Frequently asked questions about the I-Peel-L Bespoke treatment

Our approach to the I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments

At Dr Nerina Wilkinson + Associates, our approach is bespoke and tailored to solve your specific concerns.

Before any I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments, patients undergo a comprehensive examination, including a VISIA Skin Analysis and a consultation with a Skincare Specialist. This enables us to create a customized, results-driven treatment plan and track progress effectively.

Our expert team upholds Dr Nerina Wilkinson’s high standards, consistently delivering remarkable results using cutting-edge devices and products. We spare no expense in providing a safe and luxurious environment to address all your skincare needs.

Each I-Peel-L Bespoke treatment is meticulously crafted, focusing on an individual’s specific concerns and desired outcomes.

How do I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments work?

I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments combine two powerful procedures, Lumecca IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments and TCA chemical peels, to achieve faster and more dramatic results in just a single session. This innovative approach is especially beneficial for those with severe sun damage.

LUMECCA™ IPL is a light therapy that targets facial veins, sun spots, mottled pigmentation, and discolouration on the face, neck, chest, and hands. The heat generated by IPL stimulates collagen production, improving the skin’s texture and quality.

The TCA chemical peel is a medical-grade peel that incorporates gentle fruit acids for even penetration and cellular turnover stimulation. The patented Post Peel Mask, rich in antioxidants, accelerates the healing process, protects against environmental aggressors, and prevents skin darkening.

Together, these treatments provide remarkable improvements in skin health, texture, and appearance by addressing various skin concerns.

Who is the ideal candidate for the I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments?

The ideal candidate for I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments is someone with severe sun damage, including sun spots, mottled pigmentation, and discoloration. These treatments are designed to address skin concerns on the face, neck, chest, and hands. Candidates should be prepared to follow pre-treatment guidelines and aftercare instructions to maximize the treatment’s effectiveness and achieve the best possible results for their skin’s health, texture, and appearance.

Which areas can be treated with I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments?

The face, neck, chest and hands.

How are I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments performed?

I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments are completed over four steps and begin with a skin surface prep (cleanse) to ensure optimal treatment results. Next, Lumecca IPL administration targets facial veins, sun spots, and discolouration. The SkinTech Easy TCA Pain Control Peel is then applied to encourage cellular turnover. Finally, a Post Peel Cream is applied to aid the healing process and protect the skin, completing the comprehensive and tailored treatment process.

What are the benefits of I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments?

I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments offer numerous benefits, including stimulation of cell regeneration, reduction in acne scarring, and resurfacing the skin for a healthy and smooth complexion. They also improve skin texture and tone, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, and address sun damage. After assessing your skin 4 weeks post-treatment, your specialist may recommend further combination therapy or individual treatments such as IPL or a chemical peel.

How long does it take to see results from I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments?

After an I-Peel-L Treatment, your skin may have a slight glow and feel comfortable. However, it will feel dry and tight for the first few days, with possible swelling and darkened areas. Physical peeling typically begins on day 4 and lasts 3 to 6 days. It’s essential not to apply extra moisturizer, as it may hinder the treatment’s effectiveness. Results become visible within 1-2 weeks after the treatment, with continued improvement over the following weeks. When treating the neck, chest, and hands, the healing process takes 2 to 3 weeks, meaning treatment intervals will be longer compared to the face.

How many treatments do you need to complete a full I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments?

A full I-Peel-L Treatment may show significant results after just one session, as it combines IPL and Skin Tech Easy TCA Pain Control Peel. However, it is crucial to assess the skin 4 weeks after the first treatment to determine if further combination therapy is necessary. Depending on your skin’s regeneration rate, you may only require IPL or a chemical peel on its own.

How long does it take to perform I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments?

I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments typically take between 90 to 120 minutes to perform, depending on the specific areas being treated. This allows for a thorough and precise application of the treatment to effectively address your skin concerns.

How long is the recovery period for I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments?

The recovery period for I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments varies depending on the area treated. After the treatment, your skin may feel dry and tight for the first few days. Physical peeling typically begins on day 4 and continues for 3 to 6 days. When treating the neck, chest, and hands, the healing process takes 2 to 3 weeks, meaning the treatment interval will be longer than for the face.

