Chemical Peels

A good all-round treatment that helps improve many conditions

Chemical peels are solutions, which improve and smooth the texture of the skin by removing its damaged outer layers. They enhance your appearance and your self-confidence and may also be used to improve acne and acne scarring and to reduce pigmentation changes. The peels we use at Mirabel are gentle peels with minimal post-treatment down time. For optimum results a course of three peels is generally advised.

There are a huge variety of chemical peels on the market and we believe we have chosen the best available ones.


At Mirabel we use the alpha-hydroxy acids – trichloroacetic acid (TCA),  ascorbic acid and lactic acid and the beta-hydroxy acid – salicylic acid. These are all self-neutralising which means there is a reduced risk of adverse effects. The Easy TCA Peel is a medium depth peel that will remove the top layer of the skin to reveal a smoother, more radiant skin surface and reduce irregular pigmentation.

The procedure involves an initial cleansing of the skin followed by the application of the chemical peel for a few minutes. The whole treatment takes about 15 minutes. No anaesthetic is required but some mild stinging may be experienced. After the treatment the skin may be red and irritable with some flaking for a few days. A high factor sun block is advised for at least two weeks after a chemical peel. The results of the peel will be subtle at first but after three treatments there should be a significant improvement in the quality and texture of the skin.


Building on the strength of the in-clinic-only ZO skincare range we have two targeted peels that are suitable for most skin types and have absolutely no downtime.

ZO Stimulator Peel, also known as the “Red Carpet” Peel.

This is a must for skin that feels rough or looks dull, as it uses a unique combination of exfoliating ingredients to renew and revive the skin. With no downtime, this is the ultimate results-orientated treatment that would benefit any skin type.

This mild epidermal peel removes the top layer of dead skin cells in a 30 minute appointment. The treatment brightens, adds glow, evens skin tone, smoothes fine lines and gives refreshed, softer skin. Perfect if you want an immediate fresh glow or before a specific event, hence its “Red Carpet” nickname.

ZO Acne and Oil Control Peel

This is the ideal treatment for oily, congested skin as it helps to unclog pores and prevent further breakouts. With an extra step to the Stimulator Peel in the form of a mask which specifically addresses current spots their healing time is significantly improved. This peel works well on its own or as a compliment to the ZO Complexion Clearing range. There is no downtime and it is ideal for teenage skin.

ZO Hand Renewal Peel

The hand renewal treatment revives skin that feels rough and looks dull. With no downtime this is the ideal, results-orientated treatment. It can be a stand alone treatment or booked as an add-on to another ZO Peel.
