Chemical Peeling

Chemical peeling explained

Chemical peeling renews the skin by removing dead cells off the skin surface and stimulating the metabolism of new cells underneath. The result: an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as skin texture, tone and colour. Pigmentation is lightened, acne scars and pores are refined and the frequency of acne breakouts decreased. After treatment, the skin looks healthier, younger and more radiant.

Some of the reasons for having a chemical peel

All skin types and ages will benefit from chemical peeling, including patients with acne or sensitive skin.

Chemical peeling can be performed on the face and body (the most common areas being the hands, face and chest), and is seen as a perfect complement for a number of medical aesthetic procedures. It cannot, however, correct sagging skin or stop the ageing process.

SUPERFICIAL PEELS

OPTIPHI® Skin Rejuvenation Glycolic Peel (25-35%)

Glycolic acid has been proven to be a great exfoliant, stimulating cellular activity, evening out skin tone, improving fine lines and the appearance of sun-damage as well as improving the elasticity and firmness of the skin. Glycolic acid also increases the synthesis of collagen and has a rejuvenating effect on the skin. A smoother, brighter complexion is revealed resulting in more youthful skin.

This peel is mild and gentle, so you won’t experience any “skin peeling” and there isn’t any downtime so you can have a peel during lunchtime and return to work without anyone knowing.
If your skin shows substantial damage from aging, past or current skin conditions or injury, it may be necessary to undergo more than one chemical peel. Sunninghill Aesthetics will provide the proper advice in this regard. Maintenance treatments are recommended for long-term results.

Sunninghill Aesthetics also offers OPTIPHI® Medical Skin Rejuvenation 50% peel for more serious cases of ageing, sun damage and pigmentation.
At-home products from the Optiphi range can be ordered on request.

Skintech Easy Phytic Solution (AHA peeling)

This superficial peel contains slow-release alpha-hydroxy acids that target the epidermal layer, while promoting deeper dermal stimulation. It works well for early photo-ageing, dry skin and superficial melasma, and is particularly beneficial for teenage acne, removing the top layer of the skin to reduce congestion and breakouts.

There might be slight redness after the treatment but this will subside in 12 hours.

It can be used as a once-off peel to immediately rejuvenate and refresh the skin. A series of at least six treatments are recommended for optimal results. This peel should be repeated on a weekly basis to control active acne.
