What is a Skin Peel Treatment
A skin peel uses a chemical agent to exfoliate the outer layers of the skin. It stimulates cell turnover revealing fresh, radiant skin. Skin peels are ideal for refreshing and revitalising skin that looks tired, dull and lacking in radiance. They can also be used to treat acne, sun damage, pigmentation, fine line and wrinkles, and scarring.
They work by removing damaged outer layers of skin to reveal smoother, younger-looking skin beneath. Skin peels and agents used vary depending on the depth of the exfoliation required and on the skin concern being address. Depending on the depth of the peel, we can use glycolic acid, trichlororoacetic acid (TCA), salicylic, mandelic acid and lactic acid based skin peels.

Following a full consultation, assessment and diagnosis the correct peel will be prescribed for you depending on your skin type and skin concern. The skin is cleansed and prepared, before the peel is applied. The peeling agent will remain on the skin for 5-15 mins depending on which peel is being used, before being washed off. Your skin is then moisturised and protected with a broad spectrum SPF. At Fortes Clinic, we can offer:
