We use a number of different types of chemical peel to suit the specific skin problem to improve the skin's overall appearance and give a healthy glow.
CHEMICAL PEELS TREATMENT OVERVIEW
Chemical peels are used to help improve the appearance and correct imperfections and uneven pigmentation. Chemical peels work by gently removing specific outer layers of the skin in a controlled and safe way. This process improves both the appearance and health of the skin.
Chemical peels are usually applied to the face but can also be applied to the neck, decolletage and hands. Results include enhanced smoothness and texture of the skin as well as a reduction in blemishes, wrinkles and uneven pigmentation.
There are a number of different peels available and we will ascertain at your consultation which is the right one for you.

All of our peels are assessed on an individual basis depending on the desired result from gentle to more dramatic and whether or not the patient can accommodate some shedding of the skin. No anaesthesia is required. Depending on the peel there could be 6-7 days downtime.
