Combining 6 in clinic peels and a tailored at home skincare routine, here at Destination Skin our Medik8 practitioners will guide you through your personalised treatment plan and be with you every step of your skincare journey.
At your Consultation, your Practioner will assess your skin and discuss with you what your main skin concerns are, whether it be blemishes, fine lines and wrinkles or wanting to get back that glow. From there, your personalised regimen will be created and you will be provided with your 12 Weeks to WOW! preparation skincare featuring Medik8’s renowned CSA philosophy.
What are chemical peels?
Medik8 peels use an efficient blend of professional-grade acids that promote skin resurfacing and improve texture. The peels penetrate the top layers of the skin and induce deep exfoliation to visibly reduce the appearance of dark spots, wrinkles or blemishes.
Our Medik8 range includes 5 different types of chemical peels for a variety of skin concerns such as acne, scarring, fine lines and pigmentation. These can be purchased as single treatments, multiple courses, or mixed and matched as part of a tailored treatment plan to tackle multiple issues.
How do Medik8 peels work?
Your practitioner will apply a special formula containing naturally occurring acids to the skin. This will provide exfoliation, boost collagen production and improve skin cell turnover. The solution features time release technology, allowing for a longer contact time with the skin to enhance results.
At the end of each treatment, your practitioner will also apply a complimentary Medik8 Ultimate Recovery Bio-Cellulose Mask (RRP £65) to enhance post-treatment skin repair, promote hydration and reduce downtime between peels.
For best results, we recommend a course of 6 Medik8 peels.

How to prepare for a Medik8 peel
Chemical peels require a thorough ‘prep’ routine prior to starting the treatment. The preparation time is heavily dependent on your skin type.
Skin types are measured from 1 to 6 on the Fitzpatrick scale, with 1 being the fairest skin tone and 6 the darkest. Preparation time can be as long as 6 weeks for dark skin tones, and a minimum of 2 weeks for fair ones.
During your consultation, your practitioner will determine your skin type, advise how long you need to prep for and which products you need.
About prep products
Throughout the prep time, you will need to use a specific set of Medik8 products. This will ensure your skin is all set up for the peel. The prep products promote Medik8’s CSA philosophy (Vitamin C, SPF, Retinoids) and work in conjunction with the chemical peels to enhance results and maintain healthy skin.
Following your consultation, your practitioner will inform you which product pack is right for you and how to purchase.
What happens after a chemical peel?
Following the completion of your treatment, and after each chemical peel, your practitioner will provide you with clear instructions on what to do and what to avoid to get the best results.
After each skin peel, the practitioner will also apply a complimentary Medik8 Ultimate Recovery Bio-Cellulose Mask (RRP £60) at no extra cost. The mask delivers a boost of hydration, enhances skin repair and reduces downtime between peels.
The aftercare pack contains a range of expertly-formulated skincare products that gently protect the skin and promote fast healing. Depending on your skin and peel type, your practitioner will advise which aftercare pack you should purchase.
How It Works
Frequently Asked Questions
Are chemical peels suitable for me?
Chemical peels are suitable for almost everyone (unless otherwise advised by a skin specialist). The Medik8 range includes a variety of chemical peels for all skin types, including sensitive skin, acne-prone skin and ageing skin.
What is the downtime between each peel?
You only need to wait 2 weeks between each chemical peel. Thanks to the active ingredients in the Medik8 prep products which promote the CSA philosophy, the skin will heal much faster so you can enjoy the results as quickly as possible.
Can I just have one peel instead of a full treatment course?
Yes, you can have a single chemical peel to maintain overall skin health, however, if you wish to see the real benefits, we recommend a course of 6 peels.
What are the expected outcomes?
24 hours post-treatment your skin may feel a little tight and appear flushed. Within 3 days, your skin will start to flake and peel, but within a week you will notice a clearer, more even complexion. Over a course of 6 chemical peels, results will become considerably visible.
Where can I buy the prep products from?
You can purchase your Medik8 prep pack in-clinic, after your consultation.
Can I use chemical peels alongside other skin treatments?
Yes. Medik8 peels can be used on their own, or in combination with other treatments as recommended by your practitioner.
How long does a chemical peel take?
Each Medik8 peel will take 45 minutes.
Where can I buy the aftercare pack from?
The Medik8 aftercare pack is available to buy in-clinic.
Can chemical peels make skin worse?
Although the aim of chemical peels is to improve the skin, there are strict instructions to follow in order to get the best results. Your practitioner will let you know what to do and what to avoid to ensure your skin is protected.
