What exactly are skin peels?
Skin peels use an application of safe and specially blended medical grade chemicals to gently remove the top layer of damaged and dead skin cells. This stimulates cell turnover rate and improves the appearance of a variety of skin issues. Different solutions of peels can be used to target different skin issues. The progressive, not aggressive approach!
The result is smoother, brighter, more even looking, youthful skin.
What are skin peels used for?
Skin peels can effectively reduce the appearance of the following:
Age, sunspots and hyper-pigmentation
Enlarged and clogged pores
Scarring and stretch marks
Flaking and dry skin
How many treatments will I need?
You will notice an improvement after one peel, but best results are obtained by having 3 - 6 treatments every 2 - 4 weeks.
Who should NOT have skin peels?
There are a number of contra-indications for skin peels, for example open wounds and lesions, some medications, cancer and auto-immune disease. Peels should also avoided by pregant women. I will take a medical history at your skin consultation.
What should I do before my treatment?
All of my Skin Correction treatments ideally start with healthy and well hydrated skin. A good skincare regime, good nutrition, and plenty of water in the weeks before treatment will help ensure the best outcome for you.
Additionally, the week before your skin peel treatment, you will need to stop topical Retin A use, sun exposure, home needling treatment and injectable treatments like Botox and fillers.
What should I do after my treatment?
Avoid any exfoliating for at least 5 - 10 days.
You will be given full aftercare instructions at the time of your treatment, which will include the following:
Avoid active skincare products for 3-4 days after treatment.
Use the skin products recommended.
Avoid sun exposure, and protect your skin with sunscreen and regular re-application.
Avoid excessive exercise, including swimming, spa or sauna for 24 hours after treatment.
Stay well hydrated.
