FACIALS VS PEELS

What Can I Expect From a Skin Peel Treatment And How Do I Determine Which Peel Is Suitable For My Skin?

At A1 Skin we offer different peels to cater for different skin types. Our therapists determine the intensity of the peel and the frequency of sessions you will require to achieve the desired results. Chemical peel treatments cleanse and refine the top layers of your skin. This can help minimise the appearance of wrinkles, dullness, hyperpigmentation, and scarring. It may also help with skin disorders such as acne and rosacea. At your initial consultation, the therapists will utilise our Observ 520x skin analysing system to accurately diagnose your skin condition to ensure the right peel is selected for your treatment.

What Is The Best Skin Peel Treatment?

At A1 Skin, we offer a variety of different peel treatments from industry leading skincare brands. Following your initial consultation, our Dermal Therapist will assign a skin peel treatment suited to your skin type/concerns. Our skin peel treatments look to achieve superior results as well as treating acne, ageing, pigmentation and more. Therapists may use additional modalities such as LED to enhance your skin peel results.

Can You See Results After 1 Peel?

Yes, you will see results after your first treatment. The skin looks visibly brighter, feels softer, and adds an extra glow post-treatment. Results may differ from peel to peel due to how the ingredients progress in the skin.

DO'S & DONT'S

Don't pick at any flaky skin. Your skin is naturally turning over after your peel and picking may create soreness and even scarring. Don't use any harsh exfoliants (chemical (AHA/ BHA cleansers / toners) or physical (grainy scrubs) for at least 3 days post-peel. Don't spend extended periods of time in direct sunlight. Always wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin. Stick to the aftercare regime recommended by our skin therapists. This will ensure that your skin recovers and rejuvenates as quickly as possible post-peel. If you have any questions or concerns, give your therapist a call so they can offer you tailored advice. At A1 Skin we are always delighted to assist.

Benefits of Skin Peels Treatments

Chemical peels are fast becoming the number one clinical skin treatment worldwide. At a fraction of the price of laser, they can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation and blemishes with less discomfort and downtime. Just 45 minutes in the therapist's chair can visibly rejuvenate skin to provide a softer, smoother, more youthful-looking complexion. But what should you expect when you embark on a course of peels?

Pre Treatment Care Tips:

With the exception of Vita Brite and Pumpkin, all treatments require prepping of the skin on Lira Clinical products. To help with this we include the Core 4 in our Peel Packs. See https://www.a1skin.com.au/ for more information.

Post Treatment Care Tips:

It is important with all skin peels to follow post care instruction given by your skin therapist. It is essential to heal, protect, and soothe irritated and sensitised skin. We must heal the skin!

+ - WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?

Medik8 chemical peels are professional-grade exfoliating acids applied to the skin with a small brush to help resurface and retexture.

+ - CAN I JUST HAVE 1 PEEL TO IMPROVE MY SKIN?

It is possible to just have a single peel, but we recommend a course of 6 to really see the long-term skin benefits. It's a little like going to the gym; you can go occasionally but the real results will come when you commit to an ongoing programme. We make starting your peel journey really easy with our Medik8 12 Weeks to WOW programme - basically 'personal training for your skin'. Our network of trained therapists will work with you over a 12 week* period to visibly transform your skin through a bespoke programme of in-clinic treatments and at-home care to achieve skin that really wows.

*Duration may vary based on skin type and condition.

+ - WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE TREATMENT?

This procedure has been used for a number of years to tackle skin complaints such as wrinkles, age spots, pigment abnormalities and other superficial skin problems such as sun damage, freckles and acne scarring. The benefits of Medik8 Skin Peels are:

  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduction of superficial scars caused from acne
  • Smoother textured skin surface
  • Colour irregularities improved
  • Fresher and more vibrant appearance
  • Softer skin
  • More youthful looking skin

+ - ARE PEELS RIGHT FOR EVERYONE?

Chemical peels are suitable for almost everyone and at Medik8 we have a varied range from our Sensitive PHA Peel which is suitable for very sensitive skins right through to our mono peels which use high-strength single acids that can even be layered to target stubborn concerns. Certain skin conditions / people may be 'contra-indicated' and therefore shouldn't go down the peel route until skin is normalised. However, there are lots of other treatment options we offer at A1 Skin for simplistic individualised results.

+ - WHAT'S THE DOWNTIME?

By definition, the application of acids to the skin may cause redness, skin flaking and mild peeling; but every skin is different. We recommend not to wear makeup for the first 12 hours post-peel to ensure the skin remains bacteria-free. You will be recommended a comprehensive aftercare routine to continue with at home to ensure your skin recovers and rejuvenates correctly. As a general rule, expect flaking from around the 3rd day post-peel for a maximum of 5 further days. You should avoid direct sun exposure during these recovery days and always wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. We recommend clients go home with Medik8 Physical Sunscreen, which is a mineral, non-nano, broad spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 which provides great protection and as a mineral sunscreen is very gentle on compromised skin.

+ - WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

24 hours post-peel your skin will likely feel a little tight and appear slightly flushed. Within 3 days your skin will start to flake but within the week you will start to see clearer, more uniform skin tone. Over a course of 6 peels, results will be even more visibly profound. We recommend taking pictures of your progress either on your own phone or many of our clinics have facial imaging equipment that can extensively track your skin's improvement across such parameters as wrinkle depth, clarity, water content etc; dependant on the skin concern you are treating. Fascinating stuff. Search Instagram for #Medik8WOW for the very latest 12 Weeks to WOW results from around the globe.

+ - CAN PEELS BE USED ALONGSIDE OTHER TREATMENTS LIKE BOTOX OR LASER?

Absolutely. Discuss with our cosmetic injectors to get their advice on which additional treatments would be right for you.
