With age, patients often notice skin blemishes and fine lines appearing on the face and the backs of their hands. These sun-induced aging features can be treated with a chemical peel, specifically designed to rejuvenate the skin in these area treating a range of conditions including acne, sun damage, pigmentation, fine line and wrinkles. Chemical skin peels deliver fantastic results in skin regeneration and are one of the most frequently requested medical cosmetic treatments in the UK. Not only do chemical peel treatments remove the superficial layers of skin (epidermis), they also stimulate production of the body’s own source of collagen which is the substance in the skin responsible for providing its elasticity.
At skincare different treatment options are available depending upon the depth of the peel that is required I will advise you on which one is right for you. We offer the Glycolic Facial Peel a superficial peel, which is perfect if you simply wish to replenish your skin and achieve a more youthful appearance, Juvéderm® Volite an Innovative Injectable Treatment designed to Improve Skin Quality or if you are interested in a deeper skin peel, stronger concentration we offer Retinol or TCA peel particular good for acne scarring. Over time (approx 6 months to 1 year) your skin will appear fresher and younger looking and fine lines will disappear. Occasionally several treatments are required to achieve the desired result.

G&T Peels use a highly advanced combination of glycolic acid and taurine. The high levels of glycolic acid act as the peel agent while the taurine is there to soothe your skin and counter-act some of the negative effects commonly associated with skin peels. Taurine is an amino acid that helps reduce redness and irritation, without impacting on the positive work that the glycolic acid is doing. Glycolic acid is one of the most effective, clinically proven Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) peels available. It increases exfoliation to produce outstanding results such as rejuvenating your skin and leaving skin softer, with a more youthful appearance.

I had lost a lot of confidence, due to Melasma on my forehead and nose, a thickening of the skin which made my brow furrowed and made me look permanently narky. Rachel recommended the best course of treatment (in this case a course of G&T peels 5 in clinic, and products to use at home) as well as a minimal amount of botox injections - to lift the area. I look and feel so much better. I have confidence back when speaking to people and don’t feel like they are staring at my forehead!! Rachel made the whole experience wonderful - her clinic is gorgeously decorated, her manner puts you at ease immediately, and her knowledge and skills are second to none. I would highly recommend Iskincare and Rachel.
