Chemical peels in Rickmansworth


Chemical peels are popular skin treatments that aim to noticeably improve the look and feel
of the skin. They are usually used on the face, but most peels can also be used on the neck,
decolletage and hands. During the treatment a chemical solution is applied to the skin in
layers, and works to remove dead skin cells in order to stimulate the regeneration of healthy
new ones. The type of peel we recommend, and the number of layers applied will depend on
your concerns and the depth of peel required to achieve your expected results.

At Dr Grace Kelly Aesthetic Skin Clinic we offer a range of light to medium peels, including:

Obagi Blue Radiance Peel

This particular peel is noted for the way it transforms the skin, making it one of the most
frequently requested peels. The chemical solution contains salicylic acid, an active skincare
ingredient that softens and exfoliates the skin. By doing this, the peel can help to maintain
clear pores, as well as regulating the production of sebum (the oil that is produced by the
skin). For this reason, Obagi Blue Radiance Peel is great for those with skin that is prone to
breakouts of spots as it helps to reduce the elements that lead to their formation. Having
said this, the Obagi Blue Radiance Peel is effective at rejuvenating the complexion,
addressing many common concerns, such as: fine lines, dull skin, oily skin, and enlarged
pores. Benefits include:

● Glowing results within 7 days
● Suitable for almost all skin types
● Reduces pigmentation and other skin blemishes
● 30 minute treatment
● Minimal downtime

After 5-7 days of having the peel, the top layers of skin will start to shed. This will be a subtle
process that may not be too visible to others. When the new layer of skin is revealed so too
will a brighter, fresher complexion.

ZO Stimulator Peel

Also known as ‘The Red Carpet Facial’, the ZO Stimulator Peel is gentle yet powerful. It
contains a variety of active ingredients, including a combination of lactic, citric and salicylic
acids which are key to producing a bright, refreshed appearance. The fusion of the acids,
along with the specific concentrations of the other ingredients used, enables efficient skin
exfoliation in addition to the stimulation of new collagen and elastin. At Dr Grace Kelly
Aesthetic Skin Clinic we often use the ZO Stimulator Peel as a safe and effective anti-ageing
treatment as the results can help to: firm the skin, soften the appearance of lines, reduce the
appearance of prominent wrinkles, reduce the visible effects of sun damage and reduce
blemishes. Benefits include:

● Improved skin texture and tone
● Softer lines and wrinkles
● Firmer, fuller skin
● Reduced pore size
● No downtime
● Rapid results

This peel is a light peel that removes the superficial layers of the skin to reveal a healthy
complexion that is clearer, brighter and smoother.

ZO 3 Step Peel

The ZO 3 Step Peel is a medium depth peel that is great for improving the health of the skin
and rejuvenating the appearance. As it works to remove the top and middle layers of the
skin, it is effective at reducing a number of common skin concerns, including: sun damage,
hyperpigmentation (including post inflammatory pigmentation), lines and wrinkles, dull skin,
uneven texture, uneven tone and mild skin laxity.

As the name suggests, the ZO 3 Step Peel is carried out in stages:

Step 1 – a solution containing a blend of salicylic acid, trichloroacetic acid and lactic acid is
applied to the skin which will help to reduce inflammation and increase hydration.

Step 2 – an application of stimulating retinol creme follows the peel solution which works at a
deep level to stimulate collagen and cellular function. Retinol will also help firm and smooth
the skin.

Step 3 – Calming Creme Post Procedure Skin Relief completes the ZO 3 Step Peel, soothing
the skin and locking in moisture.

It’s normal for the skin to become a little yellow in tone after this treatment which will
disappear the next day, after washing. The peeling stage happens within 2 days of the peel,
working to reveal a radiant, clear, youthful complexion.

Each of these peels use Obagi Medical and ZO Skin Health (by Obagi) products. This
makes them compatible for use alongside other skincare products in these ranges (which
are available at Dr Grace Kelly Aesthetic Skin Clinic). Using Obagi Medical and ZO Skin
Health products as part of your daily skincare routine will help to maintain and support the
results of each of these chemical peels. To find out which chemical peels, and Obagi / ZO
Skin Health products will benefit your skin, contact Dr Grace Kelly today.
