What do chemical peels treat?
Chemical peels are a versatile treatment. They are safe and effective for addressing a number of concerns, including: acne, scarring (including acne scars), sun damage, melasma, hyperpigmentation, general skin discoloration, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, congested pores, and rough skin. Visible signs of ageing are diminished, giving skin remarkable vibrancy. A full consultation with SISU will determine the most suitable treatment for your skin's particular type and condition(s).
What's involved in a chemical peel?
Once your SISU aesthetic professional has determined the most suitable peel for you, your skin will be gently and completely cleansed. Next, a chemical peel solution comprised of phenol, trichloroacetic acid, and alpha-hydroxy acids is applied to skin. These powerful components, derived from natural sources like fruits and vinegar, combine to reveal fresh, younger skin without throwing skin out of balance. Once the peel has had time to activate, it will be removed and neutralised.
What are the benefits of a chemical peel?
Chemical peels excel at turning over dead, dull skin cells and revealing fresher, younger skin. As well reducing lines and wrinkles, chemical peels are an exceptional method of treating acne. In fact, chemical peels are impressive at reducing any kind of skin discoloration and unevenness. This includes scarring, hyperpigmentation, melasma, and sun damage.
Is there any down time?
The effectiveness of chemical peels, even at lighter strengths, will be accompanied by mild to moderate redness. This will subside within 12 to 24 hours. The redness from heavier peels can take slightly longer to disappear. While the treatment is well-tolerated and only mildly uncomfortable, some flaking of the skin is also to be expected. This is a result of the chemical peel's natural compounds expediently slough away tired, dead skin cells and reveal younger skin. SPF is mandatory post-peel.
