What Is The Purpose Of A Chemical Peel?

Here at Surrey Laser clinic one of the most effective non-invasive treatments we provide is a chemical peel. It is easy to perform as our technicians have some of the most in-depth training with Alumier. Once we have identified from a skin consultation the type of peel that will best suit your needs, we can then tailor a peel treatment to achieve your goals.

A chemical peel is a skincare treatment that involves applying a chemical solution to the skin to remove the uppermost layers. This procedure is designed to improve the appearance and texture of the skin, making it smoother, more even-toned, and glowing. Some of the benefits of a chemical peel on your face include:

  1. Reducing fine lines and wrinkles: Chemical peel treatments can stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that helps keep the skin firm and elastic. This can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. At Surrey Laser we get fantastic results with anti-ageing using peels.
  2. Treating acne: Chemical peels can help eliminate acne by removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores. They can also decrease the severity of acne scars.
  3. Reducing hyperpigmentation: Chemical peels can even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of dark spots caused by sun damage, aging, or hormone fluctuations.
  4. Smoothing rough texture: Chemical peels can improve the texture of the skin by sloughing off rough, uneven areas and revealing smoother, softer skin.
  5. Boosting radiance: By removing dead skin cells and stimulating cell turnover, chemical peels can help make the skin look brighter and more radiant.
  6. Minimising the appearance of pores: Chemical peels can help tighten and shrink pores, making them less visible and more refined.

What is the purpose of a chemical peel?

The purpose of a chemical face peel is to exfoliate the top layer of skin, revealing a smoother, more radiant complexion. It can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, such as:

  1. Acne
  2. Fine lines and wrinkles
  3. Sun damage
  4. Hyperpigmentation
  5. Uneven skin texture

There are different strengths of chemical peels, ranging from mild to deep. The type of peel used will depend on the specific skin concerns being treated and the individual’s skin type and sensitivity.

How long do the benefits of a chemical peel last?

The benefits of a chemical peel can last anywhere from a few weeks up to several months, depending on the type and strength of the peel, as well as the individual’s skin type and condition. Deeper peels may provide more dramatic results but also require longer recovery time and may only need to be done once or twice a year, while milder peels may need to be done more frequently to maintain the desired level of results. Proper skin care and sun protection can also help prolong the benefits of a chemical peel.
