Chemical peels are exfoliant techniques used to dramatically improve the appearance of the skin by removing the dead skin cells from the superficial layers of the dermis. In this treatment, a solution is applied to the skin that thoroughly cleanses it and removes excess oils. The old skin later peels off and the new, regenerated skin is smoother, tighter and less wrinkled, giving a much younger appearance.
Chemical peels, performed on the face, neck or hands, have been used for decades and help to reduce the following conditions:
- Fine lines
- Wrinkles caused by sun damage, ageing or hereditary factors
- Mild scarring or certain types of acne
- Sun spots, age spots, freckles and dark patches due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills (melasma)
- Dull, colourless and loose skin
We offer a wide range of chemical peels, varying in strength and suitability for different skin types.
A mild peel using alpha-hydroxy (glycolic) acid, is carefully applied to the skin and left on for a maximum of five minutes. A course of 6 peels done over 12 weeks is recommended for the best results. There is no real down time, or noticeable skin peeling.
Trichloroacetic acid peels are medium strength chemical peels that rejuvenate and repair your skin. They improve skin discoloration, reduce fine lines, and even out skin texture. They also cause your skin to physically peel, so they will require around a week of downtime. However, the results are usually well worth the wait! A course of 4 peels every 7-10 days is advised to achieve best results.
Only fully qualified doctors perform such treatments.
Please arrange a free consultation with Dr Linea.
Other peels are available for different skin types, consultation required prior to peel to ensure best results.
Just had my first trip to the dentist in years without having a panic attack..the girls spent time with me explaining and reassuring me before my treatment started. I will return every 6 months now.
Wonderful team and so friendly, made me feel at ease right from the start. I have recommended many of my friends who all say the same. I only wish I had a dentist like Dr Lina years ago.
