Frequently Asked Questions

A chemical peel is very simply a chemical solution that can be applied to the skin. It is designed to give a deeper exfoliation than your average at-home scrub, to help actually peel off the damaged upper layer of skin to reveal new, revitalised skin underneath.

Peels are one of the most effective ways to treat signs of ageing, discoloration and UV damage. Commonly used for the face, chemical peels can also be used on the body such as the neck and hands. They can be used to correct and reduce conditions such as a damaged skin surface, pigmentation, uneven texture, lines and wrinkles. They can not only reverse these skin problems but also increase the overall health of the skin.

Peels go beyond exfoliation to provide dermal and epidermal stimulation that help stabilise skin functions and support skin renewal. Designed to improve and correct a wide range of skin disorders, each treatment helps to achieve a specific skincare goal for every patient’s skin condition, lifestyle and skin health objective.

None to very little recovery time. Some skin types can appear dry after a couple of days.

We would recommend you have this done 3-5 days before an event.

Superficial peels

These peels only penetrate and gently exfoliate the outer layer of skin (the epidermis). It’s suitable for mild skin discoloration, rough skin and for general skin rejuvenation. Your skin may feel tight for a couple of hours afterwards but will return to normal following this. However, due to the mildness of this peel, regular treatment is needed to maintain its effects. 

Medium peels

This peel can penetrate the outer and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells. This type of peel can be used to improve skin pigmentation such as freckles and age spots in addition to moderate skin discoloration, fine lines and wrinkle. It also can be used to smooth rough skin and treat skin growths such as actinic keratosis (chicken skin). With a medium intensity peel, you may experience a slight stinging sensation when the peel is applied. Your skin may also go slightly brown or red in the days following the treatment and can take up to 6 weeks to return to normal. Although, you only need to return every 6 – 12 months to maintain its benefits.
