WHAT ARE CHEMICAL PEELS?
At Dr Grace Kelly Aesthetic Skin Clinic in Chalfont St Peter, many of our patients find that chemical peels benefit the complexion when they are concerned about conditions such as: fine lines, pigmentation, age spots, dull / dry skin, sun damage, acne and mild acne scarring. The type of chemical peel that our experienced practitioners will recommend will depend on your skin’s needs and the concerns it is specifically designed to improve.
HOW DO CHEMICAL SKIN PEELS WORK?
At our Buckinghamshire clinic, we have a range of specialist medical chemical peels available, including: ZO stimulator peel, ZO 3 step peel and Obagi blue radiance peel. During the chemical peel treatment, your skin will be cleansed before a chemical solution is applied to the skin in layers. The solution is made up of a unique combination of acids, often including glycolic acid and salicylic acid, which can differ depending on the type of skin peel that is being used. Our expert practitioners suggest the most suitable chemical peel for your individual needs, which is designed to address your complexion at the required depth.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM A CHEMICAL PEEL?
The chemical peel causes mild trauma to the skin, whereby the layers it was intended to reach start to peel away. The results of the treatment at our Buckinghamshire practice can take anytime from a few weeks to to a few months to fully develop, depending on the type of peel. A superficial depth peel can give the complexion a fresher look that restores its natural glow. A medium depth peel can create a smoother appearance whilst also reducing pigmentation for a more even tone. For those who undergo a deep peel, a smoother, fresher, more even appearance is also clearer and less blotchy.
