Chemical peels have been around for years, and are one of the most widely used techniques for improving the skin’s appearance. At Blue Tree Clinics, we are here to provide you with a chemical peel in Dubai like no other. The process involves the application of a chemical via a brush that is designed to rid the face, hands or neck of dead skin cells.
This is often used to treat certain types of acne as well as melasma (dark patches). It is also a popular choice for reducing the appearance of freckles, fine lines, wrinkles, mild scars and much more. As the process stimulates the body’s natural healing process, increased production of collagen and elastin is to be expected.
There are three different types of chemical peel Dubai residents can choose from. You can learn more about these three types below.
Choose the right chemical peel for you
Here at Blue Tree Clinics, we are a trusted choice for any chemical peel in Dubai. We will always recommend the right peel for your particular needs, and this will usually be determined during your initial consultation. The types available are as follows:
When you’re searching for a superficial chemical peel Dubai residents can rely on to deliver excellent results, look no further than Blue Tree Clinics. This simple process removes skin cells from the epidermis and is relatively pain-free. The liquid is typically applied for only a few minutes, and the patient can expect to experience tightness for up to two hours.
As superficial peels only target the surface layers, the results are not permanent, and so follow-up treatments will be necessary to maintain the results.
A medium peel is designed to target both the top and middle layers, and at Blue Tree Clinics, you won’t find a better medium chemical peel in Dubai anywhere else. As with superficial peels, the liquid is usually left on for a few minutes. Unlike superficial peels, however, a burning or stinging sensation is to be expected during the procedure.
Discolouration of the skin usually occurs afterwards, and this can take several days to clear up. The skin can take several weeks to return to normal. While a medium chemical peel Dubai will provide longer-lasting results than a superficial peel, top-up treatments are usually required every 6-12 months.
During a deep peel, the deepest layers of the skin are targeted. As you would expect, this procedure can be quite painful and so an anaesthetic or mild sedative is usually required. Unlike with a medium peel, a freezing sensation is often experienced; the applied liquid is usually left on for 30 minutes or longer.
A deep chemical peel in Dubai often involves the use of phenol which can have a detrimental effect on the body. As such, the heart and blood pressure is monitored throughout the procedure. Following the treatment, peeling, redness and swelling will usually develop, and this can take anywhere from days to weeks to subside. Lightening of the skin may also occur.
With a deep peel, the effect is permanent making it a one-off treatment with no need for top-up treatments later on.
Even a deep peel is classified as an outpatient procedure, so there is no need for an overnight stay. Our specialists will start with a routine consultation in which we will establish your needs and determine the right type of peel to use. Once we have a frame of reference, we will schedule you in at a time that is convenient for you.
Before the process begins, your skin will be cleaned thoroughly to remove any dirt or excess oils so that the liquid can penetrate unobstructed. One or more chemicals will then be applied to the skin using a brush. At Blue Tree Clinics, we make use of several different chemicals, so for your chemical peel in Dubai, we might use any of the following – glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, carbolic acid, lactic acid or salicylic acid.
The purpose of these chemicals is to create a small and controlled wound that, in turn, stimulates the body’s natural healing process. Afterwards, the wound will be bandaged, and we advise that you keep the wound bandaged for several days. Symptoms that approximate sunburn are to be expected as are redness, scaling and swelling (deep peel).
Direct exposure to the sun should also be avoided for an extended period, so we suggest that the area is kept covered where possible. Results will vary but will include an improved appearance, a reduction in imperfections such as wrinkles, age spots and fine lines and an evening out of your skin tone.
