Chemical Skin Peels

Chemical skin peels are a cosmetic treatment to encourage skin cell turnover, to reveal fresher, newer and rejuvenated skin gently and effectively. They can be used to reduce scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, and are even known to encourage skin to look firmer and less saggy as they work within the skin to stimulate collagen production – we tell our clients we are trying to encourage our skin cells to behave a bit more like they did when they were younger!

Our AlumierMD Professional peels are superficial (meaning they work on the top layers of the skin, and provide a progressive impact) and can be prescribed for a bespoke treatment depending on the skin concerns and have little to no downtime. They are great for generally ageing concerns, pigmentation and sun damage, Rosacea, Acne and scarring.

Peels are only 50% of the solution though – your own routine and the products you use are the other 50%. Our free Skin Consultation service ensures you know absolutely everything you need to do to maximise your results and ensure you protect your skin from today onwards.


No – there is virtually no down-time to an Alumier chemical skin peel. The products work gently within the layers of skin, but the results happen gradually rather than all at once, meaning you don’t have to take a week off work!

Immediately afterwards, our clients generally leave absolutely glowing! The skin looks refreshed and feels soft and hydrated. Over the next few days, the skin remains feeling fabulous, and after a few days a little patchy flaking may be noticed, however it is subtle and make up can be used – we often get told that foundation goes on much better after a peel.

Initially, best results are achieved by having peels every 2 weeks for up to 6 treatments, then maintenance peels can be performed monthly thereafter. However all of our skin peels are suitable for standalone treatments, and still leave the skin feeling gorgeous.

Our peels are very safe as a walk-in treatment, however if you have recently had strong sun exposure, an enzyme peel is better than a full depth chemical peel, and gives equally lovely results but avoids any risks of post-peel pigmentation.

Darker skin tones can have an enzyme peel as a walk-in treatment, but for deeper peels it is advised to pre-treat with homecare products for 2 weeks to avoid post-peel pigmentation.
If you are pregnant, you would be better advised to have an enzyme peel rather than a full chemical peel, and an allergy to aspirin means that the deeper chemical peels are not suitable.

However, most people can safely have a lovely, effective peel with no pre-treatment. We always do a full skin and health assessment prior to undertaking any skin peels or treatments, and our consultations are always free of charge.
