Chemical Peels

At Silk Space Clinic

What are chemical peels?

Chemical Peels are a great intensive yet non-aggressive modality in your treatment plan to fast-track results, encouraging rejuvenation in the deeper levels of the skin with minimal downtime.

Before beginning treatment, we first complete a detailed skin consultation where we can recommend a suitable course of peels, reinforced with a thorough home care regime to achieve the best results. Our peels utilise alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids and vitamin A in differing levels or strengths. We take care to introduce these ingredients slowly, building your skins over-all health and strength without causing any trauma.

Benefits of our peels can include intense hydration and plumping, increased cell turn-over, stimulation of collagen and elastin, normalisation of your sebaceous glands, improvement of pigmentation, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles or textures and pores.

A course of peels can be incredibly useful, and is recommended for the treatment of acne. Book in a consultation if you are unsure what the best treatment is for you.
