Skin peels

Chemical peeling is a principally respected practice that improves many skin problems by encouraging healthier skin. Peels help to repair, restore and re-condition all skin types.

Peels have an array of diverse variations dependant on the individual’s skin specification and condition. The overall result is typically reliant on the kind of peel used. For example; it’s potency/strength, how deep they permeate/penetrate into the skin, the length of time the peel is left on for and the time to recover post treatment.

A consultation/assessment is the best way to learn which peel best suits the individual’s needs. To choose correctly, a consultant/practitioner will recommend and devise a skin programme that includes the most appropriate peel and range of skin care products to maximise the overall success of the treatment.
