The 'Glow' Peel
(Dry, Normal, Oily, Dehydrated, Acne, Hyperpigmentation & Ageing)
Glow Peel combines lactic acid, salicylic acid and resorcinol, creating a multipurpose solution effective in minimising the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation issues like age spots, discolouration and uneven skin tone. This formula exfoliates dead skin cells and stimulates cell renewal. To suit individual needs Glow Peel can be customised by strength by the number of layers applied.
(Multiple skin conditions)
Radiant Peel is an alpha hydroxy acid resurfacing peel containing lactic acid or lactic acid and salicylic acid combined to exfoliate dead skin cells, boost cell turnover and stimulate collagen, improving skin texture and tone. This multifunctional peel targets multiple skin conditions, including fine lines & wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, large pores and acne.
This peel is designed for people with oily and congested skin who suffer from oily T-Zone, large pores, blemishes, acne, problematic skin and uneven skin tone. The procedure begins with a refining clay mask that draws out oil, dirt and toxins from the skin leaving a brighter and clearer complexion. The chemical peel is then applied to resurface and rejuvenate the skin through the powerful ingredients of Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids. Redness can be visible immediately post procedure, however minimal downtime can be expected.
How does a chemical peel work?
When applied to the skin these acids interact with proteins causing exfoliation and peeling of the skin. Different acids cause peeling at different depths allowing us to perform superficial, medium and deep peels. Chemical peels can be used to improve acne, pigmentation, rosacea, freckling, wrinkles, skin tone and texture. It can be applied to the face, neck, décolletage, hands, feet and back.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes 30-45 minutes depending on the area treated. There will always be 45 minutes allocated to the appointment time to ensure a complete medical history and consultation has taken place, as well as enough time for clinic before photos to be taken.
What is the downtime, side effects and risks?
Downtime varies from each chemical peel, you may experience dry and tight skin the following day. Light shedding occurs anywhere from day 2-4. We strongly advise the daily use of an appropriate physical SPF following the procedure to ensure optimal results.
How long does it last?
Effectively the results continue to work over the next 2-3months with new cell regeneration. Like all cosmetic procedures, results are not entirely permanent as the ageing process continues to happen following the procedure. The requirement for a subsequent treatment will be based on age, skin integrity, depth of scarring, ethnicity and environmental factors. We generally advise a course of three.
What is the cost?
Chemical peels start from £70, a Post Procedure Kit which is complimentary with every peel should be used up to 5 days post treatment.
