What Light skin peels treat
Rejuvenate the skin
How does the procedure work?
Light skin peeling is a non-invasive introduction to skin treatments. The Dermatology Institute of Victoria has many different types of peels available in different strengths that are tailored specifically to the patient’s skin type and concerns. Light skin peeling is often used for mild active acne, mild acne scarring, congested skin, dull or sun damaged skin or to reduce the appearance of pores or pigmentation.
What will the patient experience during the procedure?
The patient’s skin will be thoroughly cleansed and a skin prep solution may be applied. The peel itself is then painted on in layers and left to develop, it is then either washed off in the clinic or left on to wear home. Application of sunscreen is important.
What can the patient expect after the procedure?
It is common to feel a mild stinging sensation for a few minutes following application and the skin may turn red. The area may feel tight after treatment, but the patient can apply a suitable moisturiser as frequently as required. The patient may experience a light exfoliation or peel more intensely. Most side effects usually settle by day five after treatment.
