Prior to treatment, the skin is cleansed and analysed. Once the appropriate peel is chosen it is applied directly to the prepared skin. There may be mild stinging/heat sensation during the peel. Following treatment, skin may be red, tight, swollen or irritated. You will be given post peel instructions which must be followed to avoid complication. With light or medium peels, more than one treatment may be needed for desired results.
Clients with a dysfunctional skin barrier, sensitivity or those who have had intense sun exposure in the two weeks pre-peel should discuss the treatment with their ORA doctor in advance of making an appointment for a peel.
Allergy to any of the ingredients including salicylic acid (aspirin) is a contraindication to some peels. Please discuss in advance with your ORA doctor.
It is very important that you avoid using retinoids (vitamin A) and all exfoliating acids for 5 days prior to your corrective peel. If you have sensitive skin, we recommend stopping these products 7 days pre-peel. It is also important to avoid intense sun exposure for 2 weeks pre-peel. We also do not recommend having any other skin, beauty or aesthetic treatments in the two weeks before a peel (includes brow treatments).
For medium depth peels it is vital that you stick rigidly to the protocol set out by your doctor in the weeks leading up to your peel. Read our information leaflet here for full guidance.
We believe in a progressive rather than aggressive approach to the skin. You may experience slight heat or tingling in the skin but generally this is described as mild to moderate.
Little to up to 72 hours of redness and peeling. Medium depth (TCA) peels will come with more downtime which your doctor will discuss with you in advance.
Within 1 week of treatment your skin will appear more radiant best results are seen a week after completion of your recommended course of treatment. Adherence to the pre and post homecare advised will further amplify results as it is designed to nourish your skin optimally.
For the majority of clients we recommend 3-4 treatments, 1 month apart. Often we will create a bespoke combined journey for you that may include a corrective peel in addition to other stimulating and collagen building modalities. Every skin is unique and we believe in building protocols that are as unique as your skin.

Pre & Post Care
At ORA, the aim is not to look younger, but to look and feel good about yourself through every stage of life. We believe in positive ageing and the Ora Method is based on signature techniques inspired by the philosophy of restoration and preservation.
Preservation and respect of your natural inherent beauty coupled with the restoration and reversal of signs of ageing ensures natural and untouched results.
Our consultations set out the initial treatment journey. We view our patient relationships as a continuum and work together to help ensure your journey stays on track and that your goals are realised.
We are careful and artistic in the way we apply our treatments. We approach every client holistically and we don’t believe in results that are obvious. The ORA method leaves clients looking fresh, radiant, refreshed. We are the antithesis of frozen, puffy and overfilled results.
The ORA team is doctor led and all clients will meet with one of our aesthetic doctors at the start of their journey. There are four aesthetic doctors at ORA, each with an unrivalled commitment to the holistic approach we are known for and to achieving natural beautiful results. Each member of the team was invited to join ORA because of their level of expertise. We understand that a team of experts is stronger than its individual members alone. We are a truly collaborative team and believe that the best results are achieved by a multidisciplinary team approach., We often discuss treatment plans, share knowledge and treat our clients collaboratively. This means that our patients uniquely benefit from our combined knowledge and experience and we remain at the cutting edge of aesthetic medicine.
We have been lucky to build a loyal patient base largely developed through word of mouth and personal recommendations. We treat a range of people both women and men of all different ages. Whether it's the professional who wants to access innovate skin treatments with little downtime, the new mom who wants to give herself a selfcare boost, the bride/groom/mother of the bride with an important upcoming event, the busy mother/father squeezing in a moment between school drops, the post menopausal woman who wants to feel like herself again - we have looked after them all. The uniting sentiment between our Ora patients is the appreciation of our dedication to artistic, natural and beautiful results. Our clients return for our signature techniques that never leave them overdone, but rather, reveal their best selves.
