Just about everyone can benefit from a chemical skin peel treatment from FACEmed's facial aesthetics clinic in Essex. The main benefit of a skin peel treatment is its effectiveness in removing the dead skin cells that stubbornly cling to the skin’s outer layer, the stratum corneum. This accelerates the cell renewal process, stimulates collagen synthesis and improves elastin fibres in the skin. Where are Skin Peels used.
On the face a chemical skin peel treatment helps improve many skin conditions such as melasma, uneven skin texture, brown spots, acne, Rosacea, hyperpigmentation, superficial scars and wrinkling. Just like the face, the hands, neck and chest can also be treated, as these areas are often exposed to the sun and are therefore susceptible to damage. Treatment is also recommended sometimes as part of a comprehensive treatment plan i.e. in combination with Microdermabrasion , Professional Skincare or Restylane Vital® .
Different types of skin peels, differing in their intensities are used at FACEmed's Essex skin clinic:
These are the lighter milder peels and are the most commonly used. Superficial skin peel treatment removes the outer layer of cells, lightly exfoliating the skin to give you a healthy glow. We customise our peels to patient’s needs. The usual combinations are of alphahydroxy acids (AHAs) and betahydroxy acids (BHAs) eg glycolic acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid and mandelic acid.
This type of peel penetrates further into the skin.
OBAGI Blue skin peel treatments usually contain trichloroacetic acid (TCA). This treatment it is used to fight the most noticeable signs of photo ageing, such as lines and dry, uneven skin colour tone. The TCA Skin Peel can also be used to treat acne and acne scarring, and areas on the hands, forearms and neck.
