Facial peels

 

Skin peels are a way of removing dead skin cells from the skin's surface to allow new healthy cells to grow back and create smoother-looking skin. They help rejuvenate skin on the face, neck, hands, forearms and chest.

Over the years, dead skin cells can accumulate on your face and clog up your skin. A facial peel works by accelerating a natural process already taking place in our bodies. We are constantly shedding skin, so a skin peel is, at its most basic, an accelerated form of exfoliation. It can help reduce acne scarring, reverse skin damage, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, remove hyper-pigmentation, liver spots and other signs of ageing.

Here at Transform, our team guides thousands of people each year through their cosmetic treatment journey. Our specially trained practitioners and nurses will discuss the most suitable skin peel to achieve the results you want as part of your personalised treatment plan.

Chemical peels remove layers of skin so that the new, healthier layer can come to the surface. The acids within the peel work by bringing the pH of the skin to an optimum acidity level. This action chemically loosens the "glue" that binds the dead and damaged cells, causing exfoliation and allowing new cell growth.

We provide a range of medical formulation chemical peel treatments of varying strengths. Each is safe and designed to penetrate and exfoliate to a particular depth. These range from light peels such as Epionce® refresh, Obagi Blue Radiance and glycolic right through to deep phenol peels that can help to reduce facial wrinkles or treat sun damaged skin.

The purpose of skin peels is to remove blemishes, even the skin tone and improve the texture of your skin. By removing layers of skin, the peel works on sunspots, small wrinkles, acne, acne scars, liver spots, rosacea, keratosis and many other conditions that result from congested skin.

Each peel has a different strength of active ingredients and therefore the treatment itself varies. Generally, the treatment involves the preparation of the area to be treated and the careful application of the chemical peel. It will be removed after a specific time and then a cream may then be applied.

Milder ‘superficial’ peels, such as the glycolic peel, can be used to reveal fresher looking, brighter and rejuvenated skin, while stronger facial peels work at a deeper level targeting wrinkles, scars and blemishes.

Some chemical peels are single treatments and involve no downtime. Others require a course of treatments, some of which have little or no down time, and others that come with a maximum of 7-10-day recovery period. You should always use sunblock post-treatment as your skin can be quite sensitive. After any skin peel, you are free to leave the clinic as soon as you feel comfortable to do so.

Facial peels can be used as regular skin treatment to help keep skin looking smoother and fresher. Our fully qualified practitioners will assess your skin and provide recommendations for ongoing or regular treatments after your initial course of peels.

Facial Peels step by step

They’ll guide you through your treatment options and create a personal treatment plan for you to ensure that you achieve the best results. Your treatment plan will depend on the skin issues that you wish to address, whether that’s congested, dull, tired skin, small or coarse 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. These range from light peels such as Epionce®, Obagi Blue Radiance and glycolic, right through to deep phenol peels that can help to reduce facial wrinkles or treat sun damaged skin.

On the day of your treatment, you’ll be able to go through any last-minute questions with your practitioner or nurse. Each chemical peel has a different strength of active ingredients and therefore the treatment itself varies. Generally, a chemical peel involves preparing the area to be treated and then carefully applying the chemical peel. It will be removed after a specific time and, depending on the type of peel, a cream may then be applied. The treatment usually takes around 30 minutes.  The 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.

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

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the treatment itself, so we’re here to support you. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. Milder ‘superficial’ skin peels, such as the glycolic peel, can be used as an extension of your beauty regime and repeated at certain intervals to help keep skin looking smoother and fresher.

Epionce corrective facial peels are recommended once every four weeks to maintain a glowing complexion. Easy TCA peels are recommended once a week or once every two weeks, with a total of four peels in a course.
