Your Trusted Skin Peels Clinic in Edinburgh
Skin peels work by harnessing the power of naturally occurring fruit acids and enzymes to deeply exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin. The treatment stimulates new cell growth and collagen production, helping to reveal fresher, clearer, brighter skin. At our sk:n clinic in Edinburgh we offer a variety of industry leading chemical peels that effectively remove the top layer of dead skin cells and encourage skin to grow, revealing a softer, smoother complexion.

What’s a skin peel?
At sk:n, we use an advanced range of skin peels including Medik8, and Enerpeel which contains a patented carrier-solution, that drives greater absorption of the active ingredients into the skin. This deep-acting technology reduces trauma to the skin’s surface and increases the rate of exfoliation for improved results. Each peel produces a varying level of chemical exfoliation to treat different conditions, classified as light, medium or deep.
Is a Skin Peel right for me?
Skin peels can be used to treat a whole range of skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne and acne scarring, age spots, enlarged pores, dark areas and sun-damaged skin. Skin peels are ideal if you are looking to quite literally give your skin a fresh start. Book a consultation with one of our trained experts to discuss which skin peel is best for you.
Where on my body can I have a skin peel?
Our range of skin peels can be used for the face and almost any other area of the body. We offer specific peels for the eye area, face, hands, neck and décolletage.
Are Skin Peels Safe?
Yes, our skin peels are completely safe and undergo stringent testing on all skin types and tones: first by the manufacturers; then by our Medical Standards Team; and finally during the training of our practitioners. During treatment your eyes and hair will be protected.
Do Skin Peels Hurt?
You may experience a slight tingling sensation as the peel works during your treatment, but this is completely normal.
How Will I Feel During Skin Peel Treatment?
A non-toxic chemical solution is applied to the skin surface and absorbed, before releasing the active acid component, which then works from within the skin. This treatment can be used without any problems on the delicate areas around the lips and eyes. Some peels can lead to light swelling of the affected area or peeling of the skin for a few days after the procedure. A trained expert can give you the advice you need on the right type of peel for you, tailoring a treatment plan for you, to achieve optimum results.
What Happens After A Skin Peel?
After starting your skin preparation* routine then having your first treatment, you will notice improvements. Your skin will feel softer and look subtly younger. On-going regular treatments will ensure you get the best results. At sk:n we pride ourselves in delivering the best care, but also having a supportive aftercare regime tailored to each individual.
What Is My Skin Type?
Below is the criteria for the Fitzpatrick Skin Type scale, which we use at sk:n to determine which type of treatment is best for you.Skin Type 1 – Light, pale white tone. Always burns and never tans.Skin Type 2 – White, fair tone. Usually burns, tans with difficulty.Skin Type 3 – Medium, white to olive tone.
