What is a Chemical Peel Facial?
A chemical peel facial is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure designed to gently and safely peel back the top layers to freshen and brighten your skin. This age-old skin treatment dates back to the 19th century. Today the treatment is more sophisticated and refined and uses the latest in medical science and essential active ingredients to gently and effectively exfoliate the dermis for naturally smooth and renewed skin. Popular Treatments include a chemical peel for acne scars and a chemical peel for hyperpigmentation.
How does a Chemical Peel Facial work?
A chemical peel facial exfoliates and loosens layers of dead skin cells to stimulate the body’s natural healing and renewal process. Fortunately, this cosmetic procedure does not involve needles or knives, making it relatively painless and efficient. First, our aesthetic specialists at Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic will thoroughly clean your skin and then apply the innovative SkinMed peel on the target areas. This chemical skin peel gently and safely strips back the top layers of skin to stimulate your natural healing process for transformation on a deeper cellular level.
What are the benefits of a Chemical Peel Facial?

Depending on the type of peel, between 1 – 10 days of recovery. The deeper the peel the longer the downtime.
