How does a Skin Peel work?

Skin Peels work by targeting different depths of the skin which are determined by the ingredients used. Superficial peels exfoliate to various levels of the epidermis. Medium-depth peels treat through the papillary dermis. Deep peels treat to the mid-reticular dermis and are known to have significant downtime.

How does a superficial Skin Peel work?

Superficial peels work by decreasing the pH levels in the skin, which loosens the connections between dead skin cells, inducing exfoliation and stimulating new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. Skin peels can also thicken the epidermis, increase dermal volume and stimulate collagen.

What Skin Peels do you have?

At Dr Aesthetica, we use AlumierMD for both our Skin Peels and Homecare.  AlumierMD is a medical grade range which can be hyper-customised and tailored to your skin concerns. AlumierMD’s range of Peels cover Superficial to Medium depth.

Who are Skin Peels for?

Skin Peel is ideal for patients who are keen on having non-invasive procedures and those who require more than a superficial Microdermabrasion.

This treatment is perfect for those that have suffered with acne or have other skin concerns around ageing, acne, hyperpigmentation, rosacea or sensitivity.

Where can I have a Skin Peel done on my body?

Skin Peel is most commonly done on the face though can be done on other areas such as the neck, décolleté (upper chest area), back and hands.

When do I need to have a Skin Peel treatment?

You can have Skin Peel whenever you feel you need to.  A consultation will always be undertaken first to make sure that this is the correct treatment for you.  Appropriate care advice will be given Pre and Post the treatment.

How often do I need to have a Skin Peel?

Skin Peels will need to be undertaken with a 4 to 6 week gap between each treatment.  Usually 3 to 6 treatments are required though this depends on the skin concern.

Who will do this treatment for me?

Our Advanced Skincare Specialist, Kiran, can undertake this treatment.

Is there any downtime?

Immediately after treatment, there may be redness to the treated area and a feeling of being very warm.  This redness will diminish after the first few hours.  You may feel tenderness in the treated area.  These responses are all normal. Within the first 48 – 72 hours, you may experience an increase in the shedding of dead skin cells. These will flake away themselves. You will need to avoid touching and rubbing the treated area. Some patients may not experience any obvious shedding of skin.

What happens after a Skin Peel?

Our Advanced Skincare Specialist, Kiran, will give you a Post Procedure Kit to take away with you to use at home as part of your home care regime. No other products should be used alongside this and Kiran will advise you accordingly.

Do I need to have more than 1 Skin Peel?  Do I need to have a course of Skin Peels?

This depends on the cause and/or symptoms being treated. Our Advanced Skincare Specialist, Kiran, will advise you accordingly in your Skincare Consultation & Assessment.

How often can I have Skin Peels?

This depends on the cause and/or symptoms being treated though it is usually 4 to 6 weeks.  Our Advanced Skincare Specialist, Kiran, will advise you accordingly.

Anything else I need to know about having a Skin Peel?

Results from this treatment can be long-term though home care may need to be undertaken to help longevity.

Skin Peel can improve conditions such as rosacea, broken blood vessels, acne or skin pigmentation concerns.

Any downside to having a Skin Peel?

Medium and deep chemical peels require more downtime and carry with them a higher chance of side effects including hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, infection and scars.

At Dr Aesthetica, we will provide you with your Post Procedure Kit which will help you to heal and prevent the chances of this happening.

    review rating 5  An honest practitioner who wouldn’t go ahead with an invasive treatment just for the sake of profit, but who assesses the real need for the job to be done based on the psychological distress of the patient. Friendly and professional.

    review rating 5  Decided to take the plunge and get my tear troughs done, something I've wanted ever since I was in primary school. Am so happy with the results, and even happier with my experience. Dr Farmah was kind, reassuring and professional. The filler was painless and I could see the effects immediately, I look so much more awake now. Have already recommeded to a friend who is interested, will definitely be back. Thanks so much!
