At Lavish Looks Studio we provide a number of options for Chemical Peels including:

Micro Enzymatic Peel

An ultra-gentle skin exfoliator that uses enzymes and only targets dead skin cells, meaning this peel is gentle enough to use on all skin types and conditions. It promotes a smoother, brighter complexion while hydrating and softening the skin. The enzymatic micro peel is an ideal product to use after treatments including Chemical Peels, Photo Rejuvenation, skin needling and microdermabrasion, as it gently removes dry, rough or peeling skin without causing damage to the new skin underneath. 

Retinoid peels or Ageless Peel

Retinoids are the ingredient found in well-known skin products such as Retin-A. Retinoids help to increase the turn-over rate of the skin and make it behave more like younger skin. The Ageless Peel actively reduces damage caused by UVA exposure and is therefore an excellent choice for clients looking to reduce ageing caused by sun exposure. The main benefits of the peel are the restructuring and rebuilding of collagen and increased hydration, resulting in skin clarity and firmness. 

Peel Accelerator

Glycolic acid is derived from sugar cane, and Lactic acid is a naturally occurring acid in the body. These peels may be performed at various concentrations, which in turn vary the strength of the peel. Their main function is to remove the top layer of skin, promoting renewal of skin cells and a healthy cell turn over which leaves your skin fresh and smooth.

Purple Peel

This medical-grade, medium depth peel contains Lactic, Glycolic, Salicylic and Mandelic acid. An intensive peel, it is effective in renewing, brightening and resurfacing, which makes it the ideal treatment for severely pigmented and aged skin. The purple peel requires full skin preparation three to four weeks prior to treatment with specialised skin care products. It contains beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), with salicylic acid being the most active ingredient used. This treatment is perfect for those with oilier or acne prone skins, as it is oil-soluble and penetrates deeper into the skin. BHA peels provide the most dramatic results for ageing, pigmented and problematic skin areas. The benefits include resurfacing skin by removing damaged layers, promoting healthy new cell growth, reducing pigmentation, normalising oil production and improving the appearance of acne scars, resulting in a youthful and clear complexion.

 Pre Treatment Advice

  • Two weeks prior to your peel of choice you will need to start preparing your skin:
  • For all peels – Cleanse once a day with a specialised cleanser recommend by your dermal aesthetician.
  • For Ageless Peel and Purple Peel – Cleanse once a day with a specialised Glycolic cleanser. The use of specialised pre-peel products recommended by your dermal aesthetician is essential in order to prepare your skin for the treatment, reduce side effects and provide the best possible results.
  • This skin care regimen will build up your skin’s strength to obtain the treatment, help in the skin peeling more evenly and speed up the healing process after your peel.
  • It is also essential to protect your skin from sun exposure and use an SPF30+ sunscreen every day.
  • If you have a tan the procedure may have to be postponed.
  • Do not pluck, wax or bleach at least two weeks prior to treatment.
  • Do not use Retin-A for two weeks or Roaccutane for at least 6 months prior to treatment.

Post Treatment Advice

Post-treatment care will depend of the type of peel performed and your skin’s reaction to the peel. Our therapists will be able to give you the right post-treatment advice that is specific for the type of peel you have had.

  • After your peel, the skin will be tender and will need gentle care.
  • Do not pick. The most important thing to remember after a Chemical Peel is to steer clear of picking, scrubbing or peeling the skin away yourself. Removing the skin prematurely can lead to complications such as hyper-pigmentation. To gently remove dead skin the use of Skinstitut’s Enzymatic Micro Peel is recommended a few days after the peel is performed.
  • Avoid scrubs, exfoliants and acne cleansers unless otherwise instructed. These products will only further irritate the skin, therefore slowing down the healing process.
  • Again, it is essential to protect your skin from sun exposure. Make sure to use an SPF30+ or greater every day.
