A chemical peel is solution applied to the face to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of new cells. The aim is to improve the appearance of the skin – for example, by reducing age spots and evening out skin tone. There are 3 types of peels, called superficial, medium and deep.
Superficial and medium peels are safe, as long as they’re administered by a trained professional. These type of peels are semi-permanent and for best results will be repeated regularly. Deeper peels have more permanent results and must be administered by a trained professional.
Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun as it heals, so you need to use sunscreen for at least a month after treatment. We can give you advice about how to reduce your risk of getting side effects and complications.
