Types of Chemical Peels
Mild to strong chemical skin peels are available at most spas and clinics. While mild peels can be conducted without the need for anaesthetic, this is not the case for some moderate to strong chemical skin peels. At Results Laser Clinic Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, all skin peels are performed by qualified therapists once a thorough skin analysis is completed.
Mild Chemical Peels
A major component of this chemical peel is alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) which include lactic and glycolic acids to effectively generate younger replenished skin. The prevention of premature aging skin can be achieved with this chemical peel treatment, popular for those between the ages of 24-35. Sun damaged skin, uneven skin-tone and texture, fine lines and acne are some of many concerns that can be treated with mild AHA chemical peels. As skin is photosensitive after treatment, it is important that a broad spectrum SPF30+ sunscreen is applied frequently. Some side effects of the treatment include flaking, redness, dryness, itching and irritation. These will resolve when several chemical peel treatments are undergone and skin is accustomed to the active ingredients.
