Chemical Peels & Skin Peels

At our Killarney-based clinic, we can provide you with a variety of different paramedical skin peels to stimulate skin rejuvenation and resurfacing.

These peeling systems, as with every product we use, are supported by research and results from clinical trials.

The unique, controlled mechanisms of the skin peels we use ensure that the activity on the surface of the skin is limited, and the full effects of the ingredients are released once they reach the targeted layers. This helps to minimise surface trauma and downtime, but also boosts the activity in the skin to promote improved structure and function and correct your skin concerns.

We understand and appreciate that every patient is different, and we have a number of different paramedical peeling systems containing very specific ingredient combinations; this allows us to choose the perfect skin peel to target your individual concerns. Our extensive treatment protocols are created for every skin condition from acne to rosacea from dark eye circles to lines and wrinkles.

What does the Paramedical Skin Peel treatment involve?

Every skin peels begins with a thorough consultation concentrating on helping you understand the procedure, possible side effects, and the importance of after care. Your peel is then chosen specifically for your skin type and skin concerns whilst taking into consideration your skin’s colour and tanning ability.

After a thorough cleansing the skin is prepped and the chosen skin peel is applied. Once the peel has been on the desired length of time, it is then neutralised. A cooling hyaluronic acid based gel is applied to soothe and hydrate the skin. A tolerable burning or stinging sensation may be felt during the application of the peel.

Note: Prior to a peel, the skin will need to be prepared with certain products for a minimum of two weeks to ensure optimum and predictable results are achieved. Long term results and skin health are achieved by a course of skin peels, advanced clinical facials and are accompanied by a preventative, corrective and protective homecare programme.

Downtime after a Skin Peel

Downtime after a Skin Peel

The reaction of the skin post treatment will depend on the type of peel chosen. You may notice that the skin is more red and feels tighter than usual for up to two hours afterwards. The skin may feel tight or dry and you may experience mild flaking in certain areas for a few days. Rarely, you may experience crusting of the skin or slight swelling.

Appropriate skincare will be recommended on the day of your treatment to help accelerate the healing process, protect the skin from the environment and enhance your desired results. Your normal skincare programme can be resumed after day 3, with more active products being introduced after day 5 or when the skin has returned to normal.

Note: A reactivation of cold sores is possible so please see your Doctor for a course of prophylactic medication prior to skin peel.

Individual results may vary depending on skin type, sensitivity, age, and skincare history.

Skin Peel FAQs

Chemical peels are considered safe when performed by a qualified professional.

Chemical peel is a skin resurfacing procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layer of the skin and reveal fresh, rejuvenated skin.

Depending on the peel, the procedure can take 30-60 minutes. Around 48-72hrs after the treatment your skin will start peeling. The peeling may last between 2 and 5 days.

Chemical peels can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Depending on the severity of those fine lines and wrinkles, multiple treatments may be required to achieve desired results.

One week before your peel, avoid any waxing or laser hair removal treatments. 48hrs before the treatment stop using any active ingredients such as retinoids, acids or benzoyl peroxide. If in doubt, speak to your therapist.

It is best to let your skin heal for at least 2 weeks after microneedling.

Not all peels will remove blackheads. Choose BHA (salicylic acid) peels to unclog your pores. Speak to your chemical peel therapist if you have any questions on the right peel treatment for you.

Chemical peels can reduce the signs of ageing. By removing damaged skin cells, this then allows new healthy skin cells to grow in their place.

What Our Clients Say

I have been going to Claire since she opened 3 years ago for my skin. She is always so welcoming, friendly and beyond professional. There is nothing that Claire doesn't know when it comes to skin. I wouldn't trust any one or any where else with my skin. Highly recommend The Skin Lab, Claire and Shauna to anyone who wants to invest in their skin.


Had a skin consultation with Claire last week and found it extremely helpful. She set out a clear skin routine for me and was very reasonable when it came to choosing products. Claire was very efficient and organised and had my products sent out to me within an hour of the consultation. I would highly recommend the skin lab to people.

Roisin Begley

I highly recommend the Skin Lab! During my consultation, Claire explained to me very clearly what was going on with my skin, and importantly how I could remedy. Within one month of following her instructions my skin transformed, and it really has never looked (or felt) better. Claire is an expert and I really trust her advice and care!

Sophie Daly

If there were 6 stars The Skin Lab would get it.
I had been going to Claire for 10 months pre lockdown and my skin hadn't looked so good since my early 20s. I really didn't want to let all of our hard work in clinic go to waste so Claire has been working with me prescribing the most effective at home skin peels. They really are the nearest thing you will get to treatment in the clinic. I really can't wait for the clinic to open up again and hope up on that bed! If you are looking for a results-driven friendly & professional clinic then I highly recommend The Skin Lab.

Sue-Ellen Carroll

I've been going to The Skin Lab for 3 years having suffered with Adult Acne for 8 years. I've been to many Aestheticians and Dermatologists but none have come close to The Skin Lab. The level of knowledge both Claire and Shauna have is unbelievable and they genuinely want you to see results so they will not let you buy or try a treatment they know won't work for your issue. I can't recommend them highly enough.
