Pall Mall Medical - for all your private healthcare needs, whether you are self-paying or have private medical insurance.
Chemical skin peels help to regenerate the skin by improving the tone and texture and appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They are a deep exfoliating treatment which removes the top layer of skin, helping to reveal a brighter, fresher complexion. At Pall Mall Medical, we offer a selection of different grades of glycolic and TCA peels.
All facial chemical peels are applied by a Consultant Facial Surgeon within a free of charge consultation.
To prepare the skin prior to your peel and to maximise the effects of the peel afterwards, home care kits are highly recommended. These are to be used at home before and after your treatment as a maintainer.
It is advised that you start to use the products two weeks prior to your peel appointment. Products can be purchased over the phone and posted to you directly. As a maintainer, singular products can also be purchased.
One of the most popular types of chemical peels is glycolic peels. These are a milder peel which helps to improve the texture of the skin by removing the top layer of dead skin and boosting the growth of new skin. As well as making the skin look more vibrant, glycolic peels can also lessen the look of fine lines and improve minor pigmentation.
The skin experts at Pall Mall Medical recommend a course of 4 glycolic peels for optimum results. These are superficial peels for epidermal stimulation, dull complexions and wrinkles. They have an extremely smoothing effect for softer skin. Made by DermaCeutic, these professional peels soften irregularities caused by acne, actinac keratosis and pigmentation disorders.
The Mask Peel is excellent for greasy, acne-prone skin with visible pores, excess sebum and facial cleansing. The Mask contains 30% glycolic acid.
The Milk Peel is excellent for dull complexions, wrinkles, epidermal stimulation and has a smoothing effect for softer skin. The Milk contains 50% glycolic acid and 10% lactic and salicylic acid.
Both the Milk and Mask Peels are applied by a facial surgeon, after a free of charge consultation. Maintenance creams are available for purchase to ensure a well-tailored personal care treatment at home.
TCA (Trichloroacetic acid) peels are a medium grade peel which helps with pigmentation, fine lines and rejuvenation. These peels are popular with patients who have ageing skin, dark spots and wrinkles.
Smoker’s complexions, stretch marks and acne scars benefit better from this stronger peel. Patients will expect to see some visible signs of peeling for around 2 days, approximately 3 to 4 days after having the peel applied. This peel works deeper into the skin than the glycolic peel helping to bring brand new fresh pink skin to the surface.
Cosmo peels contain lactic acid, salicylic acid, citric acid, retinyl palmitrate, ascorbic acid, selenomethionine and alpha tocopherol acetate.
Up to 3 peels are recommended for the best results at 2-week intervals. We recommend patients combine this deeper peel with a well-tailored personal care treatment at home. We ask patients to apply serum and turnover cream before and after the peels.
