Should I have a chemical AHA or BHA Facial Peel?

A question I often get asked is, (should I have a peel)?

In short my answer is a typical ‘yes’ because almost everyone can benefit from a peel treatment. With many options available there is certainly something for everyone. From brightening your near perfect skin to give it a little extra zest! Or if you are combating specific skin concerns such as acne, pigmentation or premature ageing.

A tailor-made treatment will meet your skin’s needs, leaving a fresher, visibly younger looking you.

No two skins are alike. No two peels are alike. For example, the products used throughout your treatment, although always Image Skincare, will alter from client to client. To accommodate this, Image Skincare offer numerous products within various lines. Also, the time in which the active peel product remains on your skin can vary greatly depending on skin sensitivity, the level of concern and the overall aim of the treatment.

A peel can achieve many things such as a brightened complexions, even skin tone and texture, reduced appearance of large open pores, acne scarring, lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, acne and even rosacea. Dull and lacklustre skin is instantly refreshed and revitalised, lines, scars and wrinkles are diminished. Blemishes and breakouts are reduced and controlled and your skin presents a beautiful, natural and radiant glow.

In itself a peel can work wonders. Alternatively it can be the stepping stone to more advanced treatments such as IPL skin rejuvenation and medical microneedling. A peel is a great way to prep your skin for such treatments, allowing the light, serums and products, in general, absorb better, thus delivering an even better result. Preparation is the key to success both in life and in skincare.

Like with many advanced treatments, there are some contraindications and cautions. Your therapist will discuss these during your skin consultation ensuring that a peel is suitable for you or something else may cater to your skin’s needs. A consultation is recommended a couple of weeks prior to treatment. It is here your skin therapist will discuss both pre and after care advice and answer any questions that you may have relating to this treatment and any skin related concerns.
