Chemical Peels

( From £200 )
  • THE TREATMENT

    Chemical peels are used to treat a number of skin concerns. At Revere Clinics we exclusively use our chemical peels for the treatment of acne and oily, inflamed skin.

    At Revere, we recommend the Obagi Blue Peel Radiance system. These peels harness the power of salicylic acid to reduce active acne, and they dramatically improve the complexion through deep exfoliation.

  • HOW IT WORKS

    Chemical peels are chemical solutions containing powerful active ingredients such as salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide which are applied to the skin like a mask. The solution then peels off, removing the dead, tired and damaged skin on the surface to reveal the refreshed, younger-looking skin underneath.

    Peels vary greatly in their results and in the way they react with different skin types. If we recommend a chemical peel, you can be sure that it’s the best treatment for your concern. However, for many skin conditions, there are other best-in-class devices and treatments which are better suited. Ultimately, it is important to consult with an aesthetic doctor to determine which peel, device or treatment is right for you.

  • TREATMENT AREAS

    Chemical peels are most often applied to the face, but can be safely used to rejuvenate other areas of the body, such as the hands, neck and décolleté.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Putting acid on my face sounds scary. Are chemical peels safe?

    When administered by an expert cosmetic physician, chemical peels are a safe and effective method of resurfacing the skin for a healthy, natural glow. These peels take advantage of the body’s natural healing process, using specially selected acidic ingredients to apply controlled damage to the skin and encourage organic repair. Often, these peels are applied in multiple courses with lower concentrations of acidic ingredients, so this damaging and healing cycle is gradual.

  • What happens during treatment?

    Chemical peels can differ significantly, but in your complimentary consultation, one of our cosmetic physicians will determine what type of peel you need, how many courses will be most effective and what kind of prescription skincare to pair with your peel. When it’s time for the treatment, your skin will be cleansed and prepared. The peel is then applied, left on for an allotted amount of time and removed.

    No anaesthesia is required but you will experience a warm tingling sensation for 2 minutes as the peel is neutralised. Whilst the skin is slightly red for 24 hours, it is in the second day that the skin begins to exfoliate mildly, up to 72 hours after treatment.

  • Is there downtime involved?

    Chemical peels can cause some redness and dryness in the treated area for 24 hours following the procedure. Patients must avoid direct sun exposure for 3 days after the treatment, since the skin is particularly sensitive in the period following a chemical peel.

  • When will I see my results?

    Results differ from patient to patient. Many peels are designed to resurface the skin incrementally, using multiple treatments to achieve the desired effects. Typically, a course of 2 to 4 peels is recommended, in conjunction with prescription skincare products.

    Make an appointment with one of the skilled aesthetic physicians at Revere to learn more about the chemical peels we offer, and to see if this treatment is right for you.

  • Why doesn't Revere recommend peels for scarring and deep lines?

    We would not recommend deep peels for any other skin conditions, whilst they may tighten and resurface the skin very effectively, the downside is that the new collagen that is created is of a scar type arrangement. This also changes the light reflective properties of the skin, compromising the natural glow healthy skin should display, with a glassy reflective one.

    This is one of the reasons that Revere advocates cutting edge laser and radio frequency treatments for the improvement of tone, texture, pigmentation, heavy wrinkles and sun damage.
