Chemical peels are a method used to improve the appearance and texture of the skin. Commonly used in skin clinics, the technique not only reduces scarring but also helps deal with a number of skin issues.
From improving your skin texture to dealing with pigmentation, chemical peels are used as a treatment option for a number of skin conditions with effective results. The treatment can also be used in dealing with fine lines, sun damage, and scarring.
Chemical peels have proven to be beneficial in treating a number of skin conditions. Some of the common conditions include:
The treatment is also used to help refresh or rejuvenate the skin.
Depending on the patient’s skin type, condition, and objective, we customise the peel treatment to something that is ideal for the patient in question. Keeping the extent of the skin condition in mind, numerous sessions over the course of a year are recommended by dermatologists for the best results. The downtime to the treatment also allows the skin to naturally flake off with time after the treatment.
Chemical peel treatments can be a little uncomfortable but not painful. If you have opted for an in-depth treatment, you will be prescribed pain relief and creams.
The effect of every chemical peel can vary a great deal. More often than not, you may notice a sunburn effect due to the chemical treatment. While procedures that are mild may heal quickly, procedures that are not so mild could cause blisters on the skin. The blisters could also lead to crusting if burst.
For those prone to scarring, a chemical peel treatment in Melbourne can also result in scarring. Consulting with our dermatologists beforehand about the possible side-effects is vital to understand the possible outcomes of a chemical peel to know what you can expect.
It is also advisable to keep a six-month gap between procedures that aren’t mild so that the skin has time to heal. In some cases, your dermatologist may also prescribe bandages to protect cells that are healing.
You will be given a list of things to avoid after the treatment to make sure the treatment is effective. Sun exposure must be avoided after a chemical peel to avoid damage to your sensitive skin. You must also stay away from skin products that could irritate your skin. Your dermatologist can help you figure out what you can and cannot use once you have had a chemical peel treatment.
While the after-effects may seem concerning, chemical peels are a trusted treatment option owing to the beautiful skin tone and texture it leaves behind. Further, newer chemical peel innovations are making it more and more sought-after by patients. These new versions also offer improvements in more ways than one, ensuring that the discomforting after-effects left behind by the peels used before are eliminated completely.
