Skin Skin Peels

Peels involve the careful application of a chemical exfoliant to the top layer of the skin for the removal of superficial lesions and blemishes as well as improving the texture and radiance of the skin.

Are peels right for you?

We do not recommend peels during pregnancy or whilst breast feeding. They should not be combined with chemical peels or laser treatment. Recent scarring, depilation (hair removal) and sun burn and retinol products also make a reaction likely so we do not recommend use of peels in these situations.

Side effects include redness and irritation, these are usually mild and last just a few days so we recommend delaying a peel if you have an important social event.

At Belle Vue we analyse your skin and recommend the peel most appropriate for your skin type. We use a number of different peels, but most commonly one of the following.

We recommend that to get the best results it is essential that your skin is correctly prepared before performing the peel to ensure the best result is obtained and reduce the risk of side effects.
