We perform a variety ofskin peels at Fraser Clinic, which are an excellent alternative to harsh physical skin abrasion from microbead scrubs and a more gentle way of improving your skin tone and texture.
Medi Peels stimulate change in the skin without annihilating healthy skin to make change happen. It’s a common misconception that professional peels must always be aggressive to achieve quantifiable results through excessive shedding, scabbing and downtime.
Chemical peeling is basically an accelerated form of exfoliation induced by the application of a chemical agent such as Retinol, Alpha and Beta Hydroxy acids or other organic compounds.
Chemical Peeling creates beneficial changes in a number of ways
- induce a faster shedding of the outer layer of skin and promote skin renewal through new cell growth
- increased cell turnover
- production of collagen and elastin is stimulated
- dermal and epidermal hydration is increased
- epidermal pigment is lightened
- skin feels tighter and smoother
Peels are usually recommended as a series of 4 – 6 on a monthly basis. Pigmentation, fine lines and dull lifeless skin can be transformed through a series of professionally selected and applied MediPeels. Optimal results need to be supported by a customised skin maintenance program. Some peels require a 2 week pre-prepping time with professionally selected skin treatment prior to the peel.
Professionally administered chemical peels are a comprehensive and effective tool to improve skin quality.
