Chemical Peeling

Chemical peeling, a cosmetic procedure, entails applying a chemical solution to the skin for exfoliation and revitalisation. It aims to enhance texture, tone, and appearance by eliminating dead skin cells and stimulating collagen production, ultimately rejuvenating the outer layers. This treatment is adept at improving the skin's overall health and achieving a more youthful and radiant complexion through careful and professional application by licensed aestheticians and skincare experts.

Frequently Asked Questions

How should I care for my skin after a chemical peel?

After a chemical peel, it's important to follow specific post-treatment care instructions. This typically involves keeping the skin clean and moisturised, avoiding sun exposure, wearing sunscreen, and refraining from picking or exfoliating the treated area. It's also essential to stay hydrated, avoid excessive heat, and follow any additional guidelines provided by your skincare professional. Adhering to these instructions will help ensure proper healing and maximise the benefits of your chemical peel.

Can I wear makeup after a chemical peel?

After a chemical peel, it is generally recommended to avoid wearing makeup for the first 24 to 48 hours. This allows the skin to heal and breathe without any potential interference or irritation from cosmetics. Additionally, the freshly treated skin may be sensitive and more susceptible to reactions or infection, so it's best to give it time to recover before applying makeup. Once the initial healing period has passed, you can gradually reintroduce makeup products, making sure to choose non-irritating and non-comedogenic options to avoid any potential complications.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with chemical peeling?

While chemical peeling is generally considered safe when performed by a qualified professional, there are potential side effects and risks to be aware of. These can vary depending on the type and depth of the peel, as well as individual skin sensitivity. Common side effects may include temporary redness, dryness, flaking, and mild irritation. In rare cases, more serious complications such as infection, scarring, changes in skin color, or allergic reactions can occur.
