Medik8 offers a wide range of ‘medical grade’ peel treatments to suit everyone. From those who are very new to chemical peeling techniques to experienced clients looking for a deeper level of epidermal peeling with intensive results. Ranging from superficial to medium-strength, there is a treatment for every skin type and concern. Peels are not only suitable for the face, but also other areas of the body requiring rejuvenation, e.g. on the back to help clear acne concerns or even in the underarm or bikini line area where skin can become dark and ashy.
We would all like to stop or turn back the clock when it comes to our skin, wanting a more youthful, beautiful you? A skin peel can rejuvenate and refresh the skin that takes years off you almost instantly with none of the side effects associated with invasive surgery. Chemical peels are a safe way to reduce the damage caused by aging and overexposure to the sun, amongst other things.
The practice of clinical chemical skin peeling can create amazing results and is not just about exfoliation – this can be a powerful skin regenerative tool that can be tailored very specifically to an individual skin condition and client requirement. It can be used effectively as a treatment on its own or it can be used to complement a number of other procedures such as Laser and IPL, Skin Needling, Microdermabrasion, and Radio Frequency, for a combined therapy approach.
How Chemical Peel Works?
A non-toxic chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the unwanted top layer or layers. This encourages collagen production and cell renewal, to reveal an age-defying healthier, younger-looking you. Treatments are mostly pain-free, though some peels can lead to light swelling of the affected area or peeling of the skin for a few days after the procedure. Your trained practitioner can give you the advice you need on the right type of peel for you, devising a tailored treatment plan to achieve optimum results!
How long will I need to recover?
Some chemical peels are single treatments and involve no downtime. Others require a course of treatments, some of which have little or no downtime, and others that come with a maximum of a 7-10-day recovery period. You should always use sunblock post-treatment as your skin can be quite sensitive. After any skin peel, you are free to leave the clinic as soon as you feel comfortable to do so.
No matter which peel you select, your registered trained Medik8 skincare expert will ensure you have a comfortable experience in-clinic with invaluable advice and a tailor-made at-home regime to optimize results. When combined with Medik8 homecare, concerns such as acne, pigmentation, wrinkles, and dullness can be significantly reduced in as little as 6 weeks.*
