Chemical skin peels

Chemical skin peels at the Portsmouth Cosmetic Clinic, Spire Portsmouth Hospital

Reveal a new layer of beautiful skin

A Chemical Skin Peel can reduce the signs of ageing, treat sun damage, scars and blemishes and create healthier, firmer looking skin without the need for surgery.

A facial peel could help if you have any of the following

  • fine lines or wrinkles
  • acne or acne scars
  • sun damage, sunspots or freckles
  • uneven or dull skin

The aim is to rejuvenate the face giving you smoother, softer, blemish free skin. Multiple areas can also be treated at the same time including the neck, hands and upper chest. The peeling agent used is excellent for all skin types.

What to expect

On your first visit you can talk to your aesthetic nurse practitioner or consultant about what you want to achieve. You may choose to have your treatment at the same time or decide to come back at a later date – its up to you.

A superficial chemical peel is a minimally invasive procedure using an acid based solution to remove dead skin cells from the face and décolletage. The procedure is quick and there is relatively little ‘downtime’.

Deeper peels may be required to achieve your desired results and your aesthetic nurse practitioner will advise on the most suitable treatment for you.

Considering your first treatment?  Call for a chat or to book a consultation, which is always free of charge with the cosmetic nurse practitioner.


Chemical peels take between 30 minutes and an hour, and you will be able to return home straight away. Depending on the type of peel you have, your skin will begin to peel two to three days after the procedure, and the new smoother skin will emerge. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun, so sun screen should be used.


Why should I choose the Portsmouth Cosmetic Clinic for my treatment?

We offer you:

  • Choice of expert practitioner – you will see the same person each time you come
  • The clean and safe, professional environment you would expect from a leading private hospital
  • Flexible appointment times and free parking

What does my personal treatment plan include?

The plan includes recommendation about type of treatment required. It may also include confidential records of your treatment history and before and after photos.

Will I need to have further treatment?

Just one treatment will make a difference, however a course of treatments may be necessary depending on the skin problem and patient’s expectations.
