Chemical Peels

What is it?

The chemical peel works by assisting the skin in its cell turnover.  It encourages the surface layers of the skin which are the most damaged to flake off or ‘peel’.  This, in turn, promotes collagen rejuvenation and improves the skin’s texture and appearance. Your skin may feel a slight tingle when the peel is applied and feel very fresh and clean afterwards.

The treatment takes only minutes and there is no downtime (Depending on the type of chemical peel). Chemical peels can be performed once a week for 6-8 weeks per treatment course. It is important to combine Chemical Peels with a prescribed home skin regime and always ensure your skin is protected from the sun. We like to keep things simple so will develop the best plan to work for you. Chemical Peels can be used in combination with micro-dermabrasion and micro-needling treatments to increase the results. Disclaimer: results might vary depending on individual
