Chemical Peels in London

There are many types of chemical peel preparations, and the right preparation for you depends on your skin type and desired results.

Light or superficial chemical peels usually consist of alpha or beta hydroxy acid, such as glycolic, lactic or salicylic acid, that are combined to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, mild to moderate photo damage, uneven tone and texture, acne and acne scarring. 

  • Skin Renewal: Chemical peels are like a reset button for our skin. They use special solutions made of natural acids to remove the top layer of dead skin cells. It’s like giving our skin a fresh start!
  • Brighter Complexion: After a chemical peel, our skin can look brighter and more radiant. It’s like unveiling a hidden glow that was underneath the old, dull skin.
  • Smooth Texture: Chemical peels can make our skin feel smoother and softer. They help to improve the texture by reducing roughness and fine lines. It’s like a mini makeover for our skin!
  • Addressing Skin Concerns: Chemical peels can help with certain skin concerns, such as acne or pigmentation issues. They work by gently exfoliating the skin and promoting the growth of healthier skin cells.

Remember, taking care of our skin involves maintaining a good skincare routine, protecting it from the sun, and consulting with professionals when needed. 

Our skin is unique and beautiful, and it’s important to embrace and care for it!

Chemical peels are generally safe when performed by a qualified medical professional. However, there are some risks associated with them, such as:

  • Temporary redness, peeling, and dryness of the skin
  • Infection
  • Hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation (lightened skin)
  • Scarring

Yes, chemical peels can be effective in removing dark spots. 

The type of peel and the strength of the acid used will depend on the severity of the dark spots.

Chemical peels can help to improve acne by removing dead skin cells and excess oil from the skin. They can also help to reduce inflammation.

However, chemical peels are not a cure for acne and may not be effective for everyone.

The number of chemical peels you need for hyperpigmentation will depend on the severity of the hyperpigmentation. In general, you will need 3-6 peels spaced 4-6 weeks apart. It is important to note that chemical peels are not a one-time treatment. You will need to have regular peels to maintain the results. 

You should also follow a good skincare routine to help prevent the hyperpigmentation from returning.
