Chemical Peels

face_chin_02A chemical peel can revitalise your skin by getting rid of the layer of dead cells on the surface to reveal the new, fresh skin underneath, reducing the effects of sun damage, acne, pollutants and scarring, which build up on our skin over time.

Alongside rejuvenating your skin, this non-invasive treatment can be used to reduce mild scarring, pigmentation, fine lines and certain types of acne. There are several different types of chemical peel, and our team of experts will advise you about the type of chemical peel best suited to your skin type.

Chemical peels are suitable for a range of facial cosmetic or anti-ageing conditions including:

Facial lines

Our facial lines deepen as we age, and our skin loses its natural elasticity. Everyone’s face is different, and lines reflect the different movements and facial characteristics of different people. They can include lines on our forehead, plus:

Bunny lines

Bunny lines are horizontal wrinkled lines across the bridge of the nose. They form as we speak and make certain facial movements, but become more pronounced over time, and eventually become visible, even when our face is relaxed.

Crow’s feetCrow’s feet are the fine lines that gather at the corner of our eyes when we smile, squint or close our eyes tightly.

Dimpled/puckered chin

A dimpled or puckered chin is caused by the face’s movements becoming ingrained on our skin, and is sometimes known as the ‘marbling effect’. Although facial movements cause them initially, over time they become deeper, and remain visible, even when the skin is in a relaxed state.

Chemical peels

Q. What’s the difference between different chemical peel treatments?

A. We offer two types of facial that are generally referred to as ‘chemical peels’, although a glycolic peel is actually a deep cleansing treatment, rather than a ‘peel’. A glycolic peel is massaged onto the face like a facemask, and then cleansed off, opening pores, taking off dead skin cells and brightening the skin.

A TCA (trichloroacetic acid) peel is a dermatological peel, which is used as a collagen induction therapy, and your skin will peel. It’s suitable for skin types 1-3, and removes between 70% and 80% of fine lines, and up to 50% of scarring. It can also be used to take away freckles and skin pigmentation.

Q. What does my skin look like after a TCA peel?

A. Two to three days after a TCA peel, your skin will appear brown and suntanned; after that it will peel, which is when the new skin is revealed. Once the new skin has been revealed, you’ll have to wear SPF50+ sun cream.

Q. How many peels will I need?

A. Everyone’s skin is different, so our experts will advise you, but we generally recommend a course of four peels, approximately every ten days.

Q. Are chemical peels just for the face?

A. No, they can also be used in treatments like hand rejuvenation, to reduce the appearance of liver spots, freckles and pigmentation on delicate hand skin, and also on your décolletage.
