Chemical Peel in Malaysia for A Smooth Skin Texture
Chemical peel can improve the skin’s appearance. For this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which makes it exfoliated and eventually peel off. The new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
Typically administered as a facial peel, a chemical peel enhances and smoothes the texture of the skin. It is an effective treatment for facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation.
They exfoliate the outer layers of dead skin, revealing a new skin layer with improved tone, texture, and color.
In addition to full facial rejuvenation, certain types of skin peels can also be used for spot treatments and as a way to remove stretch marks or rejuvenate skin elsewhere on the body.

The Process of Chemical Peel in Malaysia
Some aspects of the chemical peel procedure differ according to the type of peel (light or medium) being administered. However, all skin peel procedures follow the same basic protocols:
Your face will initially be cleansed before procedure. The doctor then applies the chemical peel solution. This solution is formulated according to each patient’s specific needs and goals. It is common for the patient to feel a tingling or stinging sensation as the chemical peel is applied.
After the skin peel solution has been on the skin for the prescribed amount of time, it is washed off with water or neutralised with alkaline solution. A soothing mask is then applied for around 10 minutes.
Before leaving the clinic, moisturizer and sunblock will be applied for proper protection.
