Our Cosmetic Peels are Customised for Your Skin
We consider ourselves fortunate here at About Face. We’re passionate about skincare and privileged to work with patients who share our passion. Many of them are part of the “new breed” of beauty consumers. They’re demanding and savvy and always on the lookout for solutions to address their individual skin care needs. They know there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all skincare regimen, any more than there’s a one-size-fits-all bikini. (Although, according to a Business Insider article, one-size-fits-all jeans are trending.)
If you haven’t already done so, we want you to consider a customised chemical peel at the About Face. A tailored-to-you-alone skin peel will nourish and heal your skin. It will also help you avoid skin irritation as you reveal fresh, radiant skin that will rejuvenate your entire appearance.
Reasons We Love Customised Chemical Peels
At About Face, we use peels developed by Dermaceutic Laboratoire. Their peels are used exclusively by aesthetic dermatology specialists to treat wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation problems, and a variety of skin conditions. Dermaceutic provides a range of peeling options, enabling our team to customise each treatment to a patient’s specific skin problems.
Based on a personal skin analysis, our customised peels help our patients
- Speed up cell turnover
- Remove dead skin from the surface
- Hydrate skin
- Even out skin colour and/or texture
- Lighten age spots
- Erase sun damage
- Unclog pores
- Treat scars
- Beautify their bodies from head to toe
7 Essential Actions for Skin Health & Beauty
Dermaceutic helps us make a good peel even better. They have developed a broad range of homecare products designed to prepare, optimise, and maintain the beautiful results of a beautifying treatment. Each product is classified according to its action:
The Zombie Lie from Sex and the City
It was known for its sharp-edged, truth telling, but HBO’s Sex & the City got it wrong on the subject of chemical peels. In a famous episode, Samantha Jones hides under a beekeeper’s veil at a book party because she “looks like beef Carpaccio” following a treatment. This bit of mis-information has left a generation in fear of this poplar skin beautifying treatment.
Facial scrubs are more abrasive, literally, than chemical peels. Gritty scrubs exfoliate skin mechanically with an abrasive action. A peel, on the other hand, exfoliates with chemicals. The chemicals go deep into skin cells to disengage the bonds that link skin cells together or by coagulate the protein portion of the skin cell. In both cases, the result achieved with a chemical peel is a deeper and more targeted removal of dead skin.
Not Everyone Is a Candidate for a Peel
Chemical peels, regardless of strength, are not appropriate for people who have:
- Active acne
- Severe rosacea
For these individuals, About Face provides alternative treatments such as photofacials.
