CHEMICAL PEELS


Medical Peel

This is the application of a medical solution to remove the upper layers of the skin and excess pigmentation. This can be used to treat acne scars, dull and sallow aged skin and pigmentation problems. The therapy smoothes the skin texture and increases the skin turnover time to give the skin a healthy, vibrant glow. Fine lines are softened and brown spots and patchy areas are evened out. Pore size and excess oil secretion can also be improved.

After application of the peeling solution, patients feel an itching or warm sensation but no pain. The solution is neutralised with a soothing cream and the face is iced immediately.

Post treatment, there can be mild flaking or pinkness of the skin which can last from a few days to a week. Make up can easily be applied on to disguise the flaky skin during this period. Male patients can always say that they have spent a bit too much time in the sun!

Microdermabrasion

Micro-crystals are used to gently remove the dead cells on the top layer of the skin. This renews and smoothens the skin texture and also removes superficial pigmentation. When used for large pore and acne prone skin, it removes blackheads and whiteheads and also stimulates collagen formation. Acne scars can therefore be softened. Patients only feel a slight suctioning pressure and there is almost no downtime. The treatment can be repeated as often as twice monthly.

Vitamin C Dermaphoresis (Ultrasound)

Micro-crystals are used to gently remove the dead cells on the top layer of the skin. This renews and smoothens the skin texture and also removes superficial pigmentation. When used for large pore and acne prone skin, it removes blackheads and whiteheads and also stimulates collagen formation. Acne scars can therefore be softened. Patients only feel a slight suctioning pressure and there is almost no downtime. The treatment can be repeated as often as twice monthly.

The skin forms a barrier which protects us from harmful germs. This also prevents the entry of beneficial nutrients like Vitamin C. Dermaphoresis uses gentle ultesound waves to help in the penetration of Vitamin C. We at Dr Chio’s only use the best quality Vitamin C (pure enough to be injected). This essential skin nutrient and powerful anti-oxidant helps to:
• Even out red and brown marks steadily
• Brightens the complexion
• Effectively treat sensitive, blemish and redness prone skin.

There is no downtime and treatments can be as frequent as weekly.
