Chemical peel treatments have been around for a long time, and things have changed a lot since then. Chemical peeling treatments are now not only safe, but also an effective way to give your skin a much needed rejuvenation.
At VIDASKIN Peel Bar, we have carefully selected only the most reputable and well blended peels for our patients. They are usually a combination of different acids, peptides and nutrients for the skin, maximising their results, whilst minimising side effects. How a peel works is through removing the outer layers of damaged skin to reveal a clearer, fresher and brighter skin surface. Far from being damaging and aggressive, astute chemical peeling actually serves to support and rebuild the skin from deep within.
All of our peels are done by, or supervised by our Medical Director. We have more than 10 different concoctions, to suit and treat almost every skin type and concerns. Most chemical peeling treatments take between 30 to 75 minutes to complete. Treatments range in strength, downtime, and level of comfort and can be tailored to suit each individual need.

What is a Skin Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel or skin peel is a non invasive skin resurfacing procedure that can improve the skin quality and appearance of the skin on the face, neck and/or hands.
This treatment uses chemical solution to exfoliate the top layers of the dead skin cells to allow new skin to regrow. Giving the new and regenerated skin a much smoother feel and radiant glow.
Three basic types of chemical peels ranges as such :
- Superficial or lunchtime peel: The chemical peel is used to penetrate only the outer layer of skin to gently exfoliate it. The treatment is used to improve the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin as well as to refresh the face, neck, chest or hands.
- Medium peel: The medium peel is used to penetrate the outer and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment is used to improve age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and moderate skin discoloration. It also can be used to smooth rough skin and treat some precancerous skin growths, i.e. actinic keratosis.
- Deep peel: Trichloroacetic acid or phenol is applied to deeply penetrate the middle layer of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment removes moderate lines, age spots, freckles and shallow scars. Patients will see a dramatic improvement in skin appearance. The procedure is used on the face and only can be performed once.
Are There Benefits To Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are generally effective in treating a range of skin conditions because the desired depth of the damage is entirely dependent upon the doctor after assessing the skin condition to be treated.
If performed by an experienced doctor, the treated skin will be visibly brighter, resulting in a more youthful complexion with less visible appearance of pigmentation.
Chemical Peels At VIDASKIN
Unlike traditional chemical peels that work by damaging the surface skin to get to the deeper, newer skin underneath, our signature chemical peels help to reverse the visible effects of damage in two ways. First, they power away dull, dead cells to illuminate the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, clogged pores and blemishes. Then, they support collagen for firmer-looking skin over time. Dr. Vicki will share which chemical peel will best target your skin’s individual needs.
How Will I Know Which Chemical Peel Will Be Suitable?
At VIDASKIN Clinic we always source only the highest-grade cosmeceutical range of peels and post-care products to ensure you always only get the best. Before pairing a Chemical peel for you, we will first carry out an indepth skin analysis by leveraging on the VISIA® system.
The VISIA® Complexion Analysis system makes it possible to customize your skin care program and formulations for your specific complexion, as well as to actively monitor and optimize these formulations over time. See clinically accurate improvements in your skin when you journey with us.
How VISIA® Complexion Analysis Works
How does the VISIA® complexion analysis work? We use multispectral photos of different wavelengths, including infrared light, to identify visible and invisible changes in the skin that may indicate skin issues and disease. This non-invasive thermal imaging can identify the overall condition of your skin and may even lead to an early diagnosis of skin cancer.
The TruSkin Age™ system evaluates your skin based on the presence of:
- Sun damage just below the skin surface
- Visible spots
- Uneven skin texture (raises or depressions in the skin)
- Enlarged pores
- Pigmentation or discoloration under the skin
- Areas of possible spider veins
- Signs of bacteria within pores, can lead to acne and skin blemishes
Only Trusted & Proven Medical Grade Chemical Peels Used
The skin peels we use uses a patented technology that does not immediately damage the surface of the skin. Acid activity starts when the chemical is fully absorbed by the skin, and acid protons are activated in a controlled manner as they exert their full effects on different layers of the skin. With less immediate damage done on the skin surface, Skin Peel Renewal is a remarkable chemical peel treatment that causes less surface trauma without compromising on the efficacy of the treatment.
The Image peel series treats wrinkles, blemishes and uneven pigmentation to reveal improved skin texture, more clarity and a more even tone. All Image peels are formulated in aloe vera-based gel to protect the skin. It's non-comedogenic, and has no chemical preservatives, artificial colors/dye or animal-derived ingredients. It is also paraben and petrochemical free. Fragrances are composed of 100% Essential oils.
