Unveil Radiant Skin with Chemical Peels at Direct Aesthetics
Revitalize your skin and achieve a luminous complexion with our rejuvenating chemical peel treatments.
What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure that involves applying a chemical solution to the skin, causing it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The purpose of a chemical peel is to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, or hands. The procedure can address various skin concerns, including:
Uneven Skin Tone
Chemical peels can help reduce the appearance of dark spots, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
They can minimize the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles, promoting a smoother complexion.
Acne and Acne Scars
Chemical peels can be effective in treating acne and reducing the appearance of acne scars.
Uneven Skin Texture
The exfoliation process helps improve skin texture, making it smoother and more even.
Chemical peels can target sun-damaged skin, addressing sunspots and other related issues.
During the procedure, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, and it works by removing the outer layers, prompting the regeneration of new skin cells. The depth of the peel can vary, ranging from superficial peels that target the outer layer of the skin to deeper peels that penetrate more deeply. The choice of peel depends on the specific skin concerns being addressed.
Following the procedure, our team provides comprehensive post-treatment care instructions, including the importance of sun protection, to ensure optimal results and minimize any potential complications. Consult with us at Direct Aesthetics to determine the most suitable type of chemical peel for your unique skin concerns, ensuring a safe and effective cosmetic experience.
Effects on skin
What does a chemical peel do to your skin?
During a chemical peel, a specially formulated solution is applied to the skin, causing controlled exfoliation. This process prompts the removal of dead skin cells and stimulates the regeneration of new, healthier skin. Treated skin will begin to form a crust and might darken or develop brown blotches. Treated areas take about seven to 14 days to heal after a medium chemical peel, but redness might last for months. The end result is a smoother, more even complexion with a youthful glow.
How long do chemical peels last?
Typically, the duration of the results following a chemical peel facial depends on the depth of the peel treatment. A light or superficial peel often yields results that can endure for one to two months, while a medium peel may provide lasting effects for up to six months.
How long do you peel after a chemical peel?
The peeling process typically initiates 48-72 hours post-treatment and may persist for 2-5 days. It is crucial to avoid picking at peeling skin; minimal peeling can be easily managed with moisturizer. Premature peeling may lead to dry, cracked, raw skin and could contribute to hyperpigmentation.
Safe or not
Are chemical peels safe?
Yes, when performed by Direct Aesthetics, a qualified skincare professional, chemical peels are generally safe. However, like any cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks and side effects. It’s essential to follow post-treatment care instructions and discuss any concerns with the skincare professional conducting the peel.
How often should I get a Chemical Peel?
The frequency of chemical peels depends on your skin type and the results you want to achieve. Most people get chemical peels every 3-4 weeks.
Who should not get a chemical peel?
Chemical peels are not advisable for individuals who are pregnant or nursing, experiencing inflamed acne or a sunburn, or taking Accutane. Those using retinoids can still undergo a chemical peel but must discontinue the product three to four days before the treatment.
