Facial peels use a chemical solution to exfoliate and remove the top layer of dead skin cells so that new skin cells can replenish, revealing a new layer of skin that will look fresher, smoother and more youthful than before.

Facial peels are powerful enough to treat wrinkles, pigmentation, acne, sun damage and scars, by resurfacing the skin. This type of accelerated exfoliation works deep into the layers of the skin to stimulate cell renewal.

A facial peel targets pigmentation caused by sun damage and superficial scarring, and decreases the appearance of wrinkles. A chemical peel is also effective in treating acne and congestion by removing build up on the skin, making way for your skincare products at home to penetrate deeper into the skin on your face.

Depending on your skin type, we may recommend a course of chemical peels to reach the desired result. This type of enhanced exfoliation will promote healthy, glowing skin.    

Let’s delve into the detail

As with all medical aesthetic treatments, it’s important to weigh up the risks involved against the benefits that the treatment can bring. Your medical aesthetic practitioner will talk you through all the risks and contraindications of the treatment.

Side effects are usually minimal. You may experience redness and flaking skin after the treatment, but this is completely normal and will pass quickly.

A facial peel may be right for you if you want to give your skin a fresh start, and if skincare products aren’t helping with pigmentation, acne scarring or an uneven skin tone.

What is a chemical peel?
A chemical face peel is a non-surgical procedure designed to give you fresher and healthier looking skin. The peel contains an acid base, which safely and effectively removes dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin. Your expert aesthetician will apply the face peel, and you’ll notice a warm sensation as the treatment starts to work on your skin. Depending on the type of chemical peel you have, a soothing cream may be applied – and you’ll notice your skin peeling around two to three days after your treatment.
Do you have any offers on chemical skin peels?
Yes, we have some great offers on our chemical peels! As our deals change regularly, we recommend you give us a call us on 0330 053 9115, email us at [email protected] or book a free consultation so we can chat through our current offers. During your consultation with your patient advisor, you’ll be given a bespoke treatment plan including the chemical peel cost in our UK clinics. They’ll explain in detail the various offers and finance options we have available, which now include 12 months interest-free credit on treatments that cost £250 or more, with no initial deposit. Please note that our finance is provided by Omni Capital Retail Finance Ltd, which is a credit intermediary regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. All finance is subject to individual status and terms and conditions apply.
What types of chemical peels do you offer?
We understand that everyone’s skin is different, and so we offer a range of different chemical peel types. The benefits vary depending on which one you choose. Typically, we offer mild, medium and deep chemical peels which contain different strengths of active ingredients to achieve different results. For instance, mild chemical face peels, such as the Obagi Blue Radiance Peel, don’t penetrate below the top layer of the skin (the epidermis). Medium strength face peels, such as Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA), penetrate to the surface of the middle layer of the skin (the dermis). Deep chemical peels, such as the Phenol peel, penetrate deeper into the dermis and are commonly used to reduce sun damage or wrinkles. During your initial consultation, your professional practitioner will chat to you about the results you’d like to achieve and the different types of chemical peels available – and advise you on which would be best for your skin’s colour, texture and needs.  
How often can I do a chemical peel?
How often you can have a chemical peel depends on the type of treatment you’re having. Many patients choose to have our mild face peels carried out regularly - for instance, once every two weeks - as part of their overall beauty regime. This helps to keep skin looking and feeling radiant, smooth and blemish-free. Medium-strength face peels such as our Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) peel can be done once every month or two to maintain results. When you speak to your friendly patient advisor, they’ll let you know how often you can do a chemical peel depending on your desired results and skin type.
What does a chemical peel do?
Essentially, both face and body chemical peels do the same thing – exfoliate the skin. Each of our skin peeling treatments is medically formulated with an acid base to remove dead skin cells safely and effectively from the top layers of the skin. Once applied, the chemical peel brings the pH of your skin to a specific level of acidity, which loosens dead and damaged skin cells and encourages cell renewal. This results in bright and radiant looking skin. You can get chemical peels for scars, to reduce lines and wrinkles, reverse sun damage and more.
Are there any chemical peel side effects?
As with most medical aesthetic treatments, you may experience some minor chemical peel side effects. Most commonly, this may be temporary dry skin, peeling or flaking, and some redness. These are completely normal after a skin peel, and they’ll gradually ease until they disappear completely after a few days. Of course, the chemical peel side effects will vary depending on the strength of the treatment you’ve had and how sensitive your skin is, but your JCCP-registered practitioner will explain this to you before your treatment so you know what to expect. They’ll also give you chemical peel aftercare advice, such as the best products to use to minimise potential side effects.
How long is the chemical peel recovery time?
Following a chemical peel recovery times can vary, depending on the type of peel you’ve had and how sensitive your skin is. For instance, if you have a mild face peel, you should be able to carry on with the rest of your day as normal following your treatment, whereas if you have a deep chemical peel, the recovery time may be between 7 and 10 days. Rest assured that your expert aesthetician will be able to advise on the likely recovery time for your procedure and answer any questions you may have. Please be aware that you’ll have particularly sensitive skin after a chemical peel, so it’s important to wear high-strength sun block following treatment.
Is there a chemical peel aftercare regime to follow to maintain the results?
We understand that your chemical face peel may just be the first step in your skin transformation journey, and we’re here to help you every step of the way. Our expert aestheticians will give you all the chemical peel aftercare tips you need to help you maintain your beautiful radiant glow following your skin peel. They’ll let you know which products to use, how best to look after your skin, and advise you about any ongoing treatments you may need. For instance, certain face peels such as our Glycolic and Obagi Blue Peel are usually most effective when treatment is carried out every two weeks as part of a chemical peel course. We’ll create a bespoke treatment plan for you during your consultation once we know exactly what results you’d like to achieve. It’s important to know that you’re likely to have sensitive skin after a chemical peel, so you’ll need to apply strong sunscreen as part of your chemical peel aftercare routine.

