WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?
Chemical peels are fast becoming the number one clinical skin treatment worldwide. At a fraction of the price of laser, they can significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation and blemishes with less discomfort and downtime. Your skin will look rejuvenated, with a softer, smoother more youthful looking complexion.
MEDIK8 Chemical Peels are professional - grade exfoliating acids applied to the skin with a small brush to help resurface and retexture. Discover the extensive range of professional peels below. Your skin peel will be tailored to your skin type / concern.

DOS & DONTS
Don't pick at any flaky skin. your skin is naturally turning over after your peel and picking may create soreness and even scarring. Don't use any harsh exfoliants ( chemical AHA/BHA cleansers / toners) or physical (grainy scrubs) for at least 3 days post-peel.
Don't spend extend periods of time in direct sunlight. Always wear a broad spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin.
Stick to the aftercare regime recommenced to you. This will ensure that your skin recovers and rejuvenates as quickly as possible post-peel.

Frequently asked questions
Are peels right for everyone?
Chemical peels are suitable for almost everyone and Medik8 have a varied range from Sensitive PHA peels which are suitable for very sensitive skins right through to Mono peels which use high strenbth single acids that can even be layered to target sutbborn concerns.
What is the downtime?
Yorur skin may be red, your skin may flake and mild peeeling may occur. But every skin is different. I recommend not to wear make up for the first 12 hours post peel to ensure skin remains bacteria free. As a general rule, except flaking from around the 3rd day post peel for a maximum of 5 further days.
What is the aftercare?
You should avoid direct sun exposure during the recovery days and always wear a broad specturm suncreen with an SPF of at least 30
What results can I expect?
24 hours post peel your skin is likely to feel a little tight and appear slightly flushed. Within 3 days your skin will start to flake but within the week you will start to see clearer, more uniform skin tone. Over a course of 6 peels results will be even more visibly profound.
