Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) work by exfoliating the skin to slough the dead surface cells away. This is done by loosening the glue-like substance that binds skin cells together, allowing the peel to penetrate at a much deeper level and increase the level of exfoliation intensity.
The intensity of our peels varies, depending upon the essential exfoliating ingredients, percentage of active ingredients, the delivery system and the peels’ PH level.
If you’ve never experienced a peel before, we recommend you prepare your skin by using the corresponding home care prior to your treatment. This allows your skin to become accustomed to the active ingredient, lessening the chance of any irritation and ultimately improving the results of your treatment.
After a full skin analysis using our Observ Skin Analysis Machine we will determine the peel needed to treat your concern.
We start with thoroughly cleansing your skin and priming it ready for your peel. The peel solution is then applied to your skin and left for a period of time, dependent on the specific peel type.
During the peel time, your skin may feel a touch itchy or prickly, especially if there are areas of breakouts. Your Therapist will be with you at all times, monitoring and gently brushing the area to assist with any areas of itchiness.
Once the peel has activated and delivered the required treatment, it is either cleansed away, neutralised or left to self-neutralise. We finish your treatment with moisturiser and SPF, and can also apply mineral make up if you wish.
Absolutely, an application of our Youngblood Mineral Makeup can be applied and back to work you go.
