March - April - May Autumn - Time to do some Peeling!

Posted by

Skin Peels have been around for a long time, and they have come a long way due to the advances in technology, ingredients and techniques. Peels are not a one size fits all, they are very much a personalised process to ensure we make them work best for your individual needs.

There is no single peel that works for every person.

HA’s and Glycolic are mainly used to remove dead skin cells from the surface. They are designed to smooth texture and they can start cellular rebuilding of collagen and elastin. The level of this will depend greatly on the pH and concentration %.

Lactic Acid peels are designed to change the behaviour of the Stratum Corneum. The outmost layer of the epidermis, consisting of dead skin cells. This layer is composed of 15-20 layers of fattened cells.

Lactic Acid Peels - Set up an enhanced barrier function, which may yield a more hydrated surface for some time after the peel.

BHA’s Salicylic Acid - works in different ways depending on dose and pH. It can work as an anti inflammatory; an exfoliant and for oil balance.

ICA Peels - (Techloroacetic Acid) can smooth skin, fine lines and wrinkles and slowly start to depigment skin.

Retinol and Retinoic Acid - Peel additives and can help to normalise epidermal; skin turnover and lighten skin as it decreases Melanin

Personalising Peels is not a ‘Slap Together Process’ it is definitely not for an Amateur and should not be administered by those untrained.

It involves an understanding of skin anatomy.

Facial, neck and décolleté skin varies in thickness and sensitivity to peels.

The roughest part of the skin is usually the forehead. Thinner more sensitive parts of the face, eye area, neck and parts of the décolleté.

Most oil is produced in Sebaceous glands which are in the chin, sides of nose and glabellas area between the brows.

Pigmentation mainly found on the bridge if the nose and across the cheeks and the upper forehead on both sides. With this insight you can see how Peels must be chose depending on your individual needs.

Time to do some Peeling!

A consultation is important to ensure your expectations are discussed, we have covered any contraindications and we need to constantly sure that there is no change for the future treatments.

Duty of Care is extremely important and something we don’t take lightly.

When we are deciding what is the last peel for you we take into consideration what you, the client, wants to manage i.e. -

  • Uneven tone
  • Tough Texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Small pigment spots
  • Post Care with Peels
