Chemical peels are a type of non-surgical face lift that is available at Zenith Cosmetic Clinics, London.
Used to improve the complexion of your face, chemical peels are an exfoliating skin treatment. They produce profound results, smoothing the skin and erasing wrinkles to leave you looking rejuvenated.
A chemical peel does what it says on the tin. It uses a chemical to peel away the topmost layers of skin. It may sound unappealing, but it has been a tried and tested treatment for decades with proven benefits.
Suitable for anyone over the age of 18, chemical peels are a simple but effective aesthetic beauty treatment.
Conditions that the procedure can treat include:
Everybody is unique and so we recommend that you book a consultation with our London clinic. This will give you the opportunity to learn more about us and the treatments we offer and raise any concerns. We can discuss the results you are hoping to achieve and which treatment plan would suit your requirements.
A chemical peel typically takes around 60 minutes and up to two hours recovery time. During the procedure, a chemical solution is applied to the skin. The strength of the solution depends on the desired result.
Mild chemical peels are a short term treatment that can be used to freshen up the face and give an invigorated appearance. A more concentrated chemical solution can be used to strip off blemishes, reduce pigmentation and lessen wrinkles or scarring.
The first stage of the procedure is a thorough face cleanse to prepare for the application of the solution. We use the Agera range of chemical peels. It is normal for you to experience a mild to moderate tingling/burning sensation when these are applied.
At Zenith Cosmetic Clinics, we do our best to make you feel comfortable at every stage of the process. We will use a fan to offset any discomfort that may develop, and check in regularly as you relax and let the peel do its work.
After the peel is removed, your face will be cleansed and moisturised.
Typically after a chemical peel, your face will look a little red and may feel sore or tight. Occasionally cold-sores might reappear if you’ve had them before.
It is important to note that strong chemical peels can result in scarring, infection (very rare), or a darker/lighter skin tone that may be permanent. This is why it is essential that you choose a clinic you can trust to deliver your treatment safely.
Aftercare is relatively simple. You will need to moisturise regularly and avoid direct sunlight as much as possible for at least a month. Use sun cream if this is not practical.
Results depend on the strength of the chemical peel you choose. All chemical peels are designed to improve skin health and brighten your complexion. Stronger peels have the added benefit of smoothing the texture of the skin by removing blemishes.
Though the effects of a strong chemical peel last longer than a mild one, you will still need periodic treatment to maintain results. This is around every few weeks for mild peels and perhaps every 6 months for stronger peels.
