chemical peels

A chemical peel is a non surgical facial procedure to remove the top layer of dead skin cells and some of the living skin cells at the very top of your skin. There are several types of chemical peels but all peels remove the top layers of the skin, to reveal new skin underneath which grows back as a younger fresher skin.

Chemical peels are best used for treatment of mild to moderate skin problems. They work particularly well to restore sun damaged skin and can help with very fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and lips. A peel can help restore evenness to your complexion and freshen your skin and remove some of the sun damaged areas of freckling around the cheeks.

All our chemical peels are customized to individuals’ needs to treat specific skin condition.

Chemical peel is highly effective for treating:

  • Acne
  • Acne Scarring
  • Sun and Age Spots
  • Sun Damage
  • Uneven Skin Tone
  • Fine Lines
  • Hyper-pigmentation
  • Ageing signs on hands, neck and décolleté (chest area)

The Procedure

The skin is cleansed with a specific Skin cleanser and then chemical peel is applied. The client will experience some heat or irritation throughout the application. At this point the post peel cream is applied which takes the heat out of the skin within a few seconds. The whole procedure takes about 30 minutes.

Post Treatment

  • Slight heat in the skin for a couple of hours after the treatment
  • Tightening of the skin
  • Skin shedding from approx day 3 - for 3 or 4 days
  • Stay out of the sun for a minimum of two weeks
  • Wear a high Sun Protection Factor of at least 30 for minimum of two weeks

We recommend medical Microdermabrasion in combination with your course of chemical peels for the ultimate result.
