Peel to reveal fresher, smoother skin
If your skin needs a little love, dermal peels are a fantastic treatment for revealing fresher, healthier skin. We offer a wide range of peels varying in strength and targeting specific problem areas, from antioxidant facials to acne, deep-sea and retinol peels.
Whether you want to lessen the appearance of fine lines, tackle pimple-causing bacteria or achieve a radiant shine, our highly-experienced clinicians will talk you through your options and recommend the best dermal peel for your skin type and goal.
How does dermal peels treatment work?
Dermal peels (face peels) work by removing the top layer of skin to encourage cell growth for a fresh, rejuvenated complexion. They are usually very safe procedures. During the treatment, a solution or mask with acidic properties is applied directly to the face. The acidic properties of the solution or mask increase your skin’s natural acidity levels to around 3.3 pH – up from its usual pH of 5.5. This loosens the dead skin cells causing even exfoliation. After the treatment, your face will likely be red and sensitive and may peel and flake initially.
Several of our peel treatments require you to prep your skin for a few weeks beforehand – our team will advise you. You may need multiple dermal peels to achieve your desired skin texture and appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best skin type for Dermal Peel treatments?
We recommend a consultation before booking in Dermal Peel treatments to prevent any adverse reactions. Typically, darker skin is more susceptible to experience post inflammatory hyper pigmentation after the procedure. Due to this we recommend skin prep 2 weeks prior to your treatment products such as our Aspect Dr Complete Pigment Plus or Cosmedix Simply Brilliant to prevent any adverse responses and to maximise results.
What If I’m on regular medication?
Please advise your clinician of any regular medications you’re currently taking. If you are taking any of the following: Accutane, Retin-A or Chemotherapy, dermal peels are not suggested for you.
What else can prevent me from getting Dermal Peels?
If you have sunburnt skin, cold sores or active facial rashes. Rosacea will need to be alleviated before a treatment, as well as any serious medical conditions affecting the heart or immune system.
What do I need to do to prepare for my treatment?
ONE WEEK BEFORE
Stop using any products containing Retinol or Vitamin A
Avoid waxing, electrolysis, hair removal creams, and laser hair removal treatments
Avoid sun exposure (and tanning beds)
Do not have another facial or peel treatment.
DAY OF YOUR PEEL
Do not use any products on your face containing: alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), beta hydroxy acid (BHA) or benzoyl peroxide.
Stop any exfoliating products that may be drying or irritating
Men: please do not shave the day of your treatment.
What aftercare is involved with a Dermal Peel treatment?
Aftercare depends on the severity of the peel and the individual’s skin. Typically, we recommend clients to use gentle products on their skin for the 5-7 days following their treatment. We highly encourage using and reapplying SPF every 2-3 hours. After this, the client is encouraged to return back to their normal skincare routine once the skin has returned to its pre-treatment state.
The Next 3 Days Post Treatment
Avoid extreme temperature exposure to the face. Avoid activities like: direct exposure to the sun, cooking over a hot stove, sitting near a fire, saunas or swimming. It is also recommended to avoid intense exercise as well to obtain the best results.
On the third day, or when the skin finishes flaking, the patient may continue their regular skin routine. It is important that before that, the client avoids using products with AHA. We highly recommend utilizing some form of intensive hydration product to help encourage new cell growth. Check that the products you’re using include antioxidants, Vitamins A, C and E as they will work best.
Sun protection is highly important after these kinds of treatments as they leave your skin vulnerable to skin damage. We recommend using an oil-free SPF 30 or higher sunscreen to ensure your skin stays protected.
