Have you ever wanted to get a Chemical Peel but have been too afraid to???
I was terrified, that is until I completed my training for the Biosurface Peel and got to experience it for myself.
Now to be completely honest I was nervous as hell and had sweaty hands and didn't know what to expect.
I thought I would need to hide out in a darkened room until the lepper type skin peeling had subsided and I was fit to be seen in public once more, not to mentiin the burn your face off pain that I expected to come with it.
Oh how wrong I was!!!!!
The experience was calming and pleasant!! I mean who can honestly say that they have had an intense multi layered chemical Peel and had it be a calming experience. ME!!!
I think the thing that I found most appealing about the process was the fact that the skin is slowly brought down to the pH required to achieve the most effective peel. This is not the case with most conventional peels which is why they tend to be quite uncomfortable if not painful.
I absolutely loved the way my skin felt during and especially after the treatment. With a post peel product pack provided I went away feeling confident and reassured that my skin was in the best hands.
Over the next couple of days post peel I continued using the the required products. I found that I had some dryness and tightness which is completely normal, but the moisturiser I used relieved any of those symptoms immediately.
I am not one to go makeup free as I have persistent redness and pigmentation that leaves my skin a little blotchy and uneven but I absolutely loved how even and clear my skin was and continues to be.
The photos attached (sorry for the poor lighting, are left, immediately before peel and right, immediately after. My redness and sensitivity is actual less post peel than before, not to mention the dramatic inprovement in skin tone and texture just from one treatment.
Since my first peel I have had a course of 6 treatments over a 12 week period and have noticed that a lot of the fine lines and wrinkle have filled out and become smooth. The pigmentation around my eye is almost gone and my skin has never been stronger or healthier with next to no redness at all. I have gone from using mostly Ultra Calming products to being able to transition to the standard and advanced product lines including Retinol.
I am hooked and completely converted to Dermalogica's new Biosurface peel and have already seen these dramatic results with my clients who are just as happy and committed to the benefits of this revolutionary product.
Happy skin, happy therapist.
