Skin Peels

The professionals secret to fresher looking skin

What is a Skin Peel?

It may sound rather alarming but facial peels are fantastic way to tackle various ageing effects on the skin.  They are extremely effective in brightening and freshening dull and tired complexions which have a build up of clogged pours and dead, flaky skin cells. An effective facial peel will allow the healthy, fresh new skin cells to show and the resulting smoother looking skin simply glows. 

The Benefits of a Skin Peel

In addition to reducing the signs of ageing, superficial-depth peels can also be used to treat blemishes, scars and uneven pigmentation. It is an ideal treatment for tackling the appearance of fine lines and brown age spots due to sun damage. These are recommended approximately every 4 – 6 weeks.

Medium-depth peels can help to reduce small wrinkle lines, certain types of acne scars, and the appearance of a variety of pigmentation problems. These are recommended monthly until you achieve your desired results.


Deep peels are effective at reducing the appearance of deeper lines, wrinkles and scars. One treatment is usually adequate to produce dramatic, lasting improvements in your skin and it’s unlikely that you would need any follow-up treatments.
