A problem complexion can really knock your confidence. Issues such as acne scarring, sun damage, pigmentation, dullness, lines and wrinkles can all conspire to make you feel unhappy and insecure. Sometimes even a scrupulous daily skincare regime can’t solve these sorts of problems. Fortunately, Courthouse Clinics offers a number of advanced aesthetic treatments that can help.
A chemical peel is an excellent choice for anyone looking to instantly improve the appearance of their skin. Tere are lots of different types of peel available – and different strengths – so they can be tailored to address a variety of skin conditions and concerns.
How does a chemical peel work?
As the name suggests, a chemical peel uses a chemical solution to remove the top layer of dead or damaged skin from the surface, to kick-start the repair process and rejuvenate your complexion.
Most work in similar ways. Typically, your skin will be cleansed and prepped by one of our specialist aestheticians. The peel solution will then be applied evenly onto the skin, and allowed to work its magic. Next the solution is neutralised and carefully removed. The final stage is an aftercare plan – usually discussed before starting treatment – which allows you to care for your skin at home as it heals.
What can a chemical peel treat?
Lots of things! Peels are designed to revitalise a dull, dry or damaged complexion, and tackle common problems such as:
- Acne and other blemishes
- Age spots and hyperpigmentation
- Dullness and uneven skin tone
- Milia (milk spots)
- Lines and wrinkles
And they aren’t effective just on the face. A chemical peel can also be used on the neck, back, décolletage and hands.
To make sure we tailor treatment to each individual, Courthouse Clinics has created a unique Skin Health Assessment that uses UV Scanner Imaging Technology. This allows our medical aestheticians to select the best possible chemical peel for your particular skin concern, using a range of products from professional brands Medik8Ò and Elizabeth Arden PRO.
Chemical peels are a great way to give your skin a pre-holiday boost (just make sure you factor in sufficient recovery time and don’t forget to use sun protection afterwards). So don’t delay and make that appointment today – fresher, flawless summer skin awaits.
