Chemical Peel

The results are almost immediate.We usually recommend 6 weekly treatments. 

Dermaquest TCA/Salicylic Peel

A comprehensive and potent anti-aging peel, this treatment was formulated to combat severe photo damage, distended pores, deep wrinkles and dull, sagging skin. A rescue operation for distressed skin, using 2% Salicylic Acid and 7% Trichloroacetic Acid to penetrate the deepest epidermal layers.  

TCA Peel

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peel removes the upper layers of skin damaged by the sun and wind or simply through neglect. The peel smoothes the skin, and superficial wrinkles and colour irregularities are improved. Patients benefit by regaining a fresher more vibrant appearance.The advantage of this peel is that its pasty like texture makes the application easy and ensures even uptake into the skin. The TCA Peel is one of the most innovative ways to easily and optimally rejuvenate the skin.Treatment is administered in a single session of around 15–30 minutes duration. During this period, you may experience a slight burning sensation.More than one TCA peel may be needed to achieve the desired result. This will be decided during your consultation with a treating aesthetic specialist.After the TCA peel your new skin will be sensitive to sunlight for at least 6-8 weeks. During this time it is very important to protect the new skin with sunscreens, hats and the avoidance of strong sunlight.

Cosmedix Peels

CHEMICAL PEELS in Brighton 

What is a peel?

A peel regenerates the skin, often making it smoother with fewer wrinkles. The procedure is sometimes used on other parts of the body, including the neck and hands.

How are the Cosmedix peels different?

Traditional chemical peels typically consist of chemical solutions applied to the skin to form flakes or blisters that eventually peel off. This painful, old technology process destroys healthy tissue, forcing the body to heal itself. CosMedix’s chirally correct, non-traumatic peels succeed by stimulating healthy change. The soothing collagen therapy enhances skin’s appearance resulting in a beautiful, renewed complexion.

Tell me more about being chirally correct...

Chirally correct chemical peels are associated with better ingredients, less downtime and fewer unfavourable side effects than other chemical peels. No anaesthesia is required for chirally correct chemical peels, and they are safe enough to be repeated bi-monthly.

What kinds of conditions can peels help?

Peels are often used to treat: 

Acne

Aging skin

Dull, weathered skin

Excessive sebatic oils

Post acne scarring

Blackheads and whiteheads

Blotchy pigmentation

Stretch marks

Sun spots

Dark skin discoloration

Wrinkles

Scarring (non-keloidal scars)

What kind of skin peels are there? 

CosMedix offers Correct Peels categorized as “Today’s Peels” and “Tomorrow’s Peels.” 

Today's Peels use natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA) to freshen and exfoliate the skin by removing dead cells in order to promote new cell growth. These peels can be used without any prior preparation of the skin.

Tomorrow’s Peels, designed to correct the damage done yesterday, are stronger treatments that go deeper and make the skin look tighter and smoother. The skin needs 10 to 30 days advance preparation prior to application.
