50 Shades Of Great Skin!

Feb 13, 2015


The skin on our faces tells so much about us.  How old we are, how much we worry and even about the kind of life we lead.  You can apply lotions and potions, wear make up and even change your hairstyle, but your facial skin will always belie your years.

Many external factors affect the way our skin looks.  Sun damage for example, can make your skin look prematurely aged and give you age spots.  Smoking can also make your skin look saggy and older than it should, and give it an unhealthy looking pallor. Even your diet can effect your facial skin, too many unhealthy foods or not enough water can give you spots and make your skin look greasy. But is there anything you can do to help undo the damage of a life well spent?  Yes, there is.  Chemical peels can offer your skin the chance to look rejuvenated, younger and give you your glow back.

Chemical peels can dramatically improve the skin's appearance. The chemicals are used to peel or remove dead skin cells to give a firmer, clearer and more youthful appearance. During the treatment a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which makes it "blister" and eventually peel off. The new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Really, this treatment does exactly what it says on the tin!

The main benefits of having a chemical peel over just using moisturisers or other treatments is how effective it can be for various uses. It can help to:

Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and ageing
Improve the appearance of mild scars
Treat certain types of acne
Reduce age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills
Improve the look and feel of skin

Generally, anyone can have a chemical peel and see improvements, although if you have darker skin, you may in some cases be more likely to have an uneven skin tone after the procedure.

Skin sags, bulges, and more severe wrinkles however, do not respond well to chemical peels. They may need other kinds of cosmetic surgical procedures, such as laser resurfacing, a facelift, brow lift, eyelid lift, or soft tissue filler (collagen or fat). Our surgeon can help determine the most appropriate type of treatment for you.

A chemical peel does not usually present you with any side effects, however there can be a mild burning sensation and mild swelling on applying the peel. After a few days the skin begins to peel and continues over several days. After this you will notice an improved or more youthful complexion, and start to show the world a glimpse of your younger self.

Here at Austingraces we can provide you with advice on the best treatments to rejuvenate your tired looking skin. Whether you are looking for a chemical peel, derma fillers or even Botox injections, we can help. Call us on 08456 020621 or click here to contact us by email.
