After a long winter it’s far too easy for our skin to look tired and dull. It can be a real hardship trying to replenish your skin at this time of year, and can leave many of us feeling extremely frustrated. But this frustration can be a thing of the past with the help of chemical peel treatment at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic.
What is chemical peel treatment?
Chemical peel treatment is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that aims to improve the look of dull and tired looking skin, by removing the top layer of skin to reveal the more youthful and healthy looking skin that lies underneath.
How does chemical peel treatment work?
Chemical peel treatment involves applying a thin layer of chemical solution, including various forms of acid, to the skin to peel away the top layer of skin a controlled way.
Chemical peel treatment comes in three different strengths to tackle different levels of imperfections. The three levels are superficial, medium and deep. Which strength of peel is right for you will be discussed during your consultation and will depend on your skins condition and the level of results you wish to achieve.
What are the benefits?
There are many benefits to chemical peel treatment. One of these is that chemical peel treatment gives patients a way to rejuvenate the look of their skin without the need to undergo cosmetic surgery. This is a huge positive for many patients as it means they can gain the results they want, without the need to put their body under additional risk.
Chemical peel treatment can also help improve the look of ageing factors in the skin, such as lines and wrinkles. Many patients report a visible improvement in the look and feel of wrinkles in their skin, which helps to promote a more youthful appearance to the skin as a whole.
What are the risks?
When considering a cosmetic treatment, it’s important to look at the procedure as a whole. This means also understanding the risks involved with treatment as well as the benefits. The risks involved with chemical peel treatment include possible scarring, hyperpigmentation in areas of the skin and the loss of pigmentation. These risk are extremely rare to encounter but should still be carefully considered before making the decision to undergo treatment.
