Although our skin is able to replace old cells with new ones, over time this natural exfoliating process begins to slow down.
Chemical peel treatment involves a solution of one or more exfoliating agents (such as AHA’s) being applied to the face to remove the rough upper layer of skin and to stimulate rejuvenation of the new skin cells. They generally result in tighter, smoother skin that has a reduction in fine lines and blemishes such as age spots and uneven pigmentation.
Chemical peels are classified as light (superficial), medium and deep according to the depth that they penetrate the skin. Light and medium facial peels are used to reduce superficial wrinkles and discolouration, and deep chemical peels are used for more severe conditions such as severe acne. Generally, the deeper the chemical peel the longer the recovery time required.
Light chemical peels generally have minimal downtime; however medium and deep chemical peels can take longer to heal. Deep peels can be only performed by a Medical Doctor. At Looks Divine we offer the range of IMAGE chemical peels, so-called new generation peels, which are considered to be light peels whilst delivering optimum results.
Chemical peels can be repeated as necessary to achieve and maintain the desired results. We recommend a course of 6 chemical peels with 2 weeks apart.
Chemical peels are great for:
- Hormonal Pigmentation
- Sun damage
- Reducing pore size
