Chemical skin peels are used to improve both the appearance and texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers and stimulating the skin’s remarkable regeneration process.
Peels vary from mild to medium-grade depending on your personal skin concerns and individual diagnosis.
Milder (superficial) peels effectively eliminate dead skin cells and help rejuvenate and revitalise younger skin, while medium-grade peels can help target more age-specific, deep-rooted skin concerns, including:
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Acne scarring
- The effects of smoking
- Fine surface lines and wrinkles
- Skin tone and texture
What to expect
Your journey to a radiant visage and newfound confidence begins with a comprehensive consultation and skin analysis to determine the most suitable course of treatment for your skin.
Whether you have been advised to embark on a course of chemical peels, derma roller treatments, or a combination of both, you will take home with you the appropriate serums, vitamins, peptides, facial wash & moisturisers to prep your skin prior to treatment. These targeted medications will not only prepare your skin in order to achieve maximum results from your peel but will also protect from further damage from the elements (it’s imperative that these are also used in between each treatment).
For best results, a course of 6 peels is recommended, spaced out at 2 to 4 week intervals.
The procedure itself only takes about 15 to 45 minutes. You may experience a mild tingling or warming of the skin as the peel is applied, which is perfectly normal.
Slight redness may occur, which we will conceal with medical-grade mineral makeup, but there is no downtime required, and you will be able to resume your normal daily activities immediately after your treatment! We strongly advise avoiding sun exposure for 48-hours, and it’s imperative to protect the skin with a sunblock (SPF 50+) to prevent any further damage to the newly exposed skin and prevent rebound pigmentation.
For this reason, chemical peels are an ideal course of treatment post-holiday, but if you are planning to jet off, we recommend a window of at least 4 weeks before exposing your skin to the sun.
