Chemical Peels: Revitalising Your Skin at Any Age

In this blog we’ll be delving into the rejuvenating world of chemical peels, a transformative skincare treatment that addresses various skin conditions, including ageing skin, acne, pigmentation, and dry skin.

What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are specialised treatments that involve the application of a chemical solution to the skin, primarily on the face, neck, or hands. These solutions cause the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off, revealing newer, less damaged skin layers beneath.

This process not only smoothens and enhances the skin’s appearance but also stimulates the natural healing processes of the skin.

Types of Chemical Peels


    1. Superficial Peels: Use mild acids like alpha-hydroxy acid to gently exfoliate. It only penetrates the outermost layer of skin.

    1. Medium Peels: Penetrate the outer and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells. Glycolic or trichloroacetic acid is commonly used.

    1. Deep Peels: Reach the deeper layers of the skin. They often use phenol and provide
      more dramatic results.

Treating Ageing Skin

As we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity and moisture, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and a dull complexion. Chemical peels can be a boon for ageing skin, as they remove the outer layer of skin, which is often the most damaged by the sun and ageing.

This process reveals a layer of fresher, younger skin and stimulates collagen production, vital for
maintaining skin elasticity and firmness.

Combatting Acne

Acne can be a persistent issue, not just in teenagers but also in adults. Chemical peels help in treating acne by removing dead skin cells that clog pores and lead to breakouts.

Certain chemical peels can also target the bacteria that cause acne, reducing inflammation and the likelihood of future breakouts.

Addressing Pigmentation

Hyperpigmentation, including sunspots, age spots, and melasma, can be effectively treated with chemical peels. These peels can lighten areas of hyperpigmentation by removing the top layers of the skin, where the pigment is most concentrated.

Regular treatment can lead to a more even skin tone.

Soothing Dry Skin

Dry skin can benefit from superficial chemical peels. These peels can remove the outer layer of dead skin, allowing moisturisers to penetrate more effectively. By stimulating the skin’s natural moisturising factors, chemical peels can help restore the skin’s hydration balance.

The Chemical Peel Process


    • Consultation: A tailored approach begins with a consultation at Eudai Clinic. Our
      experts assess your skin type, concerns, and medical history.

    • Preparation: The skin is cleansed, and a solution is chosen based on your skin
      condition and desired results.

    • Application: The chemical solution is applied to the skin and left for a specific
      amount of time.

    • Peeling Process: Over the next few days to weeks, depending on the type of peel,
      the skin will begin to exfoliate and peel.

    • Aftercare: Post-peel care is crucial. This may include moisturisers, sunscreens, and a
      gentle skincare regimen.
