As we age, our skin can begin to show signs of damage and wear, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and discolouration. Thankfully, there are various treatments available to help restore a youthful appearance to the skin. One such treatment is the chemical peel

A chemical peel uses a solution of alpha and beta hydroxy acids (AHAs and BHAs) to exfoliate the skin. The solution is applied to the skin, causing the outer layers to peel away and revealing fresh, new skin underneath.

Chemical peels work by removing the damaged outer layers of skin, revealing fresh, new skin underneath. The solution used in a chemical peel contains a combination of AHAs and BHAs, which work together to exfoliate the skin and encourage cell turnover. AHAs are water-soluble and work on the surface of the skin, while BHAs are oil-soluble and penetrate deeper into the skin. This combination of acids helps to improve the texture and appearance of the skin, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and discolouration.

Before administering the treatment, our skincare professional Pharmacist conducts a thorough skin analysis to determine the patient’s skin type and specific concerns. This allows us to customize the treatment to the individual’s needs. The skin is preconditioned to enhance results and minimize complications. The solution is then applied to the skin and left on for a specific amount of time before being neutralized and removed. Post-treatment home care products may be recommended to reduce complications and maintain the results.

As with any cosmetic treatment, there are potential side effects to consider. After a chemical peel, the skin may be red, sensitive, and flaky for a few days. It is important to avoid direct sun exposure and to use high-quality sunscreen to protect the skin. Some patients may experience more severe side effects, such as scarring, infection, or hyperpigmentation, but these are rare and can usually be avoided with proper pre and post-treatment care.
