Skin peels need to be performed carefully by a trained and experienced practitioner. Should your skin not be carefully assessed during the consultation appointment, or your medical history not taken into consideration, you could end up having a reaction to your skin peel that makes your skin worse and not better.
Here at the L’Atelier Harley Street practice, our practitioners have received extensive training in delivering safe and effective skin peel treatments. We pride ourselves on our bespoke service and assess each individual in turn. We want to ensure that we provide only skin improvements, which is why it’s worth checking out our reviews. These back up our claims.
A skin peel delivered carelessly can give you exacerbated skin problems, but done right, your skin will appear brighter, less dull, not to mention wholly rejuvenated and revitalised.
How do skin peels work?
Skin peels, as their name suggests, will peel away the outermost layer of your problem skin, to reveal fresh, young, unblemished skin tissue in its place. If you think about how much exposure your skin gets to dirt in the atmosphere and pollution on a daily basis, over many years, not to mention the ageing effects of gravity, it’s not surprising that our skin becomes tired, dull-looking, wrinkled and our pores blocked! To undo all of that damage, it’s sometimes easier to simply strip the outer layer of damaged cells away.
The skin peel solution will consist of a light acid-based substance, which will be administered by one of our Harley Street professionals. It will be painted onto the skin, during your treatment appointment and left in place for a short while, before being washed away again. While the solution is on your skin, it will trick the body into thinking it has damaged cells that need repairing. In response to this, the body will remove these cells; the ones it perceives to be damaged and replace them with new skin cells.
Our practitioner will assess your skin during your consultation with us to decide which peel solution is going to be most effective and provide you with the best rejuvenation, or skin-cleansing results.
The sort of skin complaints skin peels can resolve
Have you got acne that you wish you could shift? There’s a chance a skin peel could change that. Acne scarring is another skin problem that can be helped in this way. Sun damage in the form of marked and wrinkled skin, or age spots can be removed and as for lines that are a result of ageing, these can be improved.
