Chemical Peels

More Information

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels are fast-acting, targeted treatments to deeply exfoliate the outermost layer of built up dead skin cells to reveal a firmer, more even toned luminous complexion. Chemical Peels are a highly effective treatment for acne, oiliness and congestion, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and sun damage.  Our experienced and educated therapists will assess your skin concerns and perform the most appropriate peel to the best results.

Treatment Customisers can be incorporated to further tailor the treatment to effectively treat your skin concerns.

Who can benefit

Chemical Peels can be used to effectively treat acne, oily and congested skins, pigmentation, sun damage, and fine lines and wrinkles. 

We also recommend Chemical Peels for people looking to achieve the following results:

Brightens and evens your complexion.

What to expect

Your treatment will include a consultation to allow your therapist to assess your suitability and to tailor your treatment to your specific concerns and needs. Your therapist will thoroughly cleanse your skin prior to applying the chosen Chemical Peel. Whilst the Chemical Peel is on your skin, you may feel a prickling/tingling sensation which is completely normal, if at any time this becomes uncomfortable let your therapist know and they will endeavour to minimalise the sensation to make you more comfortable.
