The medium grade chemical skin peel is for patients who are willing to get the peel benefits with visible peeling and flaking. Peeling occurs 2-4 days after the peel and lasts up to a week.

What are the benefits?

- Softening the appearance of age spots

- Reduction of freckles or superficial blemishes

- Enhance natural glow and increase skin smoothness

- Improve the hydration of weathered and sun-damaged skin

- Correct uneven skin pigmentation

- Treat acne and soften the appearance of scars caused by acne

How is treatment administered?

The procedure involves a medium grade chemical solution that is applied to the skin. The solution causes the layer of skin to separate and peel off. The new regenerated skin underneath is usually smoother, less wrinkled and more even in both tone and colour than the old skin.

How long does the treatment take?

Typically the skin is first thoroughly cleansed. Then your doctor will carefully apply the medium grade chemical solution. You may feel a slight stinging sensation as the peel solution is applied, but the feeling will quickly pass. Generally, pain medication is not required. When the desired depth is achieved, a neutralising anti-inflammatory cream will be applied. This will neutralise the burning sensation. An immediate flushing and areas of frosted skin result but this returns to its normal colour in 15-30 minutes. The medium grade chemical solution is then washed off the following morning with gentle soap and water. Make-up can be worn the following day and one can resume their normal activities immediately. A full face treatment usually takes no more than 15 minutes.

What can I expect in the week following the Medium Grade Chemical Skin Peel?

• Slight heat in the skin in the first 2 hours after treatment

• Tightening of the skin in the immediate 2-3 days; superficial layers of the skin may turn dark, become stiff and leathery

• Skin shedding/flaking from day 3 - for 3 or 4 days

• Stay out of the sun for minimum 2 weeks

• Wear high Sun Protection Factor of at least 30SPF for minimum of 2 weeks

How many time is the peel repeated?

Our Medium Grade Chemical Skin Peel is repeated every 7-14 days. Four consecutive treatments are recommended to achieve the desired effects.

Can I expect my skin to immediately improve after the treatment?

Depending on the severity of your sun damaged skin, you should expect moderate improvement in your appearance immediately. During the following several months, continued skin improvement will occur with the stimulation of new collagen resulting in smoother skin texture.

Are there any expected restriction following the treatment?

One can resume normal daily activities with some restrictions such as avoiding exposure to sunlight and prevention of tanning with recommended use of sunscreen or sunblock.

Patients who have received Medium Grade Chemical Skin Peel will be sensitive to the sun, and therefore it is crucial to properly protect the skin.
