Chemical Exfoliation

The most superficial layer of your skin is dead and dry and often contains damaged cells. This layer may also contain a large number of pigment cells if you suffer from pigmented patches or areas of discolouration or hyperpigmentation. This is especially common in skin of colour, such as South Asian skin.

Chemical exfoliation, also known as Chemical peels, can be used to help the natural exfoliation process therefore these dead, dry and pigmented cells will flake away, exposing your healthy, glowing skin cells.

How does this work?

We shed 30-40,000 dead skin cells daily, and chemical exfoliation accelerates this. Multiple agents encourage dead skin cells’ top layer to flake away. These dead cells contain fine lines, pigmentation, scarring and blocked acne pores.

Exfoliation will reveal healthier, glowing new skin cells. The skin’s ability to replace lost dead skin cells by producing better-quality skin cells accelerates exfoliation.

Types of Chemical Peels


Superficial chemical peels

Superficial chemical peels work out the outer layer of the skin and can improve the brightness and glow of the skin. A beauty therapist can implement these treatments before an event. You may notice mild dry skin cells flaking away following this treatment.


Medium chemical peels

Medium chemical peels penetrate to the mid-dermis of the skin, i.e. deeper than superficial chemical peels and work well to combat acne, scarring, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles within these layers of the skin up to the most superficial layer. A medical professional must carry out this treatment as if this system is implemented improperly, long-term severe side effects can occur. Mild-moderate skin dryness and flaking are likely; however, this often resolves in 2-4 days.


Deep chemical peels

Deep chemical peels affect the deeper aspect of the dermis, and they work very well for moderate-severe wrinkles, acne, scarring and pigmentation. Medical practitioners can only carry out this treatment as they can bring about permanent damage if used inappropriately.


After Chemical Peels

After this treatment, moderate-severe exfoliation and skin peeling may be noted and resolved within 14 days. Dr Natasha Verma will use a customised combination of solutions and apply these to your skin to reduce your pigmentation and skin tone. These solutions have been medically and clinically proven to help the exfoliation of dead skin cells by dissolving the bonds that hold them in place. This will allow the healthy skin cells below to receive oxygen and all the nutrients your skincare products provide.

Frequently Asked Questions

At what age do I need to start having Chemical peels?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the best age to start having chemical peels depends on your skin concerns and goals. However, in general, chemical peels can be a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of your skin at any age. If you are in your 20s or 30s and want to address early signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, a superficial chemical peel may be a good option. Superficial chemical peels use a mild solution to exfoliate the top layer of skin, revealing smoother, brighter skin underneath.

Which peel is best for pigmentation?

The best chemical peel for pigmentation depends on the pigmentation's severity and your skin type. For mild pigmentation, a superficial chemical peel may be sufficient. A medium-depth or deep chemical peel may be necessary for moderate to severe pigmentation.

Do Chemical peels hurt?

The level of pain you experience during a chemical peel will depend on the type of peel you receive and your pain tolerance. Superficial chemical peels, which only remove the outermost layer of skin, typically cause a mild tingling or burning sensation. Medium chemical peels penetrate deeper into the skin and can cause more pain, which may be described as a stinging, throbbing, or burning sensation. Deep chemical peels, which remove the entire epidermis and part of the dermis, are the most painful type of peel.

How many chemical peels do I need for hyperpigmentation?

The number of chemical peels you need for hyperpigmentation will depend on the severity of your hyperpigmentation and the type of peel you receive. For mild hyperpigmentation, a single chemical peel may be sufficient. You may need multiple chemical peels spaced several weeks apart for moderate to severe hyperpigmentation. It is essential to talk to your doctor about how many chemical peels you need to achieve your desired results. They can help you choose the right type of peel and the number of treatments that are right for you.
