What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are an effective way to improve a number of different skin conditions, targeting concerns on the face and body. Depending on your specific skin condition,
a treatment can be tailored using our diverse range of chemical solutions.


Chemical peels work in a variety of ways to stimulate cell renewal, refine, rejuvenate
and hydrate the skin, as well as regenerate and resurface damaged skin, making the results well worth the cost.


We offer a number of treatments, ranging from superficial to medium depth. The active ingredients we use include Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) – such as Glycolic, Lactic and Mandelic acid – as well as Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) like Salicylic acid, along with Retinoids (Vitamin A), Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and Enzymes. Treatment is useful in combating a number of skin concerns including sun damage, wrinkles, scarring, acne,
and pigmentation and to maintain a fresher more youthful complexion. It may also be combined with Microdermabrasion, Skin Needling, Pigmentation Removal to provide accelerated, dramatic results. Our range of chemical peels assist in addressing a number of skin concerns. We currently offer a purple peel, ageless peel, 40% glycolic peel, enzymatic micro peel, each designed specifically to treat different conditions.
