Chemical Peels

AlumierMD offer superficial to medium depth peels known for their excellent results and safety profile.

What is Our Peel Philosophy?

We are delighted to be partnering with AlumierMD, who offer superficial to medium depth peels known for their excellent results and safety profile. AlumierMD believes in repeated treatments for progressive and gradual results to avoid side effects and downtime associated with deeper peels.

Chemical peels should be performed by highly qualified skin care professionals in a clinical setting so that they are delivered safely and effectively.

When peels are performed regularly the skin gets used to the process and begins to rejuvenate itself like younger skin. To ensure that the body doesn’t react to this form of exfoliation as it would do a trauma, which can lead to pigment changes, exfoliation must be introduced gradually giving the skin time to adjust.

Pre-treatment products can precondition the skin, accelerate the results and minimise complications. Post-treatment heal and soothe the skin, reduce downtime and maintain the results.

Professional treatments and clinical homecare enhance one another.

Treatment expectations: Beautiful skin doesn’t happen overnight, and treatments take time to show the results. A single peel treatment can provide the effects of bright and radiant skin, however more significant results in treating texture issues, lines, acne and sun damage can take up to 8 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve skin texture and tone. An acid is applied to the skin to lower the PH, which loosens the connections between dead skin cells, inducing exfoliation and stimulating new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. Chemical peels can also thicken the epidermis, increase dermal volume and stimulate collagen.

Chemical peels have been used dating back to ancient Egypt. Cleopatra used sour milk to improve the appearance of her skin, according to some sources. Lactic Acidosis (an alpha hydroxy Acid) is the active ingredient in sour milk.

How are chemical peels classified?

Chemical peels are classified as light (superficial) medium or deep, depending on the depth of penetration of the ingredients used. Light peels exfoliate to various levels of the epidermis. Medium depth peels treat through the papillary dermis and deep peels to the mid-reticular dermis. Deeper peels require more downtime and increase the chance of side effects which include photosensitivity and pigment changes.

On what areas are chemical peels used?

Peels are usually performed on the face but can be used on neck, décolleté and hands.

How can peels benefit the skin?

AlumierMD peels improve the skin firmness and texture, decrease fine lines and wrinkles. Peels also even out the skin tone, improve acne and reduce the appearance of pore size.
