Chemical peels are effective in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, large pores and blackheads, blemish prone, dull and aging skin, hyperpigmentation, sun spots and sun damage. Chemical peels work well on all skin types from light to darker shades of skin. A chemical peel specific to your skin type will be used in order to achieve the best results and reduce the incidence of complications. Chemical peels work by chemically irritating the top layers of the skin causing them to peel and shed, thereby speeding up the body’s skin cycle. There are superficial, medium and deep skin peels available. Superficial and medium depth peels can be administered by Aesthetic Therapists, but deep peels need to be administered by a Healthcare Professional. During a peel you will feel a stinging or burning sensation, but generally the process is well tolerated and not painful. Fanning the skin helps to cool and soothe during the treatment. We may apply several coats of the chemical during your treatment. This will take about 30-45 minutes including cleansing, preparing the skin and aftercare.
