Are you sick of tired, dry-looking skin? Chemical peels are a great solution - providing a rejuvenated, refreshed look. Chemical peels can be very effective in removing several layers of sun damage and uneven skin, and can assist in stimulating collagen production to improve texture and tone.
There are varying peels such as glycolic, lactic, salicylic, Jessner and Trichloracetic (TCA) to name a few. They can be either superficial, moderate or deep.
Superficial peels often don’t have any down time, however there might be a slight redness that is generally resolved within 24 to 48 hours. Moderate to deeper peels will require some downtime. These peels generally result in intense inflammation and swelling, and this can take up to two weeks to resolve.
Skin peels can be performed every three to four weeks and a series of three are generally recommended depending on the depth of the peel and your skin type.
It is paramount you have your skin assessed and prepared for the chemical peel prior to treatment. Your professional practitioner will be able to advise you on what treatments best suit your skin needs.
