How does a chemical peel work?
The exact process always depends on the peel you choose. Generally, in peeling sessions, your skin is cleaned thoroughly and prepared for the chemical peel. Then your aesthetician will apply the chemical peel to your skin and leave it on the skin for the designated time. It is normal to feel prickly sensations on the skin while the chemical peel starts doing exfoliation. Usually, chemical peels would need a neutraliser to rebalance the skin, and once the process is completed, it will give you a regenerated complexion.

A hydrafacial is a non-invasive and gentle way of cleaning, exfoliation, and hydrating the skin. Hydrating facial follows these seven simple steps to rejuvenate your skin.
Benefits of Hydrating facials
Hydration. With this treatment, the moisture is locked that allowing the skin to heal and repair itself.
Improved skin tone. Exfoliation takes place without damaging the necessary moisture and oil. With the shedding of dead skin cells, new skin cells reveal smooth and even skin tone & texture.
Bright complexion. The hydrating serum helps in moisture retention, balance, and circulation. As a result, it gives the skin a bright and supple complexion.
Decreased sebum production & breakouts. Too much oil means you’re prone to acne and less oil production asks you to beg for little moisture. The hydrating facial balances and regulates the oil production on your face.
Increased skincare product absorption. Deep cleansing and toning your face increases your home skincare efficacy. A cleansed skin allows serum or cream to better absorb in the skin so you can reap maximum benefits of your skincare products.
Laser treatments and resurfacing are some sought-after procedures to deal with the most common causes of the skin, such as acne scars, wrinkles, sun spots, redness, age spots, and rosacea. There are many laser options available; some skin conditions may need laser programs ( combination of 2 or 3 types of lasers), but what suits you best always leaves many confused. The ideal way is to consult with your aesthetic doctor to find out the best option.
We’ve listed below some laser treatments for the face.
Ablative Fractional CO2 Lasers (DEKA CO2 laser)
The Ablative fractional CO2 laser resurfacing promotes collagen production and makes the skin firmer and tighter by removing the skin cells throughout the face, neck, and chest layers. This particular laser treatment targets:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Age spots
- Acne scars
- Shallow scars
- Dull skin
- Skin laxity
This laser treatment is considered to be effective but invasive. That means recovery time takes up to a week.
Non-Ablative Fractional Lasers (Discovery PICO)
The non-ablative fractional lasers work by heating and stimulating the deeper layers of the skin. That promotes collagen production and helps clear away dryer, older and dull skin cells simultaneously.
This laser treatment can:
- Reduce the appearance of the scars
- Brighten the skin tone
- Lighten dark spots
- Smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles
Generally, the downtime with this treatment is short, about 1 to 3 days, and for optimal results, you need additional resurfacing treatments.
PICO Pigment Laser (Discovery PICO laser)
Pico Laser works in ultrashort picosecond laser pulses, as compared to nanosecond pulses in a Q-Switched Laser. Pigmentation under the skin absorbs the laser energy shatters into smaller fragments. The skin’s immune system then removes these fragmented pigments.
The Picosecond laser breaks down pigmentation into much smaller fragments as compared to a Q-Switched Laser. This enables the skin to clear these fragments faster and easier, reducing the number of treatments required.
