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.

Absolutely amazing! Stu is knowledgeable and thorough. Book in- you won’t be disappointed.
I enjoyed my first envy facial immensely with the lovely Stuart. The results after only one treatment were amazing. My skin felt squeaky clean & definitely had a nice glow to it. I'm already looking forward to starting my course of microneedling facials. The whole team at Dermoperfection have a wonderful energy around them and make the whole experience feel fantastic ?

I can honestly say I’ve always been very very happy with the service and treatments I’ve received at Dermoperfection. A very professional and polished team who really know their stuff and how to make you look great. The proof of this is I often get mistaken for 10 years younger than I actually am so that’s a sign my treatments have been highly effective! Thank you Dermoperfection! x

I have been going to Stu and the team for about 18 months now and I honestly would not go anywhere else. Stu and the team are so professional, approachable and attentive. Stu always listens to my concerns about my skin and always knows what to do. He is so knowledgeable, experienced and I know I'm in good hands. I have been the most confident I have ever been since going to Stu. He really is a genius when it comes to aesthetics and works to a high standard. He will also be very honest if you don't need anything doing or will offer an alternative which also saves money. You can tell he's really passionate about what he does and it certainly shows in his work. I always feel like a million dollars when I leave the clinic!!! I am always recommending people and they have said exact same thing! Thank you!!!!
