What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel (or a skin peel) is a resurfacing treatment that improves the appearance of skin.

Our skin cells reproduce every month. For healthy skin, you must exfoliate the old dead skin cells away. A lack of exfoliation leaves the skin dry, dehydrated and dull. A chemical peel is the perfect exfoliation treatment to loosen and lift away all the dead skin cells. It will stimulate new skin cell growth. It also encourages the skin to produce collagen and hyaluronic acid.

The benefits of a chemical peel are a smoother skin, a brighter glowing complexion and an improved skin tone and texture.

Will a Chemical Peel suit me?

There are different peel solutions to suit all skin types. In order to ensure a healthy, fresh, glowing skin, many people get a skin peel treatment a few times a year. Or, many clients choose to have one to brighten their skin for important events. While others opt for a peel treatment to target ageing skin, rosacea, teenage acne, adult acne, open pores or pigmentation.

What type of peel TREATMENT is best for me?

It is not a one size fits all approach. There are multiple types of chemical exfoliants eg salicylic acid, glycolic acid, malic acid etc. There are also varying degrees of depth. One can get a very superficial peel or a deep peel. Some prefer to opt for a mild treatment with no downtime and some like advanced treatments to target ageing or acne.

As an Aesthetic Nurse, I have trained in a wide range of skin peels, including advanced medical-grade skin peels. I offer a bespoke chemical peel treatment at my clinic in Oranmore. So, the treatments will be tailored to suit you.

I hope this offers an insight into peel treatments. For more information feel free to get in contact or book an appointment here.
