Is your face still suffering the drying effects of winter? Are you sick of acne, fine lines and enlarged pores?

If you’re looking for a simple easy solution to all these problems The Australian Laser and Skin Clinic offer a select ion of chemical peels that can help with all these concerns.

Chemical peels regenerate and resurface the skin by removing the top layer of skin. This helps to produce collagen improving a number of skin issues such as sun-damaged skin, wrinkles, scarring and the overall appearance of the skin.

Chemical peels come in a number of different strengths depending on what they are treating and what skin type they will be treated on.

Superficial chemical peels are the mildest chemical peel and use compounds like glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or lactic acid to remove the outermost layer of skin. These chemical peels are best used for fine lines from sun exposure, sallow skin tone, pimples, blackheads and mild acne and superficial acne scars.

For a deeper chemical peel the Jessner’s peel uses a combination of the above acids and has been used for over thirty years. The Jessner’s chemical peel is still one of the most popular options for skin rejuvenation as it brings together alpha and beta hydroxy acids and one of the main ingredients of the Jessner chemical peel is salicylic acid that deeply penetrates the skin and removes congested sebum and dead skin cells. This chemical peel is amazing for skin that suffers from blackheads, acne, congestion, sun damage and pigmentation.

Swelling, redness and stinging are the most common side effect of a chemical peel. Most superficial chemical peels are safe and effective, whereas deeper chemical peels require careful pre-peel preparation and post-peel care.

Some factors to remember when having a chemical peel is if you have a darker skin tone you may encounter more post peel problems than those with lighter skin tones. Post inflammatory hyper pigmentation where the treated skin may become darker than the untreated skin could possible occur. Also remember that different skin problems respond to particular chemical peels. Acne, for example, responds well to our Jessner’ s peel as it is both oil soluble and penetrates deeper into oily and clogged pores, removing dirt and sebum. Wrinkles are best treated with our Ageless Chemical Peel designed for environmentally stressed, severely photo-damaged and pigmented skins. Always make sure you see a qualified therapist first to get the right information before going ahead with a chemical peel.
