The term “skin peel” sounds a lot scarier than the reality. Not every skin peel will cause uncomfortable skin shedding and redness you may have seen on TV; this level of deep peeling is rarely needed. In reality, Light and medium depth peels are preferred, with only a little dryness for a few days, before revealing an illuminated skin complexion. Repeated treatments, for progressive and gradual results are advised, avoiding the side effects and downtime associated with deeper peels.
Chemical peels work by deeply exfoliating the surface layers of the skin, forcing your body to quickly replenish it with new cells. When peels are performed regularly, the skin gets used to this process and begins to rejuvenate itself like younger skin. Peel treatments improve skin texture and firmness, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. Peels also even out skin tone, improve acne-prone skin and reduce pore size appearance.
We provide enzyme and light- to medium-depth facial peels from Alumier MD, that are known for their excellent results and safety profile. No two skin are the same, which is why we customise each client’s treatment program to their individual skin-type and/or skin condition. Not only do Alumier MD peels contain scientifically-backed pure active ingredients, they also allow for facial zoning customisation, meaning we can often treat multiple skin concerns within one treatment. Pre-treatment skin care products from Alumier MD will precondition the skin, accelerate results and minimize complications. Some peeling may be expected 3 days later, however this will look more like flakes than peeling, and will disappear in one to 2 days. Preparation products are key to keep any skin peeling to a minimum whilst maximising the result.

Will it cause my skin to shed?
Post-treatment peeling is often similar to peeling after a tan. In some cases, exfoliation occurs on a cellular level and is not apparent to the naked eye. The exfoliation you will experience varies depending on skin profile. AlumierMD chemical peels are light- to medium depth, and are formulated to reduce irritation and redness. If you are worried about peeling this will usually occur after 3-5 days so remember this if you have a special event coming up!
What are the main benefits of a skin peel?
Peel treatments improve skin texture and firmness, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. Peels also even out skin tone, improve acne-prone skin and reduce pore size appearance.
A peel is basically exfoliating the skin which will speed up cell renewal (this slows down as we get older). It’s a very gentle treatment will minimum down-time but a treatment that will give you fab results.
