By gently removing the damaged outer-layer of your skin, our medi-aesthetic peels help to improve tone and texture.
Our customized peels can help to offer results you can see and measure, by helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, blemishes and sun damage. Pores can look smaller, and skin can look brighter, fresher and more youthful. Medi-aesthetic peels can be particularly effective at treating rosacea, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, redness, acne and visible signs of aging.
Some preparation is required before some peels. Please see our pre-treatment notes for further details.
