Who Is a Good Candidate For a Chemical Peel?
Generally, fair-skinned and light-haired patients are better candidates for chemical peels. If you have darker skin, you may also have good results, depending upon the type of problem being treated. But you also may be more likely to have an uneven skin tone after the procedure.
Due to the wide range of peeling agents which vary in type, action and concentration; a detailed plan of treatment is formulated at your consultation. Chemical peels are a useful adjunct to surgical treatment, and can help improve skin tone and colour before and after surgery. They may also be used to treat certain types of acne and fine wrinkles.
Used correctly, they allow your surgeon to offer you a complete programme of rejuvenation and will help you achieve a younger, glowing appearance, far more effectively than most over-the counter-products.
We carry a range of superior skincare products which contain effective agents. Used in conjunction with chemical peeling, these can help optimise and maintain your new complexion, giving you a longer-lasting, more satisfying result.
