Why have a chemical peel?

Every day, we put our skin through its paces, with UV exposure, pollutants and irritants, and diet and lifestyle all playing a role in how it looks and feels. Chemical peels can regenerate your skin and transform from deep within, achieving results that can progress over time.

What’s the science behind a skin peel?

There are three layers to our skin: the epidermis (top layer), dermis (middle layer) and hypodermis (innermost layer). Chemical skin peels can be superficial (just targeting the dermis) or penetrate the skin more deeply. Whichever you choose, this treatment helps to exfoliate dead or old cells to reveal the more youthful skin below.

What are the benefits of a skin peel?

There are lots to love about skin peels, including:

  • Refining your skin’s texture, such as smoothing or softening the way it looks and feels
  • Evening pigmentation and skin tone, targeting redness and imperfections
  • Thickening the skin and achieving more supple elasticity, stimulating collagen and elastin protein production

Best of all, a skin peel can help to give you greater confidence and build your self-esteem, especially if you’ve been dealing with concerns like dryness, acne scarring and pigmentation.

Why have a chemical peel?

It might be to target redness and pigmentation concerns or to address fine lines and wrinkles caused by sun damage. Others want to refine the appearance of acne scarring. Overall, you’re helping to improve the aesthetics of your skin with a skin peel treatment.

What do I need to know about treatment?

You’ll first have a consultation with us in Radlett, helping get to the roots of your concerns in order to recommend the right treatments. Then, we’ll carry out your skin peel, which usually takes around 1 hour. Most people don’t find it painful and just report mild tingling. A course of skin peels might be recommended for the best results. Finally, we’ll talk you through aftercare to keep results looking fantastic for longer.
