What are skin peels?

Skin peels utilise the power of naturally occurring ingredients to stimulate new cell growth and collagen production to improve the skin’s complexion and target key concerns such as pigmentation, acne and ageing. The treatments, also commonly known as chemical peels, use non-toxic formulas to remove dead skin cells, working to revive and refresh skin.

There are different types of skin peels available.

How do skin peels work?

Chemical peels use natural acids and enzymes to exfoliate the skin, removing the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal the fresher, clearer layers below. Through this process, they encourage new skin cell growth which can reduce the appearance of pigmentation, as well as stimulate the production of collagen, plumping the skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

What are the benefits of skin peels?

Using a powerful scientifically formulated blends, our skin peels can treat a range of skin conditions and improve overall skin health:

  • Revive dull skin for a brighter complexion
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hydrate skin
  • Stimulate collagen for plumper, fuller-looking skin
  • Reduce the appearance of acne
  • Even skin tone and texture
  • Target blemishes
  • Reduce the appearance of open pores

The Treatment

Step 1 – Consultation

We will first welcome you for a consultation with one of our friendly aestheticians who will find out more about your skin concerns and what you’d like to treat with our chemical peels. They’ll then create a bespoke treatment plan that outlines your journey to healthier skin while talking through the treatment and answering any questions.

Step 2 – Your Treatment

Your treatment will then begin. We’ll first let you get comfortable before we start to apply the skin peel

which will sit on your skin before being gently removed by your practitioner.

Step 3 – Aftercare

Following treatment, you should avoid sunbathing for at least two weeks to ensure the UV rays do not damage your skin, contraindicating the benefits of your chemical peel. Those who cannot avoid sun exposure should use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.

For 24 hours, you should avoid applying makeup, and for 48 hours, you should avoid heat from showers, saunas or intense cardio. You will be able to resume waxing and other hair removal treatments after two weeks have passed. You will also be able to continue the use of topical prescriptive medications following two weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do skin peels hurt?

Skin peels will cause no discomfort. They work similarly to facials but use stronger ingredients that may lead to a slight tingling sensation as the peel begins to work.

Are skin peels safe?

Skin peels are a completely safe treatment to enjoy. They have all undergone vigorous testing on all skin types and will only be applied by trained aestheticians. All of our skin peels exclusively contain naturally occurring acids and enzymes so, with no toxic elements included, they are ideal for improving your skin health.

Will a skin peel be the right treatment for me?

Our skin peel treatments are designed to get to the root of a range of skin concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne
  • Enlarged pores
  • Pigmentation
  • Sun damage

They are also ideal if you want to give your skin a fresh start, or simply want to enhance your skin’s overall health.

What will happen after my skin peel?

Following your skin peel treatment, you will begin to notice improvements in your skin. It will start to become softer, and your complexion will brighten. However, for the best results, we recommend a course of treatments that will target your specific needs, alongside a vigorous at-home skincare regime.

When will I see results?

You will start to see the results of your chemical peel immediately after your treatment. However, you will see the full impact of your treatment over the following days as your skin begins to produce more collagen and renew its cells.
