Project Description


Chemical Peels - Chemical Peels

A chemical peel provides a skin exfoliant to chemically remove keratinised structures of the epidermis restoring a radiant complexion. Safe and easy to use with no or minimal downtime.

The skin has three layers:

  • The epidermis – the outer layer we see
  • The dermis – made up of connective tissue such as collagen & elastin, the dermis serves as the skins structural support network
  • The subcutaneous tissue – contains fat cells, these cells help make the skin look plump or full

The skin ageing process is caused by many factors including:

  • Excess free radicals
  • Environment (e.g chemicals, UV exposure)
  • Lifestyle (e.g stress, smoking and diet)
  • Insufficient hydration
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Vitamin deficiencies

The effect of the ageing process causes:

  • The epidermis thins. The cells and matrix lose their ability to retain moisture
  • The dermal layer thins and produces less collagen
  • The elastin fibres responsible for maintaining skin elasticity begins to wear out
  • The subcutaneous fat cells shrink, unable to support the weakening dermal layer

The results of the ageing process include:

  • The loss of moisture retention result in dramatically dryer skin
  • The reduction in collagen and weaker elastin fibres cause wrinkles to form and the skin to sag
  • The sebaceous glands enlarge but produce less sebum oil which further dries the skin
  • Shrinkage of the fat cells make wrinkles and sagging skin more evident
  • As the skin degrades wrinkles form, the skin texture and resilience diminishes.

Skin rejuvenation treatments aid the remodelling of the epidermal and supporting dermal structures to gain improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.

Glycolic Peels

Glycolic acid is a type of Alpha Hydroxy Acid derived from sugar cane (it can also be made synthetically). Due to its smaller molecular size, glycolic acid is more effective than other alpha hydroxy acids and when used correctly can improve the look and feel of the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.

Glycolic acid works in a number of ways, primarily through its exfoliation properties. On application the glycolic acid penetrates the upper layer of the epidermis, weakening the binding properties of the lipids that hold dead skin cells together. This action allows the layer of dead skin cells to dissolve revealing the underlying skin.

Glycolic acid is particularly effective for skin rejuvenation because of the following unique properties:

  • Exfoliates by thoroughly removing the uneven, rough layer of dead skin cells, resulting in a more compact stratum corneum
  • Penetrates through the upper layer of skin to begin exfoliation from the bottom up, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Increases moisture retention by binding with water and pulling it through the stratum corneum, improving skin hydration and overall skin health
  • Reduces the amount of surface skin oil, which aids the removal of blackheads and other skin impurities and can help stimulate collagen production within the dermis

Ultimate Eye Corrector Peel

Visible improvement of the signs of photoaging in the undereye area.

The eyes are the focal point of the face and one of the first places we start to age. The skin around the eyes is thin and with age begins to show fine lines and take on a crepey texture. Treating the delicate skin around the eye can be tricky. Lasers can damage the eye, so this limits how we treat this area. Chemical peels that penetrate to the appropriate depth in the skin, can improve texture and tighten skin. 
  • Treat skin laxity, fine lines, “stretchable” wrinkles and scars
  • Improve skin texture, reducing roughness
  • Treat hyperpigmentation (Brown spots and Melasma)
  • Tighten large pores
  • Increase collagen and skin density
