Skin Peels

Skin peels (also known as chemical Peels) are deep skin exfoliation and hydration treatments that improve your skin’s tone and appearance – and help you to look and feel younger.

What are Skin Peels?

Skin peels are enriched with antioxidants, designed to feed your skin with the right ingredients to ensure that your skin cells are protected for as long as possible, resulting in more youthful, glowing skin.

There are several different types of chemical peels that work on different layers of the skin.
The strength of the chemical peel used, will be determined by a range of factors which include our patient’s skin type and colouring, the specific skin concerns and the desired aesthetic outcomes.

Benefits of Skin Peels?

Put simply, chemical peels prevent free radicals from damaging the Mitochondria in your facial skin cells.

Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage the cells in your body (and skin). They often occur as a result of normal metabolic processes, as well as environmental stressors. The body loses its ability to combat their effects as we age which results in more free radicals and cell damage.

Mitochondria are found in human cells and they make most of the cell’s supply of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), a molecule that cells use as a source of energy. Some term Mitochondria as “the powerhouse of the cell”. Mitochondria produce energy for our cells to renew and repair.

How many treatments will I need?

You will see a noticeable improvement in your skin texture and skin tone following your first treatment – and a reduction in fine wrinkles and skin blemishes. It is good skin-health practice to schedule regular chemical peels based on your own observation of your skin’s health and vitality.

How long does the procedure take?

We allow 45 minutes for our skin peel treatment, which includes time to complete our Patient Registration Form and discuss your aesthetic goals.

Is there any downtime?

The type of peel administered to your skin, will often determine the degree of downtime. Less invasive peels will result is minimal skin redness, warm and swelling while stronger more active peels, can cause prolonged redness and swelling. In addition, you skin may shed for the following week or two post-treatment.

It is common to experience redness and, in some cases, bruising post treatment. More very rare risks may also include but are not limited to: 

  • Lightening or darkening of the skin in the treated areas 
  • Skin crusting or blistering  
  • Infection  
  • Scarring 
  • Granuloma formation  

As part of your post-treatment care plan, you will be provided with verbal and written post-treatment instructions.
