Skin peels have become exceedingly popular over the last few years. They are a magnificent treatment in combination with non-surgical procedures or as a stand-alone treatment. They are very effective for both men and women of all ages who want to restore a healthy glow.
Chemical skin peels can make a significant difference if you want your skin to look smoother, younger and most importantly radiant. Many skin problems are associated with an excessive build-up of dead skin cells, which makes the skin thick and dull, usually clogging the pores.
Skin peels offer a revolutionary way to effectively treat ageing skin, acne, reduce sun damage and hyper pigmentation.
What you need to know
How do they work?
Skin peels intensively exfoliates the upper layer of skin to give room for dead skin cells to slough off effectively. This action gets rid of debris and irritants from the skin and prevents excess sebum from clogging the hair follicles. When this happens blocked pores and the formation of pimples are significantly reduced, unveiling healthier, fresher skin.
What products are used?
Agera Skin Peels represent a major advancement in the non-invasive treatment of ageing skin, acne and pigmentation. The unique no down time peels provide visible results without unsightly skin shedding, redness or irritation.
What does it contain?
The peels contain a unique combination of stable acids, delivering a stable form of Salicylic,
L-ascorbic and Lactic acid.
Is this a superficial, medium or deep peel?
The depth of the peels can vary depending on the combination of the peel used and the PH of the peel applied. It is recommended that the programme starts with a superficial peel and if tolerated progress to a deeper strength application.
What skin problems does it claim to treat?
Agera treatment peels have been developed to treat ageing, acne and pigmentation.
- Anti-ageing peels stimulate deep within the skin to promote collagen and elastin production and help eliminate fine lines and wrinkles for a firmer, smoother and more radiant appearance.
- Acne peels rapidly bring acne under control and dramatically reduce the risk of future scarring. The peels also reduce blocked pores and redness associated with acne conditions.
- Pigmentation control peels penetrate the skins pigment cells to gently and effectively reduce the appearance of unwanted discoloration for a more even skin tone.
What is the protocol for pre-treatment?
Unlike most facial peels there is no home skin care preparation needed pre peel so they are suitable for all skin types and ages. All patients post peel must apply a suitable SPF30 daily.
What areas can be treated?
Face, chest, back.
Will the Agera skin peel hurt?
There may be a mild heat sensation when the peel is initially applied to the skin, but this is very mild and will quickly pass.
How many skin peel treatments are recommended?
Individual Agera peels are available, however, for optimum results it is suggested that a course of 6 peels are undertaken, spaced 10-14 days apart. This allows for a multi-layered treatment programme. A longer course may be required for pigmented skin or moderate to aggressive acne. Ongoing maintenance treatments performed monthly/bi-monthly are recommended.
