Chemical skin peels use enzymes and acids to remove the dead top layer of skin, to reveal a more youthful, clearer and fresher appearing skin. Basically, a chemical peel exfoliates the top layers of your skin. Instead of using a harsh scrub or dermabrasion, different types of chemical ingredients are used to remove the layers of dead skin. Apart from curing your skin blemish issues, chemical peels will also allow the skin care products that you use to be absorbed more effectively.
It is a very popular treatment that is used all over the world and helps to treat wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. Why not come and try chemical peel and see how life transforming the results can be for you?
We have a whole host of chemical peel treatments available which can offer solutions to a range of skin conditions. It is always our aim to offer the mildest treatment that will be effective, but sometimes deeper peels will be the best option. Our skin expert, Dr Rahma Targett, will access your skin type and condition and recommend a skin peel tailored for you to yield maximal results.
Dr Targett our resident skin specialist will determine which chemical peels will work best for your skin type and skin condition. For ageing issues and hyper-pigmentation, usually, a Glycolic Acid Peel will be suggested. For sensitive skin, lactic acid based peels are often used. If you are seeking a solution to your acne, then a salicylic acid formula or a combination treatment may be used.
Unfortunately, having one treatment alone will not be effective. However, don’t be discouraged, you will often see visible results after only one treatment. If you want to have lasting results then regular peels are definitely recommended. After each peel, you will find that the chemical ingredients are better able to act because the upper dead layer of skin has been removed.

At Advanced Cosmetic Medicine, your skin care expert will prepare your skin, so there is a smooth base ready for the peel. After the peel has been applied, you may notice a tightening and tingling sensation. Different skin types, will, of course, react differently. Depending on which skin peel formula you have chosen, the chemical may be left on for a few hours to neutralize or may only be left on for a few minutes.
Usually, you will peel for about five days and have a red complexion throughout this period. The more intense the peel, the more skin flaking will be noticeable. For milder skin peels, you may not notice any flaking of your skin. But rest assured it will be occurring at a cellular level.
This is the stage when you will need to take the most care of your skin. Your face will become more sensitive because the peel has exposed new skin cells. Please be diligent by applying sunscreen every day to the treated area. Dr Targett may recommend other post care treatments at your appointment.
Depending on the severity of the skin peel treatment, some downtime may be a possibility. It is never a good idea to have a skin peel just before an important event.
