Since being introduced the research into these, amazing treatments has evolved and grown but the concept of a peel remains the same, and everyone can benefit from regular peels.
Peels vary depending upon the essential exfoliating ingredients, percentage of active ingredients, the delivery system and the peels pH level. There are several brands the Natural Beauty Spot recommends and uses; Medik8, Priori and Skinceuticals our preferred proven, professional peels.
The most popular and clinically proven effective professionals peels are made from AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids). The two most popular and effective AHAs are Glycolic acid (from sugar cane) and Lactic acid (from sour milk) as they have the smallest molecular weight and therefore the greater skin penetration. There’s nothing to be worried about, it sounds intimidating, but really AHAs will do wonders to your skin. Think of it as taking your skin to the next level by actually correcting it rather than just maintaining it. Worried about blackheads, pigmentation, acne, breakouts, dryness or open pores? AHAs will target these specific skin concerns and control them from developing any further.
How do they work?
AHAs work by exfoliating the skin to slough the dead surface cells off. This is done by loosening or dissolving the glue like substance that binds skin cells together. It penetrates at a much deeper level which creates a deeper exfoliation when compared to a mechanical exfoliation (granular scrubs). The skin is not damaged by abrasive or physical scrubbing.
The Natural Beauty Spot recommends that clients prepare their skin by using corresponding home care prior to having professional peels for 2 reasons:
- So the skin can become accustomed to the active ingredient to lessen the chance of any irritation
- To improve the results of the treatment
