Just like any other organ of the body, the skin is an organ that should be taken care of to ensure proper physical health. It is the barrier between the body’s vital organs and the natural world, which is often full of airborne diseases and viruses that threaten the human body on the daily. Skincare is just as important as keeping the heart, brain, and other vital organs healthy, and one technique to maintain or rejuvenate skin is to use chemical peels. We use them at Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Centre for restoring and rejuvenating patients’ skin and appearance. Explore the possibilities during a consultation with our team in Australia in Brisbane, the Gold Coast, or Melbourne!
About Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are a non-invasive form of skincare, synonymous to applying viscous creams that settle into pores to remove dirt and oil that would otherwise lead to conditions such as acne or dry and chapped skin. The difference is that once chemical peels use formulas that are not available over the counter.
Chemical peels are applied at a specific quantity and spread evenly over the epidermis by a trained professional. Then, the chemical is dried to solidify on the skin. Afterward, the chemical is peeled or rubbed off using another solution to disintegrate it. This takes away the damaged layers of the epidermis, leaving behind fresh and new looking skin.
Types of Chemical Peels
Chemical peels come in different varieties with their own formulas, where some peels are only used to exfoliate the skin for a brighter appearance, and others penetrate deep below the epidermis to treat more serious skin conditions. The conditions chemical peels can treat include, but are not limited to:
- Rough patches
- Irregular pigmentation
While these treatments can be useful in removing blemishes, fixing facial lines, or reducing signs of aging, there are other forms of treatments for those purposes, and we recommend a consultation with our team at one of our three locations across Australia to learn more.
Much like any other procedure involving treating your body, undergoing chemical peel treatment requires a solid commitment and ability to follow through with the goal of taking proper care of one’s skin. An ideal candidate would be someone who has a skin condition similar to the treatable conditions listed above and is in good health otherwise. Both men and women can benefit from chemical peels.
The treatment is not the end-all-be-all of skin conditions. Upkeep of the results requires attention and care, as recommended by a physician, to prolong the results of the treatment.
