What do skin peels involve?
As the name suggests, a skin peel involves peeling back the outermost layers of skin; those which contain the damaged skin cells on the surface, with a view to removing minor skin conditions, light wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation. It is effectively a procedure that encourages exfoliation.
Peel solutions come in a range of strengths, with the most intense able to penetrate several skin layers in order to remove deeper blemishes. More superficial skin peels, will remove only the outer layer, but still give you a healthy glow and brighter skin tone.
During your appointment, the peel solution will be painted onto the targeted area of your skin and left there for a few minutes, before being washed away again. Afterwards your skin here may tingle and be slightly red. This will all settle down very quickly. Once the skin begins to peel around 6 days later, following a sensation of tightness, you’ll see the fresh, pink skin tissue underneath.
