Chemical and medical peels, also known as medi-facials, are skincare treatments aimed at rejuvenating the skin’s appearance by promoting exfoliation and cell turnover. Peels are a great way to address a variety of skin concerns including uneven skin tone and texture, acne, scarring, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, dull and dry skin, and wrinkles.

Our skin naturally renews itself every 28 days, however, over time this process slows down or can be disrupted during certain periods like pregnancy, adolescence, and menopause. Depending on your skin goals, we apply a non-invasive solution to the skin’s surface which encourages the shedding of dead skin cells and stimulates the growth of new skin cells, leading to a refreshed, smoother, and more even complexion.

What To Expect

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do chemical peels last?

The duration of a chemical peel’s results can vary depending on several factors, including the type and depth of the peel, your skin type, and how well you care for your skin post-procedure.

Are chemical peels safe?

Chemical peels can be a safe and effective treatment for improving skin texture and addressing various skin issues when performed by experienced professionals and with proper care. It’s essential to do your research, consult with one of our experts, and follow post-treatment instructions for the best results and your safety.

What happens after my chemical peel treatment?

Right after the peel, your skin may appear red and tight. Depending on the depth of the peel, you might experience some mild discomfort or a burning sensation. Throughout the recovery process, it’s crucial to follow our post-peel care instructions:

  • Day 1-2: Redness and swelling may peak during this time, and your skin might feel sunburnt.
  • Day 3-5: Your skin may experience some peeling and flaking. To prevent scarring or infection, it’s essential to keep your skin moisturised and avoid picking at any peeling skin.
  • Day 5-7: The peeling and flaking usually subsides at this point, revealing fresher skin underneath.

The full benefits of a chemical peel may not be immediately apparent. Your skin will continue to improve in the weeks following the treatment. Depending on the type of peel, you may need multiple sessions for optimal results. Remember that individual experience may vary.

What does a chemical peel feel like?

A chemical peel can feel like a tingling or temporary burning sensation during application. Afterwards, your skin may be sensitive, similar to a mild sunburn, which can last a few hours to days, depending on the peel’s depth.

Who cannot have a skin peel?

People who should be cautious or avoid chemical peels include:

  • Pregnant or breastfeeding people
  • Those with active skin infections
  • People with certain skin conditions or sensitivities
  • Individuals on medications affecting skin healing
  • Recent sun exposure or tanning bed users
  • Individuals with known allergies to peeling ingredients
  • Those with unrealistic expectations

Always consult with our professional team before a chemical peel to assess suitability.

What is the difference between a chemical peel and a medical peel?

The terms chemical peel and medical peel are often used interchangeably. Superficial peels are lighter and address mild issues, while medium to deep peels are more intense and target significant skin concerns.

What chemicals are used in a chemical peel?

Chemical solutions typically used include glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid or carbolic acid (phenol).

When is it safe/recommended to have another chemical peel?

To maintain results, you can repeat mild and medium chemical peels. During your consultation and chemical peel, your specialist can tell you how often you can have a repeat treatment. A person can have only one deep peel.

What conditions do chemical peels address?

Chemical peels are effective in treating a wide range of skin conditions, from active acne to acne scarring, uneven skin tone to sun damage, fine lines to severe wrinkles. They are also good for rejuvenating rough and aged skin.

How long does a chemical peel treatment take?

Depending on your treatment, a chemical peel can take a few minutes to an hour.
