How can chemical peels benefit your skin?
Chemical peels improve skin texture and firmness, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. Peels also even out skin tone and reduce pore size, giving the skin a smoother appearance.
Chemical peels can be used to treat:
- Oily Skin
- Dry Skin
- Ageing Skin
How do chemical peels work?
Chemical peels lower the pH of the skin, and thereby cause the dead skin cells to shed by detaching the keratin bonds that keep the dead skin cells attached to the skin. The body replenishes the loss of this dead, dull skin by the production of new skin.
On what areas of the body can chemical peels be used?
Chemical peels are usually performed on the face, but can also be used on the neck, décolleté, and back.
What is an enzyme Peel?
Like a chemical peel, an enzyme peel is also a treatment used to improve skin texture and appearance. Enzymes are applied to the skin, which loosen the connections between dead skin cells, inducing exfoliation and stimulating new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. Enzyme peels both nourish and exfoliate the skin and are usually made with fruit enzymes. The most popular fruit enzymes are papain, found in papayas, and bromelain, found in pineapple.
We offer a selection of superficial to medium depth peels known for their excellent results and safety profile. We believe in repeated treatments for progressive and gradual results, and to avoid the side effects and downtime associated with deeper peels. Chemical peels should be performed by a trained skin care professional in a clinical setting so that they are delivered safely and effective. When peels are performed regularly, the skin gets used to this process and begins to rejuvenate itself like younger skin.
At Enhanced Aesthetics Newry we will complete a thorough skin analysis and recommend an individualised treatment program to address your skin concerns. we will create a personalized program that combines professional treatments with home care products since they work together to improve the health and beauty of skin. Pre-treatment products precondition the skin, accelerate results and minimize complications. Post-treatment products minimize complications, soothe the skin and then maintain the results. Professional treatments enhance the results of your home care products.
Why do we apply ingredients after the peel and not within the peel?
Most beneficial ingredients for the skin tend to degrade or denature when placed in the low pH of chemical peel formulas. With that scientific information in mind, AlumierMD peels use only the pure acids; anti-aging, antioxidant and brightening booster ingredients are applied following your peel in our Brightening Accelerator keeping all components effective.
Peels remove the outer dead layers of the stratum corneum, so the booster ingredients are better absorbed when applied post-peel. Our multilayer process can be customized by your skin care professional according to your skin profile and concerns.
When can we expect results?
Beautiful skin doesn’t happen overnight. A single chemical peel can provide the immediate effect of bright and radiant skin. However, more significant results in treating textural issues, fine lines and inflamed acne take time.
