Slow or irregular cell turnover causes many common skin problems. Skin damage can take the form of wrinkles, rough blotchy texture, and pigmentation and discoloration of skin.
A chemical peel is a procedure that removes damaged skin and promotes rejuvenation in one of the least invasive ways. Chemical peels contain active ingredients that stimulate the shedding of the top layer of the epidermis. When dead and damaged skin cells are removed, a new layer of skin is produced giving an appearance of younger healthier skin.
Peels come in different strengths and in all cases, clients will notice an improved appearance and vitality of skin.
Chemical peels can be used on most parts of the body including the upper back, chest and breast area, and stretch marks over the abdomen and thighs.
Chemical peels are safe, and very well tolerated with no need for skin anaesthesia.
Most people will require 3-5 sessions.
Each session might be progressive in terms of strength, and will take 30-45 minutes per session.
There is no downtime at all, though some people might experience some tenderness and redness to the treatment area. This causes very little discomfort and will disappear by the end of the day. You can proceed with normal activities after the treatment.
Expect the following benefits: the smoothing of body wrinkles, the brightening of dull skin, the fading of age spots and other pigmentation, and an overall smoother, healthier and brighter skin texture. The appearance of stretch marks will also improve.
