SUPERFICIAL SKIN PEELS
WHAT ARE SUPERFICIAL SKIN PEELS?
Chemical Peels are classified according to strength, with Superficial Peels being the mildest form, so gentle it’s often called, “the lunchtime peel.” The most common peeling agents in Superficial Peels are Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid, and more gentle ones are based with simple fruit enzymes. These peeling agents are blended with other mild potions to create a liquid or paste formula that is applied to the skin for a duration of time long enough to penetrate only the epidermis. This process breaks down the binding elements of the skin’s top layer, causing dead skin cells to shed off to reveal the fresh, healthy underlying skin.
Chemical Peels are tailored per patient. Superficial Peels are also used to prepare the skin for deeper peels or to enhance the efficacy of other more invasive procedures that treat severe conditions like cystic acne, melasma, photodamage, dyschromias, and actinic keratoses.
A consultation is required for every new patient.
Freshening up dull, tired and worn out looking ‘city skin’. Suitable for all skin types including sensitive. A course of six is recommend for maximum visible results, once a week for six weeks and then once a month for maintenance.
Lactic acid peels are best for people who have very sensitive skin that might not be able to tolerate the slightly more intense glycolic acid peels. Although lactic acid peels are gentler, they usually provide many of the same benefits as the other peels, but in a less intense version.
