A chemical peel is a technique to improve and smooth the texture of the skin. Peels treat wrinkles around the eyes and mouth and skin discoloration. They also help with age spots, dull skin texture, and mild acne scars. Also, peels can treat the neck, chest, and hands.


How do


A peel treatment starts with a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of skin. This stimulates new skin growth. The new skin is usually smoother, less wrinkled, and more even in colour. Chemical peels may produce reddening and peeling like sunburn. This lasts a few days to several weeks, depending on the strength and depth of the chemical peel.

Frequently Asked Questions

What to expect?
Every skin type is different. Chemical peels come in varying strengths and provide different levels of treatment. We recommend you schedule a consultation to address your individual skin needs.

During the procedure, a chemical solution is applied to the skin. You may feel a burning or tingling sensation as the solution dries. This depends on the depth and type of peel you are receiving. The entire process usually takes under an hour to complete.
How long does it last?
After your treatment, your skin may experience reddening and peeling like a sunburn. This lasts a few days to several weeks, depending on the strength and depth of the chemical peel. The new skin is usually smoother, less wrinkled, and more even in color. Keep in mind that the peeling process usually takes a few days to begin and does not immediately start.

The results from your chemical peel can last up to several months. Typically, the deeper the peel, the longer it could last.
Does Medical Grade Peels hurt?
Most clients describe medical grade peels as a warm, tingly sensation. There is no serious pain or discomfort involved with the procedure. Stronger peels may provoke a stronger sensation, but clients do not require any painkillers or local anaesthetic.
