The chemical peel is a treatment that has been developed and used for many, many years. It has been used since the days of the Ancient Egyptians and has continued to be ever-popular at our Harley Street aesthetic clinic. But there are chemical peels, and then there are Perfect Peels. What’s the difference between a Perfect Peel and a chemical peel, and why should you opt for one?
When the Perfect Peel was first introduced to the world, it became a worthy finalist at the Beauty Awards in the category of ‘best new facial skincare treatment’. This revolutionary chemical peel is only performed by medically trained professionals in affiliated clinics and takes just 15 minutes to administer.
The secret ingredient to a Perfect Peel
The Perfect Peel’s secret ingredient that has never before been used in a chemical peel is glutathione, the ultimate antioxidant. This key ingredient penetrates deep into the cellular level of the skin to fight oxidant damage that results from environmental factors. Our bodies naturally produce glutathione but as we age, our levels deplete due to sun exposure, free radicals in the air, environmental stress, and the simple biology of the ageing process. Replacing this beneficial skin component and introducing it to deep layers of the skin even helps to rebalance melanin, improving the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
What’s in a Perfect Peel?
The Perfect Peel blends this unique ingredient with kojic acid, TCA, retinoic acid, salicylic acid, phenol, and a blend of minerals and vitamins. All of these components have vastly beneficial properties, helping to boost your skin’s vibrancy, appearance, and health. Kojic acid is a powerful lightening agent and proven to increase collagen production, which is a protein essential to skin laxity, resulting in brighter and tighter skin. TCA, phenol, and retinoic acid reduce wrinkles and smooth uneven pigmentation, while salicylic acid exfoliates the skin and reduces inflammation. All of these ingredients, including vitamin C, are widely used in cosmeceutical and aesthetic treatments, but combined they provide incredibly effective results.
But what does the Perfect Peel do?
With a perfect peel you could improve the overall tone and texture of your skin, lighten and brighter your skin, and encourage its prolonged health. You could reduce the appearance of stubborn skin conditions such as sun damage, age spots, hyperpigmentation, and acne scarring. Reduce your pore size, soften fine lines and wrinkles, and even slow down the ageing process with the production of new collagen. The Perfect Peel is suitable for all skin types, conditions, and requires no ‘prep’, allowing for fast and effective treatment. You could see a fresh glow in your skin after just one treatment!
Aftercare superior to that of a chemical peel
To follow your Perfect Peel, we’ll also provide you with a treatment pack, so you can optimise your results at home and ensure the continuation of healthy skin. This pack includes retinol wipes, which increase positive skin cell turnover and help brighten and smooth the skin. It also contains a vitamin C moisturiser to assist the peeling process and keep skin cells fresh and vibrant to enhance your results.
