What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a skin treatment in which a solution is applied to the body that
removes dead skin cells and will stimulate the growth of new cells. The aim is to
improve the appearance of your skin by evening out skin tone and helping with
scarring, smoothing wrinkles and improving pigmentation caused by sun
damage. A Chemical peel Taunton can be booked only with a skin consultation.
What is the process of a Chemical Peel Treatment?
All clients are seen for a thorough consultation and skin analysis to check suitability for treatment and ensure you have a personalised treatment plan for your skin needs and concerns. The very best results are achieved when clients have a professional chemical peel treatment plan along with appropriate home care products as these will work in synergy together to improve the health and beauty of your skin.
You will be given detailed pre and post care instructions to ensure you gain optimal results from your chemical peel treatment.
During the chemical peel Taunton treatment appointment your skin will be cleansed and your treatment is hyper-customised with pre-treatment masks and post treatment serums.
What happens after a Chemical Peel Treatment?
AlumierMD® chemical peel treatments have very little to no downtime but create dramatic results.
For the first 24 hours following your treatment you may experience redness, slight swelling, itchiness or sensitivity. Over 3-5 days your skin may feel tight, temporarily feel dry or have some mild flaking or skin peeling. The amount of peeling does not reflect the efficacy of your treatment.
Following treatment, you will be asked to avoid excessive heat, makeup, self tan products, direct sun exposure, ice or ice water on the treated area for the rest of the day.
Saunas, hot tubs, excessively hot showers, aerobic exercise and swimming should be avoided for 2 days. If you use AHA/BHA skin care you should avoid the use of this for 3-5 days.
You will be given a post procedure kit which includes a cleanser, recovery balm and SPF which is essential to use for 5-7 days following your chemical peel.
You will start to notice the results of your chemical peel on day 6 and you will notice a fresh, more radiant appearance to your skin.
Beautiful skin doesn’t happen overnight. A single chemical peel can provide the immediate effect of bright and radiant skin. However, more significant results in treating textural issues, fine lines and inflamed acne take time.
Frequently Asked Questions
Unlike mechanical exfoliation which physically smooths and lifts dead skin cells off the skin, chemical exfoliants found in chemical peels lower the pH of the skin towards acidic. This acidic environment dissolves specific skin components. Our superficial chemical peels mainly dissolve desmosomes (the keratin, Velcro-like bonds) within the upper epidermis that keep dead skin cells attached to the face and body. This, in turn, triggers replenishment of new skin cells in the lower layers leading to skin rejuvenation. These released skin cells don’t leave the skin right away but later ‘peel away’ in the days that follow. The deeper the exfoliation, the more ‘peeling’ is likely. Here at The Skin Care Clinic we used Alumier MD chemical peels which are superficial to medium in depth. They help to thicken the epidermis, increase dermal volume, even skin tone and stimulate collagen. The result is a smoother and more radiant complexion.

Everybody can experience different levels of sensation during a chemical peel. When the chemical peel is applied you may feel a tingle or slight stinging feeling to the skin, some people may not notice any sensation at all. During your treatment we will continue to check your ‘tingle’ level on a scale of 1-10, if you reach a level higher than a 6, it indicates an end point to your treatment.
Our AlumierMD chemical peels are superficial to medium chemical peels and some people may not notice any peeling or shedding of the skin but it is possible to experience mild flaking or shedding. Most people notice a tightness and dryness to their skin following a chemical peel rather than ‘peeling’. The level of peeling does not determine the efficacy of a chemical peel.
Chemical peels can be done to most body areas, not just the facial area. These include chest, back, arms.
