History Of Chemical Peels

Chemical peels have their foundation thousands of years ago in ancient Egypt. One of the earliest known treatments involved the application of abrasive tapes made from alabaster, honey and sour milk. Following the removal of the tape, the tightened skin was then abraded with finely ground sand. The Greeks then developed this further by using limestone, mustard and sulphurs.
In 1882 a German dermatologist further developed ways of peeling the skin. In the 1960s phenol peeling agents were introduced then on to the latter half of the 20th Century where TCA and AHA peels have been developed. These types of peels are used today to help to treat fine lines, wrinkles, acne, uneven texture and discolouration

Why Have A Chemical Peel?

Healthy skin is synonymous with youth and beauty. The skin is our outermost organ and serves as a unique identifier. We put great emphasis on how others perceive how we appear. We know and accept that we cannot halt the aging process but the good news is that not all damage is irreversible. Chemical peels rank in the top 5 non-surgical procedures and can used for rejuvenation, acne, acne rosacea, Melasma, Hyper pigmentation, Fine lines and wrinkles.

What Does It Involve?

The first stage in the process involves a medical history being taken and any questions or concerns you may have will be addressed. You will then have the peel solution applied, slight stinging might be experienced but this passes quickly. After the peel has been applied the nurse will give you a take-home aftercare kit and instructions (verbal and written).

Can Anyone Have A Chemical Peel?

There may be circumstances that mean you cannot have a chemical peel. For example, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you have an allergy to aspirin or any of the other ingredients. Any active skin conditions would also stop you from being able to have a peel at that time.
