Peel away imperfections
At House of Kaurture Cosmetic Medical Clinic, we offer a range of skin peels including Glycolic, Salicylic & Jessner peels. These innovative peels can be adapted to the best formulation for your individual skin type, condition, lifestyle, and according to what you would like the treatment to achieve.
Chemical skin peels go beyond exfoliation by providing dermal and epidermal stimulation, and supporting skin renewal. If you have a skin disorder such as hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne, flaky skin, or fine lines and wrinkles, a cosmeceutical treatment such as a skin peel can help remove dull, unhealthy skin cells and boost the creation of healthy cells underneath.
Am I a Candidate For Chemical Peels?
Almost everyone can benefit from a chemical peel. Peels can improve the look of your skin dramatically and can leave you looking younger and healthier.
If you have any of the following concerns you could be a candidate for a peel:
Lines and wrinkles
Dull or lifeless skin
If you have a history of poor skin healing and keloid scarring you may not be suitable for a peel, especially a stronger, deeper peel where scarring is a risk. If you have any type of infection on your face you may be best advised to wait until it clears up before having a peel. People with acne who have been using isotretinoin within the last 12 months are not suitable. People with dark skin types such as Asian or Afro-Caribbean skin are more at risk from hypopigmentation (loss of pigmentation in the skin) a medium or deep peels, may not be suitable.
How Much Will My Chemical Peel Treatment Cost?
The cost of peels varies greatly depending where you are having your treatment and the type of peel you are having. A superficial peel can be anywhere from £50-£175
What Are The Side Effects Of A Chemical Peel?
There are virtually no risks associated with light or superficial peels. As they only mildly exfoliate the skin you should no get any negative side effects. On rare occasions some people develop hyperpigmentation (brown marks on the skin) but this can be avoided by ensuring you wear sun protection, even when it is not sunny outside.
The best way to discover if a peel is right for you is to have a consultation with an House of Kaurture aesthetic practitioner who can asses your skin and talk to you about your concerns before advising what type of peel may best suit your needs.
What Should I Do Before Chemical Peel Treatment?
Before you have a chemical peel you will need to have a consultation with an House of Kaurture aesthetic practitioner/beauty therapist. This will be your opportunity to discuss your skin concerns so they can decide what type and depth of peel will be best suited to you.
A medical history will usually be taken to make sure there are no reasons you should be having the treatment. You will then be asked to sign a consent form.
You should avoid exfoliating your face, sun bathing or using tanning beds and changing your normal skincare regime, unless instructed to do so by your House of Kaurture practitioner. It is important to remember that with certain types of peel you will have to prepare your skin beforehand. This will involve using homecare products for about two weeks before treatment. Make sure you stick to the routine given to you by your House of Kaurture practitioner as this will enhance your results and make the treatment itself less irritating.
