CHEMICAL PEEL FAQ'S

WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?

A chemical peel is a minimally invasive procedure that helps improve the appearance of the skin. During the procedure, your medical practitioner carefully applies combinations of powerful solutions to the face, décolletage (neck and chest), or hands to remove dead skin cells. The solutions penetrate into the skin, causing dead skin cells to peel off. The new skin is smoother.

WHICH PEEL IS RIGHT FOR ME?

There are many types of chemical peel preparations, and the right preparation for you depends on your skin type and desired results. Broadly speaking, they can be broken down into their 'depth' - i.e, the depth that the product penetrates into the layers of the skin, and which peel is right for you is based on your current skin, any conditions, and what you are looking to achieve. If you are unsure, we would recommend booking in for a consultation.

WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS OF THE DIFFERENT PEELS?

OBAGI Blue Peel Radiance - Salicylic Acid 20%, Glycolic Acid 1.4%, Lactic Acid 1.76%

THERADERM Light Peel - 50% or 70% Lactic Acid

THERADERM Jessner's Peel - Salicylic Acid 14%, Lactic Acid 14%, Resorcinol 14%

THERADERM Frost Peel Jessner's + Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) 15%, 20%, or 30%

WHAT DO THE DIFFERENT INGREDIENTS DO?

Lactic Acid – is the mildest alpha hydroxy acid and works on the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin)

Salicylic Acid – is a very mild alpha hydroxy acid, often used in acne skincare products. 

Glycolic Acid – is still a mild alpha hydroxy acid, but it stronger than lactic acid and salicylic acid. Often included in superficial peels, and are considered great 'starter' peels. Glycolic acid peels are suitable for those who may otherwise suffer from skin whitening or darkening with the use of other types of peels.  

Trichloracetic Acid (TCA) is an alpha hydroxy acid that is self neutralising.  TCA can be used for deep peels and goes down to the mid-dermis level.  It can be used to remove the skin layers until it reaches the deep dermis with repeated treatments.  TCA peels should only be used by experienced practitioners as it is the strongest acid peels that can be used.

 

Results of all peels can be optimised and maintained with use of a home care system.
