Peels for Skin Rejuvenation

A Chemical peel is exactly what it says: peeling of the skin using a chemical. A chemical peel removes the outer layers of the skin. This freshens the skin, removes some sunspots and rough scaly patches, and reduces freckles and irregular pigmentation.It also reduces fine wrinkles and is beneficial for acne.

There is some evidence that it may reduce the risk of skin cancer. It is safest and most effective on the face. Hands can be peeled but the risk of scarring is higher and the results less predictable.

There are several types of chemical peel, each using different chemicals and fruit acids. Light and medium depth peels use TCA (Trichloroacetic acid) Peel. The gentler alternative is available in the form of a Fruit Acid Peel.

TCA Peel (light to med depth trichloroacetic peels)

The TCA peel works by causing sloughing or removal of the upper layers of skin. Normally these are the layers that are damaged by the elements such as sun, wind and neglect. By removing the upper layers of skin, the overall skin texture is dramatically smoothed, superficial wrinkles are quickly eliminated and colour irregularities are improved. The advantage of this peel is that the the application is easy and ensures even uptake into the skin. Patients benefit by regaining a fresher more vibrant appearance.

It has been used for many years to treat facial wrinkles, age spots, pigment abnormalities, mask of pregnancy and other superficial skin problems such as sun damaged skin. (Including pre-cancerous lesions), acne / acne scarring, freckles, appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and the appearance of superficial scars.

The TCA Peel is one of the most innovative ways to easily and optimally rejuvenate the skin using a special based formulation.

The Treatment

When TCA is applied to the skin, it causes the top layers of cells to dry up and peel off over a period of several days. When the old skin has peeled off, it exposes a new layer of undamaged skin which has a smoother texture and more even colour.

TCA is applied to your skin. Treatment is administered in a single session, of around 15 - 30 minutes duration. During this period, you may experience a slight burning sensation. This sensation is so slight, no sedation or anesthesia is required.

At the end of your treatment session, you will be provided with a treatment information leaflet. This document acts as a reference card to enable you to maximise the benefits from your treatment.

More than one TCA peel may be needed to achieve the desired result. This will be decided during your free consultation.

Aftercare

After having a TCA peel your new skin will be sensitive to sunlight for at least 6-8 weeks afterwards. During this time it is very important to protect the new skin with sunscreens, hats and the avoidance of strong sunlight.

Jessner Peel

Jessners Peel is a superior treatment designed to remove superficial layers of skin. Itís one of the most effective light cosmetic peel available.

A Jessner peel consists of a mild peeling agent that can be used to lighten areas of hyperpigmentation and to treat aged sundamged skin. The Jessnerís peel is excellent for all skin types. It smoothes and rejuvenates skin, producing beautiful results in treating mild to severe acne, discoloration, moderate wrinkling, and sun damage. Peeling the face, neck, hands, and upper chest is also quite effective.

The Jessnerís peel is very beneficial for patients with acne, oily, or thicker skin, because it tends to decrease oil production and open clogged sebaceous follicles. It also contributes to the healing process of acne.

The Jessnerís peel combines resorcinol, lactic acid, and salicylic acid to result in deeper penetration and greater exfoliation of the outer layers of skin cells. This deeper exfoliation produces noticeable flaking and exfoliation in the following three to four days after the peel, and within a week a smoother, healthier layer of skin will be revealed.

A Jessner's Peel is a medium depth peel performed by a trained practitioner.
