Since that infamous episode of Sex & The City, peels have had a bit of a bad wrap. However, face peels today are a quick and effective treatment that targets blackheads, pigmentation, acne, breakouts, dryness, open pores and ageing skin.
A cosmeceutical peel works by simply accelerating the naturally occurring exfoliation process that happens within the human body, as induced by a gentle cosmeceutical agent. The AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) & BHAs (Beta Hydroxy Acid) used in our range of glycolic peels will target these specific skin concerns, preventing them from developing any further.
*SALON SECRET * Lead a busy life or have a big event coming up? Our glycolic peels in Perth by Skindeep are incredibly time efficient, fast acting & customisable to every area, concern & skin type!
Over 19 years ago, Helen and the team at Skindeep Medi-Spas led the way by introducing glycolic peels to Perth. Since then, the research into these amazing treatments has evolved and grown, and we pride ourselves on using the latest products and technology to give you the very best results.
What do they do?
Glycolic peels can target a number of different skin concerns and deliver the following benefits:
Revitalise dry, mature and sun damaged skin;
Deeply hydrate and retexturise dry skin;
Even your skin tone;
Stimulates dermal proteins, collagen and elastin fibres;
Minimise the look of fine lines and wrinkles;
Brightens the look of the skin;
Breaks down epidermal and dermal pigmentation.
In the same way that all Skindeep facials are targeted carefully to your skin, peels are really a matching game that should only be performed by a qualified professional. During your treatment, one of our Paramedical Therapists will need to match the depth and strength of the peel with the specific concern you are trying to correct, to deliver you the best results.

How do they work?
Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) work by exfoliating the skin to slough the dead surface cells away. This is done by loosening the glue-like substance that binds skin cells together, allowing the peel to penetrate at a much deeper level and increase the level of exfoliation intensity.
The intensity of our peels varies, depending upon the essential exfoliating ingredients, percentage of active ingredients, the delivery system and the peels’ PH level. If you haven’t had a glycolic peel in Perth before, we suggest popping into one of our salons prior to your appointment to allow us to assess your skin. Different products are suited to different skin types and concerns, so it’s important that we are able to carefully look at your skin before performing your treatment, preferably using the Observ Skin Diagnosis system in our salons.
If you’ve never experienced a peel before, we recommend you prepare your skin by using the corresponding home care prior to your treatment. This allows your skin to become accustomed to the active ingredient, lessening the chance of any irritation and ultimately improving the results of your treatment. To find out more about our glycolic peels in Perth, please feel free to pop into our salon and speak to one of our Paramedical Therapists.
What to expect
Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and primed prior to your peel, so your face is free from any lingering make-up, oils or bacteria. The peel solution is then applied to your skin and left for a period of time, dependent on the specific peel type. During the peel time, your skin may feel a touch itchy or prickly, especially if there are areas of breakouts. Your Therapist will be with you at all times, monitoring and gently brushing the area to assist with any areas of itchiness. Once the peel has activated and delivered the required treatment, it is either cleansed away, neutralised or left to self-neutralise.
We finish your treatment with moisturiser and SPF, and can also apply mineral make up if you wish. Depending on the peel you choose with your Therapist, you should be able to return to work or play straight away.
*SALON SECRET* We recommend booking an Omnilux LED Light Therapy treatment to speed up the healing and add an extra OOMPH to your peel – just $60 with any peel!
The cost of our glycolic peels in Perth may vary on the requirements and intensity, and our advanced peels range from $60 – $250.
If you are yet to experience a peel for yourself, we suggest you speak with one of our professional Paramedical Therapists who will recommend the correct peel for you and your skin. We offer a complimentary Skin Analysis session on the same day as any peel, so we can make sure that your treatment will give you the best result, whatever your skin concerns.
