Specialty Facial Peels
A range of active peels are available to treat a range of concerns, each designed for individual skin conditions and skin types. Skin peels correct and treat sun damage, pigmentation, rosacea, congestion, pores, melasma and poor skin texture. Customised to individual treatment plans and skin conditions.
The aim of any skin peel is to remove the skin’s outer layer, the stratum corneum which is composed primarily of dead cells. The removal of this layer enhances the creation of the healthy new layer below. When performed properly, this procedure can effectively diminish the appearance of wrinkles, age spots and blemishes with little or no trauma to the healthy cells. Using medical grade ingredients peels encourage gentle, effective skin renewal. At gc skin boutique we offer an extensive range of medical grade skin peels. Our staff are all medically trained to ensuring that you not only get a peel that is right for your skin but that you will receive a tailored peel programme offering great results with minimal down time.

Synergie Salicylic Acid Peel
Synergie Skin Salicylic Acid peel is another gentle yet effective treatment for the management of acne and congested skin, dull skin in need of exfoliation or sun damaged skin.
Cients are recommended to use the Synergie Skin A-Zinc Essentials Kit two weeks prior to treatment. To pre-condition the skin and begin the exfoliation and renewal process, it is recommended to add Reveal and Blem-X to the skin care regime.
One treatment every 2 to 4 weeks is recommended with a total or 4 to 6 treatments.
Benefit Peel truly is a peel for all skin types. Utilizing encapsulated Retinol, this stimulating antioxidant peel is especially effective at neutralizing hyperpigmented, problem and prematurely aged skin types.
Lactic peels, sometimes referred to as AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) peels target the epidermis (the uppermost layer of the skin), breaking down the glue that holds the skin cells and they also penetrate the skins surface enabling the removal of the dull, dry skin layer. This results in a faster cell turn over, more youthful appearance and reduction of fine lines.
Our TCA peels are available in two different strengths, 25% which provides medium-depth remodelling and 40% which offers the deepest and therefore more efficient skin remodelling. TCA peels will improve colour, freshness, texture, skin tone, and fine wrinkles. They also help to remove superficial discoloration, such as age spots and are ideal for those who want a deeper peel with minimal down time. As these are higher strength peels they contain a topical anaesthetic to minimise discomfort and peeling of the skin is expected from day 2 until about day 5.
