What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that removes the top layer of the skin, leading to visibly improved appearance. Peels are often categorised by their depth: superficial, medium and deep. The deeper the peel, the more dramatic skin improvement can be achieved. However, there is also an associated higher risk of complications, increased pain and longer healing time. Peels can be used to effectively treat a variety of conditions such as:

  • Sun damaged skin
  • Acne
  • Acne scarring
  • Pigmentation
  • Lines & wrinkles
  • General skin texture and tone
