Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels are a safe and effective method of:

  • targeting fine lines and wrinkles
  • improving texture and tone of the skin
  • treating areas of increased pigmentation due to sun damage or melasma caused by hormonal changes
  • improving the appearance of acne


Superficial peels exfoliate the top layer of skin known as the epidermis. Often a series of 4-6  superficial peels are required to get the optimal result. 

Medium depth peels target the dermis or the medium layer of the skin. These peels result in more downtime than superficial peels with some skin peeling and redness- However 1-2 peels are usually enough to obtain the desired result.

Patients may require a  prescribed skincare regimen prior to the procedure in order to achieve the best result possible. 

Frequently asked Questions

The application of chemical peels is generally pain free. Some people mention that it feels a little warm or “tingling” but there is no associated discomfort.

The procedure itself takes no more 10 minutes usually. However a thorough medical consultation is required prior to this to ensure this is the right treatment for you.

This depends on the depth of the peel. With medium depth peels, you will start peeling approximately 7 days after application and your skin will be visibly improved after this peeling finishes. With more superficial peels, a course of 3-6 peels are required to see the results. The best results are achieved by using the correct skincare for your skin as advised by Dr Fiona and Dr Carole in conjunction with these peels.
