A chemical peel is a technique whereby a type of chemical peel solution is applied to the skin and used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin. Facial skin is mostly treated although any area can be treated (provided it is safe to do so). The chosen peel solution removes the outer layers of skin to improve overall skin function and enhance the appearance. There are many different types of chemical peels and they can be classified broadly into the layer of the skin they treat as well as what the chemical peel is chemically composed off.
Layers include Very superficial, Superficial, Medical and Deep depth peels : the process also helps to stimulate cell renewal, and regenerate a healthier epidermis and dermis.
Peels if done well and chosen correctly can treat sundamage, Rough texture, Fine lines, Hyperpigmentation, Dull, sallow skin color, Enlarged pores, Acne (comedonal) and acne vulgaris (papulopustular), Acne scars, Keratosis pilaris, Thickened scaling skin (e.g. icthyosis), Dry skin (xerosis), Seborrheic keratosis scaling.
Different peels have different ‘down times’ , this means that that for a period of time after the peel your skin will feel red, tight and peel off and this can happen in different severities which means with the more severe peels there is usually more ‘down time’ requiring you to take time off. Dr Prasad will always factor this into your treatment plan. We can plan to do these peels towards the mid/end of the week so that maximal peeling will occur at the week-end.
Again the more experienced the practitioner the more deeper peel they can use. Dr Prasad is versed on using all skin peels including the deepest of peels and has the ability and experience to treat all skin types and specialises in treating skin of colour , asian, Indian and Afro-carribean skin.
