Chemical Peels & Resurfacers

Advanced Skincare Technology

We offer a Range of intensive skin peels and resurfacer treatments using DermaQuest advanced skincare technology.  Suitable for the face, décolleté and hands, they are tailored specifically to your skin type, needs and skin concerns and are totally safe and non-invasive.  They will help by:

  • Effectively minimising fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, pigmentation and enlarged pores
  • Deeply exfoliating and rejuvenating to improve skin texture and restore radiance

What should I know?

DermaQuest chemical peels and resurfacer treatments harness the deeply exfoliating properties of a variety of naturally occurring acids including those derived from fruit, nuts and milk to name but a few.

These acids including Lactic, Mandelic, Glycolic and Salicylic help to un-clog pores, reduce inflammation and regulate excessive oil production thus removing dead and damaged skin cells and stimulating the renewal of healthy new cells beneath the surface of the skin. Following your treatment, once healed, open pores, blemishes, acne, pigmentation and fine lines are all visibly reduced and your skin is left glowing, tightened and radiant.

Please note the skin MUST be prepped correctly prior to starting your peels.  After your consultation, we will advise you on the best products to prepare for your course of peels and what to use to care for your skin along with full aftercare advice and product recommendations after treatment.

A patch test is required at least 72hrs before treatment can proceed.

Following a thorough consultation and appropriate pre-treatment skin preparation, skin peel and resurfacer treatments begin with a thorough cleanse of the skin before the therapist passes the skin peel or resurfacer solution over the treatment area.

Frequently Asked Questions?

What is the difference between resurfacers and chemical peels?
  • Resurfacers are mild peels,  superficial exfoliating treatments, meaning that they work on the very top layer of the skin and use enzymes and acids to refine and exfoliate.
  • Resurfacers generally have little-to-no downtime following treatment.
  • Chemical Peels will also exfoliate and address a wide variety of concerns, yet they have the ability to penetrate the mid to lower levers of the epidermis, delivering stronger, extended results.
  • Chemical peels are so active and deeply penetrating, a downtime of up to 10 days can be expected.
How long is the appointment?

Your appointment will be approx 30-45 minutes.

What should I expect?

After one chemical peel or resurfacer treatment, your overall skin tone and complexion will appear smoother, fresher and more radiant.

With some chemical peels you may feel as if your skin looks worse before it looks better after the initial peel – Don’t panic, this is normal. Any concerns please speak with Becky.

There will be a noticeable reduction in break outs, blemishes and signs of ageing. Depending on the severity of skin conditions to be addressed, multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results.

A series of 3 chemical peel treatments applied once every 4 weeks or a series of six resurfacer treatments taken at 2 week intervals will usually allow for optimal results. Provided the skin is maintained with good quality skin care products as recommended at your initial consultation, your skin improvement following treatment will be long-lasting.

 

Does it hurt?

DermaQuest chemical peels and resurfacer treatments are completely safe and non-invasive. The sensation of chemical peels and resurfacers will vary from person to person due to skin tolerance, skin condition, severity of a skin complaint and the strength of the peel.

The skin may heat up, feel tight and tingly. This is perfectly normal.

With a full chemical peel it may feel incredibly hot but the solution self neutralises so this normally only lasts for up to 3 minutes – This is a good sign that the active ingredients are penetrating and getting to work on rejuvenating the lower layers of the skin.

Is there any downtime?

After your treatment, resurfacers generally have little-to-no downtime, you may find some dry patches or flaky skin.

Up to 10 days of downtime should be expected after undergoing a full chemical peel treatment.

Immediately after the chemical peel or resurfacer treatment your skin may feel warm, red and tight.

After resurfacers these side effects usually subside in a day or two.

Chemical peels induce a significant amount of peeling of the skin at the treatment site on days 2-7, which usually resolves itself by days 8-10.

How many treatments will I need?

For body treatments, approx 4-6 sessions.

For chin treatments, approx 1-3 sessions.
