Professional Peels

Peel to reveal fabulous skin

What is it?

Our chemical peels are a highly active solution applied to the face to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of new cells.

The aim is to improve the appearance of the skin – for example, by reducing age spots improving acne and evening out skin tone.

There are 3 types of peels, superficial, medium and deep. Superficial and medium peels are usually safe, as long as they’re done correctly. These type of peels are not permanent and they need to be repeated. Deeper peels are more risky, they’re longer-lasting and do not usually need to be repeated. However recent studies are now revealing that very strong peels can actually stress the skin out and make problems like hyper-pigentation worse. We prefer a progressive rather than agressive approach, the products we use target multiple skin concerns without compromise.

At EMERALD Aesthetics we use 3 specific peels from the COSMED range of professional peels. COSMED has the serious stamp of science and use FDA approved ingredients for targeting specific concentrations.

Derma Peel

Hydrating & Brightening

Suitable for all skin types, specifically formulated to use in conjunction with dermaplaning; Derma Peel Resurfacing Facial.

Lactic, Phytic and Kojic acids are powerful tyrosinase inhibitors and antioxidants. The Derma Peel will give your clients that mega watt glow with minimal downtime. This peel is also highly effective on dry skin as Lactic acid leaves more moisture behind than it takes from the skin and improves an impaired acid mantle or diffused redness. Derma Peel solution can be used for “high risk” skin types.

Regen Peel

Regenerates & Rejuvenates

This skin remodelling peel is comparable to TCA but with a greater safety profile. Pyruvic acid hydrolyses into lactic acid giving it all the benefits of a medium depth peel but without the risk and irritation. Addresses multiple skin concerns including photo-damage, acne, moderate scars, actinic keratosis, sun damage and pigmentary disorders. As a keto-acid, it regulates sebum and has a anti-microbial action, therefore indicated for all types of acne, post acne damage and oily skin. The lactic acid component prevents the skin from dehydration while the retinaldehyde regenerates.

Restore Peels

repairs& Restores

Mandelic acid has a unique antibiotic action and maintains skin’s acid mantle which inhibits the growth of p.acne bacteria. Restore peel regulates oil production, increases cell turnover and improves texture, pigmentation and acne.

It is safe and effective in darker skin types and ideal to prep the skin prior to heat treatments such as laser or plasma sublimation to help prevent PIH. Reduces erythema to help manage Rosacea and strengthens the barrier function. Contains Retinaldehyde in combination with powerful antioxidants to offer significant regenerative benefits.
