Chemical Peels are becoming more popular by the day, not only are they a fraction of the cost of surgical and laser treatments, but they’re also an astounding method of reducing the visible appearance of wrinkles, lesions and blemishes, with very little discomfort and a minimal amount of downtime! Treatments only last forty-five minutes and can leave you with smoother, noticeably rejuvenated skin.
Medik8 Chemical Peels are made from professional-grade exfoliating acids that can help tighten your skin and revitalise your complexion. Most patients tend to have a course of six or twelve treatments to ensure they achieve optimal results, however, you can also have a single peel if you so desire.
How It Works / What’s On Offer
At La Fuente, we are proud to offer a wide selection of peels that make use of Medik8’s extensive product range. All of these peels are composed of clinical-quality ingredients to ensure the best results possible. You can discover our Medik8 Chemical Peels below:
A peel that targets a specific region of the skin to stimulate the production of collagen, minimising blemishes, fine lines and wrinkles.
A peel that focuses on treating sun damage, hyperpigmentation and a dull or uneven skin tone, this can help you level out your complexion and achieve more youthful and radiant skin.
This peel is able to sink into your deepest layers of skin, effectively unclogging your pores and helping you achieve greater skin clarity. We also recommend this peel to anyone looking to reduce blemishes or control the frequency of their breakouts.
This peel has been designed with everyone in mind – it is suitable for any skin type or concern and can help visibly brighten and revitalise the skin. It is often recommended for a first-time peeler, or in order to maintain the results of another peel.
A peel designed for those with sensitive skin to help even out texture, diminish the signs of ageing and develop stronger skin in the process.
An extremely gentle treatment that effectively targets and lessens any impressions of age around your eyes.
Our Mono Peels are single-acid peels that provide a more bespoke experience to our patients. They are designed for you and your skin and will require a consultation with one of our medical professionals prior to treatment.
Am I Suitable For Treatment?
Almost anyone is suitable for a Medik8 Chemical Peel at La Fuente. We have a wide range of different peels, from the Sensitive PHA Peel for those with sensitive skin to our Mono Peels which use high-strength acids to help treat the most problematic concerns.
Prior to treatment, we ask that all our patients join us for a consultation. During this time we will examine your medical history to determine if you are suitable for treatment. This will also give you the opportunity to ask any questions or raise any anxieties that you might have.

Book an Appointment
Most patients find that the treatment is pain-free, though it is possible that you could experience brief spells of tingling or tightness on the area of treatment.
Results will vary from patient to patient, however, 24 hours after treatment your skin is likely to feel tighter and look slightly flushed. It should then start to flake around 3 days later, leaving healthy, smooth skin in its place. After a week or so, you should have clearer, smoother skin and a more consistent skin tone.
After a single peel treatment, you are likely to see improvements in your skin, however, to really see the long-term benefits we recommend a course of either 6 or 12 treatments.
There is no downtime as such, although we recommend that you avoid wearing makeup for a day after treatment and that you avoid direct sun exposure, making sure to wear sunscreen with a high SPF when needed.
After your peel, an aftercare routine will be discussed with you and a post-treatment plan will be provided.
