Peels

Peels are designed to improve the texture and appearance of skin using well designed, high-strength acids to gently exfoliate the skin to reveal a brighter, younger-looking complexion. Some peels have a range of time release chemicals of different strengths and compositions to target different skin concerns such as blemishes or pigmentation. These pioneering and innovative range of peels are one of the most modern medical treatment available.

To ensure that you receive the maximum benefit of a peel, an accurate pre-peel consultation is imperative to ensure the treatment is carried out safely and that post treatment recovery time is as minimal as possible.

We want you to have healthy, smooth, radiant, younger looking skin and to achieve this we would like all our clients to follow the procedures below. Many of these procedures are MANDATORY and we make no exceptions. We will NOT carry out your peel treatment unless you have followed our procedures.

  • PRE-PEEL CONSULTATION
    THIS IS MANDATORY AND MUST BE DONE 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO YOUR BOOKED TREATMENT.
    A full in-depth consultation will help us identify contraindications, understand your skin, discuss your skincare goals and answer any queries you may have.
  • PATCH TEST.
    THIS IS MANDATORY AND MUST BE DONE 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO YOUR BOOKED TREATMENT.
    Depending on which peel we are going to undertake after your consultation, we will carry out a peel patch test. If irritation occurs within 24 hours of the patch test, we will not carry out the treatment.
  • PRE-PEEL SKIN PREPARATION.
    THIS IS MANDATORY AND MUST BE DONE 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO YOUR BOOKED TREATMENT.
    Clinical results have shown that the use of topical Vitamin A and C prior to and post treatment not only maximises the results but speeds up the healing time and reduces possible post peel complications. You will be advised on what products to use and shown how to use them correctly. You MUST use these products as directed for a minimum of 2 weeks before the treatment.

We Will Not Carry Out The Peel Treatment Unless You Have Done So.

  • POST TREATMENT CARE
    You will be advised which products to use post treatment and how you can start to integrate the other recommended products into your daily skincare routine.
    Don’t book your treatment if you have just returned from a holiday in the sun where you have been sunbathing. You cans start using the recommended products immediately, but must wait for 2 weeks before booking your peel appointment.

    • Don’t expose your skin to the sun whilst you’re awaiting your treatment and wear an SPF 30+ pre and post-treatment. Use the recommended SPF product.
    •  Don’t use any type of exfoliant for a week following your peel.
    • Don’t use cleansers that contain AHA’s or BHA’s (such as Surface Radiance Cleanser), for at least 3 days post treatment.
    • Don’t use facial sponges or wash/face cloths post treatment.
    • Don’t wear any make-up for a minimum of 12 hours post treatment.
    • Don’t apply any self-tan for at least a week post treatment.
    • Avoid saunas, swimming and exercising for at least 24 hours post peel.
    • Treat the skin gently when cleansing and avoid over rubbing.
    • Allow the skin to peel naturally – do not pick at or peel off the flaky skin.
    •  Minimise sun exposure and wear an SPF every day applying it generously even when it’s cloudy.
    •  If you are unsure about any of the above or have other concerns, call the salon.
