Chemical Peel

The chemical peel to refresh and revitalise your skin.

A chemical peel is a skin rejuvenation or skin resurfacing procedure that makes the texture of your skin smoother and gives you even skin tone by removing the top layers of dead skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR TREATMENT?

Please see our pre-treatment instructions.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO DO A PEEL?

We recommend the fall and winter season. We don’t recommend performing a peel during the summer unless you will be very cautious about avoiding prolonged exposure to the sun, and using sun protection via sunscreen, wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING THE PROCEDURE?

The complete treatment is expected to take 30 minutes, which includes ample time to address any questions you may have, and a discussion on your post peel care. The actual application procedure is approximately 15 minutes. Tolerance to the procedure varies from patient to patient. A mild tingling or burning sensation is normal. A handheld fan can be used during the procedure to minimize any discomfort, which usually subsides in a few minutes.

HOW WILL MY SKIN LOOK RIGHT AFTER?

The peels can leave a minimal redness that is expected to last no longer than 2-3 hours. You may experience mild to moderate redness after the chemical peel procedure. The extent of redness varies from patient to patient. You are advised not to wash your face for twelve hours after the treatment.

WILL I PEEL AFTER RECEIVING THE TREATMENT?

Most people experience very mild to moderate peeling 48 hours after the treatment that generally lasts for two days so essentially you have two days downtime. Even if you are one of the few people who don’t actually peel, the peel is very effective in treating the above conditions. Your post-peel regimen will be explained to you.

HOW CAN I PROTECT MY SKIN POST PEEL?

Since the new skin is more susceptible to sunburn, extra precautions should be taken to limit sun exposure for at least one week after the peel. It is imperative to use a broad spectrum sunscreen product with an SPF of 30 or higher.

WHEN CAN I RESUME MY REGULAR SKIN CARE REGIMEN?

You can resume the use of your regular treatment products after you have completely finished peeling.

HOW OFTEN CAN I HAVE THE PEEL?

Treatments can be repeated every 3-4 weeks.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?

Multiple treatments may be required to achieve desired results. The number of treatments is based on initial level of skin damage, and can vary from 3 to 6. The effect of the peel is cumulative and results are favorable when the peels are used in conjunction with  daily product regimen.

WHAT SHOULD I TRY IF I HAVE NEVER HAD A PEEL?

If you are a newbie and want something mild, then you can certainly try our lightest  peel called Light Peel  which will treat mild imperfections, and give you a brighter and more radiant complexion with very mild peeling and minimal downtime.

ARE THESE PEELS SAFE FOR DARKER COMPLEXIONS?

All our peels are safe for all skin types.

CAN PREGNANT OR LACTATING WOMEN RECEIVE A PEEL?

Peeling should not be administered to pregnant or lactating women.
