Choosing A Chemical Peel

Skin consultation

When choosing a chemical peel, there are several important factors to consider to ensure you pick the right peel for your skin type and treatment goals.

With the exception of Express Glycolic Facials (which can be booked online due to their suitability for all skin types), all of our chemical peels must be booked with our team directly. This is so we can confirm treatment suitability – ensuring you make a skin-vest-ment that counts! 

In the handy chemical peel guide below, we take you through the peeling depth, expected downtime and active ingredients of the medical-grade treatments that we offer.
