Practitioner Level Skin Peels
Our practitioner or professional peels are some of our most innovative and effective treatments. We only use brands who formulate with the most important skincare concerns as the highest priority and results driven ingredients to transform, revive and rejuvenate the skin.
Peels can be a simple, fast and highly effective way to achieve radiant skin for a special event and can also be used to dramatically lessen the effects of more serious skin conditions.
The most suitable peel for your skin will be determined at a consultation, for most peels, skin preparation is required prior to commencing treatment.
What is a skin peel?
A chemical peel simply removes a layer of damaged skin from the face to reveal a newer, healthier layer. The chemical solution applied causes trauma to the epidermis of the skin, which causes the outer layers to peel away. When the skin begins to heal, increased cell growth produces new, healthier skin layers that give the face a more youthful appearance.
How to achieve best results?
It is important to use the correct skincare products at home andhome prep, during and post treatment to clear away debris and reduce downtime post peel. Homecare regimes vary depending on your skin type and concern, but you will always need SPF 50. The amount of treatments needed varies on the type of peel and the concern, on average 6-8 peels are needed at 2 – 6 weeks intervals.
Does the brand matter?
Yes, different brands use varied formulations. At Belvoir aesthetics we use Mesoestetic and Medik8 to provide our clients with the best possible options within the industry to tackle skin concerns. We feel it is important to work with brands who continue to remain up to date with new innovative ingrediants. Please see below all different peels we offer, sorted by the brands/range.

Combining 6 Medik8 professional in-clinic peels tailored to your skin goals, plus an at-home daily skincare routine, prepare to be wowed in just 12 weeks*!

To enjoy a remarkable skin transformation at the end of 12 weeks; your ‘WOW’ moment. And the opportunity to maintain those results for life. If this sounds like a bit of you, have a read below of the typical journey and what to expect.
*Duration may vary based on skin type and condition.
A STEP BY STEP TIMELINE OF THE 12 WEEKS TO WOW:
1. HAVE A PRE-PEEL CONSULTATION
Your trained Medik8 skin prationer will arrange an in-clinic consultation appointment convenient to you, so you can discuss your skin goals together and work out the best in-clinic and at-home regime for you. At this initial consultation, your therapist will talk through their recommended approach to help you meet your skin goals. This will likely involve 6 Medik8 professional peels (spaced 10-14 days apart) and CSA homecare to use twice daily. CSA is our core philosophy for achieving Beautiful Skin for Life: vitamin C plus Sunscreen by day, vitamin A by night.
2. CSA SKIN PREP
Your therapist will send you home with your CSA homecare to prepare the skin for around 2 weeks before returning to have your first peel. At the pre-peel consultation, they will also take a photo of your skin from a few angles so you can track your progress over the course of the programme. You will also receive your 12 Weeks to WOW Skin Passport which is a printed booklet you should bring to each appointment which you and your therapist fill in together to track your progress and the treatments and peel strengths you’ve experienced. It’s a great tool to help your therapist tailor the very best programme for you. They are able to dial-up or down the types and strengths of each treatment, so your experience is truly bespoke to you. Plus homecare can be reviewed as and when you need top-ups.
*Duration may vary based on skin type and condition.
3. PEEL TIME
After 2 weeks of consistent at-home CSA use, you will return to clinic for your first of 6 professional peel treatments. You can read what to expect from a peel below. All Medik8 peels have Time-Release technology which means minor discomfort is minimised. Every skin is different, but many clients describe the experience as either itchy or just increased heat on the skin. You can ask the therapist to remove the peel at any point in the treatment, but we find the majority of clients are easily able to have the peel on the skin for the recommended 10 minutes which only enhances the results. Time may vary dependent on skin condition or type.
4. COOLING OFF
After the peel treatment is concluded, it is neutralised quickly by your therapist and cool, soothing gauzes are placed on the skin to normalise it as quickly as possible. You will then receive beautiful pampering aftercare with layers of soothing serums and creams tailored to your skin type. You will leave the clinic make-up free but with a Medik8 post treatment kit with everything you need to care for the skin for the next 3-5 days. Your therapist will advise you how to use everything to get the best results and book in your next appointment (if not already done).She may well give you a ring a few days later to check in how your skin is feeling and recovering. Be sure to update your Skin Passport with all this information too.
5. PEELS 2 TO 6
After 10 to 14 days have elapsed since your first peel, you will have your second in-clinic appointment for peel 2. Using your Skin Passport notes, your therapist will discuss how you felt the first treatment was, how it felt on the skin and assess what’s needed for peel 2. The process repeats every 10 to 14 days with another in-clinic professional peel until all 6 are complete. Your therapist will recommend top-ups to your homecare as and when you need them along the way.
6. THE BIG WOW REVEAL
After completing your 6 peels, you will be invited back for 1 last in-clinic appointment to review the process and compare your before and after pictures. As well as celebrating the results with you, your therapist can then discuss how to prolong them and recommend an ongoing maintenance regime to help retain Beautiful Skin for Life.
7. SHARE & COMPARE
If you’re as excited by the results as our other clients, feel free to share your before and after on our @belvoiraesthetics Instagram account and using #Medik8WOW. Now, how easy is that?
Cosmelan Melasma Peel
What is a cosmelan peel?
This is a very advanced peel for quick depigmentation action and is highly effective for melasma. If you are frustrated with dark patches on your face that have not responded to standard treatment this peel is for you, the peel uses kojic acid which safely reduces excess melanin in the skin reducing melasma by up to 95%, it also is a rapid lightening procedure adaptable to any skin type even the darkest of skin types. Not only is it the best treatment for pigmentation it can strip years off you making you look 10 years younger.
*Melasma is often permanent unless treated!!
How our cosmelan peel works?
Firstly you will come into the clinic for a consultation with one of our expertly trained skin therapists, were they will assess your skin and ask some questions to get a better understanding of what caused the pigmentation and which variation of treatment is best. The first step of this procedure is skin preparation and a kit that is part of your depigmentation programme is given to you to apply prior to coming in for your treatments. The second and third step will take place in the clinic, where your skin therapist will complete a mini peel for you just ahead of time before the high strength depigmentation peel. At your next visit the cosmelan 1 mask will be applied all over your face which will then need to be kept on for 8-12 hours according to your skin type, before you can wash it off at home. Finally following the cosmelan 1 mask you will be given a home kit which will then help protect and maintain your results, and 48 hours after the follow up phase, your at home treatment is started with the application of cosmelan 2, hydra vital factor k and moisturising SPF 50+, this will carry on being applied daily for up to 7 months to stop the re appearance of dark spots.
Give your skin that second chance, try our worlds N01cosmelan peel for a rapid lightening treatment to get your self – confidence back!!
Benefits of our cosmelan peel?

