Skin PeelsSkin Peel

Would you like softer, younger-looking skin?

Skin peels are a technique used to improve the texture and tone of the skin,  giving skin a smoother, softer, clearer look.  When a chemical skin peel is applied to the skin it removes ‘dead skin cells’ to revealing a new skin layer.   

Light Chemical Skin Peel At Laser Skin Technologies we use a combination of glycolic, lactic and salicylic acids which are perfect for fine lines, areas of dryness, uneven skin tone and pigmentation.

Medium Chemical Skin Peel For a more intensive treatment, Laser Skin Technologies also offer a Resurfacer Skin Peel, using 30% – 60% glycolic acid.  With the focus on age management, this peel improves skin hydration, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and stimulates collagen production which is the ultimate anti-aging technique.

A chemical skin peel will:

  • Improve the texture and even- tone of your skin
  • Increase the cell turnover rate of your skin
  • Improve your skin’s ability to hold moisture
  • Help your skin produce more collagen
  • Reduce fine lines
  • Decrease hyper pigmentation
  • Unclog pores and help clear up acne
  • Leave your skin feeling smooth
  • Give you a “glow”

Skin peel treatments at Laser Skin Technologies are administered by health care professionals, so you can be assured that you are in good hands. All clients receive an in-depth consultation before the first chemical skin peel treatment to identify your needs; obtain your medical history; answer any questions or concerns; and then draw up a treatment plan to suit your needs.

FAQ

How do chemical skin peels work?

Chemical skin peels work by removing the outer layers of the skin, without damaging the under layers. The under layers are forced to regenerate, resulting in smoother, softer, plumper skin. Assisting new skin renewal is an essential part of skin maintenance, and regular light peels will generally benefit all skin types, including teenage acne and mature, aged skin. Peeling can also help with the absorption of topical products like vitamin C or A.

Chemical skin peels also work well combined with laser skin rejuvenation: there’s no down time, and yet the end result is excellent.

How many chemical skin peel treatments will I need?

Between one and three peels are usually required, depending on your skin type and condition.

Do chemical skin peel treatments hurt? And is there any down time?

No, the chemical skin peel treatments at Laser Skin Technologies don’t hurt: all you’ll notice is a slight prickly sensation.

Depending on the depth of the peel, there may or may not be downtime of a day or so before peeling occurs. Normal activities can then be resumed, and within 10 days your new, healthy skin will be apparent.

Each person has a different skin type and so a different peel will suit. Laser Skin Technologies offers a free consultation prior to treatment when all aspects of the process will be discussed.

How long will the effects last?

Three peels will usually last a year, but can be repeated if necessary.

Are all chemical skin peels the same? What chemicals do you use?

Not all skin peels are created equal though: there are different kinds and different levels of peel:

  • Superficial.
  • Medium.
  • Deep.

Each of these has different degrees of downtime and regeneration, and the peel that’s right for you will depend on your skin type and your needs. This would be discussed at your free consultation prior to your treatment.

The peels used by Laser Skin Technologies are chirally correct, which means that they’re the correct molecule to be taken up by the receptors in the cells of the skin and makes them safer and more effective than other peels.

What’s more, the products we use are plant-based without artificial components, as well as having the highest percentage of active ingredients.

Are chemical skin peels safe? What are the potential complications of these peels?

Chemical skin peels have been around for many years and have not always enjoyed a good reputation. Years ago they were very abrasive and in the wrong hands could cause some harm to the skin. Even today, the wrong solution in the wrong hands can cause damage.

Fortunately there has been a lot of research done into chemical skin peels over recent years. Laser Skin Technologies has been able to tap into this research and has access to new peels which are not only effective, but also extra-penetrating in the way the active ingredients get into the deep layers of the skin to nourish, repair and protect.

Each person has a different skin type and so a different peel will suit. Laser Skin Technologies offers a free consultation prior to treatment when all aspects of the process will be discussed.

Our top quality chemical skin peel treatments at Laser Skin Technologies are always administered by health care professionals, so you can be assured that you’re in good hands.

What preparations are required for chemical skin peel treatments?

1. Schedule a consultation with us:

  • Your skin type will be determined.
  • Your medical history will be reviewed for any history of skin problems, medications, keloids or scarring, cold sores, etc.
  • Chemical skin peels will be explained fully and all of your questions answered.

2. Preparation regime:

  • Often we’ll suggest a preparation regime for a week before your treatment which enhances the effect of your skin peel.
What happens after the treatment?

Depending on the depth of the peel, there may or may not be downtime of a day or so before peeling occurs. Normal activities can then be resumed, and within 10 days your new, healthy skin will be apparent.

How much do chemical skin peel treatments cost?

The result of two chemical skin peels can be as effective as some of the very expensive rejuvenation machines available today, so this is a relatively affordable addition to your skin maintenance routine.
