At the Fiori Institute of Skin and Body we have Brisbane's largest selection of chemical peels. Chemical peels can be a solution for wrinkles, skin rejuvenation, sun damage, pigmentation, blackheads, acne, and acne scarring.*

Chemical Peels Before & Afters

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels can be divided into alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) peels, including lactic acid and glycolic acid peels. They can also be classed as beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) peels, which are also known as salicylic acid peels. Finally, high-strength vitamin A peels are also performed at the Fiori Institute, namely the Vita A Peel. We also use low strength trichloroacetic acid peels or TCA peels for skin rejuvenation.

Each peel type has its own unique characteristics to achieve a specific end result. We will tailor our treatment type of peel according to your skin sensitivity, skin condition, and desired outcome.*

What conditions can chemical peels treat?

Chemical peels can treat a variety of skin conditions occurring in both the upper and deeper dermal layers of skin. More superficial peels, such as lactic acid, glycolic acid, and salicylic acid chemical peels can treat conditions such as skin pigmentation, acne, and sun damage. While TCA and high-strength Vita A peels target the deeper dermal layers of the skin, which can treat  wrinkling and pore size.*

What are TCA chemical peels and what are they used for?

TCA chemical peels can be extremely useful for the treatment of skin pigmentation and dermal remodeling. With this type of skin peeling, we do expect exfoliation between days two and four. Our team at the Fiori Institute will always start at a very low concentration (8% to 10%) and recommend a series of four to five chemical peels for best results.

TCA chemical peels work via coagulation of protein and can stimulate both collagen and elastin, as well as treat the upper parts of the skin causing an overall decrease in skin pigmentation.*

What are glycolic acid chemical peels?

Glycolic acid chemical peels are AHA or alpha-hydroxy acid chemical peels. These are thought of as ‘lunchtime’ peels and can treat sun damage, wrinkling, and provide overall skin rejuvenation. There is no downtime following glycolic acid chemical peels.

What is the Vita A Peel?

The Vita A Peel is a specialist-strength tretinoin chemical peel. This is applied using a makeup base. This form of chemical peeling is suitable for patients who want skin rejuvenation but do not want the hassle of a daily skin care regime. This peel is excellent for the treatment of sun damage and skin pigmentation. This form of chemical peeling causes a delayed exfoliation of the skin, which may last up to four days.*

What are lactic acid chemical peels and what are they used for?

Lactic acid chemical peels are one of the oldest chemical peels known to dermatology. They consist of a low pH chemical peel that can treat the upper layers of the skin. They are categorised as an alpha-hydroxy acid peel and will need neutralisation. Lactic acid peels have the advantage of having minimal to no downtime.*

What are salicylic acid chemical peels and what are they used for?

Salicylic acid chemical peels are also known as BHA or beta-hydroxy acid chemical peels. This is an excellent chemical peel for the treatment of acne, congested skin, blackheads, whiteheads, as well as excess oil production. Salicylic acid is an anti-inflammatory agent and can be used to decrease the redness and inflammation from pimples. Much like a TCA peel, one can expect some downtime with exfoliation, though this ultimately depends on the concentration.*
