Acid Peels Birmingham

TREATMENT OVERVIEW

A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve the appearance of the skin. A chemical solution is applied to the skin and causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin will be smoother, brighter and less textured.

TREATMENT BENEFITS

The peeling action causes the elimination of the external layers of the skin to stimulate collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycan production, thus enhancing its physiological and mechanical characteristics.

  • Purify and oxygenate the skin, leaving it moisturised and free of impurities.
  • Close open pores, improve the texture of the skin and increase the thickness of the epidermis.
  • Address the effects of skin ageing, softening wrinkles and adding turgidity
  • Unify skin tone, add luminosity and smooth cutaneous imperfections.
  • Lighten and attenuate pigmented lesions, providing a depigmenting effect.
  • Reduce the manifestations of AcneAcne and improve the appearance of scars.

Frequently Asked Questions

No. Peels are selected based on the nature of the cases to treat and the patient’s characteristics, especially the phototypes.
Low phototypes present less risk of suffering PIH (Post Inflammatory
Hyperpigmentation’s). It would help to determine the advisability of performing chemoexfoliation on high phototypes (type 5 and 6) patients.
Can these treatments be performed on the body?
Mesopeel ensures unbeatable, progressive results for both facial and body treatments.

We offer a wide range of AHA, BHA and combined acid peels ranging from practitioner up to medical level, each different suiting varieties of skin concerns.

The number of sessions depends on the peel being used.
Many of our medical peels, the TCA in particular, should only be performed once every twice a year. However, our highly superficial, superficial and medium strength peels can generally be completed in sessions of six treatments, with two weeks between each treatment.

The Brightening peel booster or the Resurfacing peel booster is recommended to be applied nightly to the skin 15 days before a skin peel to prepare the skin.

The client should be using mesenteric hydra milk cleanser, hydratonic, fast skin repair, hydra-vital factor k and moisturising sun protection SPF 50+. This is all available as a pack called the post-peel pack, recommended for use following any of our peel treatments. Using the products will reduce irritation, peeling and chances of having any adverse reactions.

Regular maintenance peels several times a year, sustain the skin’s healthy appearance, improve texture, and provide a preventative, anti-ageing effect. Peel frequency is dependent on the type of peel being performed; a session can be repeated generally up to four times a year to maintain results. Some of our medical peels, however, should not be performed more than twice a year maximum.

As well as being a highly efficient treatment for skin ageing, AcneAcne and pigmented lesions, mesopeel is an ideal tool for optimising other medical aesthetic procedures. These include Mesotherapy, botulinum toxin, radiofrequency and micro-needling and electroporation.
