Facial Peels Frequently Asked Questions

Treatment summary

PROCEDURE TIME

The duration of a treatment will vary depending on the type of skin peel but it’s usually somewhere between 15 and 30 minutes.

RESULTS

Chemical peels will treat wrinkles caused by ageing or sun damage, lessen the fine lines around the mouth and eye areas, treat acne marks, reduce freckles or age spots, lighten the skin and even soften the look and feel of the face.

FULL RECOVERY

Treatment requires little in the way of recovery. For best results, apply sun cream to prevent hyperpigmentation and to keep the skin hydrated.

DURATION OF RESULTS

Superficial peels are recommended once every two weeks and are most effective when a course of peels is completed (usually 4-6 peels). Other facial peels, once every four weeks to maintain a glowing complexion.

ANAESTHETIC

You won’t normally need an anaesthetic.

RISKS & COMPLICATIONS

Contraindications include serious illness, pregnancy or breast-feeding, hormonal therapy with oestrogen and/or progesterone, recent facial surgery and allergic reactions to any of the substances used. Your therapist will discuss any further issues with you in detail at your consultation.
