Chemical Peels work to penetrate the top layer of the skin, accelerating your body’s natural exfoliating process, they stimulate high levels of collagen and increase the moisture levels within your skin. Chemical Peels leave your skin looking tighter, smoother, plumper and healthier, they dramatically improve the skins appearance, not just on the face but the, hands, neck and décolletage too.

How does it work?
The peel contains natural acids (naturally occurring Alpha-Hydroxy- Acid or AHA), which works to penetrate the top layer of the skin, therefore accelerating your body’s natural exfoliating process. This exfoliation process stimulates collagen and increases the moisture level within your skin to give a firmer, tighter and brighter complexion. A peel is designed to exfoliate and rejuvenate you skin by encouraging fresh new skin cells to the surface. It is not limited to improving your face; this rejuvenation treatment can be used to refresh your hands, neck and décolletage as well, ideal for creating a complete age-defying effect.
How many treatments will I need?
The gentle but effective nature of a peel means that you can refresh your skin every 7-14 days and maintain your clearer skin every 4-6 weeks thereafter. A course of 6 treatments is recommended.
Do chemical peels hurt?
You may feel a slight tingle on the skin throughout the treatment, this is completely normal, and many clients describe it as a relaxing treatment.
