Mesoesthetic Skin Peels

Skinnotion offers a range of skin peels to suit all ages and concerns. When it comes to enlarged pores, our Mesoestetic chemical peel treatments can be used to reduce excessive oil and congestion leading to blocked pores, as well as stimulate collagen which will help tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of enlarged pores.

What Are Chemical Peels?

There are many varieties of chemical peels, all comprising different ingredients, differing strengths, and catering to different skin concerns. During your peel treatment, a chemical solution containing chemical exfoliating ingredients like Phenol, Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or Alpha or Beta Hydroxy Acids (AHA or BHA) is applied to the skin. Different types of acids have different responses in the skin. When targeting pores, generally ingredients which target pore blockages and enhance collagen production are selected. Mild chemical peels can also be used to enhance the results of other cosmetic procedures you may be using to address enlarged pores, as the removal of the external dead skin layers allows for a deeper penetration of topical agents and energy-based devices.

Am I Suited To Chemical Peels?

Our wide selection of Mesoestetic peels cater to a broad range of skin types and concerns, whether you are new to skincare or an advanced user of skincare products and clinical treatments. In additional to enlarged pores, our Mesoestetic peels can cater to:

Our experienced Skinnotion nurses will work closely with you to create a skin treatment regime and peel recommendations that suit your needs and that you feel comfortable with.

Any pre-treatment preparation of the skin will depend on the type of peel you receive. If you have received little to no chemical peels before, you won’t need to prepare for your visit, as we will always begin with a very mild peel so as not to aggravate or sensitise the skin. Peels require a gentle approach, with regular visits during which the strength of the peel progresses with time. As the strength and type of skin peel advanced from introductory to advanced, you will need to be caring for your skin with specific skincare products at home. This reduces the risks of adverse reactions, such as post- inflammatory hyperpigmentation, after a strong peel. We always recommend avoiding sun exposure, waxing, hair removal, laser or IPL treatments, or any other sensitising service within 7 days of a peel. Also avoid use of vitamin A products or exfoliants 48 hours prior.

What Do I Do Before A Skin Peel?

Are Chemical Peels Painful?

Introductory peels are mild, and never painful. You may experience some tingling or itching as your skin pH changes – this is very normal. Other than this temporary sensation, there should be no discomfort. Stronger and more advanced peel solutions may feel hot and sometimes uncomfortable while they are on the skin, depending on their ingredients and desired outcomes. This will subside after its removal. It should be noted that advanced chemical peels will be required to achieve any significant change in the appearance of pores, and that even with multiple treatments, pores can never be completely reduced.

What Happens After A Skin Peel?

This will again depend on the type of peel. Very mild peels typically have no lasting effects on the skin. Some may experience some mild warmth and pinkness on the skin for a matter of minutes or hours. Advanced peels may remain red and sensitised for several days, and include some sloughing or shedding of the skin around 5-10 days post-peel. It’s always a good idea to pre-plan your peel treatments around your work and social commitments to ensure your skin has completed its healing phase before any special occasions. It is imperative to wear broad spectrum SPF50+ protection daily after your peel. Makeup and strenuous exercise should be avoided for 24 hours, and active, exfoliating skincare products avoided for 3-14 days afterwards depending on the peel type.
