The treatment using facial peels is aimed at the removal of skin problems like blemishes, wrinkles, scarring, pigmentation, uneven skin tone and dull skin. Your skin appears younger and rejuvenated after the treatment. A peel essentially imparts a new and brighter appearance to the skin.
The peel exploits the skin’s ability to heal itself. A peel basically breaks down the protein bonds between dead skin cells and removes the dead skin thus bringing a fresh and new layer of skin to the surface. The peel mixture is applied to the skin and left on it for some time. The skin becomes softer and easier to remove or exfoliate. After the skin is rinsed, a fresh new skin comes on the top.
The skin will continue to flake for a few days after the treatment. Since skin peeling brings a new skin to the surface, it also implies that the newly exposed skin is slightly sensitive. To protect this new skin against sun damage, it is important to wear the DermaFix DermaShield SPF40/SPF50.
The DermaFix DermaPolish enzymatic exfoliator is used when flaking begins following the procedure, to smooth out the skin. Though peels are quite effective, don’t expect a single treatment to cure all your skin problems. Often more than one sitting is required to achieve a noticeable difference, especially in the case of light peels.
If you have any skin sensitivities or allergies, you should discuss this with your therapist prior to commencing treatment. We advise that you keep your skin clean from makeup for 24 hours after the treatment and avoid direct sun exposure for 24 hours.
