Chemical peeling or chemo-exfoliation is a process whereby a chemical substance or enzyme is applied to an area of skin to loosen and digest the glue-like substance (intracellular glue) that holds dead and damaged skin cells together. By applying acids and enzymes dead and damaged skin cells are able to shed from the surface and help reveal new skin cells.
The shedding of dead cells on the skins outermost surface is a normal process that results in younger cells underneath the surface. Whereby the skin looks and feels soft, smooth and supple with each shedding. The skin requires assistance to help this process particularly as we get older as the cycle of shedding and regenerating new skin cells slows down considerably. This slower cellular turnover and excessive dead skin laying on the surface is one of the causes of dull, lacklustre, unhealthy or wrinkled skin.
Following a thorough skin consultation that assess for skin thickness, pigment and textural irregularities and photodamage, an ideal peel solution will be selected. Skin peels are versatile in that they can specifically target differing skin depths. Therefore, peels can be either superficial or penetrate to deeper layers as well.
Skin is thoroughly cleansed and degreased to enhance peel penetration. Sensitive areas will be protected like the lip corners and around the eye areas. Peel solution will be applied evenly and in layers over the full-face targeting problem areas and left on the skin for several minutes depending on the skin’s reaction. As the peel penetrates the skin, a warm tingling sensation will be felt. This can be more intense with stronger peels. Once the desired endpoint is reached, the peel will be neutralised with a special solution, followed by complete removal.

"Therapist was really skilled and gentle with waxing. Made me feel comfortable and communicated really well. Would definitely recommend this place to others"

"I feel very confident having laser by a medical practitioner compared to a therapist with laser training. I was contacted via text post laser for a follow up and check however experienced no negative side effects."
"Was very professional and advanced - and so well priced. I feel confident that it’s coming from Dr Aarthi- she explains everything and the other facialists are really good as well. Finally someone who knows what she is talking about and accessible! I’ve been trying to clear my skin for so long - I can’t tell you how many other laser clinic I have been too selling me products and nothing made an impact. But ive had carbon and peels just after a few treatments it’s looking clear and radiant. Will be coming here from now on and highly recommend it."
