Clinical Peels

Clinical peels are designed to treat a variety of different skin conditions and concerns. They can be performed on their own or in conjunction with other intensive treatments.

Clinical Peels can be effective at treating pigmentation, scarring, used to help with hydration and anti-ageing, and acne to name a few.

The benefit of a clinical peel is that it is completely customised to suit your individual concern. They aren’t just a one size fits all, your clinician will determine what clinical peel will be best suited on the day of your appointment. A test patch may be required and this normally will occur at your consultation to assess how your skin responds to said peel.

What is a Clinical Peel?

Clinical peels are designed to treat all phases of ageing, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, stretch marks and other imperfections. They are a fantastic individual treatment or can be paired with other intensive treatments depending on the clients concerns.
