Every day the outer layer of our skin is battered by the elements and pollutants causing it to appear dull and lifeless. Many consider this to be an inevitable part of the aging process, but a perfect, flawless complexion lies just below the outer surface of your skin and chemical peels are a great way to uncover this inner beauty.
Chemical peels have been around for quite some time and seem to be regaining popularity in recent years. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, chemical peels may be able to reverse skin conditions such as melasma and breakouts better than some of the high-tech devices.
The chemical peels today are of a much higher quality than when peels first became popular in the 1990s. The quality of the peeling chemicals has been refined as well as the techniques used for performing the procedure. The goal now is to permeate your skin with ingredients that improve tone and build collagen and not simply peeling away your outer layer of skin.
Another advantage of chemical peels is that they enhance the effect of your skin care products as they remove the outer layer of dead cells which can impede their penetration. The treatment can be customised depending on your individual skin type for maximum benefit.
At One Skin Clinic under the expert care of Dr. Najia Shaikh, your skin will be examined and the ideal chemical peel treatment will be recommended to help reduce fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, age spots, and irregular pigmentation of the skin of your face and neck. The in-office peels can be used for treating post-acne scarring, melasma, and large pores. At-home peels may also be provided with instructions for their use.
Please book an appointment with One Skin Clinic to consult Dr. Najia Shaikh on how chemical peels or our other non-surgical treatments may benefit your skin type.
