A chemical peel is a minimally invasive procedure that helps improve the appearance of skin. During the procedure, your physician/aesthetician carefully applies combinations of powerful solutions to the skin to remove dead skin cells. The solutions penetrate into the skin causing dead skin cells to peel off. The new skin is smoother and more refined looking.
There are many types of chemical peel preparations and the right preparation depends on your skin type and desired results. Light or superficial chemical peels usually consist of alpha and beta hydroxy acids, such as glycolic, lactic or salicylic acid that are combined to to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, mild to moderate photodamage, uneven tone and texture and acne/acne scarring.
Medium depth peels often use TCA (Trichloroacetic acid) to help with photo ageing and prevention of skin damage due to excessive exposure to UVA/UVB, superficial wrinkles, skin fragility, early chronoageing, smokers skin and dull skin.
The Perfect Peel
is a revolutionary peel that will transform your skin into looking younger, healthier and clearer in just one week. The Perfect Peel can be used on all skin types and requires no pre-peel skin preparation. The process takes less than 15 minutes and is virtually pain free.
The Perfect Peel founds itself on a key anti-aging ingredient never before used in a peel: Glutathione. Glutathione is the ultimate antioxidant, penetrating deep into the cellular level of the skin to fight oxidant damage and is the anti-aging answer to premature wrinkling. Our bodies naturally produce glutathione but as we age, our levels deplete due to sun exposure, air pollutants, environmental stress and the aging process itself. Glutathione is also proven to reverse melanin’s metabolism, lightening dark pigmentations.
The Perfect Peel blends glutathione, kojic acid, TCA, retinoic acid, salicylic acid, phenol, and a blend of minerals and vitamins, including vitamin C. Kojic acid is a powerful lightening agent and proven to increase collagen and elastin production, resulting in skin that is brighter and tighter. TCA, phenol and retinoic acid reduce wrinkles and correct pigment problems, while salicylic acid exfoliates the skin and reduces inflammation. Alone the ingredients are powerful, but in combination they produce results that are astonishing.
To follow The Perfect Peel, you are given an individual home treatment pack. This pack contains retinol wipes and a vitamin C moisturiser to assist the peeling process and enhance your results.

Easy TCA Pain Control
Easy TCA is the most famous and internationally known Skin Tech® brand medium depth chemical peeling for skin regeneration. Considered to be the safest, most effective and easiest peeling with TCA (Trychloratic Acid). Easy TCA is used to treat fine lines, photo-aging, acne problems, acne scars, pigment problems (hyperpigmentation), melasma, keratoses, stretch marks, “age spots”, etc. on the face, neck and décolletage or wherever required if indicated.
The TCA peel works by causing sloughing or removal of the upper layers of skin. Normally these are the layers that are damaged by the elements such as sun, wind and neglect. By removing the upper layers of skin, the overall skin texture is dramatically smoothed, superficial wrinkles are quickly eliminated and colour irregularities are improved. The advantage of this peel is that the application is easy and ensures even uptake into the skin. Patients benefit by regaining a fresher more vibrant appearance.
TCA has been used for many years to treat facial wrinkles, age spots, pigment abnormalities, mask of pregnancy and other superficial skin problems such as sun damaged skin, acne and the appearance of superficial scars.
When TCA is applied to the skin, it causes the top layers of cells to dry up and peel off over a period of several days. When the old skin has peeled off, it exposes a new layer of undamaged skin which has a smoother texture and more even colour.
TCA is applied to your skin. Treatment is administered in a single session, of around 15 – 30 minutes duration. During this period, you may experience a slight burning sensation. This sensation is so slight, no sedation or anesthesia is required.
At the end of your treatment session, you will be provided with a treatment information leaflet. This document acts as a reference card to enable you to maximise the benefits from your treatment.
More than one TCA peel may be needed to achieve the desired result. This will be decided during your free consultation.
After having a TCA peel your new skin will be sensitive to sunlight for at least 6-8 weeks afterwards. During this time it is very important to protect the new skin with sunscreens, hats and the avoidance of strong sunlight.
