WHY CHOOSE Skin Peels
If you are looking for a simple, fast and effective way to quickly transform, revive and rejuvenate your skin, then our professional skin peels are a great choice. Skin peels remove a layer of damaged skin, leaving you with a newer and healthier layer. A non-toxic chemical solution will then be applied, which causes the superficial skin layers to peel away. When the skin begins to heal, it will produce a new and healthier skin layer, leaving a more youthful complexion. The type of treatment and sessions required will depend on your skin type and concern, but an average of 4-6 peels are needed at 4 week intervals for best results.
There are a variety of professional peels to choose from and our clinic offers the three most innovate skin peels:
Acne Peel – This is suitable if you have acne-prone skin and suffer from red and sore acne breakouts. The treatment uses salicyclic acid, a beta hydroxy acid which works by reducing and controlling the inflammation and redness seen in acne, as well as preventing future breakouts. This skin peel will leave you with a clearer complexion.
Skin Brite Peel – This is suitable if you are looking to correct sun damage pigmentation and dark spots. The peel is developed with innovative ingredients; Mandelic and Phytic acids help by lifting, brightening and exfoliating visible dark spots, while lactic acid and stem cells prevent further pigmentation from developing. The peel will leave your skin radiant and smooth.

The Importance of Skin Peeling
Our skin is our first line of defence against dust, germs, environmental pollutants and UV rays. It is only imperative that we take better care of our skin. The skin sheds routinely and old skin cells pile up. It is a natural process that is necessary to make the new cells come up to the surface. Without proper exfoliation, dead skin cells accumulate and the skin becomes rough, dull, and prone to breakouts.
While facial scrubs can help reduce dead skin cells, it is not the most efficient way to exfoliate. Chemical skin peels does not only remove the accumulation of oil, dirt, and dead skin cells, they also target blemishes, pigmentation, fine lines, and open pores.
