5 Benefits of Chemical Peels at Flawless Rejuvenation in Melbourne

Chemical peels work to remove old layers of skin, congestion and a build-up of oil that can occur over time. They are essentially a type of exfoliating treatment that can create smoother and cleaner skin, available at different potencies, depending on your individual needs.

Removing dead skin cells and oil can make some aesthetic changes to your skin, particularly with a personalised treatment plan created at Flawless Rejuvenation, tailoring the peel to work for your skin type and target your concerns.

In this blog, we’ll take a look at the possible skin concerns you may be having, and how chemical peels can help.

Signs of ageing skin

Peeling away the top layer of your skin can help to reduce some signs of ageing that have formed, such as fine lines and wrinkles. Dry, dead skin can make some lines appear more noticeable, so removing it can have a positive effect.

Exfoliating your skin can also give the skin a boost in terms of producing new skin cells.

While it may not remove deeper signs of ageing, such as deep wrinkles, removing the top layer of your skin can reduce their appearance. Regular peels done over time can work even better!

Sun damage

Minor sun damage that has affected the top layer of skin can be exfoliated away with chemical peels.

Sun damage can include sped-up signs of ageing, pigmentation and textured patches. After a chemical peel, we highly recommend applying an SPF every day! Even when it’s not that sunny, UV rays can affect your skin in the long term if your skin is not protected.

Acne, pigmentation and scarring

Congested pores and oil build-up can be the source of acne, which can be treated with chemical peels. As a skin-cleaning, exfoliating treatment, peels can clear out clogged pores and help you to maintain cleaner skin.

Pigmentation on the surface of your skin can be caused by sun damage, hormonal changes, inflammation and more, depending on your personal lifestyle, health and genetic factors. You might notice skin pigmentation in the form of coloured spots, which can show up in different sizes and shades. A peel can remove some of the skin that has pigmented spots, revealing clearer skin underneath.

Similar to pigmentation and sun damage, scarring can also be more prominent on the surface of your skin, which can be exfoliated. Like signs of ageing, while it may not completely remove deeper scars, it can help to fade their appearance.

Tone and texture

As well as being influenced by our genetics, our skin tone and texture can change over time, becoming oily, dry or sensitive. Chemical peels can remove patches of dry skin, or strip some excess oil away for cleaner skin.

When you come to our clinic for a consultation, your skin tone, texture and type will all be assessed and taken into consideration when creating your personalised chemical peel treatment. This will help us to find the right potency of the peel that will be the most suitable for you.

Increased absorption of skincare products

You may notice that, when you apply your favourite serum or moisturiser, you still seem to have dry patches or oily areas on your skin and it may seem like the product hasn’t made all that much of a difference.

When old, dead skin cells are removed, it can help your skin to better absorb the products that you will then apply. Products like serums and moisturisers can be more easily absorbed by the skin, allowing them to have more of an effect.

You will be able to notice after your chemical peel treatment at our clinic, since we will apply soothing serums and a protective moisturise to the treated area straight after your peel!
