HOW DOES A CHEMICAL PEEL OR RESURFACER WORK?
Skin peels and resurfacer treatments are designed to exfoliate your skin and encourage it to refresh itself by creating fresh new skin cells. They also stimulate the skin’s natural collagen production to help target the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Skin peel treatments make use of acids and enzymes to exfoliate away layers of the skin to reveal fresher, clearer, more youthful looking skin beneath the surface. Resurfacers are a milder type of skin peel and are sometimes referred to as ‘superficial exfoliating treatments’.
The powerful blend of ingredients in skin peels work to visibly reduce the appearance of open pores, remove dead skin cells, target blemishes, acne and pigmentation, and visibly smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The procedure is used all over the world to treat skin conditions such as fine line and wrinkles, acne, hyper-pigmentation and sun damage - the results can be life-transforming.
YOUR SKIN PEEL CONSULTATION AT SK:N
All skin peel treatments require a one-to-one consultation with a sk:n practitioner. During your consultation at sk:n you’ll be advised on the right type of peel for you, and will receive a tailored treatment plan to achieve optimum results. They will carry out a patch test at least 48 hours prior to your appointment to ensure the treatment is suitable for your specific skin type and needs.
In order to support, enhance and protect your skin prior to and during your DermaQuest treatment we request all clients having a treatment* to adhere to a tailored skin preparation regime for a minimum of two weeks depending on your skin type prior to their treatment.
Many of our DermaQuest treatments contain a higher percentage of active ingredients, therefore by adhering to the skin preparation regime your skin will be in a suitable condition for treatment, and you will receive optimum results.
Skin peels are pain-free, though some can lead to light swelling or peeling of the skin for a few days after the procedure.
