Chemical peels

For that fresh-faced feeling

Get fresh, glowing skin

Chemical peels, also know as skin peels, remove dead skin cells to reveal the new layer underneath.

They promote collagen growth and regeneration — leaving you with an even-skin tone and bright.

How we do our chemical peels

We'll cleanse and prepare your skin for the treatment. Then, we'll apply a chemical solution, and leave it on your skin for the required amount of time. During this time, the solution works to remove the top layer of skin, and dead skin cells, stimulating new skin cell growth and an increase in collagen production.

Collagen is a protein which forms connective tissue throughout your body, from your bones to your skin. Your body naturally produces collagen every day, but as we age, production slows down. This makes our skin less elastic the older we get.

When to get a chemical peel

You can get a chemical peel to treat a skin concern, or you can get one as a cosmetic solution. We often see a mix of both types of clients. Often, someone will get a chemical peel to reduce pigmentation or the appearance of freckles.

Our regular clients will sometimes book a chemical peel before an upcoming event, like a wedding.

What products we choose to use

Superfacial

This is a natural enzyme peel used to brighten the skin, treat imperfections and small blemishes, and brighten dull skin. This is our mildest skin peel, and there's no downtime required after receiving the treatment.

Mesoestetic & Dermaceutic Chemical Peels

Chemical peels, also known as Skin peels, promotes collagen growth and regeneration, leaving you with an even skin tone and brightness.

TCA peel

TCA stands for Trichloroacetic Acid, a type of chemical which exfoliates the skin at a dermal level. Depending on the strength of the solution, a TCA peel can be used to treat sun damage, acne scarring, pigmentation, wrinkles, and enlarged pores.

Cosmelan and Dermamelan treatment

Cosmelan is the cosmetic version, while Dermamelan is the medical-grade solution. Both are made of the same chemical compounds. We use this mask to treat melasma and hyperpigmentation, and can be used on a wider variety of skin tones.

How to prepare for a skin peel treatment

Depending on which chemical peel we use, there will be some differences in pre- and post-treatment care. Generally speaking, though, you'll need to:

  • Avoid natural or solarium tanning for a month prior
  • Avoid waxing the area to be treated two weeks prior
  • Avoid laser treatments two weeks prior

We'll give you more comprehensive information during your initial consultation.

How to care for your skin post-treatment

After receiving any kind of skin peel, you'll need to avoid sun exposure and vigilantly apply sunscreen every day. 48 hours after your treatment, you should avoid exercising, applying excessive heat to the area (such as steam baths and saunas), and steer clear of chlorinated pools.

When should I avoid receiving a chemical peel treatment?

You should avoid seeking this treatment if you have an active infection, and an injury or inflammation to the treatment area. Clients should also avoid using Retinol within one week of receiving the treatment.

You should avoid receiving a TCA peel or Cosmelan/Dermamelan treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, and if you will experience consistent sun exposure within six months post-treatment.

Does a chemical peel hurt?

Our clients say the Superfacial peel feels like a slight tingling, warm sensation. It shouldn't hurt afterwards. With our other skin peels, there will be slightly stronger sensations. But we apply topical numbing creams to assit with any potential discomfort. We can always test a patch of skin prior to performing a treatment if you're worried about experiencing pain.

How long will it take for my skin to heal?

This will depend on which peel you receive. A Superfacial peel won't peel, you'll just experience dryness and will need diligently apply the recovery moisturiser. With our other chemical peels, your skin will peel and flake for up to 10 days post-treatment.

When is the best time to get a Superfacial peel before an event?

We recommend getting a Superfacial peel the day immediately before an event. Your skin will be it's brightest the next day.
