The skin is the bodies largest organ and serves as a unique identifier. We know and accept that we cannot halt the ageing process but some of the signs of ageing can be softened. Chemicals peels are one of the top 5 non surgical procedures that can help with conditions such as the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, acne and melasma.
At Chamonix, the favoured peel is the perfect peel. The perfect peel requires no pre-peel preparation and is relatively pain-free, however, some slight stinging may occur. Significant peeling will usually occur on days 4 to 7. You will be given an aftercare pack to aid the peeling process.
The first stage in the process involves a medical history being taken and any questions or concerns you may have will be addressed. Your skin will then be prepared by using an alcohol-based solution and then the peeling solution will be applied. Slight stinging might be experienced but this usually passes quickly. After the peel has been applied the nurse will give you a take-home aftercare kit and instructions (verbal and written).
There may be circumstances that mean you cannot have a chemical peel. For example, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you have an allergy to aspirin or any of the other ingredients. Any active skin conditions would also stop you from being able to have a peel at that time.
