Skin peels are a great way to help with the aging process and to improve skin tone, texture and appearance. There are many different types of skin peels that can be done in our clinics, so it’s important to discuss your options with your doctor or specialist when deciding which one is best for you.
Do you have age spots or wrinkles?
You may have age spots if you notice brown or black spots on your skin. Age spots are caused by sun exposure and can appear anywhere on the body, but they most often occur on the face and hands. If you have genetics that make you more sensitive to sun exposure, these spots may also be a result of this factor.
As we age, our bodies produce less melanin (the pigment responsible for giving our skin its color). This can cause the skin to become lighter in tone as we get older, leading to freckles or age spots. While certain people are more prone to developing them than others because of their genetic makeup, aging is still one of the largest contributing factors here—so even if you aren’t genetically predisposed toward getting them anyway!
Are you prone to acne or breakouts?
Acne is a condition that affects the skin and can leave you with scars that can last a lifetime. Acne occurs when oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells block the pores in your skin. The blocked pore creates an infection called acne which causes redness, swelling, tenderness and pain in your skin.
Acne treatments may include antibacterial creams or lotions applied directly on the affected area; oral antibiotics such as tetracycline or minocycline taken by mouth; retinoids (vitamin A derivatives) applied to the skin or taken by mouth to reduce inflammation; chemical peels like salicylic acid applied to remove damaged outer layers of the epidermis (the top layer of your skin). Your doctor may recommend that you use one type of treatment at a time or combine two types together for better results.
Do you have blackheads or whiteheads?
You’ve probably heard the term “blackheads,” but what about whiteheads? They’re both clogged pores that can be easily removed by a trained aesthetician. Blackheads are caused by excess oil and dead skin cells, while whiteheads lack the extra oil and are usually filled with pus (a sign of infection). Both types of blemishes can be treated by an expert to get rid of them, though blackheads are more common than whiteheads. If you have oily skin or breakouts often, it’s likely that you’ll experience more whitehead breakouts than your friend who has dry skin and fewer blemishes overall.
Do your skin pores look larger than usual?
If your skin pores look larger than usual, it could be a sign that you need to get a facial.
If this happens to you, there are two reasons why:
- Dead skin cells on the surface of the skin can build up and make them look larger than usual. If you aren’t exfoliating regularly, dead skin cells will build up in your pores and make them look bigger than they actually are. Your aesthetician can help remove these dead cells so that you have clean pores again!
- Oil and bacteria in combination with too much makeup can also cause buildup inside of your pore walls making them look large from both sides (inside & out).
Is your skin dry and rough?
If you have dry, rough, red or inflamed skin and are looking for a simple way to improve the look and feel of your skin, then a skin peel may be right for you. There are many different types of peels available but they all work in a similar manner.
Skin peels work by removing the outer layer of dead cells from the top layer of your epidermis (the top most layer). The newly exposed layers underneath contain fresh new cells that give you smoother, brighter and more radiant looking skin!
Is your skin dull, with a rough texture and an uneven tone?
If your skin is dull, with a rough texture and an uneven tone, then you may want to consider having a skin peel. Skin peels can help with removing fine lines and wrinkles by exfoliating the top layer of dead skin on your face. They’re also great for removing age spots, sun damage and acne scars.
Does your skin look red?
Redness is one of the first signs that you may have an underlying problem with your skin. Here are some common causes of redness:
- Sun damage. The sun’s UV rays can cause your skin to become inflamed and red. Get out of the sun as much as possible and wear sunscreen when you do go out!
- Acne or rosacea. These conditions both cause irritation and inflammation, which can lead to redness in the affected area(s).
- Eczema. This condition causes dry, itchy skin that might burn or sting when touched – just what we all want from a beauty treatment!
Is your skin sun damaged, showing enlarged dilated blood vessels and/or blotchy pigmentation spots?
If you’ve noticed that your skin looks blotchy and uneven, with enlarged blood vessels and pigmentation spots, then a chemical peel may help. Chemical peels can be used to treat all of these issues in one convenient package.
When we are exposed to the sun, our skin’s natural defense mechanisms work hard to repair damage done by UV rays and other environmental factors. However, in some cases, this process goes wrong and leads to discoloration or scarring on the face. Cosmetic procedures like chemical peels can help reduce these issues by removing unwanted layers from the top layer of skin using chemicals that cause exfoliation without damaging underlying tissue
Are you prone to hyper-pigmentation (dark spots) in certain areas of the face?
Are you prone to hyper-pigmentation (dark spots) in certain areas of the face?
Hyper-pigmentation is usually caused by sun damage and acne. It can also be a side effect of some medications. Hyper-pigmentation is not the same as melasma, which causes brown patches on the face that aren’t age related.
Melasma occurs when hormones are out of balance and melanocytes (the cells that give pigment to your skin) overproduce melanin pigments. Melanin protects us from UV rays, but too much can lead to dark patches on your face or body that can last for years if not treated properly!
Are you self-conscious of facial lines and crepey skin under your eyes or around the mouth?
When you’re looking at yourself in the mirror and seeing fine lines around your eyes and mouth, it’s easy to feel self-conscious about them. But what if I told you that those lines are an indication of ageing?
The skin around the eyes is thinner than the rest of the face, making it prone to dryness. The skin around the mouth is also thinner than the rest of your face, and because we use this area so often (think smiling or talking), it’s often prone to dryness as well. All this combined can lead to crepey skin (the technical term for saggy creases) around these areas.
Customised skincare peels can leave the you with more youthful beautiful radiant skin.
A customized skin peel can leave you with more youthful, beautiful radiant skin. In fact, skin peels are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed by Abigail at The skin Clinic. We have several types of peels within our skin clinic, so have am option for everyone.
Skin peels work by removing a layer of damaged skin cells that have built up over time. They leave your fresh new layers of healthy cells behind. As a result, your complexion is smoother and softer looking than it was before you began treatment. Skin peels are also effective at clearing acne scarring and other blemishes caused by sun damage or hormonal imbalances such as melasma (pregnancy mask), rosacea (irritated/inflamed facial redness) as well as hyperpigmentation due to aging or injury such as burns or scars from past surgeries like chemical peels done too aggressively for example which cause scarring under layers where there should be no scarring at all!
So, there you have it; a few of the many reasons why you should be having a skin peel. The skin peel treatment process is simple and it’s important to know that there are plenty of options out there for you to choose from depending on your personal needs and budget. Whether it’s an acne treatment or an anti-aging treatment you need, these peels can help get rid of any excess skin cells so that your complexion looks even better than before!
