Rejuvenate and refresh your skin using our individually tailored skin peels. By removing dull or lifeless skin cells, peels can help brighten your skin, giving you a fresher more youthful look, allowing better absorption and therefore increasing the efficacy of your skin products and reduce the appearance of open pores, blemishes, fine lines and pigmentation.
Professional peels are designed to gradually improve the appearance and texture of your skin whilst being safe and effective. For optimal results we often recommend a course of peels, or use in conjunction with other treatments.
Super Facial Papaya Enzyme Peel
Salicylic Gel Peel
Pigment Balancing Masque (yes, it is a peel)
Super Facial Papaya Enzyme Peel
A gentle peel for all skin types, including hypersensitive skins. Enzyme peels offer increased skin renewal by removing dead skin cells and stimulating cell regeneration. This leads to visible reductions in acne flare-ups, a clearer complexion, lighter and more even skin tones, and diminished fine lines and wrinkles.
Salicylic Gel Peel
Professional gel peels designed to gradually improve the appearance and texture of your skin, while being well tolerated, safe and effective. Gel Peels have been specifically developed for use with a homecare regime for optimal results, with a course of treatments, or in conjunction with other treatments. Especially suited to oily, acneic or sensitive skin, including darker complexions.
The Vitalize Peel is a unique breakthrough formula of mild acids which provides a complete, consistent, and safe peel with little or no ‘downtime’ and predictable results for all skin types. Designed to help improve sun-damaged skin; fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation abnormalities, and superficial acne scarring. Vitalise Peels can also help improve melasma.
Pigment Balancing Masque
The Pigment Balancing Masque is a customizable brightening treatment targeting hyperpigmentation to improve dramatically the uneven appearance of sun-damaged, mottled skin after a series of 4-6 treatments. The masque combines high-performance brightening and anti-inflammatory agents with a peeling acid solution to accelerate cell renewal, diminish, diffuse and localized hyperpigmentation.
What does a peel feel like?
The sensation varies and is as individual as you are, our tolerances being specific to each of us. A slight tingling sensation during the few minutes the peel is on is normal. Should a more intense sensation be experienced you should inform the clinician carrying out your treatment immediately. Your clinician will stay with you throughout the treatment.
How will my skin look and feel after treatment?
Slight redness and increased skin sensitivity are normal side effects, as well as flaking of dry skin for a period of up to five days as dead surface cells are eliminated. Your skin will feel tighter, softer and smoother than usual.
How many treatments will I need?
Optimal results are delivered with a course of treatments, including continued homecare. Depending on your specific requirements a one off treatment to boost your skin or for a special occasion may be suitable. Regular treatments will maintain your skin at its best, as skin is constantly renewing itself and producing those dead cells which then build up on the surface of the skin.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are extremely rare but occasionally can result in headaches, nausea, dizziness or burning. Less severe effects may include temporary ‘hot spots’ or crusting.
What results can you expect?
Peels can help visibly soften fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone and texture, reduce symptoms of oiliness, and help to reduce the appearance of blemishes and pigmentation.
What procedures can be used with skin peels?
Results may be enhanced by the use of IPL, microdermabrasion or dermaroller treatments, depending on your specific requirements and suitability.
