Face peels are an effective treatment option for a diverse range of skin concerns to help reveal fresh, glowing skin. Some of our skin peeling treatments address concerns such as acne skin peeling, de-congestion, pigmentation reduction, and dead skin exfoliation.
Face peels are an affordable treatment, capable of delivering amazing results for your skin. Bay Medical Aesthetics offers skin peels in Melbourne that are tailored to your unique skin type and concerns.
Skin peels involve applying a chemical substance or enzyme to the skin in order 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 can be shed from the skin’s surface, revealing new skin cells below.
The shedding of dead cells on the skin’s outermost surface is a natural process, but the skin can require some assistance to help this process – particularly as we get older and the cycle of shedding and regenerating new skin cells slows down. Skin peels are versatile in that they can specifically target different skin depths, meaning they can be either superficial or penetrate to deeper layers. With each shedding, skin will look and feel softer, smoother and suppler.
Our experienced clinicians will conduct your thorough skin consultation, assessing the skin for pigment and textural irregularities in order to select the ideal peel solution. Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed to enhance peel penetration. Sensitive areas will be protected, such as the lip corners and around the eye areas. The peel solution will be applied evenly and in layers over your face, targeting any problem areas. It will be left on the skin for several minutes.
As the peel penetrates the skin, a warm tingling sensation will be felt. This may 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.
After skin peeling treatment for pigmentation or any other skin concerns, it is normal for the skin to feel tender. It is important to be careful not to aggravate the skin during this time by scrubbing, peeling, or picking at it. It’s also important to protect healing skin from the sun by applying an SPF30+ sunscreen daily.

Treatable concern according to Peel Type:
Once the skin is cleansed and the peel solution is applied on the skin, a slight warm tingling sensation will be felt. This may be more intense with stronger formulated peels. Once the product has properly absorbed into the skin, the peel will be neutralised with an alkaline special solution, followed by a complete removal. Our clinicians will ensure your comfort for the duration of your treatment.
For the first following hours you'll experience mild redness and tingling. For the first few days, you may notice some dryness, irritation, and mild swelling. After this, the skin may temporarily appear flaky or peel. Once the skin has settled, your complexion will be completely refreshed and rejuvenated.
Skin peels can assist with a wide range of skin concerns such as scarring, acne,& congestion, age spots, blemishes, hyperpigmentation, photo damage, and dullness. Nearly everyone can benefit from a professional skin peel, however, your skin type and concerns will determine which type of peel you will receive. Our clinicians will conduct an assessment of your skin prior to your treatment.
After your skin peel, our clinicians will provide you with aftercare instructions. Heavy makeup, cosmetics, or intense skin products (ie; retinol, scrubs) should be avoided in order to keep your pores clean and unclogged to allow best results. It is extremely important to apply SPF regularly and keeping skin well moisturized after receiving this treatment.
Skin peel involves applying a Mesoestetic chemical solution to your skin to accelerate the exfoliation process. All peels work by removing the surface layer of the skin (epidermis) and speeding up skin cell turnover. The strength of the peel used determines the number of layers of skin peeled.
Patients with a history of herpes simplex virus (cold sores) or inflammatory skin disease should consult our Doctor before chemical peeling. Patients with a history of keloids may also not be suited. Patients with HIV/AIDS or immunosuppression should avoid chemical peels as this may impair wound healing. Lastly, individuals who have recently completed a course of isotretinoin or Roaccutane should avoid chemical peels for at least 6 months.
