Softly Does It - how your skin feels after skin peels
20 Jun 2012
We all love treatments that turn the clock back on our skin as it ages. One of the most popular and amazingly effective ways of achieving a softer, fresher, more youthful looking complexion is to undergo a treatment that professionally exfoliates the skin, such as microdermabrasion or a skin peel. When carried out by an experienced dermatologist at a sk:n clinic, they can leave skin feeling transformed.
Exfoliation is the process whereby dead skin cells are removed from the surface layer of the skin. Microdermabrasion does this by blasting a fine spray of microcrystals over the area to be treated. This straightforward, painless treatment is ideal for a number of skin conditions, including wrinkles, dry skin, sun damage and acne scarring.
In other instances a skin peel may be advised, where a chemical formula is applied to remove the top layer of skin, revealing the softer, smoother skin underneath. The skin is encouraged to revitalise itself as new skins cells grown to replace the old dead ones. Skin peels can result in a dramatic improvement to skin, including in the treatment of ageing, acne and pigmentation. There are various types of skin peels offered by sk:n clinics, such as a Jessners, TCA, Mandelic or Glycolic peel. The chemical peels vary in intensity and specific benefits a sk:n consultant will advise the best one for your needs.
Following a skin peel the skin can feel remarkable, utterly smooth, soft to the touch and superbly silky. Just after treatment there may be light swelling or skin peeling for a few days, but this will subside. Then, not only does the rejuvenated skin look more youthful but it noticeably feels younger too. With such outstanding results, no wonder many clients choose sk:n clinics' skin peels contact them for a free, no-obligation consultation.
