What is a Chemical Peel?

Thrive Aesthetics offers the revolutionary chemical peel in Nairobi which helps to improve skin texture. A chemical peel solution is applied to the required area of the skin for a few minutes and then washed. In the case of strong peels, it’s kept for a few hours in case of stay-on peels. As a result, the skin gets exfoliated and tries to remove damaged cells. It eventually peels off. Therefore, this gives rise to fresh skin. This skin is often smoother and healthier.

Chemical peels help to treat a variety of skin issues. For example:

  • Acne
  • Fine lines
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Mild acne scars
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Melasma

  1. Superficial peels: One of the superficial peels is alpha-hydroxy acid. Superficial peels gently exfoliate the skin. They generally penetrate the outermost layer of skin.
  2. Medium peels: Medium peels such as trichloroacetic or glycolic acid. These peels penetrate the middle and outer layers of the skin. As a result, this helps to remove damaged skin cells.
  3. Deep peels: Peels such as phenol or trichloroacetic acid. These peels fully penetrate the middle layer of the skin. As a result, this removes damaged skin cells. It should be administered only by a professional.
