Chemical Peels

Bio-Glycolic Peel (25%)

A glycolic treatment has a hygroscopic effect – the skin tends to increase inherent moisture levels from the environment, improving suppleness of the skin and the glycol-aminoglycans in the lower area of the dermis.

Uses of the Bio Glycolic Peel:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun spots
  • Poor hydration
  • Slow, sluggish skin cell turnover (poor natural exfoliation)
  • Superficial pigmentation
  • Dull, dry, tired skin

Skin prep

Before a glycolic peel is applied to the skin, the skin will be cleansed. A prep solution will be applied to the face to ensure that the face is clean, oil free and primed. This will also ensure that the peel does not penetrate too far into the skin. The peel will then be applied to the skin and a timer will be set.

What can I expect after having this peel?

During the procedure itself, the peel may feel quite active and “tingly” (some patients describe the sensation as a mild sting while the peel is active). In some cases, mild frosting.
Immediately after the peel, the skin may appear quite pink and in most cases, the skin may feel somewhat tight and “itchy”.

Summary

  • Interval:2-4 weeks
  • Procedure Time: 35 mins
  • For best results: 4-6
  • Skin Specialist:Therapist

Is it safe for all skin types?

All skin types can benefit from this peel, but contact time will differ slightly on skin types 5 and 6, due to the sensitive and reactive nature of these skin types. This peel is excellent for general skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing.

Bio-Lactic Peel (45%)

Lactic acid peels are a type of chemical peel that is made from AHA (alpha hydroxy acids). They are very mild as they are derived from milk, with a very small chance of an allergic reaction happening. If one has sensitive skin or has never done a chemical peel before, a lactic acid peel is a wonderful choice.

Uses of the Bio-Lactic Peel?

  • Stimulate natural collagen production,
  • Evens out the skin tone
  • Improve hyper pigmentation of the skin
  • Fade dark spots
  • Brighten and lighten the skin
  • Improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Improve acne and dry up oily skin.
  • Exfoliate the surface of the skin,
  • Deep cleaning the pores.

Skin Prep

Before a lactic acid peel is applied to the skin, the skin will be cleansed. A prep solution will be applied to the face to ensure that the face is clean, oil free and primed. This will also ensure that the peel does not penetrate too far into the skin. The peel will then be applied to the skin and a timer will be set.

Recovery

After a lactic acid peel, the skin will be very sensitive. It is a good idea to wear sunscreen after the peel and to avoid the sun if possible. Wearing wide brimmed hats and sunglasses with the sunscreen add extra protection. Should the skin see any itching or redness, one should let their dermatologist know.
