Chemical Peel Treatment in London

The chemical peel is a very popular treatment for skin rejuvenation. It allows a depth-controlled and even chemical peel to the skin. It replaces old, uneven and photo-damaged skin with a new collagen-rich layer. Over the years, the use of chemical peels have been thoroughly studied and have become an effective anti-ageing and corrective therapy against sun-damaged skin, age-related skin changes such as fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, skin blemishes, pigmentation disorder, uneven skin tone, dilated pores, greasy and acne-prone skin, and acne scarring.

The deeper the peel, the more downtime will be involved, but it also means a better result. A superficial peel is sufficient to improve skin blemishes, pore size, oiliness and acne. A medium depth chemical peel can drastically improve fine lines, deep wrinkles and sunspots.

What People Are Saying

A.O – Highbury

The venesection was painless to say the least, thank you for using local anaesthetics; highly recommended

J.H – Romford

‘I blast and cruise for years. When my haematocrit level went up, my GP did not seem to care and I couldn’t possibly wait for weeks to see a specialist. I am so lucky that to have found Harley Street MD through my research and it is the only clinic I have found that accept self-referral for therapeutic venesection due to AAS use.

Y.R – Vauxhall

I was recommended by my gym mate, I can’t thank you enough for sorting out my prolactin issue due to steroid use. You are a godsend.
