Do you want to have smooth, healthy, glowing skin? If you’re looking for a safe, effective way to treat acne scars, reduce fine lines, treat wrinkles and improve the overall look of your skin, Chemical peel is one of the best treatments for it. Chemical peels are used to remove dead skin cells and improve the appearance of your skin. They also reduce fine lines and wrinkles and make your skin feel smooth and new. There are many different types of chemical peels, but most involve using an acid or an alcohol solution to peel away the outer layers of the skin. We offer this service in our clinic and ensure that you get the best results possible.
The benefits of a chemical peel include:
• Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
• Improves the look of skin texture
• Makes your skin glow
• Eliminates acne scars
• Reduces the visibility of brown spots
• Removes dead skin cells
Chemical peels are quick and easy procedures that require minimal downtime. You should use gentle products for the first five days, then avoid sun exposure for up to thirty days. Keep your skincare routine as simple and gentle as possible. Don’t apply too much product, and try to limit the number of steps in your routine.
Our cosmetic clinic offers different chemical peel options. Each treatment helps patients achieve the best possible results.

To find out if a chemical peeling is right for you, you should book a consultation with one of our qualified medical aesthetics. This will give them an opportunity to review your medical background and actually see what it’s you are concerned about in making informed recommendations as to the most effective course of treatment.
Peels do not hurt when they are performed correctly. Your technician will apply numbing cream before applying the peel. During the application, you may feel warmth, itching, or stinging. Once the peel has been applied, you may feel some discomfort, but it should only last a few minutes.
You should expect 3-6 treatments, spaced 2 weeks to a month apart, if you’re looking for a healthy glow. For more aggressive problems you’ll need to schedule more appointments, less frequently, allowing your skin to heal between sessions. After that you may require maintenance treatments every once in a while to maintain results.
Depending on the size of the area being treated, a single session may last anywhere from 10 minutes to over an hour.
Chemical peels are popular because they’re quick and easy! Patients usually feel fine to resume regular activities right away. However, if you have sensitive skin, there might be some redness and irritation that goes away within 12-24 hours. You can alleviate this by using a cold compress or applying gentle makeup. After 12 hours, use gentle makeup to minimize any remaining redness.
You should see immediate improvements following your treatments. Best results usually start showing about a week later. Results are semi-permanent, lasting up to a year. Touch-ups are recommended every now and then to maintain results.
Chemical peels are completely safe if performed correctly. You should tell us about any previous problems with scars, such as those caused by acne or sunburns. It may cause minor infections or scarring. Follow up with us if you experience any unusual symptoms.
After a chemical peel, you may have slight redness, swelling, and/or mild irritation for up to 24 hours. You may need to wear makeup for several days following the treatment. You may resume normal activities immediately following your treatment.
Downtime, side effects and risks all depend on what kind of peel you get and how deep it goes. You may experience some redness, flaking or even blistering. We will talk about the best treatment plan for you and your skin type.
Chemical peels work by removing the top layers of skin. You might feel some discomfort during the procedure, but this usually goes away quickly. Your skin should start looking better within a few days.
We recommend a week prior to a chemical peel, no use of retinoic acid products, exfoliating acid, scrubs, sun exposures, tweezing, shaving, waxing, depilation or prescription creams. Regular skincare routines may resume two weeks after chemical peel treatment.
