Our skin peels use naturally derived fruit acids to exfoliate the surface of your skin and improve a number of skin concerns. By removing dull, dead cells from the surface of your skin, skin peels immediately reduce problems such as open pores, blemishes and fine lines.Whether you’re a beginner, regular or pro-peeler, the combinations of active ingredients in our skin peels allows you to tackle persistent skin concerns.
Epionce Lite Refresh peels are our gentlest options, ideal for your first peel. They offer a really deep cleanse, for a fresh, glowing complexion. You’ll see an improvement in tone and texture, reduced redness and pigmentation and an improvement in acne and fine lines. Even though these peels are gentle they are also powerful and you can see the results in an instant. These peels can also be tailored to your skin type and level of active ingredients can be increased to make it a more advanced peel.
Popular with celebrities, skin re-surfacers and chemical skin peels offer a far more effective solution to targeting the deeper layers of your skin and addressing your concerns than high street products. Individually tailored to you, the techniques and chemicals used will specifically target your concerns and the deeper layers of your skin. Suitable for all skin concerns.
Epionce Lite Refresh and SkinCeuticals Gycolic & Lactic peel, unless otherwise advised, do not require any pre-treatment preparation.
What are skin peels?
Skin peels are the low maintenance answer to flawless, decongested skin – you’re just one peel away from brighter, smoother, younger-looking skin! Skin peels are ultra-effective treatments; there’s a reason they’re the beauty industry’s first choice when it comes to our own skincare essentials.
If you’re like many people who’ve never tried them before, you might be a little bit scared to try a peel. In reality, peels are a powerful, flexible addition to your beauty regime, whether you want to cleanse deeply or effectively treat everything from fine lines to acne.
How do skin peels work?
Different skin peels work in different ways, though the process is similar for all. After prepping and protecting delicate areas, such as the region around your eyes, your specialist will gently brush on the peel solution. You might feel a little tingly and it will feel warm on your face – this is the active ingredients getting to work.
After your skin peel, your practitioner will cleanse away every trace of the solution used, and then – to be sure there’s nothing active left on your skin – they will use a specially formulated neutralising solution. They’ll then moisturise, soothe and protect your treated skin with appropriate products, and recommend an aftercare routine tailored to your skin, including cleanser, advanced B5, anti-oxidants and the ever-essential SPF.
Q: Will it hurt?
A: Absolutely not. Many customers say they really enjoy their peels – the process has been described as ‘a bit like an intense facial’. Whilst the solution gets to work, you might feel tingling and your face will get warm, but it’s not uncomfortable.
Q: Won’t my skin, well, peel?
A: The peel bit of the peel is at a cellular level, so depending on what level peel you go for there might be some mild peeling. This generally occurs with the more advanced peels such as the Dermaquest TCA and Modified Jessners peel. This will all be fully discussed with you during your initial consultation and prior to treatment, so if you have any concerns you can talk over these with your practitioner.
Q: Will I be able to go to work?
A: All our peels are ‘no down time’, and there’s no need to worry about skin shedding, redness or irritation. In the case of intermediate and advanced peels, your practitioner will prescribe products to prepare your skin before hand. In all cases, they’ll recommend an aftercare routine to keep your fresh new skin looking and feeling gorgeous.
