Chemical Peel in Pattaya

The Ultimate Guide to Chemical Peel in Pattaya

When you have wrinkles, fine lines, spots and scars on your face, they make you look older. A chemical peel in Pattaya can give your skin the old youthful glow back. It can smoothen the skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and scars and remove fine lines. It can also help with sagging skin and crow’s feet, both of which are ageing. As it is a non-surgical treatment it is relatively safe.

There are different kinds of chemical peels, with varying effects. The three main chemical peels are:

Superficial peels – these act on the top most layer of the skin, so their effect is mild. They exfoliate the skin and reduce skin discoloration or tanning. Either glycolic acid (alpha hydroxy acid) or salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid) is used in this peel.
Medium peels – these penetrate deeper into the skin so their effect is more and longer lasting. Trichloroacetic acid in a low strength is used for medium peel.
Deep peels – these go very deep into the skin. Trichloroacetic acid in a high percentage or phenols (Baker's Phenol) may be used for deep chemical peels, and these are stronger solutions. Sometimes a mixture of different acids may be used.

The type of chemical peel has to be decided along with the surgeon or esthetician depending on the condition of your skin and your goals.

Why consider chemical peel in Pattaya?

As an esthetic procedure it is something you have to pay for. If you are going for a holiday to Pattaya, then it makes sense to get cosmetic work done there as prices are much cheaper than in Australia. However, it is a good idea to get your holiday in before getting the work done as afterwards you have to take care of your skin and avoid going out in the sun.

Pattaya is a top holiday destination since it has sand, sun and sea in great surroundings. You can enjoy the beach atmosphere or take a look at the many tourist attractions in Pattaya. You can also enjoy water sports and the multi-cultural and multi cuisine experience that it place has to offer. It has a vibrant nightlife and a clubbing culture. From Australia, you can catch a direct flight to Bangkok and then travel to Pattaya.

Why can’t you book on your own?

As AHA peels are not considered medical procedures, they are not regulated by the FDA. Therefore, some superficial or medium ones may be offered by cosmetic salons or estheticians. Many of these peels have strict instructions on usage and after care and if you go to a place where the staff is not adequately trained or there is no doctor present, you can suffer from chemical burns or worse. It is wiser not to book on your own and have a bad experience that can scar your skin and be painful.

When you book through Medical Departures, we ensure that the clinics offering these procedures are manned by qualified and trained doctors who are accredited. We also check out the ambience at the clinics and make certain that they maintain internationally-recognised standards, for example on hygiene and safety, so that you minimize your risk. We make personal visits to the places we list on our website so that you are protected.

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

A chemical peel process can take about an hour in all. Firstly the doctor will clean the skin, and then apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area. For deep peels you may get a local anesthetic or sedation. The peel is then applied and left on for the required time. After that it is washed off and the doctor will then apply a soothing cream or ointment. You should feel a tingling sensation when the doctor applies the peel, but nothing more than that. You will have to use sunscreen till the skin is fully healed and follow other skin care instructions. After some time the skin will start flaking off and as fresh skin grows, it will look and feel better.

After light peels you actually don’t need downtime, but can return to normal activities. After a medium peel, you may require to take a few days off work particularly if your skin is crusted. It will take a minimum of two weeks to heal completely. After a deep peel you need to take a week off from work as scabs may form and you may have oozing skin. It can take two-three months to heal fully. You may have burning and pain after the peel and for that you may have to take painkillers and sometimes antibiotics to prevent infection.

What is the cost of chemical peel?

The cost of chemical peel in Australia will range from AUD 150 to AUD 1,500 depending on what kind of peel you get. In Pattaya you will pay less than half the money.
