Chemical Peel in Bangkok

The Ultimate Guide to Chemical Peel in Bangkok

Make your skin glow with a chemical peel in Bangkok and take years of your face.

Chemical peels are a non-surgical way of improving the look and texture of your skin to give you a more youthful and blemish-free appearance. Although mostly used on the face, they can be used on other areas, such as the hands and neck. It is sometimes used in conjunction with microdermabrasion to give an even better result.

There are different strength of chemical peel, with downtimes varying from a few weeks to a few days, so depending on how much time you have in Bangkok it may be something you have to consider carefully if you don’t want to spend all your time inside.

Am I suitable for a chemica peel?

A chemical peel is a non-invasive procedure which removes damaged outer layers of skin with a chemical solution. It can help lessen the appearance of:

· Age or liver spots
· Fine lines and wrinkles
· Acne scarring
· Freckles
· Light Scars
· Uneven skin pigmentation
· Sun-damaged skin

Chemical peels will not work for deep wrinkles and scars, sagging or loose skin, broken capillaries or for reducing the size of pores.

How does a chemical peel work?

A solution of chemicals, based on a formula adjusted for your requirements, is carefully applied to the skin. Depending on whether you have a light, medium or deep chemical peel, the solution removes the top or deeper layers of damaged skin to promote the growth of new unblemished skin underneath.

What's involved in the procedure for a chemical peel?

For light and medium chemical peels, your skin will be cleansed before the solution is applied. It will be left on for a few minutes, during which time you may experience a tingling/slight burning sensation. It will then be washed off and neutralized with a cold compress.

For deep chemical peels the same procedure is followed, except a general anesthetic may be administered and so they must always take place in surgical conditions. After the procedure, ointment and/or a gauze may be applied.

Light and medium chemical peels will result in initial stinging and redness which should subside after a day or two. After that, over the next few weeks there is likely to be some skin crusting and skin shredding. You will be advised to avoid the sun over the next 6-8 weeks to ensure the new skin remains healthy.

Deep chemical peels require a longer recovery time – up to 2 weeks before you can return to work and wear make-up. You will likely experience significant discomfort immediately after the procedure for several days, as well as swelling, redness, peeling and skin crusting. It may take up to 3 months’ before your skin looks good, but one treatment usually produces dramatic results that can last for 10 years.

Why should I have a chemical peel in Bangkok?

Bangkok has an international reputation for offering good quality surgical and cosmetic treatments at competitive prices. If you are willing to invest the time to make yourself look better, you will find the facilities offered in Bangkok are second-to-none.

We must stress that while this is, in the main part, true, you should always choose your clinic and practitioner with care. Deep chemical peels are not for the faint-hearted and should always be carried out under surgical conditions by a suitably qualified and experienced doctor. For the medium and mild peels this is not necessary as they do not go to the deeper layers of the skin.

Whichever peel you decide on, you will want to be sure that it is being offered by practitioners with know-how, under hygienic conditions – whether it is in a hospital for deep peels or a beauty salon for the mild and medium peels. Ensuring your safety is paramount as, wrongly administered, a chemical peel can make your skin look worse and lead to permanent disfigurement. For a deep peel you should check out your surgeon's credentials, such as board certification or the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
