Our face is the first thing that people see and often help form opinions and affiliations for those that meet us. If you suffer from acne as an adult or suffered from acne during adolescents and have been left with scarring a peel will help to reduce the signs of these ailments. Skin peels, also known as chemical peels are non-surgical treatments that remove layers of damaged skin leaving you with a fresher, smoother appearance. At Dr Darren’s Glasgow Clinic there are different types of skin peels on offer: superficial, medium and deep which generally have an effect correlating with their category. In other words the deeper the peel the more drastic the results. However it is possible to build upon your treatments, for example there is the option to have several superficial treatments that will ultimately achieve the result you crave. The type of treatment you have and the number of sessions you require will depend on your dermatology goals, the level of damage your skin has and of course each patient’s anatomy. The doctors at Dr Darren’s Glasgow clinic will consult you on your treatment plan and will advise one that will benefit you.

Depending on the type of skin peel you are having and your desired results you may require a cream to prepare over a 2-6 weeks period before your treatment; this would be a prescription cream. This preparation is to increase results and reduce side effects. It is imperative to wear sunscreen before during and after your treatments, again these timescales would be discussed with your doctor at the Glasgow clinic. Dr Darren has three options on his Glasgow Skin Peel menu including Skin Brightening, Rejuvenating and Medium Depth. The sensation you experience during the skin peel will vary depending on your skin sensitivity.
