WHAT SHOULD YOU KNOW BEFORE HAVING A PEEL?
Expert Dr Danné Montague-King, founder of DMK Skincare hat most people don’t realise is that when the skin is under attack from any type of deep trauma, it tries to defend itself, depending on how deep the attack is,’ says Danné. To maintain the skin’s strength during and after treatment, it is crucial to prepare it by balancing its pH level before applying the acid solution. Lighter skins can safely undergo a chemical peel but if you have a dark skin tone, Tanya says you should be very selective about the treatment you undergo. ‘For darker skin types, most treatments carry a higher risk due to the sensitivity and the high risk of post-in ammatory hyperpigmentation.’ Choosing peels that use more than one acid can be more bene cial as they target different skin concerns, for example, lactic acid for hydration or salicylic acid for acne. Dark skins should avoid trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels, which are too strong and are mostly used to improve more severe conditions, such as deep wrinkles and sunspots.
