Ayumah Asigri Aesthetics carries a range of chemical peels that can be tailored to each individual's skin concern.
A minority of clients wishing to have a chemical peel need to have a pre-consultation 1-2 weeks before the peels commence and must adhere to adequate pre-peel treatment at home to prepare the skin for treatment (samples will be provided at pre-consultation). Failure to do this may result in unknown sensitivities from the glycolic acid in the peel. If you have had a peel before using glycolic acid and have had no previous reactions, it is possible to start peel treatment immediately.

Frequently asked questions
What is a chemical peel and how does it work?
Chemical peels are non-invasive (meaning no injections are used). They are treatments which are designed to enhance the quality of your skin.
A clinically approved chemical solution is applied to the skin area to be treated and it works by exfoliating the surface layer of the skin which then stimulates the production of cells underneath.
What are the benefits of a chemical peel?
There are many benefits of a chemical peel.
- reducing and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles;
- reduce scarring such as acne scarring
- reduce skin discolouration (hyperpigmentation)
- reducing the appearance of age spots;
- reduce the appearance of freckles
- softening the general texture of skin.
Chemical peels offer an array of benefits, much more than listed above.
What is the treatment process like?
After cleansing and gently exfoliating the skin, the tailored peel solution will be applied to the area to be treated and this will be left to work for a few minutes. The peel is then neutralised and suitable skin care and sun screen SPF are applied to the skin. A cooling lymphatic ice globe facial massage completes the treatment.
A soothing, toning algae mask can also be applied to the skin at client's request for a small additional fee.
Does it hurt?
At most a mild, tingling sensation or warming of the skin may be felt.
What will I look like after the treatment?
Immediately after the treatment your skin may appear to be slightly more red than usual, however this will soon reduce. No down-time is required and you can resume your normal daily activities.
How many treatments will I need?
For best results, we recommend a course of 4 – 6 treatments, spaced out at weekly to 4 weekly intervals.
Every client's skin is different and unique, and a bespoke treatment plan will be made with you during your consultation.
What shall I do after the treatment?
After receiving a chemical peel it is important to avoid intense sunlight and high temperatures for 7-10 days. We recommend using a high factor sunscreen for this period as your skin will be quite sensitive after the peel.
How much does it cost?
Add-on algae jelly mask - £10
