About The Treatment

Chemical Skin Peels work by applying a type of chemical solution to the skin’s surface which causes dead skins cells to shrivel and flake off. The new, regenerated skin is left which ultimately gives you smoother, younger looking skin. 

At Cosmetic Sculpting Clinic we use a wide range of chemical solutions and techniques to ensure you receive a bespoke skin solution that will help you to achieve your desired skin goals. Though each patient’s treatment may be unique, we classify our Peels as follows:

Maintenance Peel – This is a light peel aimed to refresh and rejuvenate the skin by stimulating the outer layer. Increased blood flow and cell turnover lead to a bright and healthy appearance. This can be incorporated into your monthly skin regime.

Rejuvenation Peel The aim of the rejuvenation peel is to address minor skin concerns while promoting a healthy and refreshed appearance. This level of peel will be used where a patient wishes to take more time and treat the concerns in a slower and more subtle manner.

Deep PeelPeels in this category require a consultation with a medical practitioner and are reserved for addressing serious skin conditions and concerns such as deep and established lines, severe scarring, pigmentation concerns and other skin issues. Deep Peel treatments can sometimes involve a level of discomfort and may require some aftercare.

What To Expect

The Procedure

Each peel involves its own protocols and may involve different preparation methods, however, the basic element of a chemical skin peel is that a chemical (acidic) solution of a specific strength is applied to the skin and allowed set for a pre-determined time. A neutralising solution is then applied before a thorough cleansing and hydration procedure.

Post Treatment

Depending on the strength of your peel, you may be required to avoid certain skin care products, direct sunlight and other measures to protect the freshly exposed skin. Your skin care consultant will provide you with the relevant information if post treatment care is required.

Before & After

Frequently Asked Questions 

What do skin peels do?

Skin Peels resurface the skin through inducement of a controlled wound, removing the outer layers of the skin. This promotes the growth of a fresh healthy top layer of skin and improves issues such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and uneven texture. 

Why didn’t my skin peel after the treatment?

The efficacy of a peel should not be assessed based on the amount of physical skin peeling, rather the end result of the treatment.  

Peeling of skin will vary from person to person but regardless of visible peeling, the skin cells are still being turned over at a highly increased rate.  

 

What do I need to do before my peel?

One week before the peel, patients should avoid laser hair removal, waxing, electrolysis or any harsh treatments of the area. 

In the days leading up to the treatment the patient should discontinue use of any prescription topicals such as Differin, Tazorac, Retin-A and any other products containing AHA, BHA, Retinol or Benzoyl Peroxide. 

Who should not have a peel?

Peels should be avoided by any patients experiencing the following conditions: 

  • Active Cold Sores; 
  • Wounded, sunburned or excessively sensitive skin; 
  • Accutane use within the last year; 
  • Allergies to aspirin; 
  • Pregnant or Breastfeeding women; 
  • Patients with Vitiligo; 
  • Recent Chemotherapy or radiation therapy; and 
  • Patients with a history of autoimmune disease or any condition that could weaken their immune system. 

Can I exercise after the peel?

Any exercise that produces excessive sweating should be avoided for 24 hours as the sweat can irritate the fresh skin.  

How should I care for my skin after the peel?

Use a soap free, gentle cleanser to wash your face and avoid scrubs, wash cloths or anything with active ingredients for the first week. 

Apply a hydrating moisturiser twice per day or as often as is needed to prevent dryness and control peeling.
