The SkinCeuticals Expert Micropeel 30 Treatment

All of the above treatments contain a powerhouse of ingredients combined with protective antioxidants to restore radiance and brightness and leave your skin looking refreshed.
The SkinCeuticals Pigment Balancing Peel Treatment
Great for uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation and age spots. It contains a high concentration of Glycolic Acid with pure Vitamin C and Emblica. Due to its powerful exfoliating action, it reduces and diffuses discolouration while have a brightening effect.
The Anti-Ageing Rejuventation Peel
The BTN Signature Rejuventation Peel is an advanced anti-ageing treatment. Taking the basic principles of the Micropeel procedures, we have added in a pre-peel peel!
The first layer of peel opens the door to the epidermis allowing the second peel to penetrate deeper enabling superior results including improvement in the appearance of fine lines and also brightening the skin. It is generally recommended from the age of 55 years.
The pure Vitamin C component to this peel not only brightens the skin but stimulates lovely collagen production too!
As the course of peels proceeds, we have the option to increase the strength of both peels involved, customisable depending on tolerance, and therefore obtaining improving results at every peel.
The Men's Peel
This peel was created in-house for men because their skin does not deserve to be treated the same as women’s skin!
Men’s skin is structurally different with testosterone stimulation causing a 25% increased thickness. The texture of the skin is generally tougher and sebum production is greater.
So, what does this mean?
It means that we will not just apply a peel solution and accept that the results will be less favourable than on a woman’s skin! Our Men's peel involves a layering approach where we will apply a pre-peel peel to ensure improved penetration of the Glycolic Acid based peel. This overcomes the increased thickness and tougher texture of the skin effectively. We will also use products during this treatment that will complement the unique features of male skin providing great results.
The Darker Skin Peel
Although the underlying physiology is generally the same, there are differences between darker and lighter skin types. The characteristics of darker skin are nurtured in our darker skin peel.
Darker skin types are generally oilier and more prone to congestion due to increased flow of sebum.
So how do we address this?
We cleanse deeper than before any of our other peels creating a pre-peel peel with the benefits of Kaolin and Bentonite with a combination of fruit acids.
Do we leave it at that? Of course not!
Another general characteristic of darker skin is its higher susceptibility to inflammation which can lead to skin discolouration concerns.
Hyperpigmentation can be caused by sun exposure, as a result of previous acne and also pregnancy. It is one of the most prominent skin ageing concerns in those of us with darker skin tones, so we will address that too! The peel we use during this treatment gives all of the usual benefits of a chemical peel but also specifically targets pigmentation. It is a superficial peel as deeper peels must be used with caution in darker skin. It combines brightening (not lightening!) and anti-inflammatory agents to reduce uneven skin tone and improve skin radiance.
Advanced Professional-Strength RETINOL PEEL
It’s that word again! Retinol. Our Advanced Professional-Strength Retinol Peel is our most intensive peel that works to exfoliate your skin, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, help reduce acne and improve skin laxity while promoting a bright, even and clear complexion.
- Retinol which increases the thickness of the skin while preserving collagen
- NeoCitriate which enhances collagen to plump, lift and firm the skin
- Aminofil which targets collagen and hyaluronic acid to plump and firm the skin
- Bisabolol from chamomile to soothe and calm the skin
- Vitamin E for its antioxidant properties protecting your skin and the retinol
A course of 4 peels is recommended to achieve the peak benefits. Visible peeling and flaking usually occurs within 2-3 days after the peel and can last up to a week while the skin heals. If peeling is not desirable, we can adapt the length of time it is kept on. With the course of 4 peels, you will receive 3 full sized products which compliment your peel treatments and help to restore your skin barrier function quickly, leaving it looking healthy and refreshed.
If you are willing to commit, the benefit to your skin will be well worth it!

Expert Lip Therapy
Lips are often a neglected part when it comes to skincare. Lip balm can help improve the look of the lips but does not get down to the root of the problem. We do!
Our Expert Lip Treatment involves exfoliation with crystals similar in size to those used in Microdermabrasion treatments.
This is followed by application of an antioxidant to counteract the appearance of premature ageing followed by a masque containing Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin B5 to help infuse dehydrated skin with moisture.
Expert tip: Ideal treatment prior to Lip Filler to ensure tip-top condition before showing off your new lips!
Expert Eye Therapy
Our eyes are often called the ‘Windows to our Soul’. With such an important title, why are they not pampered very often? Well we want to change that!
Our Expert Eye Treatment involves an antioxidant treatment followed by a firming and brightening Vitamin C masque taken very close to the eye lid. We add some super hydrating serum to this too.
After this we will moisturise the area and protect it with a sunscreen specifically for the eye area.
Expert tip: Ideal for those that use wrinkle-relaxing injections around the eye area for an extra boost of rested radiance!
Expert Hand Therapy
If the eyes are the windows of the soul, then the hands are the giveaway of time passed! Our hardworking hands are crying out from some TLC whether it be dryness and fine lines or pigmentation and age spots.
Well, you guessed it, we have the solution!
Our Expert Hand Treatment rejuvenates through application of a peel. The peel can be left on for much longer than the time we would leave it on the face as the skin is much stronger on our hands. This also means we can use higher strength peels to gain optimum results. A pigment reducing product is used alongside the peel to improve radiance and luminosity.
Expert tip: This one is a no-brainer! Rejuvenate your hands to complement your beautiful face!

WHAT DOES AN AESTHETIC BTN SKIN PEEL INVOLVE?
All of our peels involve a thorough cleanse of the skin prior to the application of the peel solution. Some are then followed by an antioxidant treatment and an appropriate masque for your skin, concluding with the application of a corrective cream and lastly a sunscreen to protect.
Our Advanced Professional-Strength Retinol Peel works differently. This peel is applied to your skin and you go home with it on. We give you instructions on when and how to wash it off, along with an aftercare pack of products to use.
As with all our treatments, a consultation is essential as some preparation may be required to get the full benefit of the peel. During the consultation, we will discuss your skin type and concerns, your history of peels, your current skincare regimen, your medical history and any allergies you may have. This information will guide us on where to start with the strength of peel.
SkinCeuticals® peels are formulated to the highest standards of purity, efficacy, pH, safety and tolerance. More information on the formulation will be given during the consultation.
Generally a course of at least 6 peels over 3 months is recommended however the skin will look improved after the first treatment.
Our Advanced Professional-Strength Retinol Peel contains high strength Retinol. Studies have shown great results for this peel with good tolerability.
WHY DO WE RECOMMEND PRODUCTS ALONGSIDE PEELS?
Certain products are included in most of our courses of peels because they provide a clear benefit to your skin and enhance your results.
These are prescribed specifically for your skin type, concerns and goals so each client will be given different products.
A period of pre-treatment of 2-4 weeks is ideally required to optimise results of the peels. This pre-treatment can increase the performance of the peels, minimise the potential for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and also expedite recovery by aiding skin healing.
Some of these products should also be incorporated into the post-procedure homecare regimen for the first 5-7 days post-peel to aid rehabilitation of the skin. This will all be discussed during the consultation.
We strongly recommend investing in the appropriate products to prepare and nurture your skin throughout your course.
