What is a Skin Peel?
The goal of any peel is the removal of the skin’s outer layer of primarily dead cells and the stimulation of collagen and elastin to tighten and firm the healthy layer beneath. This procedure can effectively diminish the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, blemishes and more with little to no trauma to healthy skin cells.
With different strengths and intensities, peels can target many different skin concerns. Superficial peels buff and polish for hydrated and radiant skin, while more intense peels can target more difficult concerns such as acne, pigmentation or scarring.
Do I Need To Prepare Before My Peel?
Depending on the type of peel, pre-peel prep may or may not be required. Superficial and light peels generally do not require prepping, but your skin specialist may recommend a basic skin care regime to optimise your results. More intense peels will require the use of skincare before and after treatment.
What Can I Expect After My Peel?
Once a peel treatment is applied to the skin, it penetrates to the desired level and begins to stimulate and induce collagen and elastins. The treatment will normalize the skin, regulate oil production and diminish free radical activity. After a superficial peel, you may experience micro-flaking. With the deeper peels, you will undergo a layered flake that can last two to three days. Most clients will see immediate results following their peel, such as improved texture, clarity of the skin and diminished fine lines.
Are Peels Right For Me?
Whether you’re looking to correct a specific skin concern, defy your age or simply refresh your complexion, a peel can be customised to fit your needs. A unique treatment plan will be created for you during your initial skin analysis with our VISIA skin camera. Your Specialist will assess your skin to see which peel is right for you and your goals. By identifying certain key traits — such as skin density and natural hydration — your Specialist can better determine the appropriate peel type, depth and duration for your skin.
