Professional Skin Peels

Over time, oil and dead skin cells can build up, causing our skin to appear dull, congested, and in need of revitalisation. At Flawless Rejuvenation in Melbourne, our chemical peels exfoliate old layers of skin to provide gentle and deep rejuvenation. This leaves the complexion smoother, brighter, and healthier.

Younger skin produces new cells on a daily basis, maintaining strong tissue fibres that keep the skin firm and flexible. With age, the rate of cell production begins to decrease, making the skin less malleable and more prone to the effects of aging such as lines, wrinkles, and pigmentations. Chemical peels are a common cosmetic remedy for these signs of declining skin conditions. Peels work to strip away old layers of skin, leaving your face smoother and more vibrant.

Our chemical peels exfoliate the skin to provide gentle and deep rejuvenation. They improve congested skin, clogged pores, pimples, and dull skin appearance, as well as work to maintain skin health. During your meeting with our Dermal Clinician, they will help you choose the right peel for your skin and advise a course of treatments to get the best results.

How it works

Over time, the building up of oils and dead skin cells is a natural occurrence. When pores become clogged, and cell reproduction rates decline, facial skin can start to appear dull and in need of a boost. Targeting and removing the skin’s outer layers is a great way to enhance the face’s overall skin quality. Chemical peels are an easy and effective method of improving the appearance and texture of the face, neck, and hands.

Chemical peels usually take the form of a gel or water-like substance. The chemicals are used at different potencies depending on the individual’s skin tone and the condition of the treated area. The treatment works by stripping a thin layer of surface skin, causing these layers to shrivel and shed. The process strips away dead cells, removes oil build-up, and reduces inflammation. It also encourages the outer layer to be replaced by a layer of healthier, more attractive skin, thus restoring the surface to an even complexion. Just one peel can leave the skin feeling clearer and more refreshed.

Skin peels work at a precise depth to strip away surface layers and achieve excellent outcomes whilst inflicting no damage to the underlying skin. The result is an improved skin tone and texture and an overall more radiant complexion.

The benefits of chemical peels

Skin peels are beneficial for treating various skin conditions and concerns. The process rids the skin of surface build-up, making it an ideal treatment for acne-prone skin in addition to skin that has developed visible signs of aging. A chemical skin peel is suitable for almost all skin types, and they are often used to treat the following issues:

Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Dry Skin


Acne Scars

It can also address:

  • Sun damage
  • Acne
  • Blackheads and whiteheads
  • Large or clogged pores
  • Age spots

Any or multiple of these issues can be improved with a chemical skin peel. Unclogging pores and removing dead skin cells will have different effects for each person. The process has helped many patients improve and rejuvenate their complexion, allowing them to feel more comfortable and confident in their skin.

Ideal candidates for chemical skin peels

Skin peels are a versatile treatment, and their application can be different for each person. This means they can be customised to your own needs and skin conditions. A consultation before treatment will be required to determine your skin needs and how to achieve the best results for you.

If you are prone to oily skin, clogged pores, or acne, this treatment may be an ideal approach to improving your skin condition. It can also have great results for people seeking to minimise aging problems such as lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and other skin blotchiness, as well as those simply seeking smoother and more vibrant skin.

Skin peels are suitable for anyone seeking to improve their skin quality and complexion whilst avoiding more invasive treatments.

What to expect

Light skin peels take less than 20 minutes to perform. The dermal clinician begins by cleansing the area to be treated before applying the appropriate peel to meet your skin’s requirements. The clinician will apply soothing serums to the skin and a protective moisturiser post-treatment.

Chemical skin peels are long-lasting, and most patients see improvement in their skin appearance and texture after one treatment. However, their effects are not permanent, so you may require multiple treatments to maintain the rejuvenating results of your skin peel. The number of treatments you will undergo will depend on your skin requirements.

Skin peels cost in Melbourne

Prior to having treatment, it is a good idea to be aware of how much it will cost. A professional skin peel is a great idea for people seeking a more powerful treatment than at-home skincare options. This means that for many people, they are worth the accompanying fee.

The exact price of your treatment can depend on a number of things, such as the type of peel, methods used, and the expertise of your clinician. Your personal skin needs may impact the techniques and duration of your procedure, which can impact the overall cost. If you wish to know more about the cost of skin peels, a discussion with a Dermal Clinician will help establish the details of your treatment and the fees involved. You can ask questions during this meeting to gain a better idea of what the procedure involves and how much it will cost to treat your specific skin concerns.

Things to consider and aftercare

Whilst skin peels are ideal for treating many common complexion issues, it is essential to take relevant factors into account when developing your approach to treatment. One such consideration is that peels often cause inflammation, which can be positive or negative. It is positive in that it stimulates the production of collagen and negative in that inflammation can be adverse to certain skin conditions. These factors can be discussed during your consultation to determine the best approach for your skin.

To lessen any negative effects and promote optimal results during the healing process, we advise that you do not expose the skin to sunlight, avoid picking at flaking skin, and moisturise often. You should also avoid strenuous exercise, saunas, and steam rooms. Since skin peels deeply exfoliate the skin, you will not need to exfoliate in the days following your treatment.

Chemical peel side effects

After your chemical peel treatment, expect to experience mild redness and heat in the skin. In the following days, your skin will likely feel dry and desquamative as your skin starts to peel. This is a normal part of the body’s healing process and an expected consequence of chemical skin peels. Peeling will usually resolve in a few days. For individuals who wish to have a skin peel treatment with no downtime, we offer skin peels that give a light exfoliation and focus more on concentrated hydration.

Severe side effects are very rare. However, it is worth researching the risks to ensure you are fully informed before your treatment. For example, infection and scarring can occur after skin peels in very rare cases. People with certain skin types may also be at risk of developing pigmentations. Your Dermal Clinician will assess your skin to see if you are suitable or at risk for certain issues.

Who is not a candidate for chemical peels?

It is important to discuss whether you are a good candidate before having any treatment. You may not be suitable for chemical peels if you:

  • Have severe skin conditions or infections
  • Have a history of abnormal scarring
  • Cannot avoid sun exposure during the healing phase

What are the types of chemical peels?

Different types of skin peels are available to treat different skin issues. A light peel provides subtle improvements with little to no downtime. In contrast, a medium peel removes the outermost layer of skin for visible results, while a deep peel offers the most dramatic results. Deep chemical peels are usually one-off treatments that require more healing time.

What is the recovery time for chemical peel treatments?

The recovery time can depend on the type of peel and your general health. Although it can take longer to heal from a deep peel compared to a light peel, the downtime after any skin peel is not significant. Your Dermal Clinician will give you recovery guidelines and advise how much time you will need to recover.

How many chemical peels do I need?

The frequency of peel treatments can vary. You can discuss with us how many peels you will need, based on your skin needs and the type of chemical peels you are having.

Will I know how long to wait between chemical peels?

Although every person is different, most patients can benefit from light, surface-layer peels once a month. However, your skin can take longer to recover from deep peels, which means these should only be done every couple of years.

Do chemical peels hurt?

During a skin peel treatment, most patients feel a heat sensation, which can last for 2-4 minutes. Your Dermal Clinician will ensure you are comfortable throughout the process.
