What are Chemical Skin Peels? 

Skin peels are a skin-resurfacing method that use chemicals like Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) to exfoliate the skin.

Skin peels chemically exfoliate and remove the dull dead skin cells that can build up on the outer layers of our skin. This leaves the skin looking brighter fresher and, with a course of treatments, clients can expect to see a reduction in acne breakouts, fine lines and wrinkles and hydration levels are improved.


Peels can range from very superficial in strength to superficial, medium and deep. Medium-deep peels are completed by healthcare professionals only.


Due to the effects of skin peels, they are rapidly growing in popularity, proving them to be a profitable qualification to have.
