Frequently Asked Questions
How do skin peels work?
Skin peels work by creating a light wounding on the surface of the skin, exfoliating away the dead, damaged, and dying cells on the surface. This reveals a fresher, younger layer beneath and also stimulates the fresh production of skin cells and collagen. Skin peels also strip away excess oil, dry out spots, and work to minimise pores to optimise your skin’s health. A course of skin peels could even permanently rebalance your skin’s oil production, essentially pressing ‘reset’ on congested and acne-prone skin. An overall healthy glow and vibrancy is restored to the skin, creating a more youthful complexion.
What skin conditions do skin peels treat?
Skin peels regenerate the skin, stimulating the production of fresh and untouched skin cells as well as skin components for laxity and volume. This makes them the perfect for treating hyperpigmentation, acne, ageing skin, and enlarged pores. Even if you’re not experiencing a complex skin condition, skin peels are effective at just reintroducing vitality and glow to your skin.
Do these treatments hurt?
Depending on the depth of the skin peel you receive, sensations will vary. A light or superficial skin peel will feel a little tingly, but it shouldn’t become uncomfortable at any point. A medium depth peel, however, will sting a little more because its stronger ingredients allow it to penetrate to deeper levels of the skin. We will prep, prime, treat, and soothe your skin in your peel appointment to best manage these sensations and provide you with the most comfortable treatment journey possible.
