Skin peels are often perceived as a treatment that reverses skin damage such as aging or pigmentation. But, they are also highly effective in preserving and preventing skin conditions.
Everybody has a skin type, the skin type is the base texture of your skin, for example, oily or dry. We then have topical skin conditions such as pigmentation, acne or dehydration. The aim is not to change your skin type, but to manage it such as adding more moisture to dryer skins and controlling sebum production on oily skins. You cannot change your natural skin type, only manage it. With skin conditions, it’s a little different. We can target more challenging skin conditions with the correct home care regime and professional interventions, such as skin peels.
Skin peels can sound a little overwhelming and it’s untrue to believe all skin peels will leave your face shedding for days. Medik8’s skin peels are formulated with time release technology, meaning they provide optimum results, with less downtime.
Medik8 Skin peels work by removing damaged and weakened skin cells from the epidermis. They encourage living skin cells in the basal layer of the skin to produce new and fresh healthy skin cells. Skin peels stimulate the fibroblast cells resulting in new collagen formulation. They also disturb cells in the dermis to boost the production of elastin and hyaluronic acid, giving a more plump and youthful looking skin.
