Deep skin cleansing and cellular renewal. From instant glow to anti-ageing treatment.
A peel consists in applying an exfoliating chemical solution on the skin. It improves its appearance by eliminating, in a controlled way, the superficial layers of the epidermis. The most frequently treated areas are the face, neck, décolleté, back and hands. Superficial peels accelerate cellular turnover and bring healthy cells to the surface, to treat and rejuvenate the skin.
After a personalised skin preparation, the therapist chooses the right peel and concentration to treat the underlying problem. The application of the product triggers the process of skin exfoliation. After neutralising the peel solution, the therapist performs extractions of black and white spots if necessary. Finally, a soothing mask is applied on the areas treated. A peel session lasts about 45 minutes. It is essential to follow the post-peel protocol by using specific creams recommended by the therapist
• Age spots
• Dull complexion
• Uneven coloration
• Acne and acne scars
• Dilated pores
• Fine lines
• Loss of elasticity
• Melasma (pregnancy mask)
• Glycolic acid peel: Most popular of AHA peels, it is also the most frequently used, being the mildest and best adapted to all skin types. A powerful stimulator of cell renewal, it improves skin texture and appearance. Glycolic acid peel has a rejuvenating effect: fading of fine lines, firmer skin and a radiant glow.
• Mandelic acid peel: This peel made with almond extract lightens pigmented spots due to acne, sun or ageing, evens out the complexion and gives the skin an instant radiance.
• Salicylic acid peel: Also called Alpha Beta Complex, this peel is appropriate to oily and acne prone skins. It works by dislodging impurities and sebum from pores and facilitates extractions of blackheads and whiteheads. A clear path to beautiful skin.
• TCA peel : Medium trichloracetic peels act deeper than superficial fruit acid peels. An important desquamation allows skin resurfacing: rosier, more hydrated, supple and toned skin. TCA peels are highly recommended to treat loss of elasticity, age spots and skin damaged by excess tobacco.
• Vitamin A mask: Vitamin A is used to treat skin inflammation due to severe acne or hyperkeratinisation and reduces post-inflammatory spots and scars. Also effective to treat loss of elasticity and general skin ageing.
• Amelan mask: The Amelan mask is used to treat pigmented lesions such as melasma, also called pregnancy mask, and hyper-pigmented scars. It eliminates excess melanin and slows down its production by melanocytes. Results are remarkable if the post-amelan skin care protocol is strictly followed.
Think serial peels: best results are obtained when peels are repeated over time. The usual protocol is 4 to 6 sessions with 2 week intervals. Once the initial problems have been treated, successive peels then slow down their reappearance.
A mild stinging sensation may be felt when the peel solution is applied. Redness may appear immediately after, lasting only a few hours. Certain peels may trigger a desquamation 3 to 5 days later.
