There are different types of chemical peels, and during your consultation Mr Marando will advise you which peel would be most suited to your skin type. Different types of chemical peels are better suited to certain skin problems and types, and chemical peels also differ in strength, and are classified as superficial, medium and deep according to the level of skin they reach. The type of skin peels that Mr Marando offers are:
The superficial peels include Alpha-Hydroxy (AHA) peels, Beta-hydroxy (BHA) acid peels and Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peel at 10-20%. AHA peels stimulates collagen formation, whereas BHA are used for oilier skins or acne prone skins as they are oil soluble and penetrate deeper into the oilier skin environ. TCA peels provide skin resurfacing and improve skin texture, wrinkles and pigmentation.
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) 35% – at these concentrations, TCA peels can help with skin texture, wrinkles and pigmentation. This acid peel will remove dead skin cells, minimising fine lines and superficial age spots and other skin discolourations. These peels are also very effective for decreasing the appearance of acne scars. These treatments are often combined with other skin rejuvenating treatments, such as microdermabrasion. These treatments are usually spaced 2 to 3 months apart for maximum impact.
