The Lowdown on Clinical Peels

Do you want to revitalise and rejuvenate your skin? You can those fine lines, acne scarring or skin texture with one of our clinical skin peels. Here is our rundown of what you need to know about peels.  

What is Clinical Peel? 

Clinical peels are a corrective treatment that is results-oriented. They work to target skin laxity, acne, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and other skin imperfections or aging signs. The goal of the peel is to remove the skin’s outer layer of dead skin cells. The process aims to produce a healthier-looking complexion. They are a topical treatment primarily done on the face but can be done on other areas such as the back and arms. 

Benefits of Clinical Peels 

Clinical skin peel facials assist with a variety of skin targets related to imperfections and aging. Peels and treatments help reduce toxins in the skin and blocked pores. It is crucial to maintain the skin’s cleanliness to avoid dirt and grime build-up, leading to acne and clogged pores. Pigmentation, acne and fine lines can all benefit from a clinical peel.  

What is a chemical peel?  

A chemical peel is a chemical solution applied to the skin to assist desquamation. The chemical peel result is to remove dead skin to bring forward newer, more youthful skin.  

How should I prepare for the treatment? 

Stop using retinoids a week before treatment as this can amplify the peeling and redness result of the peel. Avoid laser or other hair removal methods 2 weeks before and after treatment. Your beauty salon in WA will let you know of any other serums or treatments to stop or start before your chosen peel.  

Does the treatment hurt? 

Many clients say they feel mild tingling and stinging sensations, but nothing ever painful.  

How many treatments are needed? 

Generally, 2 – 4 treatments are recommended by specialists to best address your skin needs. It is up to your skin therapist how often these treatments will be, dependent on the desired outcome and your skin type.   

Aftercare 

The clinical peel recovery time is different for everyone. It is normal to look red and irritated after your session that may last a couple of days, depending on the degree of treatment. Using a cool pack on the skin can assist with the redness or itchy sensation to help with this. Do not pick at the skin as this will hinder your progress. When you leave the house, always wear an SPF as sun protection is more important than ever after a clinical peel. The skin is more susceptible to damage, so please take care of it. Keep up with your prescribed skin care routine for best results.
