Skin peels, also known as chemical or enzyme peels, are used as a method of clinical exfoliation to resurface and rejuvenate dull skin and treat a variety of cosmetic concerns. There are acids and enzymes in peels that target different depths in the skin, thus improving different things - this aspect highlights the flexibility of peels as a highly customisable treatment option. Peels are great for lines and wrinkles, acne, texture, pigmentation and more.
Peels have gained a strong following over the last 30 years due to its effectiveness, but Chemical peeling dates as far back as Cleopatra. She is said to have bathed in sour milk to help keep her skin soft, supple and radiant. Sour milk contains lactic acid, a gentle AHA acid commonly found in chemical peels today. Typically referred to as a ‘resurfacing treatment’, peels are designed to speed up the renewal of cells in the lower layers so that they will arrive to the surface younger-looking and healthier.
We offer 2 categories of peels: Resurfacer and Advanced. Each category with different options to suit a variety of skin types and concerns.
Resurfacers are gentle treatments that aim to improve skin texture, tone and overall appearance. They involve the application of mild exfoliating agents to remove dead skin cells and stimulate cell turnover. Resurfacers are a great option for individuals with mild skin concerns, those looking for a subtle enhancement or maintenance of skin appearance and those who are new to peels. They can be customised to suit different skin types and sensitivities.

*All advanced peels require skin preparation before treatment.
A consultation is important to primarily discuss your needs and expectations. Our aesthetic practitioner will assess your medical history and suitability for the treatment.
Our practitioner will perform a thorough skin analysis so they are able to confidently advise you on the best programme for your skin health. We will also take photographs of your skin to refer back to throughout the course.
We require your skin to be prepped with specific products at home prior to your peels to enhance the treatment results. The treatment starts off with a thorough cleanse with our cosmeceutical skincare ranges, IMAGE Skincare and ZO Skin Health. Once cleansed, a layer of peel is applied over the skin and left on for a set time. It is normal to experience a hot, itchy sensation on the skin but that will soon pass. The peel is neutralised until no sensation is left on the skin. Aftercare products are applied to the skin to help the regeneration process. The procedure can be followed by Dermalux LED light treatment to help with the healing process.
Results In Progress
A course of treatments with increasingly deeper peels is recommended for optimum results. As the skin regenerates you may notice peeling/shedding. This will most likely start on day 2 post treatment and will last 2-5 days, depending on individual skin characteristics.
