Chemical Peels

Discover the powerful yet often misunderstood world of chemical peels. With the ability to deliver a smoother, brighter complexion, these treatments are a timeless favourite. And the best part? You can achieve remarkable results without enduring lengthy recovery periods. We are proud to offer EnerPeel as our primary medical range of chemical peels that we use in our clinic. Due to its clever patented carrier ingredient that allows greater absorption of the peel while reducing skin surface redness and peeling by up to 50%, EnerPeel offers minimal downtime and fantastic results.

To be able to treat and target your skin concerns and skin type, we are proud to offer professional, medical grade brand Enerpeel allowing us to create a customised treatment plan using a range of light to medium depth peels. The different depths of these peels mean we can either lightly exfoliate the epidermis (outer layer of skin) or work a lot deeper in the top layer of the dermis (under layer of skin) to achieve optimum results. After a consultation with our highly skilled team, we can truly create a bespoke treatment for each individual concern.

Key uses for chemical peels

  • Tired eyes/dark circles
  • General Skin Rejuvenation
  • Acne – face, chest and back
  • Rosacea
  • Hyperpigmentation – face, hands
  • Superficial scarring
  • Eye rejuvenation
  • Sun damage / dark spots
  • Brown spots on hands
  • Lines and wrinkles – face, décolletage
  • Thread veins – face

These treatments work to resurface the skin by the application of various forms of acids to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of new cells. As a result, chemical peels promote the growth of a new healthy top layer of skin which improves skin concerns over time and leaves the skin with a fresher and more radiant complexion. Gone are the days when the only immediate result one could expect from a medical-grade skin peel was 2-4 weeks of suffering painful, red, blistering skin.


Mandelic Acid (MA)

EnerPeel MA is a peel that exfoliates but with minimal or no erythema (redness). It can be left on for 2-10 minutes (depending on the number of previous peels and patient reaction) and then neutralised but for greater remodelling impact, we will leave it on the skin and send you home with a neutralizer wipe to use that evening.


  • Erythematic Telangiectatic Rosacea
  • Summer peels
  • Darker skin types
  • Anti-ageing
  • Skin remodelling
  • Inflammatory pigmentation
  • Hormonal, sun and age-related pigmentations in at-risk clients

Salicylic Acid (SA)

Designed for the treatment of acne, this Enerpeel contains active ingredients from Tebiskin OSK creams within the peel. These unique ingredients deliver a high dose of anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and sebum and cell turnover-slowing ingredients into the pilosebaceous duct, combined with salicylic acid to reduce oil, exfoliate and open up the duct opening. It is also used for controlling the inflammatory phase of papules and pustules. We can also use this on the back and chest.


  • Active acne
  • Inflamed skin
  • Very oily skin
  • Texture
  • The back and chest can be treated
  • Pore refining

Pyruvic Acid (PA)

This skin remodelling Enerpeel is the next most active acid to a TCA but with a much greater safety profile. It is a gentle, but highly effective anti-ageing medical-grade peel treatment, addressing multiple signs of ageing including open pores and pigmentation. As a keto acid, it has a sebum slowing effect like the beta hydroxyl acid Salicylic acid, but it penetrates much deeper than Salicylic acid (SA). In acne cases, after EnerPeel Salicylic acid has improved the acne, PA peels can be very useful for post-acne damage and oiliness.


  • Seborrhoea (excess oil)
  • Photo-ageing on Neck, Décolleté, Cleavage Lines
  • Loose skin, skin tightening
  • Actinic Keratosis, Photo-Ageing, Stretch Marks (red)
  • Open Pores
  • Alternative to our Salicylic Acid peel in aspirin-allergic patients

Eyes and Lips (EL)

We have previously provided a special Enerpeel for around the eyes and lips. However, we now have new technology in our clinic that will surpass any result from this method. If this area is your concern, speak with one of our highly trained therapists who can advise you of alternative methods. 


  • Photo-ageing of Peri Orbital and Peri Oral Areas
  • Anti-ageing of Peri Orbital and Peri Oral Areas
  • Lines and wrinkles of Peri Orbital and Peri Oral Areas
  • Dark circles and under eye bags
  • Crow’s feet of Peri Orbital area
  • Pout lines of the Oral area
  • Un-even skin tone & pigmentation of Peri Orbital and Peri Oral Areas

Jessner’s (JR)

A true all-rounder, EnerPeel JR is a revised Jessner’s peel named after the inventor and contains a cocktail of 3 acids; 15% Salicylic Acid, 20% Lactic Acid, and 14% Resorcinol. Lactic acid and resorcinol components are extremely useful for hormonal, age and sun related pigmentation.

