A very popular treatment here in our clinic, and in our opinion one of the best facial peels available, this type of facial peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure that works by encouraging cell turn over. A chemical solution is applied to remove the upper layers of the skin. The process is very effective in improving the problems of a dull appearance and problems associated with acne and enables any new skin that grows back to have a smoother and younger appearance.
At Smiles we recommend using the Epionce System for facial peels to:
- Target the signs of skin aging
- Lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce age spots
- Reduce acne and Rosacea
- Minimises the appearance of scars
30 – 60 Minutes
Possible Side Effects
Initially sensitive skin
Up to 3-6+ months
With two different treatments to choose from, you can be assured that we can help you to resolve whatever is worrying you.
The process involves four key stages:
- Preparation to cleanse and sterilise the skin
- A 28% concentration of Salicylic Acid is then applied to improve skin clarity
- Malic Avid in a 50% concentration is applied to encourage cell turnover
- Finally a neutraliser is used to calm and soothe the skin
The Lite Peel
Using a concentration of 30% Malic Acid and 5% Salicylic Acid this is the less aggressive of the two and is perfect to try if this is your first experience or if you are considering face peels as a regular smoothing and brightening treatment. An added bonus is that no downtime is required.
The peel itself works in a three way process by:
- Providing a positive anti-oxidant effect
- Contains anti-inflammatory properties
- Promotes collagen production
The Corrective Peel
The individual stages or steps in the process can be stand alone treatments or used together. They can be customised by our experienced therapists to meet your individual requirements and consist of 28% Salicylic Acid and 50% Malic Acid. You will feel a mild tingling during treatment and experience some skin flaking the following week.

The Epionce range is specially formulated to be kinder to the skin and as such is far less inflammatory.
