Chemical Peels

( From £200 )

    Chemical peels are used to treat a number of skin concerns. Depending on the type used, chemical peels can address signs of skin ageing, pigmentation, acne or scarring.

    At Revere, we primarily 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.


    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.

Before & after

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.

  • Is there downtime involved?

    Chemical peels can cause some redness and dryness in the treated area following the procedure. Patients must avoid direct sun exposure 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.
