At Carbon Blush we offer a range of different strength acid skin peels to cater to different skin types and conditions. These include lactic, glycolic, salicylic and trichloroacetic (TCA) acid peels. Peels are used to improve patient outcomes for a range of skin conditions including ageing skin, photo damage, pigmentation, melasma, open pores, active acne and acne scarring.
Skin peels effectively exfoliate damaged stratum corneum (uppermost skin layers) and induce skin cell regeneration, collagen and elastin production, resulting in a smoother and more flawless skin. Dead skin cells are scuffed away where bacteria can harbour for acne sufferers and smooths dry, crepey skin which enhances fine lines and wrinkles.
WHAT ARE SKIN PEELS?
All facial peels remove a top layer of skin to exfoliate and speed up your cell turnover, but some remove more than others, depending on the type of face peel you decide to try. All skin peels involve applying a chemical or natural solution to your face to expedite the exfoliation process.

The Milk peel is a very light peel which combines lactic acid and is especially used for clients with sensitive skin or who have never had a peel before. This gently cleans the skin of excess oils and dead skin cells and freshens up lifeless skin.
The Silk Peel combines mandolin acid, ideal for darker or sensitive skin types and is excellent for reducing pigmentation. A course with 1-2 week intervals is recommended.
OBAGI BLUE RADIANCE PEEL
This is a light to medium peel which contains a unique and patented blend of acids to provide a gentle yet extremely effective peel, resulting in tighter, smoother, brighter looking skin immediately, after just one use. This peels is effective for all skin types, including ageing skin and acne prone skin. This peel is most effective when done in a course of 3-6 treatments. Some dryness and flaking for a few days can be common with this peel.
The Transform Peel is a strong TCA acid peel which allows deep skin rejuvenation and transformation. This radically helps to eliminate blemishes, acne scars, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and sun damage whilst increasing overall texture and brightness. A week of sensitivity, dryness and flaking is to be expected with the Transform Peel and It is advised for patients to prep their skin with the Obagi Nu-Derm System prior to TCA peels and to continue use of the Obagi Nu-Derm System as maintenance.
A miraculous herbal extraction peel, including thyme, rosemary, tea tree and other secret natural skin reurfacing ingredients. Excellent for reducing fine lines, open pores, pigmentation, acne and acne scarring.
DR LEVY AHA PEEL
This peel uses glycolic acid which is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) naturally found in some fruits. This peel can be used for treating mild sun damage to refresh the skin, even out skin tone, or improve discolouration. Additionally the peel can unclog pores and improve acne with results depending on the strength of the solution and the length of time it is left on the skin.
