Types of Chemical Peels in Glasgow?
There are many different types of skin peels, although they can all be grouped according to how deep they go into the skin — Superficial, Medium, and Deep. Optimal results depend on skin types and choosing the appropriate skin peel treatment for the conditions being treated.
Chemicals used for the exfoliation can range from lactic acid for mild peels to carbolic acid for a deeper peel. One of the most popular solutions for a medium depth peel is glycolic acid, which is great for fighting acne scars. Salicylic acid is a good option for acne scarring because it also cleans the dirt in the pores that usually leads to acne.

Deep Chemical Peels
Deep chemical peels deeply exfoliate the skin and can yield the most impressive results. However, the price of such great results is that there is an extended downtime when compared with light and medium treatments. There is also a higher risk of complications.
If you want your deep chemical peel in Glasgow done by a leading aesthetic medicine specialist, book your skin peels with Dr Darren McKeown at my cosmetic clinic.
Superficial Chemical Peels
This treatment is also called a light chemical peel. Compared with a deep peel treatment, a superficial peel produces less dramatic results, but this can be built upon by repeating a series of superficial peels to achieve an overall impressive result in fighting the signs of ageing on the face.
The biggest benefit of this approach is that the superficial chemical peels have very little or no downtime, minimal risk of side effects and complications, and are suitable for most skin types.
The improvements are subtle at first, but with more treatments, there will be a healthy glow and a reduction in fine lines, acne scars, or sun damage.
Medium Chemical Peels
A medium chemical peel is ideal for those who need a greater degree of renewal of the skin cells, but who are not wanting to commit to the downtime and risks involved with a deep peel.
Medium depth peels, like superficial skin peels, will need multiple treatments to see the full results of smoother texture and fewer wrinkles — but the rejuvenation of the face will certainly increase with each maintenance peel.