What does an I-Peel-L Bespoke treatment cost?

The cost of an I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments treatment varies depending on the area being treated and the number of sessions required. Pricing is as follows:

  • I-Peel-L Bespoke (Face / Neck / Chest): R 4 500
  • I-Peel-L Bespoke (Face & Neck / Chest): R 5 800
  • I-Peel-L Bespoke (Face, Neck & Chest): R 6 300
  • Diamond I-Peel-L Bespoke (includes Face, Neck, Chest & Hands): R 8 890

The cost includes a full-size Skin Tech IPLase Mask and a bespoke aftercare pack with relevant product minis to aid in skin recovery post-treatment.

Is an I-Peel-L Bespoke treatment safe?

I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments are considered safe when performed by a qualified Skincare Specialist in a clean, medical environment. By adhering to these conditions, the risks associated with the treatment diminish significantly, ensuring a more secure and effective experience for the patient.

What are the possible risks and complications associated with I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments?

When performed by a qualified Skincare Specialist in a clean, medical environment, the risks of I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments are significantly reduced. However, potential risks and side effects may include:

  • Fever blister outbreaks in individuals prone to them

It is important to inform your Skincare Specialist if you have a history of fever blisters, as a fever blister medication needs to be started 3 days before the treatment prevents HZ activation.

  • Rare adverse effects such as severe post-treatment erythema, sterile pustules, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, severe skin peeling, and crusting. 
  • Prolonged photosensitization and severe erythema lasting up to 7 days post-treatment

While the majority of people do not experience these complications, it is important to be aware of these risks and discuss them with your Skincare Specialist in advance.

I-Peel-L Bespoke treatment: Before and After

We are passionate about providing results-driven skincare solutions tailored to each client’s unique needs. 

To ensure optimal results, a computerized VISIA Skin Care Analysis is performed, objectively measuring and mapping your skin. This is followed by a detailed consultation with a Skincare Specialist to discuss specific concerns and goals. Proper preparation and post-treatment care are essential for achieving the desired outcome. In the following sections, you’ll find essential steps to take before and after I-Peel-L Bespoke treatments:

  • Discuss skin concerns and goals with your Skincare Specialist

  • Skin surface prep (cleanse)

An excellent team who will tailor make a skin treatment plan for you. They are all extremely knowledgeable and professional and use all the latest anti aging technologies and treatments. Amazing attention to detail from the beautiful space to the follow up care kits and check in emails from the therapists. Really a five star experience.

J Anastasopoulos

I have been with Dr Nerina Wilkinson and her team since 2021 and the level of professionalism is unmatched. So are the treatments, they truly have a solution for almost every skin or aesthetic concern. Could not love them more!

A Davids

My experience at Dr Nerina Wilkinson has been nothing but significant! I feel that for the first time, I understand my skin. Thanks to the lovely Louné, that has created a specific skin plan and routine for me. I am 39 years old and struggle with Pigmentation and Skin ageing. Our goal is to make my skin look as fresh, natural and glowing as possible. I have the utmost confidence in Louné to reach my goal. I started my journey with them in January 2023 and my results after doing a Meline Peel are already proofs that I am on the best plan. I am excited and confident to reach my goal and cannot wait for my next appointment! I would definitely recommend their professional opinions.

T Strauss

This is my honest review. I was very sceptical when I made an appointment at Dr Nerina Wilkinson and Associates, I thought like every other place that has influencers going there that it wouldn’t hold up to its reputation. I was wrong! Very wrong. Dr Cindy Kerbel was incredible, she took her time to explain not only my skin but all the available options for my skin. She has such a warm and kind energy. You immediately feel cared for. Honestly you won’t regret going here. I cannot wait for my next appointment. Thank you!

J Bentel

To avoid prolixity, you know your people are undeniably unbeatable when arguments relating to your age arise in conversations (read online dating apps). Despite clinging to the ‘wrong side’ of 30, I’ve made peace with those who assume I am still at varsity. Between Marisa and Bernice (with a shout-out to Natalie (as well as the rest of the team)) my skin and jawline (and the rest) have never looked more delicious. And when the Finance and Facility Manager is also a vibe, you know you’ve found a gem of a team! In short, I’m addicted (hypothetically, of course) to the needles (in a healthy wholesome way, naturally) and am never looking back (in particular at old Facebook photos when youth was allegedly in my favour). Thanks for keeping my aesthetic *ish together.

