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.
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.
Types of Skin Peels Available:
OBAGI BLUE RADIANCE PEEL [MEDIUM] (£115)A light to medium peel, combining salicylic and glycolic acids, the BPR is excellent for treating wrinkles, open pores, acne and acne scarring.
DR LEVY PRO PEEL [MEDIUM] (£140)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.
This peel can also be performed on the Décolletage with the Dr Levy Décolletage Regenerating Silk. Ask your therapist for more information.
TRANSFORM TCA PEEL [STRONG] (£350)The ultimate medium to heavy peel using TCA acid which deeply penetrates the epidermal layers to completely regenerate a new layer of skin. The Transform Peel is ideal for heavy wrinkles, pigmentation, sun damage, open pores and acne scarring.

Peels can re-surface skin you're worried about anywhere on your body!
The skin that grows back after a chemical peel is smoother and younger looking. They can treat wrinkles, skin discolouration and scars anywhere you are concerned about.
