A skin peel is used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin. Facial peels are intended to remove the outer layer of dead skin while exfoliating, brightening, reducing and lightening pigment, acne breakouts, and ageing skin.
Skin peels are great for all sorts of skin issues. There are many different choices of peels whether you want a quick lunch time peel or a more targeted treatment peel.

Each session take 30-45 minutes depending on the Chemical Peel.
A course of 6 peels is recommended every 2 weeks for maximum benefits.
It’s advisable to refrain from sunbathing 15 days before and after each peel session. There is no anaesthesia required and no downtime with these treatments, so you can return to work or your regular routine straight after each session.
Each peel is unique, so your therapist will require you to be on some homecare prep for level 2-4 peels.

No downtime, however some clients may experience a light exfoliation following first few days post treatment.
Homecare is given after each treatment in level 2-4.
We first carry out a deep cleanse with an active exfoliating cleanser and a degreaser to ensure the treatment area is completely clean and oil-free, after which we apply the chemical peel and leave it to work on the skin. Then we neutralise the acids and apply a moisturising mask.
During treatment, patients may experience a heating, itching or burning sensation, accompanied by a slight tightness. Afterwards, you will probably notice some dryness/peeling of the skin, but this can be controlled using the appropriate creams. Use UV protection plus hydrating and soothing cream. Avoid rubbing or picking the skin with your fingers while healing. Avoid running water directly onto your face while showering.
