Peels are used to remove the over-thickening of the dead layer of cells from the skin. This layer of dead skin cells contributes to wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation and sun spots. With regular peels this outer dead layer is removed and the skin becomes firmer and smoother, even in colour and texture. A series of peels may be needed to obtain optimal results on a specific skin concern.

What is the downtime?
Each specific peel will have its own associated down time. Certain peels have no downtime whatsoever, and the effects of others can range from mild dryness and flaking to visible peeling and shedding of skin. Your therapist will discuss the downtime of any peel with you prior to the appointment so you can plan accordingly.
Is it painful?
Each peel will have a slightly different sensation on the skin. Some will provide only a very mild sensation of warmth on the skin while others might produce a feeling of intense heat. Others may have a prickly or “antsy” feeling on the skin. These sensations are very short-lived and will generally only last for the duration that the peel is on the skin.
What will it feel like afterwards?
Your skin may appear slightly flushed following a peel. Over the course of a few days following the peel the skin may feel dry and there may be some flaking. In the case of a mild peel this will hardly be visible, with a deeper peel it may be noticeable peeling. Your therapist will advise you on post-treatment care to minimise any adverse effects.
Will repeated peels thin my skin?
No, because repeated peels stimulate your skin to produce collagen, increasing dermal volume, which is normally lost as you age, leading to fine lines and wrinkles.
