Chemical Skin Peel Treatment in Hale, Cheshire

Your skin can be affected by a huge range of factors – stress, lack of sleep, hormonal changes, the natural ageing process, your diet and lifestyle, sun exposure and pollution, among an almost endless list of other influences. Dull, congested or sun damaged skin can make us look more aged and tired, and the signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles may be impacting on your confidence. At Katie Alex Aesthetics, we offer chemical skin peels, the key to skin rejuvenation, to help give clients in the Cheshire and South Manchester area, including Altrincham, Mottram St Andrew, Alderley Edge, Hale Barns, Morley Green, Handforth, Heald Green, Sale, Carrington, Tabley, Knutsford, Ollerton Chelford and Nether Alderley the smooth, bright, glowing skin they’ve dreamed of.

What Are Chemical Peels And What Can They Treat?

Cost effective with outstanding results, chemical skin peels should be part of everyone’s skin care regime. Chemical peels can seem intimidating to some people, as in the past, they were very harsh and could cause skin issues. However nowadays, chemical peels are incredibly safe. They come in three approximate depths, superficial, medium and deep. Superficial and medium depth peels are particularly safe, and give fantastic results for a variety of skin issues. Katie Alex uses medium depth, medical-grade TCA peels to treat a variety of skin complaints such as:

  • Photo-ageing and age spots.
  • Acne and milder acne scarring.
  • Fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Melasma (grey-brown pigmentation on the skin, often caused by sun damage or hormonal changes during pregnancy).

TCA peels contain Trichloroacetic Acid as their active ingredient, a safe, non-toxic chemical which has been used for many years in the aesthetics industry. When applied to the skin, the acid gently penetrates the upper skin layers causing them to dry out and peel over a period of around 7 days. This not only clears the dead surface skin which can lead to dullness in your complexion, but also effectively stimulates collagen production and new skin cell growth beneath the skin’s surface, providing long-lasting results and boosting the health of your skin.

What Does Chemical Peel Treatment Involve?

Before every chemical peel treatment at Katie Alex Aesthetics, Katie carries out a full consultation to make sure that chemical peel treatment is right for you. She takes the time to get to know all of her clients, including your skin, your concerns and your desired results. On the day of your treatment, you’ll be welcomed by Katie to her private clinic in Altrincham, Cheshire. You will be the only client in the clinic for the duration of your appointment, to ensure you have Katie’s full and undivided attention.

During your treatment, Katie will cleanse your skin completely to ensure the peel can penetrate the skin evenly, before applying the peel to your skin. You may feel a warm sensation while the peel is active on the skin, but it is not painful or uncomfortable. Treatment time is around 20 minutes and you can get back to your day straight away, though you should wear a good, high-protection SPF for around a week after your treatment, as the skin becomes more sun-sensitive after chemical peels.

Results that you can expect from a chemical peel at Katie Alex Aesthetics include:​

  • Skin appearing clearer, brighter, rejuvenated and more even.
  • Softer, smoother skin texture.
  • Reduction of the appearance of pigmentation and sun damage.
  • Acne reduction.
  • Improved appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Katie usually recommends a course of 4 peels (one peel per week) for optimum results. Further top-up treatments can be undertaken on an individual needs basis, to help maintain results.
