A chemical peel can do wonders to improve and brighten your complexion. Here we answer your most asked questions about face peels and what results you can expect.
How do chemical peels work?
A chemical solution is applied to the face, exfoliating the skin, causing it to peel off. The exfoliated surface cells improve the skin’s pigmentation and smooths the surface texture of the face.
Chemical peels also increase the production of collagen, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles, leaving your complexion looking younger and glowing!
If you are prone to acne, skin peels can help reduce your breakouts and signs of scarring, giving you a beautifully even skin tone. If you are interested in other effective remedies for acne scarring, read more about dermaroller skin needling treatments in Bournemouth.
Do chemical peels hurt?
The idea that chemical peels are painful is a common misconception. Although your skin may feel warm and tingly, you should not experience any pain or discomfort. However, a chemical peel may make your skin temporarily more sensitive to the sun. Be sure to protect your skin from UV rays for the first few days after treatment.
How long do the effects of a face peel last?
The results of a face peel may vary depending on your personalised treatment. For the best results, we recommend between 4 and 6 sessions, with a 2 week break in between. You can repeat the treatment twice a year for ongoing, glowing skin.
