A chemical peel involves the removal of the skin’s outer layer using a chemical solution. The treatment is carried out by a physician and you can get a chemical peel in London cosmetic clinics.
A chemical peel exfoliates the dead skin, smoothing and effectively treating wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and other facial blemishes. Skin colour, tone and texture are all enhanced. As well as rejuvenating the skin on the face, skin peels can also be used to treat other problem areas on the body, including improving the appearance of stretch marks. It is considered one of the top five non-surgical cosmetic treatments available today and is frequently used by celebrities to keep their skin looking young and fresh.
Phenol, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or glycolic acid are applied to the skin as a facial peel. The results from chemical peels can be seen almost immediately and they have become extremely popular.

Full results will be seen within 4-6 weeks. Good results can be achieved for the majority of patients. Ideal candidates for chemical peel treatments are non-smokers in good health, who have a realistic expectation about what can be achieved.
