Dermal peels are a method of regenerating and resurfacing the skin by inducing a controlled injury to the skin. They remove the top layers skin to help induce collagen remodelling and therefore improve sun-damaged skin, wrinkles, skin texture, and the overall appearance of the skin.

We offer a range of peels to suit individual needs. The range of peels start from gentle entry level peels perfect for the beginner to very advanced which require commitment to homecare and pre/post treatment instructions to ensure outstanding results and safety.

What results can be achieved?
Dermal peels are a safe and effective treatment and work in a unique way to get fast results without the downtime of some traditional peeling treatments. They utilise exfoliating properties (enzymes, lactic acids, salicylic acids etc) to help draw the pigment to the surface of the skin. You can generally get an all over lightening effect on the skin however some pigment may completely disappear depending on the severity.
What will happen after my treatment?
Reaction to the peel may be mild to moderate peeling, a feeling of tight, dry skin with slight redness. Your therapist will prescribe suitable homecare to boost your results and alleviate the post peel responses.
Are Dermal Peels right for me?
Peels are a safe and effective treatment, but as with all professional treatments there are contraindications. You will fill out a full consult form and be advised if you are not a suitable candidate. Some contraindications are: active cold sores, open lesions, uncontrolled diabetes, lupus and auto immune disease, current Accutane or use within 12 months, Pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Is there any specific preparation or aftercare?
Yes, If you are using Retin-A (Retinol) you need to cease use 5 days prior to reduce excessive peeling. Peels will achieve the best results when a homecare regime is started at least 14 days before beginning peels. Post peel it is essential that Image Prevention + sunscreen be applied daily. Your home care regime must be followed also.
