What is Chemical peel?
Chemical peel which is also known as a skin peel is designed to exfoliate the skin making way for fresh skin cells which stimulate collagen and elastin production within the new skin cells. This works by using a acid on the skin to dissolve the top layer of dead skin cells leaving just the live fresh skin cells on the surface of the skin giving a glowing complexion. There are lots of benefits to having a chemical peel facial, it helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and healing scar tissue. The other main benefits of chemical peel facials is the reduction of acne, age spots, melisma and resurfacing the skin. Chemical peels should only be performed by a skin specialist whose had the correct training. Our skincare specialist will apply a thin layer of the peel and leave it on the skin for a few minutes while it dissolves the dead skin, after this the chemical peel will be removed by our specialist and your skin will be neutralized to normalize it’s natural balance. The only after care needed to follow after this treatment is to wear SPF 30 daily to protect the brand new skin from any sun damage. To get the best result from your facial we always suggest having a course of treatments every 4-6 weeks.
Patch tests need to be carried out a minimum of 24 hours before chemical peel.
