At Illuminate we use a phenol chemical peel for this treatment, which removes lines and wrinkles, uneven or ageing skin from the area around the eyes.
This is a deep chemical peel that provides effective and long lasting results by peeling away the top layers of old or aged skin and revealing new, fresh and young looking skin underneath.

How does this treatment work?
The phenol chemical peel used removes the surface layers of skin along with many of the wrinkles, lines or imperfections that they may contain. This peeling process reveals fresh, new rejuvenated skin underneath.
What happens during my treatment?
Treatment is usually given while you are lying back. Your skin will be cleansed and the peel will be applied. After the treatment a protective bismuth mask may be applied to the treated area to optimise healing conditions.
Will I feel any pain or side effects?
There is initial discomfort which will last a matter of seconds.
Who is this treatment suitable for?
Anyone aged 18 and over with heavy eyelids or with ageing or loose skin around the eye area.
