Chemical peels are a treatment used to resurface the skin and promote the regeneration of skin cells. The peel will help shed the top layers of the skin to improve the overall appearance of the skin, stimulate collagen production, improve pigmentation, sun damage, acne, fine lines, wrinkles, redness and even Rosacea.
There are many types of chemical peels to suit different skin conditions and patient concerns. Chemical peels are categorised into superficial, medium and deep depending on the depth of the skin that the peel is able to penetrate. Dermaplaning can also be used in conjunction with chemical peels for improved penetration.
Downtime of the skin will also vary in accordance with which category the peel fits into. For example, a peel from the superficial category will have minimal downtime as opposed to a peel from the deep category which will result in greater recovery time.