Next steps

We're ready when you are

Your first appointment


Your skincare journey begins when you meet your friendly and knowledgeable surgeon assistant. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering facial peeling treatment, whether it’s right for you, the likely chemical peel cost and finance options, and when you’d like to have the treatment. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our professional practitioners or nurses.

Your treatment consultation


At your free consultation, your professional practitioner or nurse will ask you about the results you want to achieve. They’ll guide you through your skin peel treatment options and create a personal plan to ensure you achieve the best results. Your treatment plan will depend on the issues that you’d like to address, whether that’s congested, dull, tired skin, fine wrinkles, skin ageing, liver spots, acne scars or sun damage.

We provide a range of medical formulation chemical peel treatments of varying strengths. Each is designed to penetrate and exfoliate to a particular depth. You can discuss every aspect of your treatment with us, with no obligation to go ahead. Our aesthetic practitioners and nurses are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have. If you feel ready to proceed, we can book your treatment in for a date and time that suits you.

The treatment


On the day of your chemical peel treatment, you’ll be able to go through any last-minute questions with your practitioner or nurse. Each chemical skin peel has a different strength of active ingredients, and therefore the treatment itself varies.

Generally, the procedure involves preparing the area to be treated and then carefully applying the chemical skin peel. It will be removed after a specific time and, depending on the type of peel, a cream may then be applied. The chemical peel works by bringing the pH of the skin to an optimum acidity level. This chemically loosens the glue that binds the dead and damaged cells, causing exfoliation and promoting new cell growth. The treatment usually takes around 30 minutes and will be carried out in one of our Care Quality Commission-registered facilities.

Recovery


You’ll be able to leave the clinic as soon as your chemical peel treatment has been completed. Some chemical peels are single skin peeling treatments, and you should be fine to go about your normal day-to-day activities with no downtime. Other types of treatment may require a chemical peel course, some of which have little or no downtime, and others with a maximum of 7 to 10 days recovery period. Your skin will be sensitive after your chemical peel, so you should always use sunblock post-treatment.

Aftercare


High quality aftercare is at the heart of what we do, so we’re here to support you. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. During your consultation, our fully qualified practitioners will assess your skin and provide chemical peel aftercare advice and recommendations for ongoing treatments where needed.
