin cells, which make the skin thick and dull, usually clogging the pores.
Skin peels can offer a revolutionary way to effectively treat ageing skin, acne, reduce sun damage and hyper pigmentation. This procedure can also help the skin to appear smoother, healthier, plumper and tighter.
How do they work?
Chemical peels procedure involves the application of a chemical solution to the surface of the skin to produce the careful removal of its outer layers. The amount of skin removed will depend on the type of chemical used, the strength of this product and how long it is left on the skin.
This treatment is used to resurface the facial skin following severe effects such as:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Pigmentation variance over face
Post inflammatory effects of hyper pigmentation after acne
Aging due to sun damage to reduce deep wrinkles
It works on all skin types and colors and is suitable for facial and non facial skin (like neck and hands)
The depth of peel is dependent on the primary skin condition to be treated. There are 2 main layers of the skin. The epidermis which sits on top of the dermis. Skin thickness is classified as thin, thick and normal.
• Light exfoliation: This will penetrate the top layer of skin to reduce fine lines, large pores, comedons (resistant black heads) and minor skin pigmentation problems. The time period for healing differs from person to person through this red effect from the skin peel should be less within 3-6 days.
• Deep exfoliation: This penetrates the epidermis to the basal layer which is the bottom layer of epidermis, the top layer of skin, so it is moderate in depth. The healing time is 6-10 days. This can be applied for deeper lines and acne scarring correction and pigmentation problems the time period for healing differs from person to person though the red effect from the skin peel should be less within 6-10 days.
• Standard deep peel: This deep peel penetrates the papillary dermis which part of the dermis and is used for marked pigmentation and deep acne scarring problems as well as deep lines and wrinkles. The time period for healing differs from person to person though the red effect from the skin peel should be less within 8-12days.
