What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are a method of regenerating and resurfacing the skin by inducing a controlled wound to the skin. They remove the top skin layers to help induce collagen remodelling and therefore improve sun-damaged skin, acne scars, skin pigmentation problems, wrinkles, skin texture, and the overall appearance of the skin. The strength of the chemical peel will determine its depth. Deeper peels will have a longer recovery period, but will also result in greater improvement to the skin.

How are chemical peels performed?

Chemical peels are best performed by an experienced doctor. The skin is first thoroughly cleansed. You will be asked to keep your eyes closed during the procedure, which may also be covered. The chemical peel solution is then applied to the face. The procedure is timed, and you will be asked about your comfort level. Neutralisation of the peel can be performed any time during and at the end of the peel. A number of serums are applied to aid the skin with the recovery process and to achieve the desired result. The peel is completed usually by placing sunscreen and a soothing balm on the face.
