Medical Grade Peel

A chemical peel is an effective treatment to exfoliate dead skin cell layers, and ultimately stimulate the regrowth of healthy skin in a controlled manner.

Dead skin cells accumulate on the surface of the skin as we age, and cleansing alone may not be sufficient to remove them.

A chemical peel will effectively break down this adhesive build-up that stays on the surface of the skin. The peel sheds the outer layers of dead skin and stimulates new cellular growth. Patients can expect improvements in the clarity and softness of skin, with a reduction in the appearance of rough, dry skin.

Chemical peels are particularly effective in treating oily and acne-prone skin – breaking down dead skin cells that plug hair follicles and preventing the conditions (where oil and bacteria can be trapped) that lead to acne.

Clinical peels also boost the efficacy of the Healthy Skin Solution™ program. Exfoliated skin is the ideal base to allow for better penetration and absorption of active ingredients in many skincare products. The efficacy of other procedures is boosted as well, and is why peels are often recommended as part of a treatment programme.

What To Expect

Within a comfortable 30 minute session, the skin is prepped and cleansed using an alcohol-based cleanser to remove oil and impurities.

The medical peel solution is gently applied to the face, followed by the application of a neutralising solution which will protect sensitive areas (eyes, nose, ears, mouth and neck) to prevent excessive peeling.

Patients will experience a prickly sensation from the peel solution.

The duration the peel solution is left on the skin depends on the patient’s needs and in consultation with our doctors.


There may be minimal redness in the treated areas for a period of 3 to 5 hours. Most patients will experience micro-peeling around the mouth, and cheeks in some cases.

There is no downtime, and patients may safely return to their normal routine and activities following treatment.

For at least 7 days post-treatment, our doctors and patient care counsellors advise patients to observe the following.

Any products that contain retinols or are abrasive, such as scrubs and exfoliators, must be discontinued during this period. Chemical Peels render the skin slightly more sun sensitive, so it is essential to use a good SPF sunscreen. A moisturiser is also important as cracks in the skin may appear if it is not adequately moisturised.

Prior to treatment, all potential risks and side effects will be discussed with you by our doctor and patient care counsellors.
