Professional skin peels have a dual action - they eliminate the accumulation of dead cells from the skin's surface and depending on their composition they will stimulate the internal structure of the skin to activate and energise firoblasts and collagen synthesis. Skin peels are used to address a number of skin conditions such as, the signs of ageing, enlarged pores, oily and blocked pores, pimples and blackheads as well as more severe cases of acne.
Professional skin peels to reduce the signs of ageing:
When we are young, skin cells divide rapidly and the dead outer layer of skin continually renews. With age, reproduction of skin cells slow down and the living layer of skin becomes thinner while the outer dead layer thickens. This results in sallow, wrinkled and unhealthy appearance and the skin lacks the glow and transparency it once had.
A professional peel removes the dead cells from the outer layer of skin, which encourages replacement cells from the living layer of skin to come to the surface more quickly. Our skin begins to behave as younger skin, and in turn starts to look younger too.
Professional peels to address oily and congested skin;
As we know, the outer layer of skin is made up of dead skin cells waiting for the natural shedding process to take place. Oil from the oil gland normally uses the hair follicle to spread oil on the outside of the skin to protect and lubricate it. If the oil gland becomes blocked with dead skin cells and impurities the oil cannot escape. Oil continues to be produced beneath the blockage causing either the hair follicle to swell - resulting in small cysts, or the oil gland to swell and rupture -releasing more oil and dead skin cells into the deeper layers of the skin. This triggers a reaction in the hair follicle creating infections in the form of acne.
To achieve clearer skin, the contents of the hair follicle must be unblocked. This can be done by using products containing Alpha Hydroxy Acids AHAs in everyday skin care products. AHAs dissolve the natural"glue" which bonds skin dead cells to the surface of the skin.
Professional peel penetrate deeper into the skin encouraging blockages to clear and healthy skin to be revealed.
At Beachside Medi Spa we fully trained and certified to use the ASAP 40% Glycolyic peel and the JP& (Modified Jessner)Peel.
The 40% Glycolic acid peel deeply dissolves excess dead skin, reduces congestion and stimulates collagen production. This improves the overall texture of the skin with little discomfort or irritation. Visible peeling is uncommon with this peel.
The JP& modified jessner peel has a mild peeling and hydrating effect. This peel assists with reducing pigmentation, smoothing skin texture and improving the appearance of fine lines, uneven skin colour and problem skin.Peeling usually occurs and is complete between 5-7 days after application.
