sk:n's advanced and bespoke Innerpeels contain a carrier solution which means the ingredients work below the surface of the skin, minimising surface trauma and shortening down-time. They are relatively pain-free and highly effective; your skin is gently swept with a solution which polishes the skin to exfoliate it while encouraging collagen production and cell renewal. The procedure can improve the appearance of complaints such as lines and wrinkles, acne and acne scarring, age spots, hyper-pigmentation and sun damage. sk:n clinics offers several types of peels (salicylic, glycolic and more), each one specifically prescribed according to skin type and desired effect. Peels can also be used to refresh the hands and neck. After the first session, skin feels noticeably softer and looks subtly younger. A further three treatments will unveil even better results.

At sk:n a great amount of time is spent during your free consultation to discuss your expectations, however if you are not happy, a solution that dissolves the filler almost instantly can be administered, leaving no lasting damage or effect. sk:n clinics does not offer permanent fillers, due to the unknown long-term risks involved. sk:n clinics use only the most trusted semi-permanent fillers on the market and the experts at sk:n take pride in achieving a, ‘no-trace face’.
