Chemical Peels


Chemical peels are a popular skin treatment for those looking to rejuvenate and revive their skin. As you age, skin can begin to appear dull and lifeless and chemical peel treatments are an efficient and effective way to combat this. Chemical peels can be used on your face, neck and hands and are a popular choice for individuals looking to rejuvenate skin or lessen the appearance of an existing skin condition.

If you’re looking to achieve smooth, flawless skin, chemical peels are an excellent choice. Designed to literally peel away the top layers of skin, afterwards you’re left with a smooth, glowing, younger looking complexion. They come in three different strengths to suit everyone, and as well as eliminating dead skin cells, they also encourage the growth of new ones. Most commonly used to even out the skin tone and eliminate age spots, chemical peels rarely require much downtime and they’re renowned for their exceptional results.

  • Three different types of  Chemical Peels to choose from

The three different types of chemical peels we offer include:

  1. Superficial – This lowest strength peel is designed to treat the epidermis, or top layer of skin only. It’s usually left on for just a few minutes, though it can be left for longer depending upon the severity of the damage you’re looking to repair. As it is a low-strength treatment, the side effects are minimal, with the most common being a tight feeling on the skin which can last for a couple of hours.
  2. Medium – These peels target the middle, as well as the top layers of skin and again they’re typically left on for just a few minutes. As it is a slightly stronger peel, some stinging or burning may be felt during the procedure. You may notice your skin turns red or brown a few days after treatment, but this will clear up within six weeks. It’s worth noting this is a potential side effect, so it’s not guaranteed it will happen.
  3. Deep – The strongest chemical peel available, it targets the deepest layers of skin and it’s usually left on for a minimum of 30 minutes. This is a more permanent procedure which doesn’t usually need to be repeated. However, it does come with more potential side effects and can be a little more uncomfortable than the superficial and medium peels.
  • Am I an ideal candidate for a chemical peel?

    Our range of chemical peels will suit most patients, though we do recommend booking a consultation as you may be better suited to a different procedure. The deep peel for example, may not be suitable for darker skin tones as it can lead to a lightening of the skin.

  • What is a chemical peel treatment?

    Chemical peel treatments are a non-surgical cosmetic procedure designed to improve the appearance of skin. A chemical solution is applied to the area of skin undergoing treatment and causes minor trauma; the skin then begins to heel and peel off. As new skin grows the area appears healthy, rejuvenated and youthful.

  • What are the benefits of chemical peel treatments?

    There are a number of benefits to a chemical peel and results are possible not only on your face, but your neck and hands also. Chemical peel treatments are common and are used to:

    • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, acne and lines around the eyes and mouth.
    • Reduce the appearance of freckles, dark patches and age spots.
    • Improve the look and feel of skin.
    • Improve areas of skin that are damaged.

    Chemical peel treatment can also be used for acne scars, hyperpigmentation and melasma.

    One of the key benefits of chemical peel treatment is that it is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure.

  • Are there different types of chemical peel treatments available?

    Depending on the condition of your skin and the desired results, different types of chemical peel treatments are available. Some chemical peels only lightly penetrate the skin and therefore can be used on all skin types. Chemical peels that penetrate more deeply cause more damage to the skin and require a longer healing time, but more serious skin conditions can be dealt with.

  • Are chemical peel treatments for use on the face only?

    No, chemical peels are not limited to use on the face only. Chemical peel treatments can be carried out on your neck and hands; the technique is the same and results are similar.

  • Who will perform the chemical peel treatment?

    All our chemical peel treatments, as well as our other treatments, are performed by one of our qualified practitioners and supervised by Doctor Maria Gonzalez.
