Skin Peels

facialWhat is a Skin Peel? There are several safe Skin Peel treatments available at Refresh Skin Clinic, which can be tailored to your skin type and needs.

What are Skin Peels used to treat? A Skin Peel refreshes the appearance of the skin and can leave it looking smoother and more radiant.

Is the treatment painful? No. Skin may feel prickly or warm during treatment, but once ‘neutralised’ the skin returns to feeling completely normal.

Are there any side effects? Side effects may include redness and peeling. Sunscreen must be worn diligently to protect the skin from sun damage.

How long does it take to work and how long will it last? A treatment takes only about 30 minutes. A peel performed every four to six weeks gives excellent results for many clients and can also complement the regular use of other products such as glycolic acid containing preparations that can be used at home.

Professional results require a professional touch.  From personal skin analysis to clinical-strength peels, Cosmedix skincare peels will help you achieve your healthiest complexion ever.

 

CosMedix innovative and non-traumatic peels begin with increasing activity in the skin to stimulating the skin to make change happen.  Because of the increased activity of these chirally correct peels we recommend that all tomorrow’s peels have two weeks of prepping for best results.

 

Today’s Peels:

Today’s Peels are safe for most skin types and conditions using natural alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) to encourage desquamation and promote skin renewal through new cell growth. Today’s Peels are beneficial for problem skin, oily, pigmented and aging skin and may be used without any prior preparation of the skin. These peels provide an immediate improvement with minimum to no downtime, and will deliver a blend of nourishing and stimulating ingredients that include antioxidants and calming properties.

Pomegranate Peel – Antioxidant Therapy Peel

An antioxidant peel specially designed for epidermal leveling. This peel works to even out the top layers of the skin and mildly exfoliates while potent antioxidants prevent free radical damage

Blueberry Smoothie – Antioxidant Exfoliating Peel

A deliciously refreshing scrub that invigorates the skin with the use of a gentle acid. Active blueberry extracts exfoliate the skin to restore a youthful glow without visible irritation. This light chemical peel is an exceptional problem skin treatment.

Tomorrow’s Peels

With these peels skin should ideally be prepped beforehand. Expect some downtime.

Tomorrow’s Peels provide a more influential peel for skin that has extensive concerns with dyschromias, scars, including loss of the foundation of dermal skin structures. This system requires use of CosMedix prep products. The after care products are designed to exfoliate, stimulate, protect and begin the peel process. This stimulating regimen prepares the skin for deeper peels by increasing circulation and providing skin-building components. This process eliminates excessive irritation and prepares the skin to better receive the peel ingredients. An after care regime is recommended for three to ten days post peel to help with the healing process.
