Skin peels or chemical peels have become very popular in recent times to give glowing and radiant skin. We work with the AlumierMD range of skin peels as they have the perfect blend of medical grade skincare ingredients. We also exclusively stock the AlumierMD skincare range of homecare products which can compliment your in clinic treatments.
So how do skin peels work?
Chemical peels cause intentional damage to the epidermis and/or dermis in the skin with the goal of stimulating new tissue to improve skin texture and tone.
Chemical peels have been used dating back to Ancient Egypt. Cleopatra used sour milk to improve the appearance of her skin, according to some sources. Lactic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid) is the active ingredient in sour milk.
Chemical peels improve skin texture and firmness, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. Peels also even out skin tone, improve acne-prone skin and reduce pore size appearance.
Most beneficial ingredients for the skin tend to degrade or denature when placed in the low pH of chemical peel formulas. With that scientific information in mind, AlumierMD peels use only the pure acids; anti-aging, antioxidant and brightening booster ingredients are applied post-peel in our Brightening Accelerator keeping all components effective.
Peels remove the outer dead layers of the stratum corneum, so the booster ingredients are better absorbed when applied post-peel. Our multilayer process can be customised according to your skin profile and concerns.
Frequently asked questions about Skin Peels
What can Skin peels be used to treat?
Skin peels are commonly used to treat pigmentation, rosacea, acne prone skin, open pores, oily skin or dry skin with a deep hydration mask. Skin peels are also used for patients that want a boost to their complexion and for many of our clients form a part of their maintenance routine.
What can I do after treatment?
Following treatment your skin will be prepped for the day so you will not need to
do anything extra for that day. We will provide your with a post peel kit which
contains 3 key products to look after your skin following the peel.
How often will I need treatment?
A standard course of treatment is a total of 3 peels with 2 weeks apart each one. However with everyones kin type and concern being different a customised plan will be built for you on consultation.
How long does it take to see results from a skin peel?
Beautiful skin doesn’t happen overnight, and treatments take time to show results. A single chemical peel can provide the immediate effect of bright and radiant skin; however, more significant results in treating textural issues, fine lines and inflamed acne could take up to eight weeks.
Use home care products consistently and as directed to achieve optimal results. Just as you take time to exercise, you need to take time for your “daily skin care workout regimen” in the morning and evening.
