We offer Chemical Peels from our clinics in London 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.
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, where as 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.
