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.

If you are considering a skin peel treatment, you may be curious about the different types of peels, costs and recovery time. We have answered many of these questions below, but if there is something we haven’t covered then don’t hesitate to get in touch.
When you come to Transform, the entire experience is designed around you and your needs. We’ll listen carefully to your aspirations for being the best you, and you’ll receive all the advice and support you need throughout your journey with us. Here’s a step-by-step guide to what you can expect.
The first step is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering facial peel treatment, whether it’s right for you, the likely costs 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.
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 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 reduce facial wrinkles or treat sun damaged skin. You can discuss every aspect of your treatment with no obligation to go ahead. Our patient advisors and nurses are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have. If you feel ready to go ahead, we can book your treatment in for a date and time that suits you.
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. Our fully qualified practitioners will assess your skin and provide recommendations for ongoing treatments. Peels such as Glycolic, Epionce Lite Refresh and Obagi Blue Peel are recommended once every two weeks and are most effective when a course of peels is completed. 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.
