Chemical Skin Peels are a popular type of cosmetic therapy.
And we can understand why. These deep moisturising treatments strip away dead and dull skin cells to reveal younger, vibrant and smoother complexion.
Skin firming chemical skin peels are probably one of the most rejuvenating skin treatment available, and this cosmetic treatment offers many benefits, and not just for the face. Did you know that chemical skin peels are so good for your hands and neck too?
Plus, we love that a chemical skin peel is one of the ultimate personalised cosmetic therapies. Our cosmetic doctor has complete control over the strength of the peel, how deeply the peel penetrates the skin and long the peel is applied to the skin, all to suit the individual skincare needs of each client.

Chemical Peels Are Not One Size Fits All
Like all skincare and cosmetic treatments, a skin peel may not be the best option to improve your complexion.
We can adivse you on whether a skin peel will provide the skin enhancing results you are craving.
However, as a rule, chemical skin peels are not effective for those with a dark complexion or anyone with red hair and a pale, freckled complexion.
Think about the downtime involved in recovery. Skin peels create red, tender skin that heals slowly and needs gentle care. It is essential to stay out of the direct sun and use SPF30.
Also having a history of frequent or severe outbreaks of cold sores may not make this your best option. Clients with a history of cold sores are likely to see an outbreak from a chemical skin peel.
Finally, consider whether other cosmetic technology, such as the Fraxel laser can address your skin concerns. Especially for those wanting to obtain a deeper skin peel, Fraxel laser treatment offers state-of-the-art cosmetic therapy with the same risks and same complicated post-treatment care regime. We can offer you the best advice about this.

The deeper a face peel permeates the skin layers, the more pronounced the glowing skin results. However, this means a longer peeling time, which means more downtime.
