Chemical Peels

Sun exposure, acne or just ageing can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred. A chemical peel is something to consider if you want your skin to look smoother and younger. It uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers.Although there are products which can now be bought to perform a Chemical peel yourself at home, it is much safer to use a trained nurse or practitioner to administer the peel. At Renatus Clinic, near Coventry, the fully trained Practitioner would discuss all options and provide all necessary information about Chemical peels and how they work, and answer any questions you may have.

A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Chemical peels are most commonly used on the face, but they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck or hands. Chemical peels are used to treat can range of conditions from acne or acne scarring, age or liver spots, fine lines or wrinkles, freckles, irregular skin pigmentation, scars, sun-damaged skin, rough skin or skin with scaly patches. It is important to remember that peels bought for home use will not be comparable in strength to those used by beauty clinics.

At Renatus Clinic in Rugby we have a variety of Chemical Peels on offer, of a variety of strengths to treat different conditions. The Practitioner will cleanse the skin and then apply the chemical solution. It is brushed onto the skin and left for a few minutes. A warm to hot sensation may be felt along with some burning or stinging. The treated area will look pink, by day three four the treated area may start to peel or flake. The healing time depends on the strength of the peel used. Sun exposure is not advised for several months after treatment to protect the fresh new layer of skin and a high factor SPF must be applied to protect the skin.
