A professional peel acts as a supercharged exfoliator, removing layers of dead skin to uncover the smooth, fresh skin underneath.

This new skin is less wrinkled and more evenly coloured, so peels are very effective at treating sun damage, pigmentation, acne scarring, lines and wrinkles.

Peels are available in different strengths, ranging from the light to the heavy. Lighter peels use ingredients like AHAs, requiring no downtime, while deeper peels may be performed under light sedation and require up to one week off work.

However, regardless of the strength of the peel, the overall effect is a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.

Dr Hunt can discuss your options in a personal consultation, including whether other non-surgical options may be more suitable.
