Chemical Peels in Lancashire
Chemical peels are ideal for refreshing and revitalising skin that looks tired, dull and lacking in radiance. They’re also extremely effective in targeting specific concerns including acne, sun damage, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles and scarring. We have a range of medical grade chemical peels from superficial to medium depth peels to suit your individual needs and deliver exceptional results. Here’s everything you need to know before your first chemical peel:
Peeling is exfoliation. When your skin peels or flakes after a treatment your skin is shedding dead or damaged surface cells and revealing new, healthy skin cells on the surface. This action is called cell turnover. Supporting the cell turnover process with chemical peels is what allows the skin to shed dead cells and bring new, fresh skin to the surface, free of signs of ageing, sun damage, dirt and debris. The result leaves us with glowing skin.
‘You don’t have to peel with a peel’
You won’t necessarily experience visible peeling. That doesn’t mean your treatment was ineffective. Everyone experiences different levels of peeling, dependent upon skin type, resilience, type of peel and the number of layers applied. Some people experience ‘sheeting,’ when large portions of the skin peel off at once. Some experience ‘flaking,’ when small pieces of skin peel off, similar to dry, winter skin or mild peeling after a sunburn. Others experience exfoliation that is not visible. If you don’t peel, your skin is still exfoliating. In this case, the exfoliation is happening on a cellular level that can’t be seen by the naked eye. Typically, the deeper the peel you receive, the more extensive peeling you will experience. Talk to a member of our team to see which peel is most suited for you.

“Another Celebrity favourite, this 5-acid blended peel with glutathione, vitamins and minerals, is performed only by medically trained professionals. The Perfect Peel is a revolutionary peel that will transform your skin into looking younger, healthier and clearer in just one week. The Perfect Peel can be used on all skin types and requires no pre-peel skin preparation. The process takes less than 15 minutes and is virtually pain free.”
The Treatment This unique treatment founds itself on a key anti-aging ingredient never before used in a medium depth peel: Glutathione. Glutathione is the ultimate antioxidant, penetrating deep into the cellular level of the skin to fight oxidant damage and is the anti-ageing answer to premature wrinkling. Our bodies naturally produce glutathione but as we age, our levels deplete due to sun exposure, air pollutants, environmental stress and the aging process itself. Glutathione is also proven to reverse melanin’s metabolism, lightening dark pigmentations.
The Ingredients. The Perfect Peel blends glutathione, kojic acid, TCA, retinoic acid, salicylic acid, phenol, and a blend of minerals and vitamins, including vitamin C. Kojic acid is a powerful lightening agent and proven to increase collagen and elastin production, resulting in skin that is brighter and tighter. TCA, phenol and retinoic acid reduce wrinkles and correct pigment problems, while salicylic acid exfoliates the skin and reduces inflammation. Alone the ingredients are powerful, but in combination they produce results that are astonishing.
Homekit. After your peel you are given an individual home treatment pack. This pack contains retinol wipes and a vitamin C/Glutathione moisturiser to assist the peeling process and enhance your results.
The Results. After one treatment of The Perfect Peel, overall skin tone and complexion will appear smooth, glowing and fresh. Certain skin conditions may require multiple treatments to achiever desired results. A series of 2-3 treatments applied once every 4 weeks will allow for optimal results for more severe skin conditions such as Melasma and active acne. As long as the skin is maintained with good quality skin care products such as The Perfect C serum the improved results will last. We recommend two to three treatments of The Perfect Peel per year to sustain desired results for regular maintenance and rejuvenation. Expect 10 days downtime
