Our AesthetiCare peel treatments harness the deeply exfoliating properties of glycolic acid to un-clog pores, reduce inflammation and regulate excessive oil production thus removing dead and damaged skin cells and stimulating the renewal of healthy new cells beneath the surface the surface of the skin. Following treatment, open pores, blemishes, acne, pigmentation and fine lines are all visibly reduced and skin is left glowing, tightened and radiant.
What’s the difference between the AesthetiCare Exfoliating Peels you offer?
Coppergate Clinic offers a range of AesthetiCare exfoliating peels containing varying concentrations of active ingredient, glycolic acid. To find the perfect level or course combination of peels for you, we always conduct a thorough consultation, analysis and patch test to select the solution to suit your skin type, needs and lifestyle. As part of this consultation process you will also be advised of any preparation that may be necessary to condition your skin ahead of your peel treatment.
How are AesthetiCare Peels carried out?
Following a thorough consultation and appropriate pre-treatment skin preparation, all glycolic skin peel treatments begin with a thorough cleanse of the skin before our Aesthetic Therapist passes the skin peel solution over the treatment area. Following the procedure aftercare products are supplied to promote healing. Written aftercare advice will be provided along with recommended homecare products to ensure the best possible results are obtained.
What results should I expect?
After one exfoliating peel treatment, overall skin tone and complexion will appear smoother, fresher and more radiant. After time, there will be a visible reduction in break outs, blemishes and signs of ageing. Depending on the severity of skin conditions to be addressed, multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results. A series of 6 glycolic peel treatments taken at 2 week intervals will usually allow for optimal results. Provided the skin is maintained with good quality skin care products as recommended at initial consultation, skin improvement following treatment will be long-lasting.*

How do the treatments feel?
AesthetiCare Peels are completely safe and non-invasive.

Is there any downtime?
Following treatment, glycolic peels generally have little-to-no downtime. Immediately after treatment your skin may feel warm, red and tight however side effects usually subside in a day or two with little more than light flaking of skin. Following each procedure aftercare products are supplied to promote healing.
