Glo Skin Facials and Chemical Peels

 

1. Improves the appearance of skin

Glo Skin provides professional treatments combined with homecare products to deliver transformative results for skincare. Researched and developed with innovative, active ingredients, professional products complement retail products seamlessly, delivering you a personalised prescription for healthy, beautiful skin.

A chemical peel is a topical solution applied to the skin to soften the dead skin layer and exfoliate the skin. Once those dead and damaged skin cells peel away, a clearer, smoother and more youthful appearance is restored.  Dependent on the peel solution being used and the client’s skin type, peels can be used to effectively treat the following:

Skin concerns that Chemical Peels can treat
  • Fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
  • Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and ageing
  • Treat certain types of acne
  • Reduce the appearance of age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma)
  • Improve the appearance of dull skin that will appear more radiant and rejuvenated post peel. Rough or uneven skin will become smooth
Before you get a Chemical Peel

Depending on your skin type, concern and peel formulation, your practitioner may recommend pre-treatment with specific products. If this is the case, it is important to follow your practitioner’s instructions to ensure sufficient preparation has been carried out prior to your treatment.

How Chemical Peels work

The peel solution will be applied to the skin. Your therapist will monitor your individual response to the treatment and this will determine the length of your treatment based on your level of comfort and key skin responses to the peel solution.

During your peel you may experience slight discomfort, which may include stinging, burning, itching, tingling or a heat-like sensation. Your therapist will ensure that your discomfort is managed effectively and it is only experienced for a few moments.

After a Chemical Peel

Initially your skin may be red and feel sensitive. Some patients experience stinging, burning, itching, mild pain or discomfort, tightness. These are all normal and expected results. It is important to remember that unlike other peels, you do not have to see visible flaking or peeling of the skin to achieve the desired results. You may notice that your skin feels rough over the next couple of days, due to enhanced exfoliation/light peeling. Many people experience fresh, clean glowing skin post-peel, and the short term results are a bonus, as the aim of the peel treatments is long-term skin health through a course of treatments and home care.

The expected duration of ‘downtime’ is given as guidance only and it is worth noting that the skin’s response to chemical peeling may vary from client to client.

How long will I peel for?

Although the anticipated downtime for superficial peels is around 1-3 days, in exceptional circumstances, clients may experience peeling for several days or even weeks afterwards. This will be discussed with you in more detail at your consultation.

How long before I see the results of my Chemical Peel?

Textural smoothening and improvements with acne prone skin can occur with 1 to 3 peels. Deeper textural changes require multiple peels. Noticeable improvements usually occur following 3 to 6 peels.

The most severe skin issues can take longer to improve. Results are best achieved in a series of treatments and may be combined with other types of aesthetic treatments to get the best possible outcome for your skin.