A Wright

I am so glad that, at the age of 30, I finally decided to come here! Such a warm and professional atmosphere, and Chantel made me feel so comfortable and excited for this journey. After my in-depth skin analysis and consultation, I was very happy with the first treatment, and for what has been planned ahead. Thank you!

F Badenhorst

I’ve gone for 2 appointments so far and 1. the service is incredible, such friendly and professional staff, 2. I had my skin analysed and then also went for a skin treatment and my skin is thanking me for it. I cannot wait to go back for more treatments. Highly recommend.

N Jacobs

I recently went to Dr Nerina Wilkinson + Associates to help me with my Rosacea. Walking into their beautiful, tranquil space is transforming alone. I love that they have a signature scent, which smells amazing. Each member of the team is passionate about what they do and incredibly knowledgeable, whilst always staying informed with the latest in skincare, technology etc.

B Georgiades

During my extended stay in Cape Town, I (Black American female), visited Dr. Nerina Wilkinson + Associates to maintain my skincare regimen while abroad. I was fortunate to work with my skincare specialist to develop a tailored skincare treatment. Not only did I receive great service, but she also provided detailed insight into the current state of my skin and offered additional recommendations for overall skin health. Chantel was excellent, demonstrating both kindness and informative expertise, and the facility was beautiful. And overall, I did see improvement in my skin’s texture and evenness, but I still have a ways to go.

C Okpara

Growing up I did not pay much attention to looking after my skin properly, but after starting my journey with Dr Nerina Wilkinson + Associates it has become one of the most important steps in my daily routine and I am loving it thanks to their delightful, informed and supportive team. I have always struggled with broken capillaries and dehydration, but have never known how to go about treating it and preventing further damage in the future. I had my first IPL session last week and I am absolutely shocked by the amazing results thus far. I was very wary about leaving my home during the COVID19 pandemic, but the team at Dr Nerina Wilkinson + Associates not only made me feel incredibly safe but I was also treated like a true queen during my session. After the treatment I received a ‘lucky packet’ of aftercare products and Bernice was there at my every beck and call (as I had many questions which were answered in such a timely and gracious manner). She also recommended products that have made my face feel softer and more youthful than ever before and I can already start seeing/feeling a difference. I am so grateful to the incredible team and I look forward to a future of beautiful care and loving myself in my own skin.

K Fourie

Growing up in the US, I went to dermatologist after dermatologist, and each one said the same three things: I have acne, it’s genetic, and it could be a lot worse. When I moved to Cape Town a few years ago, I heard from a friend that I needed to go see the women at the Nerina Wilkinson skin clinic, so I made an appointment – but I didn’t expect anything different. I left their office after my first appointment with Kim and I had some real hope for my skin to improve. She changed my home care, worked out a long term plan for me, and even gave me her personal cell number so I could message her if things weren’t working. It’s been over two years now and I have never been so happy with my skin. Kim and the other women at the skin clinic form the kindest and most caring team of professionals and I can’t thank them enough. From scalp PRP treatments for thinning hair, to lasers and peels for my rosacea, I’ve tried my fair share of treatments at this office and every single one of them has been worth it – I can honestly say these women have helped me feel like the best version of myself!

A Newell

“I have spent too much money over the past 10 years in hope to sort out my pigmentation and skin texture. Visited many (un)professionals and bought the most mediocre skincare. I heard about Dr Nerina via a friend. My last hope and the best decision I made. I was introduced to the Me Line peel and their skincare…this is now my go to as my skin has never looked this good and healthy ever. Extremely professional team, Bianca was my therapist. If you are looking for skin changing results and are serious about proper skincare, you should visit them. It’s worth all the money you will spend. An investment worth it…”


“Thank you to the wonderful ladies at your skin clinic. I have always suffered from problem skin. They have over the last few months advised me on the correct skincare and through their dedicated treatments I am now proud to show my skin without wearing too much makeup.”

“Every day I look in the mirror, I can’t believe that this new skin in mine! I reached a point in my life where I thought that I would have to live with the consequences of the severe sun damage I have caused myself through years of surfing. Not only have you given me new skin Nerina, you have actually given me a new life.”
