WHAT IS AN CHEMICAL PEEL?
Using a unique formula of naturally occurring acids found in fruits, an AHA Peel will help the skin to appear fresher and smoother by reducing fine lines and improving skin blemishes, including acne. This is an accelerated exfoliation that improves skin tone and elasticity after repeated treatments.
HOW DOES AN CHEMICAL PEEL WORK?
Two weeks prior to the first peel, a preparation cream will be provided to help remove the top layer of dead skin cells. Following this, recurring treatments with increasing intensity remove the top layers of the skin as well as penetrating the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate skin rejuvenation. A recommended moisturiser and sun protection must be applied on a daily basis after the procedure to protect, nourish.
WHEN SHOULD I CONSIDER AN CHEMICAL PEEL?
This treatment can be considered during the early signs of ageing as well as improving dull lifeless skin. It will also help remove the effects of sunspots and mild acne scars. We will spend time with you to decide on the best course of treatment. The AHA peel can also be applied to the skin of the hands, neck and chest.
WILL AN CHEMICAL PEEL BE PAINFUL?
Most patients experience a tingling sensation during the peel process, but very few report any pain.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF AN CHEMICAL PEEL?
While the risks are minimal for this treatment, patients can experience some redness and itching. Swelling and allergic reactions are rare. Also be aware that the new skin revealed will be more sensitive to harmful UV sun rays. A minimum SPF40 sun cream should be used.
