What is Chemical Peel?
Chemical Peel are liquids brushed on to the face to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of new cells.
The aim of this cosmetic procedure is to improve the appearance of the facial skin – for example, by reducing age spots and evening out skin tone.
Who is an Ideal Candidates?
Chemical Peel can be used to treat a whole range of skin complaints, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne and acne scarring, age spots, enlarged pores, dark areas and sun-damaged skin. This treatment is ideal if you are looking to quite literally give your skin a fresh start.
Who is Not a Good Candidate?
Chemical Peel are not very effective for the one who has very deep acne scarring. If you had waxing, electrolysis, and laser hair removal less than one week before the peel avoid doing it and please wait more. Also we do not treat who is pregnant or breastfeeding.
Risks and Safety
As it heals, your skin would also be more sensitive to the sun, so you need to use sunscreen for at least a month after treatment.
The practitioner carrying out the procedure should advise how you can reduce your risk of side effects and complications.
Possible risks include:
- darkening or lightening of the skin this can be permanent
- cold sores returning if you’ve had these before
- scarring or an infection – although this is rare
