Chemical peels

Chemical peels

Facial peels are a rapid way to improve the skin’s texture and tone.

By removing cellular build-up and stimulating skin regeneration, our customised peels offer measurable results in the improvement of wrinkles and fine lines, sun damage, pigmentation, pore size, acne and oil production. Medi-aesthetic skin peels are especially beneficial in the treatment of hyperpigmentation, rosacea, general redness, acne, sun damage and ageing. Please note: preparation is required before some peels.

How it works
Don’t let the term ‘peel’ freak you out!

Chemical peels involve the application of a chemical solution to your skin in order to speed up the exfoliation process. They work by removing the outmost layer of dermis (skin) and accelerating your skin cell turnover. The strength of the peel determines the number of layers of skin peeled, the length of the downtime and inevitably, the final result.

Benefits

Chemical peels help to improve the appearance of pigmentation and any sun damage, acne scarring, in addition to reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pore size and an overall reduction in congested skin and breakouts.

Optimising your results
Let’s work together to see the changes you deserve. 

To ensure your skin is strong enough to tolerate the treatment, you may be required to prepare using active skin care products. Your pre-peel preparation may include a combination of retinol, vitamin C, a tyrosine inhibitor and glycolic ingredients.

Three days prior to your appointment, you will need to stop the use of any cosmeceutical retinols. Topical prescription retinol will need to be ceased at least two weeks in advance.

What’s the downtime after a chemical peel?

The post peel application process can take 3 to 10 days depending on the type of peel. Within 48 hours one can expect either light flaking or more substantial sheets of skin beginning to shed.

Can I wear makeup after my peel?

After your face peel, ensure you adhere strictly to your dermal technician’s post-care recommendations and avoid heavy makeup and ingredients that can irritate your skin, such as retinol. If you must apply makeup, use a mineral powder that won’t clog your pores, and make sure your makeup applicators are clean and bacteria-free.

The Dr Schrammek Green Peel

A new skin in 5 days

More than 60 years ago, Christine Schrammek provided the foundation for the original Green Peel Herbal Peeling Treatment which helps people with various skin problems to get a clean and even skin.

The basis is a mixture of eight selected herbs containing enzymes, minerals and vitamins, which are massaged into the skin. The Herbal Peeling Treatment was further medically developed and extended by her daughter, the dermatologist Dr. med. Christine Schrammek-Drusio, and is applied today by aestheticians and doctors worldwide. 

Green Peel Levels

The green peel contains the same signature ingredients but has been divided into different levels to intensity the strength of each peel to match your skin concerns. 

Each Green Peel is customized by making the following changes to each treatment:

How Does The Green Peel Work? 

The Green Peel is mixed up and is massaged using constant circular motions into the skin. The top dead layers of skin are initially removed to assist the micro particles of the herbs can penetrate. Once the herbs have entered the skin they increase oxygen and blood circulation to correct, protect and regenerate the upper most layers of the skin. 

As the herbs reach the deeper layers of the epidermis, the body indentifies them as foreign and will try to move them up and off of the skin as quickly as possible. This will in turn increase the natural production of skin cells, which is usually every 28-30 days to 5 days. This assists in lifting damaged skin and underlying congestion to the surface.
