Medik8 chemical peels are professional-grade exfoliating acids to help resurface and retexture the skin.
Downtime 3 Days
Treatment Time 45 minutes
Results can be targeted to visibly improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, pigmentation, dullness, uneven skin, and to clarify and decongest the complexion.
POST TREATMENT CARE
24 hours post-peel your skin will feel tight and appear slightly flushed. Within 3 days your skin will start to flake. Do not pick at any flaky skin or use any harsh exfoliants (chemical (AHA/ BHA cleansers / toners) or physical (grainy scrubs)) for at least 3 days post-peel. Don't spend extended periods of time in direct sunlight. Always wear a broad spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin.
FOLLOW UP STEPS
A course of up to 6 treatments will produce the most optimal, long-term skin benefits.
For more information about what results you can expect or the number of treatments that are necessary to treat your skin concern, consult with your Dermal Clinician.
WHO IS NOT SUITABLE
Chemical peels are suitable for almost everyone and we have a varied range which caters for the most sensitive skin right up to more advanced strength formulas. Certain skin conditions with compromised barrier functions may not be suitable for a peel, and will need to be stabilised prior to treatment. Our Advanced Dermal Aestheticians will be able to guide you upon consultation.
