Chemical Peels are not a new phenomenon; they have been used for hundreds of years in various forms. Cleopatra was the first known exponent of chemical peels, with ancient Romans also using various food acids to peel their skin. In the early 1900’s salons offered peels with “secret ingredients”

Glycolic acid peels continue to be the mainstay of many skin treatments today.

  • Chemical peels remove the outer layer of skin.
  • They are fast and convenient with minimal “down time”.
  • They have immediately noticeable results.
  • They reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • They remove rough scaly patches.
  • They give a fresher, brighter, more hydrated appearance.
  • They are safe and effective on black/ Asian skin.

Is the treatment painful?

The treatment is not painful, although it should be expected to experience a slight tingling, or heat like sensation

Will I need more than one session?

It is not imperative to have more than one session, although some patients like to continue with the treatment as part of a course when seeking deeper textural changes for their skin.

How quickly will I see results?

Results can be seen almost immediately for most following the subsidence of the initial reddening of the skin post treatment. For others, it may take a couple of days for any dryness and sensitivity to diminish.
