Chemical peels at Enhance Aesthetics and Wellness
When people think of chemical peels, they often think back to that episode of Sex and the City and are wary of of what will happen afterwards.
At Enhance Aesthetics and Wellness, we have been using AlumierMD chemical peels for years, helping people achieve great looking skin.
Here, our founder Charlotte Thompson shares her expert opinion on these chemical peels.
What is an AlumierMD Chemical Peel?
An AlumierMD chemical peel is a professional-grade skin treatment designed to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin. It involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin, which prompts the body to naturally shed dead skin cells and stimulate the production of new, healthier skin cells.
AlumierMD chemical peels are customised to address specific skin concerns, such as ageing, acne, hyperpigmentation, and even rosacea. They can vary in intensity, with some peels being more superficial and others penetrating deeper into the skin.
What happens during the chemical peel treatment?
During the treatment, a peeling solution is applied to the skin for a specific amount of time, depending on your desired results and your skin type. Afterwards, the solution is neutralised and removed. Your skin may appear slightly red or irritated straight after the procedure. Over the following days and weeks, smoother, brighter and more youthful-looking skin will be revealed. However, don’t be surprised if your skin doesn’t shed like a snake, our peels are designed to promote gentle exfoliation and some see no visible peeling at all.
Do I need to hide away in a dark room for days afterwards?
It is normal for skin to be slightly 'glowy' for some hours afterwards and we advise you to avoid make up straight afterwards, along with sun exposure, hot baths/showers and exercise, but other than following our aftercare advice, there is no 'downtime' to our AlumierMD peels.
It is important to note that AlumierMD chemical peels should only be performed by trained professionals, as they require expertise to ensure the right type and strength of peel is used for each individual's skin. Additionally, proper post-treatment care and sun protection are essential to maximise results and minimise potential side effects.
Chemical Peels sound harsh, can I have one if I have sensitive skin or active acne?
Yes, it is possible to have an AlumierMD chemical peel if you have sensitive skin or acne breakouts. However, we recommend to come in for a free consultation so that we can assess your skin's suitability and advise the appropriate type and strength of peel for your specific needs, or recommend other treatments available at Enhance.
AlumierMD offers a range of chemical peels with varying levels of intensity, including peels specifically formulated for sensitive skin. These peels are typically milder and gentler, designed to minimize irritation and minimize the risk of adverse reactions.
During your consultation, be sure to disclose any known sensitivities or allergies to the practitioner performing the peel. They will take this information into account and tailor the treatment accordingly.
How much do AlumierMD peels cost?
At Enhance Aesthetics and Wellness we have 2 types of peel. Our Original AlumierMD peel costs £125 and is an ideal starting point for anyone looking to see improvements in their skin.
