Skin Glow Peels

Few people have perfect skin. However, some of us sometimes experience more complex issues than just an occasional pimple. If your skin has been damaged by severe acne, sun exposure, or other conditions, you may feel self-conscious about your appearance. Chemical peels can help.

Chemical peels are non-invasive cosmetic procedures that improve the appearance of skin not just on the face, but also the neck, legs, arms, or body, with the exception of sensitive areas such as near the eyes or on the genitals. By exfoliating the uppermost layers of skin, a chemical peel can reduce the appearance of skin abnormalities, revealing the smooth, healthy skin below. Chemical peels can also promote collagen production.

How are Chemical Peels Performed?

Our skin naturally sheds layers and produces new ones throughout our life. However, this doesn’t occur in a uniform manner, which can leave skin uneven, blotchy, and even rough in spots. In addition, blemishes and wrinkles are not improved by this natural process. That’s where chemical peels come in.

A chemical peel is composed of an acid-based solution that is applied to the skin. The acids in the solution exfoliate the skin by chemically weakening the bonds that hold skin cells together, loosening the uppermost layers of the skin. This will allow those layers to easily be removed, revealing healthy, smooth, new skin below. This process can also boost the growth of new skin cells and encourage the production of collagen, which is vital for the skin’s firmness.

The name chemical peel can be a bit misleading. Not all chemical peels cause the skin to peel. Some acids treat the skin by peeling it at the microscopic level. Also, you may experience different results depending on your skin type. Those with thicker, oilier skin may not peel much at all, while those who have thin, more sensitive skin may peel a lot.

During your chemical peel procedure, our medical aesthetician will apply the chemical peel solution to the area of skin to be treated, and then gently remove the dead skin cells. Chemical peel treatments usually last less than an hour, depending on the area of your body you’re having treated. All chemical peels are performed on an outpatient basis. You may see results after just one treatment, but depending on the severity of your skin condition, multiple treatments may be needed to achieve optimal results.

Immediately following a chemical peel, your skin will be sensitive to sun exposure. You may also experience redness, crusting and flaking of your skin. This is completely normal, and will only last a few days, or possibly a couple of weeks, depending on the strength of the peel. Once the treated skin has flaked off, beautiful, new skin with fewer blemishes, wrinkles and blotches will be revealed. If you properly care for your newly revealed, healthy skin, you can achieve long-lasting results. Chemical peels are not recommended for pregnant or lactating women.

At Delight Clinic, we offer Skin Glow Peel, a high-quality peel that addresses:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Fine Lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Sun and Age Spots
  • Discoloration
  • Acne
  • Uneven Skin Tone
  • Signs of Aging

Glow Peel is a light- to medium-depth peel as it exfoliates multiple levels of the epidermis, and can penetrate down to the papillary dermis (the uppermost layer of the dermis), if necessary. It’s safe for all skin types on the Fitzpatrick Scale. It can also be customized to your specific needs based on your skin type and the issue you want to correct. We do this by adjusting the strength of the peel through the number of layers applied.

After your Chemical Peel

To ensure optimal results and avoid complications, it’s important for you to follow your aesthetician’s instructions, and properly care for your skin after you’ve had a chemical peel.

What are Chemical Peels?

We offer customized chemical peel treatments for many skin concerns, and to achieve overall enhancement and improvement in the condition and appearance of the skin. Due to the variety of treatment combinations and benefits that are available, we recommend that patients schedule a consultation to discuss their needs and goals.

Skin Glow Peels – Frequently Asked Questions

What are the signs of aging skin?

Aging is a natural process of your body and should be embraced in whatever form it begins to show. When a person ages, the skin starts to show certain changes in texture, colour, and firmness- commonly known as the ‘signs of aging’, these are as follows- • Fine Lines • Wrinkles • Dullness • Uneven skin tone • Age spots • Sagging skin • Dryness

Does Stress contribute to skin ageing?

Today stress plays a more constant role in many of our lives. Our bodies are constantly producing the hormones and this makes our skin age faster. The most prominent hormone in the stress response is cortisol. Cortisol can influence the breakdown of collagen, the most prominent part in deeper layers of the skin. Changes in collagen structure and amount can result in wrinkle formation, but an anti-ageing treatment will support collagen production and help prevent fine lines and wrinkles.

What’s the best age to start using anti-aging products or procedures?

The best time to start addressing wrinkles is once you see them in the mirror. Usually, this is noticeable in your late 20s. But you can take preventive measures, like sunscreen use. It’s the most effective and affordable anti-aging product out there.

Is there a way to prevent wrinkles or slow down the process?

Along with many other skin health issues, prevention is the most effective thing you can do for facial wrinkles. Using aggressive sun protection and an effective anti-aging topical program consistently over the years will help your skin to look incredible as you age. Prevention of sun-related wrinkles and skin changes is the best thing you can do long-term for your skin health.

How is volume loss treated in facial rejuvenation?

Regions of volume loss can be addressed using dermal fillers. Injections of hyaluronic acid into the deep fat compartment can go a long way to restoring a youthful appearance. The ultimate natural filler is, of course, your own fat and fat transfer provides the best long term solution to volume loss.

How are sagging cheeks and jowls treated in facial rejuvenation?

Where there is excessive volume in the superficial fat parcels and together with weakening of ligaments, there is a general sagging of the face. Gravity also plays a significant role over time. In this case a lifting effect is required. This can be achieved with appropriate placement of dermal fillers or fat, to emphasize cheek regions. Sagging jawline can be hidden with clever placement of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. A direct lifting effect can be provided by the use of threads such as PDO or PCL threads that can be used to lift the jawline and cheek as well as tighten the neck.
