Professional Peels for Perfect Skin


We are no strangers to dull, lackluster skin. Starting as early as our late 20s, the cell renewal rate of our skin starts to slow down, explaining why our complexions gradually loses their youthful radiance and take on a tired, lacklustre appearance. Environmental assaults, insufficient rest and other lifestyle indiscretions contribute further damage to the skin.

If the term “chemical face peel” makes you want to back slowly out of the room, we have news for you. Sure, we’ve all heard horror stories and seen the Sex and the City episode where a blotchy-faced Samantha dons a black veil after a treatment goes awry. But when done right, face peels can work wonders on some of the most frustrating complexion issues, from acne to uneven skin tone.

(+) What is a chemical peel? 

A medical-grade chemical peel is formulated to provide therapeutic results for the skin – results that a spa facial cannot achieve. A thorough skin analysis will reveal the type of peel best suited for your unique skin type and your desired outcome. Today’s professional chemical peel treatments are uniquely formulated for ultimate results, safety and experience. The concentration of a chemical peel can vary and determines the depth of exfoliation from mild to deep. Innovations in professional peels have yielded optimal resurfacing results with less discomfort and recovery. The benefits of chemical exfoliation include improved skin texture, radiance, refinement of pores, sun damage repair, minimized fine lines and promotion of collagen synthesis. Treatments are fast, generally taking just 20-30 minutes from start to finish.

Know What You’re Getting Into
A chemical peel removes the top layers of the skin. The advantages of a chemical peel is that it can remove uneven color, brown discoloration, fine lines and roughness. Plus, it can give the skin glow and improve the overall texture of the skin. However, if not applied correctly you can experience burning, scarring or discoloration. When done right, chemical peels can work wonders on some of the most frustrating complexion issues, from acne to uneven skin tone. 

Keep Your Skin Type in Mind
Those with acne or those with signs of aging (such as fine lines and wrinkles or discoloration) should consider adding chemical peels to their regimen. More resilient skin types can explore higher levels of active ingredients while those with sensitive skin can opt for peels with lactic acid. As a preventative measure, you should always do a patch test first.

Choose Your Ingredients Wisely
If you are oilier and/or acne prone you look for peels containing salicylic acid. If you are looking for an anti-aging chemical peel, opt for a retinol-based version or ones containing glycolic acid. 


How much downtime can I expect with a chemical peel? 
There is no significant downtime following a chemical peel. You can receive a peel on your lunch hour and return to work. However, you will experience some flaking two or three days following the treatment, which may last up to six days. The amount of exfoliation may be light or medium, depending on the type and amount of peel used.

However peels aren't for everyone. Skin experiencing eczema, rosacea or inflammation should avoid chemical peels. Those with darker skin tones who experience hyper-pigmentation may want to opt for in-office procedures—sometimes their skin types can be tricky even for the professionals.


(+) Milk Peel - For Dull Skin/ Clogged Pores - Gentle enough for sensitive skin

For the uninitiated or those with sensitive skins, you can’t go wrong with lactic aka milk acids. If it’s good enough for the legendary Egyptian diva to bring not one but two Roman boys to the yard, one shouldn’t underestimate the prowess of this simple treatment. The Milk Peel utilizes an ultrasonic peeling system on top of the gentler lactic acid formulations to brighten dull, sallow skins and lighten surface pigmentation and blemishes for cleaner and clearer complexions. With the assault of air pollutants in the recent bouts of haze, this is an excellent spa treat for a mild, all-over exfoliation, melting away debris clogging up your pores without excessive peeling nor skin irritation. It’s so gentle it’s like mama holding your hand on your first ballet lesson, instead of shoving you hands bound into the deep end of a traditional chemical peel.


(+) Glamour Peel - For Uneven Skin Tone / Acne Marks

Starting as early as our late 20s, the cell renewal rate of our skin starts to slow down, explaining why our complexions gradually loses their youthful radiance and take on a tired, lacklustre appearance. Environmental assaults, insufficient rest and other lifestyle indiscretions contribute further damage to the skin.You can fight different elements of ageing and build a dazzling radiance by seizing the daily opportunity brought by cellular turnover. Healthy skin renews itself every 14 to 30 days. Unfortunately, this cycle slows into a dull, rough spot or a frustrating comedonal traffic jam with age and the stresses of urban living.

If you want your skin to “glow” stronger year after year, go back to basics by starting on a ‘clean slate’ with The Sloane Clinic’s Glamour Peel. Using a combination of professional alpha-hydroxy acid (AHAs) peels carefully selected by the doctor to address multiple skin concerns simultaneously. It delivers a quick all-round complexion improvement from evening out skin tone to brightening dull skin, minimizing pores to smoothening of fine lines and balancing of sebum overproduction. Together with a series of oxygenating masques and regenerating concentrates, this gentle skin peel kick-starts the cell renewal process, stimulating healthy cell regrowth while exfoliating dead cells, for a smoother, suppler and more even skin tone that glows from within.

At The Sloane Clinic, they use a wide variety of unique formulations of chemical peels to suit your skin and needs. Their doctors will analyse your skin carefully before deciding on the precise formula used. The type of peel will also vary according to the amount to skin exfoliation you can tolerate.
