Professional Chemical Peels
Medium depth chemical peels are highly effective in promoting skin smoothness and vitality. They also improve discolouration and soften fine lines and some wrinkles. Medium depth peels can be achieved with a variety of chemicals. The number of layers and treatments is determined by the skin type, thickness, sensitivity and overall condition.
Professional Chemical Peels consistently apply innovation and science in the development of effective professional treatments. The synergistic affect of their ingredients provides corrective and nutrient benefits while exfoliating the surface of the skin to help minimize fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and evens skin tone. The frequency of peels is approximately every 21 days then can be done once a month for maintenance. Your peel choice or selection will change accordingly, as your skin changes on a daily basis, a program will be put together that would best suit you.
If you are unhappy with age spots, acne scars, enlarged or clogged pores, fine lines, wrinkles or flaking skin, you should consider Microdermabrasion. This involves removing the outer layers of dead skin cells, revealing the fresher, younger cells beneath. Regardless of your skins condition, results will be seen immediately. The results are progressive and cumulative. The treatment feels like a ‘superficial skin polishing’. Following the abrasion, we will treat your skin with specially formulated creams that further soften and moisturize your skin, finishing with a treatment masque to help rejuvenate those new cells that will be coming to the surface.
During the treatment, a stream of pharmaceutical grade corendulum crystals exfoliate and gently resurface superficial skin layers and triggers the skin’s repair mechanism. Your dermis will form new collagen and elastin fibres and become thicker and more functional. Your corneum layer (surface) is thinned to reveal a beautiful glowing skin. Keep in mind that your epidermis surface is refined and smoothed out. After each session, you will notice an increasingly healthy appearance with your skin feeling soft, smooth and refreshed. Approximately 30 % of your epidermis is removed resulting in a better complexion.
