What is The Perfect Peel?
The Perfect Peel is a revolutionary peel that will transform your skin into looking younger, healthier and clearer in just one week. The Perfect Peel can be used on all skin types and requires no pre-peel skin preparation. The process takes less than 15 minutes and is virtually pain-free. It can be performed only by a trained medical practitioner.
What makes the Perfect Peel different?
The Perfect Peel founds itself on a key anti-ageing ingredient never before used in a peel: Glutathione.
It contains 5 acids blended with vitamins, minerals and Glutathione.
The Perfect Peel Ingredients:
- Trichloracetic Acid (TCA)
- Salicylic Acid
- Retinoic Acid
- Kojic Acid
- Vitamin C
Glutathione is the ultimate antioxidant, penetrating deep into the cellular level of the skin to fight oxidant damage and is the anti-ageing answer to premature wrinkling. Our bodies naturally produce glutathione but as we age, our levels deplete due to sun exposure, air pollutants, environmental stress and the ageing process itself. Evidence shows Glutathione reverses melanin’s metabolism, lightening dark pigmentations.
Glutathione is a very simple molecule which we produce naturally all the time in our bodies. It is derived from glycine, glutamic acid and cystine and is extremely beneficial to us. Glutathione is used as an alternative to hydroquinone, as it appears to behave in a similar way, if not better. However it does not have all the potential side effects that can occur with hydroquinone.
Glutathione protects the cells in our body from harmful toxins. It works by clearing the body of free radicals and toxins that can lead to skin problems like hyperpigmentation and melasma, as well as more common concerns like sun or age spots. Through its ability to protect our cells from those same free radicals, skin lightening is a side effect.
Kojic acid is a powerful lightening agent and proven to increase collagen and elastin production, resulting in skin that is brighter and tighter.
TCA, Phenol and Retinoic Acid reduce wrinkles and correct pigment problems.
Salicylic Acid exfoliates the skin and reduces inflammation.
Alone the ingredients are powerful, but in combination, they produce results that are astonishing.

What do I expect during a Peel Treatment?
The skin is first degreased using alcohol or acetone. The Perfect Peel is then applied and left on the skin for 6-8 hours, it is then washed off, or left on the skin overnight.
Your specialist will give you an individual home treatment pack. This pack contains retinol wipes and a Vitamin C moisturiser to assist the peeling process and enhance your results.
For ‘normal’ skin you may consider a Perfect Peel treatment 2-3 times a year. For more stubborn conditions you may require The Perfect Peel at monthly intervals to achieve the results you require. A series of 2-3 treatments applied once every 4 weeks will allow for optimal results for more severe skin conditions such as Melasma and active acne.
We do not recommend the Perfect Peel if you are:
Pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Allergic to aspirin.
Have active herpes (cold sores) or infected lesions.
Have used Roaccutane 3 months prior to treatment
Are there any side effects from the Peel?
You may feel a slight stinging or tingling sensation during the application of the peel. This will subside after just a few seconds as the area numbs a little. We can apply a cooling fan to aid your comfort.
Expect some redness post-treatment, like a sunburn, which is temporary and normal, and the skin may also be slightly swollen and may itch for a few days following treatment. Your skin will slough off in thin sheets of epidermal skin that begins around day three and generally is completed by day six or seven. The use of the at-home products and moisturisers will help with skin hydration.
Things to consider after treatment
You can apply make-up 8 hours after treatment.
Your skin will feel sensitive for about a week.
You Must Avoid Sun Exposure.
Your medical practitioner will discuss these potential side effects in a consultation.
