Skin Peels

A skin peel is a non-invasive treatment with no down time and no unsightly shedding or irritation.

These powerful peels contain growth factor peptides which stimulate the cells deep within the skin to promote the production of collagen and elastin. They also contain antioxidants to combat free radical damage, retinol for anti-ageing and have an antibacterial effect. Their bioemulsion technology allows them to penetrate deep into the skin. They can safely be used on all skin types and colours.

What is it used for?

A skin peels are used to improve the tone and texture of the skin, to reduce fine lines, to fade pigmentation marks and to improve acne damaged skins. They also reduce blocked pores and the redness associated with acne conditions. Recommended for;

  • Acne
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Blocked pores
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Wrinkles and fine lines

What does the treatment involve?

After an initial consultation the treatment takes approximately 30 minutes, however if combined with Medical Microdermabrasion the treatment will last an hour. Your practitioner will cleanse and prepare your skin then cover your eyes with eye shields. The peel is painted on and activated with cold wet gauze placed over your face. There is generally minimal discomfort with a tingly feeling whilst the peel is working. The peel is left in place for up to 10 minutes then removed and serum, moisturiser and sun protection applied. If the peel is combined with microdermabrasion, this will be carried out when the peel is removed. After treatment the skin may feel warm, look rosy and may feel slightly dry for the first day however it will feel softer, smoother and appear brighter. Sunscreen must be worn for at least 4 days post peel. A skin care regime will be prescribed by your practitioner which will enhance the overall results. A recommended course of six peels 1-2 weeks apart is advised with 4-6 weekly maintenance treatments.

Will my skin peel off?

No. Your skin does not actually shed a layer as it would with a medical peel.

How long will a skin peel treatment last?

We recommend that you have an initial treatment programme of 6 peels (one every 10-14 days) and maintenance every 4-6 weeks. Many of our patients have regular follow up treatments to maintain clearer, smoother and brighter skin. You might want to combine your treatment with Medical Microdermabrasion to achieve even better results.

Can I wear makeup straight away?

We prefer you to avoid wearing makeup for 24 hours, however if absolutely essential then a mineral makeup may be applied.

Are there any special precautions I should take?

Sunscreen of factor 30 is recommended for the duration of the treatment.

Can I have skin peels when I am pregnant?

No. It is not recommended to have this treatment during pregnancy.
