Who is a good candidate for a Chemical Peel
Dermatologist in Dubai recommends chemical peels for patients with fair and light skin. If you have darker skin, you may also see significant improvements depending on the type of problem that is being treated.
Patients with skin sags, bulges, and more severe wrinkles do not respond well to chemical peels and may find other types of cosmetic surgical procedures, such as laser resurfacing, a facelift, brow lift, eyelid lift, or soft tissue filler, more appropriate. The Montreal International Clinics team specializing in Cosmetic Dermatology in Dubai can help determine the most appropriate type of treatment that best suits your condition.
Before you get a chemical peel, your doctor may ask you to stop taking certain medication and prepare your skin by using other medications, prescribe antibiotics or antiviral drugs. Your doctor will work with you to determine the condition of your skin and the goal of the treatment. There is no overnight stay required as this is an outpatient treatment.
The professional who will administer the peel will first clean the skin thoroughly before applying the chemical solution. During a chemical peel, patients may experience a burning sensation that lasts for a couple of minutes, followed by a stinging sensation. Pain relievers may be prescribed based on how deep the peel is. Other noticeable reactions include, redness followed by scaling, swelling, blisters that may break, crust, turn brown, and peel off. These reactions usually subside within a week or two.
Avoid the sun for several months after a chemical peel since your new skin is still very delicate.
