CHEMICAL PEELS

THE LEADING DOCTOR LED CHEMICAL PEEL CLINIC IN BRIGHTON & HOVE

Lines, pigmentation and scarring can blemish the skin. Medical skin peels exfoliate the top layer of skin to remove dead cells, unblock pores and remove impurities. This process stimulates new, healthy skin cells to come to the surface and encourages collagen production to give a firmer, brighter complexion. As well as improving skin quality and overall dermal health, Chemical Peels are an effective treatment for sun damaged skin, Acne and hyperpigmentation.

Dr Ayanna Knight uses advanced techniques and offers bespoke Chemical Peel treatments developed through her experience of treating a range of skin types and dermatological conditions. Chemical Peels are suitable for all skin types and skin tones and can be used safely to treat skin conditions on the face, neck, décolletage and all areas of the body.

DCL Glycolic Peel.jpg

GLYCOLIC ACID CHEMICAL SKIN PEELS

Dull, dry, dehydrated skin

Fine lines & wrinkles

Sun damaged skin

Mild acne & blemishes

One of the most popular non-invasive treatments available with no downtime, no peeling and suitable for all skin types. This skin rejuvenation treatment leaves skin feeling soft, smooth and revitalised immediately after treatment. A course of treatments offers excellent results for improving fine lines, uneven skin tone and texture.

Glycolic acid is a superficial peeling agent naturally derived from sugar cane. This mild chemical skin exfoliant not only improves overall skin health but rejuvenates the skin’s surface by infusing Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) that stimulate collagen and elastin growth, accelerating the skin renewal process.

For our Glycolic Skin Peels we use the premium DCL brand. With 40% Glycolic acid, the peel itself is a powerful anti-microbial agent and is buffered with willowherb, a natural anti-inflammatory, making it an excellent treatment for active acne and folliculitis.

OBAGI BLUE PEEL RADIANCE SALICYLIC ACID CHEMICAL PEEL

Oily & Acne prone skin

Blackheads & blemishes

Moderate to Severe Acne

Hyperpigmentation & Sun Spots

The Obagi Blue RADIANCE Peel is a superficial, Salicylic acid-based peel offered to our clients to provide deep exfoliation and help improve overall complexion. The Blue Peel RADIANCE contains a blend of acids for a gentle resurfacing of the skin, resulting in tighter, smoother, brighter looking skin after just one treatment.

Also known as a Beta-Hydroxy Acid (BHA), Salicylic acid loosens and removes debris, oils and dead cells attached to the skin’s surface as well as embedded in the pores. As Salicylic acid is oil-soluble, it is the most effective chemical peel agent to penetrate sebum-filled follicles and pores. Along with the powerful anti-inflammatory property of Salicylic acid, Obagi's Blue Peel RADIANCE treatment is central to many of our Acne treatment protocols.

As well as offering an effective treatment for moderate to severe Acne, our Salicylic acid peel treatment is also an excellent choice to reduce pigmentation, even skin tone and shrink enlarged pores. Blue Peel RADIANCE effectively exfoliates the uppermost damaged skin layers, leaving your skin fresh, renewed and radiant.

In addition to it's rejuvenating properties, Salicylic Acid is also the recommended chemical peel option for oily, acne prone skin. Dr Knight has vast experience of treating patients with troublesome acne in which other traditional methods have failed. Our Doctor Led clinic also exclusively offers body treatments for other acne prone areas which are often missed such as the shoulders, chest and back.

OBAGI BLUE PEEL TCA CHEMICAL PEEL

Hyperpigmentation & Melasma

Deep lines & wrinkles

Sun damaged skin

Uneven skin tone & texture

The Blue Peel is designed to significantly improve the appearance and health of your skin. TCA (trichloroacetic acid) is mixed with a special blue base which is applied to peel the skin to a carefully controlled level. Due to the specialist nature of performing a medium depth peel, this chemical peel treatment can only be performed by a doctor.

TCA has been considered a standard for chemical peeling agents for many years. It is a chemical cauterant, an agent that coagulates skin protein. Frosting will occur. This peel is not recommended for Fitzpatrick levels higher than III, as hyper-pigmentation may occur. You can layer this peel to add more effect. This treatment can be used every 4-5 weeks.

The peel can be tailored to suit each individual's needs as the depth of the peel can be tailored to the extent of the problem. Due to the intensity of skin transformation, the treatment a down time of around 5-7 days is expected as the skin heals following the procedure.

To ensure optimum results from this specialist medical grade peel, it is essential to prepare the skin with the Obagi Nu-Derm System for at least 6 weeks prior to the Obagi Blue Peel.

This specialist skincare programme transforms the skin by stimulating skin cell turnover to optimise skin health. The transformative effects of the Obagi Nu-Derm System aid epidermal skin resurfacing as well as plumping the dermis as it stimulates collagen and elastin to improve overall skin health. Continued use following the Obagi Blue peel enhances overall results with a significant improvement seen in cases of Melasma and deep pigmentation of the skin.
