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.
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.
Following your asessment we will be able to advise which peels (alone or in combination) will achieve the best result for you. We have detailed some of the peels we use below.
(Dry, Normal, Oily, Dehydrated, Acne, Hyperpigmentation & Ageing)
Glow Peel combines lactic acid, salicylic acid and resorcinol, creating a multipurpose resurfacing solution effective in minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation issues like age spots, discolouration and uneven skin tone. This formula exfoliates dead skin cells and stimulates cell renewal. To suit individual needs, Glow Peel can be customized by strength by numbers of layers.
When used alone we use the following basic treatment plan adapted for your skin type:
(Acne, hyperpigmentation & Ageing)

It reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation by boosting collagen production and speeding cell turnover, creating a more radiant and even-toned complexion.

Detox Clear contains salicylic acid and lactic acid for excellent pore penetration and exfoliation. Salicylic acid penetrates into the pore and exfoliates dead skin cells and excess sebum. Lactic acid exfoliates dead skin cells and hydrates. Eucalyptus provides strong astringent properties. Together, they work to smooth skin, minimise pore size experience, reduce acne and prevent new pimples from forming.
