A chemical peel is administered as a clinic procedure.  A Chemical  solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers.  The skin is smoother, with a light or medium peel, you may need to undergo the treatment multiple times to achieve the desired results.

Peels treat wrinkles, discolored skin and scars, usually on the face. You will see results with a single peel or multiple peels and they can also combined with other cosmetic procedures.

Blue Radiance Superficial Peel

A quick, superficial salicylic acid-based facial peel that exfoliates and helps improve overall complexion. It provides tighter, smoother, brighter looking skin after just a single peel, we recommend a course of 6 at 1-2 weekly intervals peels for optimum results.  There is very little downtime following this peel, you may be red for 1-4 hours and after a few days you may experience superficial flaking of the skin, but mostly the skin looks radiant post treatment.

There are two different types of peel: superficial and medium. These are categorised by the strength of the acid solution used in the peel and how deeply they penetrate the skin. Deeper peels penetrate the skin further and require greater recovery time.  Results are the determining factor when deciding.

The peel speeds up your natural skin’s healing process by stimulating the production of collagen and improving elastin fibres, these are what give skin its youthful form and shape. It also revitalizes sensitive skin and helps improve the appearance of irritated or inflamed skin.

You may feel a slight stinging or mild burning sensation with superficial peel, this lets you know the peel is working on the surface and penetrating the epidermis, the sting or burn should not be painful.  Medium depth peels can be more uncomfortable, the practitioner will give you a fan which helps during the active peel and post treatment once the peel has reached its target depth a hydrating mask is applied to the skin to soothe.

The time scale varies with some people seeing results early, around 5 days, for others it may be longer. Yet the appearance of the treated skin will have a more youthful texture with a uniform coloration that will blend with their untreated skin. New skin will appear radiant and fine lines will be diminished.
