What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is an increasingly popular procedure that peels away layers of damaged skin to boost the collagen in your face, giving a smoother and softer appearance.
A chemical agent is applied to the skin, causing a ‘blistering’ effect before the skin peels away the dry layers to reveal fresh, new skin.
This procedure is often used to treat blemishes and signs of aging, and is typically painless when done correctly. However, if done wrong, this procedure can cause pain and irritation, as well as irreversible damage such as scarring.
Chemical peels aren’t suitable for all skin types, so it's important that you go to a professional, such as a GP or dermatologist, who can carefully assess your skin before you go ahead with the procedure.
What are the signs that my chemical peel has gone wrong?
There are three different levels of chemical peel that can be performed; superficial, medium, and deep. Superficial peels are often painless when done correctly and aim to just remove one or two layers of dead skin to help brighten your appearance - this also applies to the medium level chemical peel. These procedures don’t require anesthetic but will often produce a slight burning sensation when applied.
The deeper chemical peels come with much more risk, as they leave your skin sensitive and exposed which can result in infections if not administered and taken care of properly. Effects of a deep peel last much longer, but they also come with more pain and require a local anesthetic to administer. Patients who opt for a deep chemical peel and face issues may suffer side effects including:
- Facial scarring
- Reddening of the skin
- Permanent damage to the skin
- A burning sensation
- Permanent skin discoloration and/or post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation

Do I have a chemical peel claim?
Any clinician or practitioner that carries out a cosmetic procedure, such as a chemical peel, has a duty of care to ensure that what they are administering is done in a safe and sterile manner. The wellbeing of their patients should be at the forefront of their mind at all times throughout the process.
Not only will these cosmeticians be responsible for avoiding any complications that can be reasonably prevented during your chemical peel, but they should also provide patients with comprehensive information about the process, how it works, and the risks that could come with it. They should also be willing to discuss their qualifications with you and put you at ease.
If a clinic does not uphold this duty and you have suffered adverse effects as a result, then you may be eligible to make a claim for chemical peel compensation.
How much compensation can you get for a chemical peel claim?
The amount of compensation you will receive from a chemical peel claim will vary depending on the severity of your injuries and the amount of risk that was posed to you. The amount of financial losses incurred will also be considered, for example, if you needed to take time off of work as a result of your injuries.
The more information we are able to receive, the better we can assist you with your claim and give you a rough estimate of what sort of compensation you could be looking at.
Though we cannot provide any exact figures for your claim, you could potentially receive up to £85,000 for very severe cases.
Are there time limits on making a chemical peel claim?
In most cases of personal injury, whether it is cosmetic or otherwise, you will have up to three years to bring a claim. However, we suggest gathering the information you need and contacting us as soon as possible after your incident to ensure a faster recovery and receive the full payout that you deserve much quicker.
