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.

TCA Peel (medium) £150
This is a light to medium depth peel, TCA (trichloracetic acid) Peels are amazing for banishing fine to medium wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation including freckles, reduces scars and helps resurface the skin and improves texture and tone by giving you a beautiful, fresh complexion. The action of this peel is much stronger than light peels and your skin will peel significantly over the course of the following 7 days post peel.
Then the peel solution is applied in two stages. There is some stinging and a sensation of heat while the peel solution is active and if you would like a fan for cooling that is absolutely fine. If you are used to our light peels this one will feel a lot deeper but it only last for 7 minutes and is worth it.
Then we apply a soothing mask to rehydrate the skin, apply a healing cream and SPF then you can go on your way. Peeling using starts 48 hours post peel and can last up to 7 days although this varies depending on the individual. Results are usually visible once the skin normalises and will continue to improve over the coming month.
We advise no more than four of these peels per year, with two taken 3 -4 weeks apart then 6 months later another two for the best results.
Note Skin must be prepped before this peel so a full skin routine will be advised and a series of lighter peels in the run up to your first TCA will us.

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.
