Long weekend hibernation: Skin Peels

Having extra time than the typical weekend is the perfect opportunity to avail of more invasive treatments.

There are many reasons why we love long weekends but long weekends also give you the opportunity to take the time to check a few things off your life list!

Skin peels are greatly beneficial to all and repair a variety of skin concerns following just one treatment. There are varying grades of peels available on the market and Face Plus Medispa strongly believe in non-invasive treatments.

One of the most invasive treatments available include “Fraxel”, there are many reasons why we do not offer Fraxel at Face Plus Medispa but some of the key reasons is due to the severity of the treatment, pain, down time required and the long term damage it causes to the skin.

Often harsher resurfacing treatments compromise the skin’s barrier, exposing it to microbial infection and causing trauma to the skin – all things you don’t want to be doing to your skin!

Face Plus Medispa offer a total of six different peels:

The Enzyme Peel: This is a mild peel that offers a great exfoliation and patients will leave the clinic with glowing, fresh, hydrated and balanced skin. Read more here

The B Peel: A step up from The Enzyme. The B Peels works by combining the active herbs in a gel, it stimulates the complexion’s natural regeneration process to allow the skin to function at its healthiest. Read more here

The Phyto Peel: This peel is one of our most popular mid-range peels as it gently removed the non-viable epidermal layer to reveal a new skin surface within 24hours. Having a Phyto Peel is the equivalent to having SERVERAL microdermabrasion’s treatments without causing stress and damage to the skin. Read more here

The Radiance Plus, Pigmentation Peel: This peel will only take approximately 45minsutes to perform and is specifically designed to target pigmentation rapidly breaking down the melanin, accelerating the breakdown of hyperpigmentation. Read more here

The Vitamin A Peel: A quick 30minute treatment, it is a safe and effective way for those with superficial blemishes or signs of aging to improve the skin quality. The Phyto Peel exfoliates the skin and unclogs the pores. Read more here

The Herbal Activ Peel: An incredibly intense but all natural peel that will reveal new skin in just 5 days. This herbal peel is medically proven and contains no synthetic chemicals or acids.

Downtime is required for this treatment, patients will not be able to wash or wet their face for 5 days following their initial treatment and will be required to visit the clinic on their 5th day to have the dead skin professionally and safely removed. Read more here

There are some great peels available in clinic and it’s always really important to have a skin assessment prior to any peel. Peels can have dangerous lasting effects if not performed correctly or if your skin’s integrity has not been properly prepared for the chosen procedure. It is also important to build realistic expectations and outcomes.
