Face Peels

Face peels are used in aesthetic medicine to give the skin an immediate and lasting radiance. Often used in medical-grade facials, they help to boost the production of new cells and levels of collagen and elastin.

We offer different types of chemical peel treatments, which are chosen depending on the needs of each patient.

A peel can help with the following:

  • To tighten the pores
  • More youthful complexion
  • Encourages collagen production
  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Makes the skin more receptive to anti-ageing serums and creams

Our peels are prepared by specialists in cosmetic dermatology and anti-ageing medicine. This guarantees the highest level of product safety and helps us to provide a first class professional
service to our patients. These peels are formulated using a glycolic or beta hydroxy acid (fruit acids).

WHAT ARE THE INDICATIONS FOR PEELS

  • Pore tightening
  • Increased skin glow or radiance
  • Encourages collagen production to smooth wrinkles
  • Evening of skin tone and lightened discolorations
  • Makes the skin more receptive to anti-ageing serums and creams
  • Reduce appearance of blemishes in acne prone skin

DIFFERENT TYPES OF PEELS

All peels contain AHA – (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) which are more commonly known as chemical peels.
Your skin care practitioner will analyse your skin to determine which strength peel will be most effective and suitable for your skin. They are all highly effective, with limited downtime.

All our peels are simple procedures with generally little or no downtime. However initially your skin may be red and sensitive with some patients experiencing itching, discomfort, burning, crusting and peeling of the superficial layer of skin.
These are all normal reactions and expected for good results.
To achieve desired results, visible flaking or peeling is not always a sign to show treatment effectiveness.
