CHEMICAL PEELING

Chemical peeling is a collective name for various treatments where active substances are applied to the skin to achieve skin rejuvenation and improvement.
One of the most common types of chemical peel is an AHA peel, which includes one or more types of acids. AHA stands for Alpha Hydroxy Acid and is a collective name for diverse types of acids, some of the most effective being glycolic and lactic acids. These acids occur naturally and are extracted from plants and are therefore sometimes also referred to as fruit acids. Milder chemical peel treatments are used, for example, for a general refreshing of the skin with a deep cleansing effect, to restore the skin’s radiance and glow and to reduce pores and fine lines. Stronger peel treatments are suitable for more aged and wrinkled skin. These treatments have a clear rejuvenating and smoothing effect and can also help to reduce scars and acne scars.
A peeling treatment helps to remove old and damaged skin cells along with impurities that are on the skin’s surface and down in the pores. It speeds up cell renewal in the skin, resulting in smoother skin with increased radiance, and improves the skin’s ability to retain moisture, helping to reduce lines and fine wrinkles.

What can be treated?

Introduction

Examples of what we can treat:

  • Coarse pores – cleanses and shrinks the pore size.
  • Pigmentation – evens out the skin tone of sun/age spots.
  • Moisturising – provides moisture and nourishment to the skin.
  • Luster – Old skin cells are shed and new skin emerges, giving luster and vitality to the skin.
  • Anti Age – Boosts cell renewal and prevents wrinkles/lines.
  • Acne scar/cell renewal increases and structure improves.

OBS! We discourage treatment if you agree with the points below:

Hypersensitive skin, psoriasis, eczema, infections in the area, pregnant and breastfeeding women, people using medication for acne (Roaccutane, tetralysal, etc., wait at least 6 months after finishing the cure). Newly sunburnt skin. You should not have sunbathed for a few weeks before and after your treatment.

What is included?

The whole treatment takes about 30-40 minutes including the consultation.

  • Skin analysis and advice.
  • Cleaning
  • Brushing with AHA/BHA in high concentration
  • Neutralizing serum
  • Soothing moisturiser.
  • UVA-B protection

What happens before treatment?

You will meet one of our certified skin therapists for a personal consultation where you will go through your problems and wishes together. Your personalised treatment plan is then drawn up with your skin therapist to ensure you get the best possible results. Advice and recommendations on products for skin care at home will be given during your visit. It is very important to avoid sun exposure for 2-3 weeks before and after your treatment. Usually a series of several treatments is required to achieve the desired result. Your therapist will advise you on this during the consultation.

What happens after treatment?

The condition of your skin will continue to improve soon after a course of treatments and in combination with recommended skin care products.

As for possible convalescence and side effects that may occur after the treatment, it varies a lot depending on the type of peeling that has been performed. You will be informed of this during the consultation before the treatment is carried out. It is common, for example, that some redness and peeling of the skin may occur to varying degrees. It is very important to avoid sun exposure for about 2 weeks after the treatment has been carried out.

Post and combination treatments

To further enhance the effect of a peel treatment, it can be combined with other types of treatments, such as moisturising treatments like CooLifting. For optimal results, it is a clever idea to follow up at home and supplement with skin care products specifically adapted to your skin type. Your skin therapist will advise you on which products are suitable for you and your treatment.
