Treatment usually takes 90 minutes or less
A chemical peel appointment can take about 90 mins to complete depending on the treatment area and the type of skin condition.
Keep your skin hydrated
A big part of keeping your skin healthy is to make sure it is hydrated. It is important to make sure your skin is hydrated prior to your appointment.
Do not exfoliate the area-
It is important that you DON’T exfoliate the area at-home using chemical or physical exfoliants in the days leading up to your treatment. Many at home exfoliants contain chemicals that can cause damage to the skin, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Your skin will peel in the days after your treatment
Following a chemical peel, your skin will peel for 3-10 days. For this reason, we recommend leaving plenty of time for the your skin to heal if you are having a peel before an upcoming event.
Look after your skin-
As the chemical peel will expose new skin, it is important to treat it with care after the treatment. This means using a gentle cleanser and a hydrating serum or gel. One of the biggest risks after treatment is sun exposure, so make sure to stay sun safe and use a high SPF sunscreen while your skin heals.
You may experience some mild irratation after your treatment
After your treatment, you may notice some mild swelling, irritation and dryness around the treatment area. Your skin may also become slightly darker and imperfections more visible for a few days after your appointment.

Frequently asked questions
There are many chemical peels that are suitable for different skin conditions and skin types. In order to determine the most suitable chemical peel for your skin type it is important to come in for a complimentary skin analysis with one of our para-medically trained therapists.
Aside from the varying percentages of active ingredients in each chemical peel, the other difference between chemical peels is the depth in which they can penetrate the epidermis. At Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics, we have 4 depths of peels starting from an enzymatic, very superficial, and superficial to medium depth peels.
Enzymatic Peels are an extremely gentle and comfortable treatment that only target dulling and flaking dead skin cells.
Very Superficial Peels target the upper most layers of the epidermis to promote increased exfoliation and surface hydration for an instantly softer, smoother complexion.
Superficial Peels work deeper within the epidermis to provide concentrated exfoliation and renewal. Targeted ingredients further enhance the action to activate increased hydration and to normalise cellular function.
Medium Depth Peels provide the most active resurfacing and rejuvenation effect within the deepest layers of the epidermis to promote intensive skin correction and regeneration.
Depending on the type of chemical peel being performed, the side effects will vary. The enzymatic peel for example only targets dead skin cells sitting on the very top layer of the epidermis therefore you will not experience any side effects what so ever – only soft, smooth skin! The other side effects that may occur with other chemical peels are mild to moderate redness, sun burnt sensation, flaking skin, swelling, a mild sting to the area as well as a light breakout. In some cases particularly when treating pigmentation, you may experience slight crusting, which in fact is a desired effect.
On average, between 4-8 treatments are normally required every 2-8 weeks (depending on the chemical peel). Based on your skin condition, your paramedical skin therapist can determine how many treatments you will require.
After having a chemical peel, you must ensure you avoid any excessive heat to the area such as hot showers, exercise, saunas, spas etc. Certain chemical peels may require that no water comes into contact with the treated area. The use of an SPF 30+ is essential and you must avoid using active cosmeceutical skin care for a few days post treatment.
Depending on the chemical peel being performed, you may be required to use certain skin care for approximately two weeks prior to your treatment. This is essential to achieve the safest and most effective treatment possible. You need to also ensure that you are using an SPF 30+ and inform your therapist if you have any allergies (i.e aspirin).
Enzymatic Micro Peel
Suitable especially for tight and sensitive skin, these peels are best performed as part of a course or in conjunction with microdermabrasion treatment. The enzymatic micro peel uses enzymes that only remove dead skin cells and do not touch live skin cells and are also suitable in conjunction with other chemical peels, microdermabrasion, skin needling and photo rejuvenation treatments to help remove the flaking dead skin cells.
In order to retain youthful skin, the aim of this peel is to speed up the natural shedding process of our skin. As we age, this natural shedding process slows down and factors such as sun damage, diet and lifestyle can also interrupt this process. The ageless peel reduces damage caused by sun exposure and aids in the rebuilding of collagen giving you a more youthful appearance.
Glycolic Acid Peel
Glycolic acid is one of the Alpha-hydroxy acids. Glycolic acid (derived from sugar cane) and lactic acid’s (naturally occurring acid in the body) main function is to remove the top layer of the skin which will speed up the natural shedding process of our skin and result in a fresher, smoother complexion.
Purple Peel (AHA & BHA Peel)
Our purple peel is a medium depth peel that contains Glycolic, Lactic, Salicylic and Mandelic acid. It is a medical grade peel that helps treat severe pigmentation, ageing and acne prone skin. It penetrates the deepest out of all the chemical peels, and requires the use of skin care for approximately 3-4 weeks prior to treatment.
