At The Garden we offer the popular Agera Rx skin peel.
Unlike other skin peels this is a non-glycolic peel with 10 years of medical research supporting its use to treat acne, ageing and pigmentation. The peel penetrates deep into the skin using its unique combination of Vitamin C, salicylic acid, lactic acid and citric acids. The skin is cleansed and an Agera Rx skin peel is applied which is activated by cold water.
This peel provides results without shedding, redness or irritation and requires no downtime so you may continue with the rest of your day. These peels work well with our medical Microdermabrasion and skin rejuvenation programmes.

The anti-ageing peel stimulates collagen production which will help to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles and leave you with a firmer, smoother and radiant appearance.
The pigmentation peel penetrates deep into the skin to reduce the appearance of discolouration leaving you with a more even skin tone.
The treatment is usually carried out on the face but can be carried out on the back and upper chest.
We also treat Hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating). Areas of treatment include the axillae (armpits) and the palms of the hand.
Treatment usually takes approximately 30 minutes but it may be 40 minutes including consultation.
If you are having an Agera Rx skin peel and Microdermabrasion the treatment will take 45 minutes but it may be 60 minutes including consultation.
With a peel we advise you not to use any prescriptive topical creams (e.g. Differin) one week prior to being treated.
We also recommend that you do not carry out any facial waxing 10 days prior to treatment. We will also not treat you if you are sunburnt.
It is recommended that you use an SPF 50 sun cream after treatment. Your aesthetician can recommend skincare products to suit your skin type.
The treatment is optimally performed over a period of several weeks and so the treatment programme ranges from 5-6 treatments scheduled 2 weeks apart for normal skin.
The Obagi Nu-Derm System from The Garden
Over the years, your skin has been exposed to a number of environmental elements causing damage that can reach the deepest layers of your skin.
Photo damage, caused by the sun’s harmful rays, is the main cause of the fine lines, wrinkles and age spots that you may already see or you will eventually see on your face.
As the number 1 prescription-strength, physician-dispensed skin care system, the Obagi Nu-Derm System can actually transform your skin at the cellular level.
By addressing the signs of photo damage and restoring the healthy function of your skin cells, this system is clinically proven to result in younger- and healthier-looking skin.

The Obagi Nu-derma system can treat the signs of photo damage and ageing as follows including age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, rough skin, skin laxity, erythema (redness), sallowness (complexion) and hyperpigmentation (discolouration).
As your skin ages and is exposed to UVA and UVB rays, the turnover of skin cells slows significantly, throwing off the balance between the growth of healthy new cells and the sloughing of old, damaged cells.
Additionally, collagen and elastin begin to break down, causing the skin to lose resilience resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and sagging.
Daily exposure to UV light then accelerates this ageing process and may cause uneven colouring.
The Obagi Nu-Derm System penetrates below the surface of your skin to transform skin cell functions at the cellular level and correct the damage within.
Using a specific dose and frequency that’s recommended specifically by your skin care professional for your skin condition, the prescription-strength system exfoliates old skin leaving healthy, new skin that looks and acts younger and healthier.
At The Garden Skin Clinic we offer Vi (Vitality Institute) skin peels.
Vi peels are virtually painless chemical peels working to deliver great results, using the most effective acids available.
Working to treat hyperpigmentation, melasama, improving skin tone and texture, reversing sun damage to the skin, reducing acne and acne scars, reducing the appearance of pores and stimulating collagen growth for younger looking skin, it’s clear to see why Vi peels are a popular choice.

Using the strongest and most effective acids available, the Vi peel works to remove the top layer of ‘dead’ skin, revealing fresh and new skin underneath, making skin look brighter and healthier, as well as helping to reduce things like acne, scarring and dark marks to the skin.
The Vi Peels tackle problems within the skin at cellular level. Due to the actions of the acids and vitamins, the peel works to help remove fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the size of pores and increase collagen and elastin, working to tighten the skin for a younger looking appearance.
The Vi peel is especially effective at reducing hyper pigmentation and works well to improve acne.
The Vi Peel is usually a one off peel but can be repeated if necessary for skin that is damaged or particularly problematic.
We will evaluate the skin to determine a treatment plan best for your own personal needs.
