The chemical peel is one of the simplest and most sought-after treatments to rejuvenate your skin. The procedure involves the application of a solution to the skin which removes dead skin cells and stimulates the growth of new ones.
Naturally, your skin regenerates itself by shedding dead skin cells to be replaced by new cells. But, as your skin ages, this process slows down making your skin look dull. Your lifestyle, health, and amount of sun exposure may also add to this, causing your skin to lose its natural luster.
A chemical peel assists your skin to regenerate itself. It restores your skin’s youthful appearance and removes age spots, pigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles to reveal a much healthier younger skin, with lasting results.
Christell Skin Clinic offers different types of peels. Your skin will be assessed by our cosmetologist, and, depending on your skin’s requirements and the level of improvement you desire, the type of peel will be decided.
Preparing for the treatment
Use sunscreen regularly for two days before the treatment. Refrain from using any other creams, moisturizers, or make-up on the area to be treated. Do let us know if you are on any medication. Do not wear any makeup or use any moisturizer or sunblock on the day of the treatment.
Your new, younger skin may appear lighter and pinkish soon after the treatment but, within a week the skin tone will improve, and the results of the treatment will be visible. Your new skin will feel tighter, smoother, and younger.
Take care to protect yourself from the sun. Avoid saunas and steam for seven days after the treatment.
Moisturizers should be applied regularly, every six hours for at least three days. You can wash your face using a gentle face wash six to eight hours after the procedure.
You may experience mild irritation such as redness, peeling, and scabbing. This may last for about two days. But this is normal, and you have nothing to worry about. If you have any concerns you can always call us.
