After the peel it is normal to experience some redness. The dead skin then starts to peel 3-7 days following the treatment. Some peels are considered ‘no downtime’, where brighter skin is revealed without any visible peeling at all.

What is a Skin Peel?
A skin peel uses a chemical agent to exfoliate the outer layers of the skin and stimulate cell turnover, revealing fresh, radiant skin. Skin peels are ideal for refreshing and revitalising skin that looks tired, dull and lacking in radiance. They can also be used to treat acne, sun damage, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles and scarring.
How does it Work?
Skin peels remove damaged outer layers of skin to reveal smoother, younger-looking skin beneath.
Depending on the depth of the peel, we use glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), salicylic, mandelic acid and lactic acid based skin peels.
How is the Treatment Administered?
Following a full consultation, assessment and diagnosis, the correct peel will be prescribed for you, depending on your skin type and skin concern. The skin is cleansed and prepared, before the peel is applied. The peeling agent will remain on the skin for 5-15 mins depending on which peel is being used, before being washed off. Your skin is then moisturised and protected with a broad spectrum SPF.
