Chemical Peels in Cheltenham.

Everything you need to know.

Chemical peels is a skin care treatment dermatologists can use on most areas of the body, but are most commonly used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face or on the back of the hands. They work by gently removing layers of skin by applying a chemical solution which causes the skin to peel off, making the way for new, healthy skin to shine through.

Chemical peel treatment involves carefully removing the outer layers of the surface of the skin with the application of a chemical solution. There are different levels of chemical peels which determine the amount of skin which is removed during the treatment. The type of chemical used, the strength of the product and how long it is left on the skin will vary depending on which chemical peel you have.

Here at Stratum Dermatology Clinic Cheltenham, we are able to treat a variety of skin complaints using a chemical peel treatment including:

  • Dull, ageing skin
  • Sun damage
  • Acne
  • Oily skin
  • Acne Scars
  • Melasma and pigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun/age spots and freckles
  • Uneven skin, enlarged pores and blackheads

Chemical Peels can be classified as either superficial, medium or deep peels depending on the chemical solution applied to the skin surface. They all remove the outer layers of the skin, but do so to variable depths. Our team of experienced medical skin experts in Cheltenham, will advise on which type of chemical peel would benefit you most, as well as how many peels you would require depending on the condition you are treating and the results you are aiming for.

No matter how deep the peel, your skin will re-grow and should heal fully. If you choose to have a deeper peel – maybe to treat acne scars and get rid of wrinkles – when the skin re-grows, it will not “remember” the blemishes that were there before. As the new skin develops, a new band of collagen in the dermis will grow along with a thicker epidermis. Hence, your skin will appear smoother and more perfect than before the treatment. This is often a good solution for treating acne scarring.

The deeper the peel, the greater potential for improvement to the skin. However, the risks of side effects are greater with deeper peels. Your therapist will discuss all available options during your consultation.

At Stratum Dermatology Clinic Cheltenham, we use Neostrata products in our chemical peels. Neostrata, which translates to ‘new layers’ is an industry leading skincare brand who have been researching and discovering some of the best topical skincare ingredients for over 40 years. Neostrata products are used and sold by Doctors in 85 different countries and are tailored to individual skin types.


How can I look after my skin after a chemical peel?

Following your chemical peel it is important to not pull or pick at your skin as it can interrupt the skins natural healing cycle and you are more likely to get an infection. Be gentle with your skin and treat it with care, using sensitive products on your skin. Continue to moisturise your skin as normal, ensuring you are using an SPF sun protection daily and avoiding direct sun light where possible. It is also important to drink lots of water and stay hydrated.

How long does it take to heal after a chemical peel?

Treated areas will take around seven to 14 days to heal following a medium depth chemical peel. Deeper chemical peels may take slightly longer.

Can anyone have a chemical peel?

Chemical Peels aren’t recommended for those who have psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, rosacea, broken skin, sunburn or active cold sores. During your consultation with a therapist at Stratum Dermatology Clinic Cheltenham, your skin will be assessed and treatment options discussed with you.

Who will carry out the chemical peel?

At Stratum Clinics Cheltenham, your chemical peel will be carried out by a fully qualified and experienced skin therapist.

How many chemical peels will I need?

The amount of chemical peels required to see results depends on the condition you are treating and the type of skin you have. Some improvement will be seen after each peel but it is often recommended to have a series of six peels to see the full desired effect. During your consultation at Stratum Dermatology Clinic Cheltenham, the length of course required will be discussed with you.
