The idea of renewing or restoring one's skin is not new. Skin peels has been around since Cleopatra days where she used to bath in milk to beautify her skin. Nowadays the technique of peeling is more advanced and patients have more choices in the type of peels they want. Peels can range from superficial to deep. The deeper the peel the more downtime.
Glycolic and Lactic Acid Peels
Superficial peel like glycolic or lactic acid helps to give your skin a smoother, softer and refreshed skin. It can help to remove pigmentation, soften fine lines and improve acne. It is virtually a lunchtime treatment with very little downtime. Most patients tolerate the treatment well and report slight stinging or temporary redness as the only side effect. Not all glycolic acid preparations are the same, at Dermedica Dr Joanna Teh has carefully selected a physician's strength formulation that optimize treatment and produce consistently superb results. Dr Teh has years of experience with glycolic acid and is uniquely qualified to help you make the most of your skin using this particular treatment.
For people who can afford more downtime and prefer less frequent treatments, a deeper peel like Jessner peel can help you remove sun-damaged surface layers of your skin, fine lines, pigmentation and mild acne scarring. The healing time range from 5-10 days. It is an excellent, safe time tested procedure in the hands of a skilled physician such as ours.
After a series of skin peeling many of our patients experience an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles. It is wonderful for smoothing the look and feel of the skin so that makeup goes on more smoothly and lasts longer. Many of our patients find that they wear makeup less often as a result of the superb skin enhancement produced by a chemical peel.
