What is a Medi Aesthetic Peel Treatment?
Professional Medi Aesthetic Peel treatments involve the use of chemical peel solutions that are applied to the face and/or neck, decolletage and hands to improve the appearance of the skin. Our peels use acids to break down & exfoliate the top layer of skin tissue. This causes a response that signals the healing cascade, leading to the production of new collagen, elastin & skin cells, resulting in brighter, less pigmented, more even toned skin whilst also giving you a smoother, firmer, more youthful appearance.
What skin concerns can be treated with Medi Aesthetic Peel Treatments?
Our Medi Aesthetic Peels can be used to treat multiple skin concerns & conditions including skin ageing, dark spots, uneven skin tone, acne & acne scarring, sun damage & rough, uneven texture. Book yourself a complimentary consultation with one of our qualified skin therapists to find out which peel is best suited for your individual skin needs.
Are Medi Aesthetic Peels painful?
No – none of our peels are supposed to be painful. They may cause different levels of tingling, redness and a little discomfort but not pain.
Are there any side effects after I have a Medi Aesthetic Peel treatment?
After a peel treatment your skin may feel a little warm, tight & it may look a little red. These are completely normal reactions & will continue to calm down over the next 3 – 5 days following a peel treatment. Your therapist will advise you of the aftercare that you will need to follow post treatment to ensure your skin heals effectively.
