Chemical Peels(From £200)
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.
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.
What our patients say about us
Their knowledge, ground breaking machines, offerings and techniques are excellent. I have my laser hair removal and pico laser with Jess - she is amazing!! Always make me feel at ease, is so diligent with the treatments and I'm so happy with the results so far. I enjoy visiting Revere - everyone is so friendly and what they do is pioneering!
Going through the menopause, I noticed changes to my body and on turning 50 decided to do something about it. The usual things weren't having the desired effect, so after doing some research I ended up at Revere in Northwood. After an initial consultation we agreed that Cool Sculpting on my inner and outer thighs was the best treatment for my needs. The actual treatment was a little uncomfortable initially but not painful. Photos were taken before and 12 weeks after. I had noticed improvements during this time but was astounded when I actually saw the evidence of how drastically it had improved! My silhouette had improved dramatically and my skin tone was hugely improved. The reduction in fat on my thighs meant that my skin was much smoother from the whole area from my knees to my buttocks - my cellulite improved by about 75%! I am absolutely delighted with the results and it has given me the confidence boost I needed to believe I can still have a figure to be proud of in my 50s!
From the moment I entered the Northwood clinic I was made to feel at ease. Dr Sabika was professional yet had a great bedside manner. She really listened to my concerns and gave me several options and a step by step plan without being pushy. When I finally decided to proceed with fillers she explained everything thoroughly and told me what the realistic outcome would be. I was delighted with the results which were very natural and subtle yet made a big difference to my confidence. I would absolutely recommend Dr Sabika to anyone who is thinking of fillers.
"I have consulted with Dr Karim twice, and on each occasion, I have found her to be friendly and chatty whilst remaining totally professional. She put me at ease and made me feel confident in her skills. Being an NHS healthcare professional myself, I could only envy the amount of time she can make available to her patients to discuss in detail their wishes and concerns. She was very informative about the risks and benefits of the available treatments and honest about what they could achieve. She took a thorough history . She advised me about other treatments that she thought I might benefit from that I hadn't previously considered, but without pushing them. During the procedure she made sure I was comfortable kept me informed about what she was doing and was skilled, quick and precise. I am extremely pleased with the results of my treatment and wouldn't hesitate to see her again for any future needs. I would be happy recommend her to others."
"Revere stands out because of its relaxed atmosphere and professionalism. Sach is fantastic, which translates to his team too!"
"I highly recommend Revere for Dr Sach's amazing professional service. Very good experience! Definitely coming back, without any doubt."
- Wood Ng
I was recommended to this place by a friend who couldnt speak more highly of Dr Sach and his practice. I have to say this place is FANTASTIC. My consultation and procedure was all done within an hour. The skill of the doctor was VERY impressive, I felt I was in safe hands and was extremely relaxed, which I didn’t expect. The final reveal was honestly incredible, I was not expecting such amazing results. One thing that really stood out was Dr Sach’s passion for what he does - he was almost as excited as I was. Afterwards, over some tea and a little cake, we had a chat and we viewed the before and after photos (I was speechless). Also, it's amazing to think that later on in the day, only two hours after my treatment, I was sitting in a meeting and nobody knew. They just kept saying I looked great afterwards in the office (what can you say but thank you?). Thank you, Revere! I can't wait to come again in a year's time. GREAT EXPERIENCE ALL ROUND."
"Thank you to Revere for first-class treatments and a customer-friendly attitude... Highly recommend them to family and friends."
"Having always been slightly sceptical about enhancing treatments, it was with some worry I entered Revere. However, I must say I was completely blown away from the first minute I stepped through the door. From the bright, elegant and airy reception, to the friendliness and professionalism of the staff, I was relaxed and comfortable from the start. The other clients I saw seemed equally relaxed and there was an open dialogue between all of us as we waited. All of this is important, but even more crucial is the expertise of the medical staff providing the services - and here, Revere really excels. All I can say is that I will never look anywhere else other than Revere Clinics ."
"It's been a while now since my friend Sam introduced me to Dr Sach, and I have to confess that I am his biggest fan! His approach, personality and ability to make people feel comfortable and beautiful is just priceless. I will always recommend him to my friends."
