Skin problem? All bases covered
The Perfect Peel is versatile and can be used for general skin maintenance, brightening your skin, slowing down the ageing process, and reducing pore size and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Alternatively, it can battle and reverse conditions such as acne, acne scarring, melasma, and pigmentation caused by sun damage. It means business.
For people with a phobia of needles, but who wish to smooth out fine lines, the Perfect Peel might be considered as an alternative to Botox. However, for clients who already use Botox as anti-ageing tool, the two treatments complement each other remarkably well. “This is especially true for clients who maybe have deeper lines who can’t achieve, for example, a smooth forehead with just Botox alone,” explains Aimee Piper. “Sometimes the doctor can only soften the lines, but by using the treatments in combination, the results of Botox can be optimised.” Regardless of your goals, as with any skin-based treatment, caring for your skin at home is essential to making the most of the Perfect Peel. You can’t maintain results unless you use the correct products between sessions.
“The Perfect Peel performs miracles to exfoliate skin deep down and give you fresh baby-bum skin, and to stimulate collagen and elastin,” says Amie Hibbert.
“There’s little point in having the treatment if you don’t use the appropriate products afterwards to keep your skin healthy and protected. All year-round skincare is paramount. You should use an SPF religiously to protect against sun damage, and invest in a Vitamin C cream, and a quality exfoliator and a cleanser.” How many Perfect Peel sessions you need, and how regularly, however, depends on your own situation.
“If a patient doesn’t have too many concerns, the Perfect Peel is great for making the skin healthier, smoother and brighter,” says medical director Dr. Ioannis Liakas. “Alternatively, we’ve had patients with severe ageing and sun damaged skin. In those instances, we recommended three or four sessions, with one month in between. Sun damaged skin gets thick and leathery, so we need to thin that down to normal thickness in order that any subsequent facial treatments will penetrate the skin and get to where they need to.”
