Chemical peels

Chemical peels are more popular than ever as they are a cost effective treatment to keep your skin looking healthy and refreshed.

It is a type of chemical exfoliation of the skin that leaves the skin looking bright and feeling rejuvenated.

 

The peels done in our practice are mild peels and are safe on all skin types.

Chemical peels treat:

  • Mild pigmentation

  • Uneven Skin tone 

  • Acne

  • Wrinkles

  • Rosacea

  • Improve skin texture

  • Dry, dehydrated skin

  • Oily skin 

Procedure:

  • The skin is cleaned to remove make up, excess oils and dirt

  • Vaseline is applied to the corners of the nose, eyes and mouth to prevent acid from leaking into these areas

  • The mild acid solution is brushed onto the skin and left in place for 2 - 3 mins

  • You will feel some tingling - this is normal and expected

  • The skin may become red but this resolves by the end of the day

  • The acid is wiped off and neutralised 

  • The skin is cleansed thouroughly and a serum and sunblock are applied

Duration:

​15 minutes

Cost:

​R850 / peel

Sessions:

​4 or more sessions needed

a month apart

Post peel care:

  • No make up after the peel for 1 - 2 days

  • Wear sunblock everyday as your skin will be prone to sunburn

  • Use a repair cream

  • Mild peels do not usually cause significant peeling or flaking of the skin and this is why they are preferred

NB:

Stop retinol products 3 days before peel
