Skin chemical peel rejuvenates the complexion and restores glow and lustre to the skin. They do this by gently removing a controlled amount of the skin’s outer layers, including the dead cells on the surface. This promotes regeneration and repair and improves the skin’s overall health and appearance.
health + aesthetics’ patients from throughout Surrey and Hampshire praise the benefits of our skin peels in reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles and sun damage to create smoother, brighter skin.
We offer a range of different chemical peels. The depth and therefore the effect of a peel is determined by the product and procedure used.
Do chemical peels hurt?
Modern chemical peels are NOT painful or burning. Skin peels are a relaxing and pleasant experience. Our peels are very effective but gentle enough not to cause much flaking.
What can we treat?
Gentle exfoliative peels freshen the skin, while deep peels can smooth, tighten and correct skin problems. They can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions including:
- Sun-damaged skin
- Lines and wrinkles
- Brown spots
- Oily skin
- Acne scarring
- Uneven skin tone
- Dry skin
We tailor peels to the individual, dependent on whether a gentle or more dramatic result is desired and on whether you can accommodate shedding of the skin or prefer a peel procedure to go unnoticed.
How many skin peel treatments will I need?
A course of treatments is usually recommended because the beneficial results are cumulative. We will be able to advise you about this at your consultation.
What are exfoliative peels?
These gentle peels penetrate the superficial layers of the skin to give a clearer, smoother complexion with improved hydration and a youthful glow. One treatment will brighten the skin, but a course will reduce pigmentation, wrinkles, acne and breakouts. These treatments are easy to fit into daily life because there is usually only mild dryness after the procedure and no downtime.
We use combinations of lactic, glycolic, and salicylic acids in these peels.
What are deep peels?
These stronger peels penetrate more deeply and can achieve dramatic results including skin tightening and reduction of sun damage, pigmentation, fine lines, open pores and scarring. Some visible peeling occurs for 3-7 days after the procedure.
We use trichloroacetic acid in these peels.
What is the ZO Stimulator Peel?
The ZO Stimulator peel from the ZO Range is different since there is not much downtime but the results are remarkable. The 3 Step Stimulator Peel has 3 Steps.
Step 1 – Salicyclic acid, Lactic acid and Trichloroacetic acid.
Then during Step 2 your therapist applies 6% Retinol directly after the peel and then 6 hours later some more.
Step 3 – We apply a calming cream straight after the peel and then several times for 5 days after the peel.
This peel will improve all of the conditions discussed above.
