There’s a lot more to chemical peels than meets the eye – chemical peels can be used to treat a long list of skin concerns, including; milia, hyperpigmentation, dehydration and smoker related ageing.

How do chemical peels work with my skin and acne?

Chemical peels are a form of non-invasive beauty treatment that rejuvenate the skin by leveraging the body’s natural healing processes to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging or skin damage. The procedure involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin, which causes the top layers to exfoliate and eventually peel off.

This process is underpinned by both technical methodologies and biological mechanisms, which together contribute to the rejuvenation of the skin. Peels can help to unclog pores and reduce the severity of acne, book at any of our private beauty clinics today or text a private nurse right now on

  1. Exfoliation and Removal of Damaged Skin Cells: The chemical solution applied during a peel contains active ingredients such as alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), or phenol. These chemicals break down the bonds between skin cells, causing the outer layers of the skin to peel away. This exfoliation process removes damaged and aged skin cells from the surface, revealing fresher, younger-looking skin beneath.
  2. Stimulation of Cellular Renewal: The removal of the top layer of skin triggers the body’s natural healing response, leading to increased cell turnover. Fibroblasts, which are cells within the dermis, are stimulated to produce new collagen and elastin fibers. Collagen is the main structural protein in the skin, providing firmness and strength, while elastin gives the skin its elasticity. The increased production of these proteins helps to fill in fine lines and wrinkles from within, making the skin appear smoother and more youthful.
  3. Improved Skin Texture and Tone: By removing the outermost layers of skin, chemical peels can also improve the texture and tone of the skin. They can reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, such as age spots, freckles, and melasma, leading to a more even skin tone.

Chemical peels aren’t actually that painful

Whilst you may feel a stinging or tingling sensation during your chemical peel, you shouldn’t feel severe pain. We certainly believe the benefits outweigh any discomfort. At MedSkin Clinic your practitioner will cool your skin with a fan, should you feel any stinging sensation.

When we think of chemical skin peels, a lot of people only think about removing blemishes and imperfections. This was perhaps true of older chemical peels, but modern skin peels actually do a lot more than this. We have noticed the following trends for treatments since Medskin was founded.

  1. Face: The most common area for chemical peels, targeting wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and uneven skin tone.
  2. Neck: To reduce signs of aging and sun damage on the delicate skin of the neck.
  3. Décolletage: The chest area, often exposed to the sun, can benefit from peels to improve skin texture and reduce sunspots.
  4. Hands: To diminish age spots and improve the overall appearance of the hands.

Chemical peels range in intensity from superficial peels, which use mild acids to target the outermost layer of skin, to medium and deep peels, which penetrate further into the skin for more dramatic results. The depth of the peel determines both the effectiveness of the treatment and the length of the recovery process.

Skin peeling treatments aren’t just for the face

Chemical peels can turn back the years on skin all over the body, not just the face. If you want to look amazing from head to toe, you can opt to have a chemical peel on other areas on the body. Most popularly, body chemical peels are performed on the back, bum, shoulders and chest.

Acid face peels can be used on sensitive skin

A lot of people believe that their sensitive skin won’t be suitable for a  peel. The fact is, that there is a peel option for most skin types.
