Chemical Peels – What do they treat?
Chemical Peel Treatment
This is a non-invasive type of cosmetic procedure that is used to treat a variety of skin issues. The two main types of peel are the superficial peel and the medium to deep peel, which vary in strength in order to tackle different problems of varying severities.
The Chemical Peel works by applying the solution (usually a trichloroacetic acid) to cleansed skin in order to remove layers of damaged skin and restore a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Wrinkles are reduced as an overall smoother texture is achieved. As well as the signs of premature ageing, skin peels are used to treat problems such as acne, sun damage, scarring, pigmentation and blemishing.
Do Chemical Peels Hurt?
In general, this is a fairly straightforward procedure with minimal pain and discomfort. The peel solution may cause your face to swell as well as triggering a slight burning and stinging sensation.
This should only usually last up to an hour after your treatment. As with any cosmetic procedure, there is always the risk of side effects. However, this risk is greatly minimised so long as you consult with and seek treatment from a highly reputable clinic.
