The Difference You’re Looking For
Chemical Peels help to improve the appearance of the skin and help clients feel more confident and happier in their own skin. I work closely with each client to understand exactly what they’re looking for and ensure they get exactly those results. For more information on this service or any of the other services, get in touch with me.
I offer a wide range of Chemical peels to improve and smooth the texture of the skin.
Chemical peels help to resurface the uppermost layer of the skin to reveal new and healthy skin underneath, and are essential for maintaining and restoring skins health and appearance. The new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
Depending on the depth of the impact of chemical peels they can correct age-related changes, acne, hyperpigmentation, help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, treat wrinkles caused by sun damage, reduce age spots and melasma, enlarged pores, blemishes and uneven skin tone.
During the treatment one or more layers of chemical peel solution is applied for a specific amount of time. You will feel a tingling sensation that will go away after the solution is rinsed off and neutralized.
Chemical peels can be done on the face, neck, décolleté or hands.

RETINOIC ACID PEEL (YELLOW PEEL)
RETINOIC ACID PEEL (YELLOW PEEL) - 3-Retinol System combines 3 types of retinoids with different speeds of action. Retinaldehide with instant action, Retinol with prolonged action and Retinil with delayed action. This peel achieves a release of retinoids in the skin that is constant and precise. As a result, the therapeutic level of the active ingredient is constant and it’s conversion is gradual according to the skin’s needs.
Zinc addition enables the conversion of the different retinoids to retinoic acid and the very low molecular weight hyaluronic acid promotes the formation of the blend in the epidermis and dermis.
This peel causes minimal skin damage, has low probability of complications and has a short recovery period.
Retinoic acid, also known as tretinoin, is an active form of retinol (vitamin A).
Retinol is a retinoids precursor of retinoids acid. It accelerates mitosis, increases enzymatic activity and normalizes keratinization. It nourishes the skin, prevents the appearance of new wrinkles, reduces the depth of existing wrinkles, and increases the skin’s elasticity. Furthermore, Retinol attenuates the blemishes caused by excessive exposure to UV radiation, regulating mobility and proliferation of melanocytes.
Retinoic acid peel can also effectively cleanse the skin, has anti-inflammatory effects, makes skin glow, improves skin texture and structure, and provides a lifting effect.
Liposomed presentations allow for the transport of Retinol to the deepest layers of the skin, where it is released causing no irritation.
