Peeling is a time-honoured treatment for sundamage, pigmentation and irregular skin complexion. By gently removing the upper layers of the skin with a chemical peeling agent the lower layers are “shocked” into repair whilst the top layers really do peel off. The medium depth peels that we perform at Bijoux have a recovery time of about 5-7days but the results are worthwhile. Most peels are a one-off treatment to reset the skin, after which other skin rejuvenating techniques can be followed, for example the Endymed Intensif.
