Facial Peels

Medical grade facial peels work by dissolving the connection holding dead skin cells together on the skins surface. The process reveals a smoother, healthier skin.

Our skin peels are derived from and may contain: glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or mandelic acid, depending, on the peel used. These ingredients will exfoliate the upper, damaged layer of skin and in doing so stimulates the production of new skin cells.

Acne scarring and the unblocking of skin pores are effectively treated by our medical grade skin peels resulting in fewer fine lines, blemishes and age spots. We recommend a series of skin peels to treat acne scarring with improvements being visible after the first treatment.

Skin peels may be used in conjunction with IPL treatments over a course of a few months. Your practitioner will advise on this to obtain optimum results for a refreshed, rejuvenated, smoother blemish free appearance.

Skin Peel Questions

What are skin peels?

At Medskin Clinic we use medical grade skin peels from the Dermaceutic range. Skin peels are an effective treatment for facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation. They exfoliate the outer layers of dead skin, revealing a new skin layer with improved tone, texture, and colouration of the skin’s natural exfoliation. After consultation your practitioner will discuss the most appropriate peel for your desired needs.

How long do results of skin peels last?

Duration of results varies from person to person depending on lifestyle and other factors which will be discussed at your consultation. It is not uncommon for clients to need a course of peels at two to four weekly intervals.

Is the procedure painful?

A slight tingling sensation may be experienced on application of the peel. Your practitioner may offer a fan for coolness and comfort.

Are skin peels safe?

All treatments carry a degree of risk. If skin peels are used correctly by a trained professional any unwanted side effects are minimised however misuse of peels by untrained professionals can cause permanent skin damage, increased and long term sensitivity, altered pigmentation, infection and scarring.

Facial Peels are incredibly popular as a beauty treatment because they encourage the skin to do what it does best naturally, renew. This renewal process does, unfortunately, slow down when ageing occurs, which can lead to dull and tired-looking skin. A facial peel works by increasing the shedding of the top layer of skin which in turn boosts cell production, encouraging the skin to produce more and more skin cells. Those who undergo treatment benefit in two ways. Firstly, by clearing away the top layer of dull skin a healthy new layer beneath will be revealed allowing patients to enjoy instant results. Secondly, because cell production is boosted, patients will enjoy longer-lasting benefits when it comes to the creation of newer, healthier skin cells.

A facial peel is not painful in any way. Some people claim to feel some discomfort through the procedure, but our fully trained clinicians will ensure to minimise this for you as the peel is applied. You may, for instance, feel some tingling or itching and you might also feel a warming sensation as the peel is applied to your skin. In a way, this is good because it shows that something is happening, and the product is working. When you attend your free consultation, we will ask you lots of questions and speak to you about your desired results so that we can best match you up with one of our products. We will also speak to you about aftercare, which is incredibly important after a chemical peel. For instance, you should be very careful about wearing sun protection when you go outside for the first few days after a peel and you may need to use an intensive moisturiser. We will ensure that you are well looked after before and after your treatment so that you can achieve the best results from your peel.
