Refresh your face this autumn with a chemical peel

With the harsh temperatures of autumn blowing across our bare faces, there’s no surprise that skin can start to look tired.  What better way to get a refreshed-looking complexion that than to opt for the deep exfoliation of a chemical peel?

Research has shown that half a million people have chemical peels every year, as a quick and simple way of improving the appearance of their skin without the need for a surgery or injections.

A chemical peel is a non-surgical skin treatment that involves a special acid being used to peel away the top layers of the skin, resulting in both dead and bad skin being peeled away.

Helping to restore youth and brightness in the skin, chemical peels are an ideal acne treatment, too, as well as being ideal for simply rejuvenating skin. Best performed in the autumn, the results of a chemical peel treatment can be affected by sunlight, so it’s better to avoid having this treatment during the summer months.

Dr Barbara Kubicka offers the popular Obagi and Neo Strata chemical peels in her exclusive cosmetic treatments clinic based in Belgravia.  There treatment is not just for the face – it can be used on the body too to refresh the hands or decolletage.

In many cases a series of peels are recommended for best results, as opposed to just one. For example, to eradicate deep scars, crow’s feet, lines, and wrinkles or improve skin that has suffered from acne.

For individual advice, consultations are always had beforehand, where the patient and Dr Barbara Kubicka will agree on the best treatment plan to restore the patient’s skin to the younger, brighter complexion it once was.
