We’re so excited to announce we have a whole new range of skin peels available!
Our new skin peels are by world renowned brand Medik8, a British skincare company that are known to provide “professional” products. This means they are only sold through professional outlets such as doctors offices, skincare clinics and medical spas.
Every clinic that stocks Medik8 has to be trained and tested especially on the products and their ingredients so that every customer is getting not only a personal recommendation, but the best knowledge surrounding that product and the potential results it could bring to your skin.
Here at Snap, we will be providing not only the peel range from Medik8, but we will also be stocking the full range of products too. Look out for our videos, blogs and posts about Medik8 products!
We will be providing a range of peels to suit different skin types and deal with different conditions. Take a look at our break down of all of our new peels to see which you would suit best!
The light peel is a mild peel treatment for those suffering with acne, acne scarring and lightly wrinkled skin. The Medik8 Light Peel performs by effectively diminishing excess sebum (the producer of spots), signs of ageing and light scarring. Salicylic acid performs the requisite exfoliating action, unblocking pores and clearing away dead surface skin to reveal an instantly renewed complexion. Areas of sun damage like pigmentation can be visibly improved, thanks to the inclusion of L-Lactic acid within L-Mandelic acid and Lactobionic acid. It is the perfect starter peel for lots of skim types and concerns.
After having a Medik8 light peel, clients are able to advance onto any of the following specialist Medik8 peels.
Light peel is £55.00 at Snap.
Anti-ageing Peel is an effective combination of acids to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and fade away imperfections, leaving the skin smooth and renewed. When skin cells are activated by the L-Mandelic acid and Lactobionic acid , they can produce more collagen and elastin.
We recommend this is used in conjunction with our Dermaroller treatment for maximum results.
Age Peel is £65.00 at Snap.
The most effective way to achieve a brighter and even skin tone, free of dark spots and hyper pigmentation, is to eliminate skin cells rich in melanin and prevent the darkening of the new skin cells.
Especially designed to target sun damage and hyper pigmentation problems, White Peel penetrates the skin’s pigment cells (melanocytes) to gently and effectively reduce the appearance of unwanted discolouration, for a more even skin tone. We may recommend a course of peels to really reduce your pigmentation.
White Peel is £65.00 at Snap.
The Beta peel rapidly brings acne under control and dramatically reduces the risk of future outbreaks. Having a beta peel counteracts all three fronts of acne by targeting each individually: blocked pores, comedones and inflammation. The Beta Peel delivers a heavy dose of salicylic acid and azelaic acid straight into the pores and follicles, helping keep the pores clear of cellular debris, therefore reducing the number of pore blockages and breakouts on the skin.
Dependant on how severe your acne or acne scarring is, we may recommend some Medik8 products to use alongside.

Our eye area is unfortunately the first place to show initial signs of ageing, with a reduction in tone and plumpness occurring as early as your mid-twenties.
The Medik8 eyePeel offers an ultra-gentle yet effective solution to treat these skin areas through enhanced cell turnover and regeneration.
The Eye Peel includes specially formulated AHAs that ensure the peel performs the requisite exfoliation, providing even penetration to reduce inflammation and irritation. It includes L-Lactic acid and Lactobionic acid also that work in conjunction to hydrate the eye area, alleviating excessive dryness and peeling and promoting a plumped skin around your eye area.
The Eye Peel is £45.00 at Snap.
SKIN PEEL FAQ’S
Do skin peels hurt?
No, you should not feel any pain or concerning discomfort throughout the treatment, however you will have increased skin sensitivity after the peel. We will recommend correct aftercare for you to ensure the least discomfort after treatment.
Will my skin actually peel?
Normally, for a few days post peel you will experience your skin being slightly sensitive but also a very lovely and glowy complextion. Sometimes after about 3-5 days you may experience a drier complexion and perhaps some light shedding in places.
How long is the treatment?
A Medik8 peel can be from 45 minutes to an hour.
Will I need to prep my skin at all?
If you’re new to peels, we always recommend starting off with a light peel. This will adequately prepare and get your skin ready for the other peels.
