A chemical peel is an aesthetic procedure performed to achieve better skin tone and to remove fine lines, especially on the face. The chemical solution removes outer layers of skin which are damaged by age, sun, acne, wrinkles, or pigmentation problems. Removing the outer skin prompts the body to generate a new layer of skin cells which are tainted by the previous skin condition.
Reasons for Considering a Chemical Peel:
Reduce facial wrinkles and lines.
Improve sun-damaged skin.
Correct age spots and pigmentation problems.
Lighten scars (especially from acne)
There are several different types of chemical solutions which can be used and our Aesthetician Clare will select what is best for you based on their skin condition, color, and desired result.
Generally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and recovery time as well as a strong skin care regimen to continue with your rejuvenating progress.
