Chemical peels?

Skin cleansing procedures like Scrubbing and exfoliation have been in use since ages and are known to have wonderful rejuvenating effects on the skin.

This technologically advanced process of exfoliation shows dramatic results and is performed with high precision in the various outlets of The National Skin Centre Delhi.

What is a Chemical Peel

Mild lotions that are applied on skin in order to facilitate burning off of the outer skin layers are known as Chemical Peels. After application these peels are allowed to stay on the skin for a certain point of time during which the acids burn off the outer skin layers and once the procedural time is over the chemical reaction taking place is neutralized with the help of alcohol or simply washed off with water leaving a fresh and glowing skin.

Deep Peels

Post Treatment precautions

The post treatment precautions completely depend on the kind of peels used.

Since all forms of peels are based on burning off of the outer skin layers, redness in the area treated is common to all.

Cost of Chemical Peels:

Procedure Time

While superficial peels may take just a few minutes, the medium and deep peels may take about an hour or two. Also while the down time in superficial peels is absolutely zero, those in medium peels and deep peels is slightly on the higher side as the skin which is burnt to a greater degree in these procedures needs more time to heal before exposure to external environments.
