Chemical Peels.

AHA Peel: A light chemical peel also known as glycolic acid peels or salicylic peels.

Glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that occurs naturally in sugar cane, is the most common ingredient of light chemical peels. The ingredients and formulation of a light peel however depends upon the specific client's skin care needs. The solution is left on the skin for a relatively short space of time and is then neutralised.

When applied to the face or another part of the body such as the hands or detcolletage the AHA peel solution works byremoving the outer layers of skin so that a new smoother layer of skin is revealed.

The action of the chemical solution stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, essential components of healthy, youthful skin.

 

TCA Peels: A medium chemical peel that penetrate the skin more deeply than light chemical peels. In administering a medium chemical peel,  a solution containing trichloroacetic acid is applied to the skin. This chemical solution, works by removing the dull, damaged outer layers of skin, those affected by acne, fine lines, sun exposure, and other factors.

In the days or so after treatment, these dead layers of skin slough off, revealing a new, smooth layer of skin.

TCA peels are popular because they are excellent "spot" treatments that can be used on any area of the body and can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. Typically a curse of treatments are prescribed a month apart.

These peels are known for delivering long lasting results after a brief healing process. They are ideal for addressing wrinkles, superficial blemishes, scars, uneven pigmentation including sun spots and dark under eye circles.

Medical Skin Needling using a dermapen.

Skin needling is also called micro-needling therapy or collagen induction therapy. It is a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure for facial rejuvenation that involves the use of a micro needling device to create controlled skin injury.

As each fine needle punctures the skin it creates a channel or micro-wound. The controlled injury triggers the body to fill these micro-wounds by producting new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition new capillaries are formed. This neovascularisation and neocollagenesis following treatment leads to reduction of scars and skin rejuvenation. Improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.

It can be used for:

Reducing scars caused by acne, surgery and burns

Fading stretch marks

Reducing fine lines and wrinkles

Dyspigmentation e.g melasma

Tightening sagging skin

It does not have the same downtime or side effects as other skin treatments and as I use a dermapen as opposed to a derma roller I can go deeper and more specific with depths in different areas of the face.
