Skin Peels Wirral
How chemical peels work
Chemical skin peels remove the damaged outer layers of skin to reveal smoother, brighter-looking skin underneath. At our Wirral clinic we use chemical peels to help restore glow to tired, dull skin while targeting concerns such as acne, sun damage, pigmentation, fine line and wrinkles, and scarring.
A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to break down the top layers of skin this minimises fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation reveals the more youthful skin underneath. Different chemicals determine the depth of your peel and type of skin condition treated.
At Beyond Skin UK, we offer a range of chemical peels, with different strengths (from superficial to deep peels) containing different active ingredients so that whatever your skin type and concern we have a cosmetic peel specific to your needs. We have specific knowledge of all skin types including brown skin tones and are based on the Wirral.
What chemical peels do to the skin?
The skin is the largest organ of the human body and is constantly exposed to the sun and wind. Other external elements can have an adverse impact on the skin over the years.
At Beyond Skin we use chemical peels to correct and improve superficial skin conditions, some of the common outcomes we see from this treatment are:

Types of Skin Peel
- Superficial or lunchtime peel: Alpha-hydroxy acid or another mild acid is used to penetrate only the outer layer of skin to gently exfoliate it. The treatment is used to improve the appearance of mild skin discolouration and rough skin as well as to refresh the face, neck, chest or hands.
- Medium peel: Glycolic or trichloroacetic acid is applied to penetrate the out and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment is used to improve age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and moderate skin discolouration. It also can be used to smooth rough skin and treat some precancerous skin growths, i.e. actinic keratosis.
- Deep peel: Trichloroacetic acid or phenol is applied to penetrate the middle layer of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment removes moderate lines, age spots, freckles and shallow scars. Patients will see a dramatic improvement in skin appearance. The procedure is used on the face and only can be performed once.
