Skin Peel

We all know that skin peels can be great to treat a range of conditions including acne, sun damage, pigmentation, fine line, wrinkles, and scarring as well as refreshing thick, tired and dull looking skin.

However the world of skin peels can be a confusing one. There are exfoliators, resurfacers, and peels, all work to different strengths and perform different tasks, which can mean it’s hard to know which one to choose.

Exfoliators are the gentlest way to refresh the skin. Working on the top layer of the epidermis, the stratum corneum, it removes the dead skin cells revealing the new, healthy skin below. Exfoliators are topical and have no downtime.

Resurfacers sometimes referred to as mild peels, are superficial treatments, meaning that they work on the very top layers of the epidermis and use enzymes and acids to refine and exfoliate. Resurfacers generally have little-to-no downtime following treatment.

Skin peels treat the top layers but also penetrate the mid to lower levers of the epidermis, delivering stronger, extended results. Because chemical peels are so active and deeply penetrating, downtime of up to 10 days can be expected.

We offer a range of skin exfoliators, resurfacers and peels, as well as an extensive range of homecare options to ensure you get the best, long-lasting results. To learn more speak with Another Level MediSpa consultant today.


Obagi Skin Peel

This is a treatment in which an acid solution is used to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin. These peels enhance and smooth the texture of the skin. They are an effective treatment for facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation. They exfoliate the outer layers of dead skin, revealing a new skin layer with improved tone, texture, and colour. In addition to full facial rejuvenation, certain types of skin peels can also be used for spot treatments and as a way to remove stretch marks or rejuvenate skin elsewhere on the body. The Enerpeel system works from within and will not damage the outer layers of the skin. The Obagi blue radiance peel is extremely effective at promoting good strong healthy skin.


EnerPeel® technology is a patented carrier solution, which restrains the acids activity until it is in the skin (not active). This is not buffering the acid to reduce its activity.

 

EnerPeel® carriers take 2 to 3 times more acid molecules across the stratum corneumin a more uniform way than with standard solutions.

 

EnerPeel® carriers restrain the acid and are designed to release the acid molecules and other treatment ingredients at a certain percentage concentration range of water allowing them to accelerate through the skin, enhancing its activity.

EnerPeel® carriers restrain the acid and allow the introduction of various treatment ingredients for various skin conditions and diseases. These would be damaged (destroyed) if in a normal acid solution. They are protected by the carrier which also takes them deep into the skin in high concentrations.

 

This means there is less surface impact and the result is less surface trauma; faster surface recovery with erythema reducing more rapidly; but combined with enhanced dermal remodelling stimulation (MMP1 activation).

 

The Carrier Delivers three main benefits

1) More even and greater absorption of the acids and their associated ingredients
2) Greater dermal focus with controlled even exfoliation, More even frosting and less erythema
3) Probably the most important part of EnerPeel – The ability to incorporate treatment ingredients into the Carrier matrix
