The Ultimate Guide To Our Skin Peel Treatments In Liverpool

The Ultimate Guide To Our Skin Peel Treatments In Liverpool

Skin peels are some of the most popular beauty treatments in the world today. It used to be that these facials were reserved for celebrities; however, at Aesthetics of Liverpool, we are bringing you the latest celebrity skin secrets with our state of the art skin peels. Our treatments are accessible for anyone from our clinic in the North West. Even if you are yet to know what a skin peel involves, you have probably seen people receiving them via social media without realising it! However, this guide aims to inform you all about skin peels and what a treatment session involves. 

Our skin peel treatments are a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment that restores and revitalises skin, revealing beneath fresh, glowing skin. The name ‘skin peel’ actually stems from the process of exfoliation that the treatment resolves around. The upper layer of dead skin is removed during a skin peel to reveal your new, fresh skin beneath. The exfoliation of dead skin encourages the body’s production of collagen, helping to give the skin the boost it needs to glow radiantly and produce immediate results.

Here at Aesthetics of Liverpool, we have over 50 different skin peels on offer, one for every skin condition, goal, type and concern! Our specialist dermatologists and doctors use a variety of brands and techniques to be able to provide skin peels of various depths and strengths. Keep reading to take an in-depth look at our three most popular skin peels. 

Skin Peels at Aesthetics of Liverpool 

The Perfect Peel 

This revolutionary skin peel works by directly targeting the skin at a cellular level transforming your skin in just one week. As a result, the Perfect Peel can help reduce the appearance and size of pores, rejuvenate the skin, and fight back premature wrinkles, overall creating a flawless complexion. What’s more, this skin peel treatment is suitable for all skin types and can help to tackle a host of other skin insecurities. 

The Perfect Peel is a game-changing chemical peel that utilises a synergistic blend of five natural acids (kojic acid, TCA, retinoic acid, salicylic acid, and phenol), additional vitamins and minerals, including the revolutionary antioxidant glutathione. In fact, The Perfect Peel® is the first-ever medical-grade chemical peel with glutathione!

All of these ingredients individually are extremely beneficial for the skin. For example, the five key acidic ingredients each have a powerful effect. Kojic acid has skin lightening properties due to its ability to prevent the formation of tyrosine, which is crucial in the production of melanin. These lightening properties help reduce the appearance of sunspots, age spots and even scars, overall creating a more youthful complexion. TCA (trichloroacetic acid), retinoic acid and phenol acid also work together to improve skin pigmentation problems whilst additionally helping to reduce wrinkles. When applied to the skin, salicylic acid promotes exfoliation, accelerating the shedding of dead skin cells, further reducing redness and inflammation. 

On top of these benefits, The Perfect Peel includes additional vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C. More importantly, this peel has the added benefit of glutathione. Glutathione is an antioxidant that naturally occurs in the body; however, as we age, the amount of glutathione depletes. Factors such as exposure to the sun’s rays, air pollutants, other environmental stresses and the natural ageing process reduce the amount of glutathione in the body. Replenishing this antioxidant is important due to its anti-ageing properties and ability to fight oxidant damage; crucial in reducing premature wrinkles. 

Unlike other skin peels that focus on the epidermis, The Perfect Peel is able to penetrate deeper into the papillary dermis. Due to the intensity of the peel, this treatment should only be carried out by certified and qualified professionals to guarantee maximum results. 

During your treatment and after a professional consultation, The Perfect Peel blend is applied to your skin’s surface by our specialist dermatologist. In just three days later, your surface layer of skin will have peeled away, revealing a healthy, glowing layer of skin below. Within the natural peeling process, any dead skin cells are removed, unclogging your pores and allowing your skin to breathe. Left untreated, these dead skin cells can block up pores causing them to develop into blackheads and blemishes as bacteria is trapped. All it takes is one session to improve your skin’s overall texture and tone significantly! 

Cosmelan Peel 

This peel is also known as the world’s number one skin peel! The Cosmelan peel is a unique multi-ingredient formula that can reduce the appearance of pigmentation and acne. If you are looking for a highly effective treatment for hyper-pigmentation, then the Cosmelan peel may be the one for you! If you are currently suffering from melasma, scar tissue or just blotchiness, then there’s no need to stress, as this skin peel is your answer.

The Cosmelan peel is effective towards hyperpigmentation as it focuses on decreasing the skin’s natural melanin production. To do so, the peels ingredients prevent enzymes within the body that are essential in producing melanin. Without these enzymes present, melanin cannot be produced, and traces of discolouration are lessened and reduced. If you suffer from pigmentation on other parts of the body, then don’t worry! The Cosmelan peel can be used on your abdomen, legs and hands, too, decreasing discolouration here! 

The Cosmelan mask is initially applied in our clinic and takes under an hour, depending on the client. The mask is then kept on for 6-12 hours. During this time, it is normal to experience a slight stinging sensation as the mask’s ingredients get to work. You will be asked to continue the next stage of the treatment at home and provided with everything you need to do so. Then, following our care instructions, you will remove the mask with the gentle cleanser provided. The peeling of the upper layer of skin will start approximately 2-3 days after your initial appointment; once the skin has peeled, you will see drastic results! 

Again, depending on the client, we may recommend you come in for a top-up appointment every six weeks to maintain these results. We recently expressed the impressive depigmenting qualities of the Cosmelan Skin Peel in a blog; you can read more about this skin peel’s relationship with pigmentation here.

PRX-T33

If you are slightly uncomfortable by the thought of your skin peeling, then this treatment is the one for you. Our PRX-T33 offers you all the results of a skin peel, minus the peel! Based on the TCA Skin Peel, our PRX-T33 treatment can help minimise the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. The treatment works by immediately tightening the skin with the added benefit of promoting collagen production, helping to revitalise the skin from the inside out. The PRX-T33 achieves all this by combining both TCA and hydrogen peroxide.

The TCA (trichloroacetic acid) and hydrogen peroxide work together to exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells by stimulating the dermis without encouraging the skin’s surface to peel. Despite minimising the exfoliation’s aggression compared to other skin peels, the PRX-T33 is still incredibly effective. TCA and hydrogen peroxide promotes the stimulation of fibroblasts and growth factors without causing inflammation or damaging the skin. This is due to the treatments ability to rapidly penetrate the skin to stimulate the process of regeneration without targeting the outer layer of the skin. Furthermore, as the treatment focuses below the epidermis, it can be performed at any time of year as it is not photo-sensitive and has no downtime. 

As we already know, TCA is extremely effective at regulating pigmentation and reducing wrinkles from its inclusion in The Perfect Peel. However, TCA is an important ingredient in creating the exfoliating and regenerative qualities of a PRX-T33 chemical peel. Its regenerative healing properties continues through the use of hydrogen peroxide. When hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is applied to the skin’s surface, the compound loses an oxygen atom. The skin absorbs this oxygen atom through oxidation and, consequently, this process makes it very difficult for common bacterias to survive. With germs removed, the skin has a clean surface to heal and rejuvenate. However, despite its benefits, we recommend hydrogen peroxide be only applied by a professional dermatologist within a professional clinic.
