Chemical skin peels FAQ
What conditions are chemical peels used to treat?
They are used to treat a wide range of skin conditions, including wrinkles, scarring, discolouration, acne and sun damage.
How is a chemical skin peel performed?
First the skin is vigorously cleaned. Then the appropriate chemical is the applied to the skin for the amount of time required to yield the best results.
How long does a skin peel take?
Skin peels are generally a quick procedure and often can be performed in a matter of minutes, although this depends on the size of the area that is being treated. Typically the non-invasive skin peel is complete in just 30 minutes. This means you can return to your busy schedule straight after leaving our office.
What is the most popular type of skin peel?
Glycolic acid is the most popular type of chemical peel. This is because it is effective on all skin types. Salicylic acid is another popular chemical peel and is used to treat oily skin as well as breakouts.
Are chemical peels painful?
Most skin peels are only mildly painful, with a brief burning sensation whilst the peel is applied. This subsides very quickly though and more serious side effects are very rare.
How long do the results last?
This depends on how deep the peel is and how well you take care of your skin afterwards. With proper skin care, i.e. staying out of the sun and keeping your skin hydrated, results can last months and even years in some cases.
How many chemical peels will I need?
Usually, the desired results can be achieved in less than 5 peels. After this, you can have regular maintenance peels once a month if so desired.
Are there any risks related to chemical peels?
Superficial peels are generally very safe, although some mild stinging and discomfort may occur. For very deep peels, risks include infection, redness, scarring and discolouration. It should be pointed out though that these risks are not commonplace.
What is the recovery time?
The recovery time will depend on the depth of the peel. For light peels, it takes about 3-5 days for the shedding process to complete. For medium peels it takes 5-7 days. For deep peels, the recovery time can be several weeks.
