Chemical Peels: A Way to Rejuvenate Your SkinFebruary 28, 2018 / byHealthier Societies / Categories : Health
Chemical peels are a popular way to banish blemishes, scars, and acne to enjoy clear, softer skin and a younger-looking complexion. They can treat unwanted freckles and UV damage in just a few dermatologist visits.
A chemical peel involves putting a chemical solution on the skin. This causes the top layer of skin to blister and gradually peel off. The new skin underneath is fresh and free of spots, freckles or sun damage. Peels are used most commonly on the face to give a younger, healthy complexion.
You can also use it on the neck, hands, chest or back. One to ten treatments are usually required to achieve the full benefit, depending on the type of peel used.
The cost of chemical peel in London will set the client back by up to £2,000, but mild chemical peels are cheaper and start for as little as £60. Prices vary according to the area.
Chemical peels are an anti-ageing remedy used for:
- Minor wrinkles around the eyes and mouth
- UV damage
- Minor scars caused
- Age spots and freckles
- Skin discolouration
A cosmetic specialist will brush a solution onto the area of skin they will treat. This might cause a mild stinging sensation.
Depending on the type of peel, you may use a neutralising agent after treatment to clean it off the skin. Sometimes, dermatologists use cold compresses to make the experience more comfortable.
Treated skin will be sensitive to the sun, so sunscreen is advisable while it is healing. For those who have had a medium or deep peel involving more layers of skin, they should avoid the sun should during recovery. The effects of the sun can reverse the effects of a chemical peel.
Chemical peels reduce wrinkles, scarring, and unsightly spots by removing layers of skin and fast-tracking the growth of new more youthful skin. Its affordable starting cost makes it a popular anti-ageing treatment.
