What do chemical peels do?
Chemical peels help regenerate new, fresh skin by removing its old, superficial layers. They consist of chemical agents that treat the top layer of your skin, helping you to shed it and stimulate new growth.
What do they help with?
- Unclogging pores
- Repairing sun-damaged skin
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Reducing uneven skin pigmentation
- Encouraging new collagen growth.
The effects depend on the peel grade, and at Sleeq, our clinicians will be able to recommend the perfect peel for your concerns.
What should I expect from the procedure?
Treatment takes a few minutes and involves no discomfort.
How long is the recovery after a chemical peel and what type of care is necessary?
No post treatment downtime is required. Mild to moderate peeling lasting two to five days is typical. Sun exposure should be limited while skin is peeling. We recommend subsequently applying only sunscreen to your face for the remainder of the day.
What type of peeling should I expect?
The effects of a peel should not be judged by the amount of peeling it produces, but by the end results! The amount of peeling varies from person to person, and depends on the grade of the peel. Regardless of how much you peel, the skin is till sloughing off at an accelerated rate, giving you an improvement in breakouts, skin tone and fine lines.
How many chemical peels will I need?
We recommend a series of peels to be applied monthly for best results. This is because a peel must be effective enough to allow time for regrowth, but mild enough to avoid undesired effects. This time span is our recommended sweet spot between the two.
What should I avoid before a chemical peel?
For three days prior to treatment avoid any other facial treatments or hair removal. Those with active skin irritation or open wounds or sores should avoid treatment until the skin heals.
Why use chemical peels?
Over time, our skin goes through many changes from adolescence to adulthood. Acne scars from puberty, wrinkles from aging, and even skin damage from sun exposure can leave unwanted marks. Chemical peels help the skin to reset and appear healthier and more youthful!
