Chemical Peels are one of the most popular, non-invasive cosmetic procedures performed to rejuvenate the appearance of the skin and give the complexion a boost – used on the face, neck, backs, chests and hands. Peels can be a simple, fast and highly effective way to achieve radiant skin for a special event and can also be used to dramatically lessen the effects of more serious skin conditions.
A Chemical Peel simply removes a layer of damaged skin from the face by a chemical reaction to reveal a newer, healthier layer. The chemical solution applied causes trauma to the epidermis of the skin, which causes the outer layers to peel away. When the skin begins to heal, increased cell growth produces new, healthier skin layers that give the skin a more youthful appearance. We offer five different types of peel and during your consultation advice will be offered on choosing the correct peel for your concerns.
Best results are achieved and maintained from peels if the right skin care for your skin is used on a regular basis. We analyse your skin and advise the best skincare for your personal needs.
