Chemical Peels

What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical Peels
Chemical skin peels restore, revitalise and regenerate the skin, removing some of the visible signs of ageing and restoring the skin health. Environmental skin damage assaults our skin from birth to maturity. , We can defend and protect our vital skin against the prevails of the modern World: city toxins, environmental damage, and the
challenges of a diminishing ozone layer

Skin peeling is recognised as a fundamental treatment choice for better skin health.

Chemical peels refresh, rejuvenate and rebuild the skin, for the prevention of skin damage and to treat and reverse existing skin damage and ageing. At the Jonathan Britto Clinic we use a range of chemical peels to suit all budgets and social commitments and with the options of light, medium and deep chemical peeling techniques.

Chemical peeling is well and truly at the centre of all good skin health programmes, refreshing, rejuvenating, and repairing the skin.

We are able to advise the peel that suits you and suits your skin. Superficial chemical peels are simple exfoliants, to refresh and add some ‘zing’ before a return to work or play.

Deeper chemical peels, such as the Obagi Blue penetrate the dermis, deglove the debris, and give superior results on many skin problems – from severe sun damage to acne scarring.

Benefits

Why would you consider a chemical peel?

Chemical Peels
  • Pigmentation. From hormonally driven melasma to the hyperpigmentation of environmental and sun damage, many pigmentation concerns can be improved with chemical peels.
  • Sun damaged skin – “Actinic elastosis” (also referred to as solar elastosis) is a condition that is caused by extreme sun damage. The skin takes on a ‘leathery’ appearance and lines form in a ‘hashtag’ structure. Rough textured, thickened pigmented skin is associated with sun damage
    Chemical peels not only peel away the visible damage – they stimulate the repair and regeneration of the dermal matrix proteins for improved immune protection, hydration, vascularity and aesthetics Chemical peeling techniques can be used on any areas that have been repeatedly exposed to the sun including the face, neck, décolleté and hands.
  • Fine lines and wrinkles. Specialised peels can be used to target the delicate area around the eyes and mouth giving smooth, clear, firm skin. Such fine lines and textural irregularities respond well to combination therapy with specialised fine dermal fillers and chemical peeling options.
  • Scarring. Deep acne scarring penetrates all the layers of the dermis. This can be difficult to treat. Chemical peels in combinaton therapies offer superior results over other treatment modalities. Repeated peels refine the skin quality, and combination care with fine fillers is a controllable ‘gold standard, manageable at patients own pace. Difficult post surgical scars are treated with targeted ‘spot – peels’

FAQs

Skin conditioning by chemical peeling means so much more than “skin-care”. Whereas “skincare” is an industry, inevitably commercially driven, “skin health” is a medical specialty driven by evidence. We work with products and prescriptions that are effective, for health improvements that deliver aesthetic benefit, and quality of life!

Whether in synergy with surgery, or as simple standalone changes of habit to improve the quality of your skin, there is a programme for you – where you will see benefit in health, well-being, and confidence in appearance.

Arguably, aesthetic plastic surgical care is incomplete without a strategy for the skin. We can be as sophisticated and technology driven as our learning and skills allow with our surgery, but in the absence of good skin health the result is incomplete. Holistic, multidisciplinary, and joined up care – which gives the best results for happy patients. This is where the professional satisfaction of providing a great service lies….
