“I don’t think I could ever go under the knife, but recently I went under a scalpel! Now, before you think I’ve gone mad, I only had a
skin peel where the therapist used the tiniest scalpel to exfoliate my skin.

I had an AK Peel, €105, known as the ‘lunchtime peel” which I had at the Aesthetic Institute, a new skincare clinic. Used regularly, a peel will visibly improve fine lines, sun damage, hyperpigmentation and acne. With a younger boyfriend, it was just what I needed to keep me looking young.

Akademikliniken is one of the world’s largest private clinics for aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery in Scandinavia; the Aesthetic Institute is a new partner to the Swedish clinic. According to the makers, the Akademikliniken product range is grounded in scientific fact and based on the latest knowledge in medical skincare.
