Before booking a chemical face peel or any course of treatment, we recommend you book a consultation. The following is just a guide:
We have a wide choice of chemical peels that can be mixed and matched to achieve your skin goals. A chemical peel is actually a dermo-cosmetic procedure used to stimulate accelerated and controlled skin regeneration by using Chemoexfoliation agents. Depending on which combination of chemicals we use determines which layer of the skin is acted on.
The effects of chemical skin peels are sometimes over exaggerated in the press and by urban myth. Chemical peels rarely cause the skin to peel. They are used to enhance and perfect the skin gently. They do this by stimulating the skin to naturally produce more collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans.
What is a skin consultation?
It starts with a nice long chat where we figure out how you feel about your skin and what you might like to change. You don’t need to have a problem to book a skin consultation, it can just be a plan to make great what is already good. The plan itself is like a wish list, it’s everything we could do for your skin, either to fix a problem, improve or prepare for a special occasion like a wedding or special birthday. At the end of your skin consultation, we will have a thoroughly inclusive plan for you covering all skin supplements, products and treatments available. I say it’s a wish list because getting great skin is a journey. Everybody has limitations for that journey these could be in time, lifestyle or finances. You may be a busy Mum with only 5 minutes to yourself, someone who travels for business or even retired with new time for you. All of these things will be taken into account and together we will design something life appropriate for you. Sometimes we can fix something really easily with just a tweak of your routine or small addition to it. One of my favourite examples of this magic wand effect is Sarah’s Story. All we did to get her skin fix was add in some skin omegas. Please see Sarah’s Story under the Testimonials page. We charge £20 for this appointment, but it’s redeemable against any purchases you may wish to make. However, these are designed to be informative, planning sessions, not selling opportunities.
