Mode Chemical Peels Sydney North Shore

Our skin replaces old cells with new ones in a process called natural exfoliation – however with age this process slows down and it contributes to facial ageing.

Chemical peels exfoliate, and by removing the outermost layer skin, produces skin rejuvenation and healing that reduces wrinkles (particularly fine wrinkles), age spots, sun damage and uneven pigmentation.

 

Why come to a Plastic Surgery Clinic for a Chemical Peel?

  • In a plastic surgery practice, chemical peels are performed by experienced practice nurses working in the practice. Nurses working with a plastic surgeon have received direct training from both the surgeon as well as industry leaders to allow them with the skill, knowledge and experience that allows a surgeon to trust them with their patient and reputation.
  • After a careful assessment during skin consultation with our practice nurse we will suggest which chemical peel is best for you – in general it is safer to try a lighter, more superficial peel and then try a deeper peel if you are willing to accept the down-time.
  • In a plastic surgery practice, we will only suggest chemical peels if they are the the right thing for you – for instance if your wrinkles or facial appearance are the result of loose skin, you may require a different treatment or surgical procedure, in which case spending time and money on chemical peels may not be worthwhile.

Procedure Information

There are several types of chemical peel techniques:

  • light and medium facial peels are used to remove superficial wrinkles and discolouration.
  • deeper peels will be more aggressive at removing wrinkles and produce a more rejuvenating effect
  • However the deeper the chemical peel, the longer the recovery time required. After light facial peels, patients may return to their normal activities immediately and wear cosmetics to conceal the redness. Medium and deep chemical peels however, may result in swelling and light crusting of the skin, meaning more downtime followed by peeling which can last up to 2 weeks.

Lactic, Glycolic and Salicylic Acid peels are most commonly used for skin rejuvenation.

  • AHA & BHA series of peels are best used if you have acne, pigmentary changes, moderate wrinkling, or sun damage. These produce noticeable results in the look and feel of your skin with absolutely no downtime.
  • Lactic acid stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastic fibres in the dermal layer of the skin, so that, over a period of time, the skin surface begins to look younger and smoother. The restoration of elasticity actually helps the disappearance of fine lines!

A peel takes approximately 30-45 minutes, and combined with a skin consultation allow at least 1 hour of your time.

Procedure FAQs

  • In general the deeper the peel the more the down time
  • Lighter peels are not associated with any down time as the redness can be immediately covered with some make-up
  • Medium and deeper peels can produce crusting as the outer skin layers shed and this can occur for 2 weeks
  • Following any skin peel, your new skin will be sensitive, so you must use maximum sun protection.
  • Peels act by loosening the cohesive glue-like adhesion of the cells in the outer five or six layers of the epidermis. As these outer layers begin to loosen and exfoliate – combination of routine and effective daily skin care is essential to produce healthier, more youthful skin cells to be produced.
  • Chemical peels can be repeated as necessary to achieve and maintain desired results.
  • Skin consultation with our practice nurse is free
  • Chemical peels vary in cost depending on the depth of the peel and the time taken to perform it.
