What is the RAE Peel?
Following years of research and clinical expertise, Dr. Ali Ghanem designated this RAE peel as his signature skin treatment.
The RAE Peel provides a variety of benefits stemming from the synergy between the active bio-stimulating and revitalising ingredients we use. It increases skin thickness, stimulates collagen and elastin production and results in new, healthy skin cells. We are thus able to achieve a desired youthful appearance and improve many other face and body skin concerns associated with ageing.
The RAE Peel is pain-free with zero downtime, making it a wonderful peel option. You will notice a difference to your skin from the very first session, leaving your skin soft and velvety. Furthermore, you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment.

What is the RAE Peel for?
The RAE Peel is ideal for the following indications:
- Improving skin tone and texture;
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles;
- Cleansing pores and oily skin and reducing large pores;
- Treating acne-prone skin;
- Smoothing rough texture or hard skin (such as on the elbows and knees)
- Reducing pigmentation and sun damage;
- Improving vascular concerns and abnormalities, including thread veins.
The RAE peel is usually applied on the face, neck and décolletage. This may also include other areas of the body like the hands, elbows, knees and feet.
The bio-stimulation agents create deep tissue rejuvenation, resulting in smooth, plump, luminous skin. Significantly, the effect of the antioxidants induces relaxation in fine lines and wrinkles, as well as the formation of new collagen, the building blocks of youthful skin.
How does it work?
Most chemical peels contain TCA or AHAs, and are made simply to strip the outer skin layers in order to stimulate the production of new skin cells. However, at our London Clinic we use the RAE Peel, utilising innovative, patented biphasic technology that acts in a multidimensional form by delivering bio-stimulation via amino acids and vitamins. Additionally, our RAE Peel includes GABA, a lift inducing substance.
Our Peel includes the following active ingredients: Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA), Tartaric Acid, Citric Acid, Salicylic Acid, Lactobionic Acid, Gamma-aminobutyric Acid (GABA), Arginine, Proline, Isoproline, Sodium Ascorbate and Riboflavin, among others. This unique, rich composition makes it far superior to any other skin peel options available on the market.
The treatment is suitable for all ages and skin types, both men and women, and can be used on all areas of the face and body.
If you are pregnant or currently breast feeding you will not be suitable for a RAE peel treatment and will need to await the period of weaning your child before we can embark on a treatment plan.
During the treatment your skin will be thoroughly cleansed, followed by application of our signature cocktail of skin peeling ingredients on the treated area. After approximately 30 minutes, the peeling ingredients are gently washed off and the area moisturised.
The advantages of the RAE Peel treatment is that it requires no anaesthesia, produces no frosting on the skin or traces of the product after treatment. The treatment is quick, with results instantly visible.
The number of treatment sessions depends on the skin concerns treated.
We usually recommend two to three treatment sessions, on average, spaced one to two weeks apart. Maintenance treatments every few months are also recommended.
The RAE peel is a painless treatment with most people experiencing little to no discomfort either during or after.
Side effects from the RAE peel treatment are extremely rare since the procedure requires virtually no downtime. You may experience some minor redness immediately after treatment, although this usually resolves itself swiftly.
Some patients also experience some skin flaking and exfoliation between the second and forth day post treatment. This is easily controlled with a routine skin cleansing and moisturising regimen.
Skin will appear more youthful, with a smoother, plumper, robust feel. Fine lines, rough texture and pigmentation, including sun damage and age spots will be reduced.
Results are expected to last for up to six months, however, repeat treatments every few months, are recommended for maintenance of the results.
Cost will depend on the area you are treating and the number of treatments required to achieve the desired result. A bespoke solution and price will be discussed with our doctor, however prices start from £350.
