Skin peels have active ingredients that deeply exfoliate and brighten the skin. The treatment stimulates new cell growth and collagen production, helping to reveal fresher, more clear and brighter skin. Skin peels remove the top layer of dead skin cells which encourages new cells to grow. This way we get softer and younger looking skin. Peels are categorised based on the depth to which they work into superficial, medium and deep peels.
The combination of Alpha Hydroxy Acids like glycolic, lactic and malic acid, Beta Hydroxy Acids like the acne-fighting salicylic acid and gentle exfoliants like fruit enzymes, dissolve the ‘glue’ that holds your dead skin cells together, revealing a younger, smoother skin. TCA peels work on a medium to deeper level.
Chemical peels can be carried out on the face, neck and hands. They can be used for:
- The treatment of certain types of acne
- The treatment of hyperpigmentation
- The treatment of rosacea
- Treating wrinkles caused by sun damage
- Treating wrinkles and sagging skin caused by aging
- Helping with age spots
- Helping with scars
- Reduce spots, freckles and dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills
- Improvement of the look and feel of the skin and to make the skin glow!

Alumier Skin Peels
With over 100 years of combined skin care experience, Alumier MD peel treatments are the next generation of clinical exfoliation. With a variety of peels, each with a unique complex of ingredients, here at Thames & Facial Care we can customise your programme of treatments to target your specific skin concerns whether it is ageing, pigmentation or acne. This unique experience includes an exfoliation peel treatment, brightening enhancement followed by prescriptive targets serums which reveal a more radiant, soft and luminous skin. Beautiful skin does not happen overnight and treatments take time to show results. A single chemical peel can provide immediate effect of bright and radiant skin. However, some skin problems such as textural issues, fine lines and inflamed acne can take up to eight weeks to resolve and need repeated treatments. With Alumier MD we offer light to medium depth peels known for their excellent results and safety profile. Peels are performed regularly so the skin gets used to the process and begins to rejuvenate itself like younger skin. To be sure that the body does not react to this exfoliation as it would with trauma, which can lead to pigment changes, exfoliation must be introduced gradually giving the skin time to adjust. Pre-treatment products precondition the skin, accelerate results and minimise complications. Post-treatment products minimise complications, heal and soothe the skin and maintain the results. With the stronger peels we will provide you with your baseline homecare routines to be adhered to religiously after your peels.
