Medical Chemical Skin Peels: Taking Skin Care to the Next Level - Chester Wellness Centre

Skin care professionals are always looking for ways to improve the appearance of their client’s skin. One popular treatment is medical, chemical skin peels. These treatments are used to exfoliate the skin’s surface layer and help reduce wrinkles and improve texture and tone. We explore the benefits of chemical skin peels, the different types of peels, safety and side effects, and the Agera Rx Peel.

Benefits of Chemical Skin Peels

Chemical skin peels most common benefits include reducing wrinkles and fine lines, treating acne, reducing the appearance of age spots, lightening dark circles under the eyes, improving overall complexion by evening out discolouration or hyperpigmentation due to sun damage, as well as clearing up blemishes and other marks on the face. These treatments can help improve the skin’s overall appearance, leaving it looking smoother, clearer and more youthful. Additionally, chemical peels can treat uneven pigmentation caused by ageing or overexposure to sunlight which may lead to premature ageing, such as age spots or melasma. After undergoing these treatments, patients are often surprised with how much brighter their complexion appears, with improved texture and tone plus a reduction in any wrinkles they may have had before treatment began.

Types of Peels and How They Work

Chemical skin peels are available in three strengths: superficial, medium, and deep. Each type of peel works differently to provide different results.

Superficial peels are the mildest type of peel and are made up of ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) or beta hydroxy acids (BHA). These peels exfoliate the surface layer of the skin to reduce wrinkles and improve texture.

Medium peels usually contain trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or glycolic acid. These peels penetrate deeper into the skin than superficial peels to treat deeper wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, and other issues.

Deep peels contain ingredients such as phenol or salicylic acid. These peels are the strongest medical chemical peel penetrating the deepest into the skin. Deep peels often treat severe wrinkles, sun damage, or pre-cancerous growths.

Safety and Side Effects

While skin peels can provide many benefits, they can also cause side effects if not used properly. It is essential to discuss any potential risks or side effects with a qualified professional before undergoing any treatment. Proper preparation and aftercare are necessary to ensure safe and effective results.

Common side effects include redness, swelling, itching, stinging, dryness, flaking, or scabbing. These effects should subside within a few days after the treatment. It is also important to note that deeper peels can cause more intense side effects, such as scarring or discolouration.

Agera Rx Peel

Agera Rx is a professional-grade medical chemical peel system designed by qualified skin care professionals. The system includes a range of products that can be used to customise treatments for individual clients.

Agera Rx is safe and easy to use with minimal downtime or irritation for clients. The products can also be combined with other treatments, such as microdermabrasion or light therapy, for improved results.
