What is the appeal of a treatment that removes the top layer of skin?
These cosmetic treatments quickly give visibly improvement to the skin’s appearance. They are categorised by their depth.
The deeper the peel the more dramatic the result but alongside that comes a higher risk of complication. increased discomfort and greater recovery time.
Medik8 has a range of peels from superficial 1-3 to medium depth.
The most superficial is an Enzyme Peel which achieves pleasing smoothness and clarity without trauma or down time. Even if undertaking a series of peels it is advisable to start with an effective procedure that is without risk. No two skins react the same and the it never ceases to amaze me just how individual a response can be.
The enzyme peel is suitable for even sensitive skin although these might experience more intense tingling. The skin after treatment will be soft and smooth and receptive to hydrating serums but should not flake although the most sensitive may experience some flushing.
Expect to see a skin radiance with the skin tone appearing more even.
The preparation is a blend of 8 active active ingredients which have been selected specifically for their individual potency and action.
Among the key ingredients listed is
Papain which is a naturally derived enzyme that ‘digests’ the surface skin cells that contribute to dull complexions and uneven skin texture.
Pomegranate which contains ellagic acid that helps suppress UV induced pigmentation. Personally I am a huge fan of pomegranate as a sun protector.
Blueberries rich in antioxidants to neutralize free radical damage
Kiwi which is not only rich in anti-oxidants but also vitamins C,E,,A.
DOESN’T THAT SOUND APPETISING!
