Queen Cleopatra is known to have used soured milk to make her skin look radiant; her secret was the Lactic Acid in soured milk that was rejuvenating her skin. At ReformeMedSpa you don’t have to be a queen to have glowing, fresh looking skin.
Given that the outer dead skin layer is acidic, good skin care is aimed at using Ph balanced (slightly acidic) products that will regularise your skin cycle, calm hyperactive pigment cells, exfoliate any build up of dead skin, moisturise and repair the skin barrier and most importantly, protect the skin with a physical sunblock.
At ReformeMedSpa we have used our expertise and researched long and hard to select skin care and Chemical peel products that will deliver a safe, predictable and visible result to our patients.
These treatments use molecules like Glycolic Acid, Salicylic acid, Azelaic acid, TCA amongst others, that will exfoliate your skin at different levels.
Chemical peels are commonly used to correct and improve photoaging (sun damaged skin), hyperpigmentation (dark spots), rough skin, oily acne prone skin and fine lines or scars.
Depending on the type of chemical peel used, shedding of various layers of the skin can be achieved to give you a smoother younger looking lustrous skin.
Peels are classed as Medium Depth or Deep depending on whether the exfoliation is only of the dead skin or if it goes down to the level of the dermis.
A Medium Depth peel is a superficial peel that has been designed to have minimal downtime, it will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth and feeling fresh. Done as a course of 6 peels it will improve to an extent skin pigmentation, fine lines and acne scarring. It will not correct deep coarse wrinkles or skin laxity.
A Deep Peel will generally use the TCA molecule that can be used to predictably peel to the level of the deeper (Dermis) layer of your skin.
After the age of 30 years, the skin loses its ability to repair and renew that it had when it was younger. A chemical peel can deliver predictable exfoliation and renewal of skin, returning it back to how it was earlier.
The duration of the results you get from a chemical peel will vary from a few weeks to a few months, based on the depth of peeling. Almost all peels are done as a series of treatments separated either by a couple of weeks to a month apart.
When performed by an expert, chemical peels are a very safe procedure, with predictable results, that will restore the glow and smoothness of your skin.
Salicylic acid peels are excellent for managing Acne and related issues. Glycolic peels are good for controlled exfoliation and reducing pigmentation. TCA peels are very good for pigmentation problems. Our clinicians will choose the peel based on what problem needs to be addressed
