Under the Micro-Scope: Chemical Peels in Edgecliff
One of the most a-peeling ways we know to achieve radiant skin is with a micro-peel. At our practice in Edgecliff, we offer a wide range of options to ensure every patient receives the customised skincare treatment s/he needs. At the top of our list is the two-bangs-for-your-buck micro peel. It combines
- Renewing effects of a superficial chemical peel
- Rejuvenating benefits of microneedling
One of many advances in the aesthetic industry has been the bundling of treatments. “Combining complementary treatments can help patients achieve higher levels of facial rejuvenation while saving time and, in some cases, money,” says Dr Marcells. “A micro peel harnesses the benefits of skin-brightening microneedling to the surface rejuvenation achieved with an AHA chemical peel, delivering results that outshine either treatment.”
A micro-peel does more than make you look beautiful. It helps you stay beautiful. The treatment improves your skin’s receptiveness to restorative emollients long after your treatment has ended. “A micro-peel lets you enjoy greater penetration of the skin-saving moisturisers, vitamins, and antioxidants that keep your complexion glowing,” says Dr Marcells.
AHA Is A-OK For Your Skin
Have you ever used an over-the-counter chemical peel or visited a beauty clinic for a facial exfoliation and ended up with red, inflamed skin? It’s not uncommon. OTC peel products and peels administered by inexperienced technicians are one size fits all, with no regard for an individual’s unique skin characteristics. The ingredients are often too harsh and cause more damage than good.
The chemical we use in our micro peels is Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA). These mild, skin-friendly acids include fruit, lactic, and glycolic acid. They only penetrate the superficial layer of the skin, but they help give patients a more youthful complexion by
- Exfoliating dead, dull surface skin
- Smoothing rough skin
- Improving mild discolouration
- Adding suppleness
- Reducing pore size
- Repairing sun damage
Collagen Induction Therapy with DermaPen
Over time, skin slowly loses its elasticity, becoming loose and misshapen. A natural reduction in the production of fibroblast cells, the building blocks of collagen, robs skin of its youthful appearance. Without a healthy supply of collagen, skin reveals its age with:
- Stretch marks
- Dull skin tone
- Fine lines
- Deep wrinkles
- Large pores
- Loose skin
Collagen induction therapy (CIT), also known as microneedling, rejuvenates damaged, ageing skin. It is similar to laser skin treatments, but without the unwelcome side effects and extended recovery time. We want the best treatment results for the patients at our Edgecliff medispa and that’s why we have chosen the innovative Dermapen microneedling system. It’s the industry leader in patient safety, comfort and benefits.
In the hands of our experienced operators, Dermapen creates micro skin channels. These tiny channels carry up to 80% more topical nutrients, supercharging the absorption of active ingredients into the skin. The process is a leading edge technique for stimulating repair at a cellular level to rev up the regeneration of epidermal skin cells.
