What Should You Know Before Getting Chemical Peels?

In the past, people were hesitant to get chemical peels because of the idea of putting chemicals directly onto their skin. However, due to the advancements in the skin industry and the many benefits in targeting different skin conditions effectively and safely, Cosmetic Grade Chemical Peels have been one of the must-have treatments to rejuvenate the skin. 

Laser Clinics UK shares more details about chemical peels and why you should get one:

How do chemical peels work?

Chemical peels are skin treatments used to repair and polish the appearance and feel of the skin. At Laser Clinics UK, we apply safe chemical solutions to the skin’s surface. Common treatment areas are the face, back, chest and decolletage.  

The chemical peel penetrates the layers of the skin and targets cells,  treating various skin concerns, including acne scarring, pigmentation, sun damage, age spots, rosacea, wrinkles and other skin discolouration. 

What are the benefits of chemical peels?

The benefits of chemical peels vary depending on the type of treatment. Laser Clinics UK offers Cosmetic Grade Peels tailored for various skin concerns:

  • Dry and Sensitive Skin - The institut AHA Enzymatic Peel & LED soothes, hydrates and micro-exfoliates dry, flaky skin, encouraging skin renewal and restoration. 
  • Skin pigmentation and congestion - The institut Peel Accelerator exfoliates and resurfaces the skin's upper layer, accelerating the skin's cell turnover rate to reduce hyperpigmentation and improve skin texture.
  • Skin Ageing - The institut Ageless Peel is an anti-ageing treatment activating your skin cells to naturally produce more collagen and elastin, reducing visible signs of ageing, including fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Unwanted skin discolouration - The Depigmenting Peel eliminates skin cells rich in melanin and prevents the darkening of new skin cells. It effectively reduces skin discolouration appearance, resulting in a more even skin tone.
  • What are the possible risks or side effects?

    Common side effects are mostly temporary, including redness, dryness, stinging, and slight swelling. However, more severe risks can result in darkening or lightening skin colour, permanent scarring, and infections. That’s why it’s always better to get chemical peels from professional and experienced therapists.
