About Chemical Peels

Revelation of Radiance

At Nova Clinic, chemical peels are a revelation in skincare. Utilizing a potent blend of naturally derived acids and active ingredients, our peels deeply exfoliate, stimulate collagen production, and promote new cell growth. The result? A complexion that’s not just radiant but visibly rejuvenated and younger-looking.

How Do Our Chemical Peels Work?

Our carefully curated peels leverage the exfoliating power of specific acids to remove the outermost layer of dead skin, revealing the smoother, healthier skin beneath. This process accelerates cell turnover and boosts collagen and elastin production, effectively diminishing fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. The targeted application of our chemical solutions also addresses various skin concerns, including pigmentation, acne, and sun damage, transforming and correcting your skin.

FAQ

About Chemical Peels

What are the main benefits of chemical peels and how do they improve overall skin appearance?

Chemical peels are cosmetic procedures designed to improve the skin’s overall appearance by removing the outermost layers of the skin. They address a wide range of skin concerns, including uneven skin tone, acne scarring, age spots, and mild scars, resulting in a smoother, more even skin texture and tone. Chemical peels come in various strengths and types, including light chemical peels, medium chemical peels, and deep chemical peels, offering different levels of treatment intensity and results. Light peels, or superficial peels, use milder acids like glycolic acid or salicylic acid, making them suitable for all skin types, including darker skin. These peels provide gentle exfoliation and skin rejuvenation with minimal downtime, making them ideal for those new to chemical peels or looking for a quick skin refresh. Medium chemical peels use stronger acids, penetrating deeper into the skin to target moderate skin concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and moderate sun damage. They require a slightly longer recovery time but can yield more dramatic results than superficial peels. Deep chemical peels involve the use of potent chemical solutions like phenol that reach the deeper layers of the skin. These peels are designed to treat severe skin issues such as deep acne scarring, significant sun damage, and advanced signs of ageing. Due to their intensity, deep chemical peels require a longer healing time.

How do different types of chemical peels (superficial, medium, and deep) vary in terms of treatment intensity and results?

Chemical peels can be broadly categorised into three main types: light peels, medium peels, and deep peels. Light peels, also known as superficial peels, utilise milder acids like glycolic acid, lactic acid, or salicylic acid to provide gentle exfoliation and skin rejuvenation. These peels only affect the outermost layers of the skin, making them safe for all skin types, including darker skin tones. The recovery time for light peels is minimal, with mild redness and flaking lasting just a few days. Clients can usually return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. Medium chemical peels, on the other hand, use stronger acids like trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to penetrate deeper into the skin. These peels target moderate skin concerns such as uneven skin tone, acne, and moderate sun damage. The recovery period for medium chemical peels is longer than that of light peels, with more significant redness, swelling, and peeling lasting for 1-2 weeks. Deep chemical peels involve the use of potent chemical solutions like phenol or high concentrations of TCA that reach the deeper layers of the skin. These peels are designed to treat severe skin issues like deep acne scarring, significant sun damage, and advanced signs of ageing. Due to their intensity, deep chemical peels require the most extensive healing time, with some swelling, crusting, and peeling for 2-4 weeks.

Are chemical peels suitable for all skin types and what factors should be considered before undergoing a peel?

Chemical peels can be customised to address various skin types and concerns. Light chemical peels, such as glycolic acid or salicylic acid peels, are generally safe for all skin types, including darker skin. However, medium and deep chemical peels may not be suitable for all skin types due to the risk of complications like hyperpigmentation or scarring. Clients with sensitive skin, a history of keloids, or certain medical conditions may also need to avoid certain types of chemical peels. A thorough consultation with a skincare professional is necessary to determine the best chemical peel for your specific skin type, concerns, and goals. During the consultation, the professional will analyse your skin, discuss your expectations, and recommend the most appropriate peel based on your unique needs.

What is the typical recovery process after a chemical peel, and what can clients expect in terms of healing time and aftercare?

The recovery process after a chemical peel depends on the type of peel performed. For light peels, clients can expect mild redness and flaking for a few days following the treatment. However, they can typically return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Proper aftercare, including the use of gentle skincare products and sun protection, is crucial to ensure optimal results and prevent complications. Medium chemical peels involve a more significant recovery period, with redness and peeling lasting 1-2 weeks. During this time, it’s essential to follow the skincare professional’s aftercare instructions, such as using gentle cleansers, avoiding sun exposure and any exercise for 48h. It’s also essential to avoid picking at the peeling skin, as this can lead to scarring or infection. Deep chemical peels require the most extensive healing time, with significant swelling, crusting, and peeling for 2-4 weeks. Clients may need to take time off work and follow a strict aftercare routine, including applying prescribed ointments, keeping the skin clean, and using cold compresses to minimise swelling. In some cases, the skincare professional may recommend oral medications or additional treatments to facilitate the healing process and ensure the best possible results.

Can chemical peels address a variety of skin concerns such as acne, pigmentation, and signs of ageing, and if so, how?

Chemical peels can effectively address a wide range of skin concerns, such as acne, pigmentation, uneven skin tone, fine lines, and wrinkles. The specific type of peel used, whether it’s a light peel, medium peel, or deep peel, will determine the degree of improvement clients can expect. For instance, superficial peels can help with mild acne, minor pigmentation issues, and mild sun damage, while medium peels can address more severe acne, moderate sun damage, and deeper wrinkles. Deep peels provide the most dramatic results, targeting severe skin issues like deep acne scarring, significant sun damage, and advanced signs of ageing. Combining chemical peels with other cosmetic procedures, such as microdermabrasion, laser treatments, or dermal fillers, can further enhance skin rejuvenation results. This combination of treatments can target multiple skin concerns simultaneously, providing a comprehensive approach to skin improvement.

Is it possible to combine chemical peels with other skincare treatments for enhanced results, and which ones work best together?

Chemical peels can be combined with other skincare treatments to achieve better results. For example, microdermabrasion, microneedling, or dermal fillers can be used alongside chemical peels to address various skin concerns and promote even skin texture and tone. Combining treatments allows for a more comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation, targeting multiple concerns at once and providing clients with a more dramatic overall improvement. It’s essential to consult with a skincare professional to determine the best combination of treatments for your specific needs. They will assess your skin, discuss your goals and expectations, and develop a customised treatment plan to help you achieve the best possible results.

How often should clients undergo chemical peels to maintain optimal results and what potential long-term effects should be considered?

The frequency of chemical peels depends on the type of peel and the client’s specific skin concerns. Light peels can be performed every 2-3 weeks, while medium and deep peels may require more extended periods between treatments to allow for proper healing and skin recovery. A skincare professional will be able to recommend the optimal treatment plan to maintain healthy, rejuvenated skin. Regular chemical peels can help maintain an even skin tone, smooth texture, and youthful appearance. However, it’s crucial to consider any potential long-term effects, such as increased sun sensitivity, changes in skin pigmentation, or a risk of scarring. Ensuring proper aftercare, following the skincare professional’s recommendations, and protecting your skin from the sun are essential steps to minimise potential complications and maintain beautiful, healthy skin.