Resorcinol interrupts the process of pigment formation by ‘attracting’ the enzyme tyrosinase to it and preventing it from converting tyrosine to melanin. Lactic acid also slows down the activity of the enzyme and so adds to the pigment reducing action and the exfoliation helps to remove existing pigmentation. The salicylic acid removes and penetrates oil which increases the penetration for the other two components. This peel is normally applied for up to 5 minutes but it is not neutralised and is just removed with a remover wipe or using water dampened cotton pads at 5 minutes. This is because the salicylic will have deactivated itself and we want the other two ingredients in the skin to continue to work on the pigmentation.


  • Actinic Keratosis, Melasma/Lentigo
  • Non-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation
  • Photo-ageing

TCA (Trichloroacetic acid)

EnerPeel TCA 25% is a medium to deep acting remodelling solution. Delivered within an EnerPeel carrier solution; it is taken deep into the skin before being released to increase the dermal effect on promoting maximum fibre development, whilst also stimulating old fibre matrix breakdown. Thus, bound fibres causing wrinkles and lines can be replaced by a more mobile fluid collagen-elastin matrix, resulting in visibly smoother and flatter skin. We also aim to better control epidermal trauma and erythema (redness) by reducing the TCA’s activity at the surface.


  • Ice-Pick Scars
  • Photo-ageing
  • Other scarring
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Excessive pore size

Before & After

Chemical Peels


The chemical peels can be performed every 2, 3 or 4 weeks depending on which peel we use and the concern that we are treating. We will be able to create a plan for how frequent your treatments will be. Preparation products will be recommended to allow you to get the most out of the peel treatment, as well as products to help maintain your improved skin, after the last peel.

You will have a thorough skin consultation with our Doctor or Aesthetic Therapist and the appropriate peel treatment will be advised for your skin. Dr Patel can also discuss all the management options available for specific skin conditions such as rosacea and acne.

How you feel during the treatment will depend on which peel we use to treat your concern. Most patients feel tingling and heat on the skin which usually only lasts a couple of minutes. The deeper the depth of the peel means you will feel a little more heat during the treatment.

Treatments will vary dependent on the type of peel chosen and the depth of the peel. The skin is first prepped and then the selected peel is applied and left on the skin typically from 3-20 minutes depending on patient comfort. It is normal to feel a mild tingling and heat sensation, this will normally subside after a few minutes. Some peels are self-neutralizing so will be left on the skin after leaving the clinic to safely neutralize on their own in time.

How do chemical peels work? The solution applied to your skin will lead to accelerated skin cell turnover by inducing the damage-inflammation-repair process. It is during the inflammation stage that you may experience peeling and some redness of the skin. After this, there is a resulting thickening of the epidermis (top layer of the skin), as well as deposition of collagen and structural reorganisation in the dermis (below the epidermis), making this layer thicker too. These changes even out the skin and give it a fresher and more radiant appearance. The Enerpeel® system does far more and with 50% less redness and peeling!

Superficial chemical peels

You will notice immediate but subtle improvements at first, but that healthy glow will increase with more treatments.

If you have uneven pigment, dryness, acne or fine wrinkling, a light chemical peel might be the right choice. This kind of peel removes just the outer layer of skin (epidermis) in a light exfoliation and results in a healthier glow. Your doctor or nurse will use a combination of alpha-hydroxy acids and beta-hydroxy acids, such as glycolic acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid and maleic acid. All of these chemicals are the mildest choices. We use only top branded products from ranges such as Enerpeel®

Medium chemical peels

Your skin will be noticeably smoother and fresher-looking.

Acne scars, deeper wrinkles and uneven skin colour can all be treated with a medium chemical peel. The chemicals used for this type of peel will remove skin cells from both the outer layer of skin (epidermis) and the upper part of your middle layer of skin (dermis). We will use unique treatment protocols to aim for the best result possible.

Medium-Deep chemical peels

More significant signs of ageing or perhaps scarring can be significantly reduced. With the Enerpeel® system, we can achieve an even deeper medical-grade peel treatment, whilst avoiding the significant downtime traditionally associated with this. Following your skin consultation, if your needs require a deep peel, we can provide you with a tailored treatment protocol administered by our nurse or doctor.

Chemical peels resurface the skin through the application of various forms of acid to the skin to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of new cells. As a result, chemical peels promote the growth of a new healthy top layer of skin and over time improve skin problems like hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven texture and skin impurities.
