The AlumierMD® Glow Peel is £129 per treatment. For the very best results, we recommend a course of 4 treatments (£480 in total - £120 per treatment).

A complimentary consultation is required before your treatment can begin. During the consultation, we will discuss your aims and objectives, perform a full medical assessment, and customise the treatment specifically for you.

The AlumierMD® Glow Peel works by replacing the outer layers of the skin with new cells. To achieve this, the specially formulated solution (containing lactic acid, salicylic acid, and resorcinol) induces controlled injury on the surface of the skin. In order to heal, new tissues are naturally generated, and the dead cells eventually peel off. This process is highly effective in minimising the appearance of:

  • Acne - mild (occasional pimples), moderate (inflammatory papules), or severe (nodules and cysts).
  • Rosacea - redness, pimples, swelling, or dilated blood vessels.
  • Wrinkles - fine lines or deep furrows.
  • Hyperpigmentation - age spots, discolouration, or uneven skin tone.

There are many different types of chemical peels, with variation in overall quality and price. For example, cheaper chemical peels sold over the counter, or performed in conventional beauty salons, are often much less effective and can have unpredictable side effects.

AlumierMD® is the leading brand in medical-grade skin care. Their chemical peels use the most effective scientifically based ingredients, delivering unparalleled results with minimal to no side effects.

To add to this, we perform a full medical assessment prior to your treatment, and we customise each treatment specifically for you, maximising your results and minimising social downtime.

Yes. AlumierMD® chemical peels are ‘clinically proven’. This means that they have been put through rigorous scientific testing and have been shown to deliver results.

The results can vary from person to person however, depending on your skin type and the severity of your condition. At your Free Consultation we’ll talk you through the results you can expect.

Very safe. AlumierMD® chemical peels have been scientifically tested and are clinically proven.

However, although the treatments are very safe, they are not suitable for people with certain medical conditions, people who have recently had certain facial procedures, or people with particular allergies.

We carry out a full medical assessment before starting your treatment, so if you are not suitable, we will find out before your treatment begins.

AlumierMD® chemical peels are specially formulated to reduce irritation and redness, with minimal to no social downtime.

The main side effects are usually tenderness and increased sensitivity to the sun. If you have sensitive skin, you may experience residual redness, which can last 1 to 12 hours, or you might have light to moderate flaking in a few localised areas for 3 to 7 days.

In general, most clients do not find it necessary to apply makeup, as the skin will be smooth, hydrated, and radiant after your treatment.

The results are usually long term, but if your condition is more severe, your symptoms might come back again at some point in the future. In such cases, we recommend more regular AlumierMD® chemical peels and a strict adherence to our home care programme.

At your Free Consultation, we’ll talk you through the results you can expect.

  • For best results and to reduce the risk of complications, we recommended that you use AlumierMD® home care products for 10 to 14 days prior to your treatment.
  • If you are lactating, pregnant, or may be pregnant, consult your physician before receiving any treatment.
  • Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least two weeks prior to your treatment.
  • Avoid the use of retinoid products (e.g. retinol, Retin-A®, Tazorac®) and high levels of AHA and BHA products for approximately 7 days prior to your treatment. Consult your doctor before temporarily discontinuing the use of any prescription medications.
