Chemical Skin Peels

Chemical Skin Peels “Reveal a new layer of beautiful skin” What is a chemical peel? A superficial peel is a minimally invasive procedure in which an acid-based solution is applied to the face or decolletage to remove dead skin cells. After several minutes, the solution is removed, revealing smoother, more refined-looking skin. The purpose of a peel is to remedy skin ageing, pigmentation marks, acne scars, seborrhea etc. The skins texture is refined and the complexion becomes clearer and brighter. Here at Weston Cosmetic Clinic our nurse practitioners offer a range of chemical skins peels from superficial/light, to medium/deep. So whether you just want to freshen up your skin or remove fine lines, pigment and uneven skin tone we have the answer for you. The Clinic specializes in brands such as Skin Tech, Neostrata and Obagi for chemical skin peels. Below are a few examples of treatments on offer, however a consultation is always recommended in which the most appropriate peel can be prescribed for your self to help you achieve your expectations and to give your skin a radiant glow. Easy Phytic Peel “Put the glow back in your face” This is a superficial peel with a gradual, accumulative effect. It is for patients who do not want their skin to flake, but who want an effective acne or anti-ageing treatment. It is repeated once or twice a week for the duration of the treatment. Your social life is not affected. Easy TCA “look young again” This peel, recommended to treat age spots and acne, also puts the glow back in tired skin. It is painless and treatment consists of 4 sessions (one peel per week). It need not interrupt your working life at all and can be done during your lunch break. Easy TCA is also used to rejuvenate the hands and to treat scars and stretch marks. No anesthetic is needed, as it is not a painful procedure. This is a lunchtime peel. Only Touch “A deep local treatment” Recommended for very localized age spots on the hands, face and decolletage, in combination with Easy TCA. Obagi Blue Peel Radiance The Obagi Blue Peel Radiance offers a unique blend of acids to provide a gentle but effective peel. It exfoliates the uppermost damaged skin resulting in tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin immediately after just 1 use. For best results, it is recommended to have 1 peel every 2-4 weeks, for a total series of 4-6 peels. Depending on the condition of your skin, one or two layers of the Blue Peel Radiance will be applied. With each layer, you will experience a slight tingling sensation. The acid is self-neutralising and this sensation automatically subsides within 3-5 minutes. Your skin will begin to peel with 3 days and should be through the peeling process within 7-10 days. In most cases, the peeling should not interfere with your normal life style. The clinic always recommends the use of a sun block as part of your post treatment care. This will be discussed during your consultation along with other post treatment advise, to ensure you get maximum results from your chosen procedure. Prices start from £60 (superficial) – £440 (deep).
