Peels

We all dream of having smooth, youthful, glowing skin. But with skin issues like sun damage, acne, hyperpigmentation, and scarring, there are many barriers to achieving the skin we desire.

Skin peels are a simple, non-invasive solution to these common skin challenges. A skin peel, or chemical peel, involves applying a powerful exfoliating solution to the skin on the face, neck, or body to remove dead skin cells and reveal smooth, clear skin. This technique is a very popular skin care treatment because it’s useful for a variety of skin concerns, takes less than 30 minutes, and delivers fast, impressive results.

As a top dermatology clinic and aesthetic clinic in Dubai, you can trust Omnicare to provide a wide selection of the best skin peels available.

How does a skin peel work?

A skin peel uses naturally occurring acids and active ingredients to remove dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Your provider will apply the solution to your skin and allow it to sit on the skin’s surface for a minimum of several minutes to a maximum of 30 minutes, depending on the type of solution used.

The peeling process can last anywhere from 3-10 days after treatment. During the peeling process, the dead skin cells continue to shed and flake off – revealing the fresh, new skin underneath.
