What is a chemical peel?
When it comes to getting the absolute best results from your skincare, we recommend having a series of in-clinic treatments with one of our Medik8 professional therapists. If you ever feel like you’ve hit a skincare rut, you may want to use a peel to supercharge the results. As always, we are dedicated to giving you real results, and so our peels can help to improve scarring, photodamage and hyperpigmentation; or even give you a radiant glow before a big event or occasion.
When you undergo a chemical peel, specially-selected enzymes and/or chemical exfoliants breakdown the upper layers of the skin to reveal the fresher, rejuvenated skin beneath.
Working on built up dead skin cells, softening fine lines, lightening pigmentation, and treating acne. These our one of our favourite advanced facials at Classic because we get life changing results!
During the peel procedure, the skin’s natural protective barrier is partially and temporarily compromised. This allows fresh new cells to come to the surface and form a newer, stronger barrier. It also means that skin must be specifically cared for during the downtime period.
Peels can cause some mild discomfort and temporary redness; dependent on the strength of the peel chosen. Above all else – relax. The peeling process provides you some valuable me-time, so enjoy the peace and allow yourself to switch into relaxation mode. After all of our peel protocols, we include our Medical-grade LED Healite Machine to promote wound healing and Medik8’s Ultimate Recovery Mask for its hydrating & soothing properties.
