Skin resurfacing peels

A chemical peel is very simply a chemical solution that can be applied to the skin. It is designed to give a deeper exfoliation than your average at-home scrub, to help actually peel off the damaged upper layer of skin to reveal new, revitalised skin underneath.

Chemical Peel Benefits

Peels are one of the most effective ways to treat signs of ageing, discoloration and UV damage. Commonly used for the face, chemical peels can also be used on the body such as the neck and hands. They can be used to correct and reduce conditions such as a damaged skin surface, pigmentation, uneven texture, lines and wrinkles. They can not only reverse these skin problems but also increase the overall health of the skin.

Peels go beyond exfoliation to provide dermal and epidermal stimulation that help stabilise skin functions and support skin renewal. Designed to improve and correct a wide range of skin disorders, each treatment helps to achieve a specific skincare goal for every patient’s skin condition, lifestyle and skin health objective.

Skin resurfacing peels FAQs


What are chemical / skin peels?

Chemical peels produce controlled injury to the skin, which promote growth of new skin and improved appearance. A variety of chemicals can be used as peeling agents and includes glycolic and salicylic.

What are chemical peels used for?

Chemical peels are used for the treatment of photo-ageing (from sun damage), wrinkles, scarring, and discoloration (including melasma, freckles, and age spots).

How long do chemical peels take?

Most peels can be performed within a few minutes, depending on size of the area being treated.

Are Peels Painful?

Chemical peels do sting but do not cause an extensive amount of pain. It’s a discomfort but you should not worry about experiencing unbearable levels of pain. Your tolerance is generally built up, with your skin health professional but you should always speak to them openly about what you can and cannot tolerate.
