The chemical peel is one of the oldest cosmetic procedures in the world. Today chemical peels are among the most popular and widely recognised methods of improving the health and appearance of skin by removing dead skin cells and encouraging new ones to grow. Chemical peel depth can range from very superficial to deep, although several light depth peels can often achieve similar results to one deeper peel treatment, with less risk and shorter recovery time.
Clinicare superficial peels contain a mixture of Gycoliv, Lactica and Salicylic Acids to remove the upper layer of the epidermis encouraging regeneration and rejuvenation of new skin cells. The result is the improved clinical appearance of skin with fewer fine lines, a brighter complexion, improved skin tone and a more youthful appearance.
The Clinicare peels come in 3 targeted ranges – Glow, Pure and Refresh – for specific skin indications and are extremely well tolerated and are extremely well tolerated with minimum side effects.
Treatment intervals for peels vary from 1 week to 4 weeks during a series of 4 to 6 treatments, and the interval is determined by the treatment intensity and sensitivity of the patient’s skin. Very superficial peels are commonly performed at the beginning of a series and treatment intervals are usually every 1-2 weeks, as the skin recovers rapidly from these treatments. More intense superficial peels are associated with a greater degree of exfoliation and require more time for epithelial regeneration.
