The ultimate skin rejuvenation technique, chemical skin peels are one of the most effective ways to treat signs of aging, discolouration, acne and scarring, texture and UV damage.
A peel is most effective when used in conjunction with the correct skin care regime and we believe in preparing the skin before treatment and most importantly providing our clients with products post treatment to heal and repair the skin.
At Queensway Skin Clinic our skin peels are carried out by Clinicians Dr Rebecca Hierons and Dr Uzma Olbrich using the ZO® Dr Zein Obagi medical range.
This one is better known as the 'red carpet' peel because of its popularity in LA before red carpet events.
With little or no redness and peeling afterwards, just a nice subtle fresh glow – this one is perfect if you are looking to try your first peel.
The red carpet peel uses three effective exfoliating ingredients together, salicylic, lactic and citric acid to remove dead skin cells and superficial imperfections to reveal brighter, clear skin underneath.
You may choose to have this treatment as a one off, or for maximum results a course of 3-6 treatments would be recommended.
A highly effective treatment for many of the signs of skin aging, including melasma, sun damage, fine lines, uneven texture, large pores, dullness and acne.
It works to improve the health of facial skin through exfoliation, cellular stimulation and rejuvenation. There is little or no downtime and skin healing is accelerated with a calming post treatment cream. This peel is recommended for its longer lasting benefits, going beyond exfoliation by proving dermal stimulation to encourage skin renewal.
The 3-Step stimulation peel is suitable for any skin type or colour. So that the skin can tolerate the peel, we would recommend that skin is pre-conditioned prior to the application of the peel to improve skin health and accelerate healing.
We would recommend 3 treatments and then a annual top up for optimal results.
The most unique thing about the new 3-Step Stimulation Peel is that post treatment peeling is very mild or even unnoticeable in many cases, as most of the dead cells are removed by the twice daily washing following the peel. There is minimal or no downtime with this peel, and your skin will look healthier very quickly,
Otherwise known as the 'blue peel', this is a highly effective treatment that will tighten, brighten and resurface the skin. Using trichloracetic acid (TCA) which is a non-toxic chemical that when applied to the skin dehydrates skin cells. These cells then peel off over a period of several days to expose a new layer of fresh, undamaged skin which has a much smoother texture and even tone.
This peel is used to treat many skin issues, both medical and cosmetic such as brown spots and age spots, uneven skin pigmentation and melasma appearance, sun damaged and aging skin.
Due to the exfoliating effects of this peel, a 7 day recovery period is to be expected.
