A friend of mine turned thirty a couple of weeks ago. The day before her birthday she was stuck in traffic and happened to look into the rear view mirror of her car. To her horror she discovered that she had developed wrinkles overnight! She went into a flat panic attack and ran to the nearest pharmacy for some help (not for the panic attack, but for the wrinkles). Yes, you may laugh about that, but for her at the time it was not funny at all. Needless to say she is now on a rigid regime of creams and serums and is adamant that ‘something is working’. For the unfortunate among us that have passed that milestone a long time ago, we might need a bit more help than just a cream and during winter is probably the best time for some extra effort in the fight against ageing.
As our skins age and there is less collagen and more brown spots we have to consider a new action plan to rejuvenate the only skin that we have. Fortunately our bodies and skin renews itself, albeit a bit slower, so there is an opportunity to help the skin in renewing itself a bit faster and to reduce visible signs of ageing.
At Skin Renewal there are several types of facial peels that can be considered, and with the help of their team of professionals, they will be able to advise which facial peel will yield the best results for your specific problem.
Apart from the facial peels, the neck and chest (décolleté) area, hands, elbows, knees and heels should not be forgotten and these can be attended to as well.
TCA (Trichloricacetic Acid) Peel
A TCA peel is a quick, mild downtime procedure that renews the skin by lifting dead cells off the surface of the skin and stimulates the metabolism of the cells underneath. A series of these peels will make the skin look and feel smoother and more radiant. At Skin Renewal the Lamelle range of peels are used. It is effective for acne or sensitive skin, sunspots, hormonal pigmentation, dry, aging skin, enlarge pores and even acne scarring.
Before the peel is started you will be given a skin regime to prepare the skin for the treatment and afterwards you can expect to see a reduction in fine lines, more even skin tone, less pigmentation and best of all, a healthier, more youthful looking skin.
Cosmelan® and Dermamelan Depigmentation Treatment
Cosmelan® and Dermamelan has similar active ingredients, and the main difference between these two masks is that Dermamelan has a 20% higher concentration than Cosmelan® and follow up must be done under strict supervision of a cosmetic doctor. Both treatments will improve skin blemishes and have a very high safety margin. More specifically, it can be used for the treatment of melasma, brown spots, blotchy skin, hyperpigmentation and acne scars. The medical and professional staff at Skin Renewal will be able to advise clients on the best product for each person’s needs and which product will provide the best results for their specific problem. It is compatible with all skin types, light and dark and has a high safety margin.
For all the products discussed, as with all other peels, it is vitally important to maintain the treatment with home treatment to secure the skin improvement attained, and it is essential that a very good sunblock, at least Factor 30 is used at all times. So whether you turn 30, 40, 50 or any other unmentionable age, don’t smash the mirror, rather make an appointment at your Skin Renewal clinic and defy the imperfections caused by sun exposure and ageing.
