Chemical peels gently remove a controlled amount of the skin’s outer layers to promote regeneration and repair, thus improving the skin’s appearance and health. The depth and therefore the effect of a peel is determined by the product and procedure used, but there is a perfect peel for every skin.
Gentle exfoliative peels freshen the skin, whilst deep peels can smooth, tighten and correct skin problems. We tailor peels to suit a patient’s individual needs; according to whether a gentle or more dramatic result is desired and also whether the peel needs to pass unnoticed or some shedding of the skin can be accommodated.
These gentle peels penetrate the superficial layers to give clearer, smoother skin with improved hydration and a youthful glow. One treatment will brighten the skin, but a course can reduce pigmentation, wrinkles and breakouts. Treatment fits easily into life because there is usually only mild dryness after the procedure and no downtime. We use combinations of Glycolic, Phytic, Mandelic and Salicylic acids from Obagi, Jan Marini, Skinceuticals and Skintech.
These stronger peels penetrate more deeply and can achieve dramatic results including skin tightening and reduction of sun damage, pigmentation, fine lines, open pores and scarring. Some visible peeling occurs 3-7 days after the procedure.
