& Skin Peel Packages
Combining microneedling with skin peels is a match made in heaven!
Directly targeting the skins' renewal mechanisms through stimulation of collagen and elastin production with microneedling, will provide a long lasting effect below the surface of the skin; while AHA and retinol peels help to resurface and refine the existing epidermis allowing the new, vibrant skin cells to be revealed.
Since we can only safely perform, microneedling and/or skin peels every 3-4 weeks to allow for proper healing I would suggest we alternate microneedling and skin peels.
For example: Month 1; microneedling. Month 2; AHA skin peel. Month 3; microneedling. Month 4; retinol peel and so on.
This approach allows for maximal healing in between needling and peeling sessions and gives the skins regeneration processes time to stabilise between sessions.
Microneedling and skin peels work with the skin to generate new collagen and elastin naturally. The ultimate effects of microneedling will appear at their best between 2 and 3 months after the final treatment... before the process gradually begins to slow down again.
Therefore I recommend maintenance treatments of microneedling 2-3 times per year to maintain the desired result. Regular peels will keep your skin looking its absolute best, and daily use of targeted skin care products which I can tailor to you, will support the salon treatments.

WHAT MAKES THESE PEELS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN OTHERS AVAILABLE IN NORWICH?
Like with anything, you get what you pay for and not all skin peels are created equal. NeoStrata® was founded by the scientists who discovered glycolic acid and patented the first glycolic peel and are now the leaders in scientifically & clinically proven skincare. They also own the patents to 'Bionic Polyhydroxy Acids', 'Neoglucosamine®' & 'Aminofil®'; all clinically & scientifically proven to yield outstanding and unrivalled results.
These added ingredients to the peels (only available in NeoStrata® & Exuviance® products) give much more than just a 'peeling' effect or 'exfoliation' of the skin like other peels do, as these plump the skin, have scientifically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles with clinical evidence (see pictures above as proof), as well as induce collagen and eliminate any PIH (post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation) in the skin and reduce inflammation.
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE TO HAVE A NEOSTRATA® PEEL WITH YOU?
As said above, not all chemical peels are created equally. It is important to realise there is a lot of science behind these products and the combination, design, size and action of the molecules forming the basis of each product applied to the skin has everything to do with the results that can be achieved.
In 1974 the founders of NeoStrata® discovered the profound benefits of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) on skin, setting in motion a reputation for discovery and innovation in skincare that continues today.
So, please choose your peel wisely. An inferior product will often lead to an inferior result and mean that more treatments are required to achieve a similar result to a Neostrata® peel. Also, please bear in mind that the best results with skin care are always achieved when the integrity of the skin is respected and maintained. Products that are gentle but effective will always achieve the best results with minimum complications and risks of side effects....
Going in hard and fast with high percentage peels will results in over-sensitised skin that won't respond to skin care and will be constantly red, inflamed and sore!
WHICH TREATMENT IS RIGHT FOR ME - MICRONEEDLING, SKIN PEELS OR BOTH?
Both! Microneedling and skin peels yield similar end results, but each one achieves this in a uniquely different way.
Microneedling rebuilds the skins structure by repairing damage caused by acne scarring, UV exposure, fine lines and wrinkles, melasma (brown spots) premature ageing etc and skin peels renew, regenerate & invigorate the skin in a more preventative manor.
Think of it as; microneedling repairing the past and skin peels preparing for the future. Therefore, both methods work synergistically to drastically improve the skin.
The AHA peels and Retinol peels also work fantastically when alternated, as the AHA peels work more on the surface of the skin, whereas the retinol peels work beneath the skin.
WHO ARE SKIN PEELS FOR?
Clients with mature skin will benefit the most, but essentially clients of all ages will benefit. Younger clients can use skin peels to keep their complexion fresh in the prevention of wrinkles and fine lines.
Skin peels can benefit: inflammatory and non-inflammatory acne, blackheads and comedones, rough texture, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, skin ageing and photo damaged skin.
Skin peels are recommended weekly or fortnightly for optimum results.
WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CHEMICAL PEELS AND SUPERFICIAL PEELS?
Chemical peels penetrate much deeper into the skin than superficial peels and carry much more risk of skin burning and downtime.
It is always preferable to have more frequent superficial skin peels on a weekly or fortnightly basis, than one medium or deep chemical peel.
The results are more beneficial and by far the safer option as chemical burns are real!
DO SKIN PEELS HURT?
There should be no actual 'pain' during the procedure, but with the AHA peels, you will feel a slight burning/itching sensation for the first few seconds as it is applied. This is absolutely nothing to worry about and should only feel at a level 2/10 pain wise. Your skin may be a little red looking or 'flushed' but will quickly subside.
There is ZERO pain with the retinol peels as they are applied in my clinic and washed off at home after a number of hours.
