Chemical Peels provide significant benefits by helping smooth rough, dry skin, improve the texture of sun damaged skin, superficial acne scars, minimizing fine lines, softening deep wrinkles and treating active skin conditions (such as acne and rocesea). During the procedure, the skin is cleansed deeply and the chemical is applied, penetrating the dead skin cells and stimulating the regeneration of a new and stronger epidermis. Following de-activation, the skin is then hydrated, treated and moisturised. Treatments last about 15-20 minutes. A series of peels (4-6) is usually required to obtain the best results performed at intervals of 10-14 days. The strength of the peel will increase during a course.
During a Microdermabrasion treatment, the superficial layer of skin (outer epidermis) is gently abraded away, stimulating skin cell and collagen reproduction and blood flow. It is useful in treating dull and leathery skin, mild acne scaring, fine wrinkles, even skin tone and to exfoliate pores. A machine with vacuum device and a diamond tip is applied to the skin. Skin is abraded and debris is vacuumed and filtered for disposal. Treatments are relatively painless and last about 15-20 minutes. In isolation, 6 to 12 treatments are recommended.
Both treatments work well in combination, with 4-6 treatments (10-14 days apart) - 2 to 3 times per year) recommended for optimal results.
