Am I suitable for a chemical peel?
Chemical peels are suitable for both men and women. Younger patients will often have a chemical peel to address mild to moderate acne, while older patients will typically want to target wrinkles and uneven skin tone.
Chemical peels can be used to treat the following issues:
How do chemical peels work?
A chemical peel works by removing the top layer of the skin (epidermis), stimulating the dermis to promote cell renewal.
Peels are usually carried out in a series to ‘train’ the dermis to create tighter cells, giving the skin a smoother look.
Are chemical peels painful?
The acids used are Glycolic, lactic or fruit acids, so pain is relatively mild.
You may experience a mild tingling or itchy sensation when the acid is applied to the skin, which will cause redness, irritation and crusting but as the skin begins to adjust all these problems will lessen.

What does the procedure involve?
A chemical solution is applied to the skin, which causes the skin to exfoliate, leaving smoother and less wrinkled skin.
The new skin is more sensitive to the sun, so it is important to keep applying sunscreen to the treated area until it has fully healed.
