Service Description

What is a chemical peel? A chemical peel, also known as chemexfoliation or dermapeeling, uses a chemical solution to improve the appearance of your skin. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to your skin, which causes trauma or injury to your skin’s layers. The skin layers eventually peel off revealing more youthful skin. The new skin is usually smoother with fewer lines and wrinkles, has a more even colour and is brighter in complexion. Consultation will be held prior to the treatment to discuss which chemical peel is most suitable for your skin. What conditions does a chemical peel treat? Chemical peels are most commonly performed on your face, neck or hand and help reduce or improve: Fine lines under your eyes or around your mouth and wrinkling caused by sun damage, ageing and hereditary factors. Certain types of Acne. Mild scarring. Sun spots, age spots, liver spots, freckles, uneven skin coloring. Precancerous scaly spots called Actinic Keratosis. Rough skin, scaly patches, dull complexion. Dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills. Is there any discomfort expected during a peel? Skin chemical peels are very gentle and create minimal discomfort. Most patients express only a mild tingling sensation. Damaged, Wrinkled, Sun Damage, or Acne scars may require a deeper peel. This may cause a little more stinging for a few moments. Superficial and medium depth peels produce beautiful, immediate results with minimal discomfort for the majority of patients. It is advised to start on a mild skin peel and increase the intensity over time. If you do suffer any discomfort please notify Hannah. Will chemical peel make thin skin look thinner? No, having a skin chemical peel will remove surface build-up, hydrate the skin and give it a plumper, "thicker" appearance. The use of topical Retinoids, Vitamin C and Peptide products during treatment, as well as in a daily care regime, will help build the collagen and elastin network in the skin, making it stronger and more durable. How do I care for my skin during the peeling stage? You will be provided with appropriate tailored aftercare via email. Skin peels can cause peeling to the skin for a few days. It is very important that you do not pick or pull at any loose skin. Daily SPF 30-50 is a must.
