Facial, Skin & Chemical Peels

Peels are used to remove damaged skin cells, revealing healthier skin underneath

Skin, facial and chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that can be applied to the face, hands, and neck. They’re used to improve the appearance or feel of the skin. During this procedure, chemical solutions will be applied to the area being treated, which causes the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off. Once this happens, the new skin underneath is often smoother, appears less wrinkled, and may have less damage.

There are a number of reasons people may get chemical peels. They may be trying to treat a variety of things, including:

  • wrinkles and fine lines
  • sun damage
  • acne scars
  • hyperpigmentation
  • scars
  • melasma
  • uneven skin tone or redness

Really happy with my initial consultation with Regina. Regina not only took me through the whole process step by step but crucially she listened to my concerns and was able to be open and honest about what we could achieve with my hair density.

"I received comprehensive information, advice and recommendations"

Had my first consultation with Hillside. Strong core beliefs in promoting ethical values. I received comprehensive information, advice and recommendations from professionals and experts in the industry. I have been to numerous clinics whose aim was to make sales, I had even received incorrect advice and subsequently had the wrong treatments… but Hillside are unique.

How it works

Skin peels can be used to treat a whole range of skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne and acne scarring, age spots, enlarged pores, dark areas and sun-damaged skin.

Skin peels are ideal if you are looking to quite literally give your skin a fresh start. Book a consultation with one of our trained experts to discuss which skin peel is best for you.

There are three different types of chemical peels that you can get. These include:

  • Superficial peels, which use mild acids like alpha-hydroxy acid to gently exfoliate. It only penetrates the outermost layer of skin. Recovery time is about four to seven days. Your skin may temporarily be lighter or darker.
  • Medium peels, which use trichloroacetic or glycolic acid to reach the middle and outer layer of skills. This makes it more effective for removing damaged skin cells. Your skin will recover about five to seven days after a medium chemical peel, though you may have redness that persists for months. Your skin will initially swell, and then form crusts and brown blotches before revealing new skin.
  • Deep peels, which fully penetrate the middle layer of the skin to remove damaged skin cells; these peels often use phenol or tricholoracetic acid. Deep chemical peels will cause severe swelling and redness, with burning or throbbing sensations. It’s common for the eyelids to swell shut. It will take about two weeks for the new skin to develop, though white spots or cysts may last several weeks. It’s common for redness to last for several months.

As skin peels are a tailored treatment, our expert practitioners will balance the most effective ingredients in order to address your skin concerns, while not compromising the integrity of your skin’s condition. At HHC, we treat a number of concerns using skin peels, but some of the most common treatments include:

Skin peels for acne-prone skin, resulting in:

  • Reduction of inflammation and breakouts caused by acne
  • Removal of dead skin cells
  • Even skin texture and tone

Skin peels for ageing skin, resulting in:

  • Stimulated collagen production for plump and youthful looking skin
  • Hydrated and nourished skin
  • Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Skin peels for pigment spots or melasma, resulting in:

  • Eliminated pigmentation and reduced effects of sun damage
  • Rejuvenated, brighter skin

To achieve maximum results, your practitioner may recommend a course of treatments.
