LA Peels are a superficial to medium chemical skin peel that can be used to improve more difficult problems associated with skin pigmentation, surface lines, and some acne scarring. Problems on the face, chest, hands and back can be treated with these peels which are suitable for all skin types.

Theraderm’s skincare products were developed by a plastic surgeon and are designed to offer a simple, healthy and safe way to rejuvenate the skin. Theraderm’s products are only available from doctors and other suitably qualified medical professionals, and combine the principles of medicine with nature and chemistry.
The Theraderm Skin Renewal System is recommended - this dramatically reduces healing time, when used before and after the peel. The Theraderm four step systems, combined with the LA Peel, provides exemplary results and a high level of patient satisfaction.
Theraderm LA Peels are medically classed as superficial to medium peels. They contain a combination of Resorcinol, Lactic and Salicylic acid, and are stronger than glycolic or salicylic acid peels alone. LA Peels tend to be recommended for more difficult to treat skin conditions.
The LA Peel is part of the Theraderm Skin Health Program and is designed to be used in combination with a home use skin care maintenance system to ensure the best results.
The LA Peel is a superficial peeling agent that causes exfoliation and peeling of the outer layers of the skin, leading to the reduction of wrinkles and evening out of skin tones. This is an ideal peel for the treatment of acne prone skin because it penetrates sebaceous plugs leading to better exfoliation of the skin. The LA Peel does not require the use of an anaesthetic, and make-up can be applied post peel.
Flaking using occurs two to three days after the treatment and can be easily removed by the NuPeel exfoliating gel. This peel can be used for all skin types.

What is the down time following the LA peel?
Only mild discomfort is experienced during the peel and in the days following the procedure. You will expect maximum peeling to occur at day 3 or 4 following the procedure. Although this is not uncomfortable, if you have a cosmetically sensitive job or work in a dusty environment, you might want to bear this in mind and make arrangements before the treatment.
Can I do the LA peel without using the Theraderm products beforehand?
No! As these peels are medical treatments, and can only be performed by qualified doctors, they treat the deeper areas of the skin. Lack of the appropriate preparation may result in patchy or sub-optimal results and may also increase the possibility of ensuing complications.
Following the LA peel, how long must I stay out of the sun?
We recommend that you avoid sun exposure for about 2 weeks, and that you use sun protection (at least SPF 30) at all times.
What are the contra-indications to the LA peel?
Pregnant and breast-feeding women, allergies or adverse reaction to known products in the peel (we routinely perform a patch test).

All my questions were addressed, treatment options, outcomes, potential side effects and after-care instructions were very clear. And the procedure was far less painful than I had imagined!
A gentle hand… you might have very possibly cured my needle-phobia finally! And thank goodness, as everybody thinks I’m looking younger and fresher now!
A clinic that insists on natural results! Fabulous! Now I’m loving the compliments.
Dr Raina has been my doctor for the last 18 months, and she will be for many months longer.
Recently my 20 year old daughter (who has beautiful full lips) told me she wanted to get her lips enlarged and that she had already spoken to another doctor about it, who was willing to do it for her. I took her along with me to discuss it with Dr Raina who explained to her that her natural lips are very nice and in proportion with the rest of her face. She mentioned that more volume will ruin the proportions and she would look ‘done’. We are both very grateful for the honesty there.
A very professional, honest and straightforward doctor with surgical skills to match! My right earlobe split 6 years ago, and I was too anxious to have it repaired.
Now, I have no idea why I didn’t get it done sooner!
After discussing the pros and cons of removing the mole on my face, I finally underwent the procedure. Three months on, I am very pleased with the result. I appreciate the no frills honesty and straightforwardness.
Highly professional… I will certainly be recommending you!
