Skin peels are a very popular and effective treatment, where the top layer of skin is removed to reveal fresh, new skin underneath. They are sometimes called chemical peels depending on the nature of the solution that is applied; at Timeless Skin we offer our London patients both chemical and non-chemical peels.

We have many years’ experience in offering skin peels in London and can deal with all skin types and a wide range of skin concerns, from ageing problems such as lines and wrinkles, sun damage and other pigment problems, to poor skin tone that may include dull and tired skin or enlarged pores.


Am I suitable for a Chemical Peel treatment?

During your free consultation, your Timeless Skin practitioner will assess your skin and discuss your concerns and what you’re hoping to achieve from your treatment. We offer both chemical and non-chemical skin peels and will advise you on the best protocol depending on what results you’re hoping to achieve.

What Skin Peel treatment do you offer at Timeless Skin?

The MandeliClear Peel System was developed specifically for attenuating pigmentation issues associated with darker Fitzpatrick skin types. The system can be classified as a modified Jessner, containing 7% lactic, 7% salicylic and 7% resorcinol, in an ethanol base with quillaja bark. It also contains 9% mandelic acid, which is often derived from almond and wild cherry sources. Mandel is German for almond. This peel is safe, gentle, and well tolerated by most skin types.

Circadia’s Jessner’s Peel is a combination of 14% Resorcinol, 14% Lactic and 14% Salicylic Acid. Since resorcinol is a peeling agent, the client will experience noticeable peeling or flaking approximately 3 to 4 days after the peel. Resorcinol will increase the amount of peeling experienced after a peel. Peeling is usually light to moderate and depends on the skin condition and depth of the peel.
