Cosmetic Chemical Peel

There are a few levels of Cosmetic Chemical Peels: A Superficial or "lunchtime peel" penetrates only the outer layer of the skin to gently exfoliate your skin.  This level of peel may be used to treat signs of aging to include mild skin discoloration, smooth rough skin or just to give the face, neck, cheeks or hands a refreshed look.   A Medium Cosmetic Chemical Peel penetrates the outer layer of skin and reaches deeper into the skin to remove damaged skin cells.  This level of peel may be used to treat signs of aging to include Age Spots, Fine Lines and Wrinkles, Freckles, Moderate Skin Discoloration, Modest tightening for lax Sun-Damaged Skin, smooth rough skin and may remove some Actinic Keratoses. A Deep Cosmetic Chemical Peel reaches deep into the skin to remove damaged skin cells.  This level of peel can make a person look Years Younger by removing fine to moderate lines, age spots, freckles, and Shallow Scars.  You will see a brighter, smoother, Tighter and more Youthful Skin.  This level of treatment can only be used on the face. Peels are an ancient and time tested modality to remove age spots, melasma and sun damage.    Whatever your choice, make London Medical Spa your First Choice.

4 Tips for Better Results After a Chemical Peel

  1. Do not scratch or rub the treated skin. While the skin may burn, itch, or swell, it is important to resist the urge to scratch or rub. Scratching and rubbing tend to diminish results. To alleviate the discomfort, apply a cold compress.

  2. Keep your skin moist and supple with a quality moisturizer. This will give you better results. If the skin dries out and cracks, scarring may occur.

  3. Do not pick at scabs. After a deep peel, the face tends to scab, but picking at scabs can increase the risk of an infection, skin discoloration, and scarring.

  4. Wear sunscreen everyday, not just after a peel. This includes cloudy days too.  Applying sunscreen before your makeup will help maintain the results.
