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!
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 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.
