Skin Resurfacing Chemical Peel
Chemical peels can make skin look more youthful and give a fresher appearance, this is achieved by increasing the regeneration of your skin using special solutions applied to the face provided by our partner pHformula.
What Is Skin Resurfacing?
The resurfacing treatments are specifically designed to pass through the top layer of the skin and target the deeper layer therefore creating skin rejuvenation rather than just killing the top layer of skin (like traditional skin peels). Most of the pHformula skin resurfacing chemical peel products are not timed, neutralised or removed from the skin. Instead they are self-neutralising and left on the skin.
A combination of natural acids, vitamins and patented technology targets your skin concerns with minimal downtime and minimal irritation.
The action of pHformula is totally different from that of conventional peelings. Peels mainly cause skin exfoliation, whereas with pHformula controlled resurfacing actively promotes the acceleration of cell regeneration in the different skin layers, while reducing skin trauma and superficial irritation.
Developed as a dermatological skin resurfacing system, pHformula successfully treats skin disorders like premature ageing, hyper-pigmentation, acne and chronic redness.
All of our Chemical Peels are applied by a GMC registered Doctor as with all treatments at the Cosmetics Doctor Norwich clinic. See our results gallery here.
Peels and Home Care Products are available for a number of skin types and conditions including:
- Ageing Skin
- Age Spots
- Complete Skin Restoration
