Chemical Peels

Chemical peels work well for both men and women, at any age and are the ideal treatment for

anyone who wants to restore a more youthful, healthy glow to their skin.

Everything from sun exposure and aging to acne and clogged pores can leave you with uneven skin

tone, fine lines, scarring and a lacklustre complexion. If you want your skin to look smoother,

younger and most importantly, vibrant, a chemical peel can make a significant difference. These

increase cell turnover, improve hyperpigmentation and help improve melasma, a really tough

problem to fix.


 

 

 

 

Easy Phytic Skin Peel

The ideal lunch time pick me up skin peel.

This is a superficial strength peel. This means that it only takes the surface layer of skin away. This peel promotes a slow release of the medication for continuous penetration of the skin. This is ideal for people who do not want to peel. The peel works as an exfoliation technique, promoting stimulation of healthy skin without the obvious signs of exfoliation.

The peel acts as a deep exfoliate eliminating the surface layer of skin that has been damaged by many different factors such as sun exposure, wind, pollution or smoking

Acne is an ever growing problem with fatty foods and sugary drinks being the main catalyst. This peel is ideal for tackling the problem of acne that normal face washes and cleansing regimes cannot deal with. The peel is especially popular for teenage acne. As the peel only takes the top layer of skin away it unblocks the skin that is affected by acne and effectively helps the acne to improve.

Indications:

Early photo aging, dry skin, superficial melasma, teenagers’ skin problems.

TRICHLOROACETIC ACID (TCA) PEELS

Trichloracetic acid (TCA) peels are considered medium-depth peels. They reach slightlydeeper into the skin than alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) peels–and thus often produce stronger results.

 

These peels also have the advantage of being suitable for most skin types, including darker-toned skin. To avoid discoloration, however, people with dark brown skin need to follow a pre-treatment protocol that may include treating the skin with alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) first. (Your physician will explain this process to you during your consultation.)

The Treatment

TCA peels generally takes 15 to 30 minutes. The exact length of treatment will depend on how many “coats” of the acid are applied to your skin. First, your skin will be cleansed and degreased. Then the acid will be applied. As soon as the acid has reached the intended depth, your physician will apply a neutralizing solution.

 You’ll experience a slight stinging sensation during the 2 to 3 minutes the solution remains on your skin. Your physician may use ice water or a fan to reduce any discomfort. If a high concentration of acid is being used, you may also be given a medication for pain or anxiety

Indications:

Photo ageing and its consequences, acne and post acne pigmentation problems (melasma, chloasma, postinflamatory hyperpigmentation) ichtyosis, keratoses and letigines.
