Skin peels remove the top layers of skin to get rid of blocked pores, built up dead skin and other imperfections to reveal smoother, more evenly pigmented, plumper, tighter and younger looking skin.
They can help improve acne, hyperpigmentation, UV damage and aged skin using a carefully selected blend of chemicals to safely and efficiently remove the very top layers of skin.
What peels are available?
We have various skin peels available and we will determine which one to use based on the condition of your skin and your desired results-
Superficial peels- based on glycolic acid, such as the Neostrata peel, to remove the very top epidermal layers of the skin.
Superficial to medium peels- These remove the epidermal layer and slightly deeper.
Medium depth peels- We use Trichloroacetic acid based peels to remove the epidermal ayers and upper dermal layer.
What is the Obagi Blue Peel?
This method uses Tricloroacetic Acid (TCA) to remove the epidermal layers and upper dermal layers so is considered a medium depth peel. The blue tinge helps our practitioner to see the depth of application and shows what areas of the skin require more or less of the product. Your skin may have a blueish tinge after the treatment but this will fade after 24 hours with gentle washing. The active ingredient of TCA is very carefully controlled so is completely safe and can be used in varying depths.
This treatment is effective for more severe effects of aging including uneven pigmentation, shallow through to deep wrinkles, hyperpigmentation from acne and can be used on other areas of the body as well as the face.
As it is such a rigorous peel, you must go through a skin conditioning programme at least 12 weeks before the blue peel is applied. The actual blue peel itself only takes around 20 minutes and we will advise you on the correct aftercare procedure as well as prescribing after care products to protect and moisturise your skin as it heals itself.
Your skin will start to peel within 2 to 3 days of the treatment and this will continue for several days. Over the course of the next 4 to 6 weeks you will notice that the condition of your skin improves as well as seeing an improvement as soon as the peeling ends.
