Skin Peels

Advanced skin peels can:

Improve the general appearance of the complexion, including clarity and tone
Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Help to treat acne and also improve the appearance of acne scarring
Minimise the appearance of sun spots and pigmentation
Our peels are also not just for the face, but can also be used on the neck, back and chest as required. We offer a range of advanced skin peels, and will tailor the product used in line with your specific concerns and skin type to generate clinically proven results. A single treatment generally takes just 30 minutes, but a course of peel treatments spaced four to six weeks apart may be recommended for optimal results.

While there are no general side effects, the following should be borne in mind:

The skin will look pink immediately after the treatment, and then will begin to peel two to three days afterwards. Full recovery usually takes seven to ten days depending on the depth of the peel used.
People prone to cold sores should be prescribed Zovirax two days prior to the peel.
The freshly peeled skin may exhibit heightened photosensitivity, hence it is advisable to stay out of the sun for six to eight weeks post-treatment.
Contra-indications include:

Pregnancy or breast feeding
Aspirin allergy
Active cold sores
Current or recent use of retinol products or Accutane / Roaccutane for treatment of acne
Current use of another peeling programme
