Prep products

Medik8 chemical peels require thorough preparation using a range of professional Medik8 skincare products. You can buy these at your consultation, to be used prior to treatment. 

These products promote Medik8’s simple CSA philosophy (Vitamin C, SPF, Vitamin A or Retinol) and work in conjunction with the chemical peels to enhance results and maintain healthy skin.

Following your consultation, your practitioner will inform you which products are right for you.

Aftercare: what happens after a chemical peel?

After each skin peel, you will receive a complimentary Medik8 Ultimate Recovery Bio-Cellulose Mask (RRP £60 for 6). The mask delivers a boost of hydration, enhances skin repair and reduces downtime between peels.

For best results, your practitioner will explain what to do following treatment and recommend aftercare products.

Medik8 peel aftercare products

Your sk:n practitioner will recommend a range of expertly-formulated skincare products that protect the skin following each peel and promote fast healing. 

Depending on your skin type, your practitioner will advise which aftercare products are right for you.

Can Medik8 facial peels be used with other treatments?

Close Icon

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?

Close Icon

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?

Close Icon

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?

Close Icon

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?

Close Icon

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? 

Close Icon

Your Medik8 chemical peel will take 25 minutes.

Can I just have 1 peel to improve my skin?

Close Icon

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.
