Proper pre-peel care will build up the skin’s strength, ensure cosmetic peels are even, and reduce the healing time after treatment.
Preparation for your peel begins 14 days before coming into the clinic. You will need to use a specialised cleanser, as prescribed by your dermal aesthetician, to cleanse your skin once a day. In addition, you need to use an SPF30+ sunscreen every day.
As each peel and its effect varies, so too will post-care treatment. While our clinicians will advise you on the specific post-care regime for your selected treatment, there is general advice that applies to all peels:
Initially, your skincare professional will discuss your concerns and note anything you wish to improve about your skin. This will help them determine the best types of peels for your specific skin, from chemical peels for acne through to chemical peels for dry skin. You will need to explain how you currently look after your skin so they can tailor a skincare routine and treatment to achieve your desired results. Your skin will be cleansed and assessed, followed by exfoliation, vitamin serums, massage and a mask. Extractions and other advanced electrotherapies may also be incorporated into your chemical peels treatment. You will leave with skin that feels smooth, fresh and revived.

The treatment process for our chemical peels will vary depending on the individual’s needs and will be tailored to suit your skin by your skincare professional.
As everyone is different, your skincare professional will work with you to plan an individual and realistic course of chemical peels treatment. You may require cosmetic peels once a month or even once every few months.
Yes. if you have sensitive skin, the face peel used will be gentle and calming to minimise any adverse reactions. Sensitive skin can benefit from professional facial treatments as it is often an impaired barrier function which encourages the skin to overreact to products. Barrier function can be restored with protective hydration and vitamins and minerals.
