Renew The Appeal Of Facial Peels

July 14, 2015

There is a renewed interest in facial peels, as people are looking for more affordable options to rejuvenate the face. While laser treatments are great in addressing problems such as pigmentation and fine lines, they are also at a higher price point. So what facial peels do we have at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia?

AHA and BHA Peels

Peels which contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) such as glycolic acid, lactic acid and mandelic acid, along with beta hydroxy acid (BHA) such as salicylic acid are commonly found in facial peels. These acids are often used in facial peels as they are excellent in exfoliating the skin, which encourages new cells to shed and fresh skin to come to the surface.

A favourite at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia is the Lactobotanical peel, as it both exfoliates, brightens and hydrates the skin. “It stimulates the production of good oils, which in turn creates a barrier on the surface that locks in this natural moisture,” says Ann-Marie Nolan, our senior clinician at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia. “We often use the Lactobotanical peel on patients with dull and dehydrated skin, but it can also assist with sun-damaged pigmentation and help minimise fine lines.”

Another peel to consider is the salicylic acid peel, which is beneficial for those suffering from acne, “It dissolves the intracellular glue, which helps remove the build of dead cells from the skin’s surface, as well as being both anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial,” explains Ann-Marie. “It also assists with enlarged pores by reducing and rebalancing oil production and improving skin texture.”

Food-Based Peels

Food-based peels have become much more popular in recent years, so don’t be surprised to find some facial peels containing ingredients that can be found in your fridge. At Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia, we currently have the MangoBrite Resurfacer, which contains mango pulp and orange stem cells which gently exfoliates and gives a beautiful glow to the skin.

The Pumpkin Resurfacer peel which promises to nourish tired-looking skin, as pumpkin has a high level of Vitamin A and assists with the battle of hormonal acne. If you’re more interested in a peel that contains fruit, the Blueberry Smoothie and the Pomegranate Peel may be more up your alley, the high concentration of blueberry and yoghurt will infuse the skin with a glow that an A-List celebrity will envy.

Dermal Peels

“Facial peels which are more potent are becoming less common these days due to the patient’s busy schedule,” says Ann-Marie. Justine Stewart-Crompton, the principal clinical consultant at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia agrees, “Today’s deeper peels are not as invasive as they once were. Minimal flaking is to expected, but there is no pain or inflammation associated with them.”

The Timeless Peel is a popular peel at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia, for those who want a deeper skin treatment. “”The downtime of the Timeless Peel is different for each person. Some patients don’t need much downtime, while others may get peeling and dryness within two to three days after the treatment,” explains Ann-Marie. However, you’ll need schedule at least two weeks before the peel, as you’ll need to strengthen the skin’s surface before doing the treatment by using a retinol treatment.

If you’re interested in facial peels, it’s best to book a consultation, so one of our experienced clinicians can examine which peel suits your skin’s needs. Contact us on 1300 88 99 35 for more details.
