A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve skin texture and tone. An acid is applied to the skin to temporarily lower the skin’s pH levels, which loosens the connections between dead skin cells, exfoliating the skin and stimulating new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion below.

Chemical Peel Treatment Expectations
Beautiful skin doesn’t happen overnight, and treatments take time to show results. A single chemical peel can provide the immediate effect of bright and radiant skin; however, more significant results for treatment of textural issues, fine lines and inflamed acne could take up to eight weeks.
It is also vital to use our recommended professional homecare products consistently and as directed, in order to achieve optimal results. It’s not just skincare - it’s self care!
Most of the peels that we use at Sur Medispa are of a light-to-medium depth, and are renowned for their excellent results and safety profile. We believe in repeated treatments for progressive and gradual results, to avoid side-effects and downtime associated with deeper peels.
Chemical peels work by deeply exfoliating the surface layers of the skin, forcing your body to quickly replenish it with new cells. When peels are performed regularly, the skin gets used to this process and begins to rejuvenate itself in the way that younger skin does. To be sure that the body doesn’t react to this exfoliation as it would to trauma, which can lead to pigment changes, exfoliation must be introduced gradually giving the skin time to adjust.
We do however, have options for more aggressive peels which do come with downtime - please speak to our Sur Medispa skincare expert if this is something you are interested in, to see if these are suitable for you and your skin goals.
Pre-treatment products precondition the skin, accelerate results and minimise complication. Post-treatment products minimise complications, heal and soothe the skin, then maintain the results. This three-step process is all aimed at you achieving a smooth, glowing complexion in safety and comfort, with lasting and beautiful results.
