Chemical Peels Frequently Asked Questions

Chemical Peels FAQs

How do I understand chemical facial peels?

Over the years, your skin can gradually appear dull and lifeless. This can be caused by dead skin cells that accumulate and clog up your skin.
Chemical facial peels aim to remove the dead skin cells from the skins surface to allow new healthy skin cells to grow back creating smoother looking skin.

They can also be used to treat blemishes, scars and help reduce the signs of ageing. We offer a wide range of chemical peels here at City Aesthetics Chester ranging from our bespoke Red Carpet “Radiance” Peel with no downtime to our stronger TCA peels.

Our specially trained aestheticians will discuss the most suitable peel to achieve the results you want as part of your personalised treatment plan.

What are the benefits of facial peels?
• An accelerated form of exfoliation to revitalise skin tone and improve texture
• Can be used to rejuvenate skin around the eyes and mouth and on the face, neck, hands, forearms and chest
• Can help to reduce acne scarring, reverse sun damage, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, remove hyper-pigmentation, liver spots and other signs of ageing
What are the results of chemical facial peels?
A chemical peel treatment removes the layers of dead skin to reveal fresher looking, brighter and rejuvenated skin. Milder ‘superficial’ skin peels can be used as an extension of your beauty regime and repeated at certain intervals.
What is the downtime for a chemical peel?
The whole process usually takes around 30 minutes.

Some chemical peels are single treatments and involve no downtime. Others require a course of treatments with a 7 to 10 day recovery period and the use of sunblock as your skin can be quite sensitive. After any chemical peel you are free to leave the clinic as soon as you feel comfortable to do so.
