A facial peel is a skin treatment to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne, scarring, redness, and sun damage.
Facial peels, also known as chemical peels, are cosmetic treatments that use acids to exfoliate, brighten, and rejuvenate the skin on your face. They remove the top layers of your skin so that new smoother skin grows back.
There are three types of facial peels. They are:
A facial peel can improve many skin issues, including scarring, hyperpigmentation, dehydration, dullness, uneven skin texture, acne and rosacea, and fine lines and wrinkles. It removes dead skin and allows new skin cells to grow.
The best type of facial peel will depend on your skin type and your skin care needs.
If you have skin issues that only affect the top layer of your skin, a superficial facial peel will be recommended. However, if you have deeper wrinkles or a scar, your dermatologist may recommend a deep facial peel.
It is best to visit an experienced and qualified dermatologist to determine the best facial peel for you.
Facial peels use a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of dead skin on your face. This chemical exfoliation stimulates cell turnover. It unclogs pores, smoothes wrinkles, and corrects skin discolouration. It leaves your facial skin with a vibrant glow.
The facial peel is applied to the surface of your skin and targets the top layers to remove dead skin cells. This “controlled trauma” to your skin stimulates new cell and collagen growth.
The costs of a facial peel will depend on your individual requirements, the exact peel you have, if further treatment is required to achieve your desired results, and your Ramsay hospital of choice.
Following your consultation, you will be advised of the cost of your facial peel treatment. This formal quote will be valid for 60 days.
We offer a number of finance options to pay for your facial peels, including 0% finance and pay-as-you-go.
The recovery process after a facial peel will depend on the type of peel you have.
If you have a light, superficial facial peel, your skin may feel tight for a couple of hours afterward. If you have a medium-depth facial peel, your skin may look red/brown for a few days afterward and may take up to six weeks to return to normal. For patients having a deep facial peel, you can expect some peeling and discomfort for a few days, swelling for up to two weeks, and redness for up to three months.
At Ramsay, we offer a variety of leading facial peels, including superficial, medium, and deep peels. They exfoliate your dead facial skin cells and stimulate new ones to grow. Our facial peels result in fresher, clearer, brighter, and smoother skin.
Qualified and experienced dermatologists are available at your local Ramsay hospital to treat your facial skin issues with chemical peels. They will determine the best type of facial peel for you based on both your skin type and your individual skin care needs.
