Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels in Sydney

Are you considering chemical peels in Sydney?

Chemical Peels in Sydney are a great way to achieve optimum results without the significant ‘downtime’ needed by other intensive treatments. These medical strength facial peels remove the outer layers of the skin and stimulate growth from the deeper layers, resulting in a fresher, smoother and more refined appearance.

As the skin renews from within, dramatic results can be noticed with fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, pigmentation, acne lesions, superficial scarring and overall the skin’s complexion is improved.

For best results from your chemical peels in Sydney, a program of three peels is recommended, and then a review of your results is undertaken. Each session takes about half an hour. The skin does need to be prepared with Aspect Dr home care a minimum of two weeks prior to the first treatment, which is included in the cost of the program.

As several damaged layers of the skin are shed, it is common to feel mildly sun burnt after a peel. Redness, peeling and flaking can occur for a few days.

Norwest Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery offers three different chemical peels in Sydney:-

Lactobotanical (Lactic Acid)
Salicylic Acid
Retinol Brulee (Vitamin A)

Programs include three peel treatments, an Aspect Dr Starter Pack (for use before your peels, to prepare your skin), and a thorough skin diagnosis to determine if other skin care is needed.

Each of these three types of chemical peels in Sydney offers different advantages. When you visit your Specialist Plastic Surgeon in Sydney for a consultation, he can help you to determine which type of peel would be the best fit for your skin and your goals.

Skin Preparation with Aspect Dr Starter Pack

The Aspect Dr Starter Pack is comprised of:

· Deep Clean Cleanser (30ml)
· Resveratrol Moisturiser (15ml)
· Active C Serum (6ml)
· Exfol A Plus (6ml)

If you suffer from post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation (where, after the redness from an injury fades, your skin is darkened for a period of time) or if you are having a more intensive peel (such as one of the Salicylic Acid Peels – Pigment Punch and Cabernet au Chocolat; or the Vitamin A Retinol Brulee Peel), it is also important to prepare the skin for the two weeks before the peel with the Complete Pigment Serum to inhibit the production of melanin (pigment). This can be used both morning and evening in conjunction with the other serums. This prepares your skin for your chemical peels in Sydney.

In between treatments and after any peel, it is essential to use a physical sun block. We suggest Aspect Envirostat. Treated skin becomes more sensitive to the sun’s potentially damaging rays, so sun protection is extremely important to maintain good results after a chemical peel.

Aspect Dr’s Redless Serum is a corrective anti oxidant calming serum which can be used to help your skin regenerate and stabilize in colour more rapidly. It is used over the top of the other serums, both morning and evening, helping to protect and nurture your skin following a chemical peel in Sydney.
