Questions about Peels
WHY WE RATE PEELSChemical peels are fast-becoming the number one clinical skin treatment worldwide. At a fraction of the price of laser, they can significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation and blemishes with less discomfort and downtime. Just 45 minutes per visit in the therapist's chair can visibly rejuvenate skin to provide a softer, smoother, more youthful-looking complexion. At Medik8, we recommend a course of peels to really see and feel the difference for the long haul, but sometimes it can be difficult to know where to start. That's why we invented our 12 Weeks to WOW programme.
WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?Medik8 chemical peels are professional-grade exfoliating acids applied to the skin with a small brush to help resurface and retexture. Discover our extensive range of Professional Chemical Peels here. There's something for all skin types and concerns.
ARE PEELS RIGHT FOR EVERYONE?Chemical peels are suitable for almost everyone and at Medik8 we have a varied range from our Sensitive PHA Peel which is suitable for very sensitive skins right through to our mono peels which use high-strength single acids which can even be layered to target stubborn concerns like pigmentation. Certain skin conditions / clients may need more support to ensure skin is normalised before a course of peels eg those with an impaired skin barrier. Unfortunately, we also do not recommend peels for pregnant or nursing Mums. However, there are lots of other professional facial and body treatment options we offer too - with the incredible results you've come to expect from Medik8 plus beautiful pampering textures and divine fragrances to ensure a very memorable experience. Read about all our incredible professional treatments here.
WHAT'S THE DOWNTIME?By definition, the application of acids to the skin may cause redness, skin flaking and mild peeling; but every skin is different. We recommend not to wear makeup for the first 12 hours post-peel to ensure the skin remains bacteria-free. You will be recommended a comprehensive aftercare routine to continue with at home to ensure your skin recovers and rejuvenates correctly. As a general rule, expect flaking from around the 3rd day post-peel for a maximum of 5 further days. You should avoid direct sun exposure during these recovery days and always wear a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. We recommend clients go home with our Physical Sunscreen which is a mineral, non-nano, broad spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 which provides great protection and as a mineral sunscreen is very gentle on compromised skin. To keep things simple, we offer a Post-Treatment Kit as part of your peel aftercare, with everything you'll need in 1 pack including Physical Sunscreen.
CAN'T I JUST HAVE 1 PEEL TO IMPROVE MY SKIN?
It is possible to just have a single peel, but we recommend a course of 6 to really see the long-term skin benefits. It's a little like going to the gym; you can go occasionally but the real results will come when you commit to an ongoing programme. We make starting your peel journey really easy with our Medik8 12 Weeks to WOW programme. Our network of trained therapists will work with you over a 12 week* period to visibly transform your skin through a bespoke programme of in-clinic treatments and at-home care to achieve skin that really wows.
*Duration may vary based on skin type and condition.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
24 hours post-peel your skin will likely feel a little tight and appear slightly flushed. Within 3 days your skin will start to peel but within the week you will start to see clearer, more uniform skin tone. Over a course of 6 peels, results will be even more visibly profound. We recommend taking pictures of your progress either on your own phone or many of our clinics have facial imaging equipment that can extensively track your skin's improvement across such parameters as wrinkle depth, clarity, water content etc; dependent on the skin concern you are treating. Fascinating stuff. Search Instagram for #Medik8WOW for the very latest 12 Weeks to WOW results from around the globe.
