Skin Peel Treatments at dermalclinic® Edinburgh.
There are thousands of skin conditions and most are responsive to treatment. The most common conditions that we are presented with are acne, hyperpigmentation due to excessive sun, fine lines, and tired looking skin.
At dermalclinic® all of these can be treated with a skin peel and/or a combination of a peel and another treatment such Genuine DermaRoller or Microdermabrasion. You will be advised on the most suitable treatment for your concerns at a consultation.
Obagi Blue Peel Radiance – £100
Ideal for any skin type needing help to lift off the dead surface skin cells and speed up cellular turnover. A unique blend of salicylic and glycolic acid. A great treatment to have prior to a night out or special occasion for an instant glow and wow factor. Expect light peeling for 3-5 days, 24 hours after your peel.
Laser Skin Peel – £250
This peel uses Laser to target sun damage and removes surface layers of old damaged skin. A patch test two weeks prior to treatment is required. This peel uses the Nd Yag Laser to target sun damage and removes surface layers of old damaged skin. The use of this laser skin peel is very effective at reducing skin congestion such as milia. You will experience a ‘cracking sound’ as the laser works over the skin. Your skin will appear red after the treatment, but by the next day this will have reduced. Dry skin with some peeling should be expected and this usually lasts about 4-5 days. For patients having ‘sun spots’ or ‘liver spots’ removed from the back of their hands, the treated area will appear darker for about a 7-10 days and then fade away. Total clearance of these spots could take up to 4 sessions, but most disappear after just 1 treatment. A patch test two weeks prior to treatment is required (£25).
Deep Skin Peel – £350
Suitable for those looking for a more extreme peel, which will affect deeper layers of the skin. This is the strongest skin peel and you should expect peeling for a few days after your treatment. Out with the old and in with the new!
Patients who are using Vitamin A acid should not have this peel. Not to be used during pregnancy and sun exposure should be avoided for at least one month after treatment and even then use a high SPF. Do not wear perfume before or after the treatment.
