5 reasons why you should try a face peel
A face peel also known as a chemical peel has made a resurgence recently and has become one of the popular go-to non-invasive treatment for those looking to improve fine lines, discolouration and even acne.
Chemical peels is preferred by many as they can be counted on to deliver skin benefits such as reversing melasma and breakouts, even better than laser devices. By removing dull surface skin, this procedure effectively improves skin concerns at a fraction of the cost of machines.
Best of all, the peels of today are gentler but still ranks high in efficacy whilst infusing skin with ingredients that help to diminish facial lines, build collagen and improve overall skin tone.
If you’re still not sold, we’ve listed 5 very good reasons you should consider getting a face peel.
#1 They’re fast
Peels are generally done quickly and are pain-free which take only about 30 minutes. This literally means you can be in and out of your doctor’s office with time left to get a quick bite over lunch.
Customise your very own peel at SW1 Clinic to suit your skin’s type and concerns, after a careful analysis of your skin by our doctors. The type of peel used for you will also be determined by the amount of skin exfoliation you can tolerate.
#2 It’s as relaxing as getting a facial
As quick as a peel could be, it can also be as calming and relaxing as any other facial. In fact one of the popular hybrid facials that can be found at SW1 is a Milk Peel, which uses a customised blend of fruit acids to exfoliate and uncover the glow from under your skin. Dull complexion is restored to lif with a lightening of pigmentation and blemishes.
#3 Different peels for different folks

Medium-depth peels may cause some downtime and you may notice skin starting to peel or flake a day or two afterwards. Such peels are great for those looking to treat acneic or discolored skin, and even those who are concerned with facial scars, sun damage or uneven skin tones.
Deep peels are great for those who have severe wrinkles, loss of elasticity, deep scars and aging skin. But such peels are normally done under sedation and could involve up to two weeks of down time.
#4 Say hello to glowing skin
Without a doubt, face peels are a wonderful way to kickstart your glow in lacklustre skin. Despite the mild flaking to be expected with some peels, skin regains an enviable glow leaving many hard to put their finger on. Even something as mild as Sleep Mode which you can use in the comfort of your own home just before you go to bed. By working to increase the natural rate of skin exfoliation while you sleep, you can be sure to wake up to brighter, clearer skin.
#5 It helps other skincare products work better
Because the acids in peels help to lift away dead cells, they essentially are removing a layer of skin, which can help your products penetrate deeper. By removing this layer of skin, it signals to the living cells below to move up and increase their collagen production, which in turn increase the production of hyaluronic acid to plump the skin, and helps to create a smoother, more radiant appearance.
