Over time, peels can dramatically improve the skin’s appearance. Accelerated cell turnover is encouraged when a chemical solution is applied, resulting in smoother, clearer and less wrinkled skin.
During a peel treatment, most people feel a slight tingling sensation that lasts about 5-10 minutes. Putting a cool compress on the skin and flushing the skin with cool water will ease this.
Depending on the individual and the length of time the peel is left on the skin, there may or may not be visible peeling over the course of the next 3-7 days.
Mild peels can be repeated as often as weekly to achieve a desired outcome and then monthly as a maintenance treatment.
An initial consultation will be required to assess the skin and determine the correct type of peel to suit the individual’s needs.
These can be tailored to address issues such as pigmentation, aging or acne prone skin.
