Chemical skin peels encourage the growth in cell turnover, which enhances the production of elastin and collagen; stimulating the growth of new skin.Along with correcting pigmentation, acne and other skin problems, chemical peels also help the skin become more responsive to products, granting deeper penetration and effective absorption.
What You Can Expect
Peels are applied in different strengths and administered at varying depths depending on the patient’s needs. Deeper peels use stronger chemical solutions and require longer recovery times than lighter peels.
During treatment, a chemical solution will be applied to the skin. Patients may feel a tingling sensation as the solution is working on the skin. But, this treatment is usually well tolerated by most patients. Most sessions last about 20 minutes.
The skin can appear slightly red and may sting after receiving a chemical skin peel. This should not alarm patients and this normally resolves within 48 hours of treatment. There is minimal downtime associated with skin peels and you will be free to leave the clinic after the treatment. You can return to your daily routine and go back to work straight away.
