Skin peel treatments make use of acids and enzymes to exfoliate away layers of the skin to reveal fresher, clearer, more youthful looking skin beneath the surface. Resurfacers are a milder type of skin peel and are sometimes referred to as “superficial exfoliating treatments”.​

Secrets Medical Centre's skin peeling treatment harnesses the power of naturally occurring acids and active ingredients in order to deeply exfoliate and brighten the skin. The powerful blend of ingredients in skin peels work to visibly reduce the appearance of open pores, remove dead skin cells, target blemishes, acne and pigmentation, and visibly smooth fine lines and wrinkles.

The procedure is used all over the world to treat skin conditions such as fine line and wrinkles, acne, hyper- pigmentation and sun damage. Skin peels are pain-free, though some can lead to light swelling or peeling of the skin for a few days after the procedure. Peels are an incredible popular treatment, as results are visible immediately and leave skin feeling softer and appearing smooth and radiant.

Chemical Peel Treatment

Chemical peeling is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin that is typically performed on the face, neck, hands or any area of the body. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother, more even-toned, and less wrinkled than the older skin. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun.​

There are 3 types of chemical peels: deep peeling, medium peeling and superficial peeling. Superficial chemical peeling is mild as it treats only the outer layers of the skin. It can be beneficial in treating mild cases of acne and in providing a general glow to the face. Deep and medium chemical peelings are to be performed only by specialized physicians with high level of expertise.​

Although they are most commonly used on the face, chemical peels can also rejuvenate the skin on the back of the hands and the décolleté. Chemical peels can be used to:​

  • Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
  • Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage, ageing and hereditary factors
  • Improve the appearance of mild scarring
  • Treat certain types of acne
  • Reduce age spots, freckles and dark patches due to pregnancy or taking contraceptive pills
  • Improve the look and feel of skin that is dull in texture and colour

​Chemical peels come in different strengths ranging from superficial peels, which have minimal downtime and can be done in your lunch hour, to deep peels which can give dramatic results but which involve a longer recovery time. Usually a course of treatments will be required for superficial peels but they can also be a great
way to give your skin a boost before a special occasion.​
