About Peels

A chemical peel is a treatment designed to refine and improve a range of skin conditions. A chemical solution is applied to outer layers of the skin with the aim of either removing damaged outer layers, or stimulating their turnover through exfoliation. There are several types of exfoliation levels.

  • Level 1 peel 50% 50%
  • Level 2 peel 75% 75%
  • Level 3 peel 100% 100%

Level 1: Superficial

  • 50% 50%

Very superficial peels are designed to remove only the very superficial surface of the epidermis ( outer layer of the skin). They cause very light peeling after the treatment, with very little downtime. These can be used regularly and have minimal risk. Theses are used commonly to maintain skin health. These can be delivered by trained therapists in an aesthetic setting

This type of peel creates a slightly deeper wound in the epidermis, and there is a mild flaking for a day or two post procedure. These are usually delivered as part of a treatment program aimed at correcting an issue.

Level 2: Medium

  • 75% 75%

This type of peel penetrates to the mid layer of the skin ( dermis), and is more aggressive in it’s action.

There is more downtime as it acts on the areas of concern. Usually there are a few days of peeling/sloughing of skin and crusting, which is normal.

This should be applied by a registered nurse or Dr in a clinical setting with follow-up to be expected and often patients have a list of post-procedure instructions and home care to enable the best results and reduce the risk of infection or damage during the healing phase.

Level 3: Deep

  • 100% 100%

This type of peel will penetrate very deeply and is typically only carried out by a Plastic/cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist.

FAQs

Where can I get the treatment?

There are a variety of clinic sites that you may attend across the UK. The level of peel available will depend on the skill set of the practitioner and level of training received.  Only Skin.London approved practitioners are able to provide the treatment, and will have this denoted on the clinic web page and the practitioner will have a certificate.

What is used?

The type of peel will ultimately be selected based on your required outcomes, budget and the most appropriate peel for maximum effectiveness. You may be offered a variety of choices and our practitioner will explain these to you.

What is the downtime?

 

 This will be determined by the type of peel you have, and your ability to recover, and adherence to post procedure instructions.  Most of the superficial peels are a matter of days, whereas the advanced procedures may be days.

Is a peel painful?

Depending on the active ingredient there are a variety of sensations to be expected. Some include tingling, a feeling of heat, and tightness during and after the treatment. It is important that any discomfort be reported to the practitioner. More discomfort does not always mean more effectiveness.

How may treatments are needed?

Typically programs of treatment are 4-6 sessions spaced either days or weeks apart.

What effects can I expect?

Expected effects depend on the reason for attendance and examples include:

Acne/Congestion: Refined appearance of pores, decreased blemishes, control of outbreaks

Ageing Skin: Increased elasticity, fine lines minimised

Dehydration: Increased ability of skin to absorb products

Photo ( UV) damage: Reduced appearance of superficial Hyperpigmentation

Rosacea: Decreased inflammation and redness 

Sluggish “grey” skin: Improved skin texture and tone

Are peels safe?

Peels are very safe when delivered by specially trained practitioners and with careful adherence to post procedure care instructions. They are manufactured in specialist laboratories to international regulations and standards and are stored in accordance with manufacturers guidelines.
