How do Skin Peels work?
Peels and Skin resurfacing treatments loosen the glue-like substances that hold the surface skin cells to each other, therefore allowing the dead skin to shed. The skin underneath has a fresher, healthier look with a more even colour and texture. Collagen and elastin regenerate, making fine lines less obvious. The treatments are also helpful in stabilising oily or acne-prone skin and improving skin tone.
For the best results, peels and skin resurfacing treatments should be combined and complemented with leave-on home care preparations including AHA’s, UV protection, retinoid creams and vitamins A, B and C.
Alumier MD home care products are available in clinic or simply visit this web page https://www.alumiermd.com/join.
TCA peels work slightly deeper in the skin. Your skin will need preparing for the skin peel, by the use of home care products for at least 4 weeks prior to the treatment. There will be some “down time” associated with these types of skin peels, typically around 5-7 days, where the dead layers of skin will literally peel away to reveal fresh, glowing skin underneath. These peels are best repeated around 3 times per year to maintain the best results.
What do peels and skin resurfacing treatments involve?
The procedures known as Peels and Skin resurfacing involve the application of a solution to the surface of the skin to produce the careful removal of its outer layers. The amount of skin removed will depends on the type of peel used, the strength of the product and length of skin contact.
The treatments are excellent for improving the skin and prolonging skin quality. Areas which can be treated include the face, neck, hands, arms and shoulders.
