Peels can be used to improve acne, skin tone and texture and reduce the appearance of freckling, pigmentation, and wrinkling.
Our range of skin peels are based on organic compounds such as lactic, salicylic, pyruvic and ascorbic acids which work with your skin’s natural physiology to regenerate and restore a healthier more luminous complexion with improved tone and texture. The type and strength of peel is customised according to your skin type and particular skin concerns.
Our peels range from micro peels, which provide the lightest chemical peel to rejuvenate and regenerate the skin to procedure peels, which can target deeper layers of the skin.
Prescription peels are medically formulated preparations such as Vitamin A (Retinoic Acid) and are used to treat specific skin disorders and conditions such as acne or sun damage.
The Power Peel is a combination treatment that combines the benefits of both Microdermabrasion and a Peel in the one treatment.
A Laser Peel is a combination treatment that combines the benefits of a power peel (microdermabrasion and peel) and Laser Toning. It provides faster results than using Laser Toning alone.
With chemical peels, the ingredients interact with skin proteins, causing them to peel, revealing the new skin below, and speeding up cell turnover. Other peels work similarly, but the strength of the peel affects the number of layers of skin peeled, the length of the downtime and the final result.
Skin peel treatments transform sun-damaged skin into youthful, radiant skin. They can reduce hyperpigmentation and improve skin tone and leave the skin looking brighter and smoother.
The cost does vary depending on the type of Peel. A Micro Peel costs $155 and a Power Peel, where we combine a Microdermabrasion with a Peel, costs $175.
Peels are usually part of a skincare program with home care products also being important. Peels, because they target the surface of the skin, can be combined with other procedures that treat below the surface of the skin. This includes combination with the REVLITE Laser (Laser Peel) or the EXCEL V Genesis laser (Genesis Peel).
The latest procedure is the combination of peels with the INFINI microneedling radiofrequency device, which is called the Radio Peel. This significantly increases the effectiveness of peels because the needling opens up microscopic channels for the peel to penetrate deeper below the surface of the skin and does need to be done with some caution.
For any skin peel it is important to prepare your skin, both to minimise reaction and improve results. Depending on the type of Peel and your skin type our dermal clinician will advise the best program, which will typically involve using some cosmeceuticals (AHA/BHA blend and/or Vitamin A) and a sunscreen.
Ensuring the skin is clean, well moisturised, and protected from the sun is recommended in the weeks after treatment. When dead skin begins to shed, do not touch, pick, or scratch it.
