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.
It’s important to remember that every individual is unique and so too are their needs and desired outcomes for cosmetic surgery.

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.
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 safe but preparing the skin one month prior to the peel is recommended.
