What is a Chemical peel?

Chemical Peel, skin peel, or skin resurfacing Treatment as they may be known is an advanced cosmetic procedure offered in modern skincare clinics like here at Beauty Adavnce. They are not only used to treat problematic skins types, but can also be built into a regular skincare programme to address individual needs.
Skin peels have become more and more popular over the years. There are many options from mild resurfacers to deep peeling treatments. Many clinics offer packages or discount options, but since chemical peel is an advanced treatment, we want our clients to know what it involves so we advised of the procedure to insure that it is right for them before proceeding.
What Is Chemical Peel For?  The aim of skin peeling is to gently remove the skin layers. Skin is a living organ made up of millions of cells. Every day thousands of cells die, fall off and are replaced by new cells. Unfortunately, as we age this becomes a slower process and causes your skin to shed unevenly creating uneven, dull and lifeless complexion.
The function of a skin peel is to create an even controlled shedding of several layers of damaged cells. This exposes a new fresh layer of skin with a more even colour and a smoother texture. In addition, the peel stimulates new cells to grow, thereby tightening the skin, which improves skin texture.

Benefit Of Chemical Peel?  All peels effectively increase cellular turnover, stimulate collagen and elastic production and address sun damage. Each of the resurfacing treatments have their own unique benefits and can be combined as a course treatment package depending on the individual clients needs and expectations.

Different Kinds of Chemical Peel? We offer different types of Chemical peels here at Beauty Advance this is why we offer all our clients a complementary consultation so you and the practitioner can decided which is best for you.

What Will A Skin Peel Facial Procedure Include?  A typical peel treatment will include 4 steps.
  1. Cleanse the skin to remove make up or any impurities 
  2. Apply skin preparation solutions to strip the acid mantle 
  3. Apply peel solution to the skin 
  4. Finish with after peel products to allow healthy skin cell regeneration and accelerate the peeling process

What You Will Experience After Chemical Peel Treatment? After the Treatment, clients will generally experience several stages of healing until the skin finishes peeling.   

Day 1: the skin feels warm, like sun-burn and it will feel a bit tight.

Day 2: tight and very dry

Day 3: the skin feels extremely dry and dehydrated and may start to flake.

Day 4: skin will start to peel.
It will vary from client to client with regards to how long the skin will peel for. This process can take 2 days to 1 week.

Before and After Having a Chemical Peel Procedure  You have to have a skin consultation with one of our practitioners. The practitioners will assess your skin and discuss your requirement in detail and then recommend a suitable treatment for you.  You will also have to commit to a course of home care products priori to treatment to insure that you achieve the best results by preparing the skin before hand. This is also important in helping the skin healing process after the procedure.
