We love that you trust us with your skin cares and concerns, and are proud that we can help elevate your complexion from ‘tired to transformed’ with carefully selected, expertly targeted facial aesthetic treatments – including skin peels – right here at our Suffolk aesthetics clinic.
When it comes to chemical peels, we know only the highest quality, most trusted names and treatments will do. That’s why we offer some of the best in the industry, helping give you the radiant, refreshed complexion you’re looking for.
Because we believe in honesty and integrity, we’ve dedicated this post to giving you an overview of the pros and cons of our chemical peels. So, when it comes to booking in for your skin peel, you’ll know what to expect!
Pro: easy prep & aftercare
Before and after your skin peel, it’s important to take care of your skin. Here are our recommendations:
- Follow a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, and drink plenty of water
- Exercise little and often, but don’t overdo it!
- Try to quit smoking, and cut down on drinking alcohol, if you can
- Follow a daily skincare routine (we can advise you on the best products)
- Stay sun-protected (think SPF15+, sun hat, and avoiding the sun at its hottest)
- Never, ever pick at your skin (even when it’s peeling!)
Con: mild side-effects
Chemical peels do just what they say – peel away layers of skin. So, some redness and sensitivity should be expected with the treatment. However, we emphasise that this should be ‘mild’ and it doesn’t typically last beyond a few days. You may experience some tingling and tightness too, but these are signs that your skin peel is doing its wonderful work below the surface – getting ready to reveal all!
Con: several treatments needed
Unfortunately, skin peels aren’t a quick fix for your skin and need some time to work their magic. We also recommend a course of treatments – usually 4-6 – to really resurface skin from within. While this can be tricky for some as it does require a level of commitment beyond other anti-ageing treatments such as dermal fillers, it’s really worth it – and your skin will thank you.
Pro: enjoy smoother skin
Our skin peels are well-known for their anti-ageing powers, as fine lines and wrinkles can be softened as old and dead skin cells are gently swept away. You could also experience slightly tighter skin, which helps with lines in areas like the eyes and mouth, without the need for injectables.Pro: a bright, beautiful complexion
Another benefit of our chemical peels is more radiant skin, and they can also help correct hyperpigmentation (such as dark patches and age spots) and problems such as acne scarring.
