Chemical Peels

The Problem

Dead skill cells can make the skin appear dull and lacking in radiance, while fine lines can make us appear older. Accumulated sun damage can leave even the most pampered skin looking worn or blemished.

Chemical peels can be used to treat a number of problems, including sun damage, acne scarring, hyper pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and tired looking skin.

We offer peels from Epionce, Obagi and Circadia.

We are the UK’s leading non-invasive cosmetic group and have some of the most experienced nurses and skin therapists working with us. During your free consultation, one of our highly experienced practitioners will talk you through the different types of skin peels available and explain how they could work for your particular skin condition.

The Problem

Dead skill cells can make the skin appear dull and lacking in radiance, while fine lines can make us appear older. Accumulated sun damage can leave even the most pampered skin looking worn or blemished.

The Treatment

Facial Chemical Peel Treatment is an intense exfoliating process which uses chemical products to remove dead cells on the surface of the skin.

The Results

Skin appears softer, healthier, regenerated and more uniform in colour. The appearance of acne scars is reduced and wrinkles are noticeably smoother.

Downtime

This depends on the peel used. With TCA peel patients can expect the skin to tighten, darken and then peel. The whole process can take 5-7 days. With our gentler peels patients can experience some initial reddening which will settle over just a few hours for most people. So you could go back to work with none the wiser.

FAQs

What does the treatment involve?

Your skin is thoroughly cleansed to begin with then the chemical solution is carefully applied. The solution will be left on the skin for a few minutes and then removed.

What are the types of chemical peels available?

We offer two main types of peels – superficial peels and medium peels.

Superficial peels are light, mild peels. They remove the outer layer of cells and are used to treat fine lines, sun damage, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation and moderate acne scars.

Medium peels (also known as TCA skin peels because they contain trichloroacetic acid) penetrate further into the skin. They are used to treat wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage and uneven skin tone. This type of peel is used to treat problem areas on the hands, forearms and neck as well as the face.

Does the treatment hurt?

You may experience a mild stinging or burning sensation when the product is applied. But don’t worry – this won’t last for very long.

How long does the treatment take?

The whole treatment takes less than half an hour. You can then get straight back to normal activities.

How much does Chemical Peels cost?

The cost of a chemical peel treatment start from £58. However the price may very depending on:

  • The type of peel recommended.
  • The number of treatments required.

The best way to find out the cost of a chemical skin peel treatment is to book a consultation with one of our expert skin practitioners where they will come up with a personalised treatment plan to help you achieve the results you desire.

Consultations with our expert skin practitioners are £25 however this cost is redeemable against the price of any skin treatment that you wish to book following your consultation.

Chemical Peel Treatments are available at our clinics in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Northampton and Leeds.

Are there any side effects?

Your skin may look red or brown and, occasionally, swollen after treatment, depending on the peel used. However, this is perfectly normal and only lasts for a couple of days.

How many treatments will I need?

Four to six superficial peels are needed to treat mild acne scars and to reduce the signs of ageing. Deeper scars and lines and wrinkles will need one or two medium peels.

Do I need to prepare my skin before I have a Chemical Peel?

Occasionally we’ll ask you to follow a very simple home care programme before you come in for your peel. This will consist of a number of products that you’ll need to apply for one or two weeks before your first treatment.

Comments from patients

Once again I leave another 5* review to the wonderful team at The Gatehouse Clinic, Northampton, (I could live there). A very warm and friendly greeting always awaits me from Nuala the lovely receptionist and of course coffee and biscuits.
My appointments with the lovely Vicky has worked wonders and she has vastly improved the texture of my facial skin with the various skin peels that i have received and the brilliant advice on beauty products and treatments. I’m thrilled to bits by the comments I get about how radiant and glowing my complexion looks!
Thank you so much and I can’t wait to return soon.

“Uneven skin tone on my face always bothered me so when I heard chemical peels would help, it was an easy and quick way to treat them. Once the peeling had stopped, the brown marks on my face were virtually unnoticeable. It was the easiest way to treat them.” *

“My skin has never looked better. It’s all the same colour and I feel confident enough to go out with just some lip gloss and mascara. I love chemical peels, my face is so fresh.” *
