This treatment works by gently removing the surface skin and encourages the re-generation of new cells which creates a smoother and more radiant appearance. This treatment has many benefits and can be tailor made to suit your skin care needs. A peel can be used as part of a protocol and alongside the medical skin care range of Tebiskin also available within the clinic to help with various skin concerns such as acne, rosacea, pigmentation and ageing skin.
We use Neostrata and Tebiskin Enerpeels with the clinic.
Cost: From £50
What can be treated with a chemical peel?
A chemical peel can be used to address a variety of skin conditions including:
- Acne scarring
- Sun-damaged skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven Skin tone
- Dry skin
Sam will tailor the type of peel used to each individual patient depending on the current issue and desired outcome.
How many treatments will I need?
This really depends on the current condition of the skin. Some patients who require a peel for dull skin tone may find that a ‘one off’ peel is satisfactory however, a course of peels may be required if we are targeting a certain skin condition.
Do chemical peels hurt?
Modern peels are not painful but some patients do experience a tingling sensation. Sam will constantly check with you to ensure your treatment remains comfortable.
How long will a peel take?
Your appointment will last between 30-60 minutes.
Is there any reason I could not have a chemical peel?
Anyone who is currently on or has taken prescribed acne medication such as Roacutane in the last 6 months.
A two week gap must be left between waxing or any injectable treatment.
