The Perfect Peel – The Barefaced Facts

Everyone wants smooth, firm and blemishless skin and chemical skin peels are a great way to achieve this. But not all skin peels are created equal – The Perfect Peel is a cut above the rest!

More than just a simple chemical peel, it offers you the smooth, clear skin that you’d expect from a medium depth peel – with an added kick of anti-ageing wonderfullness!

But what is it? Is it really as good as it sounds? In this blog post we give you all the barefaced facts you need to decide if it’s for you! 

The Perfect Peel Before and After

What Is The Perfect Peel?

The Perfect Peel is a chemical skin peel treatment that offers you smoother, firmer and clearer skin with the added benefit of powerful anti-ageing ingredients.

There are several types of chemical peels ranging in strength from mildly superficial to deeply resurfacing.

A light chemical peel removes the epidermis (the outer layer of your skin). It’s used to treat uneven skin tone, fine wrinkles, acne and dryness.

A medium chemical peel removes skin cells from the epidermis as well as parts of the dermis (middle layer of skin). It’s used to treat wrinkles, uneven skin tone and acne scars.

A deep chemical peel removes skin cells even deeper. It’s useful for deeper wrinkles and acne scars and can only be performed by a qualified doctor.

The Perfect Peel is a medium depth medical-grade chemical peel that can be used on all skin types. It requires no pre-peel skin preparation, the process takes less than 30 minutes and it is virtually pain-free.


What Makes The Perfect Peel Different?

There are lots of great chemical skin peels available, so what makes The Perfect Peel…well, perfect?

It comes down to its unique combination of ingredients. The Perfect Peel is the first chemical skin peel to use Glutathione – a powerful anti-ageing ingredient.

Glutathione is a naturally occurring substance in the body, but as you age the amount in the body starts to decrease – thanks to sun exposure, air pollution, environmental toxins and ageing.

When used in The Perfect Peel, glutathione penetrates deep into the cellular level of the skin to fight oxidant damage and help combat premature wrinkling. It has also been shown to help lighten pigmentation – improving the appearance of freckles or sunspots.

Other ingredients include kojic acid, retinoic acid, TCA, salicylic acid, phenol, and a blend of minerals and vitamins, including vitamin C. These ingredients help to increase collagen and elastin production, reduce wrinkles and correct pigment problems. Alone the ingredients are powerful, but in combination, they produce results that are astonishing.

How The Perfect Peel Works

The Perfect Peel works on several levels:

Exfoliation – Salicylic acid helps to exfoliate the skin and remove the top layers of dead or damaged skin cells.

Reduce Inflammation – Salicylic acid also reduces the formation of pro-inflammatory prostaglandins. Reducing inflammation and the symptoms associated with it such as acne.

Stimulate Collagen & Elastin – Carefully selected ingredients in the Perfect Peel help to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin – the cells that give your skin its structure and firmness.

Correct Pigment Problems – Some of the ingredients, such as kojic acid, help to neutralise melatonin, helping to reduce the visibility of sun spots, freckles and melasma.

What Results Does It Offer You?

So what can it do for you? The Perfect Peel offers a range of benefits including:

  • Improved skin tone and texture.
  • Brighter, firmer skin.
  • Reduced sun damage and age spots.
  • Reduced pore size.
  • Fewer fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Improved Hyperpigmentation and reduced acne scars.
  • Improved acne and melasma.
  • Enhanced collagen production.

So if you’re looking for a great “all-round” skin peel, The Perfect Peel is the ideal treatment for you.

What To Expect From Your Perfect Peel Treatment

The Perfect Peel does not require any pre-treatment preparation and can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. Making it ideal for those of you with busy schedules!

When you arrive at your appointment your aesthetic doctor will cleanse your face and prepare it for the skin peel treatment. They will apply the Perfect Peel solution. You can leave the clinic as soon as this is completed but you will need to leave the solution on your skin for around 6 hours, before washing it with the products provided.

You’ll be given a home care treatment pack which includes The Perfect Derma Moisturizer with and Post-Peel Towelettes to help calm any discomfort – such as tightness, redness, or itching – that may occur as your skin prepares to peel.

Your skin may appear pink immediately after the solution is applied, but it will take around 3 days for the peeling to start. The Perfect Peel is a medium depth peel – so you should experience thin sheets of skin peeling off. This will finish by around day 6 – when your peel process is complete and you’ll see the results – smooth, clear, bright and younger looking skin.

Is It Safe? Does It Hurt?

The Perfect Peel is considered a safe and effective treatment. Most people find it a comfortable treatment. You might feel a light stinging as the solution is first added to your skin. Once the first layer of the solution is applied most people experience a numbing sensation and no further discomfort.

How Long Does It Take To Recover?

During the following days as your skin sheds its old top layer, you might have some mild itching and heightened sensitivity. The special moisturiser that’s provided as part of your Perfect Peel package will help to ensure it remains comfortable for you. 

You’ll need to avoid wearing makeup or applying any other products to your face for the first 24-48 following your peel. 

The skin will start to peel after day 3 and the process should be complete by day 6 – giving you smoother, clearer and firmers skin. 

How Long Do The Results Last?

The Perfect Peel removes the top layers of your skin to reveal the stronger, healthier cells below. Once the skin is removed, it won’t come back, however it is possible for the same sun damage and ageing process to occur to the new cells over time.

Using the right skin care products such as The Perfect C serum can help to make the most of your Perfect Peel and ensure the results last as long as possible. For ongoing rejuvenation and results we do recommend two to three treatments of The Perfect Peel per year.

Read How I Improved My Lichen Sclerosus

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
