What is a skin peel?
A skin peel is a treatment which uses a solution made up of different types of acids to rejuvenate and renew the skin through increased cell turnover. Skin peels act as a chemical exfoliant, removing the upper layers of skin and dead skin cells to reveal the fresh, new skin underneath. There are a number of different skin peels available containing different combinations and quantities of acids. Peels range in severity from superficial, which work on the uppermost layers of the skin and give the skin a radiant glow, to deep peels, which penetrate down into the dermis and can cause layers of skin to peel away.
Chemical peels are a fantastic addition to any aesthetic or skin clinic as they treat a variety of skin conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, sun damage, scarring, and acne. As the popularity has risen for aesthetic treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers, so has the interest in skin rejuvenation treatments.
What is involved in a skin peel treatment?
The skin is thoroughly cleansed and then the peel solution is applied to the skin. Depending on the peel treatment being carried out, the solution may be left on the skin for a couple of minutes or for longer. The patient may experience some heat or tingling during this time. Once the time is up, the peel solution is neutralised and removed from the skin. Sun protection will then be applied as the skin will be particularly sensitive to the sun following a peel.
