Chemical Peel

Human skin is most exposed to weather elements, pollution and other environmental factors. Ipso facto the skin shows more signs of ageing than the rest of the body. In a country like India where the harsh heat from the sun affects the skin adversely, there needs to be a solid solution to help the skin heal once again. Vanity Cosmetic Clinic, Mumbai understands how wrinkles, sun damage and fine lines can affect us not only physically but also psychologically. 

Dr Santosh Bhatia our Board-certified Plastic Surgeon is an expert in Skin Care treatments. At Vanity Cosmetic Clinic, we offer a range of Chemical Peels that are rich in antioxidants, exfoliants and vitamins that can restore your skin’s youthful glow.  

Dr Santosh Bhatia recommends skin peels or chemical peels for moderately damaged skin with fine wrinkles, poor complexion and patches of hyperpigmentation. 

Chemical peels, peel off the superficial to intermediate to deep layers of the skin. Once these layers of the skin have been peeled, new youthful skin grows back. The depth of the peel is determined by the concentration and type of the peeling agent used.

What Is
chemical peel?

Chemical peels are a non-invasive cosmetic treatment for the face, neck and even hands. Chemical peels are made up of chemicals that have the ability to repair sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles and boost the overall health of the skin. 

Vanity Cosmetic Clinic, Mumbai offers a range of chemical peels which can heal the skin and restore it’s fair and beautiful skin tone, making you look younger and prettier! 

Even though Chemical Peels are non-invasive by nature, only a Board-certified Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon is legally allowed to apply them. So Dr Santosh Bhatia, Vanity Cosmetic Clinic’s Accredited Plastic Surgeon strongly recommends going to only genuine dermatologists or plastic surgeons for this treatment for the sake of your own safety. 

Why do
patients opt for chemical peels?

Chemical Peels are a simple and effective solution to multiple skin problems. There is zero downtime to Chemical Peels treatment hence making them popular and appealing to men and women of all ages. 

According to Dr Santosh Bhatia of Vanity Cosmetic Clinic, Mumbai following are the skin-related issues that chemical peels can solve: 

The effectiveness of Chemical Peels across the spectrum of skin issues makes it the most popular choice in non-invasive cosmetic treatments. 

What are
the different chemical peels at vanity cosmetic clinic?

Vanity Cosmetic Clinic, Mumbai has a variety of Chemical Peels which can eliminate skin-related issues. Dr Santosh Bhatia, our Board-certified Plastic Surgeon has chosen the most effective Chemical Peels for his patients. They are as follows: 

Glycolic Peel

Glycolic acid is the gold standard in chemical peel formulations. Its exfoliation properties work wonders on the patient’s skin. At Vanity Cosmetic Clinic, Mumbai, Glycolic Peel is our go-to for its proven ability to transform the health and appearance of a multitude of skin types. 

The peel consists of Glycolic acid, Trichloroacetic acid and Phenolic acids as peeling agents used in various concentrations. The higher the percentage of the acids, the deeper the peel will be. Glycolic acid is a mild peel, which usually does not actually cause or result in a visible peeling of the skin. It is hence safe to use on darker skin types. When applied to the skin, the acid stings a little and eventually the skin look red to white in colour depending upon the depth of the peel.

If there is one virtually downtime-free skin treatment that peels off the dead skin cells microscopically, then it has to be glycolic acid chemical peel treatment. Also known as lightening peels, this treatment is ideal for women who suffer from excess sebum. 

According to Dr Santosh Bhatia, our Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Glycolic Peel rejuvenates your skin while reducing pigmentation problems and skin tanning. It simultaneously produces new collagen and elastin. It will help in achieving a skin that looks smoother, compact, lighter and even-toned in complexion post this magical alpha-hydroxyl acid procedure.

This is an effective treatment to remove superficial pigmentation blemishes from the skin. It has a firming effect on the collagen of the skin and thus decreases fine wrinkles and fresh acne scars. 

You will need four to six sittings to be done every half of the month for a good result in advanced cases. Maintenance peels may be done every two months. These peels should only be done by a specialist who is trained in Dermatology or Plastic Surgery. If administered wrongly, they can even burn the skin and damage it significantly. Hence we recommend utmost care during application. The downtime is usually only a day or two. Adequate sun protection and moisturization are necessary during and after the peeling process.

Glutathione Peel

Glutathione Peel is the latest addition to skincare trends. People from all over the world are going gaga over this cosmetic treatment. At Vanity Cosmetic Clinic, Mumbai we always like to keep up with the times and hence we have added this new peel to our skin whitening and lightning docket. 

Dr Santosh Bhatia, our Board-certified Plastic Surgeon explains that Glutathione Peel consists of glutathione which is a potent chemical that is commonly used as a brightener. Its healing and brightening properties have made it popular. Apart from Glutathione, the other ingredients are trichloroacetic acid (TCA), salicylic acid, retinoic acid, kojic acid, phenol and vitamin C. All of these ingredients have anti-oxidant properties which suggest that they are effective anti-ageing solutions as well. 

The benefits of Glutathione peel include an improved, brighter and whiter skin tone, less fine lines and wrinkles and reduction in acne outbursts.

Lightening Peel

Skin-lightening is a much-needed cosmetic treatment for women of all age groups. The side-effects of pollution and exposure to harsh weather make it necessary to undergo this treatment to restore their fair skin. 

Lightening peels at Vanity Cosmetic Clinic, Mumbai are effective on all skin types – normal, oily or dry and all skin tones – fair to dark. The lightening peels consist of Kojic acid, Phytic acids, Glycolic acids etc. They also have natural fruit elements in them. All of these elements assist in restoring the natural radiance of the skin and treat fine lines as well.
