Bring Clearer, Smoother Skin to the Surface
A Chemical Peel is one of the safest and most effective treatments available to smooth and improve the texture of facial skin. A chemical peel can be used on its own, or in combination with other skin-care treatments.
Skin conditions such as acne, discoloration and surface irregularities all can benefit from our chemical peel treatments.

Using a chemical solution, Chemical Peels remove the fine outer layer of grey skin cells on the face. The chemicals in the solution break the lipid bonds between living and dead cells. Chemical Peels are available in various strengths varying in the amount of peeling desired.

What to Expect on Your First Visit
Our chemical peels are an ideal treatment for those suffering from acne, discolouration, wrinkles, pigmentation and surface irregularities and for the general rejuvenation of your skin. Many of our clients enjoy a chemical peel seasonally to slough off rough, dull surface cells for a glowing, refreshed look.
Post treatment, your skin may be red and flaky and peeling will occur for 3-7 days. After your chemical peel, the skin is sensitive to the sun, so make sure you wear broad-spectrum sunscreen.
Frequently Asked Questions
Still not sure? Read our FAQ’s below.
How many peels will I need?
Receiving a series of chemical exfoliation treatments will yield the best results. Our clinical estheticians will guide you through a skin care program that consists of treatments and skin care products that are suitable for your specific needs.
The superficial peels are usually done several times over the course of several months. The deeper peels usually only need to be performed once to achieve the desired effect.
How long do the results last?
With good sun protection, results can last months or years, depending on the depth of the peel. Generally, the deeper peels have a more long lasting effect.
