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 EpionceObagi 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 Procedure
  • Aftercare

Chemical Peel Treatment

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

After Chemical Peel Treatment

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

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Dr Fallhadar did an exceptional job, he made me feel comfortable from start to finish. Fiona his assistant was also incredibly helpful and supportive throughout. They are so natural and I would highly recommend him to anyone, particularly if you want a natural and problem free result

    I work with Mr Riaz Agha, a Harley Street Plastic Consultant Surgeon at one of his private clinics. I am impressed with not only his standard and quality of work but also the care and kindness that he shows to all of his patients and team. I have worked with a huge variety of different consultants over the years but Mr Argha really stands out and I would highly recommend him to friends and family, and of course if ever I consider to have any procedures in the future.

    I had a breast reduction performed by Mr Navid Jallali. I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I have less backache and less neck ache. The size and shape are absolutely fabulous.The clinic was amazing. The nursing staff in the hospital were superb. I would not hesitate to recommend this clinic and Mr Jalalli to anyone wanting a breast reduction.

    A really positive experience. Alex is a fantastic patient co-ordinator, so friendly and reassuring. After a few changes of plan due to Covid lockdown, I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to have Dr Fattah performing my procedure. Extremely thorough and precise from the first consultation, I really trusted him. My main aim was to restore my figure after children/breastfeeding, with a really natural look that would work with my lifestyle, gym etc. Dr Fattah really “got” this and I trusted his judgement on size of implant and placement completely. I’m absolutely delighted with the result and the aftercare support has been great – surgery follow up and then annual check ups for reassurance. Thank you team, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ?

    From the start to finish of my T-Lift procedure, I felt in good hands. The entire team at The Private Clinic were very caring and professional. Mr Falladah is an excellent surgeon, he explained everything clearly -before and during the procedure – and has a calm and reassuring manner. Because I was well-informed regarding what to expect after surgery, I was able to manage with minimal pain medication, but I’m glad I took a couple of days off work to recover. I’m really pleased with the results – a five star recommendation!

    I had preservation rhinoplasty with Dr Rochira in December 2019. I couldn’t be happier with my results. The results are very natural-looking and I feel so much more confident with my side profile. Dr Rochira is an amazing surgeon and I instantly felt comfortable. He knew exactly what I wanted and was very realistic with the results in my consultation. Thank you!

    Dr. Rochira performed a preservation rhinoplasty on me in December 2019. I trusted his suggestions for my nose and now, 9 months later, I couldn’t be happier with the results I’m seeing. I did not experience any bruising at all, only swelling around my eyes for the first couple of weeks — my nose itself took a few months to settle and I feel like it has really grown into the rest of my features. I entirely recommend this surgeon if you are looking for a natural result and an extremely pleasant experience.
