Peel away the signs of skin ageing and pigmentation

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel improves the appearance of the skin. During the procedure, Professor MacKenzie carefully applies combinations of powerful solutions to the skin of the face, décolletage (neck and chest), or hands to remove dead skin cells. The solution penetrates into the skin, causing dead skin cells to peel off. The new skin is smoother and more refined looking. There are many types of chemical peel preparations, and the right preparation for you depends on your skin type and desired results.

Three types of peel are used at this clinic.


Prof MacKenzie uses the Obagi Blue Peel Radiance™ Medi-Luxe to improve overall skin quality including hydration, skin plumping, evenness and lightening of pigmentation. A retinol peel with increase results.

This is a 20% salicylic acid peel with little downtime and mild peeling after around 3 days. A cocktail of patient specific ingredients will be applied immediately after the peel, e.g. vitamin C serum, retinol and SPF50.

It is important to stop treatments with vitamin A products such as retinol or tretinoin, also alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy acid treatments at least three days prior to treatment as this will cause excessive peeling. High factor SPF must also be used after the procedure.

As this is a light peel the risk of complications is very low. Clients with an aspirin allergy cannot have this treatment.


TCA CROSS stands for:

  • trichloroacetic acid (TCA) Chemical Reconstruction Of Skin Scars (CROSS)

The treatment uses tiny drops of very high concentration TCA that is most effective for deep but narrow ‘ice-pick’ scars. The best results are achieved when combined with other acne scar treatments, such as microneedling and subcision.

There is downtime of at least one week with redness up to several weeks.
