Visible Results – For all Skin Types – Minimum Downtime – Mild Skin Peeling

Medik8 agePeel

A fantastic Anti-Aging peel that contains an effective combination of acids to reduce lines and wrinkles, and fade away imperfections leaving the skin smooth and renewed. The stimulation you receive from a chemical peel can increase the production of many key elements that make up a youthful looking complexion. When skin cells are stimulated, they are encouraged to produce more collagen and elastin. Rich in L-Mandelic acid and Lactobionic acid, this Anti -Aging Peel is the perfect peel to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.

Medik8 betaPeel

Rapidly brings acne under control and dramatically reduces the risk of future outbreaks. betaPeel counteracts all three fronts of acne by targeting each assault individually: blocked pores, comedones and inflammation. betaPeel delivers a heavy dose of salicylic acid straight into the pores and follicles, helping keep the pores clear of cellular debris therefore reducing the number of pore blockages and breakouts on the skin. Key Ingredients are Azelaic Acid and Salicylic Acid

The Acids contained in the peels are:

L-Mandelic Acid – A mild and effective alpha-hydroxy acid, is often compared to glycolic acid for the results it provides without the negative effect: less redness, less downtime.

Lactobionic Acid – A superb multi-tasking PHA which works as an exfoliant, antioxidant and humectant.

Azelaic Acid – Is highly effective against the bacteria responsible for inflammatory acne (propionibacterium acnes).

Salicylic Acid – A widely used gentle BHA that unlocks pore and clears away dead skin cells, preventing congestion.

Chemical Facial Peels: Glycolic

What is Glycolic?

Glycolic Acid is the naturally occurring, non-toxic Alpha Hydroxy Acid derived from sugar cane, and is used to treat many skin problems that are associated with an excessive build up of dead skin cells, which make the skin thick, dull and is a cause of blocked pores.

What are Glycolic peels?

A Glycolic Peel is a unique treatment which penetrates down to the deeper living layers of the skin to eliminate dead skin build up to allow the skin to glow with health. Pores are deeply cleansed and impurities are removed. The skin moisture levels and natural Collagen production are improved, resulting in a clear and bright complexion with firmed and toned contours. Glycolic peels are suitable for the face & neck, back, hands and chest.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

A course of 4-6 treatments are recommended 1 to 2 weeks apart for maximum results. Other treatments of Microdermabrasion and Intense Pulsed Light may also be incorporated into the treatment plan to further enhance the results.

Do I need to prepare my skin?

Following a consultation with a skin specialist you will be advised to use the prescribed MD Formulations products for at least 2 weeks prior to the first peel to prepare the skin properly.

What are the Possible Side Effects?

True allergic reaction to the product is very rare. Slight redness and mild flaking is common following the treatment and this is why the skin is prepared prior to peeling. You may experience a mild tingling or stinging sensation when the peel is applied to your skin. This is normal and subsides very quickly depending on skin sensitivity.
