Am I Best Suited To A Superficial Or Medium-Depth Chemical Peel?
Chemical Peels haven’t always had a good reputation. Many associate the procedure with the side effects of a painful dose of sunburn, while others may have been put off by inaccurate representations of post-procedure images on the television (think Samantha Jones in Sex And The City). However, celebrity endorsement coupled with detailed descriptions of the exact Skin Peel process at our digital fingertips has resulted in a rise in treatments over the last decade. This trend is only set to continue.
Chemical Peels cause intentional damage to the skin, stimulating the production of new and healthy tissue. How much skin is removed depends on the depth of peel you choose. Superficial, medium and deep peels are determined by a product’s ingredients and their concentrations. Each Chemical Peel varies in its purpose, with some targeting signs of ageing and others seeking to reduce issues with acne or pigmentation.
Superficial Chemical Peels At North West Aesthetics
Superficial Chemical Peels remove the outermost layer of the skin known as the epidermis. Recovery times for these are shorter than other types of peel as typical solutions do not penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. Patients are not required to take time off work, however, some would prefer to during the initial peeling stage.

Medium-Depth Chemical Peels At North West Aesthetics
Medium-depth Chemical Peels penetrate through the epidermis and into the papillary dermis layer of the skin. They lead to stronger regenerative changes within the tissue, however, require more downtime.
Perfect Peel – £299
The Perfect Peel is the first medical-grade Chemical Peel to contain glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that assists tissue repair and boosts immune system function. This combined with 5 super-acids and a host of vitamins and minerals leads to accelerated cell turnover and unrivalled anti-ageing benefits. After the peeling subsides, skin appears nourished, brighter and glowing.
Obagi® Blue Peel – Price subject to consultation
The Obagi® Blue Peel helps to eliminate blemishes, pigmentation and sun damage, while improving the overall tightness and texture of the skin. The peel uses trichloroacetic acid (TCA) for slow penetration into the dermis. The solution is applied in layers, allowing your practitioner to target precise areas at specific depths. The amount of product used depends on your unique skin concerns, meaning a consultation is required to determine the exact price of your treatment.
