Light strength peels

“Lunch time peels” are excellent for resurfacing and to re-texturize the skin with little or no downtime.  The skin appears refreshed as the desiccated dead skin cells are removed, leaving the plumper, fresher cells

 Blueberry Smoothie & Pomegranate

These refreshing peels are  fast and effective offering a cocktail of antioxidants and mildly stimulating peels to give you a refreshed glow.  

 Benefit Peel

Benefit peel is a mild peel which uses purified Vitamin C and Retinol AGP complex - Vitamin A to nourish, mildly exfoliate, and stimulate collagen to produce a radiant, healthy glow.  This is a Vitamin peel/ infusion which boosts anti oxidants in the skin and assists in combating free radical damage.

 Phytotretinate Peel

A synergistic blend of chirally corrected ingredients, salicylic acids and plant derived retinoic acid to produce a moderate depth, detoxifying peel treatment that destroys bacteria, heals acne lesions and is anti inflammatory.

The result is a smoothing and exfoliating medical strength peel that is excellent for acne or any impure skin conditions.  A course of 3 is recommended at weekly intervals.

 Lactic Acid Peels 30- 40%

These light peels, not only remove dead surface cells but brighten and hydrate the skin. Some flakiness may be seen 2 to 4 days post peel, then a radiant refreshed skin is exposed.

 

Medium strength peels

These medium strength peels require preparation and post peel treatment.
Due to individual differences, patients will experience peeling at varying degrees; obvious sheet like shedding of the skin (similar to post sunburn), or mild flaking for a period of 7 days or anywhere in between.

Timeless / Timeless Rx Peels

Timeless is a moderate depth anti-aging peel with 30-40% Retinol AGP complex to generate immense activity in the skin. It increases cell turnover, hydrates and removes layers of dead skin. 

It is common to experience sheet peeling of the skin post this peel. It is important to follow pre and after kit product application.  

 

TCA peel (tri-chloracetic acid)

TCA is a man-made chemical based on acetic acid. TCA stands for tri-chloroacetic acid and is one of the original chemical skin rejuvenation peels.
Superficial TCA Peels are designed as mild to moderate peels. Their strength, and therefore peeling effects can be increased, by layering the applications. The peel depth is dependent on the patient's skin type, skin condition and desired result. TCA peels are recommended for all ages wanting to improve sun damage and or signs of ageing.

Glycolic Acid Peels 20% - 50%

Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid. Used to treat mild to moderate sun damage, signs of ageing, pigmentation and loss of elasticity.  Depending on the skin condition, various strengths are used to obtain desired result.  Glycolic acid peel preparations are also recommended for fine lines, brown marks and dry spots (solar keratoses) which can improve with regular applications. Glycolic acid may also prove helpful for those prone to acne. This peel is often used for hand rejuvenation.
