The term ‘chemical peel’ can sound scary or off-putting to those who are new to the world of professional skin treatments, however, the use of chemical peels to improve the appearance of the skin dates back as far as the ancient Egyptians.
A Chemical peel is a professional skin treatment which utilises different types of acids such as Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydroxy Acids and Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to safely and efficiently exfoliate dead and damaged skin cells to provoke the regeneration of healthy new ones.
The benefits of chemical peels are as wide-ranging as increased luminosity and glow to effectively treating skin conditions such as acne and pigmentation. Peels are categorised as either light/superficial, medium or deep depending on the layer of skin they target.

These peels target the outermost layer of the skin called the stratum corneum to gently exfoliate dead skin cells which build up on the surface, causing dullness and congestion. They are ideal if your skin is feeling dehydrated and dull or lacking in luminosity and glow. We typically recommend them as preperation for for deeper, more effective peels.
Medium depth chemical peels target the epidermal layer of the skin and are fantastic at treating the following skin concerns:
- controlling active acne and breakouts including open comedones (blackheads) closed comedones (whiteheads), papules and pustules.
- Mild-medium acne scarring
- Large dilated pores
- All signs of ageing including uneven skin tone and texture, lines and wrinkles, thinning skin and lack of hydration
- Excess oil production
- Post-inflammatory hyperpigmention (PIH) in darker skin types (Fitzpatrick 4-6) who are unsuitable for deeper medical peels.
Deeper NURSE/DOCTOR only peels
Deeper chemical peels target the dermis, the deeper layer of the skin where hyaluronic acid and collagen reside. They are the most effective peel to reverse signs of ageing such as deep static lines and wrinkles and to target and treat pigmentation which sits in the deeper layers of the skin such as melasma or long standing solar lentigos caused by sun and environmental damage. Deeper peels are also recommended for acne scarring such as box, ice pick and rolling scars.
Chemical peels can be used on the face, neck, chest and hands to treat any of the above skin concerns. Your medical practitioner will recommend the most suitable depth of peel for you and select the most appropriate acid or combination of acids based on your individual skin concerns. All of our peels are combined with LED light therapy which optimises treatment results.
A consultation will be required prior to treatment.

I had a filler treatment to my under eyes. As a busy mum I never get a full night’s sleep and my face was looking drawn and tired. I tried so many eye creams and eye masks that didn’t really help at all. I was nervous about getting fillers, but no one would ever know, I just look like I’ve actually had some sleep at last!!
The Skin Emporium clinic was recommended to me by a colleague. I have had several different treatments and have seen real changes, I will definitely keep coming back for more.
I travel across London to see these wonderful ladies, I wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else! They are so kind and caring as well as being the best at what they do.
I highly recommend Skin Emporium, for the way that they have looked after me and everything they have done for me. I have always struggled with problem skin, since having regular medical facials and using the products they recommended for me the difference has been very noticeable and looking back at photos before you wouldn’t believe it.
Excellent service. From booking my initial consultation through to having my treatment I was made to feel welcome unlike some clinics I have been to before that treat you like an inconvenience. My skin looks great, tighter and like I did probably 5 years ago. It has really worked and given me amazing confidence.
Always very friendly service and lovely clinic. I feel very comfortable throughout my appointments and aftercare advice advice has always been great. So nice to find a medical clinic that is not stuffy.
Quality treatments with a very professional service throughout. I am very happy with everything I have had done here at the clinic and would definitely recommend to anyone looking into these sorts of treatments. The medical staff all have years of experience, which was really important to me after a previous bad experience.
