What is a Chemical Peel And Why Should I have One?
A chemical peel will rejuvenate your skin resulting in a youthful, soft, smooth skin. Chemical skin peels use enzymes and acids to remove the dead top layer of skin, to reveal a more youthful, clearer and fresher appearing skin. Basically, a chemical peel exfoliates the top layers of your skin. Instead of using a harsh scrub or dermabrasion, different types of chemical ingredients are used to remove the layers of dead skin. Apart from curing your skin blemish issues, chemical peels will also allow the skin care products that you use to be absorbed more effectively.
It is a very popular treatment that is used all over the world and helps to treat wrinkles, fine lines, hyper-pigmentation and sun damage. Why not come and try chemical peel and see how life transforming the results can be for you?
What Type of Skin Peel Do I Need?
We have a whole host of chemical peel treatments available which can offer solutions to a range of skin conditions. It is always our aim to offer the mildest treatment that will be effective, but sometimes deeper peels will be the best option. Our skin experts at Advanced Cosmetic Medicine will access your skin type and condition and recommend a skin peel tailored for you to yield maximal results.
What Ingredients Will Be Used?
Dr Targett our resident skin specialist will determine which chemical peels will work best for your skin type and skin condition. For aging issues and hyper-pigmentation, usually a Glycolic Acid Peel will be suggested. For sensitive skin, lactic acid based peels are often used. If you are seeking a solution to your acne, then a salicylic acid formula or a combination treatment may be used.
How Often Will I Require Treatments?
Unfortunately, having one treatment alone will not be effective. However, don’t be discouraged, you will often see visible results after only one treatment. If you want to have lasting results then regular peels are definitely recommended. After each peel you will find that the chemical ingredients are better able to act, because the upper dead layer of skin has been removed.
What Should I Do Before I have My Peel?
You will need to stop using any retinol or exfoliating products about one week before your appointment. It is also recommended to stop any hair removal procedures one week before having your peel done.
What Does The Skin Peel Procedure Involve?
At Advanced Cosmetic Medicine, your skin care expert will prepare your skin, so there is a smooth base ready for the peel. After the peel has been applied, you may notice a tightening and tingling sensation. Different skin types, will of course react differently. Depending on which skin peel formula you have chosen, the chemical may be left on for a few hours to neutralize or may only be left on for a few minutes.
How Long Will It Take to Recover?
Usually, you will peel for about five days and have red complexion throughout this period. The more intense the peel, the more skin flaking will be noticeable. For milder skin peels, you may not notice any flaking of skin. But rest assured it will be occurring at a cellular level.
What Skin Care Will I Need Post Skin Peel?
This is the stage when you will need to take the most care of your skin. Your face will become more sensitive because the peel has exposed new skin cells. Please be diligent by applying sunscreen every day to the treated area. Dr Targett may recommend other post care treatment at you appointment.
Will There Be Any Downtime?
Depending on the severity of the skin peel treatment, some downtime may be a possibility. Consult with the skin expert at you first appointment. It is never a good idea to have a skin peel just before an important event.
What Is The Mechanism Of Action For Chemical Peels?
- Enhanced skin volume.
- Increased presence of water in the dermis.
- Wrinkles are smoothed.
Stimulation and reorganisation of the structural dermal components.
- Moisture boost.
Increased activity of the fibroblasts. This causes synthesis of the different macromolecules of the extracellular matrix.
Classification of Peels By Depth Of Action
Increases uniformity of skin tone for a more luminous appearance.
Stimulates epidermal growth by removing the stratum corneum.
This causes skin to flake in a similar way to that occurring after excessive exposure to the sun.
It completely removes the epidermis, which then renews until fully regenerated.
Leads to an inflammatory reaction of the reticular dermis, inducing collagen and elastin fibre reconstruction.
