Chemical Peels

An old favourite but still very misunderstood, chemical peels are one of the most effective treatments to achieve a smoother and brighter complexion and significant downtime is not necessary to get great results.

To be able to treat and target your skin concerns and skin type, we are proud to offer two professional, medical grade brands (AlumierMD and 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

  • 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 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. Due to our brands’ unique technology, we can deliver a chemical peel with little to no downtime.

Chemical Peels

FAQ

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 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 much more and with 50% less redness and peeling!

Superficial chemical peel

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 peel

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 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 peel

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 by 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. 

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 3-10 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.
