Skin layers are peeled away with a skin peel to reveal younger-looking skin. A chemical solution is applied to your skin during this procedure, causing damage to the top layers of your skin. The skin layers ultimately come off to show the skin's fresher look and feel. The new skin typically has fewer lines and wrinkles, is more even in tone, and reveals a more radiant complexion.


Why might I need this procedure?

Various skin tone and texture issues can be treated with skin peels. Scars, discoloured skin, and wrinkles are treated using skin peels on the face. They can be carried out independently or alongside other cosmetic procedures. They can also be carried out at various depths, ranging from light to deep.

Skin peels are also used for:

  • Fine Lines
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Redness
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Uneven skin tone

If you believe you are an ideal candidate for a skin peel, one of our team members will assess your facial skin and determine whether this process is correct for your skin.

Types of skin peels

There are three different types of skin peels, and they are:

  • Superficial Peels - The skin's outer layer is removed with a superficial skin peel. It treats dryness, uneven skin tone, fine wrinkles, and acne. Every two to five weeks, you can receive a superficial peel.
  • Medium Peels - Skin peel procedures that penetrate deeper skin layers include medium-depth skin peels. If your skin is unevenly coloured, has deeper wrinkles, or has acne scars, a medium skin peel might be the best option. If you opt for numerous medium peels, the time between these procedures should typically take a few months.
  • Deep Peels - Deep skin peels provide a thorough exfoliation with long-lasting benefits. The period between these peels is more extensive and should occur every few years.

What does this procedure entail?

Skin peels are often carried out at our practice by a member of the Restore team without anaesthesia or with very light local anaesthesia. The peel entails covering the skin with a chemical solution and letting it rest. The top layer of the skin is extracted with this solution so that the skin can redevelop at a healthier rate. As the solution remains on the skin, you can experience some stinging or slight pain. Depending on the skin peel, the Restore team members may administer a neutralising agent to the treatment region. Most of the time, the entire region is treated at once, although deeper skin peels can occasionally be applied in smaller segments, allowing us to evaluate your response and modify treatment carefully. Stinging or burning is typical during a skin peel, but extreme discomfort is unlikely.

What can I expect after this procedure?

Many people think that skin peels hurt or have adverse side effects. All types of skin treatments will cause various reactions in different people, but for the most part, side effects from skin peels should be moderate, and recovery should be complete within two weeks. After a medium skin peel, treated regions typically heal in seven to fourteen days, but the redness may linger for months. You'll notice the skin peeling off after three to five days. It would help if you refrained from wearing cosmetics for the first two weeks following this procedure. Cosmetics can unintentionally irritate the skin and slow the healing process. The desired results typically require multiple therapy sessions. With an initial skin peel, most patients see some improvement, but after repeated treatments over several months, patients are usually pleased with the difference in their skin's appearance.


1Are skin peels safe?
Skin peels are generally safe but can cause various side effects, which Restore will aim to minimise.
2Who should not get a skin peel?
You should not get a peel if:
  • You are pregnant
  • You have a cold
  • If you are taking certain medications
  • If you have a weakened immune system
3Can skin peels be harmful?
One of the main hazards of prolonged use is the likelihood of experiencing a local reaction that could leave the skin darker than the surrounding skin. Additionally, developing skin infections is a possibility.


If you don't take time for your wellness, you will be forced to take time for your illness.
