What are Chemical Skin Peels?

Dr. Lisa Fay explains the benefits of chemical peels. Chemical peels are a very effective anti ageing treatment which can rejuvenate your skin. The net result is a luminous glowing complexion. A build up of dead skin cells can result in a dull lifeless grey complexion. Chemical peels remove these dead skin cells through exfoliation.

Chemical peels can be classified as superficial depth peels (glycolic peels), medium depth peels (Trichloracetic acid or TCA peels) and deep (phenol peels).

Areas suitable for treatment:

  • Face
  • Hands
  • Decolletage

Dr. Lisa Fay favours TCA peels for pigmentation because this skincare treatment can rejuvenate your skin significantly after a course of four treatments.
