Dermaquest Skin Peels
Would you like to revive your skin back to how it used to look before you had wrinkles, fine lines or sun damaged skin? Do you have acne scarring or ongoing acne breakouts leaving your skin appearance in a state you wish you could reverse?
Skin Peels, like Microdermabrasion, are a very popular non invasive treatment designed and formulated to address all of the skin concerns above.
The treatment consists of some home care products which you must first use for two weeks to prepare your skin for the in-salon treatment.
The peel works by applying specific solutions into the skin to remove dead and damaged skin cells, allowing for new and healthy cells to surface. The application of the solution causes the outer layers of the skin to peel away, hence the name. The treatment is painless and side-effects are limited to possible redness or swelling of the area as well as peeling of the skin for a few days following the treatment dependant on the type of solution used.
All skin peels are completely safe and can also be carried out on your neck, hands and feet
Below is a list of the peels we offer and the skin concern they work best against. For optimum results, the peels should be carried out in a course of 3 treatments. Our therapists can also advise you on the best peel for your skin type so feel free to call in salon or email us today.
Glycolic Acid Peel
A mild peel used to treat a range of skin problems including acne, sun damaged skin and signs of aging skin. Though your skin may feel a little sensitive following the treatment, there is usually no recovery or downtime required.
Salicyclic Acid Peel
A light peel for acne, fine lines, wrinkles and sensitive skin. As the peel is not as heavy as others, there is no downtime required for recovery.
A light to medium peel, it has been designed to comprehensively manage acne, preventing persistent breakouts and reducing acne scarring and general pigmentation. Jessner peels also perform excellently against blemishes or oily skin, clearing blocked pores and often lessening oil production.
The heaviest of our peels, the TCA peel works best in fixing skin discolouration and uneven pigmentation as well as the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles and scars. You will physically see your skin peel following the treatment so a healing period of one to two weeks should be allowed.
