Deep CHEMICAL PEEL IN SHREWSBURY
One of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic techniques is a chemical peel. These can really help give a boost to the skin of the face, hands and neck to rejuvenate and improve texture. They can also be very effective in treating acne and acne scarring.
Our specialist peels are designed to be quick and easy without the downtime associated with other peels and more invasive techniques. Suitable for all skin types, our peels will help your skin look smoother and brighter with an overall improvement in the texture and appearance of your skin.
Chemical peels work by applying a chemical solution to the surface of the skin to carefully remove its outer layers. The chemical solution causes the top layers of the skin to gently peel off, making way for new, healthy skin to shine through.
TYPES OF CHEMICAL PEELS
Chemical Peels can be classified as either superficial peels or medium depth peels depending on the chemical solution applied to the skin surface. They both remove the outer layers of the skin, but do so to variable depths. Our team of experienced medical skin experts, led by our Consultant Dermatologist, will advise on which type of chemical peel would benefit you most, as well as how many peels you would require, which is dependent upon the condition you are being treated for. No matter how deep the peel, your skin will re-grow and should heal fully. If you choose to have a deeper peel – maybe to get rid of wrinkles or acne scars – when the skin re-grows, it will not “remember” the blemishes that were there before. As the new skin develops, a new band of collagen in the dermis will grow along with a thicker epidermis. Hence, your skin will appear smoother and more perfect than before the treatment. The deeper the peel, the greater potential for improvement to the skin. However, the risks of side effects are greater with deeper peels.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Following your chemical peel it is important to not pull or pick at your skin as it can interrupt the skins natural healing cycle and you are more likely to get an infection. Be gentle with your skin and treat it with care, using sensitive products on your skin. Continue to moisturise your skin as normal, ensuring you are using an SPF sun protection daily and avoiding direct sun light where possible. It is also important to drink lots of water and stay hydrated.
Treated areas will take around seven to 14 days to heal following a medium depth chemical peel. Deeper chemical peels may take slightly longer.
