hemical peels are useful for improving the texture and quality of the skin as well as for reducing acne scarring, …
fine lines and pigmentation. We offer and customise various treatments in order to offer you the best peel for your skin concern. Some peels may result in mild or no flaking and others in more robust peeling. The amount of peeling is not a specific indicator of the success of the peel. Many of the ingredients in the peels work at a deeper level and can effect positive changes in the skin without dramatic peeling.
Skintech Easy Phytic Peel
This is a gentle, non-sensitising peel and is perfect for first-timers, those with an impaired skin barrier, those on Roaccutane and during pregnancy. It has no down-time or active peeling and can initially be done once a week to condition the skin. Maintenance peels can be done monthly.
Skintech Easy Droxy Peel
This combination peel is our ‘red-carpet’ peel and is ideal to do 2 or 3 days before an event. It gives the skin a beautiful glow and is good for dull skin, melasma, photodamage and pigmentation. There is no active peeling or down-time and the peel can initially be done weekly and then monthly as a maintenance treatment.
Neostrata Glycolic Acid Peel
This classic Glycolic acid peel is good for gently resurfacing the skin, anti-ageing, pigmentation, acne and barrier repair. It is more intense than the Easy Phytic peel and is only minimally uncomfortable with limited flaking of the skin. It can be done monthly as a maintenance peel.
Skinceuticals Pigment Balancing Peel
This peel penetrates the skin more deeply than a pure glycolic solution and contains brightening and anti-inflammatory agents to treat hyperpigmentation, photodamaged skin and acne. The skin will have a lovely glow afterwards and the peel usually only results in mild flaking.
Neostrata Retinol Peel
The Retinol peel is medium to deep in action and is ideal for treating acne, as well as general ageing and pigmentation. It increases cell turnover and epidermal repair. The peel is not uncomfortable, but there may be flaking and increased sensitivity for 7 to 10 days afterwards. It can be repeated after 6 weeks and a course of 4 peels a year is ideal.
Skinceuticals Advanced Corrective Peel
This medium to deep peel is good for refining the pores and texture of the skin and for discolouration improvement. It may sting and itch while being applied and there will probably be some peeling and flaking afterwards. It can be done monthly, and a course of 2 to 4 peels is advised.
Skintech Easy TCA Pain Control peel
This TCA (Trichloracetic Acid) peel is combined with Phenol to give you quite dramatic results with less discomfort and down-time than a regular TCA peel. It targets deep pigmentation and can also improve fine lines and scarring.
The skin may peel quite dramatically from day 3 to 7, but the peeling is usually not so severe that it limits social interactions.
