There are few things that can deliver so much pleasure as basking in the sun. Be it on a charming beach in the exotic coasts of Mexico or on your sun deck overlooking a sweet garden, sunbathing always feels amazing and better still if done with friends or a loved one. However; when following the pleasure, something that the enthusiasts often forget or overlook are the risks involved. Regular sunbathing for prolonged periods over the years takes a serious toll on the human skin, the damaging effects of which are hard to reverse. Too much time outdoors, exposed to harsh rays can put your dermal health at serious risk. This is also detected to be catalyzing early ageing, ushering in the first wrinkles and age spots as well as rough, scaly, patches marking the dermal disorder known in the medical dictionary as ‘actinic keratosis’. Carcinogenic syndromes too may also start surfacing. When the damages are internal, recovery becomes trickier but advanced scientific technology is now opening new avenues to better surface correction with services available exclusively at the top cosmetic treatment centres in the UK. Let us look into the best options in the market for sun damage correction—
Damage improvement with Chemical Peels
The ‘peels’ in this treatment procedure refer to liquids with bleaching and exfoliating properties. These rich potions are directly applicable and this is performed with extreme caution by top rated dermatological professionals, taking into consideration individual conditions of the patients. Allergy-prone skin is treated with extra precaution and so are areas with sensitivity like post-burn tenderness. The primary function of this peeling procedure is to restore a brightened visage full of vitality by catalyzing new cell growth and effectually peeling off the olden blemished layer. The idea is much like ‘moulting’ as in snakes and other invertebrates. Just as these organisms routinely cast off the upper dermal layer of its body at specific points in their life cycle or at definite times of the year, human skin too could be peeled off where the skin has become blackened with ill health. Chemical peels perform exactly that function. When received at regular sessions, peels will help a reduction in pigmentation and the continuous occurrence of acnes too.
Both medically certified professionals and beauty therapists at the award winning clinics are given accreditation for performing peel treatment. Market observers recommend medical certificate holders more for this job because only at the hands of a medical therapist your health and safety can be fully guaranteed.
Chemical peels are widely categorized into—superficial, medium and deep.
- Superficial Peels: As the name already suggests, superficial peels are left on the upper dermis only for a short while, perhaps just a few minutes. After removal the skin might feel a little uncomfortably taut for a couple of hours but this stiffness will wear off over a little time. If time is a serious hindering issue for you, superficial chemical peeling is the best option to go for. With a few minutes at the clinic and an easy post-operation regime to follow, you will be temporarily good to go anywhere with a completely fresh and vitalized look.
- Medium Peels: This procedure takes into account both the uppermost layer of the skin and also the level under it. This process is a little more invasive than superficial peeling. A light burning and stinging sensation is sure to accompany the process on application. In the immediate aftermath your skin will assume a strange reddishness. A minimum of six weeks will surely be needed to get back your normal skin texture. However, when the reddish complexion finally clears up you will have the completely blemish-free dream look which everybody always sought after.
- Deep Peels: The most invasive and penetrative in the range of chemical peel treatment is the third level ‘deep’ applications. This goes deeper than any of the regular AHA peels or the TCA class of peels. These are targeted at more severe imperfections like blotchiness, rough wrinkles, acne scars and incrusted ditches in the skin. Deep peels deliver dramatic results in just one sitting but have more painful effects in the aftermath compared to milder peels.
Chemical Peel for sun damage is a long-withstanding treatment that has been resorted to widely in the UK and beyond for decades now. This is one cosmetic treatment that people have learned to lay their trust upon.
