Chemical Peels

Professional grade chemical skin peels are now one of the top clinical skincare treatments worldwide.  Recognised as the most effective, cost efficient approach to tackle a myriad of skin concerns, it is a fraction of the cost of laser treatments and has minimal 'down time'.  

Able to significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation and blemishes they are an excellent alternative to injectables and surgery.  Chemical peels are available in varying strengths, allowing us to target many differing concerns.  Chemical peels are suitable for almost everyone from very sensitive skin right through to mono-peels which use high-strength single acids that can even be layered to target stubborn concerns. 

Results can be seen in just one treatment, although a course of treatment is recommended to optimise the effects and long term benefits.

What is a chemical peel ?
Chemical peels are professional-grade exfoliating acids applied to the skin with a small brush to help resurface and retexture.
Is it ok to just have one peel to improve my skin?
It is possible to just have a single peel, but we recommend a course of 6 to really see the long-term skin benefits. It's a little like going to the gym; you can go occasionally but the real results will come when you commit to an ongoing programme. We make starting your peel journey really easy with our Medik8 12 Weeks to WOW programme - basically 'personal training for your skin'. Our network of trained therapists will work with you over a 12 week* period to visibly transform your skin through a bespoke programme of in-clinic treatments and at-home care to achieve skin that really wows.
What results can I expect to see ?
24 hours post-peel your skin will likely feel a little tight and appear slightly flushed. With our stronger peels, within 3 days your skin will start to flake but within the week you will start to see clearer, more uniform skin tone. Over a course of 6 peels, results will be even more visibly profound. We recommend taking pictures of your progress. 
24 hours post-peel your skin will likely feel a little tight and appear slightly flushed. Within 3 days your skin will start to flake but within the week you will start to see clearer, more uniform skin tone. Over a course of 6 peels, results will be even more visibly profound. We recommend taking pictures of your progress either on your own phone or many of our clinics have facial imaging equipment that can extensively track your skin's improvement across such parameters as wrinkle depth, clarity, water content etc; dependant on the skin concern you are treating. Fascinating stuff. Search Instagram for #Medik8WOW for the very latest 12 Weeks to WOW results from around the globe.
Are chemical peels suitable for all skins ?
Chemical peels are suitable for almost everyone and at Medik8 we have a varied range from our Sensitive PHA Peel which is suitable for very sensitive skins right through to our mono peels which use high-strength single acids that can even be layered to target stubborn concerns. Certain skin conditions / people may be 'contra-indicated' and therefore shouldn't go down the peel route until skin is normalised. However, there are lots of other treatment options we offer.
What's the downtime ?
By definition, the application of acids to the skin may cause redness, skin flaking and mild peeling; but every skin is different. We recommend not to wear makeup for the first 12 hours post-peel to ensure the skin remains bacteria-free. You will be recommended a comprehensive aftercare routine to continue with at home to ensure your skin recovers and rejuvenates correctly. As a general rule, expect flaking from around the 3rd day post-peel for a maximum of 5 further days. You should avoid direct sun exposure during these recovery days and always wear a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. We recommend clients go home with our Physical Sunscreen which is a mineral, non-nano, broad spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 which provides great protection and as a mineral sunscreen is very gentle on compromised skin.
How long will the results last ?
After a single photofacial you will see firmer, tighter skin with a reduced pore size and skin will feel softer and smoother due to the instant hydration and enhanced absorption of the ingredients in the Hydrogel Mask.

Your complexion will look more vibrant and fresher due to the increased blood flow, tissue oxygenation and increased cellular ATP.
As with any treatment, you can see visible, very pleasing results in one treatment... you will be surprised just how different your skin looks and feels, but a course of 6 treatments will get you dramatic skin benefits lasting up to a year with regular maintenance treatments and a simple homecare routine.
