MEDICAL GRADE CHEMICAL SKIN PEELS,
Medical Grade Chemical Skin Peels - £85-£95
Superficial skin peels are a safe and effective way to rejuvenate the appearance of the skin. Over time, factors such as sun damage, heredity, diet, and repetitive muscle movement contribute to the formation of lines and wrinkles in the face.
Skin peels are categorised as superficial, medium and deep. Superficial peels are known as lunchtime peels with no downtime, medium peels will experience some peeling on days 3-7 depending, and deep peels are done by doctors only and require very long downtime and are anti-social.
I believe that medium and deep peels are just too much for the skin and are just not needed. Superficial peels performed in a course of 4-6 is sufficient to see visible results that are long lasting.
Alpha-hydroxy acids are naturally occurring acids which include glycolic acid, mandelic acid and citric acid.
With little to no downtime, superficial peels are a safe, effective method of treating fine lines, pigmentation abnormalities, acne scars, and persistent dry skin.
Having a skin peel after a dermaplaning facial is even more beneficial as the skin peel can penetrate more effectively into the skin with better and longer lasting results.
I would personally recommend that my clients have skin peels on a weekly or fortnightly basis for optimum results - this is also based on my own experience on using these skin peels on myself.
These peels are different to AHA peels as they work more from within the skin than from the outside.
The advanced, physician-strength NeoStrata® ProSystem retinol peel works to exfoliate, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, help reduce acne and improve skin laxity while promoting a bright, even and clear complexion.
What is the main difference between a NeoStrata® retinol peel and a NeoStrata® rejuvenating peel?
NeoStrata Rejuvenating Peels contain glycolic acid; they are the original “lunchtime” peels, earning the name because they provide benefits with little to no downtime. NeoStrata Retinol Peel is a higher strength peel that provides benefits with visible peeling and flaking. Peeling occurs 2-3 days after the peel and lasts up to a week.
AVAILABLE SKIN PEELS
Your skin peel will be chosen by me once a thorough skin assessment has been done, bearing in mind your skin goals.
For every new client, I will always start with the lowest peel so that we can see how your skin behaves and reacts.
Going in to string and harsh without building up a tolerance to peels will cause trauma and post inflammation to .your skin - not what we want. A lot of people incorrectly think that using the highest % available will sole all their skin issues faster when in fact the opposite is true!
I have the following peels available:
NeoStrata® ProSystem (AHA) Rejuvenating Peel - 20% glycolic acid
NeoStrata® ProSystem (AHA) Rejuvenating Peel - 35% glycolic acid
NeoStrata® ProSystem (AHA) Clarifying Peel - 30% mandelic & citric acid
NeoStrata® ProSystem Retinol Peel - 1% retinol
NeoStrata® ProSystem Retinol Peel - 3% retinol

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® 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.
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....
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 you will feel a slight burning sensation. 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.
