Chemical Peels are classified according to strength, with superficial peels being the mildest form, so gentle it’s often called, “the lunchtime peel.” The most common peeling agents in superficial peels are AHAS and BHAS and more gentle ones are based with simple fruit enzymes such as the Medik8 Superfacial Peel. These peeling agents are blended with other mild ingredients to create a liquid or paste formula that is applied to the skin for a duration of time long enough to penetrate only the epidermis. This process breaks down the binding elements of the skin’s top layer, causing dead skin cells to shed off to reveal the fresh, healthy underlying skin.
Chemical Peels are tailored per client. Superficial peels are also used to prepare the skin for deeper peels or to enhance the efficacy of other more invasive procedures that treat severe conditions like cystic acne, melasma, photodamage, dyschromias, and actinic keratoses.

MESOPEEL - Advanced peels by Mesoestetic
Our skin renews and regenerates naturally every 28 days, but with time and at certain times of life, adolescence, pregnancy, menopause, this process becomes irregular and slower; provoking the appearance of skin alterations: acne, shine, dilated pores, wrinkles, dull tone, pigmentation spots, etc.
Mesopeel is the most advanced range of specific chemical peels, designed to treat hyperpigmentation, signs of each phase of aging and aesthetic conditions such as acne and its effects, couperosis, rosacea, stretch marks and other imperfections.
Glycolic Peels - Improves exfoliation of superficial layers of the stratum corneum, stimulates cell regeneration, boosts glycosaminoglycan synthesis, moistures the epidermis and reinforces the skins natural barrier function.
Lactic Peels - Stimulates the production of new collagen and glycosaminoglycans, components of the dermal matrix. It has a natural moisturising effect on the skin as a result of attracting water molecules to the stratum corneum, stimulating ceramide synthesis and enhancing and modulating the barrier function. Indicated for sensitive, dry and thinning skin.
Salicylic Peels - With a strong keratolytic and sebum-regulating effect. Indicated for oily skin with acne and/or seborrheic blemishes. It can also be applied to areas such as the arms, back, knees and elbows.
Mandalic Peels - Stimulates collagen and proteoglycan synthesis, boosting skin rejuvenation. Due to its larger molecular size, it penetrates the skin more slowly than glycolic acid for gentler, more gradual exfoliation.
MODIFIED JESSNER PEEL
Broad-spectrum combined peel for treating dark spots, uneven skin tone and ageing.
Combined peels are exclusive peels formulated with a precise combination of chemical exfoliants. This synergistic combination of substances makes it possible to practically treat the most specific and common aesthetic disorders (hyperpigmentation, acne, aging, etc.) by maximising the properties of each agent to give an overall result.
14% Salicylic Acid has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, astringent and anti-aging properties. Lactic Acid 14% stimulates thickening of the epidermis and dermis. It increases the concentration of hyaluronic acid in the extracellular matrix, firming and moisturising the skin and 8% Citric Acid delivers exfoliating, antioxidant and anti-aging properties.
LUNCHTIME PEEL (DMK)
Instantly radiant, post peel skin, Lunchtime Peel also contributes to the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles and visible pores.
For time-poor people who still want the radiant and luminous skin that comes from a peel, the Lunchtime Peel is ideal. It performs a controlled micro-peel to reveal younger-looking skin whilst helping to reduce the appearance of fine-lines, wrinkles and visible pores.
