Chemical peeling is a technique which is used to rejuvenate the skin and to remove various types of skin blemishes.
Chemical Peels are an effective way to improve skin tone and texture, resulting in a fresher more youthful complexion. Your Vivo Skin Therapist will tailor a specific chemical solution that will best address your skin concerns. Chemical Peels work in a variety of ways to stimulate cell renewal, refine, rejuvenate and hydrate the skin, as well as regenerate and resurface damaged skin. A chemical Peel may also be combined with Microdermabrasion, Skin Needling, or IPL to provide accelerated and more dramatic results.
The active ingredients we use include Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) – such as Glycolic, Lactic and Mandelic acid – as well as Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) like Salicylic acid, along with Retinoids (Vitamin A) and Enzymes.

Your Vivo Skin Therapist will analyse your skin to detect any concerns you may have. After this assessment you will be told if you are a suitable candidate for a Chemical Peel. During this consultation, you will be able to ask your Skin Therapist any questions you have regarding the procedure. At this time your Skin Therapist will discuss what results you can expect to achieve with the recommended Chemical Peel programme.

Preparation: Two weeks prior to your peel of choice you will need to start preparing your skin. Your Vivo Skin Therapist will advise you of the required skin care regime you will need to undertake before your treatment.
Duration: Your Chemical Peel treatment will take from 30-60mins.
Aftercare: The deeper the peel, the greater the likelihood of experiencing side effects, with increased recovery time needed. Some side effects that can occur include swelling, redness and stinging. Most superficial peels are safe and effective, whereas medium and deeper peels require careful pre-peel preparation and post-peel care. You Vivo Skin Therapist will give you the right post-treatment advice that is specific for the type of peel you have had.
After your peel, the skin will be tender and will need gentle care. The most important thing to remember after a Chemical Peel is to steer clear of picking, scrubbing or peeling the skin away yourself. Removing the skin prematurely can lead to complications such as hyper-pigmentation. Avoid scrubs, exfoliants and acne cleansers unless otherwise instructed. These products will only further irritate the skin, therefore slowing down the healing process.
It is essential to protect your skin using an SPF50+ every day.
For Best Results: We recommend 3 - 6 treatments for optimal results.
Not Recommended For: People who have active skin infections (such as cold sores), a history of problems with healing or who have had some anti-acne treatments in the past year.
