What conditions can be treated with Chemical skin peels?
Acne occurs when dirt, sebum and dead skin cells are trapped in skin follicles and accumulate, blocking the pores in the skin. The trapped oil and dirt can attract bacteria most commonly Propionibacterium acnes which may lead to inflammation, thus the formation of blackheads, pimples and cystic lesions.
Our acne peels are very effective for all types of acne-infected or acne-prone skin. The chemical skin peel contains salicylic acid along with many other active ingredients which have anti-inflammatory properties that regulate sebum deposition, hence improving skin quality and occurrence of acne lesions. A course of 3 – 6 treatments can leave the skin feeling more smooth, soft and rejuvenated.
Pigmentation is a skin colour disorder caused by a distortion in the production of melanin, leaving coloured patches on the skin. Pigmentation can be caused by hormonal influences, acne scars, excess melanin production, skin exposure to sunlight or even pregnancy. The three common types of skin pigmentation are melasma, melanin overproduction and PIH (Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation).
The pigmentation peel is rich in antioxidants and multifunctioning agents that penetrate deep into the skin and improve cellular function thereby increasing the impact of vitamin C and E. The antioxidants also protect the skin against free-radical damage which can be caused by prolonged exposure to UVA and UVB radiation from sunlight. By implementing nanotechnology the undesirable appearance of pigmentation can be massively reduced and managed at a molecular level.
As we age the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are more evident. The body’s collagen and elastin production also decrease, causing the skin to lose its elasticity and firmness, thus becoming weaker and looser. Although this skin condition is a natural part of the aging process, it is also further exacerbated by the intake of intoxicants, poor diets, dehydration, stress and anxiety due to the release of free radicals which can attack the skin at a molecular level.
Our chemical peels contain a multi-active ingredient including retinol and retinoic acid. The components work together to reduce existing fine lines and wrinkles and prevent the formation of new wrinkles thereby restoring the firmness of the skin and giving rise to a fresh, smooth and rejuvenated appearance. This procedure is based on Nanotechnology and effectively transfers the retinol into the skin’s deeper layers, with zero irritation and minimal pain, thus nourishing the skin from within.
Uneven Skin Tone
Uneven skin tone is a term that describes the irregular colouration of the skin where certain portions of the skin appear to be stained with patches of colour that are inconsistent with the dominant skin tone. This skin condition is similar to pigmentation and is caused by sun exposure, melasma, hormone influence or pollutants that penetrate the skin.
To treat this skin condition, we use pharmaceutical grade chemical peels for all categories of skin sensitivity.

The major benefit of this chemical peel is that it leaves a long-lasting effect on the dermis and epidermis. This skin solution contains a combination of exfoliants, 6% concentration of retinol and multiple active agents that penetrate deep into the cellular skin layer, with minimal irritation and pain. They stimulate fibroblast activity thereby increasing collagen and elastin production, thus improving skin texture, firmness and tone.
The Perfect Peel
The Ultimate Skin Care Remedy.
The Perfect Peel is a revolutionary peel that will transform your skin into looking younger, healthier and clearer in just 7-10 days. The Perfect Peel can be used on all skin types and requires no pre-peel skin preparation.
The Perfect Peel found itself on a key anti-aging ingredient never before used in a peel: Glutathione. Glutathione is the ultimate antioxidant, penetrating deep into the cellular level of the skin to fight oxidant damage and is the anti-aging answer to premature wrinkling. Our bodies naturally produce glutathione but as we age, our levels deplete due to sun exposure, air pollutants, environmental stress and the aging process itself. Glutathione is also proven to reverse the metabolism of melanin, thus lightening dark pigmentations.
The Perfect Peel blends glutathione, kojic acid, TCA, retinoic acid, salicylic acid, phenol, and a blend of minerals and vitamins, including vitamin C. Kojic acid is a powerful lightening agent and proven to increase collagen and elastin production, resulting in skin that is brighter and tighter. TCA, phenol and retinoic acid reduce wrinkles and correct pigment problems, while salicylic acid exfoliates the skin and reduces inflammation. Alone the ingredients are powerful, however, in combination they produce results that are astonishing.
To follow The Perfect Peel, you are given an individual home treatment pack. This pack contains retinol wipes and a vitamin C moisturiser to assist the peeling process and enhance your results
