medical-peels

A gentle alternative for skin renewal, skin peels at Coastal Plastic Surgery contain powerful antioxidants and botanical extracts.

Once upon a time Peels used to be very strong, but now we have more gentle Peels that are simply an extension of a good skin care regime. Chemical Peels are one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures. A Chemical Peel can significantly improve the appearance of your skin and can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands & arms. Skin Peels create a healthy change in the skin producing a beautifully renewed complexion. Peels are safe and non-invasive, and can achieve excellent results with minimal downtime. Medical Peels involve the application of non-irritating solutions to the surface of the skin to remove layers of the skin cells, stimulate the growth of new skin and with long term consistent use, will create dermal changes to the skin.

Medical Peels are used to treat the following skin conditions:

  • Melasma/Hyper pigmentation
  • Actinic keratosis (precancerous growth of skin)
  • Environment/sun damage
  • Signs of premature ageing/fine lines/wrinkles
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Pre-condition skin prior to Surgery or Laser and Post Procedure care

Medical Peels work by exfoliating, brightening and increasing the skin’s natural moisture factor to produce healthier, better looking skin. Our Dermal Therapist will carefully assess your complexion and select the right peel for your skin type and condition. All are safe, efficient and chirally correct to generate immense activity in the skin. Initially a series of three treatments spaced four weeks apart will rejuvenate the skin with a personalised home care program containing active ingredients to sustain optimum results.

List of Peels and benefits

Cosmelan Peel: The Cosmelan peel is a one-off treatment and a real game changer. It’s designed to address all types of pigmentation concerns including melasma. It’s suitable for all skin types (even darker skin types: Fitzpatrick 3-6) and works to lighten and brighten the skin, equalising skin tone and increase luminosity. The treatment works by decreasing the skin’s melanin production by inhibition of the enzyme tyrosinase.

Mesoeclat Peel: This treatment helps promote the body’s natural defenses and cell regeneration mechanisms, giving the skin all the necessary elements for improved nourishment and optimum hydration. The result is a rejuvenating effect that brightens and revitalises the face in a minimum time span, leaving the skin softer and more uniform. Mesoéclat anti-ageing treatment is specifically developed to provided the greatest possible stimulation to the skin’s cellular defense mechanisms. 2 treatments in 1, a mild peel preps the skin while active ingredients brighten, revitalize, improve firmness and increase luminosity.

Cosmedix Deep Sea Peel: This non acid peel works to assist treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, photo damage, pigmentation and mild problem skin scarring.
The peel is incredibly effective due to the chemical reaction that occurs when the sea herbs are massaged into the skin, the released ions create natural chemical responses that initiate a cascade of cellular processes.
Simultaneously the release and deep delivery of minerals and vitamins from the sea herbs serve to condition and improve skin health.

Cosmedix Blueberry Smoothie Peel: Our Cosmedix refreshing Blueberry Smoothie scrub helps invigorate the skin with the use of a gentle acid, while the active blueberry extracts exfoliate the skin to restore a youthful glow without irritation. This Peel is a great skin polisher suitable before any event.

Cosmedix Timeless Peel: The Timeless Peel contains 30% chirally correct AGP complex to help rejuvenate the skin, improving fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation spots, sun damage and also alleviate common skin disorders such as Rosacea and acne.

Jessner Peel: A Jessner peel is a mild to moderate chemical peel, which induces superficial peeling of the skin. It has been used for skin rejuvenation purposes and is one of the most popular chemical peels especially for oily and acne skin conditions.This is due to one of the main ingredients of the Jessner peel solution being salicylic acid, which deeply penetrates the skin and removes congested sebum and dead skin cells. Jessner peels are superb for skin that suffers with blackheads, acne, congestion, enlarged pores, sun damage and pigmentation. Its strength and therefore its peeling effects can be increased, by layering the applications. This is dependent on a persons skin type, skin condition and desired outcome.

PCA Peel: This is an enhanced Jessner solution ideal for more sensitive skin types, ethnic skin or those allergic or sensitive to hydroquinone. This treatment will help unclog pores, clear acne and rejuvenate the skin with its blend of brighteners and alpha and beta hydroxy acids. This Peel is great when combined with an Oxygenating Trio Peel which corrects and prevents free radical damage as oxidative and environmental stress of skin is one of the more significant contributors to the ageing process. This Peel draws oxygen to the surface of the skin releasing a radiant healthy skin.

Mandelic Peel: The Mandelic peel is a type of alpha hydroxy (AHA) peel, similar to glycolic acid and lactic acid peels. Because Mandelic acid molecules are larger than both that of glycolic and lactic acid, Mandelic peels are less penetrating and irritating, but still very effective for treating damaged skin. Mandelic acid peels are a great choice for a first-time chemical peel. Their antibacterial qualities also make them good for people with acne-prone skin. Because it is one of the gentler chemical peels out there, it is safe to use for people with Rosacea or darker skin tones.

Salicylic Peel: A Salicylic acid peel is a superficial peeling agent. This means that the first layer of the skin will be treated. Salicylic acid is a Beta Hydroxy Acid that is effective in treating oily skin, clogged pores and seborrheic dermatitis. Salicylic acid peels work well for those that have sun damaged skin, dull and lifeless skin, sensitive skin, dry or dehydrated skin, and uneven skin tones. Salicylic acid peels work for those with acne, ingrown hairs, wrinkles and fine lines and psoriasis. The use of Salicylic acid peels can improve the look and the texture of the skin on both men and women.