- During the first and second week after having the treatment, the skin will already show substantial improvement. Blemishes will diminish and the skin will look brighter and more rejuvenated however the skin will be very dry and flaky so aftercare products will need to be regularly applied.

- In 99% of cases involving blemishes or abnormal hyperpigmentation of epidermal origin, the blemish elimination process achieved a 95% efficacy rate, however your treatment after which you do at home is very important to achieve this and maintain your result.

Downtime: 2/3 weeks peeling of the skin. we advise to take 7/10days off work.
What is Global Eyecon?
Say goodbye to dark circles, under eye bags, drooping eye lids and fine lines. This treatment is used to fight the signs of ageing and fatigue in the eye contour area. This professional treatment corrects wrinkles, under-eye bags and circles, sagging and pigmentation in the periocular (eye) area.
How does the global eyecon treatment work?
This amazing treatment has been brought to us by the mesoestetic Pharma Group. Their team researched and developed this product until they were able to deliver a comprehensive treatment to combat the issues in the eye contour area.
Mesoestetic Global Eyecon is a 6 stage treatment which consists of 3 sessions of the specially formulated peel followed by the microneedling transepidermal solution in the later 3 stages and a crystal fibre eye mask.
What happens during the treatment?
There are several stages to the Global Eyecon treatment. The treatment consists of alternating peel and solution sessions to achieve incredible results in the eye contour area.
The first step of the treatment involves the application of the Global Eyecon Periocular Peeling solution. This is a very specific peel for the eye area that combines powerful global anti-aging, anti-fatigue and depigmentation products.
The Periocular Peel has been developed carefully for the delicate eye area. It targets all types of visible wrinkles: static, dynamic and gravitational and combines Azelaic, Salicylic, Lactic, Phytic and Citric acids.
At your next treatment, you will have the global eyecon periocular solution stage. This sterile solution combines ingredients with depigmenting and decongestant action on microcirculation.
The specially designed sterile Periocular Solution is pushed in to the skin using a needling device. This formula combines ingredients for a depigmenting and decongesting action, which improves microcirculation.
Crystal Fiber Eye Mask
Finally, once you have finished the course of the alternating above treatments, Global Eyecon involves the application of the soothing crystal fiber eye mask.
This hydrogel mask, containing hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and cucumber extract is applied to the eye contour to cool, refresh and calm the eye area post-treatment. The mask has been specifically designed for the delicate area of the eye contour to fight back against dark circles and eye bags. The mask works to depigment, moisturise, decongest and rejuvenate the skin.
Results and downtime
The results of Mesoestetic Global Eyecon are really incredible right from your first treatment. The best bit is that results are cumulative so they just keep improving with each session.
The treatment is very comfortable. There is no downtime, other than slight redness in the eye contour area, but this should subside within 24 hours which means you can get straight back to your day and enjoy your newly rejuvenated eyes!
