  • Dull & lifeless skin


  • Reduces fine lines & wrinkles

How do they work?

Clinical Peels work by breaking down proteins in the skin, removing abnormal and damaged cells and allowing the skins natural functions to replace them with healthier more structured cells. Depending on the depth of the peel used, stimulation of inflammation within the skin can stimulate baby collagen formation, creating a thicker healthier skin.

Is there down time?

This completely depends on the strength of peel used. Some peels you will walk out with completely glowing fresh skin ready for a special event, some of our more advanced peels you can experience 3-5 days of light to moderate shedding or peeling of the skin.

The down time is very minimal and most people feel comfortable enough to go back to work the next day. You may also wear a mineral makeup if needed.
It’s important to follow any aftercare advice given and to not pick at any skin that is shedding or peeling as this can lead to risks of pigmentation or even scarring and infection.
Your skin will be more susceptible to UV rays; therefore, it is important to protect your skin with a SPF 30+.

How long do the results last?

Skin improvements take time and with clinical peels the results are subtle however, you will achieve continuous improvements by completing a course of treatments. Most clients find that their skins texture improves and they have achieved a healthier glowing skin after just one treatment and find that this lasts for 2-4 weeks.
To ensure long lasting results it is recommended to have ongoing maintenance along with using medical grade skincare routine.

What does the treatment involve?

Following a thorough consultation to determine your skin concerns and expectations, a treatment plan and skin preparations will be recommended. (With some peels it is essential to prep skin with homecare two weeks prior to treatment)

Once a chemical peel has been chosen and consent forms are signed, your face will be cleansed and a preparation solution will be applied to remove any oils and impurities while ensuring the skin is thoroughly clean. If including LED Light to your treatment to promote healing and mitochondria stimulation this is performed now.

Depending on the type of peel this will be left on the skin for a set amount of time. Then the peel will either be removed and neutralized or in some cases massaged into the skin.
Chemical peels generally are not painful. However, some people find a tingly, stingy or hot sensation on application or when removing the peel. We can use a fan to ease any discomfort.

Following the treatment, you may feel slight tingling and your skin can appear slightly red or flushed.
