Q & A: What are the benefits of skin peels over other non-surgical rejuvenation treatment
Skin peels are a type of a resurfacing procedure. Other resurfacing procedures include dermabrasion and laser resurfacing.
– Superficial and medium peels are suitable for most people unless you have a history of bad scarring or issues with pigmentation.
– If you have darker skin, it is important to see an experienced practitioner as the peel can cause skin bleaching.
– Before having a deep phenol peel a patient will need to undergo a thorough assessment – which includes heart, kidney and liver function.
There are pros and cons of each of these procedures. There are many chemicals used for peeling and many individual indications.
In some situations chemical peels may be superior to other resurfacing modalities. You can find out more about these types of treatments at APSARAS by booking a consultation.
