Chemical peel as a cosmetic treatment is achieved by applying a solution of alpha hydroxyl acids, phenol or trichloroacetic acid to the skin to make it smoother and less wrinkled. Once applied, the chemical solution will make the skin blister and peel off hence getting rid of an old dry damaged skin and leaving behind a smooth, rejuvenated skin.
The skin peel is one of the most ancient but very effective cosmetic procedure. It was practised in some of the world’s earliest civilisations such as Rome, Egypt and Greece.

Chemical peels performed at BeauSynergy Skin and Beauty Clinic Hertfordshire can be used for the following reasons;
Before getting a skin peel, there are a few things that you should be aware of. For instance, you need to tell your doctor if you have a history of scarring sores or a facial X-ray. Antibiotics and other antiviral drugs could also come in handy when preparing for a chemical peel. How deep the skin peel is going to go will depend on a number of factors but most importantly the extent of your skin condition and what you aim to achieve from the chemical peel.
A lot of people can reap numerous skin benefits from a chemical peel but most ideally, people with a fair skin and light hair are the best candidates. If you have a different skin pigmentation or hair colour, you can also get improved results from the skin or chemical peel. You will be proud of your skin once you go through a chemical peel procedure with the goal of alleviating acne, improving your skin texture, getting rid of wrinkles, eliminating age spots and generally reducing the visible effects of sun damage.
Deep chemical peels can also be effective in patients who would like to correct blemishes, minimise precancerous growth or reduce coarse wrinkles. This procedure is a little different from the normal skin peel because it involves a longer recovery time which can last up to months.
There is a host of factors you should account for before considering to get a deep chemical peel. To begin with, if you have darker skin, it might be an excellent idea to get a deep peel. Similarly, folks with heart problems should thoroughly reconsider their options before deciding to get a deep skin peel. You must also be aware that the procedure itself takes hours, unlike most other cosmetic procedures.
There are also other medical considerations that should prepare you for a deep chemical peel procedure including not smoking. Note therefore that smoking is not only bad for your lungs but also for your skin. Most importantly, you can achieve the best results by avoiding active skin infections and acne medications such as Accutane. Large, unusual scar formations can be a hindrance to optimal results and could also pose a health risk. Thus, it is advisable to consider an alternative treatment other than a deep chemical peel.
It is very rare for a chemical peel procedure to result in any serious health complications, but this does not mean that no risks exist entirely. The possible risks and side effects of a chemical or skin peel procedure might include, swelling, infection, scarring, outbreaks of cold sores and changes in your skin tone.
There are things you can do to reduce the side effects of a chemical peel procedure, and the foremost is to follow your doctor’s instructions to the latter. For instance, the doctor might recommend you use a retinoid cream such as tretinoin to help shorten your treatment time as well as speeding up the healing process.
