Sometimes, it can seem impossible to get to the beautiful skin you desire. But the good news is that there are minimally-invasive options for improving your skin to make it the envy of any room you walk into. We offer a variety of different chemical peel treatments at My Cosmetic Clinic in Sydney, NSW that can remove imperfections from your skin and keep it glowing every month.

 

How Long Do Results Last After a Chemical Peel?

The different peels that you have to choose from last for different amounts of time when added to your skincare routine. The lighter of these peels tend to last for about one to two months, with follow-up treatments available to help continue to improve your skin’s appearance and health. Medium peels usually last for between two and six months, after which another light or medium peel can be used for upkeep.

 

Strong peels give the longest results and should only be performed a few times a year, with results typically lasting for years at a time. Your skin will improve with lasting results no matter which type of peel you decide to go with.

 

How To Prolong Your Results

To make the results you get from your peel even better, you can use professional skin care products that are high-quality and rich in nutrients. Your skin will better be able to absorb the beneficial properties of these products after you remove the layer of dead skin cells atop your skin with a peel.

 

Our expert team will be able to provide you with some personalized recommendations for products to use after we perform your treatment so that you can enjoy optimal results.

 

How Does a Chemical Peel Work?

To chemically exfoliate the skin, this type of skin care treatment utilizes a combination of acids and other anti-aging components. The different strengths of these peels can be used to improve your skin and improve certain types of skin conditions. The dead cells on top of your skin will be removed to reveal the revitalized, youthful-looking skin that lies underneath.

 

What Can a Peel Be Used To Treat?

A variety of different skin imperfections can be improved using this treatment. Poor skin tone or texture, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, melasma, hyperpigmentation, and dull skin are just some of the skin-related issues that can benefit from a peel.

 

More dramatic changes to your skin’s appearance come from using deeper peels. You’ll still get results using lighter peels, but deeper peels affect a more drastic change by impacting deeper layers of your skin. However, some skin types may not be suitable for the effects of a deep peel, so the various strengths of peel available can be used to treat different types of skin.

 

Peels That We Offer

Our clinic is proud to offer trusted and highly-esteemed skincare products, including a variety of peel treatments, in the line that SkinMedica offers. We can take years off of your appearance and transform your skin over time by using the rejuvenating benefits of these peels. Patients with all different kinds of skin care needs and skin types can benefit from the radiant glow achieved by using these treatments.

 

Illuminize Peel

All different skin types can benefit safely from this light type of peel. Focusing on the top layer of the skin, this type of treatment is also called a superficial peel. This treatment is the perfect option for anybody with sensitive skin that might not be suitable for stronger types of peel. The results this treatment offers are safe for anybody to enjoy.

 

Anyone looking for a convenient option with minimal downtime, or those who haven’t had a peel before and want a gentle introduction, are perfect candidates for this treatment. It takes about three treatments to achieve optimal results, and patients can have this treatment done every other week. Better skin tone and texture, smoothed-out imperfections, and relief for mild skin problems are some benefits of this treatment. You’ll achieve brighter, glowing skin without any downtime required.

 

Vitalize Peel

Anyone looking to repair sun damage to their skin or mitigate the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines can benefit from this treatment. The clarity and overall condition of your skin will be improved by this revitalizing treatment, restoring the balance to your skin to improve its visible texture.

 

You’ll start to see your desired results after between three and six treatments, and you can get this treatment done every three to four weeks. Your aesthetic goals and the condition of your skin going into treatment will influence these timeframes. Our team will review treatment details with you before beginning the process, which takes only about 20 minutes.

 

Rejuvenize Peel

The strongest peel that we can offer is called the Rejuvenize Peel. Reaching into the deep layers of your skin, the ingredients in this treatment combine to repair sun damage, improve skin health, and restore a youthful appearance.

 

Those dealing with acne, acne scars, or melasma can also see these issues alleviated as a result of treatment. The strength of this peel makes it one of the best solutions for anybody looking for drastic improvements to their skin imperfections or anyone with problematic skin conditions they need to treat.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Treatment Option Is Right for Me?

While you may not know the most effective treatment, you know exactly what the skin-related issues that you wish to treat are. That’s what makes your initial consultation with our experts so crucial. We’ll discuss your skin condition, your skincare history, and the goals and desires you have for treatment. Using all of that information, we’ll be able to provide you with a treatment that best matches your individual needs.

 

Will There Be Any Downtime?

There isn’t any downtime for light treatments such as the Illuminize Peel. Deeper peels do require some minimal amounts of downtime in order to get the best results. You’ll have more aftercare requirements to follow the deeper the peel that you get is, as a general rule of thumb.

 

Even deeper peels only require a minimal amount of downtime, so your everyday routine won’t be significantly impacted by any of these treatments. You won’t need to take any time off of work and can go right back to your normal daily activities.

 

Will My Skin Visibly Peel?

Not all chemical peel treatments leave signs of visible peeling on the surface of your skin. Stronger peels may cause some peeling to be noticeable, however. We’ll set clear expectations before you begin treatment so you know exactly what effects to expect from the specific treatment that you’ll receive.

 

However, don’t worry if you do notice any peeling. This is completely normal and just means that the treatment process is working. You shouldn’t pick at this peeling skin, however, as manually removing peeling skin can cause damage to your skin and lead to scarring.

 

Are At-Home Chemical Peel Treatments Effective?

Just about every in-office skincare treatment has some DIY alternative that can be performed at home. However, for a chemical peel, in particular, performing this treatment at home is not safe and we cannot recommend doing it.

 

There’s a reason that these products are only sold to licensed professionals. Only experts understand everything that goes into the treatment process to apply a peel safely. Performing such a treatment yourself can lead to damage to your skin or other unwanted side effects. Getting treatment at our clinic gives you the assurance that you’re being treated by a professional who knows how to choose the best treatment for your needs and who can apply it safely and effectively.

 

What Does Treatment Entail?

Most peels only take as long as a standard facial does, though your appointment may be longer if you choose to add any additional treatments. There’s usually a 20-minute treatment process to apply and remove a peel. We’ll use cooling mechanisms to reduce any discomfort you feel as a result of the peel, leaving you with nothing more than a tingling sensation. We’ll let the peel sit for the required time before removing it and providing aftercare instructions.

 

What Will I Need To Do After Treatment?

After chemical peel treatment, you’ll want to protect your skin from the sun as it is more vulnerable to damage after having the outer layer peeled away. Use a high-quality sunscreen anytime you’re going to be exposed to the sun’s rays. That will help you get the best results with younger, refreshed skin without the risk of developing new fine lines or wrinkles.

 

Perfect Your Skin with a Peel

Take your skincare routine to a higher level with ease using the benefits a peel offers you. All you’ll have to do is show up for your appointment and let our expert team and the quality products we employ do the rest.
