What is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels remove the top layer of the skin with deep exfoliation so that new, smoother skin can come to the surface and give a rejuvenated complexion. They can also effectively target specific skin concerns such as fine lines, acne, acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. So, if you have certain skin issues that you are looking to target, then you could look into a skin peel with the right ingredients and intensity to suit you. 

SKINPROJECT: Breaking Barriers. Restoring Radiance

Unlike other skin peels on the market, the SKINPROJECT range includes three levels of nanopeel with unique material properties. The products are able to reach deep into the skin layers to powerfully restore radiance in the dermis and address skin concerns. By exfoliating the skin, SKINPROJECT nanopeels break the skin barrier and rebuild skin health for ultimate skin re-awakening. There are three peels that can be tailored to targeting skin concerns for all ages and skin types:

  • SRT – Helping to reduce scars, enlarged pores, folliculitis, hyperpigmentation, light ageing and stretch marks, SRT has salicylic acid and other ingredients to feed the skin. 
  • Jessner –  Packed with ingredients that rejuvenate the skin, with actives such as salicylic acid and lactic acid, SKINPROJECT Nanopeel Jessner works to rejuvenate the skin and improves skin texture alongside certain skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, keratosis, and melasma. 
  • Eye – Both Glycolic and lactic acids are a skincare favourite for brightening and smoothing the skin; they’re just a couple of SKINPROJECT Nanopeel Eye ingredients. This nanopeel can be applied topically to the eye area to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, sun damage and age spots. 


The Benefits of Chemical Peels

There are numerous benefits of chemical skin peels, with the main one being fantastic results for building skin health and a refreshed complexion. Let’s go look at some of these benefits in more detail. 

Effective Skin Rejuvenation

A chemical peel literally sheds skin so that new skin can surface, so it’s noticeable that your skin will look and feel rejuvenated with a refreshed glow. Chemical skin peels have the ability to deliver incredible results and target concerns that other treatments aren’t as effective in addressing. If you want a fresh, revived complexion, then chemical peels can be an excellent choice.

Budget Friendly

In comparison to other exfoliating treatments like microneedling or laser, chemical peels are typically the more affordable option. If you’re looking to reap the benefits but keep the costs down, then the lower cost of chemical peels is a great reason to book in!

Less Invasive Than Anti-Wrinkle Injections

We can’t reverse time, but there are treatments that can definitely help with anti-aging. If you don’t want to have an injectable treatment such as anti-wrinkle injections, then skin peels are a great alternative and an effective treatment to help reduce wrinkles and fine lines. 

Key Considerations Before Your Chemical Peel Treatment

Like with any treatment on the market, there are some things to keep in mind before you go ahead with them. Whilst there are a multitude of benefits for skin peels, there are some things to take into consideration. Remember that you will have a full consultation with your aesthetics practitioner who will discuss your skin type and requirements with you in detail and will be able to answer any questions you might have. 

Mild Discomfort During Treatment

‘No pain no gain’ as they say… Skin peels are known to cause some mild pain or discomfort during the treatment, however this can vary for each individual. Although you will have a pre-treatment that will prep the skin before the peel, the chemical solution may result in a moderate burning or stinging sensation on the skin. This is usually short-term and will subside once the solution is neutralised. Following treatment, any discomfort can be eased with a cold compress.

Short-Term Redness

One of the most common side effects of chemical peels is redness of the skin, with some potential itchiness and dryness. This usually reduces after a few days, but it is important to protect your skin following a chemical peel treatment, staying out of direct sunlight and always making sure to use an SPF.

Downtime following treatment  

The clue is in the name: ‘chemical peel’. Once you’ve had the treatment, your skin will begin to shed to then allow new skin to the surface. This is ultimately what aids in skin rejuvenation. During the peeling stage, it is advised to avoid wearing makeup, so this is something to bear in mind and factor into your social calendar if you’re a makeup lover!
