Is It Safe to Have a Chemical Peel Done?

Chemical peels are safe, however, you should keep in mind that there may be some side effects, after a mild to medium treatment patients can expect things like mild irritation, redness and peeling. These side effects are normal and will only last for a few days. The side effects of stronger chemical peels may last longer. To minimize any side effects that you may have, it is important to follow the doctor’s instructions for pre- and post-procedure care of your skin. If not done correctly some severe risks include permanent scaring, pigment change and chemical burns.

How does needle-less Mesotherapy work?

Mesotherapy is the process of injecting pharmaceutical and homeopathic medication into the mesoderm, which is the middle layer of the skin, with multiple small injections with the intention of promoting the loss of fat or cellulite. Unlike the conventional Mesotherapy treatment, Needleless Mesotherapy makes use of ultra sound which temporarily makes the skin cell membranes permeable allowing for the applied product to be absorbed into the required skin layer.
