We have combined the BioSurface Peel Treatment with the new Dermalogica ExpertActive Treatments. The ExpertActive gives you unlimited personalisation combining the BioSurface Peel with the powerful IonActive Serums and high-quality equipment.
Dermalogica’s BioSurface Skin Peel is a professional chemical peel designed to resurface the skin with minimal recovery time. Its unique multi-phase approach powerfully targets fine lines, hyperpigmentation and acne to take skin health to a whole new depth. No scarring. No downtime. The unique, multi-phase approach works with the skin’s biology to safely slough away dull epidermal layers and accelerate cell renewal without inflammation and prolonged downtime typically associated with chemical peels.
BioSurface™ Skin Peel FAQs
“A chemical skin peel that works with the skin, not against it” – Dermalogica
How the Skin Peel Works
BioSurface™ Skin Peel works in sequential steps with the exclusive Biosurface Peel Application Method to synergistically and safely decrease surface roughness, treat breakouts, reduce fine lines and help minimise the appearance of hyperpigmentation in the epidermis and dermal-epidermal interface.
BioSurface™ Skin Peel can be used to help:
- Decrease surface roughness
- Treat Breakouts
- Reduce fine lines
- Stimulate cell turnover and collagen production
- Brighton the skin
- Minimise the appearance of pigmentation
- Reduce signs of photoageing, skin ageing and breakouts
Pre Skin Peel
Prior to treatment you are required to receive a patch test. If a reaction was to occur that would happen within the first 20 minutes, however we suggest that at least 24 hours lapse from a patch test to ensure no contraindications will result.
We recommend you should prepare the skin with key Dermalogica products 2 or more weeks prior to treatments. Prior usage will reduce any irritation or adverse reactions, and will yield the best results.

Post Skin Peel
Immediately after treatment; apply a broad spectrum physical suncream (minimum SPF30) such as Dermalogica Super Sensitive Shield SPF30 or UltraSensitive Tint SPF30. Avoid direct daylight exposure for 2-3 weeks and wear a 3″ wide brim hat if going in the sun is necessary. Direct sun exposure must be avoided to prevent hyperpigmentation.
On the day of treatment; avoid strenuous exercise or prolonged exposure to heat sources such as dry saunas and steam rooms. Increased blood circulation to the face will cause an increased warming effect, which could lead to discomfort (prickling, itching, etc), redness, inflammation, swelling or other side effects.
On the night of treatment; rinse your face with cool water and a gentle cleanser such as Ultracalming™ Cleanser, then moisturise skin with barrier-protecting moisturiser such as Barrier Repair. This will help soothe skin tightness.
Increase your fluid intake for 2-3 days after the BioSurface™ Skin Peel treatment.
You will likely begin peeling within 2-3 days. This is normal. DO NOT pick or peel at loose skin. This may cause discolouration.
Avoid using any type of exfoliation product on the treated area for 72 hours after treatment or until your skin shows no signs of sensitivity. If skin is no longer sensitive, Multivitamin Thermafoliant may be used to slough off peeling skin.
Continue to moisturise the treated area for the duration of the peeling process. Applying Multi-Active Toner, Skin Hydrating Booster or a slightly thicker moisturiser such as Intensive Moisture Balance throughout the day can help maintain hydration and decrease the appearance of flaking.
Once peeling and redness subside; resume the regular Dermalogica daily routine that has been recommended by your professional skin therapist.
If any of these contraindications are present the BioSurface Skin Peel cannot be performed. If the contraindication will clear within a few days or weeks the treatment can be rescheduled.
