Although there are products which can now be bought to perform a Chemical peel yourself at home, it is much safer to use a trained aesthetic practitioner to administer the peel. At Renatus Clinic, near Coventry, the fully trained Practitioner would discuss all options and provide all necessary information about Chemical peels and how they work, and answer any questions you may have.

A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Chemical peels are most commonly used on the face, but they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck or hands. Chemical peels are used to treat can range of conditions from acne or acne scarring, age or liver spots, fine lines or wrinkles, freckles, irregular skin pigmentation, scars, sun-damaged skin, rough skin or skin with scaly patches. It is important to remember that peels bought for home use will not be comparable in strength to those used by beauty clinics.

At Renatus Clinic in Rugby we have a variety of Chemical Peels on offer, of a variety of strengths to treat different conditions. The Practitioner will cleanse the skin and then apply a solution to lower the pH of your skin so that it allows the peel to work. It is brushed onto the skin and left for a period of time depending on the type of peel. With some of the medium depth peels a warm to hot sensation may be felt along with some burning or stinging. The treated area may look slightly pink after the medium depth peel, by day three four the treated area may start to peel or flake. The Radiant peels have very little downtime unless the skin is severely compromised. Sun exposure is not advised for one month after treatment to protect the fresh new layer of skin and a Physical Broad Spectrum SPF must be applied to protect the skin daily to prevent further pigmentation.
