Chemical Peels

We are happy to provide Chemical Peels at Facethetics Skin Clinic, a very popular skincare procedure that exfoliates the skin’s outermost layer and encourages cellular turnover to improve skin tone, texture, and shine. Chemical peels are adaptable skincare procedures that can cure a variety of issues, such as dullness, fine wrinkles, acne, and hyperpigmentation, leaving your skin looking brighter, smoother, and younger.

What are Chemical Peels?

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), and trichloroacetic acid (TCA) are examples of exfoliating chemicals used in chemical peel skincare treatments. These agents work together to remove the top layer of skin, exposing healthier, more youthful skin beneath. These peels come in different strengths and depths, so you may have a treatment plan that works for your specific skin type and objectives. Depending on the intended results and penetration level, chemical peels can be deep, medium, or superficial.

Procedure

Our Chemical Peel procedure at Facethetics Skin Clinic is performed by experienced skincare professionals trained in advanced chemical peel techniques. Here’s what you can expect during your appointment:

1. Consultation: We’ll examine your skin type, condition, and sensitivity to select the best peel solution and treatment plan for you. Before the treatment, you’ll get a consultation with one of our skincare specialists to discuss your skincare concerns, goals, and medical history.

2. Preparation: Your skin will be properly washed to get rid of any makeup, oil, or dirt before the procedure starts. After that, a preparation solution will be applied by our skincare specialist to clean the skin and get it ready for the chemical peel.

3. Peel Application: Using a brush or cotton pad, the chemical peel solution will be carefully applied to the skin. Depending on the intensity and depth of the peel, the solution is applied to the skin for a predetermined period of time in order for the active components to reach the outermost layer of the skin and begin exfoliating it.

4. Neutralization (if applicable): Water or a neutralizing solution will be used to neutralize or remove the chemical peel solution from the skin after the predetermined length of time has passed. In order to avoid over-peeling or irritation, this step aids in stopping the exfoliation process.

5. Soothing Treatment: After a chemical peel, the skin may benefit from a calming treatment to reduce irritation and encourage skin healing, such as a cooling mask or post-peel serum.


6. Aftercare: You will receive aftercare instructions from our skincare specialist to assist reduce discomfort and encourage the best possible healing. To get the best outcomes and lower the chance of problems, it’s imperative that you carefully follow these directions.

Benefits

  • Improves Skin Texture: Chemical peels remove dirt and dead skin cells from the skin’s surface, revealing softer, smoother skin with a more refined texture.
  • Reduces Hyperpigmentation: Chemical Peels can lighten dark spots, acne scars, and sun damage by promoting cellular turnover and inhibiting melanin production, resulting in a more even skin tone.
  • Minimizes Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Chemical Peels stimulate collagen production and elastin fibers, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and restoring skin elasticity and firmness.
  • Treats Acne and Breakouts: Chemical Peels can unclog pores, reduce excess oil production, and kill acne-causing bacteria, making them an effective treatment for acne and breakouts.

Side Effects

While Chemical Peels are generally safe, some potential side effects may occur, depending on the peel’s strength and depth, including:

  • Redness and Irritation: Mild redness, tingling, or stinging sensations may occur immediately after the peel, which typically subside within a few hours to a few days.
  • Peeling and Flaking: Depending on the peel’s depth, you may experience peeling, flaking, or mild shedding of the skin in the days following the treatment, revealing fresher, healthier skin underneath.
  • Sensitivity to Sunlight: Chemical Peels can increase skin sensitivity to sunlight, making it essential to wear sunscreen and avoid prolonged sun exposure to prevent sunburn and hyperpigmentation.

Aftercare

To ensure optimal healing and maximize the results of your Chemical Peel, it’s essential to follow these aftercare guidelines:

  • Protect from Sun Exposure: Avoid direct sunlight and wear sunscreen with a high SPF to protect your skin from UV radiation, as sun exposure can increase the risk of sunburn and hyperpigmentation.
  • Moisturize and Hydrate: Keep your skin moisturized and hydrated by applying a gentle, non-comedogenic moisturizer regularly to alleviate dryness and flakiness.
  • Avoid Harsh Skincare Products: Refrain from using harsh skincare products, exfoliants, or acne treatments immediately after the peel, as they can irritate the skin and interfere with the healing process.
  • Follow Skincare Recommendations: Our skincare expert may recommend specific skincare products or treatments to complement your Chemical Peel and enhance your results. It’s essential to follow these recommendations to maintain the health and integrity of your skin.
