Skin Peels

We have a range of different peels to suit your individual needs, they are a great way to achieve optimal results without the significant downtime. These medical strength peels exfoliate the outer layers of the skin and stimulate growth from the deeper layers. This results in fresher, smoother and more refined skin appearance. For the best results a programme of at least 3 skin peels is recommended. Your skin requires preparation for some of our skin peels with Aspect home care for 2 weeks prior to treatment. As damaged layers of skin are shed, it is common to feel mildly sun burnt after a peel. Redness, peeling and flaking can occur for a few days after treatment. In between treatments and straight after a skin peel, it is essential to use a physical sunblock. We suggest Aspect SPF 50. Treated skin becomes more sensitive to sun’s potentially damaging rays.

This is normal as the skin undergoes its regeneration process, this can be easily covered with make- up. Due to the ingredients used, this peel is unsuitable during pregnancy or breast feeding.
Pre and Post Care
Prior to having a Timeless Peel, you will have to prep your skin with one of our Vitamin A (Retinol), serums for at least 2 weeks. A consultation with one of our experienced therapists will see if this peel would be of benefit to you. This peel would not suit a first-time treatment, as it is designed as a more specific and targeted peel. This would not suit someone who is currently on isotretinoin (or within the last 6 months) would need to wait before having this treatment.
