CHEMICAL PEELS in Birmingham


What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are the application of a chemical agent to the skin used to create an injury of a specific skin depth with the goal of removing the top layer of the skin and stimulating new skin growth resulting in improved surface texture and appearance. The exfoliative effect of chemical peels removes dead and damaged skin cells and stimulates new collagen with more evenly distributed melanin leaving the skin youthful and radiant.

There are a variety of chemicals that can be used, which each react differently on the skin, but all are considered as chemical exfoliators. Different options of peels are:

  • Alpha Hydroxy Acids (e.g., Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid)
  • Beta Hydroxy Acids (e.g., Salicylic Acid)
  • Enzymes from natural ingredients like Papaya and Pumpkin
  • Pure peels such as our self neutralising retinol peel
  • Or blended peels that contain mixed ingredients

The purpose of all these treatments AHAs,  BHAs, pure or blended treatments  is to exfoliate the skin. Depending on the concentration, these peels will remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, or it may remove the whole outermost layer.

In most circumstances neither type of skin peel is better than the other. They are all highly effective methods of deep exfoliation and therefore what is the most important factor is selecting the type of peel for you in the consultation.

The consultation will result in a decision on the most suited product will be based on your skins individual needs and the type of skin you have.
