Chemical Peels Brisbane

Posted by Dr Davin Lim on

Chemical peels are one of the most powerful anti-aging treatments! We can tailor them according to your skin goals and type. Gentle AHA peels can preserve the effects of prior treatments, whilst BHA peels like salicylic acid can help unclog pores and reduce acne! We have a wide range of formulations and concentrations so rest assured our dermal therapists will find the correct peel for your concerns. Book a free skin assessment at our Taringa clinic and see what we can do for you! 

What is the best type of peel for acne prone skin?

BHA peels also known as salicylic acid peels are best for acne. This peel is lipophilic, meaning it penetrates deeper into the oil gland. It also is a powerful chemical exfoliant that can remove even the most stubborn blackheads

What type of peel gives results without downtime?

AHA peels or ‘lunchtime peels’, in particular glycolic acid are the most powerful peels without downtime. These peels are performed in a step up program, consisting of an escalating concentration every 2 to 3 weeks. 

AHA peels are powerful enough to remove pigmentation, sun spots and wrinkles. 

    What is the best peel for sensitive skin?

    Mandelic acid and enzyme peels are gentle on the skin. If you suffer from rosacea, or sensitive skin, we recommend lasers over peels. 

    How much do chemical peels cost?

    Peels start from $100 for glycolic, lactic, retinoic and salicylic acid.

     

    What is the best peel for darker skin / ethnic skin?

    Salicylic acid, low strength AHAs and retinoic acid peels are safe in all skin types. Darker skin types are ideally suited for pico lasers over chemical peels. Lasers are far safer and more effective than peels in skin of colour. 

    What works better, chemical peels or microneedling?

    Chemical peels are more cost effective and in most cases a more effective treatment, with the added benefits of no downtime. 


    We use microneedling for the delivery of ‘actives’ including anti-inflammatories and other molecules into the deeper layers of skin.
