Peeling principles are based on the regeneration of skin cells which naturally renew themselves every four weeks. Glycolic peels are an exfoliating technique using glycolic acid, a gel based solution (dervived from sugar cane) which removes surface cells on the top layer of the skin.

What skin issues are the peels used to treat?

Skin Peel treatments are designed to significantly improve the appearance and health of the skin, smoothing rough, dry and sun damaged skin and reducing fine lines and age spots with minimal downtime.Many skin problems are associated with an excessive build up of dead skin cells, which make the skin thick and dull, usually clogging the pores.Skin peels can offer a revolutionary way to effectively treat ageing skin, acne, reduce sun damage and hyper pigmentation. This procedure can also help the skin to appear smoother, healthier, plumper and firmer.

How is the treatment carried out?

The Skin Peel treatment takes 30 minutes; we begin by cleansing the skin of any impurities. Then the Glycolic gel is applied to the skin using a cotton tipped applicator (similar to a large cotton bud), during this time you may find the skin a little tingly and itchy but this sensation will be mild and will pass within a few minutes. Once the gel has been absorbed by the skin it will be rinsed using water and sponges. Then a mask will be applied, specific to your skin type. Once removed we will apply a moisturizer and a sunscreen to protect the skin before you leave.

What does the skin look like afterwards?

Often referred to as the “Lunchtime Peel” redness following the treatment will be minimal, you should be able to return to your normal daily activities immediately. There is little or no actual peeling following the treatment, some people with dry skin may experience some mild flakiness in the days following treatment however most will not experience this. The skin will continue to improve for up to a week following treatment.
