So, what’s it like to have a Perfect Peel?
That’s an easy question to answer for us – because members of the team have enjoyed them first-hand.
Our resident make-up expert Zak was the third member of the team to experience a Perfect Peel. He said he wanted to try it to improve the overall quality of his skin, but also because he had some minor pigmentation around his hairline caused by sunbeds (which he no longer uses).
“I’ve had light chemical peels before, but this procedure felt very different,” says Zak. “The whole session lasted from 45 mins to an hour. It wasn’t unpleasant, but you do feel it. There’s a burning sensation but it’s very fleeting, it only lasts about 10 seconds. The skin afterwards feels quite tight and looks red in places, and you start peeling on day three. By day six, you are left with beautiful, smooth skin.”
Zak explains that there is a home-care kit that you must use during recovery. “You wash your face with cold water, and then you treat the areas you want to benefit most with easy-use wipes that contain powerful Vitamin C combined with Retinol. You do this for the first couple of days. It’s very straightforward.”
HR manager Anna had several sessions to eliminate the scarring caused by the acne condition, which had bothered her since her late teens.
“Scarring is very common for anyone who has suffered from medium to severe acne like I have,” she says. “Knowing how much this dented my confidence, Amie Hibbert suggested that I should try the Perfect Peel. What particularly appealed to me about this treatment was how fast it works – results delivered in a week. And it doesn’t need a preparation beforehand.”
Anna had also had peels previously, and ranked the discomfort felt during the procedure as a “5” on a scale of one to ten. She says she was able to resume her normal skincare and make-up routine after day five, once the peeling had stopped.
“A week after my first treatment, my skin texture had improved significantly. More importantly, my scarring had been visibly reduced. I was delighted with the results and very excited by my fresh, new skin.”
Aimee Piper (pictured) says she tried the Perfect Peel to show clients the possibilities of achieving great skin, as well as readying herself for the party season.
“I wanted to have porcelain skin and no pores for Christmas and the winter months,” she says. “Vie Aesthetics gave me the opportunity to achieve that. I had pores on my T-Zone, some pot-hole scarring and old, red scars on my cheeks. After one treatment, they were dramatically reduced, and my skin is satin smooth. Make-up sits on my skin beautifully.”
However, despite achieving instant results, Aimee Piper says that the Perfect Peel should be part of a longer-term goal and maintenance plan. “My journey has only just begun,” she says. “One session isn’t enough, and clients should understand that when booking. I will probably look to have up to three sessions, usually with four weeks in between. The end goal is to have gorgeous skin that requires minimal make-up.”
But Aimee Piper says that if you want to look your best for the party season, then the Perfect Peel will have you covered.
“Ultimately, the Perfect Peel is a staple treatment for you to enjoy one to four times a year,” she says. “But yes, it’s unbeatable to have before that big event, wedding, or Xmas party, to give you a complexion and make-up ready surface to be proud of.”
