Chemical Peels Sydney

There are a number of factors that affect the appearance of your skin, including the environment, lifestyle habits and general ageing. To improve the texture and overall appearance of the skin, peels remove the upper layer in order to get rid of dead and damaged skin cells.

What exactly is Skin Peels?

There are a number of factors that affect the appearance of your skin, including the environment, lifestyle habits and general ageing. To improve the texture and overall appearance of the skin, peels remove the upper layer in order to get rid of dead and damaged skin cells.

As the chemicals in the peel get to work on the skin, it gradually peels off the upper layer, which activates the skin’s healing process and reveals a fresh, rejuvenated layer of skin. Skin peels are available in light to medium strengths, which can be used to treat a variety of concerns, including general discolouration, wrinkles, sun damage, scaly patches and acne.


What to Expect During a Skin Peel

Once it has been determined that your skin would benefit from a skin peel, your skin will be prepped and a peel will be selected based on your specific needs.
The average skin peel procedure doesn’t take longer than 15 minutes and patients are free to return to work following their treatment. However, some patients do choose to go home afterwards depending on the type of peel they have selected.

Once the peel has been applied to your skin, it will be left to take effect for several minutes. Once the peel has been removed, the top layer of skin cells may start to flake depending on the type of peel that was used. Skin peels do create a mild tingling or burning sensation but overall, treatments are not painful.

These are the types of skin peels that we currently offer:

  • Blueberry smoothie and enzyme peel for glowing, hydrated skin
  • Milk peel for silky smooth and shiny skin
  • Enzymatic peel for first time peel patients who are worried about skin sensitivity
  • Lactic peel for hydration and anti-ageing (Slight flaking could occur)
  • Mask or salicylic peel to banish acne (Slight flaking could occur)
  • TCA cosmo peel to exfoliate and refresh the skin as well as lighten pigmentation (Skin will flake)
  • Mela peel and Mela peel forte for treating hormonal pigmentation such as melasma (Skin will flake)
  • Doctor-strength TCA peel for treating fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation (7 – 10 Days of downtime is recommended)

You will need to care for your skin very carefully following your peel to protect the fresh new layer from getting damaged.

*All peels are completely safe but preparing the skin one month prior to the peel is recommended

Skin Peels: What Patients Need to Know

  • Fair-skinned patients are better candidates. People with fair skin and light hair tend to benefit more from skin peels. Patients with darker skin can still receive skin peels but uneven skin tone is more likely
  • One skin peel may be enough to achieve healthier skin. The number of peels that will be required will depend on the severity of the damage. Most patients can expect an 80% improvement after just one peel if they opt for the Doctor-Strength TCA peel. For all other peels, 3 – 6 treatments will be required
  • Mild redness and swelling can be expected. Most patients can expect mild redness, discomfort and swelling for several days after their skin peel, which is why you may want to spend a day or two at home following your procedure
  • Results will be visible after a week. Once the skin has healed and all of the old skin has peeled off, patients will clearly be able to see the results of their peel
