Chemical peels are still a popular option for skin rejuvenation, owing to their effectiveness. Sophie Pearce performs chemical peels on people in and around West Yorkshire, Leeds, and Wakefield and people in nearby communities to restore an even skin tone and smooth complexion.
WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?
A chemical peel is a procedure in which a solution of varying concentrations is applied to the entire face or to specific areas of the face, such as around the mouth, to remove the top layers of skin and restore a smooth complexion. Common chemical peels include the Million-Dollar Facial, Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Beta, Vitality Institute Peel (VIP), Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA), and Skin Specialists. Leeds Dermatology and Laser Institute’s expert board-certified dermatologists recommend a variety of Million Dollar peels for optimal skin benefits.
WHY SHOULD YOU USE A CHEMICAL PEEL?
Chemical peels are one of the least invasive skin treatments and are critical for maintaining and restoring the skin’s health and appearance. They treat a variety of skin conditions, including acne, sun damage, pigmentation, and uneven, rough texture and tone.
A series of chemical peels may be recommended by a Chemical Peel specialist like Sophie to stimulate collagen production and reduce photoaging signs such as fine lines and wrinkles. By exfoliating dead surface cells and smoothing and softening the skin’s surface, peels can also help to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dullness.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF A CHEMICAL PEEL?
Chemical peels are typically classified as light, medium, or deep. The type of peel used is determined by the skin’s condition and the desired result. Overall, a chemical solution is applied to the facial skin and left to gently remove the outer layers of the skin. Following the treatment, the solution is washed off the face and a neutraliser is applied to soothe the skin. The chemical Peel Facial treatment is then completed.
A Chemical peel is frequently combined with other skin resurfacing procedures such as light therapies and laser resurfacing to maximise the rejuvenating effects. They are also an ideal complement to the selection of at-home skincare products available at our Wakefield Chemical Peel Clinic.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER A CHEMICAL PEEL?
As the dead skin sloughs away, you may experience some light flaking or peeling after your chemical peel. There may be some redness, similar to a sunburn, depending on the level of peel used. It is critical to avoid direct sunlight on your face while the new skin fills in. With the stronger chemical peels, this may take a little longer. When the process is completed, the results are understated but stunning.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A CHEMICAL PEEL?
If you have uneven skin tone on your face or want to restore a smooth complexion, a chemical peel may be right for you. Chemical Peel Skin Specialist recommend that you consult with a board-certified dermatologist to evaluate your skin and determine the best treatment option for you.
