skin peels

Chemical peels are liquids brushed on to the face to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of new cells. The aim of this cosmetic procedure is to improve the appearance of the facial skin – for example, by reducing age spots and evening out skin tone.

Skin Peels FAQ’s

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are treatments that contain natural active ingredients (usually mild acids) that remove the surface layers of the skin. This may achieve a smoother appearance to the skin. Chemical peels are used to treat many conditions including acne, age spots, uneven skin tone, lacklustre tone and hormonal ageing.

What is involved in the treatment?

In some cases, this involves preparing your skin with a home care kit prior to the peel. The peel is then applied and it may feel a bit warm and tingly, but don’t worry, this is normal. When the expected response is achieved, the peel is neutralised. This stops the peel from working and penetrating layers of the dermis which we do not want to treat. You will not be left alone anytime during the procedure. The peel may require and aftercare kit. You will always need to apply a sun protection factor after a peel.

How will I know what peel is right for me?

You will have a full consultation with our nurse who will discuss your area of concern and the outcome you desire.

How long will the treatment last?

This is dependent on the area treated and the peel used, but will generally be in the region of 30 minutes.

How will I look after treatment?

This is dependent on the peel. Immediately afterwards there can be mild or moderate redness of the skin. This redness normally only lasts a matter of a few hours.
