What is a Prodigy Peel?

The iSClinical Prodigy Peel is self-neutralising superficial chemical peel designed to target acne, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone and texture. Best recommended in courses, this. treatment works to remove excess dead skin cells, reducing further risk of breakouts. The treatment consists of a prep solution, up to 3 layers of the P2 peel (depending on sensitivity levels) and then finished with a booster, again dependant on the clients sensitivity levels, all of these steps are applied using a gauze to maximise results.

How does it work?

The system combines resorcinol, lactic acid, salicylic acid, and citric acid to target multiple skin concerns ranging from ageing, acne, and hyperpigmentation. These ingredients are coupled with a powerful"booster", featuring an advanced form of salicylic acid, providing enhanced benefits when compared to other superficial chemical peels.

Preparing your skin for a Prodigy Peel

It is important to prepare your skin for the treatment to ensure that not only we can go ahead with the treatment, but that you get the best possible results. 

  • Avoid waxing, shaving & laser for 48 hours prior

  • Avoid Microneedling, Microdermabrasion or any other advanced skin treatment for 2 weeks prior

  • Avoid Fillers/Botox for 2 weeks prior

  • Recent facial surgical procedures in the last 6 months

  • Avoid Retinoids, Acnecide for 7 hours prior

  • Recent use of Roaccutane or Tretinoin in the last 12 months


Caring for your skin after a Prodigy Peel

The Prodigy Peel has minimal downtime, however you can sometimes experience mild peeling/dryness, sensitivity and redness in the immediate hours following the treatment. This should subside in approximately 4-6 hours.

  • Ensure to wear SPF every day

  • Avoid heat & exercise/activities that will cause you to excessively sweat (e.g. saunas, steam room, swimming) for 3 days

  • Avoid any "Active" products for 5 days

  • Avoid at-home exfoliation for 1 week

  • No waxing/laser for 72 hours

  • Is it painful?
    This treatment is painless however you will feel heat and tingling whilst the peel is in contact with the skin. This can increase after the masque is removed, however after neutralization, the subsequent application of the Rejuvenating 'Ice' Masque calms the skin almost entirely.

    £105 - however if a course of treatments is required, this can start from £260 for 3 subsequent treatments.
  • How often should I have a Fire & Ice?
