Chemical peels are skin resurfacing treatments that aim to remove the top layer of skin, to regenerate a new and healthier surface to the complexion. Typically performed in series, these treatments can improve a variety of common skin concerns, including: dull skin, lines and wrinkles, sun damaged skin, pigmentation, uneven texture, minor scarring and acne. Our complexion can change in both tone and texture, as we progress through adulthood, due to the impacts of ageing and other external contributors.
Your skin concerns will be analysed at a thorough consultation, prior to treatment, from which the right chemical peel can be recommended. Chemical peels are available in varying depths – superficial, medium and deep – and are chosen depending on the type of concern that needs to be addressed.
At Nassif MedSpa the following peels are available:
The ZO stimulator peel – a superficial peel that is suitable for those who are looking to boost the health of the complexion;
The Obagi Blue Peel Radiance – a salicylic acid based facial chemical peel that exfoliates to improve the overall look of the skin, providing a firmer, brighter, smoother appearance;
The ZO 3 Step Peel – an incredibly powerful peel that maximises skin improvement and offers longer-lasting results than ordinary professional peels.
Chemical peels can be used to treat the face, neck or chest. A solution that contains a combination of acids and other active ingredients, develops on the skin to encourage the start of a process that works to help the top layers of the skin to shed. This process may not begin for around a week after the initial treatment and can take up to 10 days to complete.
Once the skin has peeled it can unveil a surface layer that reveals new, healthier skin cells for a smoother, brighter more evenly toned complexion.
