Discover brighter, clearer, smoother skin with Medik8 universal peels. Buy a course of 6 and you’ll get a Medik8 essentials CSA kit, worth £99, free!
For the best results, combine Medik8 products and a course of Medik8 peels to really see the difference.
Medik8’s philosophy is based on a simple CSA routine to prepare for your peel treatment; Vitamin C and SPF in the morning and Vitamin A at night, clinically proven to increase cell renewal and help the healing process.
During your consultation, your practitioner will determine your skin type based on the Fitzpatrick scale, recommend your products, and advise how long you need to prep for.
What are skin peels and how do they work?
Peels are designed to exfoliate your skin and encourage it to renew itself by creating fresh new skin cells. They also stimulate the skin’s natural collagen production to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Skin peel treatments use acids and enzymes to exfoliate away layers of the skin to reveal fresher, clearer, smoother, more youthful looking skin beneath the surface.
The powerful blend of ingredients in skin peels work to reduce the appearance of open pores, remove dead skin cells, target blemishes, acne and pigmentation, and visibly smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The procedure is used all over the world to treat skin conditions such as fine line and wrinkles, acne, hyper-pigmentation and sun damage – the results can be life-transforming.
What results should I expect from a skin peel?
- Rejuvenated, brighter skin
- Dull skin revived
- Removal of dead skin cells
- Even skin texture and tone
- Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Smoother, softer skin
- Eliminated pigmentation and reduced effects of sun damage
- Reduction of inflammation and breakouts caused by acne
- Hydrated and nourished skin
- Stimulated collagen production for plump and youthful looking skin
To achieve maximum results, our skin experts will recommend a course of skin peels depending on your skin type, tone and condition.

Are chemical peels right for me?
Chemical peels are right for almost anyone. The Medik8 range includes a variety of facial peels for all skin types – from sensitive skin treatments, to more powerful acid blends that target stubborn skin concerns. Following your skin assessment, your practitioner will recommend the best chemical peel for your skin type.
How long do I need to prep for before my chemical peel?
Depending on your skin type, you will need to prepare using your recommended Medik8 products between 2 and 6 weeks.
- Skin type 1-3: prep time 2 weeks
- Skin type 4-6: prep time 4-6 weeks
Where do I buy my prep products from?
You can purchase your Medik8 prep products in-clinic, after your consultation.
Where do I buy my aftercare products from?
Medik8 aftercare products are available to buy in-clinic.
Can Medik8 facial peels be used with other treatments?
Yes – you can have Medik8 chemical peels in conjunction with many other treatments. If you are already having other treatments, let your sk:n specialist know during your consultation – they will advise the best course of action.
Can chemical peels make skin worse?
Chemical peels aim to improve the skin, however, there are strict instructions to follow to get the best results. Your practitioner will let you know what to avoid in order to protect your skin and see the desired outcomes.
How often can I have a chemical peel?
The recommended time between each Medik8 chemical peel is 2 weeks. Thanks to the science behind Medik8’s CSA philosophy, your recommended product regimen will help to accelerate your skin healing process, so you can get the results you want as soon as possible.
Will a chemical peel remove beauty marks?
The Medik8 chemical peels available at sk:n will not remove a beauty mark. There are chemical peel solutions specifically formulated for this purpose.

Can you have a chemical peel after microneedling?
Yes, provided your skin has had enough time to fully heal. Tell your practitioner if you’ve just had microneedling, and they will advise when/if you can return for a chemical peel.
Do chemical peels make pores smaller?
The size of your pores is a genetic feature, meaning it cannot be altered. However, some Medik8 chemical peels can decongest the skin and clear up the pores, making them appear visibly smaller.
Are chemical peels good for hyperpigmentation?
Yes, in fact, hyperpigmentation is one of the most widespread skin concerns that requires chemical peels. Medik8 Even is a brightening peel targeting sun damage, hyperpigmentation and dull, uneven skin. For best results, book a course of 6 peels.
How long does a peel take?
Your Medik8 chemical peel will take 25 minutes.
Can I just have 1 peel to improve my skin?
It is possible to just have a single peel, but we recommend a course of 6 to really see the long-term skin benefits. While occasional peels will make a difference to your skin, an on-going commitment of having a course of 6 chemical peels will really deliver noticeable results.
