Chemical peel? Acid Peel? Skin peel? What is it?

The names "Chemical Peel" and “Acid Peel” can sound intimidating, however, you won't leave our clinic looking like Samantha from that one episode of Sex and the City! The post-peel reality is a glowing, healthy complexion!

A Skin Peel, which is a much nicer term, is a safe, controlled, effective treatment performed by our highly trained therapists. Something important to note is each Skin Peel we have in the clinic is different and the outcome of your Skin Peel Treatment will depend on the type of Skin Peel performed by your therapist.

When receiving a Skin Peel Treatment in the clinic it will always be tailored to your specific skin needs.

So… What is a Skin Peel?

A Skin Peel is an advanced Facial treatment that can exfoliate and remove dead skin cells from the outer layer of the skin more effectively than other forms of exfoliation such as physical or manual exfoliation. In the clinic, we can achieve a lot more than just the removal of dead skin cells as we have a wide range of Skin Peels with a huge range of benefits.

A course of Skin Peels is recommended to help to improve/target the appearance of your skin concerns whether its texture, visible signs of aging or pigment.

Below is an image that briefly shows how deep some Skin Peels can penetrate the skin.

Can I have a Skin Peel?

Absolutely! Peels are easy to work into a busy lifestyle as they don't take long to perform and they have very minimal downtime.

We recommend prior to having a Skin Peel treatment that you have a consultation in the clinic so we can make a plan to target your concerns and understand your individual needs and desires. If necessary, you will be recommended specific skin care which will facilitate the best results and decrease the risk of unwanted side effects to ensure the best treatment possible. 

How often can I have a Skin Peel?

This will depend on the depth of the Skin Peel treatment and the condition of your skin. At your first consultation, a treatment plan to reach your skin goals will be put in place with specific durations made between bookings. Usually, four to six treatments are required at 2-4 week intervals but this can vary according to skin type, degree of skin damage and the desired levels of improvement.
