What is a Skin Peel?

Posted on 3 August 2016

What is a Skin Peel?

A skin peel is a topical solution that varies in strength and purpose and is tailored to each individual. They range from very light peels that can be performed by trained beauty technicians, to medium and deep depth medical grade resurfacing peels that can be performed by a trained medical practitioner only.

They can also be referred to as a Skin Resurfacing treatment. The reason they are often called a skin peel is simply due to the shedding of dead skin that follows the treatment in order to reveal your fresh, radiant skin underneath.

How exactly do skin peels work?


Skin peels work by increasing the rate of cellular regeneration, in other words they speed up the exfoliation of dead skin on the surface layer of your skin. This results in re-generation of new skin cells and increased collagen production. The type and strength of skin peel used determines how many of the surface layers of skin are removed.


Are Skin Peels Safe?

Like any treatment there are potential side effects to consider.
Common and expected side effects following your skin peel are;
  • Temporary redness of the treated area
  • Dry & flaky skin (this will vary depending on the type & strength of peel used)
