Revive your complexion with a skin peel. A skin peel can rejuvenate the skin due to stimulating new cell growth and collagen production, helping to reveal fresher, clearer, brighter skin by using naturally occurring acids and active ingredients to deeply exfoliate and treat the skin.
Skin peels and growth factors are mixed depending upon what concerns/areas you would like to target. The specific peel mixture for you may contain; Retinol, Vitamin C, Salicylic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, DMAE, Growth factors and peptides. These are cellular activating ingredients that have a very wide range of benefits on the skin such as hydration, regeneration, anti-pigmentation, antibacterial, repairing, anti-wrinkle and firming of the skin.
Chemical peels are a diverse and customisable treatment as they are one of the only treatments that can target most skin issues, as well as being safe to apply to the body as well as the face making rejuvenation and treatment of the back, hands and chest also possible.
We offer Skin Peels in three different stages; Superficial, Medium Depth and Nano-Technology. Most of the peels we use will not give any redness or flakiness, but if you’re up for some peeling or if you need a stronger treatment then we can also assist in making your skin shed (peel). However, peeling depends on the treatment that is recommended to give you the results you desire, but don’t worry we have various peels to suit you and your lifestyle, so if you can’t face peeling you don’t have too!

Frequently asked questions
What is a Nano-Tech peel?
Unique and bespoke Nano-Tech peels are a specific technology where the active ingredients are encapsulated which allows for the transport/penetration of the peel’s active ingredients into the skin layers and releases them into the target site. This allows for smaller amounts of active ingredients required to be used due to their high level of penetration and controlled release.
They are designed to penetrate deeper and quicker into the skin accelerating cell turnover to improve skin texture, tone and reduce the ageing effect on our skin as well as other skin conditions, whilst have less visible irritation on the surface of the skin (so basically packs more of a punch with less sensation or epidermal irritation!).
How long do chemical peels take?
Depending on the size of the are being treated and the blend of treatment the whole thing can take anywhere between 30-60 minutes.
What will my skin feel like after a chemical peel?
Superficial peels have limited effects, these are often referred to as ‘lunch time peels’ as you can go straight back to your daily activities with no indication of having a treatment. Whereas, Medium peels may cause some redness and post treatment flaking. For both the skin may feel a little warm, or ‘alive’ post treatment, this is normal!
What will my skin feel like during my treatment?
This can vary depending on the ingredients used. Glycolic acid can often feel ‘prickly’, whereas TCA and salicylic acid can often feel quite warming on the skin and lactic acid barely has any sensation.
How many peels will I need?
This depends on the issue you are trying to correct, however often I prescribe 3 or 6 if trying to treat a skin issue and then review the treatment after 3 to see if the chemical blend needs to be changed or if you require a different treatment to continue with your skincare journey.
How often can I have a peel?
Every 2-4 weeks to achieve the best results, then maintenance peels every 3-6 months.
