A chemical face peel is a medical-grade facial treatment that uses a combination of specially tailored ingredients to remove the surface layer of dead skin cells, in order to treat a variety of concerns and achieve clearer, brighter skin. By removing these top skin cells from the dermis, along with oils and other impurities, the treatment reveals a healthy layer of skin beneath. Both men and women may seek chemical peels to revive and invigorate their complexion. The treatment can address many common skin problems, such as wrinkles, blemishes, and uneven skin tone.
At Begone Skin & Body, we utilise Professional Chemical Peels by Medik8, and offer specialised peels for every skin type or concern. Medik8 peels are backed by constant research and product innovation, which go hand in hand with their CSA philosophy.
We customise each Medik8 chemical face peel to the patient, based on which skin concerns they wish to address. Book your appointment today to receive a beautifying facial peel treatment at Begone Skin & Body.
How chemical peels work
Since each treatment is custom-designed for the person, your facial peel will target your concerns and needs. Different types of peels can achieve different outcomes, based on your skin condition and the recommendations of your clinician. There are three general types:
- Light peels – to clear and rejuvenate the outer layer
- Medium peels – to remove cells from the epidermis
- Deep peels – to penetrate the skin and remove damaged cells
Each type of peel may be ideal for different patients. For example, a medium peel can treat mild to moderate signs of ageing, whereas a deep peel treats deeper wrinkles, scars, and skin growths. When performed by a licenced professional, chemical peels are very low-risk and provide excellent results.
Your consultation at Begone Skin & Body
At Begone Skin & Body, we provide tailored treatment and care to each patient. In order to recommend the best type of chemical face peel for you, we must first establish what your concerns are, and what outcomes you wish to attain. When speaking with us prior to your treatment, you should bring up any relevant medical issues or skin conditions, as well as any medicine you are taking. This information will help us tailor our process to your skin requirements and health. You can also discuss whether you are seeking a light peel to exfoliate and refresh your skin, or a deeper peel treatment to address a specific skin issue. Once we have discussed these factors, your clinician can begin to outline a plan for your chemical face peel treatment.

During your procedure, your clinician will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible. The details may vary depending on the type of peel you are undergoing. For example, both light peels and medium peels can take around 20 minutes to complete. Whereas, a deep skin peel may be performed in multiple 15-minute portions.
Your clinician will apply the chemical solution to your face, which will begin to penetrate the top layers of your skin. You might feel a tingling sensation, but patients generally do not find this uncomfortable. In the case of a deep peel, your treated skin may turn white as the treatment begins to take effect.
Chemical peels aftercare
Most patients do not require much recovery time. In the days following your treatment, dead skin cells will shed naturally as your skin begins to regenerate, which may cause your skin to slightly peel or flake. It is important to avoid picking at your skin, as this can impede the healing process. We may give you specific instructions to follow in order to get the best results possible. These may include:
- Keep your face clean and moisturised
- Apply sunscreen with a high SPF
- Drink plenty of water
- Avoid strenuous exercise
- Do not exfoliate your skin
- Avoid saunas and steam rooms
Risks and complications
If you have had a medium or deep chemical peel, you might experience some temporary blotchiness and longer-lasting swelling and redness. These side effects should go away on their own, as long as you take care of your healing skin and follow your aftercare guidelines. In very rare cases, chemical peels can lead to infections, breakouts, and changes in skin colour. However, as long as you choose a reputable and qualified clinic when seeking a chemical face peel, long-lasting adverse effects are very uncommon.
