What is a chemical peel?
A skin peel also known as a chemical peel is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments to help improve skin tone and texture.
They do this by removing dead skin cells and encouraging new and healthy skin cells to grow in their place. They come in different strengths, which we can tailor to treat common skin complaints on the face and neck.
Chemical peels are safe when you choose a trusted skin care clinic with trained professionals. You should always consult with a doctor or dermatologist before having treatment. This is so they can make sure you are suitable for skin peels and find the right one that will work best for you and your skin.
What are the main benefits of skin peels at our Rickmansworth clinic?
Chemical peels are great for giving you more radiant skin. They also help to target and treat a number of skin conditions, which include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles for younger skin
- Discoloured skin from sun damage
- Hyperpigmentation and age spots
- Mild acne scarring
- Breakouts and congested skin
- Rejuvenating a tired complexion
- Promoting brighter and healthier-looking skin
How do chemical peels remove dead skin cells?
Chemical peels work by applying a chemical solution to the skin, which peels away the top layer of your skin.
Chemical peels range from light to strong and include different active ingredients:
- Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) – such as glycolic acid or lactic acid
- Beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) like salicylic acid
The chemical solution remains on your skin for a set amount of time. This allows it to penetrate the deeper layers of your skin. As a result, it removes dead skin cells and helps stimulate collagen production. Over time, the new collagen will help to improve skin elasticity and strength.
Each treatment takes around 30 – 60 minutes to complete depending on your skin condition and the level of skin peel you have.
What results can I expect from a chemical skin peel?
After your skin peel, treatment you will start to notice your skin looking smoother and more radiant. However, it can take a few weeks or months for the final results to show. This will depend on the type of chemical peel you have.
If you are having a light peel to refresh your skin, we normally recommend a course of three once a month.
If you are treating scarring, an uneven skin tone or skin discolouration, you will need a medium or deep peel. Your practitioner will discuss how many treatments you will need to achieve the desired results. This is typically a course of 3-6 treatments.
Are there any side effects with chemical skin peels?
This will all depend on the strength of the chemical peel you have. Generally, you may experience redness and some slight swelling after your treatment.
In the first few days after your peel, your skin may also flake. This should last no longer than a week. Your practitioner will talk you through how to look after your skin in the days and weeks following your peel.
Skin peel aftercare
After you have a chemical peel, your skin will be more vulnerable and sensitive. During this time, we encourage you to take extra care of your skin.

Rickmansworth is a small town located in Hertfordshire, England. It has a rich history and lots of attractions that make it an ideal place to settle down or visit.
It lies just 20 miles northwest of central London. This makes it close enough to the capital to commute, while still being far enough away to enjoy the quietness of living in a small town.
One notable feature of Rickmansworth is its picturesque waterways. The town sits on the banks of three rivers: the Colne, Chess, and Gade. These rivers not only add to its natural beauty but also provide opportunities for walks along their scenic paths.
