Chemical peels are an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure to treat skin imperfections, fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles, helping to boost skin tone and texture. They revitalise the appearance of the skin and improve the complexion of the face, although the treatments can also be performed on other parts of the body such as the neck and hands.
What is a chemical peel and how does it work
Chemical peel procedure involves safely removing the outer layers of damaged skin to reveal new, healthy skin layers. The result is a more youthful appearance.
What are the effects
The effects of a chemical peel can reduce fine lines, smoothing rough, dry or flaking skin, acne marks and age spots. The deeper peels can combat more pronounced wrinkles, scarring and pigmentation problems, giving skin a more even appearance.
How long is the recovery
Rehabilitation time is dependent on the depth of peel, with some patients experiencing little or no downtime.
When will I see results
Significant improvement is not expected until you complete a series of peels. Generally 3-6 peels spaced between 2 - 4 weeks.
