What is a Skin Peel?

A skin peel is a mild form of exfoliation to remove dead skin cells from the top of the skin. A course of peels help to improve the appearance and texture of the skin relating to the visible signs of ageing and improves the texture and appearance of acne-prone skin. Skin appears more refined and radiant with an overall improved appearance. At About Face we have more than 10 different peels that we can chose from depending on your skin’s needs. Let our skin experts create a bespoke treatment for you.

How will it improve my skin?

A skin peel will reduce wrinkles and fine lines, improve pore size and treat dry skin and dull skin.

What happens during treatment?

The skin is cleansed and prepared for the application of peel that is the best option for your skin.  Once the peel is applied a mild tingling sensation may be felt but is not uncomfortable. Once your therapist has completed the peel treatment, they will apply moisturiser and sunscreen to end the treatment.
