What to Expect from a Chemical Peel
Skin peels work by removing dead cells in layers of the skin. This process stimulates the cellular turnover, which causes growth and skin renewal. By eliminating damaged skin and revealing the fresh layers underneath, a chemical peel is an incredibly effective way to turn back the clock.
Chemical peels gently stimulate collagen production and increases your skin’s natural moisture factor. Peels also highly increase the skin’s receptiveness to other non-surgical treatments and medical grade skin care products.
Anti-ageing peels uses active ingredients like encapsulated Vitamin A, Vitamin C, L-Ascorbic Acid, and other vital nutrients to ensure that the new layer of skin is an ideal condition.
The Types of Chemical Peels
At the Medispa Institute in Dee Why, we offer a wide variety of skin peels options. These peels are classified as superficial, medium, and deep. The categories relate to the depth of the skin being peeled.
This type of peel removes only the very top layer of skin. This painless procedure is done without anaesthesia. Following the procedure, you skin will peel after around four to five days. This will make your face look fresher but it won’t remove fine lines, freckles, or sunspots. For optimal results, superficial peels are recommended to be done a series of sessions.
The next level of skin peels, a medium peel can tackle freckles, discolouration, sun damage, and fine lines. This type of procedure is typically done with with an analgesia. Following the procedure, you may feel some irritation, similar to a mild sunburn, but no pain. Your skin will peel one week later and a fresh layer of skin will be revealed.
The most intensive option, a deep peel will penetrate numerous layers of skin. This is done under general aesthetic and involves a healing process of one week to ten days. Due to the intensity of this peel, it will provide you with the most dramatic results.
Who Is Suitable for a Chemical Peel?
Superficial skin peels are suitable for the majority of skin types. Medium to deep chemical peels are best suited for fair skin. Individuals with darker skin are more apt to having hyperpigmentation after their peels.
