Why Chemical Peels are Important

Chemical peels, often called “skin peels,” have become a go-to treatment in skin therapy businesses worldwide. These treatments work by applying a liquid solution to the face that exfoliates the top layer of dead skin cells, helping to rejuvenate the skin.

Treatment Overview

Superficial Chemical Peels

  • How it Works: Applied for about a minute, causing a slightly prickly sensation.
  • Results: Leaves the skin looking fresher and younger.
  • Frequency: Depends on the peel’s strength and how long it’s left on.
  • Downtime: Minimal, with mild redness and tightness for a few hours.
  • Tip: Regular treatments are needed for the best results, which can also help you sell other treatments

Medium Chemical Peels

  • How it Works: Targets the top and middle layers of the skin, left on for a few minutes to longer, depending on the strength.
  • Results: May cause a burning or stinging sensation, with skin turning brown or red for up to six weeks.
  • Frequency: Recommended once every 6-12 months due to its intensity.
  • Downtime: Moderate, with significant redness and potential peeling.

Deep Chemical Peels

  • How it Works: Penetrates deeper layers of the skin, often causing a freezing sensation.
  • Results: Significant downtime with swelling lasting up to two weeks and redness up to three months.
  • Frequency: Typically a one-off treatment, not recommended for darker skin tones due to the risk of skin lightening.

Customising Treatments

Each type of peel is suited to different skin concerns and should be recommended based on individual client needs. Medium and deep peels especially should be administered with caution, and clients may need to consult with their doctor before proceeding.

Maximising Revenue

Superficial peels are great for building a loyal client base due to the need for regular treatments. They also provide an opportunity to upsell other treatments and home care products. Packaging these peels with complementary services can further enhance your revenue.
