Customisable Skin Peels
Many people opt for a Epionce skin peels to treat specific conditions, to rejuvenate the skin or for anti-ageing purposes. Skin peeling resurfaces the skin by removing layers of dead skin which can improve the skin tone, texture and minor blemishes. There are many different peels on the market and we have selected the safest and most customisable product to administer to our clients. We understand that each person’s skin is different and sensitivities vary. Our choice of peel allows us to cater to each individuals requirements with minimal risk on all ethnicities and skin types.
What benefits can be seen?
Results are variable so it is always best to discuss your requirements with your therapist. They can then advise you regarding your suitability and possible outcomes. Benefits include:
- Improvement of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Skin feels smoother and firmer.
- Decrease in pigmentation (We do offer a specific pigment treatment).
- More even skin tone.
- Reduction in bacteria and yeast which cause acne.
- Effectively deep cleanses pores.
- Removal of excessive and stubborn blackheads.
- Removal of excess scaling to reveal tighter and brighter skin.
- Correction of sun damage.
- Reduces scarring.
- Temporarily reduces excessive skin oil secretions.
What does it involve?
We initially cleanse the skin to remove dust, dirt and other environmental residues. Then we use a professional skin prep solution to strip the skin of any oils. Our Epionce chemical skin peels tailore the treatment to the individual, due to the fact sometimes we apply multiple layers. Furthermore, your therapist is experienced and watches to see how your skin reacts throughout the treatment. The peel acids consist of different pH’s also. Firstly, we start by applying a salicylic acid layer evenly over the skin and some individuals need only receive this to see drastic peeling. Your therapist will determine whether your skin reacts in a manner which does not require multiple layers. For some, the outcome you desire means applying multiple layers. Due to skin tolerance existing, either; by having peels regularly or naturally there is less surface build up. Post procedure the skin is cleansed and prepared for day to day exposure to environmental factors.
How many treatments are advised?
You may notice positive changes in your skin after just one treatment. However, depending on your skin care goals achieving the best results may require a number of treatments. Your therapist will recommend a Home Care Program (please see also our Aftercare Advice). It is recommended carrying out 6-8 sessions, to experience the full benefits of Epionce chemical skin peels. The interval between each treatment being at least 6 weeks.
What should I consider before having a peel?
Prior to having Epionce chemical skin peels, you should be aware that there is a certain amount of downtime required. Time is crucial for aftercare and hydration. Immediately after having a skin peel some clients may be pink and the skin will feel quite tight. This is due to the stimulation of collagen and elastin production. After 12-48 hours the skin may appear dry and possibly flaky/darker. Light flaking/peeling may be similar to sunburn in some people.
If no peeling occurs this does not mean that the peel hasn’t been effective; this simply means that less dead cells are building up on the skin surface. The regulation of skin build up is efficient due to your own body mechanisms. This is also the case when an individual has chemical skin peels regularly. The production of collagen or elastin will have been roused on the skin surface by the peel. Over the years many clients have skin peels over smaller or larger body areas and observe beneficial results.
How should I care for my skin immediately after my peel?
It is essential that during the peeling process (which may last for up to 5-7 days) that the skin is kept well hydrated with mild cream/oil/moisturiser (we recommend the use of our Tone and Defence Skin Oil). Whenever the treatment area feels tight, you must apply the Tone and Defence Formula skin oil, this is due to the skin being dry. You must not prick or pull the skin whilst the peeling process is occurring. This is because new healthier skin is forming under the layers and the natural cell renewal process is occuring. The new skin appears when the body is ready.
