Skin Peels

Chemical Peels are fast becoming the number one clinical skin treatment. Ideal for refreshing and revitalising skin that looks tired, dull and lacking in radiance. They work by removing damaged outer layers of skin to reveal smoother, younger-looking skin beneath.  Peels can significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation and blemishes with less discomfort and downtime. 

But what should you expect when you embark on a course of peels?

What is a Chemical Peel?

Medical grade exfoliating acids and enzymes applied to the skin to help resurface and retexture the skin by encouraging renewal of fresh new skin cells. The active ingredients determine the performance and it’s focus on the skin to reveal fresher, clearer, smoother more youthful looking skin beneath the surface. The powerful blend of ingredients in the skin peels work to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles, treat damage caused by sun such as pigmentation, sun spots and freckles. others reduce scarring, target acne and blemishes and can improve the look and feel of skin that is dull in colour and texture.

Can I just have one peel to improve my skin?

It is possible to have just a single peel, but we recommend a course of 6 to really see the long term skin benefit. Working with you over a 12 week period to visibly transform your skin through a bespoke programme of in clinic treatments and home care to achieve skin that really glows. For the best results our skin specialist will recommend the right course of skin peels depending on your skin type, tone and condition.

Pre -treatment advice & aftercare

Preparing for a chemical peel the right way ensures there is no delay in starting your skin journey. Normally, with all our peels, the pre-treatment advice involves using less concentrated forms of the active ingredients found in the skin peels. Preparing your skin in this way is essential to the the treatment and ensures your skin is in its best condition possible. Your practitioner will outline which products you’ll be required to use before and after your skin peel. These products such as SPF, serums with vitamin C and retinoids that assimilate Medik8’s philosophy.

This philosophy Medik8 is called the CSA Philosophy – which is as simple as using vitamin C + sunscreen during the day, and then vitamin A at night. Vitamin C + SPF during the day provides antioxidant protection against free radical damage and environmental aggressors (which are the main contributors that accelerate skin damage), stimulates collagen production and prevents the development of pigmentation for smoother and brighter skin. Vitamin A at night is so important in any anti-ageing routine, and does many things for the skin such as speeding up cellular renewal and controlling sebum production.

After your face peel, the care advice will usually be to continue using the same products used before your treatment as this will enhance the results of your peel. for After every peel, your expert clinician will also apply a complementary Ultimate Recovery™ Bio-Cellulose Mask, worth £60. This is a hydrating mineral sheet mask that contains zinc, hyaluronic acid and rockweed algae extract which helps to soothe the skin and harnesses the power of detoxifying natural minerals. This leaves your skin completely nourished, soothed and refreshed.
