The Concern:

Skin peels are ideal for clients who want to rejuvenate the skin and reduce acne, blemishes, wrinkles, fine lines, and scars. Chemical peels can reduce or improve fine lines and wrinkles, acne, scars, uneven skin colouring, and other skin imperfections. These treatments are great as a one-off blast of rejuvenation, but usually more effective when booked as a course.

The Solution:

Skin peels can offer a revolutionary way to effectively treat ageing skin, acne, reduce sun damage and hyperpigmentation. This procedure can also help the skin to appear smoother, healthier, plumper, and tighter. The powerful blend of ingredients in skin peels works to visibly reduce the appearance of open pores, remove dead skin cells, target blemishes, acne, and pigmentation, and visibly smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment stimulates new cell growth and collagen production, helping to reveal fresher, clearer, brighter skin. Each peel produces a varying level of chemical exfoliation to treat different conditions, classified as light, medium, or deep.

The Method:

Skin peel treatments make use of acids and enzymes to exfoliate away layers of the skin to reveal fresher, clearer, more youthful-looking skin beneath the surface. Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that can be applied to the face, hands, and neck. They’re used to improve the appearance or feel of the skin. During this procedure, chemical solutions will be applied to the area being treated, which causes the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off.

Before your procedure, you’ll first have a consultation with one of our highly trained skincare specialists who will determine what the best treatment option is for you.
Your face will be cleaned, and eye protection like goggles or gauze may be applied depending on the depth of treatment.

Your clinician may numb the area with a topical anaesthetic, especially if you’re receiving a deep peel. For deep peels, your doctor may also use a regional anaesthetic, which will numb large areas. They are particularly likely to do this if you’re having your face and neck treated.

Before a chemical peel, you must:

  • not use any type of retinol or Retin-A topical medication for at least 48 hours
  • inform your skincare specialist about any medications you take
  • not have been on Accutane for at least six months

The Results:

A light chemical peel improves skin texture and tone and lessens the appearance of fine wrinkles. The results are subtle but increase with repeated treatments. If you have a medium chemical peel, treated skin will be noticeably smoother. These results will be evident a few days after the procedure and will continually improve. One treatment is great, but multiple chemical peels deliver maximum results.


Some high-concentration peels will cause significant redness, we also have mild peels that work great and have minimal downtime. So your aftercare and downtime requirements will very much depend on which treatment you have opted for.
Your face is ultra-sensitive post-peel, and so a high SPF and plenty of it are recommended, alongside avoiding direct sunlight.
Coldwater can be very soothing and a chemical-free/perfume-free moisturiser is also advised.
