More About the Chemical Peels
Have you noticed your skin is looking lifeless or aged?
Do you wish you had healthy, glowing and youthful skin?
They may sound like a particularly nasty interrogation technique, but chemical peels are actually an extremely effective method of skin rejuvenation. And they’ve been around for a while. Remember Cleopatra’s famous milk baths? Yep – that was a form of chemical peeling which utilised the lactic acid contained in soured milk, an ingredient still used in some peels today. But, while they may have been around for centuries, chemical peels have certainly undergone a transformation.
Gone are the days of having to hibernate like a bear for two weeks after a chemical peel. Today, a peel is as much about healing as it is about removing layers of skin. At VC Dermal Clinics, our peels are an affordable, proven way to revitalise your skin while removing blemishes. Regular chemical peels can help improve mild sun damage, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and reduce skin pigmentation. You’ll also notice that your complexion is smoother and healthier looking. By gently removing the top layer of your dead skin cells, our medical grade chemical peels regenerate your skin surface.
We have an extensive range of chemical peels, from superficial up to strong medical-grade peels for stubborn skin conditions. Our highly trained and experienced therapists personally tailor medical grade chemical peels for your skin type and condition. All of them can be used in conjunction with other skin treatments, including microdermabrasion, photo rejuvenation, skin needling or laser facials.
WHAT CHEMICAL PEELS DO WE USE?
We use the Lira Clinical Peels System, which optimises results while reducing downtime. It may sound too good to be true, but Lira Clinical achieves this remarkable balancing act by formulating resurfacing solutions using healing minerals, botanical extracts and plant stem cells for cellular repair.
These evidence-based peels are cruelty free and made from active natural ingredients, including alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) such as glycolic, lactic and mandelic acid, and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) such as salicylic acid along with retinoids (vitamin A), niacinamide (vitamin B3) and specific enzymes.
An international team of experienced aesthetic, medical and scientific professionals has formulated each line of Lira Chemical Peels. The cutting edge and quality ingredients used in these chemical peels generate remarkable results. For optimal results, a course of chemical peels is recommended.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
Based on research and our extensive experience with chemical peels (over 18 years), we firmly believe that slow and steady wins the race. Don’t panic – we’re talking months, not years. Most of our clients see results within three months when they follow our instructions, which include regular in-clinic treatments and prescribed skin care at home. There are certain advanced skin conditions, such as acne and deeper pigmentation like melisma, which can take six to 12 months.
If you’re thinking that three months is quite a long time, it’s worth considering that most medications prescribed by doctors require a commitment of a similar time – at least. On top of this, these medications often contain potent ingredients that carry with them a long list of potential side effects. It’s important to keep this in mind when deciding which path is best for you.
