Our chemical peels are based on organic compounds such a lactic (milk), salicylic (willow bark), and vitamin A. Lactic acid is specifically used to treat hyperpigmentation, age spots, and other factors that contribute to a dull and uneven complexion. Other benefits of AHAs like lactic acid include improved skin tone and reduced pore appearance. Our lactic acid levels range from 20 – 60% which manipulates the depth of the treatment.
Salicylic acid is one of the major players in the acne skincare game. A beta hydroxy acid (or BHA), a chemical exfoliator that works wonders to break down excess sebum (the skin’s natural oils), dirt and dead skin cells that clog pores and lead to breakouts.
These skin treatments can be done as a stand alone treatments, but when combined with a microdermabrasion and a chemical peel… BAM! Super Glowing skin!
Would you like to get fresh, glowing skin? Chemical peels increase and stimulate new skin cells, so your skin looks younger. So, what are chemical peels? They involve the application of organic compounds to the surface of your skin. Chemical face peels leave you with brighter skin and an even skin tone
Benefits of Chemical Peels
Chemical peels gently remove the top layer of your skin to promote collagen growth and regeneration. The ingredients in the chemical peel interact with your skin proteins, causing them to shed and peel to reveal a glowing complexion.
As a customisable treatment, chemical peels are a non-invasive, pain-free, walk-in, walk-out skin treatment. Chemical peel benefits include:
- Improved skin texture.
- Reduced fine lines.
- A glowing and radiant skin tone.
- Reduced hyperpigmentation (dark patches and blemishes).
Our medical-grade chemical peels include lactic acid peels and salicylic acid peels.
How Chemical Peels Work
With chemical peels, the ingredients interact with skin proteins, causing them to peel /shed (this is very subtle, no one will notice), revealing the new skin below, and speeding up cell turnover (meaning cells reproduce more and faster). Other peels work similarly, but the strength of the peel affects the number of layers of skin peeled, the length of the downtime and the final result.
Speak with our experienced Dermal Clinicians about your skin concerns or problematic skin during a consultation so they could suggest the best treatment plan to achieve healthier glowing skin.
Lactic acid medical-grade chemical peel
This chemical peel treats age spots and hyperpigmentation. Sometimes called an AHA chemical peel, lactic acid peels improve skin tone and reduce the size of your pores. This gentle yet highly effective chemical peel also enhances your skin’s ability to stay moisturised.
Salicylic acid medical-grade chemical peel
This medical-grade chemical peel uses beta hydroxy acid (BHA) to exfoliate your skin and break down excessive sebum (natural skin oils), dead skin cells and pores. Ideal for people who have acne or acne scarring, salicylic chemical peels improve your skin quality while reducing inflammation.
