With skin peels, you can repair damage to the lower layers of your skin
Deeper chemical peels are designed to remove deeper problems, including stubborn pigmentation, acne scarring and deeper sun and age damage.
Peels can range from light freshening “Beauty Flashes” that enhance the colour, texture and smoothness of your complexion, to intermediate and deeper chemical peels. Deeper chemical peels are designed to remove deeper problems including stubborn pigmentation, acne scarring and deeper sun and age damage. Here at GMC Cosmedical we offer skin peels for those patients looking to smooth, freshen and enhance their complexion.
As well as face peels we can perform peels on other parts of the body including the:
Some of the common problems experienced here include dry and scaly wrinkling on the arms and legs, sunspots on the backs of hands and forearms, acne on the back and shoulders and sun damaged leathery skin across the chest.
All of the peels we use at our clinics are non-toxic and have additional beneficial effects on the skin. These benefits include;
The result is an obvious improvement in your appearance which will give a healthier and revitalised look. The treatment is also very effective in treating active acne as well as reducing chronic acne scarring. It forms an integral part of any acne treatment program to bring about rapid control in most cases and to minimise long-term complications such as scarring.
A medical consultation is first carried out to detect any skin or medical conditions that may influence the safe use of the program. You will be able to discuss with the team any specific concerns or needs you may have so that your programme is tailored to consider these and other factors such as your age, skin type and degree of damage.
We start with a one or two week home treatment course of daily applications of products to prepare your skin before the application of the peeling agents for a more even and predictable effect.
We offer a range of medical-grade skin peels that will differ in depth depending on your needs, available downtime, number of peels required, along with a host of other variables.
The process used is the application of a range of stronger products of medical peeling agents. This is applied directly to the skin which causes the skin to react resulting in significant peeling and shedding of deeper layers. The depth of the peel will depend upon the strength of the solution and number of layers applied as well as the method of its application (rubbing or massaging it onto the skin will make it penetrate deeper than simply brushing it on).
At the completion of your program you will continue on a home maintenance course using the appropriate products to maintain your improved skin appearance. Depending on your skin condition, some maintenance peels may be required at intervals to keep your skin at its optimum. It is recommended to avoid sun-exposure by wearing the appropriate protective head gear and by using a water-based broad spectrum sunscreen. Sun baking is not on! Sensible skin care can be discussed with Dr Calfas, Madeline and Maree.
Most concerns have more than one course of treatment. Feel free to contact us so one of our team can discuss options for your unique concern.