"I can't recommend Revere highly enough! I requested some advice and got a brilliant consultation, advice and treatment that didn't involve any drastic measures. Sach listened to my concerns and created a plan that was exactly suited to me. Brilliant service and results! Thanks."
"I was so impressed by my honest consultation with Dr Mohan. Even though I went in to find out more about my fat loss in the abdomen area, he seemed to be more concerned about my health and WHY my stomach was protruding. He actually diagnosed me with what seemed like two abdominal hernias and asked me to contact my GP immediately for further investigation. He also told me to stop any abdominal treatments right away. I feel so reassured by Dr Mohan and so grateful, as no one has previously done such an in-depth consultation or noticed that I actually have an underlying medical condition!! Everyone else has been too keen to SELL their product! I am also due to have a radiofrequency facial tightening treatment as I found out they use one of the best state-of-the-art machines by EndyMed and I now know I am in really safe, professional hands!"
"Dr Karim was lovely and listened to my concerns. So happy with the results. Had a free consultation and had the treatment there and then. The clinic is a calm environment. Definitely going back."
"Dr Sabika was amazing when helping me to choose the right treatment for hyperpigmentation on my face. She recommended Obagi Nu-Derm, and WOW... amazing results... I feel like a new person, very confident and going back for further treatments for my legs and arms. Very pleased and satisfied in every way. Follow-ups were managed extremely well, and their treatments are very flexible around work. Love u guys xx"
"I'll let the photo speak for itself. I can't take any credit - my doctor is a miracle worker. I've been a patient since 2009 and I can't find anyone with a better eye or more talent. Dr Sach makes me the best version of myself. He is always personable and respectful, and I now consider him a friend."
"Words can't express how amazing Dr. Sach and his staff are. He is a true professional and he explains every single treatment in detail. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone that wants to improve without it being noticeable. He is a true artist of making the visible invisible..."
"As per usual the Revere Team have worked wonders with me. Woke up this morning looking 10 years younger, fresh-faced, without the obvious signs of treatment that I've had from other clinics in the past. Personally I would never go anywhere else. From the time you meet Sach or Sabika, you feel totally relaxed, they listen to exactly what you want and then advise you on what treatment is best for you. In my opinion, they are the best at what they do and I couldn't recommend them enough! Thanks guys (once again)! xxxx"
"Amazing service - comfortable and personable as well as being very discrete. I wouldn't go anywhere else!"
"I've had treatments at Revere Clinics for quite some time now, and I've always experienced nothing but the best treatment and support. Many of their treatments are new and innovative, but the team are super skilled, confident and reassuring - they are truly pioneers in their field! They explain each treatment so well and always put me at ease, as I'm a bit nervous around needles. Always great results from Revere."
"Very professional team."
"Revere is the absolute best. They are tried and tested, and I've recommended numerous friends to them. Now we all swear by Dr Sach and the team at Revere. Best service and insanely natural, beautiful results! I will never ever go to another doctor!! If you want an excellent doctor and an honest consultation go to Revere!!!"
"Over the last 18 months, I have tried several different consultants and treatments to help 'roll back the years' - in particular, to solve a deep line that ran from my eye to my ear, leaving me with a heavy, tired look. I spent fortunes with other consultants and each time was left feeling disappointed and let down. I then found REVERE and DR SABIKA KARIM. For the first time on this journey, I felt that Dr Karim knew exactly what I wanted and she delivered. I cant begin to tell you how I felt when she gave me the mirror after just one treatment - I got the effect that I was so desperately looking for.
I can't recommend Revere and Dr Karim enough. I feel so lucky to have found them. I am 100% confident in their treatments and can now look in the mirror and actually like what I see.
Thank you, Revere!"

"Dr. Sach is a consummate professional and a gifted artist. He has an amazing ability to make you feel like you are the only person in the world. His holistic approach ensures that you have total confidence in him and the results are truely excellent. My husband said how pretty and well I was looking less than an hour after my appointment, now that is what I call a result!"
