Accelerated exfoliation, commonly known as peeling, is a common and effective form of skin treatment. Peels are a great way of improving the texture of the skin and treating fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes and pigmentation. With age and excessive sun exposure, the skin can develop blemishes and defects like freckles, sun spots and acne scars, which affect the top few layers of the skin. Peels target these imperfections by deep exfoliation of skin’s topmost layer – the stratum corneum. This results in a greater cell turnover and enhanced collagen production, thereby pushing the newer skin cells to the surface. We have peels suitable for all skin types, and they are great for both men and women!
Peels differ from enzyme exfoliation in that they can be more inflammatory, and they create tiny wounds by pulling apart surface proteins in order to stimulate the wound repair mechanism in the skin. As this can result in mild inflammation, peels are generally not recommended for those with inflammatory skin conditions such as some types of inflammatory acne or rosacea or dermatitis.
Our FittSkin Base Peel range are lower strength peels with little to no downtime (ie no shedding is generally experienced). They are a fantastic introduction to peels and great for more sensitive skin that may not tolerate a stronger peel.
Our Tier 2 and 3 range of peels utilise Circadia products and are perfect for those with skin that is used to regular skin treatments and who don’t mind some downtime.
