How it works

This treatment is the perfect way to refresh tired or dull skin, and generally recharges skin that has been damaged through scarring or pigmentation. The peel solution regenerates the skin by removing dead cells from the surface, to reveal healthy cells underneath.

What to expect

A peeling solution is applied to the skin to cause an exfoliation effect. Once this is removed new and healthy cells are underneath. Different types of peeling agents work in different ways, but the principle is the same. A course of prescription peels can help return the skin cell turnover function to normal. It leaves the skin looking fresher and more radiant whilst improving common skin concerns such as acne, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles.

As mentioned previously, we use different products to suit our clients. Our favourite peels are CLINICARE and are as follows:

1. Glow Aha Peel – helps hyperpigmentation, age spots and dull or tired-looking skin

This is a superficial glycolic acid (28%) peel that exfoliates the skin, encouraging the growth of new skin cells. Removing the dead skin cells, leaves your skin feeling rejuvenated, fresh and awake again. With added Kojic Acid (4%) to aid with brightening and reducing the appearance of dark areas of the skin, it’s a pigmentation facial that produces great results.

2. Pure BHA Peel – ideal to hydrate and rejuvenate sensitive skin and skin prone to acne

This mild salicylic acid (20%) peel is derived from willow tree bark that is both anti-inflammatory and antiseptic – a perfect solution for skin breakouts.

This BHA peel also has a mild anaesthetic effect to reduce the pain associated with acne. Combined with lactic acid (12%) and glycolic acid (12%), this facial peel stimulates the production of collagen and reduces the amount of surface oil on the skin.

3. Refresh AHA Peel – helps to fine lines and wrinkles, firming the skin and adding moisture

Created with 48% glycolic acid, this peel strips the epidermis layer of the skin, stimulating the growth of new skin cells. This toning facial peel also contains phytic acid, which protects the skin from free radicals (often released due to exposure of sunlight), helping to repair breaks in the DNA strands and thus smoothing outlines.

With very sensitive skin, there is a possibility the skin may feel dry and possibly peel. This will all be discussed at the consultation. The case where the face would peel would generally be when using a stronger peel and we use peels up to the strength of 38%, which we gradually increase each visit to get the skin used to the peel.
This is a normal process as the new skin cells are regenerating. The redness is just a result of the body’s natural inflammatory response.
