How will my skin benefit?
Skin peels can benefit your skin in lots of ways:
- Clarity: achieve clearer, more balanced skin for a rejuvenated appearance, and reduce blackheads, clogged pores and acne scarring
- Luminosity: brighten skin and reduce dullness, giving it a radiant look
- Surfacing: exfoliate dead skin cells to reveal the fresher, smoother and younger skin beneath
- Ageing: create a more youthful appearance by diminishing lines and wrinkles caused by sun damage, as well as age spots and pigmentation
Where can I have a skin peel?
Chemical peels are used primarily on the face, but it might be possible to have them elsewhere on the body. Just ask us at your consultation. It may be that one of our other treatments is recommended for your concern.
How many peels will I need?
You’ll likely need a course of 4-6 peels to achieve the best results, but most of our clients see results even from their first treatment. That’s because in the first week following the procedure, the uppermost layer of skin will being to gently peeled away. This means that chemical peels can produce results faster than other anti-ageing treatments, such as anti-wrinkle injections.

We give all our clients in-depth aftercare advice when signing up for treatment, however, there are a few main things we’ll advise. The first is to generally avoid products on the skin in the first few days, since it may feel sensitive or tight. We also recommend wearing sun protection to take care of the new young skin emerging.
How long do chemical peel results last?
You can expect results to last anywhere from 2-6 months, depending on your peel, and provide you with follow our aftercare and the recommended number of sessions.
