Please don’t hesitate to try Chemical Peeling. The Skin Therapists at Ren Skin Health a local Beauty salon in Geelong are highly skilled professional skin experts that can assist with any skin condition.
Chemical peels are not something new. Cleopatra is one of the oldest users of skin peeling because she used to bathe in sour milk. The lactic acid produced by the sour milk is still used today in many chemical peeling formulas Including Image Skincare Clinical Couture Designer Peels.
While there are a number of acids that can and are used these days for a chemical peel, glycolic acid, originally derived from sugar cane, is one of the most popular alongside the hydrating benefits of Lactic Acid Peels.
People often think it is important to have a higher percentage of glycolic or another active peeling agent however the key is the pH- the lower it is the deeper the penetration. The pH determines the acidity or alkalinity of a chemical solution. As the pH becomes lower the acid’s intensity or strength increases. The efficacy of an AHA is dependent on its concentration and the pH value of the formula. Following a peel with a lower pH, it is important to then look after the skin by repairing and hydrating thus bringing the pH of the skin to a normal level. In order to be effective, an acid needs a lower pH than that of the skin, which falls between 4.5-5.5.
At Ren Skin Health one of our most popular peels is the Image skincare Wrinkle Lift, look for a peel that contains a blend of glycolic and retinol. This works to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving the skin firm and revitalised. The glycolic also acts as a catalyst for the retinol allowing it to travel through the layers of the epidermis into the dermis.
For Acne sufferers, it is important to look for peels that contain blends of alpha and beta hydroxy acids, and that also contains anti-inflammatory agents to effectively treat and heal the acne lesions.
We are here to help you by using Image Skincare Clinical Couture Designer Peels. The base of the peels is organic Aloe Vera Gel and your Skin Therapist will tailor each peel to you and your skin and we will control the peel concentration for zero or minimal downtime.
