What's the deal with the Peel?
Last year I introduced my clients to a brand new treatment;
Dermalogica BioSurface Peel!
"The BioSurface™ Peel is a professional chemical peel designed to resurface the skin with minimal recovery time. The unique, multi-phase approach works with the skin’s biology to safely slough away dull epidermal layers and accelerate cell renewal without inflammation and prolonged downtime typically associated with chemical peels"
This treatment helps to reduce breakouts, pigmentation and signs of premature aging to reveal smoother, brighter and softer skin! A great treatment at this time of year for brighter, healthier looking skin!
A Pre-facial is recommended before booking a course of peels to prepare your skin! A patch test is also required.
Take skin health to a new depth
How does it work?
BioSurface Peel is designed to work with the skin’s chemistry, not against it. When performed by a certified Dermalogica skin care Expert (such as I!) it safely removes outer layers of skin and helps skin underneath regenerate for better health and radiance. Unlike other chemical peels in the industry, this peel has no downtime and does not damage your skin.
Your skin condition, skin concerns and dedication to post-treatment care will impact the frequency and results of BioSurface Peel treatments. Ideally a course of treatments are performed over a 3 – 12 week period, followed by maintenance treatments twice a year.
Immediately after your BioSurface Peel treatment, your skin may appear red and flushed. As your skin goes through the renewal process it is normal to experience dryness, redness and tightness as well as some peeling or flaking within a week. These side effects will subside quickly with proper post-treatment care, starting with the BioSurface Peel After Care Kit. This kit contains Ultracalming Cleanser, Super Sensitive Shield SPF30 , two nourishing moisturisers as well as the AgeSmart Multivitamin Thermafoliant to help buff away post treatment peeling.
Who is a BioSurface Peel candidate?
I can assess the suitability of BioSurface Peel for your skin condition and desired results with a Face Mapping Skin Analysis. In general BioSurface Peel can be tailored to suit the following skin conditions:
- skin roughness
- signs of photodamage
- fine lines and wrinkles
- skin congestion
- some forms of pigmentation and unbalanced skin tone
A patch test is required at least 48 hours before the treatment and there are certain products that you should not use 3 days before and the treatment (any products from the AgeSmart or Medibac Dermalogica range or other products containing vitamin A or exfoliators).
