Using a chemical solution, a facial peel exfoliates the skin, removing the top layer of dead skin cells and allowing new skin cells to be replenished. This means that a new layer of skin can be revealed which looks smoother, younger and fresher than before.
Facial peels are used to treat wrinkles, pigmentation, acne, sun damage and scars. They stimulate cell renewal through accelerated exfoliation which works deep into the layers of the skin to resurface it.
A facial peel has a number of benefits. The pigmentation caused by sun damage can be targeted, as can superficial scarring, and facial peels can also help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. In addition, this treatment is effective in treating acne and congestion through removing build up on the skin, which then can help your home skincare products penetrate deeper when applied to the face.
Chemical peels provide enhanced exfoliation which leads to healthy, glowing skin. Depending on your skin type, we may recommend a course of chemical peels so that you can achieve your optimal results.
It is important to weigh up the risks involved against the benefits that the treatment can bring – just as with all types of medical aesthetic treatment.
Your medical aesthetic practitioner will talk you through any risks and complications, although possible side effects are usually minimal. They include redness and flaking skin, this is completely normal and will pass quickly.
For anyone who would like to refresh their skin, or who finds that pigmentation, acne scarring or an uneven skin tone aren’t being helped by ordinary skincare products, a facial peel could be the answer.

Your journey step by step
Your journey with The Hospital Group begins with a consultation with our friendly medical aesthetic practitioners, this may be an Aesthetician, Nurse Practitioner or Doctor. During this conversation you can talk through why you’re interested in this treatment, how much it costs, if there are finance options available to you, whether you’re suitable for treatment, if you’ll need a one off treatment, or a full course, as well as potential treatment dates.
You can ask our medical aesthetic practitioners any questions as they are extremely knowledgeable and have undertaken extensive training. If you feel ready to proceed, we can carry out a laser patch test (where applicable) and book your first treatment for a date and time that suits you.
You can ask your medical aesthetic practitioner any final questions on the day of the treatment. All pre- and post-treatment advice will be discussed prior to the day itself, so you will know exactly what to expect during your treatment, including how long it will take, and how it will feel.
For most medical aesthetic treatments, you will be able to leave the clinic as soon as your treatment has been completed, and you should be able to go about your normal day-to-day activities. If you experience any mild discomfort, redness or swelling, this will subside within the following days. Any specific aftercare requirements will be discussed at your consultation.
