So many of us are self-conscious about our skin. It’s the largest organ of our body, after all, and it is our first barrier against sun, wind, and weather. Most people’s skin needs more care and attention than high-street brands can offer, which is where the humble chemical peel with James Willis Faces takes centre stage.
The chemical peel has been used since the times of the ancient Egyptians. It creates a controlled burn or wound on the surface of the skin, stripping away the dead, dying, and damaged cells. This leaves you freshened, revitalised, and with the glow of new skin.
Chemical peels are versatile treatments, with strengths and concentrations that can be adapted to your target area or skin condition. Were you aware of everything the chemical peel can treat?
Active acne can be beaten with chemical peels. A course of regimented skin peels at appropriate lengths apart could essentially help to ‘reset’ the skin by rebalancing your oil production. They also help to dry out the existing spots, minimising them rather effectively.
Acne scarring can occur after we have won our battle against our spots, but it can be an unwelcome reminder of what we’ve overcome. A chemical peel can reduce the appearance of acne scars, and it achieves this by creating a controlled wound. The skin reacts to this surface-level wounding by beginning its natural healing process, producing more collagen to build the skin back up. This new collagen growth smooths out the pock–like marks of acne scarring.
Fine lines and wrinkles can also be minimised with a course of chemical peels. As we age, our skin loses collagen and it appears loose and sagging in some areas. Many people feel this prematurely ages them and would like to minimise these lines while reinstating a natural glow. A chemical peel can achieve this by stimulating the production of new collagen, filling some of the lines from the inside of the skin with the proteins that create volume. Because chemical peels are often recommended in treatment courses, your results could continue to improve and be maintained with each treatment!
Dull or tired-looking skin can prematurely age us and generally dampen our appearance. This could be because of the build-up of debris like oils, dead skin cells, and effects from the environment taking their toll on our skin, but a chemical peel can help. By applying a controlled skin releveling, we can remove the top damaged layer of skin to reveal a brighter, clearer, younger-looking layer underneath. This can add a fresh-faced glow back to your appearance, no longer stifled by skin blockages!
Chemical peels can even address skin conditions like uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, and sun spots. We would always recommend a course of chemical peel treatment so that we can best maintain your results and prevent long-term skin remodelling, and we tailor these entirely to your needs.
