Mild Flaking

Chemical skin resurfacers, sometimes referred to as mild or introductory peels, are superficial exfoliating treatments, meaning that they work on the very top layer of the skin.  They use enzymes and acids to refine and exfoliate.

Resurfacing treatments encourage your skin to refresh itself by creating fresh new skin cells whilst stimulating natural collagen production to help target the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

 

Resurfacers generally have little-to-no downtime following treatment. 

For optimal results we recommend a course of 6 treatments, with 1 treatment every 2 weeks.

The Treatment


Prior to Treatment: You will be required to book a consulation prior to starting your Skin Resurfacing course. During this consultation a skin analysis will be carried out to assess the best treatment for you. It is important to pre-condition the skin prior to any chemical peel by using professionally prescribed products in a home care regime to allow for optimum skin condition. Skin that is in balance with a hydrated epidermis, a healthy dermis and suppressed melanocytes will sting less, respond with less irritation and not react with hyperpigmentation. This will be fully discussed and recommendations made at the consultation visit. The Treatment: Following a thorough consultation and appropriate pre-treatment skin preparation, skin resurfacer treatments begin with a double cleanse and degreasing of the skin before the skin resurfacer solution is passed over the treatment area. The skin will then be treated with specially selected serums to sooth, hydrate and promote skin healing. DermaQuest chemical resurfacer treatments are completely safe and non-invasive. The sensation of chemical resurfacers will vary from person to person due to skin tolerance, skin condition, severity of a skin complaint and strength of the resurfacer, however most clients generally experience tingling, warmth and tightness, all of which mean the active ingredients are penetrating and getting to work on rejuvenating the lower layers of the skin. What will it feel like? Lactic Acid Resurfacer - you may only experiance a slight warming sensation. Primary/Power Pumpkin Resurfacer - your skin will start to feel warm. This will gradually increase for the first 4-6 minutes, before settling. Your skin will flush with a slight redness all over. Salicylic Acid Resurfacer - you will feel warmth with a slight spiky sensation. Your skin will go pink and a light powdered frosting will form. This is a normal response as the Salicylic Acid dries. MangoBrite Resurfacer and Power Peptide Resurfacer - your skin will start to feel warm. This will gradually increase for the first 4-6 minutes, before settling. Your skin will flush with a slight redness all over.




Is it suitable for me?


Chemical skin resurfaces are suitable for most skin types. It is important that your skin is in good health prior to this treatment, so you will be advised on homecare products to strengthen, hydrate and protect the skin barrier. This is especially important for darker skin types (Fitzpatrick 4-6) so as to not stimulate any postinflamatory hyperpigmentation. A patch test will be performed during your initial consultation to ensure you will not experience an adverse reation.




Contra-Indications


This treatment is not suitable if you are pregnant, have a hypersensitive skin or sunburnt/compromised skin. It is also not possible to have this treatment if you are taking skin thinning medication such as roacutane. Also if you are taking medication for any of the following: Diabetes Type 2, Lupus, chemo, or if you have an allergy to Asprin. Discontinue use of Retin-A products 7- 10 days prior to treatment.

After Care


Your skin may flush pink with a slight redness which could last for a few hours. After a couple of days your skin could start to feel dry due to the epidermal water loss. You may experience a light skin peeling/flaking. Your skin should be back to normal 3-5 days after the treatment. The post treatment care is designed specifically to restore, enhance and protect your skin, as well as optimise and maintain the results. DermaQuest’s professional resurfacers may cause increased sensitivity to the skin. It is important that 3-4 days post-treatment you ensure your skin is hydrated and protected with an SPF30. Avoid sweating, exercising, hot baths or showers, scrubbing, picking or rubbing, which could lead to scarring. Avoid direct sun exposure. Avoid the use of active skincare containing AHA, BHA, Retinol, Benzoyl Peroxide.
