Time for… renewal.
Peel away the signs of skin ageing
What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a minimally invasive procedure that helps improve the appearance of the skin. During the procedure, your doctor carefully applies combinations of powerful solutions to the skin of the face, décolletage (neck and chest), or hands to remove dead skin cells. The solution penetrates into the skin, causing dead skin cells to peel off. The new skin is smoother and more refined looking. There are many types of chemical peel preparations, and the right preparation for you depends on your skin type and desired results.
Two types of peel are used at this clinic.
OBAGI BLUE PEEL RADIANCE MEDI-LUXE
Prof MacKenzie uses the Obagi Blue Peel Radiance™ Medi-Luxe to improve overall skin quality including hydration, skin plumping, evenness and lightening of pigmentation.
This is a 20% salicylic acid peel with little downtime and mild peeling after around 3 days. A cocktail of patient specific ingredients will be applied immediately after the peel, e.g. vitamin C serum, retinol and spf50.
It is important to stop treatments with vitamin A products such as retinol or tretinoin, also alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy acid treatments at least three days prior to treatment as this will cause excessive peeling. High factor SPF must also be used after the procedure.
As this is a light peel the risk of complications is very low. Clients with an aspirin allergy cannot have this treatment.
