What are chemical peels?

We get asked this question a lot and the term “chemical peels” can be somewhat daunting for some of our clients, so we are going to put your mind at rest and explain what the Glo Peels are and exactly how they can help your skin.

In short… a chemical peel is simply a professional exfoliation treatment. And there are many different types to suit various skin needs.

At a Beau Boutique Skin Analysis Consultation, we will use our VISIA skin scanning booth to carry out a detailed analysis of your face to determine the exact condition of your skin.

The Visia skin analysis system is used to evaluate the following areas affecting complexion health and appearance:

  • Wrinkles
  • Skin discolorations
  • Pores
  • Skin tone consistency
  • UV spots
  • Bacteria and oil

The system also compares one client’s skin health to the skin of other women in the same age range and of similar ethnicities. This helps our clients understand the current condition of their skin more thoroughly, so they can make better choices about the products and treatments they choose.

We will then talk you through the results and detailed information that the VISIA system provides and go on to recommend exactly which treatments or chemical peels are both suitable and most effective for your skin type or conditions.

The Visia skin analysis is considered one of the most thorough evaluations of the skin available today which is why we use it at Beau Boutique, because only the best will do for our clients.

The lowdown on chemical peels

How do chemical peels work?

Utilising innovative technology and cutting edge research, Glo Skin chemical peels are designed with potent concentrations of active ingredients to clinically transform the skin.

A chemical peel is also known as chemical exfoliation. It is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, décolleté or hands.

Peels vary in strength and therefore the number of treatments needed to deliver optimal results and the associated downtime of the treatment, will depend on the strength of the peel and the acid used.

Chemical Peels - what you need to know!

Chemical Peels – your questions answered…

The treatment

A chemical peel is a topical solution applied to the skin to soften the dead skin layer and exfoliate the skin.

Once those dead and damaged skin cells peel away a clearer, smoother and more youthful appearance is restored.

Dependent on the peel solution being used and the clients skin type, peels can be used to treat the following:

  • Fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
  • Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging
  • Treat certain types of acne
  • Reduce the appearance of age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma)
  • Improve the appearance of dull skin that will appear more radiant and rejuvenated post peel. Rough or uneven skin will become smoother

Glo chemical skin peels work superficially within the skin producing minimal downtime.

Before you get a chemical peel

Following your skin analysis consultation and dependent on your skin type and concern and peel formulation we may recommend pre-treatment with specific products.

If this is the case, one of our skincare experts will give full details and advice at your consultation as well as mapping out a schedule of treatments in order to give you the best results.

It is very important to follow your bespoke instructions to ensure sufficient pre-treatment preparation has been carried out prior to your procedure.

What happens during a chemical peel?

The peel solution will be applied to the skin. One of our skincare experts will monitor your individual response to the treatment and this will determine the length of your treatment based on your level of comfort and key skin responses to the peel solution.

During your peel you may experience slight discomfort which may include stinging, burning, itching, tingling or a heat-like sensation.

After the prescribed application time the peel solution may be chemically neutralised to end the treatment although not all solutions require neutralising.

What happens after the treatment?

Initially your skin may be red and feel sensitive. Some patients experience stinging, burning, itching, mild pain or discomfort, tightness.

These are all normal and expected results.

It is important to remember that unlike other peels, you do not have to see visible flaking or peeling of the skin to achieve desired results.

You may notice that your skin feels rough over the next couple of days due to enhanced exfoliation/light peeling.

Many people experience fresh, clean glowing skin post peel, and the short term results are a bonus as the aim of the peel treatments is long term skin health through a course of treatments and home care.

The expected duration of ‘downtime’ is given as guidance only and it is worth noting that the skins response to chemical peeling may vary from client to client.

Although the anticipated downtime for superficial peels is considered to be 1 – 3 days, in exceptional circumstances, clients may experience peeling for several days or even weeks afterwards.

This will be discussed with you in more detail at your consultation.

Homecare advice

After a chemical peel the skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sunlight and other sources of UV light (tanning beds etc.), so it is recommended to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen every day.

One of our skincare experts will recommend products for your post-treatment care.

Textural smoothening and improvements with acne prone skin can occur with 1 to 3 peels. Deeper textural changes require multiple peels. Noticeable improvements usually occurs following 3 to 6 peels.

The most severe skin issues can take longer to improve. Results are best achieved in a series of treatments and may be combined with other types of aesthetic treatments to get the best possible outcome for your skin.

Contraindications of chemical peels

Relative contraindications are determined by the skin type of the client and the problem being treated. We will discuss these factors with you at your pre-treatment consultation.

Some conditions will prevent you from receiving a chemical peel treatment. These are known as absolute contraindications and include the following:

  • Active bacterial, viral, fungal, or herpetic infection
  • Recent surgery or open wounds
  • History of drugs with photosensitizing potential
  • Pre-existing inflammatory dermatoses (e.g. psoriasis, atopic dermatitis)
  • Facial cancers (especially facial melanoma)
  • Clients who are unwilling to comply with a strict UV protection protocol post-treatment.
  • Patients undergoing Roaccutane (isotretinoin) treatment – current or within the past six months
  • Clients who are pregnant or breast feeding
