A chemical peel is an in-clinic treatment designed to address skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, acne, scarring, dull and lifeless skin. When used as a cosmetic treatment, a ‘peel’ is achieved by applying a solution of alpha hydroxyl acids, phenol, lactic or salicylic acid, or trichloroacetic acid to the skin to make it smoother and to exfoliate dead skin cells. Once applied, the chemical solution help the loose and dead skin cells to exfoliate naturally over the coming days. Gone are the day of ‘Samantha from Sex and the City’ red and blistered faces after a peel; our in-clinic treatments at Skin by Dr Caroline are gentle yet effective, with minimal downtime.
The skin peel is one of the most ancient but very effective cosmetic procedure. It was practised in some of the world’s earliest civilisations such as Rome, Egypt and Greece. Today, they are more popular because they offer almost immediate results. Typically performed to remove the dead upper layer of your skin cells, chemical peels have a lot of benefits to your skin in general.
Provided as an effective treatment for wrinkles, facial blemishes and uneven pigmentation, chemical peels not only enhance but also improve the texture of your skin.
Uses of Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are offered as a treatment at Skin by Dr Caroline’s Advanced Aesthetics and Skin Clinic in Hertfordshire for the following reasons;
Prior to a skin peel treatment, there are a few things that you should be aware of. For instance, you need to tell your skin professional if you have a history of keloid scarring, cold sores or recent facial sun exposure, and any current medications.
Who Can Benefit From a Chemical or Skin Peel?
In short – everyone can benefit from a chemical peel. At Skin by Dr Caroline, we are able to carefully tailor the treatment to your specific skin type and skin concerns, creating a bespoke plan that works for you. We use products by medical grade AlumierMD, Circadia, and DMK, offering a large choice to create the perfect peel and exfoliation for your skin needs, whether that be alleviating acne, improving your skin texture, reducing fine lines, eliminating age spots and generally improving on the visible effects of sun damage.
Possible Risks of Chemical Peel Skin Treatment
It is very rare for a chemical peel procedure to result in any serious complications, but this does not mean that no risks exist entirely. The possible risks and side effects of a chemical or skin peel procedure might include, swelling, infection, scarring, outbreaks of cold sores and temporary changes in your skin tone.
There are things you can do to reduce the side effects of a chemical peel procedure, and the foremost is to follow your skin therapist’s instruction in both pre- and post-peel care, including careful use of the aftercare kit, if given, and avoiding sun exposure for 7 days pre- and post- treatment.
