What Is A Skin Peel?
A chemical skin peel involves the application of a fine liquid to the surface of the skin to promote peeling. This peeling activity results in cellular renewal and re-epithelisation of the treated area, a process that will help to improve the surface and appearance of your skin.
Chemical skin peels can help reduce fine lines, mild acne scarring, superficial blemishes, age spots and mild sun damage. At our clinic on London’s Harley Street we offer a full range of chemical skin peels, which all differ in their strength, peeling activity and downtime.
Will My Skin Peel A Lot?
Contrary to many people’s understanding, a chemical skin peel does not have to lead to excessive peeling and staying inside for days. In fact, for patients who have not previously had a skin peel, our Dermatologists will often prefer to start with a gentle peel that may only result in light peeling activity, but will still produce noticeable improvement in the skin’s appearance.
Depending on the result required, our Dermatologists will recommend the level of skin peel that will best suit your skin condition and lifestyle. Chemical skin peels can also be successfully used in conjunction with other treatments that we provide in the clinic, such as those using laser or light based energy.

Responses to treatment will vary from person to person and may even vary in the same person over time. It is for this reason that results are not guaranteed.
I was a bit apprehensive, never having had a chemical peel before but Dr Haus’ receptionist made me feel very welcome. The premises were bright, spacious and airy. Dr Haus was very professional and put me at ease immediately, explaining the treatment I was having in detail. I came out feeling amazing. My face this morning is absolutely radiant and feels like silk. I am already planning my next visit.
