Improved skin condition
Up to 90 minutes
A chemical peel is often used when a person wishes to revive a tired looking appearance by improving the tone and texture of the skin. Light, medium or deep peels are available in most aesthetic clinics, improving a variety of different concerns depending on the depth of peel that is chosen. They can be applied to the face, neck, décolletage and hands and work by resurfacing the skin so that healthy new skin cells can grow.
A consultation is carried out prior to the procedure which will determine which chemical peel is most suitable for you and the concerns that are to be addressed. The treatment begins by cleansing the skin in preparation, before the solution is applied in layers to the skin of the affected area. After it has been given the required amount of time to develop (which can be up to 60 minutes), the solution is washed off. With some peels, a massage or a serum is also applied to the treatment area.
With a light, or superficial peel, the top layers of the skin are removed to improve the look of fine lines, pigmentation, sun damage, enlarged pores and acne / scarring.
Medium depth peels remove the top and middle layers of the complexion to help reduce the appearance of deeper wrinkles, acne scarring and an uneven tone.
When a deep peel is used, the deeper layers of the skin are targeted to reduce areas of pigmentation – such as freckles, age spots and melasma, advanced wrinkles and more significant acne scarring.
Following the treatment the skin will feel sensitive and you will be advised to take care when washing. You will also need to ensure a high SPF is applied to protect your skin from the effects of the sun.
Although most people are considered to be suitable for a chemical peel, it is generally those with a fairer skin tone whose results are most noticeable. The type of chemical peel that is beneficial for you will be suggested according to your concerns and expected outcome.
You can help to ensure your safety by having your chemical peel undertaken at a verified clinic where the practitioners are trained and experienced. As this treatment is carried out by a qualified doctor at The Facebible, you can feel assured that an informed decision has been made as to the type of peel that has been recommended.
Chemical peels should not cause the patient significant discomfort, and if your skin becomes irritated after application of the solution, you should inform your practitioner who will look to wash it off. Post-treatment sensitivity should also not be painful.
In some cases a patient reacts to the solution, but this is rare and the consultation will often highlight any potential risks so they can be avoided. Your medical professional will make sure you are adequately advised in terms of caring for your sensitive skin in the few days that follow the treatment.
The results of a chemical peel can often be achieved in one session. Most patients will arrange to have this treatment performed on a regular basis – once or twice a year – to maintain their youthful and glowing complexion.
