Chemical Peels offer multiple benefits that include lightening signs of blemishes, uneven pigmentation, discolouration, and mild scars, resulting in clearer, brighter, and smoother skin. The treatment shows the best results ideally after multiple sittings. Peels provide a combination of mechanical and chemical exfoliation that is more effective than exfoliating face washes. Our aestheticians highly recommend the Cosmelan and Meline specialised peels which provide long term noticeable results.
You first meet the doctor to evaluate skin type, complexion, texture and to discuss skin issues and concerns along with your history (including medical history). This is done in order to ascertain the course of treatment.
During the Chemical Peel session, the treatment area is first cleaned with a cleanser.
The peeling agent is applied using a brush.
The peeling agent is left on for anywhere between 3 to 5 minutes depending of the nature of the peeling agent used and the desired effect needed.
The peel is neutralised using a neutralising agent.
Each Chemical Peel session ends with the application of an ice cube to cool down the skin, followed by a hydrating cream and sunscreen/sunblock.
A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure where a chemical solution is applied to remove the top layer of the skin. The skin that grows back is smoother and healthier. There are three levels for this treatment – a light chemical peel, a medium chemical peel, and a deep chemical peel.
A chemical peel is beneficial in many ways as it gives you clearer, brighter and smoother skin. It fixes blemishes, smooths uneven pigmentation and discolouration and gets rid of scars. It also helps reduce acne and smoothes out fine wrinkles.
Chemical peel treatment is great for your skin as it helps you shed damaged skin and grow a healthier layer of skin. It takes away blemishes, uneven pigmentation, discolouration and acne. Additionally, it can also fix fine wrinkles and get rid of scars leaving you with younger-looking skin.
We take extra care to ensure a safe chemical peel experience for all our clients. Our doctors will first assess your skin to make sure it is compatible with the treatment. Additionally, a patch test will be conducted before the treatment to make sure that there are no adverse reactions.
Chemical peel treatment can be used to get rid of tan. It removes a superficial layer of tanned skin that has excess melanin and allows your true complexion to shine through.
Since chemical peels exfoliate and get rid of dead skin, they also clear up clogging in the hair follicles. Because of this, pimples can be reduced. Chemical peels can also be used to treat acne scars.
Do not use any skin products right after a chemical peel. It is advisable to go for a moisturizing facial after your skin has healed as peels do dry your skin to some extent. You can use a neutral moisturizer at home. Spread it thinly and do not rub it into your skin.
Chemical peel treatment longevity depends on the depth of the peel. A light peel will last for 1-2 months, a medium peel can last for 3-6 months and a deep peel will have effects that last much longer.
This also depends on the depth of the chemical peel. Light peels can be done once every month, medium peels can be done once every 4-6 months and deep peels should be done only after a gap of a few years.
You will notice some burning, redness or tingling sensation in the first few hours after treatment. After a few days, you will start to see the upper layer of your skin peeling or flaking away. Remove it gently and do not pull at your skin. Our beauticians will give you a list of things to avoid while your skin heals. Follow the instructions given carefully for best results.
Do not use any makeup for 2 weeks after the procedure. Your skin will be extra sensitive right after the procedure and makeup products contain chemicals that can harm it and hamper the healing process.
While there are at-home chemical peel products available, it is not advisable to attempt it at home as you need to be very careful with the procedure. Everybody has a different skin type and the treatment works best when it is customized to your skin type. Leave it to the trained professionals to assess your skin and carry out the treatment based on their assessment.
You may start to see results after one peel but the desired effect will only be obtained after the required number of sessions are complete.
Before the Chemical Peel treatment, a patch test is recommended to assess your reaction to the peeling agent.
Wear the protective eyewear provided by the aesthetician during the length of the Chemical Peel service.
Avoid waxing or depilatories for 48 hours before treatment and for seven days after the Chemical Peel treatment.
Do not use exfoliating scrubs, or products that contain glycolic acid or benzoyl peroxide for atleast 24 hours before and after the Chemical Peel treatment.
You will have a recuperation period after going for a peeling service. The length of the recuperation period depends upon the depth of the peel and the quality of home care. Deep peels can take longer to heal.
Avoid sun exposure while the skin heals. Use a good broad spectrum sunscreen/sunblock and preferably wear a hat when stepping out. Consistent use of the sunscreen will help maintain the benefit of the peel.
Avoid using drying or irritating agents while the skin heals.
Do not peel, pull, pick or scratch the treated skin as this can lead to permanent scarring.
Avoid exercise for 24 hours to prevent further irritation due to heat and exertion.
It is always advisable to go for a moisturising facial post peeling (after the skin has healed) to keep your skin hydrated as peels do dry your skin to an extent. (consult with our doctors to build your Peel & Facial package).
