Chemical Peel in Johor Bahru

The Ultimate Guide to Chemical Peel in Johor Bahru

Find out about chemical peels in Johor Bahru with Medical Departures.

If you ever wished that you could rid of the lines and wrinkles on your face and get the glow back on your skin, then a chemical peel may be just what you need. Facials and home skin care can only do so much as they affect only the most superficial layer of skin. A chemical peel can go much deeper and actually peels the skin. As the new skin grows, the lines and wrinkles go away as do the blotches, blemishes and pigmentation, leaving younger and smoother skin.

Chemical peels are available in varying strengths. While the superficial peels can be done in cosmetic salons, deep ones are best done under the supervision of an experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon.

Superficial peels are slightly stronger and more effective than a facial as they deeply exfoliate the skin. The acids used for these peels are glycolic acid or alpha hydroxyl acid or salicylic acid. Trichloroacetic acid in a mild form is a stronger chemical peel and is considered a medium peel. The same in a stronger dilution is used for deep chemical peels.

Why consider chemical peel in Johor Bahru?

If you want to get any esthetic treatment done, you have to look out for affordable options. Johor Bahru is certainly more reasonably priced for such treatments when compared to advanced countries like Australia. If you are planning a holiday in this vibrant city, which sees hundreds of thousands of tourists annually, then it makes sense to get more value for your money by combing some desired cosmetic treatment which you may otherwise find unaffordable. Depending on the kind of chemical peel you want, it may be a good idea to get your holiday in before the treatment as the deeper ones may have a longer downtime.

The city is a premier medical tourism destination. It is also a busy and interesting place to go to as it has much to offer different kinds of tourists. Whether you like sightseeing, shopping or are a foodie, you can be sure that Johor Bahru meets all your needs as well as offering other attractions, including a zoo, golf courses and the Danga Bay waterfront.

Why can’t you book on your own?

You’ll want to be sure that the facilities you book with have proper hygiene and safety measures in place, or are signed up to recognized protocols, like the International Standards Organizations. While you can get light peels done at a cosmetic salon, deeper peels always need to be done only under medical supervision. Some of the peels can result in unwanted side effects and reactions if not done properly. These include chemical burns, pigmentation and scarring. You really should not take any risk by booking on your own for a deep peel.

How long do chemical peels take and what is the estimated recovery period?

The process can take between 45 minutes to an hour. Usually the skin is first cleaned and then a topical anesthetic is applied. The product is then left on for the designated time period and washed off or neutralized after that. For deep peels, you may need a local anesthetic as there can be considerable pain. After deep peels you may even require some bandages.

Light peels do not require downtime, but after medium peels, if you get scabs and skin crusts you may want to stay indoors for a few days. You will need to keep out of the sun and/or use sun screen. After a deep peel you will need at least a week of recovery period. During this time you have take good care of your skin and follow medical advice regarding taking care of the skin and whether or not you need any medicines.
