One of the most popular forms of skin treatments at clinic is a skin face peel. This simple and non-invasive procedure is effective at treating a wide range of skin conditions including improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimising acne and acne scarring and improving skin texture and skin pigmentation such as age spots and uneven skin tone. The benefits of facial peels include immediate improvements after the first treatment, resulting in instantly younger and smoother looking skin.
We can treat the face and neck area with skin peels.
We prepare and cleanse the face at the start of the procedure, before applying the peel solution to your skin. As the peel starts to work, your skin may feel warm and start to turn red, and you may notice a slight stinging sensation. The amount of time the peel is left on your skin varies between 10 and 25 minutes, depending on the concentration of the peel and the condition we are treating.
We have a range of different peels available at the clinic. Your practitioner will discuss the best option for your specific skin concerns.
A patch test for skin peels is not always required but may be carried out at your request or if your practitioner suggests.
Skin peels are generally well tolerated. Your skin may feel warm and start to turn red, and you may notice a slight stinging sensation.
The normal side effects of skin peel treatments are not severe, and may include: redness, flaking skin, itchy skin, slight irritation, sensitivity to the sun. Some patients may also notice a white ‘frosting’ on your skin following a treatment. This is harmless and is due to the formation of acid crystals, which you can easily wash or wipe off. Rare side effects include scarring, changes in pigmentation, blisters, scabbing, crusting or extreme sensitivity.
All our skin peel treatments are carried out by our skin experts with over 10 years experience in skin and laser procedures.
We ask that you attend the clinic without make-up if treating the face. You will be required to stop using some skincare products such as Obagi skincare, retinol or tretinoin for approximately one week prior to treatment.
