Chemical peeling involves the application of a chemical solution to the surface of the skin to produce the careful removal of its outer layers. The amount of skin removed will depend on the type of chemical used, the strength of the product (superficial, medium or deep) and how long it is left on the skin.
They can be used on most areas of the body, but are commonly used on the face or the backs of the hands to improve rough skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, blemishes, scars or acne and actinic keratosis (precancerous skin growth).
At Elite Aesthetics we use a range of superficial to medium depth peels, allowing us to balance efficacy with your lifestyle, to avoid the lengthy recovery periods of the deeper, more aggressive treatments, whilst providing a highly effective peeling system.
If you are considering having a course of peels you will also need to follow a home care regimen with specifically recommended products to allow you to see optimal results.
