SKIN PEELS

What are chemical peels?

Signature Skin Therapies are your go-to specialists for Chemcial Peel treatments in Adelaide's North East.

Skin peels are a rapid way to improve the skin’s texture and tone. By removing skin build-up and stimulating skin regeneration, our range of low to high strength, 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, please refer to the pre-treatment preparation below.

 

At Signature Skin Therapies, a variety of Skintuititive Skincare Professional Chemical Peels are offered. A virtual or in-person consultation is recommended prior to booking a treatment. Based on your skin type and skin concerns, we will choose a Chemical Peel to suit your skin needs to see effective, safe and fast results!

At Signature Skin Therapies, we offer professional grade chemical peel treatments servicing Adelaide's North and North Eastern suburbs from a private and professional space. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss your skin goals and creating a treatment plan to achieve the glowing, youthful skin that you desire!  

What is a Plasma Rejuvenation peel?

Plasma Rejuvenation Peel is an advanced skin treatment that is far more ablative than a regular chemical peel. Using our state-of-the-art Louise Walsh Plasma Pen, the entire skin is resurfaced with plasma energy, significantly reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, scarring, fine lines and wrinkles. We can treat any area of skin, including face, neck, decolletage and hands. Please note: This is an advanced treatment, numbing is required as is a pre & post-treatment plan. These are non-negotiables. Please refer to the pre-treatment preparation below.

Areas availble for treatment: Face, Neck, Decolletage or Hands. One or two areas may be targeted in a single session.

What is the CureNex Snow Peel?

CureNex Snow Peel offers an intensive rejuvenation that transforms your dead skin cells into newer and healthier ones. It consists of powerful ingredients that vitalize damaged skin resulting in smoother and more youthful skin. Bio-spicules from hydrolysed marine spongilla provides simultaneous peeling and total skin rejuvenation, achieving the equivalent of 3 microneedling sessions in one treatment. Also referred to as Bio-Microneedling, CureNex Snow Peel was developed to remove dead skin cells and promote fibroblast activation in the skin’s dermis. It also prevents the destruction of healthy skin cells during exfoliation by actively increasing the skin’s metabolism.

The Snow Peel Activator contains no acids at all, instead featuring a powerful skin rejuvenation cocktail including salmon DNA, Glutathione, and Gluconolactone. Gluconolactone boosts exfoliation and strengthens the moisture barrier - it is naturally produced in the body and is excellent for mild exfoliation, improving skin hydration and has a strong antioxidant effect. Salmon DNA or PDRN, short for polydeoxyribonucleotide, aids cell viability and can regenerate tissue by activating microvessels and fibroblasts to help produce collagen. Glutathione, also called Vitamin G, is an essential nutrient in the body. It helps remove free radicals and inhibits components that synthesize melanin pigments. While Niacinamide, known as Vitamin B3, reduces the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion while balancing your natural sebum levels for a glowing complexion. This powerful activator, known as C-TOX, continuously stimulates skin cells for 36 hours and induces natural exfoliating.

This revolutionary treatment offers all the benefits of chemical peels and microneedling, without the use of acids or needles.

FAQ

Do I need a consultation?

Yes. I always perform a consultation prior to every single treatment. Most of the time we can proceed with the treatment as planned, however in some cases, if your skin is not in the right condition to recieve the booked service, you will be recommended appropriate home-care products to use as well as one to two alternative treatments to get your skin in good enough condition that you will achieve maximum results from the desired peel. This is not the case for everyone, however if you are a skincare novice with a very basic routine, it is unrealistic to expect that you can go straight into a highly advanced skin treatment without prepping your skin first. Chemical Peels are not like having a facial and should not be taken lightly.

What are the aftercare requirements?

When you book your treatment, I will reach out to you with any specific information you need to be aware of and on the day of your treatment you will be provided with a copy of the post treatment advice.

Does the treatment hurt?

Generally speaking no, chemical peels do not hurt. Most clients experience mild to medium tingling, especially around the eye area. Numbing is not required for a peel.

Will my skin peel?

Depending on the strength of the peel, you will experience mild to medium shedding around days 3-5 after the peel. 

How many treatments will I need?

How long is a piece of string..? It is impossible to say how many treatments you will need, as everyone's goals are different and so is their skin. Generally speaking, 4 treatments are required at 2 week intervals.

How long do results last?

Results greatly depend on your skins condition, your homecare and how you maintain your skin with ongoing treatments afterwards. Results can never be guaranteed.

Are there any side effects?

We always check all contraindications to see if there is any reason you would have an undesired result. Immediately after the procedure, the treated area will be quite red and occasionally swollen. This can last from 1-3 days. As the skin renews itself and sheds the upper layers, it's important to remember not to peel the skin off before it is ready.

Is there anything that can make me not suitable for treatment?

– Pregnant/Possibility of being pregnant

– Herpes – do not treat if active in the area of intended treatment

– Diabetes insulin dependent – doctors consent (slow healing)

– Eczema or psoriasis – do not treat if active in the area of intended treatment

– Active Vitiligo
