Physician-Only Chemical Peels
What are the benefits of a physician-only peel?
Chemical peels can target dullness, fines lines and wrinkles and other signs of photo-aged skin, such as pigmentation and rough texture. They’re also great for treating inflammatory conditions such as acne and acne scarring.
They work by breaking down the bonds between skin cells and causing exfoliation. Depending on the type of peel they penetrate to different depths.
Superficial peels penetrate to the epidermis only.
Medium depth peels penetrate through the epidermis to the papillary dermis.
Deep peels penetrate all the way through the epidermis and papillary dermis to the reticular dermis beneath. These have the greatest exfoliative effect.
What Can I Expect From Chemical Peel?
Peels work best when you’ve prepped your skin beforehand. If you decide a peel is for you, then I’ll work closely with you to get your skin ready with a selected regime of actives that work to prepare and protect your skin before your series of peels.
On the day of the peel, it’s completely normal to experience some stinging or slight burning sensation with the application of the peel. Most of the peels performed at Dr. Tranter Aesthetics take about 30 minutes total, however the application of the peel solution itself is only for a few minutes maximum, then it’s neutralised.
Afterwards you can expect your skin to look a little red (like a mild sunburn) for 24-48 hours, and then your skin will peel as the top layers are exfoliated away. The peeling process usually occurs after 5-7 days, but can take up to 10 days for deeper peels.

We understand you may have questions! Having a Non-operational cosmetic procedure, or deciding to make some changes is a big decision.
Rest assured that Dr. Tranter is approachable, honest, and happy to answer any questions you have.
Anti-wrinkle and dermal fillers can be used to address a number of skin concerns related to ageing. They can address lines and wrinkles and restore volume and structure to the face. They are some of the most widely used cosmetic treatments in the world and have been used for over 20 years in this area. Medical uses for anti-wrinkle treatments include migraine and excessive sweating solutions.
Please avoid consuming alcohol and taking medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, Gingko Biloba, or Ginseng in the few days prior to your appointment as this will help to minimise bruising. To ensure high safety standards, a thorough medical and medication history will be completed prior to your treatment.
Anti-wrinkle treatments are well tolerated and do not require any anaesthetic, most people simply feel a slight sting. Dr Tranter uses a topical anaesthetic cream prior to dermal filler treatment and all the dermal fillers used have an anaesthetic blended into the filler itself, to provide you with a comfortable experience.
Immediately post-procedure you can see the plumping and smoothing effect of dermal fillers. Anti-wrinkle treatments take 2 weeks to reach their maximal effect.
Dr Tranter values your time and her own. If you can’t make your appointment we ask that you please giver her 24 hours notice.
