A chemical peel is also known as chemical exfoliation. It is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, décolleté or hands. 

Peels vary in strength and therefore the number of treatments needed to deliver optimal results and the associated downtime of the treatment, will depend on the strength of the peel and the acid used.

A chemical peel is a topical solution applied to the skin to soften the dead skin layer and exfoliate the skin. Once those dead and damaged skin cells peel away a clearer, smoother and more youthful appearance is restored.  Dependent on the peel solution being used and the clients skin type, peels can be used to treat the following:

  • Fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
  • Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging
  • Treat certain types of acne 
  • Reduce the appearance of age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma) 
  • Improve the appearance of dull skin that will appear more radiant and rejuvenated post peel. Rough or uneven skin will become smoother

Glo Skin Beauty skin peels work superficially within the skin producing minimal downtime.

BEFORE YOU GET A CHEMICAL PEEL

Dependent on your skin type, concern and peel formulation your practitioner may recommend pre-treatment with specific products. If this is the case, it is important to follow your practitioners instructions to ensure sufficient pre-treatment preparation has been carried out prior to your procedure.

THE TREATMENT

The peel solution will be applied to the skin. Your practitioner will monitor your individual response to the treatment and this will determine the length of your treatment based on your level of comfort and key skin responses to the peel solution.

During your peel you may experience slight discomfort which may include stinging, burning, itching, tingling or a heat-like sensation.

After the prescribed application time the peel solution may be chemically neutralised to end the treatment although not all solutions require neutralising.

AFTER CHEMICAL PEEL

Initially your skin may be red and feel sensitive. Some patients experience stinging, burning, itching, mild pain or discomfort, tightness. These are all normal and expected results. It is important to remember that unlike other peels, you do not have to see visible flaking or peeling of the skin to achieve desired results. You may notice that your skin feels rough over the next couple of days due to enhanced exfoliation/light peeling. Many people experience fresh, clean glowing skin post peel, and the short term results are a bonus as the aim of the peel treatments is long term skin health through a course of treatments and home care.

The expected duration of ‘downtime’ is given as guidance only and it is worth noting that the skins response to chemical peeling may vary from client to client. Although the anticipated downtime for superficial peels is considered to be 1 – 3 days, in exceptional circumstances, clients may experience peeling for several days or even weeks afterwards. This will be discussed with you in more detail at your consultation. 

HOMECARE ADVICE

After a chemical peel the skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sunlight and other sources of UV light (tanning beds etc.), so it is recommended to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen every day.

Your practitioner will recommend products for your post-treatment care.

Textural smoothening and improvements with acne prone skin can occur with 1 to 3 peels. Deeper textural changes require multiple peels. Noticeable improvements usually occurs following 3 to 6 peels.The most severe skin issues can take longer to improve. Results are best achieved in a series of treatments and may be combined with other types of aesthetic treatments to get the best possible outcome for your skin.
