Chemical Skin Peels Melbourne VIC
Improve your skin appearance with our light chemical skin peels
Also known as ‘chemical peels’, ‘light peels’, or ‘lunchtime peels’, these terms encompass a range of solutions containing ingredients (usually mild acids) that are applied to the skin for short periods of time to exfoliate skin cells. The peel ingredient s do this by cleaving the microscopic connections between the dead skin cells on the surface of the skin that give the skin a dull appearance. This allows the cells to be released from the skin, giving the skin a smoother.
The peels used at Flawless Rejuvenation Skin Clinic can improve congested skins, clogged pores, pimples, dull skin appearance and maintain skin health. During your initial consultation, your Flawless clinician will choose the appropriate peel for your skin.

Frequently asked questions
How long does peel treatment normally take?
Light skin peels take less than 20 minutes to perform. The dermal clinician begins by cleansing the area to be treated, then applys the appropriate peel to meet your skin’s requirements. Post treatment the clinician will apply soothing serums to the skin and a protective moisturiser.
Is there any discomfort with peels?
The peels used at Flawless Rejuvenation Skin Clinic do not require anaesthetic or topical numbing. Most clients describe the sensation of peels as mild ‘tingling’, ‘warm’ and sometimes ‘prickly’. Your dermal clinician will talk you through the treatment and ask you to give verbal feedback throughout the treatment to manage your comfort levels. When selecting the type and strength of peel, the dermal clinician will consider your skin’s condition to reduce excessive irritation.
