What is a chemical peel?
Skin peels use an acid or chemical solution that helps to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells from the face. Chemical peels remove the top layers of your skin to help stimulate collagen and the production of new and healthy skin cells.
We only use professional-grade chemical peels from iS Clinical and Obagi. They contain ingredients such as salicylic acid, lactic acid and glycolic acid. By using medical-grade skin peels, it helps provide you with a safe treatment experience that delivers the results you want in as little as one application.

The different types of chemical peel at our clinic in Essex
When you attend our skin clinic in Essex for your consultation, we will talk you through which chemical peel will work best for your skin type and skin condition.
There is the option of a light, medium or deep skin peel.
Light chemical peels are gentle and only gently exfoliate your skin when removing dead skin cells. They only remove the top layer of skin (epidermis). Because of this, Light skin peels are safe for people with sensitive skin.
They work on mild skin conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne and blemishes and improve an uneven skin tone.
Medium chemical peels are slightly stronger than a light skin peel. They remove the outermost layer of your skin and the upper parts of your middle skin layer (dermis).
As medium chemical peels penetrate some of the deep layers of your skin, they can help with acne scarring, deep wrinkles and evening out your skin texture. You will likely need several medium peels to achieve the results you want.
The strongest of all the chemical peel treatments. They penetrate deeper layers of your middle layer of skin. We may recommend a deep skin peel to anyone who has deep wrinkles, sun damage on their skin and scarring.
Are chemical peels safe?
Skin peels are perfectly safe when applied by a medical or skincare expert. It is important to find the right chemical peel that is suitable for your skin type and that will help treat your skin concerns.
With so many skin peels available, you need to get advice from a skincare professional. This advice can help you from experiencing adverse side effects such as skin discolouration or burns.
During your consultation, we will talk you through the different chemical peels, examine your medical history and look at your skin condition. This will help us develop a tailored treatment solution for you.
If you have sensitive skin or darker skin types, you will need to have a patch test to ensure you are suitable for treatment. chemical peels may not be suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
What can I expect after a chemical peel treatment?
You can expect to see peeling skin 48-72 hours after our skin peels. During this time, you may experience an itchy or tingly feeling in your treated skin area. This is completely normal.
