Chemical Skin Peels Geelong
Chemical Skin Peels have been used for over 100 years to create an even and controlled shedding of built up or damaged skin cells. Although our skin is able to replace old cells, with new one’s overtime this natural exfoliating process begins to slow down. A peel involves using a solution applied to the skin to remove dead skin cells in the upper layer of skin and stimulate the production of new skin cells. It unblocks pores, tightens the skin, reduces wrinkling, reduces superficial pigmentation and restores a more youthful appearance. Each year thousands of peels are performed in Australia.
Peels are most often performed on the face but may also be beneficial on other areas of the body including the backs of the hands, neck, chest and back.
What can chemical skin peels treat?
Peels can effectively improve a wide variety of skin conditions including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven pigmentation
- Shallow acne scars
- Sun-damaged skin
- Age spots
Do Chemical Skin Peels Hurt?
Most patients experience a warm to hot sensation, which may last as long as ten minutes. Reactions to peels are dependent on the type of peel undertaken. For superficial peels, there is immediate softening of the skin without any visible post treatment reddening, making them very popular as quick and effective ‘lunchtime’ treatments.
Why choose GVSL for Chemical Skin Peels?
