This skin treatment consists of two stages :
- Stage 1: The skin preparation medical cream pre-peel program, lasting for 6-8 weeks.
- Stage 2 : The skin chemical peel: "light", or "medium"
The Chemical Peel Program (Light, or Medium Concentrations)
The chemical peel program is an essential step after the preparation stage in order to further improve your skin condition.
During your chemical peel treatment, Dr. Zakhary will gently apply the chemical liquid (for example: glycolic acid or trichloracetic acid TCA) to your skin to exfoliate the top most layer of collected dead skin and reorganize your collagen and elastic skin fibres.
The actual treatment is safe, and allows patients to achieve fresher and better looking skin quickly, and without the risks and complications of more invasive procedures. Chemical peels can give your skin a nice healthy glow in around 30 minutes. Many patients find that the chemical peel procedure is a soothing and relaxing treatment that is great before special events such as wedding and reunions, since it has little down time.
