Chemical peels Service

Chemical peels are customised to revive the complexion based on skin concerns and desired social downtime


Our service

Over time, dead skin cells can clog the skin leaving it looking dull, tired and grey. Chemical peels effectively exfoliate dead skin cells away to reveal brighter, fresher-looking skin beneath. By removing the damaged outer layers of skin, chemical peels’ active ingredients penetrate far deeper into the skin to target conditions including acne, sun damage, pigmentation, fine line and wrinkles, and scarring.


What to expect

Before treatment the face will be cleansed and a chemical solution or mask is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. Mild stinging may be experienced during the treatment. Skin will be red, tight, irritated or swollen after treatment. Instructions will be given after treatment for sun protection, cleansing and moisturising.
Avoid picking, rubbing or scratching the skin. For lighter peels, skin may flake mildly. For stronger peels, skin will become tight and eventually the skin will peel. With light or medium peels, more than one treatment may be needed for desired results.

Service FAQ

What is scale of pain?

Even a superficial chemical peel may produce a tingling sensation on the skin. However, this mild discomfort will typically subside once the peel solution has been neutralized. Deeper peels can feel quite active and may require the application of a numbing cream beforehand. In general, skin accustomed to the use of acids will tolerate stronger formulations.

A superficial peel can produce some redness, similar to a mild sunburn, which may last 3 to 5 days. The more intense medium and deep peels will result in noticeable redness, swelling, blistering (in the case of deep peels), and/or peeling for 7 to 14 days. Deep chemical peels may also require bandages to be applied for a few days following treatment, along with prescribed painkillers to manage the discomfort.

Immediately after a chemical peel, skin becomes more photosensitive. It is absolutely necessary that a broad spectrum sunscreen is applied daily post treatment, and that sun exposure is avoided or kept to a minimum.
