  • Beta Hydroxy Peels

    A Beta Hydroxy Peel is a superficial quick, no downtime procedure that renew the skin by lifting dead cells off the surface of your skin and stimulating metabolism of the cells underneath. With a series of Beta Hydroxy Peels you can quickly achieve substantial improvement in the appearance of superficial lines and uneven pigmentation, while making your skin look and feel softer, smoother, and more radiant. Acne scars and enlarged pores may become less noticeable, and acne breakouts may be reduced. At Skin Renewal we use the Lamelle range of beta hydroxy acid peels.

      When should one start Beta Hydroxy Acid Peels?

      Read More
      • The skin is continually undergoing natural exfoliation. As one ages the epidermal cell turnover slows down and one's skin becomes dull because the topmost layer consisting of dead cells becomes too thick.
      • This dead layer can challenge the skin causing whiteheads, blackheads, rough texture and uneven appearance of the skin tone.
      • If one exfoliates regularly, new healthy skin cell are exposed to nutrients from the air, water and daily skin products.
      • These nutrients are then transported to the deeper skin cells where they are needed, improving circulation.
      • Potential benefits of Beta peels include fresher, brighter looking skin and
      • Better penetration of active ingredients of skin care products.

      After your initial consultation, you will be given a pigment inhibiting product which must be applied to the entire face daily for ten to 14 days before the peeling process can begin. This down regulates 6 enzyme pathways that produces melanin and will prevent the possibility of post inflammatory pigmentation PIH that can occur after any exfoliation procedure.

      • An added benefit is that the combination of peptides used in the range offers anti-ageing benefits to the skin as they stimulate collagen producing cells.
      • Luminesce used twice daily for 8 weeks will reduce the appearance of age spots and is safe for use on all skin types unlike traditional skin lightening cosmeceutical products as well as prescription medications
