What are Medical Grade Chemical Peels?

A medical grade chemical peel is a procedure where a chemo-exfoliant agent, such as a mask, gel or liquid, is applied to an area of the body (usually the face). The agent penetrates to the desired layer of the skin and stimulates peeling.

The peeling process eliminates the surface of the skin to:

  • Stimulate collagen and elastin
  • Unify skin tone
  • Eliminates or softens wrinkles
  • Diminish pigmentation
  • Close open pores
  • Eliminate blackheads
  • Reduce blemishes
  • Purify the skin
  • Improve the appearance of scars

What happens during your consultation?

Our aesthetics nurse, Ros Bown, will carefully listen to your concerns and discuss with you the best course of treatment to attain your desired goals. Each stage of the process will be fully explained to you during this initial consultation and throughout your treatment plan.

During the treatment

Firstly, the area to be treated will be cleaned thoroughly. The peel will be carefully applied in two phases. Phase one penetrates the skin cells on the skin’s surface. Phase two goes deeper into the dermis to clear dead skin cells and toxins.

After the treatment

The solution dries quickly and you are free to resume normal activities. The solution can be washed off 5 hours after treatment. Skin shedding will occur for two days after the third day of the peel procedure. For example, if the procedure takes place on Wednesday, shedding will occur over the following weekend.
