At Just Magic Skin Care Clinic in Mackay, we offer multiple chemical peel options to help with a variety of skincare needs.
A chemical peel is the process of applying a chemical solution to the skin to smooth out its texture. It can be used to treat many skin issues, such as scars from acne, breakouts, fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation.
A chemical peel is a very popular treatment in Mackay as it helps promote growth of new skin by causing the top layers of skin to peel off using a chemical solution. Chemical peels also treat photo-aging, wrinkles, scarring, and discoloration.
The state of your skin after a peel depends on the type of peel used and your skin type. Superficial peels have limited effects given they only impact the top layer of the skin. Medium peels go deeper into the surface of the skin which can help with deeper acne scarring, but also causes a longer recovery time. Deeper peels may require 10-14 days to recover.
No, you may not always peel after a peel. Those who receive treatments on a regular basis may not see visible peeling because the layers of dead skin cells are at a healthy number. Once again, it also depends on which type of peel you have.
It is generally advised to get a skin peel every four to six weeks. However, if you suffer from acne, there are some peels that you can do every two weeks until you find the expected results.
The downtime of a peel largely depends on the strength of the peel used during the treatment. Light peels do not require much down time. medium and deep peels can require two to three weeks of recovery time.
