What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a skin treatment technique which can be used to treat a range of skin conditions. It involves using a chemical solution to accelerate the renewal of the skin’s cells, resulting in older, dead cells peeling off from the skin’s surface. This reveals new, regenerated skin underneath, which is smoother, lighter and less wrinkled than the old skin.
(Please note that following your treatment this new skin will be temporarily more sensitive to the sun. )

What happens during a chemical peel?
A skin evaluation by a qualified professional is essential before a chemical peel is carried out. Book in for a consultation at our Teddington beauty salon and we will fully assess your skin condition and concerns before advising you on the most appropriate treatment. Before having a chemical peel, some patients may need to follow a pre-peel skin care plan for 2 or 4 weeks. We will advise you of this at your initial consultation.
How does the peeling process work?
Prior to a chemical peel, your skin needs to be fully prepared via thorough cleansing. After this, a chemical acid solution is applied to the skin surface and left there for a specified period of time to the product can act on the skin. After this, another chemical solution will be applied to neutralise the acid and raise the pH of the skin to counteract the effects. Over the following 1 to 14 days, depending on how deep the chemical peel has been, the skin surface peels off. This procedure destroys part of the skin cell connections in a controlled way, so that renewed and healthy skin can grow.
How long does a chemical peel treatment take?
Superficial peel procedures take only approximately 30 minutes, which is why they are sometimes called “lunch time peels”.
