Skinessence medi spa – PEELS

(also known as Cosmeceutical or Chemical Peels)

Until recently, we had two choices: embrace the signs of ageing or pay hefty amounts of cash to go under the knife. Today, however, at Skinessence medi spa we have a range of non-surgical options for you, one of the most popular being the chemical peel.

A peel involves a specially formulated solution being applied to the entire face, or to specific areas.

  • The peel solution damages the skin in a controlled manner, producing a superficial wound.
  • As the controlled damage is repaired by the natural healing process, the skin’s appearance is improved.
  • The depth at which the damage occurs is determined by the nature of the solution applied to the skin and also depends on factors such as the length of time that the solution remains on the skin and how vigorously it is applied.
  • The type of peel used depends on the nature of the skin problem to be treated.
  • Skin problems that respond best to peels are due to chronic sun damage from ultraviolet light.
  • Since most skin peels damage the skin, there is a period of recuperation necessary.
  • Peels are regularly applied in combination with other skin rejuvenation techniques like laser to diminish the signs of sun damage or acne scarring.

Peels can be done on the face, neck, or hands. They can be used to:

  • Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
  • Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and ageing
  • Improve the appearance of mild scars
  • Treat certain types of acne
  • Reduce age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills
  • Improve the look and feel of skin – get that natural healthy glow back

A chemical peel treatment is ideal for both men and woman seeking to control acne, decrease oil production and pore size, treat skin hyperpigmentation, soften fine lines and wrinkles, and prevent blackheads and milia (small white bumps), smooth acne scarring and simply rejuvenate the skin.
