What is a Chemical Peel?
Our peels are derived from fruit enzymes and acids from natural sources such as pumpkins, or milk or nuts. Our advanced peel systems give real results, although fruit based…don’t be fooled, they are extremely effective!
We have a thorough consultation with you to discuss which areas you would like to address i.e. Anti-ageing, acne scars or other scarring and congestion or hyper-Pigmentation or all of the above and we ask about your plans for the week and if you want any (very minimal) down time. We can make the peel stronger so that you may experience some very light flaking of your skin on day 3 but we can control this or avoid this if that’s your preference.

This peel is advanced and bespoke and a consultation is performed beforehand to assess your skin and viability of this chemical peel.
Glow Peel £70
The Glow Peel contains the smallest and most effective alpha hydroxy acid, derived from sugar cane. It exfoliates the epidermis, promotes epidermolysis, and stimulates the growth of new skin. It safely removes the outer layer of dead skin cells, bringing fresh, new skin to the surface.
This alpha hydroxy acid is derived from bitter almonds. It has depigmenting properties, inhibits melanin synthesis, exfoliates and rejuvenates skin. Kojic acid is derived from a variety of fungi and organic substances and is used to diminish dark areas resulting from excessive pigmentation in the skin. It inhibits the activity of tyrosinase and prevents the formation of melanin. Arbutin acts by reversibly suppressing melanosomal tyrosinase activity and thus prevents the synthesis of melanocytes. It works synergistically with kojic acid to enhance the brightening effect.
Suitable for the following:Photo damaged skin
Rough texture, fine lines and wrinkles
Enlarged pores, dull, sallow skin color
Pure Peel £70
Lactic Acid is the mildest of alpha hydroxy acids, it has water binding properties and stimulates collagen synthesis. Glycolic Acid exfoliates the epidermis, promotes epidermolysis, disperses basal layer melanin and stimulates the growth of new skin. Glycolic acid also reduces the amount of surface skin oil.
Suitable for the following:Inflammatory and non-inflammatory acne
Blackheads and comedones
Rough texture, fine lines and wrinkles
Chemical Peel Aftercare Instructions
Please do not wash your face or apply makeup for at least 12 hours following your chemical peel.
Refrain from intensive sun light, saunas, sunbeds, steam bath and self tan and we strongly advise that you wear a broad spectrum SPF30-50 for at least 7 days following your treatment.
Avoid products other than what has been recommended to you by your practitioner as others than the recommended may interfere with the treatment result.
An intensive moisturiser is advised for at least a week as your skin may feel drier or tighter after your treatment – this is quite normal.
Avoid the use of exfoliating agents, further peeling agents (both AHA’s & BHA’s), retinoids, retinols and vitamin A products until the skin normalises which is approximately 5-7 and in some cases 14 days days post treatment.
Avoid electrolysis, depilatory creams, waxing and laser hair removal for a minimum of 1 week after treatment or until the skin normalises (can be up to 2 weeks in some cases).
Please be gentle with your skin for the next few days, wash with tepid water and/or gentle skin cleansers are used for cleansing, pat dry your skin, do not rub.
Do not peel, pick, scratch or scrape the skin, or any loose skin resulting from the treatment this must come off in it’s own time with no assistance, ignoring this advice can lead to scarring.
Adverse reactions to chemical peels are rare but can include peeling, redness, scabbing, infection, recurrence of cold sores and prolonged sensitivity to wind and sun.
