Chemical Peel treatment is peeling of the skin using chemical peels to remove the outer layers of the skin and to accelerate the removal of old, dead skin cells at the surface of the skin to promote new cell growth, and can be used to treat a particular area (such as lines around the eyes or mouth), or all over the face, arms, hands and neck at our Harley Street clinic.
Many skin problems are due to an excessive build up of dead skin cells, which make the skin thick and dull, usually clogging the pores. Skin chemical peels can effectively treat ageing skin, sun damage and reduce hyper pigmentation. As a result the skin will appear smoother, healthier and plumper after chemical peel treatment.
Cleopatra and the ancient Romans used various food acids to peel their skin. In the early 1900s, women underwent 'non-medical' peels in salons with secret formulae, which were probably mild acids.
In the early 1950s, the phenol peel was developed. This was a deep chemical peel that could remove years of wrinkles, but also gave peeling a reputation for complications, such as pigmentation, depigmentation, scarring and even abnormal heart rhythms due to absorption of the deep chemical peels. However, deep chemical peel treatment (phenol chemical peeling) at Harley Street clinic is carried-out under controlled conditions by an experienced doctor is safe and effective.
Trichloroacetic acid, being a gentler chemical peel acid, has made a comeback in popularity, it rejuvenates the skin without the risk of serious side effects.
