Chemical Skin Peels by aesthetic bTN
As one of the top 10 most commonly performed aesthetic procedures, clinic-based skin or chemical peels complement a good skincare regimen
They can also enhance the effects of injectable treatments.
They work by removing dead skin cells and stimulating the growth of new cells, promoting a more youthful and radiant appearance.
Other benefits include:
All of our peels involve a thorough cleanse of the skin prior to the application of the peel. The peel is followed by an antioxidant treatment and an appropriate masque for your skin. We conclude with the application of a corrective cream and lastly a sunscreen to protect.
As with all our treatments, a consultation is essential as some preparation may be required to get the full benefit of the peel. During the consultation, we will discuss your skin type and concerns, your history of peels, your current skincare regimen, your medical history and any allergies you may have. This information will guide us on where to start with of strength of peel.
SkinCeuticals® peels are formulated to the highest standards of purity, efficacy, pH, safety and tolerance. More information on the formulation will be given during the consultation.
Generally a course of at least 6 peels over 3 months is recommended however the skin will look improved after the first treatment.
Certain products are included in most of our courses of peels because they provide a clear benefit to your skin.
These are prescribed specifically for your skin type, concerns and goals so each client will be given different products however these will usually contain an antioxidant, a correcting product and an SPF. Retinol is also included with our Specialist Peel.
A period of pre-treatment of 2-4 weeks is ideally required to optimise results of the peels. This pre-treatment will increase the performance of the peels, minimise the potential for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and also expedites recovery by putting the skin into wound-healing mode.
Some of these products should also be incorporated into the post-procedure homecare regimen for the first 5-7 days post-peel to aid rehabilitation of the skin. This will all be discussed during the consultation.
We strongly recommend investing in the appropriate products to prepare and nurture your skin throughout your course.
EXPERT MICROPEEL 30 TREATMENT
Great for problematic, acne prone and photodamaged skin. It contains 30% pure, unbuffered Glycolic Acid.
All of the above treatments contain a powerhouse of ingredients combined with protective antioxidants to restore radiance and brightness and leave your skin looking refreshed.
PIGMENT BALANCING PEEL TREATMENT
Great for uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation and age spots. It contains a high concentration of Glycolic Acid with pure Vitamin C and Emblica. Due to its powerful exfoliating action, it reduces and diffuses discolouration while have a brightening effect.
THE BTN SIGNATURE ANTI-AGEING REJUVINATION PEEL
The BTN Signature Rejuventation Peel is an advanced anti-ageing treatment. Taking the basic principles of the Micropeel procedures, we have added in a pre-peel peel!
The first layer of peel opens the door to the epidermis allowing the second peel to penetrate deeper enabling superior results including improvement in the appearance of fine lines and also brightening the skin. It is generally recommended from the age of 55 years.
The pure Vitamin C component to this peel not only brightens the skin but stimulates lovely collagen production too!
As the course of peels proceeds, we have the option to increase the strength of both peels involved, customisable depending on tolerance, and therefore obtaining improving results at every peel.
THE BTN SIGNATURE MEN’S PEEL
We have created a signature peel for men because their skin does not deserve to be treated the same as women’s skin!
Men’s skin is structurally different with testosterone stimulation causing a 25% increased thickness. The texture of the skin is generally tougher and sebum production is greater.
So, what does this mean?
It means that we will not just apply a peel solution and accept that the results will be less favourable than on a woman’s skin! Our signature peel involves a layering approach where we will apply a pre-peel peel to ensure improved penetration of the Glycolic Acid based peel. This overcomes the increased thickness and tougher texture of the skin effectively. We will also use products during this treatment that will complement the unique features of male skin providing great results.
THE BTN SIGNATURE DARKER SKIN PEEL
Although the underlying physiology is generally the same, there are differences between darker and lighter skin types. The characteristics of darker skin are nurtured in our darker skin peel.
Darker skin types are generally oilier and more prone to congestion due to increased flow of sebum.
So how do we address this?
We cleanse deeper than before any of our other peels creating a pre-peel peel with the benefits of Kaolin and Bentonite with a combination of fruit acids.
Do we leave it at that? Of course not!
Another general characteristic of darker skin is its higher susceptibility to inflammation which can lead to skin discolouration concerns.
Hyperpigmentation can be caused by sun exposure, as a result of previous acne and also pregnancy. It is one of the most prominent skin ageing concerns in those of us with darker skin tones, so we will address that too! The peel we use during this treatment gives all of the usual benefits of a chemical peel but also specifically targets pigmentation. It is a superficial peel as deeper peels must be used with caution in darker skin. It combines brightening (not lightening!) and anti-inflammatory agents to reduce uneven skin tone and improve skin radiance.
THE BTN SIGNATURE RETINOL ACCELERATION PEEL
It’s that word again! Retinol, what is it? Well, it is a form of pure Vitamin A which when applied to the skin diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improves the appearance of age spots, refines pores and smooths the skin’s texture. Not bad!
So the use of Retinol and Glycolic Acid based peels during a treatment course is a Super Hero combination! It is recommended for skin that needs a bit of extra help and TLC.
This peel is not available as a single treatment, only as a course due to the preparation period required.
Once the preparation period is complete, we will treat you to a Hydration Booster Skin Solution treatment to ensure your hydration levels are restored prior to starting the course of peels.
Depending on which package you choose, we will also treat you to one or two of our Expert Lip, Eye or Hand treatments!
If you are willing to commit, the benefit to your skin will be well worth it!

Well, you guessed it, we have the solution!
Our Expert Hand Treatment rejuvenates through application of a peel. The peel can be left on for much longer than the time we would leave it on the face as the skin is much stronger on our hands. This also means we can use higher strength peels to gain optimum results. A pigment reducing product is used alongside the peel to improve radiance and luminosity.
