Chemical Peels in Perth – Exfoliating Treatment at Restoration Clinic

Our skin tends to lose that youthful glow as we age. We can develop skin laxity, texture issues and hyperpigmentation from years of sun exposure. This is especially true in Perth where the sun is strong and UV radiation index remains high all year round. Sun damage and skin ageing are not the only conditions, however, that can detract from our appearance. Chronic acne and acne scarring are also very common complaints, especially for teenagers and young adults. Acne scars come in several types including pigmented (red or brown) and pitted (ice pick scars).

A highly effective and economical solution for addressing many skin imperfections is to undergo a series of chemical skin peels to reveal a healthy new complexion. Chemical peels are cosmetic procedures using a blend of pharmaceutical-strength ingredients to gently exfoliate the dermal layers and encourage cellular regeneration and collagen synthesis. Chemical peels in Perth are available in various strengths, ranging from superficial to deep, and can dramatically improve skin tone, smoothness, texture, luminosity and overall appearance with minimal downtime and discomfort. Combined with a high-quality skincare regimen available at Restoration Clinic, the results of your peel can last much longer and keep your skin looking healthier for many years.

Which Areas Can Be Treated with Chemical Peels at Perth-based Restoration Clinic?

Chemical peels can be used on most areas of the face and body. They can effectively rejuvenate skin on the arms, hands, legs, feet, neck, chest, back and even stomach. When done on the body, chemical peels can improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, acne, various scars and create a smoother, more youthful surface. Stronger chemical peels are helpful for reducing stubborn bumps on the backs of the arms known as keratosis pilaris. A big advantage of chemical peels is that they are highly versatile for all ethnicities and skin types. Learn more about chemical peels by contacting us at Restoration Clinic in Perth.

Which Chemical Peels Are Available at Restoration Clinic?

If you are looking for a medical strength chemical peel, Perth-based Restoration Clinic can offer treatments in different strengths and formulations to address a number of skin conditions and concerns. Most peels are done in a series of 3-6 sessions to achieve appreciable results; however, stronger peels can produce excellent results after only one session. The following skin peels are available at our clinic (except very deep skin peels):

Mild Skin Peels

Are ideal for treating fine lines, dry and dehydrated skin, acne and very mild pigmentation issues. Mild skin peels can be derived from citrus fruits (citric acid), sugar cane (glycolic acid) and milk products (lactic acid). Generally speaking sugar cane and milk acid peels are the most popular peels for cosmetic improvement. Milk acid is quite superficial and tends to be less irritating. Sugar cane acids penetrate deeper and can produce more “sting” when applied. Mild skin peels vary in strength from 15% to 70% so they can address a wide range of skin conditions.

Mild-Medium Skin Peels

Are available in various strengths and formulations, and can be used on sensitive/sensitized skin and even those with rosacea. These peels are typically made with a combination of naturally-occurring and synthetic skin acids. Blending acids of various strengths allows them to penetrate deeper. Mild-medium skin peels can help brighten and smooth the complexion, minimizing lines and wrinkles. Mild-Medium peels on the stronger side contain agents that facilitate exfoliation by breaking down the “glue” that holds skin cells together. This can produce more dramatic skin rejuvenation results and faster healing.

Medium-Deep Skin Peels

Can also range in potency and ingredients. They can be administered alone or in combination with other acids. Medium-deep skin peels that are based on Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) or high in concentration are typically administered by a medical professional. These skin peels are ideal for treating more advanced cases of premature skin aging, fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, uneven skin texture, pigment issues and sun damage.

Very Deep Skin Peels (Not available at Restoration Clinic)

Are the strongest and with the most discomfort and longest recovery time. For this reason they are almost always administered by a physician. The strength of these peels is determined by the concentration of actives used and the addition of other acids. For most people just one very deep skin peel is sufficient to provide dramatic improvement in skin texture and laxity, as well as overall facial rejuvenation. Results are long-lasting as long as patients are diligent when it comes to using sun protection.

How Do I Know Which Chemical Peel is Right for Me?

The best way to determine which skin peel is most suited for you is to schedule a personalised assessment at Restoration Clinic. Our highly experienced doctors will carefully examine your complexion and review your health history. The benefits of each peel will then be explained and you’ll be advised on the most suitable course of treatment to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Depending on the type of peel recommended, you may need only one or a series of treatments. Keep in mind that mild peels have little downtime whereas stronger peels may require weeks of recovery time, days off work and can carry a higher risk for side-effects and complications. These and all the other aspects of the treatment will be fully covered during your appointment.

Chemical Peel in Perth – What Can I Expect After the Procedure?

Depending on the strength of your peel, you will experience a different level of downtime. Immediately post treatment with a light or medium peel your skin will feel tight and look slightly pink or red. The redness and blotchiness can last a few days and your skin will look its best after several weeks. You may or may not experience skin peeling, again depending on the strength of the formulation. Medium-deep skin peels can produce more discomfort such as redness, swelling and peeling. The very deep skin peels are even more aggressive and require sedation and pain management. At Restoration Clinic we do not offer very deep skin peels but we can help you with mild to medium peels.
