The chemical peel treatment is great for those who would like skin to instantly feel smoother and less wrinkled. The procedure works by the clinician smoothing the solution over the face creating this to blister and eventually the old skin will come away leaving an improved appearance.
Chemical peels can be used on the face, neck and hands. They work to improve wrinkles caused by sun damage, reducing fine lines under the eyes and mouth, treat certain types of acne as well as fighting against age spots, freckles and dark patches.
Mild peels may be repeated at one to four week intervals until the patient has the desired look.
Medium to deeper peels can be repeated 6 to 12 months, after this would be advised by the clinician.
During the chemical peel treatment the patient will feel a burning sensation that would last up to ten minutes once the procedure has been completed a cold compress may be applied to soothe the skin.
The acids within the peel used work by bringing the pH of the skin to an optimum acidity level. This action chemically loosens the "glue" that binds the dead and damaged cells causing exfoliation and allow the promotion of new cell growth leaving the skin healthy and radiant.
