Italian Acne peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin by having a chemical solution is applied to the skin. A “blister” is caused and is eventually peeled off. A new, regenerated skin will appear in place of the acne skin.
Constant exposure to the harmful rays of the sun causes the skin to be damaged with a possibility of these areas containing pre-cancerous keratoses that appear as scaly spots. These may be improved after chemical peeling and following treatments, new pre-cancerous lesions are less likely to appear.
Most customers experience a warm to somewhat hot sensation that lasts about five to ten minutes, followed by a stinging sensation. Cool compresses may be applied to help alleviate this stinging. A deeper peel may require pain medication during or after the procedure.
Generally, fair-skinned and light-haired customers are ideal candidates for chemical peels. Darker skin types may also have good results, depending upon the type of problem being treated.
Depending upon the type of chemical peel, a reaction similar to sunburn occurs following the procedure. Peeling usually involves redness, followed by scaling that ends within three to seven days. Mild peels may be repeated at one to four-week intervals until the desired clinical effect is achieved.
Medium-depth and deep peeling may result in swelling, as well as the presence of water blisters that may break, crust, turn brown and peel off over a period of seven to 14 days. Medium-depth peels may be repeated in six to twelve months, if necessary.
You will work with your doctor to determine the depth of your peel. This joint decision can vary, depending upon the condition of your skin and the objectives of treatment.
It is important to avoid over-exposure to the sun after a chemical peel since the new skin is fragile and more susceptible to complications. Our Doctors will prescribe the proper follow-up care to reduce the tendency of developing abnormal skin colour after peeling.
