Chemical Skin Peels

chemical-skin-peels

The quality of your skin greatly affects your overall appearance. Beautiful skin can make an entire person appear beautiful. People go to great lengths in order to maintain a healthy, glowing and fresh looking skin. From facewash, creams, moisturizers and sunblocks to vitamin tablets, there are so many products that people buy to preserve the natural beauty of their skin. Women will often use makeup to to  hide their flaws such as concealers and foundations. But no amount of makeup can be a good substitute for great skin.

Although everyday products like creams and facewashes are effective, they don’t treat a number of issues such as pigmentation, aging skin, acne, scarring or large pores.

Chemical skin peels in Dubai address a variety of skin problems that a person might be facing

Treatment:

Chemical skin peels can greatly improve the appearance of the skin. In this treatment a chemical solution is applied to the skin which makes blister and gradually peel off. The new skin that is exposed is smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.

Chemical peels can be performed on the face, neck or hands. They can be used to:

  • Treat wrinkles caused by exposure to the sun or aging
  • Reduce fine lines around the mouth and under the eyes
  • Improve the appearance of mild scars
  • Treat mild forms of acne
  • Reduce age spots, dark patches and freckles
  • Improve the appearance and quality of the skin

After the treatment, sun sensitivity of the skin temporarily increases, so it is essential to wear sunscreen everday. The sunscreen should be broad-spectrum, meaning it should be able to protect against harmful UV rays from the sun. Staying out in the sun should be avoided, especially between 10 a.m and 2 p.m, as the sun’s rays are the strongest during this time.

You should also wear a wide-brimmed hat if you happen to go outside.

Who is a suitable candidate for Chemical Skin Peels in Dubai?

Typically individuals with fair skin and light hair are the best candidates for chemical peels. Those with darker skin may also show good results depending upon the kind of problem being treated. Darker skinned patients are more likely to have an uneven skin tone after the procedure.

Chemical peels do not respond well to skin sags, bulges and severe wrinkles. These patients may need other cosmetic surgery procedures such as facelift, eyelid lift, brow lift, facelift or a tissue filler. The experienced surgeon can help identify the most appropriate treatment for such patients.

 Preparation:

  • Inform your surgeon if you have any history of scarring, cold sores that keep coming back or facial x-rays
  • Your surgeon may ask you to discontinue usage of certain drugs and prepare skin by using other medications such as Retin-A, renova of glycolic acid
  • The doctor might also prescribe antibiotics or antiviral drugs
  • Discuss with your surgeon the depth of the peel
  • Ask your surgeon whether you will require someone to drive you home after the procedure

Procedure:

This procedure is outpatient, which means there is no overnight stay.

The professional will first cleanse your skin thoroughly. Then he or she will apply one or more chemical solutions to small areas of your skin. This will create a controlled wound, allowing new skin to replace it.

During the treatment you will feel a burning sensation that only lasts for five to ten minutes and is followed by a stinging sensation. Pressing cool compresses on the skin can help relieve the stinging. If the peel is deeper, you may need pain medication during or after the procedure.

Recovery:

A reaction similar to sunburn occurs after the procedure. Peeling usually involves redness followed by scaling that stops within three to seven days. Milder peels can be repeated with one to four week gaps until you get the look you want.

Medium and deep peeling will result in swelling as well as blisters that will peel from one to two weeks. Medium peels can be repeated in 6 to 12 months if necessary.

After treatment you will need bandages for several days on part or all of the treated skin. You will have to avoid the sun for several months after the chemical peel as your new skin will be fragile.

Possible Risks:

Some skin types have more chances of developing a temporary or permanent change in the colour of the skin after the peel. Taking birth control pills, subsequent pregnancy, or a family history of brownish pigmentation on the face can make it more likely

There is a low risk of scarring. Some people are more likely be scar, but it can usually be treated with positive results.

Chemical skin peels in Dubai is a safe, economical and highly effective procedure that is very popular among people from all walks of life.
