Chemical Skin Peels Course Overview

(A fast and safe treatment procedure offers superb results and a high profit margin)


Qualified beauty therapists can now take their skills to the next level with our New Advanced Chemical Skin Peel Diploma training course.

A chemical skin peel treatment acts as a chemical exfoliant, removing the upper layers of skin and dead skin cells to reveal the fresh, new skin underneath. It is one of the most popular non-invasive skin treatments available. It is suitable for all skin types but is particularly suitable for acne, pigmentation, photodamage, uneven skin tone and texture and anti-ageing.

A chemical peel uses a solution made up of different types of acids (principally glycolic acid) to rejuvenate and renew the skin through increased cell turnover. Glycolic acid is a type of Alpha Hydroxy Acid derived from sugar cane (it can also be made synthetically). Due to its smaller molecular size, glycolic acid is more effective than other alpha hydroxy acids and when used correctly can improve the look and feel of the skin quickly, safely and effective with no downtime.

There are a number of different skin peels available containing different combinations and quantities of acids; we cover a range of peels up to 50% strength which are safe and easy to use with no downtime.

Earning Potential

A skin peel will reveal fresher looking, brighter and rejuvenated skin. Skin will appear smoother, clearer, softer and more refined. 

Pricing starts at £50 for 30 minutes.
