What is a skin peel? Also sometimes called a chemical peel or an acid face peel, it is a quick, non-invasive treatment that can improve skin texture, leaving you with a glowing complexion and a more youthful appearance.
Skin peels are very effective at promoting cellular renewal and improving skin appearance. They are suitable for different skin types and can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring and skin discolouration. In short, they are a one-stop shop for skin rejuvenation.
While we often speak of a skin peel as being carried out on the face, in reality they are also highly effective at improving the appearance of neck skin as well as removing blemishes from the backs of the hands.

Chemical skin peels start with the surface of the face being thoroughly cleansed to remove any dirt, make-up, oil or other impurities.
The dermatologist or nurse will then gently apply the liquid peeling agent to the surface of your skin.
The peeling agent in chemical peels is a solution that causes the skin to exfoliate and then peel off, which is what leads to skin renewal and glowing skin.
The length of time the liquid will be left on your skin depends on a number of factors such as the condition of your skin, the results that the dermatologist or nurse wishes to achieve, as well as the strength of the actual peeling agent being used.
During this time most patients report experiencing a warm tingling sensation, but it is rarely painful.
The peeling activity results in the renewal of your skin cells and a process that is known as re-epithelisation, or regeneration of the treated area.
Once the liquid has been removed then you will need to strictly follow the skin peel aftercare information that is given to you. You will be told that it is essential to avoid direct sunlight on your skin for a minimum of several days after your skin peel treatment.
Contrary to many people’s understanding, chemical skin peels do not have to lead to excessive peeling and a week (or longer) of staying indoors.
In fact, for patients who have not previously had a chemical peel, our Dermatologists will often prefer to start with a superficial gentle skin peel that may only result in light or minimal peeling activity.
Depending on the result required, we will recommend the level of skin peel that will best suit your skin condition and lifestyle.
Chemical peels can be used for a wide range of skin issues. They can help to reduce fine lines, mild acne scars, superficial blemishes, age spots as well as mild sun damage. And they are suitable for any skin tone and a broad range of skin types.
If you are after brighter skin, wish to balance out an uneven skin tone, or need treatment for a particular skin concern like the ones listed below, then a skin peel is the cosmetic treatment that can return your skin health and beauty to a glowing state.
Depending on the patient and the degree of active acne, we may also recommended a superficial peel for patients with acne.
By removing dead skin cells and excess oil from the hair follicle, the acne can be improved.
At our Dermatology Clinic on London’s Harley Street we offer a full range of chemical peel treatments, which all differ in their strength, peeling activity and downtime.

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.
