Chemical Peel Treatment – Peel Away Your Skin’s Imperfections

Image 3

AN ENDURING HUMAN DESIRE HAS BEEN TO STOP THE AGING PROCESS. A chemical peel involves the use of an acid solution to remove scarred or damaged outer skin layers. It is mainly used as a facial peel. Typical solutions applied are Glycolic (alpha hydroxyl) acid and TCA (trichloroacetic acid). Contrary to what many people think chemical peeling is a less invasive method and one of the oldest cosmetic treatments in the world. It is highly effective in eliminating facial wrinkles, age spots, blemishes, freckles, skin pigmentation, to lighten the skin tone and exfoliating dead skin. After all the quality of our skin determines our appearance.

Frequenlty Asked Questions

WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?

It is a cosmetic procedure that uses non toxic chemical solutions to improve skin condition. It removes the dead skin cell layer and energizes cell renewal leading to fresher and brighter skin texture.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR A CHEMICAL PEEL PROCEDURE?

Chemical peels are very safe procedures with fairly predictable outcomes. They are suitable for any skin type from Type 1-Type VI. However it is always best to seek a proper consultation and choose a procedure that is likely to work best for the current condition of your skin, and health history.

WHO SHOULD NOT TAKE CHEMICAL PEEL TREATMENT?

You should not seek chemical peel treatment if you have very dark skin tone, pregnant, are suffering from cold sores, sagging skin, severe wrinkles, are allergic to aspirin or salicylates, have dormant eczema, or are using Retin-A or Accutane.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM A CHEMICAL PEEL CONSULTATION AT METAMORPHOSIS?

A personal consultation is the first step for everyone considering a chemical peel treatment. During this consultation, our skin specialist will evaluate your skin type; discuss your specific cosmetic goals, and assess the health of your skin. This would include checking the severity of any sun damage, uneven pigmentation and surface imperfections. For first-timers, we would be doing a patch test behind your ear or neck to check for any sensitivity.

WHY DO PEOPLE SAY ITS IMPORTANT TO START A CHEMICAL PEEL SOON?

Our skin naturally sheds dead skin cells every 4 weeks and replaces them with new healthier cells. However, as we age this cell turnover slows down considerably. A chemical peel encourages skin cell turnover.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A PEEL PROCEDURE?

The procedure involves applying a solution to the desired area, this solution exfoliates the skin and speeds up natural skin renewal.

HOW LONG DOES A CHEMICAL PEEL TREATMENT TAKE?

It usually takes only about a few minutes, it will also depend upon the response given by your face.

WHAT DOES A CHEMICAL PEEL TREAT?

Chemical peels are effective in treating acne, age spots, uneven skin tone, to lighten the skin, photodamaged skin, scars, softening deeper lines, dark patches, freckles.

IS THE CHEMICAL PEEL PROCEDURE PAINFUL?

No, however, you may experience a hot itchy, flushy sensation once we apply the solution. This subsides in a few minutes.

WILL MY SKIN ACTUALLY PEEL OFF?

Yes, for deeper peels you may experience peeling of the skin. In superficial peels, you will rarely experience any visible peeling. In medium depth peels you may or may not experience visible peeling.

WHAT AREAS ARE FREQUENTLY TREATED BY A CHEMICAL PEEL?

A chemical peel is usually done on the face, neck, upper back and hands.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU GET A CHEMICAL PEEL DONE?

Superficial peels can be repeated every 2/3 weeks. Medium depth peels can be repeated once in 2-3 months. Deep peels can be done once in 6-12 months.

HOW IS A CHEMICAL PEEL DIFFERENT FROM MICRODERMABRASION?

Microdermabrasion is a physical exfoliating process with the skin cells being mechanically sloughed away. Chemical peels are a chemical-based exfoliating process. Microdermabrasion is less invasive than a chemical peel.

WHAT ARE THE POST PEEL INSTRUCTIONS?

• APPLYING SUNSCREEN AND MOISTURISER IS A MUST.
• IF YOU KNOW YOU WILL GET INCIDENTAL SUN EXPOSURE (DRIVING TO AND FROM WORK, WALKING FROM YOUR CAR TO THE HOUSE ETC), WE RECOMMEND PHYSICAL AVOIDANCE OF THE SUN IN ALL TREATED AREAS WITH A PROTECTIVE HAT AND A FULL SPECTRUM SUN BLOCK OF SPF 50.
• YOU NEED TO AVOID SWEATING, EXERCISING, HOT BATHS, HOT SHOWERS, SAUNA, SWIMMING UNTIL YOUR SKIN TOTALLY HEALS.

• UNLESS RECOMMENDED BY US, DO NOT APPLY TOPICAL MEDICATIONS ON THE AREA WHERE PEELING WAS DONE 3-5 DAYS AFTER YOUR TREATMENT.
