WE OFFER CHEMICAL PEELS FROM OUR CLINICS IN EDINBURGH AND GLASGOW
REVEALING YOUNGER SKIN
Chemical peels are used to treat the superficial signs of ageing in the skin. They are especially effective for treating signs of sun damage, uneven pigmentation, and fine lines and coarseness. The peels work by causing a controlled injury to the skin, following which the skin undergoes a phase of self-repair, emerging at the other end in a better condition than it started.
Types of Peel?
There are many different types of skin peels, although they can all be grouped according to how deep they go in to the skin – superficial, medium and deep. Deep chemical peels can yield the most dramatic results, but those results come at a price of extended ‘down time’ and a high risk of complications.
By comparison, superficial peels produce less impressive results, although this can be built upon by repeating a series of superficial peels to achieve an overall impressive result. The benefit of this approach is that the superficial peels have very little or no down time, and minimal risk of side effects and complication.
Depending on the type of peel you are having, and for what reasons, it may be necessary to treat your skin with some prescription strength creams for 2 – 6 weeks before having your peels. The purpose of this preparation is to enhance the effects of the peel and to reduce the chances of developing complications afterward. During this period of skin preparation, it is necessary to wear high factor sunscreen on a daily basis, even on cloudy days, and it is important you keep up your sunscreen throughout the course of your peels and during any healing periods afterward.

CHEMICAL PEEL BENEFITS
AT our professional cosmetic surgery Glasgow clinic, we only use safe solutions that will help your skin to regrow to its best condition. Our cosmetic surgeons will remove the damaged top layers of skin, leaving you with a younger, fresher looking appearance. This is just one of the benefits of our chemical peel Glasgow treatment. After the process:
- Your skin will look and feel smoother.
- Signs of sun damage will be reduced.
- Your skin will look brighter and more even, making it an excellent treatment for those who have scars, pigmentation, acne, and enlarged pores.
- The texture of your skin will feel fresher as the treatment removes dead and damaged skin cells.
- Overall your skin will look clearer as a chemical peel stimulates the regrowth of healthy skin cells and collagen production.
Side effects and complications
The risk of side effects and complications depends on the depth of the peel: deep peels have a high risk of complications, whereas superficial peels are relatively low risk. Following a superficial peel, your skin will remain red for the first 24-48 hours. Around 3 or 4 days after the treatment you will notice some light peeling, similar to the effect of having very dry skin, although most people are able to tolerate this whilst going about their day-to-day activities and so the treatment usually has no down time.
Possible complications with deeper peels include scarring and loss of pigmentation, although it would be rare for these effects to happen with modern superficial chemical peeling techniques.
