FOR A YOUNGER, REFRESHED APPEARANCE
Chemical peels encourage the growth of regenerated skin that is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
FOR LONG TERM SUBTLE RENEWAL THROUGH COLLAGEN INTENSIFYING GROWTH
Chemical peels, as the name suggests, involve exfoliation to both correct contour irregularities and promote regeneration of damaged skin through new collagen formation. It can be used to exfoliate aged and dry skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and tighten skin for a younger and refreshed appearance. Various types of chemical peels are available so an accurate pre-treatment assessment is required not only to optimise results but also prevent unwanted complications.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING TREATMENT?
What to expect and further treatment
Sun protection for two weeks before, and after treatment is essential. Slight redness of the face is expected for most types of peels. Some peeling of the skin may occur over the next 1-2 days as the aged and damaged skin is removed. Mild visual improvement can be observed within a few days but best results are not typically seen until 3-6 months later as new collagen is formed and undergoes remodeling. Chemical peels can also be combined with various pre-treatment regimens including IPL, lasers and mechanical exfoliation for the most dramatic results.
