An already tested effective treatment for facial and non-facial Skin Photo Damage (sun damage, pigmentation irregularities, skin ageing) is the range of TCA Chemical Peels, which includes Blue Peel. A more conservative option that allows immediate social recovery is the Glicolic Acid peel, it is possible to perform several sessions of this type of peel in a short timespan to increase efficiency, the changes expected should be more subtle than with deeper peels.
As an example ‘liver spots’ from sun damage in the dorsum of the hands respond particularly well to these peels.
Dr. Cerqueiro will analyse your skin and, if required, prescribe a protocol of skin creams before considering a chemical peel. In many cases the needing of a peel is even unnecessary with these protocol treatments.
With this method of skin management the maximum benefits of the peel can be achieved. Dr. Cerqueiro performs the chemical peel as an out-patient office procedure or in combination with rejuvenation surgery procedures in theatre.
Mild pain killers before the peel and cold treatment allow chemical peels to be well tolerated by the patients in the office setting.
