Medical Grade Skin Peels
Skin rejuvenation for fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation problems
MEDICAL GRADE SKIN PEEL
If fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation are amongst your primary skin concerns, chemical peels are an ideal solution. They can even help alleviate conditions such as acne and rosacea.
At Infinity Skin Clinic, we use the CosMedix range of peels. To ensure the very best quality, the ingredients undergo a stringent purification process. Since the peels used are chirally-correct, it’s rare for patients to have allergic reactions.
One reason why these peels are a popular choice is because they’re plant-based. A high-level of active ingredients and no artificial colours, fragrances or preservatives produces superior results.
The CosMedix Benefit Peel™ contains a unique blend of nourishing ingredients that easily penetrate the skin. The result is an increase in collagen production and minimal peeling. This is the ideal choice for those with hypersensitive or acne-prone skin. The purity of the peel means patients with rosacea can benefit too.
The CosMedix Timeless Peel™ rejuvenates the skin by reducing the appearance of sun damage, lines, wrinkles and general pigmentation spots. The peel contains 30% chirally-corrected L-Retinol, which helps it work at a much deeper level. By removing dead layers of skin, it encourages the growth of healthy new skin cells.
As an added bonus, it also increases skin hydration levels, resulting in a smoother, suppler appearance. To use this peel, patients need to prepare the skin using medical grade skincare products for a month or more.
It should be noted that this is not a standard type of peel. Medical grade peels can only be applied under the supervision of a medical practitioner. What’s more, the results are much better than general beauty therapy peels.
We recommend at least three peels spaced four weeks apart. Thereafter, you only need maintenance peels to maintain a more youthful appearance.
Medical Grade Peels – Q & A:
A Medipeel is made up of a chemical solution that helps speed up the exfoliation process. Most peels are designed to remove the epidermis, which is the outer layer of the skin, resulting in an increase in skin cell turnover. The stronger the peel, the more layers of skin it removes, which is when peeling also occurs. The strength of the peel also affects the results and determines whether downtime is required. Whatever the strength, glowing skin is assured.
Medipeels are ideal for anyone who wants their skin to have a natural glow. It’s also a good treatment for mild acne, general signs of ageing, dull skin and congested pores.
The face, neck and chest are the areas that we treat most often at Infinity Skin Clinic.
This is mainly dependent on the strength of the peel. If downtime is required, it’s best to schedule your peel close to the weekend or take time off. After your peel, it’s essential that you avoid intense sun exposure for at least two weeks. Thereafter, sunscreen needs to be applied daily.
It’s possible to achieve the best results after two to three sessions spaced about a month apart.
Peels consist of high concentrations of active ingredients as well as a number of plant-based ingredients. It’s these ingredients that enhance the natural moisture of the face and remove dead and damaged skin cells.
Peels stimulate the skin at a deep level. This process happens slowly to lessen any pain and trauma and produce the desired outcome. If peels worked too quickly, patients would be left with a layer of discoloured skin after their treatment. Even scarring would be possible in this instance.
