What are Skin Peels?
A peel can be a misleading term, as most of these treatments have no visible peeling afterwards. They use more active ingredients than traditional beauty facials to stimulate changes in the skin. A peel treatment takes 30-45 minutes.
What are peels good for treating?
Everything from tone and texture which are what I like to refer to as a polish peel, through to sun damage and ageing, acne, and acne scarring.
What ingredients are used?
Common ingredients used in peels are AHA fruit acids, enzymes, salicylic acid and Vitamin A (In much higher strengths than what are in home care products). Many peel treatments combine ingredients.
How many treatments are needed to get results?
Although results are noticeable after 1 peel, a course of 4-6, depending on which peel is recommended, achieves the ultimate improvement. Many patients chose to have a regular monthly treatment instead of beauty facials.
What is the downtime?
Some have no down time, some a little bit of flaking or peeling for 3- 5 days and you may look a bit flushed immediately afterwards, as if you have just had a workout.
