A chemical peel is a dermo-cosmetic procedure that consists of provoking accelerated skin regeneration in a controlled manner through application of chemoexfoliation agents that are used to act on different layers of the skin. The peeling action causes the elimination of the external layers of the skin with the objective of stimulating collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycan production, thus enhancing its physiological and mechanical characteristics.

We offer a range of new Mesopeels by Mesoestetic® . These pharmaceutical grade peels allow us to build a tailored treatment package with various combinations and strengths to combat your skin concerns.

Skin naturally renews itself and regenerates every 28 days. However, over time and during certain periods of our lives, adolescence, pregnancy and menopause, this process is disturbed or slows down. This causes changes to occur in the skin: acne, shine, enlarged pores, texture, wrinkles, lacklustre appearance, pigmentation, dark spots, etc. A chemical peels exfoliate different layers of the skin to reboot skin cell renewal and minimise imperfections on the skin’s surface.


There are various types of chemical peels that target different skin blemishes. The various concentrations of peels make it possible to fine-tune the effects and depth of exfoliation, treatment after treatment, to ensure progressive results.  We use two categories – single acid peels and combined acid peels. Single acid peels are available in various concentrations and use a single type of acid to address specific skin concerns. The combined peels are formulated with an effective mixture of acids, to improve the results in complete facial rejuvenation.

The suitable peels will be selected by our skin health practitioner according to your skin concerns, expectations and skin condition.


What can I expect after a Chemical peel?

While some skin flaking may occur following treatment, a chemical peel leaves the skin immediately more hydrated, oxygenised and illuminated. In reducing enlarged pores and improving any textural irregularities, chemical peels help even out skin tone and smooth the skin’s surface. By shedding the skin’s upper layers, peels assist in reducing the appearance of blemishes, sunspots and scarring.


How many treatments are necessary to achieve optimal results?

During your initial consultation you will be recommended a treatment plan. Usually a course of treatment is between 3-6 treatments, depending on your skin type, skin condition and the goal you are wishing to achieve. If you just want to refresh your skin then a single treatment may be suitable.
