Peels

Peels are a safe and effective skin resurfacing treatment that removes dry, dull and dead debris on the surface layer of the skin while stimulating new cell regeneration. It is one of the oldest cosmetic procedures in the world having been performed in ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome to help people achieve a clearer, smoother, and youthful looking skin. Peels help in addressing areas of dryness and dehydration, refining fine lines and wrinkles, reducing acne, congestion, uneven skin texture and tone, rosacea and congested oil pores. As Enzyme Peels ONLY work on dead skin cells and not the live tissue, this makes them the ideal treatment for all skin types and conditions.

We offer two types of Peels:

Enzyme Peels

Enzyme Peels are a popular skin resurfacing treatment that are gentle on the skin and offer almost immediate results with zero downtime. They stimulate new skin cell growth to regenerate and repair damaged skin, accelerate the skin’s natural processes and help normalise skin function. All this helps revitalise the skin and delivers a healthy, refreshed, smooth and glowing complexion.

Metabolic Peels

Metabolic Peels are a sophisticated range of skin treatments that work deep within the skin using advanced and superior delivery systems to rebuild skin integrity, and not just strip back the skin.

Catalyst Retinol Peel – An intensive treatment that optimises skin health through cellular repair and correction in all skin types. Pure Retinol (or Vitamin A) increases the skin’s turnover rate generating youthful skin. Perfectly concentrated levels of pure Vitamin A, Niacinamide and natural Fruit Acid enzymesnormalise and improve the skin’s cellular renewal process, thus counteracting skin ageing, reducing sun damage while refining and resurfacing the skin. This restructures and rebuilds collagen and elastin, while increasing anti-inflammatory activity in the skin (including the most weakened skin) delivering increased skin clarity, firmness and hydration as the skin strengthens.

Oxygenating Enzyme Peel – An instant pick-me-up for all skin types that hydrates, plumps, renews and smooths even the most tired skins.  This treatment is perfectly formulated with high levels of natural fruit acid enzymes to enhance dead skin cell removal while accelerating the skin’s cellular renewal process.

Peels can also be had as part of a complementary multi-treatment program (Super-Charged Combination Therapy), which delivers visibly superior, more effective, targeted and longer-lasting results.

Enzyme Peels are ideal for people who want the benefits of a facial peel but do not wish to spend the time required to recover from a deeper peel. Enzyme peels comprise of enzymes derived from a blend of natural fruit ingredients such as papaya, pineapple, pomegranate and pumpkin to name a few. Enzymes are naturally occurring proteins and help accelerate our body’s natural chemical reactions, for example aiding in our gut digestion. In the same way, enzyme peels help speed up our skin’s natural chemical reactions to exfoliate the dry, dull and dead skin cells on the top outer surface layer of our skin while leaving healthy skin cells intact. The strength of these peels depends on the various concentrations and combination of enzymes.

Metabolic Peels work from the outside-in to strengthen and renew the skin. After cleansing the skin, metabolic enzymes are worked into the skin and left to penetrate the skin. These peels contain high concentrations and combinations of skin-active nutrients including vitamins, peptides and antioxidants, together with enzymes to stimulate cellular renewal, nourish skin cells and stimulate collagen production deep within the skin. This feeds the skin cells with active nutrients that correct and enhance skin function for long-term restructuring, repairing and skin rebuilding. We finish off with an application of a moisturiser and sunscreen to protect the fresh newly-revealed skin and prevent future damage.

Peel choice and strength is determined by the skin concern and skin type being treated. As such, your skin therapist will use a specific formula for your peel based on the characteristics of your skin health and your desired result.

As penetration and performance of skin active serums are enhanced following a peel treatment, when had in conjunction with complementary treatments as part of a Super-Charged Combination Therapy, we can deliver visibly superior, more effective, targeted and longer-lasting results.

Enzyme Peels work ONLY on dead skin cells and not the live tissue, which makes them an ideal treatment for all skin types and conditions. This peel is safe and effective with minimal to zero downtime.

Metabolic Peels require careful pre-peel preparation and post-peel care. Immediately post-treatment your skin may feel slightly red, irritated and flake as dry dead cells are shed off. This is perfectly normal and is in fact the skin regenerating itself, with the sensation subsiding within a few hours. This may occur for the first couple of days, however will resolve itself within 2 weeks as your new skin comes through. Only mineral make-up can be applied immediately after the treatment as it is healing to the skin and it also provides an SPF protection factor.

Rest assured, we will give you the appropriate advice for both pre-peel preparation and post-peel care, and we will also make the appropriate recommendations and adjustments to peel strength before any treatment begins. It is very important you follow these instructions to prevent any side effects or complications from occurring. Since UV light can damage your new skin, it is imperative you use appropriate broad spectrum of at least SPF 30+ sun protection.

During your initial consultation and skin analysis, your skin clinician will ask you a series of questions to determine your eligibility as well as what course of treatment is best for you.

Depending on the peel intensity and your skin concern, in order to properly prep your skin you may be required to use recommended skin actives at least 1 – 2 weeks prior to treatment.

Note: Peels are NOT recommended for the following conditions:

  • Active cold sores
  • Open lesions / Infection / Blood infections

Metabolic Peels work at the cellular level so full results take a couple of weeks to come through as the skin rebuilds.

The number of treatments depends upon your need for optimum results. Generally a series of 6 or more peels are required depending on individual skin condition and age. As everyone’s skin is unique, results and ongoing maintenance requirements will differ from person to person. Peels deliver fortified results when combined with other facial treatments such as part of a Super-Charged Combination Therapy.
