Introduction to Chemical / Skin Peels

Chemical peel treatments are a type of chemexfoliation. Chemicals are applied to the skin in order to remove the outer layers of skin to improve overall skin function and enhance appearance. They work by bringing about controlled wound healing. Their action is to remove specific layers of the skin and therefore promote wound healing which stimulates cell renewal and helps in regenerating a healthier epidermis and dermis.

Most peels, particularly superficial peels, can be used in all skin types (Fitzpatrick I–VI. However, patients with darker skin types (IV–VI) have greater risks of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation (PIH) and therefore it’s imperative that these skin types are assessed for the use of pre-peel products in order to stabilize their skin cells to avoid the increased risk of PIH.

Chemical Peels are often classified based on their depth of penetration into the skin, for example, very superficial, superficial, medium and deep. Very superficial peels penetrate the stratum corneum and possibly the upper layers of the stratum spinosum in the epidermis. Superficial peels penetrate the entire epidermis and possibly the papillary dermis. Medium depth peels penetrate through the entire epidermis and possibly the upper reticular dermis. Deep peels penetrate the mid-reticular dermis.

At your Consultation

At your initial consultation, your skin care expert will give you a thorough examination in order to fully understand and assess your skin in order to achieve your desired results. You will be advised on the best possible course of treatments and products designed specifically for your condition or desired results. Our consultations are friendly, informative and completely confidential. Our aim is to ensure your skin received the exact treatment it needs. You will also be advised on the correct after-care regime in order to achieve long lasting results. As everyone’s skin is different, we will ensure that any treatment carried out is fully compatible with your skin and that you are completely comfortable with the advised treatment. Our expert will answer any questions or concerns you may have. We are completely committed to giving you the results you want. The average skin consultation lasts around 30 minutes and you are by no means obliged to purchase a treatment package.

Your Treatment

When you arrive for your first treatments, your practitioner will fully explain the treatment and procedures, detailing any products used in order to ensure you are completely comfortable before proceeding. Depending on the treatment, a small test patch is usually carried out in order to ensure skin compatibility and nothing has changed since your consultation. You are the priority at all times and our experts are there to ensure you are comfortable and receiving the right treatment. With a course of treatments you will gradually begin to see results, although this will be explained after your treatment. There is normally a gap of 2 to 4 weeks between certain treatments which helps achieve optimal results.
