  • How do Skin Peels Work?

    Your skin naturally sheds millions of skin cells every day, but the shedding process can come to a screeching halt due to sun damage, genetics, or various skin disorders. The not too pretty results are unmistakable dull, dry, clogged, enlarge pores, blackheads, flaky skin, wrinkles, loss of firmness and uneven skin tone. To get rid of all that build up we use AHA’S (alpha hydroxy acids, such as glycolic and lactic acids) and BHA’S (beta hydroxy acids, also known as salicylic) exfoliants come in to play. Skin Peels use fruit acids such as Lactic, Mendelic, Glycolic and Salicylic acid which are from natural derivatives. The fruit acids in the peel solution penetrate in to the deepest layer of the skin, the dermis. This then speeds up the cell turnover which refreshes and promotes healthier, plumper skin cells and the action rejuvenates the skin. In addition, the acids will help to un-clog pores, reduce inflammation and regulate excessive oil production.
  • What does the treatment involve?

    Your skin aesthetician will start by cleansing your skin, this will help the active ingredients penetrate. Skin Peels are applied to the skin for up to 5 minutes depending on skin sensitivity, and then washed off. The sensation of a skin peel will vary from person to person. This is due to skin tolerance, skin condition, strength of peel and home care products being used. The most common feeling from skin peels are tingling, warmth and tightness. These all mean the active ingredients are penetrating the lower layers of the skin and are working effectively for maximum results.
  • What are the contra-indications to a Skin Peel?

    • Active cold sores, herpes simplex or warts in the area to be treated
    • Wounded, sunburned or excessively sensitive skin with the application area
    • Currently pregnant or breastfeeding
    • Dermatitis of inflammatory rosacea within peel area
    • Accutane use within 6-12 months prior the peel application
    • History of radiation therapy in the application area
    • Allergy to salicylates
  • Are there any post Peel instructions?

    It is crucial to the health of your skin and the success of your peel that these guidelines are followed.
    • It is important to use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and avoid direct sunlight for at least 1 week.
    • Your skin maybe more red than usual for 2-5 days. Please avoid strenuous exercise during this time.
    • Patients should avoid exposure to heat sources as these may induce sensitivity and swelling.
    • Approximately 48 hours after the treatment your skin may start to peel. The peeling will generally last 2-5 days. Do not pick or pull the skin. Allow the skin to peel at its own pace.
    • When washing the face do not use any exfoliating scrubs for up to 1-5 days.
    • The regular use of alpha hydroxy acids(AHA) products or bleaching creams can only be resumed AFTER the peeling process is complete.
