Chemical peel frequently asked questions
Chemical peels can be used to treat most skin-related issues such as signs of ageing, including fine lines, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, pitting, and acne.
They can also help with improving skin texture and firmness, even skin tone and reduce pore size by removing the outer layer of the skin and stimulating new tissue growth.
Chemical face peels work by targeting different depths of the skin depending on what you are hoping to achieve from each treatment.
Superficial peels exfoliate to varying levels of the epidermis whereas medium-depth peels treat through the papillary dermis. Deep peels treat the mid-reticular dermis.
Your skin consultant will be able to advise on which type of chemical peel will work best for your unique situation.

Recovery time will vary depending on the type of peel you invest in and your skin’s response to the treatment. Your consultant will be able to advise on how long you can expect the recovery to take post-treatment.
Immediately after your peel, the following responses are normal:
● Redness to the treated area
● A very warm feeling
The redness will diminish after the first few hours, and you may feel tenderness in the treated area.
Within the first 48-72 hours, you may experience an increase in the shedding of dead skin cells. These will flake away themselves, although you will need to avoid touching and rubbing the treated area. Some patients may not experience any obvious shedding of the skin.
