A chemical peel is a technique designed to create a younger, fresher appearance by improving the texture of the skin on the face, without the need for surgery. It is used to revitalise skin when there are signs of sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, mild acne or scarring.
The peel removes the top layer(s) of the skin using a chemical preparation. As the new skin grows back, it normally appears smoother and softer than before and imperfections are reduced.
A chemical peel is usually performed as a standalone procedure, but it can be performed in conjunction with other treatments, such as a face lift.
There are a variety of different treatments that can be used to improve the appearance of scarring (including acne scarring).
Undertaking a medical grade skin care regime on a daily basis can do wonders for your complexion and improve the overall appearance of scarring.
Chemical peels, dermaroller, dermastamp and surgical scar revision may also be treatments that are suitable for you.
We will conduct a thorough skin analysis with you at your initial consultation and recommend the most appropriate course of action.
