Skin Peels – Reveal a fresher, more radiant you
Does the mention of a chemical skin peel make you wince?
Do you think of Samantha in “Sex in the City” with a bright red face shedding skin like a snake and think all peels are the same……..
They aren’t & it’s not necessary to visibly peel to achieve remarkable results.
A skin peel is as a way of resurfacing the skin; stimulating collagen to improve skin texture, firmness, brightness & appearance.
Benefits of a skin peel
We use a range of acid peels to address;
- Acne, blackheads, milia,

What is a skin peel?
With age and sun damage 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.
Our holistic approach to restoring skin with natural peeling agents to work WITH the skin not against it.
I use RegimA Peel & Heal, AlumierMD, Circadia & Image peels.
There is NO thinning of the skin, NO tight shiny “mannequin” faces like you can get with deep chemical peels or laser resurfacing.
Treatments start with mild peels to condition the skin and can progress in strength.
With modern peel technology it is not necessary and rarely needed that a peel that causes visible peeling or shedding of the skin.
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 skin of colour. 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 chosen peel solution is applied to the skin giving a feeling of warmth & tingling.
Facial peel treatment includes extractions if needed & application of appropriate serums & products to enhance the results.
You leave the clinic looking fresh and radiant with perhaps a slight “flush” that settles within a couple of hours.
Skin may feel tight, dry or flushed with some dryness or mild flakiness after a few days depending on the peel strength selected.
Aftercare and home maintenance is required. We will suggest what products to use after treatments. Results can be seen and felt after first treatment with ongoing improvements. A series of monthly peels is recommended.

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.

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 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 at our Manchester clinic 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!
