Is there a specific requirement for chemical peeling treatment?
It has been identified that individuals who are fair-skinned and light-haired are good candidates for chemical peeling treatment. Persons who have darker skin could also have agreeable results, which depends on the type of area that is being treated for chemical peeling. Experts believe that removal of skin bulges, sags and severe wrinkles are not responsive to chemical peeling treatment and, therefore, we recommend you to consult our dermatologists at Montreal International Clinic in Dubai, who will assist in providing you details on the appropriate treatment.
What is the procedure and after treatment like?
The professionals at the Montreal International Clinic will first clean the area that is treated thoroughly, and apply one or more chemical solutions to small areas of the skin which creates a controlled wound, letting new skin take its place.
During a chemical peel, most patients feel a burning sensation that lasts for a short time, followed by a light stinging sensation. Putting cool compresses on the skin may ease the stinging and those with sensitive skin may need pain medication during or after a deeper peel.
Depending on the type of chemical peel treatment, the patient may have a reaction similar to sunburn, which occurs following the procedure.
Peeling usually involves redness and is followed by scaling that lasts for about three to seven days. Mild peels may be repeated at one to four-week intervals until the patient acquires the look they desire.
