TREATMENT ADVICE

Tell the aesthetic therapist if you have any history of scarring, cold sores that keep coming back, or facial X-rays. Your aesthetic therapist may ask you to stop taking certain drugs and prepare your skin by using the recommended products. Work with your aesthetic therapist to determine the depth of your peel. This decision depends upon the condition of your skin and your goals for treatment. Your aesthetic therapist can help you decide what depth of peel and what type of chemical solution is most appropriate, based on your skin type, which areas you want peeled, what kind of results you want, how much risk you are willing to take, and other issues. A small “test spot” may be peeled to get a better idea of the results, especially for people who have darker skin.
Between two to six weeks before the peel, you will need to begin preparing your skin by applying the products recommended by your therapist. This skin care regimen will help the skin peel more evenly, speed healing after the peel, and may reduce the chance of infection and other complications, especially uneven colour changes in the skin.

Right before the peel, the skin is cleaned. The chemical (usually a liquid or paste) is then applied to the skin with a small brush. The chemical is left on the skin for several minutes. A neutralization solution may be used to neutralize the acid and end the chemical reaction, and then it is wiped off. You may feel a little burning while the chemical is on your skin. A handheld fan can help cool the skin and relieve any discomfort.

Recovery time after a chemical peel depends on what kind of peel was done and how deep it was. With all types of peels, proper care of the skin after the peel is very important to speed healing, help results last longer, prevent infection, and avoid colour changes in the treated area caused by sun exposure. Proper skin care after a peel is very similar to the care used to prepare for a peel and typically involves:

  • Using the products prescribed by your Skin Specialist, religiously everyday;
  • Avoiding any sun exposure until peeling has stopped and sunscreen can be used. After peeling has stopped, sunscreen should be used every day. New skin is more susceptible to sun damage.

Chemical peels are designed to wound and remove the upper layers of the skin. You need to prepare yourself for how your skin will look immediately after the peel and throughout the healing process. Even with realistic expectations, you may not see results for several weeks or months after a chemical peel.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

DermaQuest chemical peels and resurfacer treatments harness the deeply exfoliating properties of a variety of naturally occurring acids including those derived from fruit, nuts and milk to name but a few. These acids including Lactic, Mandelic, Glycolic and Salicylic help to un-clog pores, reduce inflammation and regulate excessive oil production thus removing dead and damaged skin cells and stimulating the renewal of healthy new cells beneath the surface of the skin. Following treatment, open pores, blemishes, acne, pigmentation and fine lines are all reduced visibly and skin is left glowing, tightened and radiant.

Resurfacers, sometimes referred to as mild peels, are superficial exfoliating treatments, meaning that they work on the very top layer of the skin and use enzymes and acids to refine and exfoliate. Resurfacers generally have little-to-no downtime following treatment. By comparison, chemical Peels will also exfoliate and address a wide variety of concerns, yet they have the ability to penetrate the mid to lower levers of the epidermis, delivering stronger, extended results. Because chemical peels are so active and deeply penetrating, downtime of up to 10 days can be expected.

DERMAESTHETICS CLINIC offers an extensive range of DermaQuest chemical peels and resurfacers that can be customised to most effectively address your specific area of concern. To find the perfect skin peel or resurfacer for you, we always conduct a thorough consultation, analysis and patch test to select the solution to suit your skin type, needs and lifestyle. As part of this consultation process you will also be advised of any preparation that may be necessary to condition your skin ahead of your peel or resurfacer treatment.

After one chemical peel or resurfacer treatment, overall skin tone and complexion will appear smoother, fresher and more radiant. There will be a noticeable reduction in break outs, blemishes and signs of ageing. Depending on the severity of skin conditions to be addressed, multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results. A series of 3 chemical peel treatments applied once every 4 weeks or a series of six resurfacer treatments taken at 2 weeks intervals will usually allow for optimal results. Provided the skin is maintained with good quality skin care products as recommended at initial consultation, skin improvement following treatment will be longlasting.
*Each of the DermaQuest chemical peel and resurfacer treatments offers a specific and slightly different range of benefits, which will be discussed thoroughly at consultation.

DermaQuest chemical peels and resurfacer treatments are completely safe and non-invasive. The sensation of chemical peels and resurfacers will vary from person to person due to skin tolerance, skin condition, severity of a skin complaint and strength of the peel, however most clients generally experience tingling, warmth and tightness, all of which mean the active ingredients are penetrating and getting to work on rejuvenating the lower layers of the skin.

Following treatment, resurfacers generally have little-to-no downtime, where as up to 10 days of downtime should be expected after undergoing chemical peel treatment. Immediately after both chemical peel or resurfacer treatment your skin may feel warm, red and tight. After resurfacers these side effects usually subside in a day or two with little more than light flaking of skin, however chemical peels induce a significant peeling of the skin at the treatment site on days 2-7, which usually resolves itself by days 8-10. Following each procedure aftercare products are supplied to promote healing. Written aftercare advice will be provided along with recommended homecare products to ensure the best possible results are obtained.
