Skin Peels – You don’t need to peel to rejuvenate
Does the mention of a chemical skin peel make you wince?
“Ten Years Younger” & Samantha in “Sex in the City” makes you think of bright red faces shedding skin like a snake and think all peels are the same……..
Well they’re not & it’s not necessary to do that to achieve remarkable results.
A skin peel is as a way of resurfacing the skin, improving skin texture, firmness, brightness & appearance.
Skin Peels can be a useful & effective treatment for skin problems including:
Acne | Acne Rosacea | Acne Scarring | Wrinkles & Facial Lines | Freckles | Sun damage | Pigmentation | Dry skin | Dull Rough Skin | Blackheads |Whiteheads | Open Visible Pores |Ingrown Hairs | Scars| Smoker’s Skin | Hormonal Skin problems; Pregnancy, Menopause & Adolescent’s Skin |
What is a skin peel?
Many skin problems are caused by a build up of dead skin cells. Pores can block trapping oils and bacteria causing spots, blackheads, milia and acne. Skin can become hardened, dull, dry & rough. New cells are made in the skin’s “foundation” layer and like a brick wall are built up & pushed to the surface. They form a protective layer like roof tiles before detaching as the new cells come up to replace them. If these old dead cells aren’t regularly removed the skin can develop problems.
This process slows down as we age; skin can look dull, fragile and parchment like.
By removing this debris in a controlled manner you can stimulate the skin’s functions and regain healthy, smooth, clear, bright skin that is supple and re-elasticised; Skin looks and acts younger. Peels stimulate the cells which initiate new cells for healing and collagen production.
My holistic approach backed with scientific evidence based products and treatments means that I use natural peeling agents to work WITH the skin not against it.
I mainly use RegimA Peel & Heal peels which contain natural acids such as Lactic acid from milk, Malic acid from apples. Hibiscus acid exfoliates even sensitive skin, citric acid treats pigmentation, salicylic acid from willow unclogs pores and reduces spots. They have low pH to gradually penetrate the dead skin. There is definitely NO thinning of the skin or long term problems that other chemical peels create such as pigmentation, irritation, excessive skin shedding. NO tight shiny “mannequin” faces like you can get with deep chemical peels. These peels are time dependent and are available in 30% to 70% peels.
We start treatments with a gentle peel and build up the time they are in contact with the skin over a series of treatments – increasing the percentage as necessary. The 70% peels are medical grade for very course, deep wrinkles and pigmentation.
As the dead upper layer is removed the body is stimulated to make new skin cells including collagen and elastin, new capillaries are built bringing nutrition and the “wall tie” connections between skin layers are fortified – in the same way an injury forces skin to repair.
Our peels are safe for all skin types including black and Asian skin. They don’t make your skin sensitive to sunlight and can be done all year round. They are designed to cause minimal if any peeling. Skin is treated progressively.
What happens in a peel treatment?
After a thorough cleansing the peeling solution is applied to the skin giving a feeling of warmth & tingling which lasts briefly and includes a full facial protocol of nurturing products to “feed” the cell turnover and rebuilding we’ve started.
You leave the clinic looking fresh and radiant with perhaps a slight “flush” that settles within a couple of hours.
Aftercare and home maintenance is strongly recommended and we will suggest what products to use after treatments. Results can be seen and felt after first treatment with ongoing improvements during a series of treatments.

Although not a peel an Oxygen or O2 Lift treatment will make a difference to your skin’s function and appearance.
Oxygen treatment can be used on any skin type or colour. Oxygen’s anti-bacterial action makes it extremely beneficial for acne especially cystic acne. Oxygen facials lighten and brighten the skin and reduce redness – ideal for Rosacea. The result is clear and luminous skin.
Oxygen facials lightens and brightens blemish marks and pigmentation.
Stimulates fibroblasts – the cells which initiate new cell formation, healing and collagen production.
Decreases facial redness, calms superficial capillaries reducing redness.
To enhance the penetration of the bubbling activated Oxygen mask and to decongest acne, blockages and lighten pigmentation I incorporate a fruit enzyme gentle peel in the treatment.
Regenerating antioxidants and re building stem cell serums are massaged into the skin with firming, sculpting and lifting massage strokes.
Improvements can be seen and felt after one treatment however for optimal results a course of treatments are recommended
Problem: Ageing skin, wrinkles, loss of firmness, sun damage
Circadia’s SWiCH Dermal Repair re energises your skin
This has to be one of the most exciting developments in anti ageing skincare treatments I have worked with!!
SWiCH Recharges your skin’s batteries!
A scientific breakthrough that helps enhance mitochondrial (cell energy) function and restores skin to its youthful appearance. Using Pyruvic acid to “turn on” the energy production in treated cells.
This is Barbara – I know her personally and can vouch for the fact she has had neither cosmetic surgery nor Botox – I’ve checked for scars!
This is a leave on treatment which activates the skin cells energy output to behave in a more youthful manner. I often incorporate SWiCH Dermal Repair treatments into a general rejuvenation programme for clients as it improves skin function and response to treatments & skincare products.
A pleasant treatment with little disruption downtime & wonderful results. This treatment can improve the face, neck, chest and hands.
Results: younger, smoother, glowing, firmer, brighter skin!
A course of six treatments at monthly intervals is recommended» Properties and Actions: More information
Based on the physiological principle of inducing the natural repair system of the skin to become active. Activation of the repair system effects a restoration of both sun / enviromental (extrinsic aging) damaged skin and intrinsic (internal) skin aging changes.
Helps induce repair with minimal epidermal damage. Very little if any down time.
Unlike most acid-based treatments, the SWiCH Epidermal Repair System System is a leave-on system. The active ingredient remains to provide the continuous treatment for repair and restoration.Since tissue damage is minimal, repeated treatment can be performed at regular intervals without risk of over-treatment. With the SWiCH Epidermal Repair System System, it is now possible to achieve repair of the skin without having to induce tissue damage. The body’s repair systems, including that in the skin, are held in a ready state at all times. Understanding what is needed to trigger the system is the key to the efficacy of the SWiCH™ System.Any repair system requires a large input of energy. Biologically this is in the form of adenosine triphosphate or ATP. This energy source is generated by a natural cycle as part of the metabolism of food.
For the SWiCH Epidermal Repair System to be effective the active ingredients must penetrate into the skin. Next, the repair mechanism must be switched on and the energy supplied – just as you flip a light switch to supply electrical energy to a bulb
The three parts of the SWiCH Epidermal Repair System are (1) effective penetration, (2) generate energy, and (3) turn on the repair system.
Results: younger, smoother, glowing, firmer, brighter skin!
