Everything You Need to Know About Chemical Peels

With their ability to address a number of skin concerns, chemical peels are the go-to treatment for individuals looking to rejuvenate and revitalize their skin.

Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments designed to exfoliate the skin, promoting the shedding of dead cells and stimulating the growth of new, healthier skin. Our clinic offers four unique levels of peels, tailored to meet you where you're at on your skincare journey. While the 101 Peel is ideal for beginners, we offer a range of intensities.


Professional Consultation: Schedule a free consultation with one of our skincare professionals to determine the most suitable peel for your skin type and concerns.

Skincare Regimen Adjustment: Discontinue the use of harsh skincare products containing retinoids or acids at least one week prior to the peel.

Hydration: Ensure your skin is well-hydrated in the days leading up to the treatment.

Benefits of Chemical Peels:

Chemical peels, across all levels, offer a wide array of benefits, making them a versatile solution for various skin concerns, including:

Acne: Peels help unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and prevent future breakouts.

Scarring: The exfoliation process promotes cell turnover, diminishing the appearance of scars over time.

Hyperpigmentation: Uneven skin tone is addressed through the removal of pigmented cells, revealing a brighter complexion.

Large Pores: Peels tighten pores, refining the skin texture and reducing the appearance of enlarged pores.

Ageing: Fine lines and wrinkles are minimized, contributing to a more youthful and radiant appearance.

Treatment Process:

Regardless of the peel level chosen, the general treatment process involves the following steps:

1. Cleansing: Thoroughly cleanse the skin to remove any impurities or makeup.

2. Peel Application: Apply the peel solution, carefully monitoring the duration to achieve the desired exfoliation.

3. Neutralization: Halt the exfoliation process by neutralizing the peel.

4. Moisturization: Soothe the skin with a hydrating moisturizer to promote healing.

What To Expect:

  • You may experience a tingling or mild burning sensation during the application of the peel, which is normal.
  • The entire process typically takes around 60-75 minutes, depending on the peel level.
  • Some redness is normal and expected immediately after the peel, but it usually subsides within a few hours.
  • Depending on the peel level, you may experience light to moderate peeling in the days following the treatment. This is a natural part of the exfoliation process.


Post-treatment care is essential for maintaining results and minimizing potential side effects. Consider the following:
  • It is crucial to wear sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and avoid direct sunlight for 3-5 days to protect the newly revealed skin.
  • Keep your skin well-hydrated with a gentle, nourishing moisturizer to support the healing process.
  • Refrain from using products containing retinoids or acids for the first week post-peel to prevent irritation.

Whether you're targeting acne, scarring, pigmentation, large pores, or signs of ageing, a chemical peel may be the key to unlocking your skin's full potential. Reach out to us to embark on a transformative journey toward radiant and revitalized skin!
