What is skin peeling?
Skin peeling involves an application of a chemical solution to sun-damaged, unevenly pigmented, acne prone and finely wrinkled facial areas. The procedure is meant to diminish imperfections by peeling away the skin's top layers. It has proven to be a very popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure. Chemical peels vary according to their specific ingredients and their strength. Depth of peeling action may also depend on factors such as how long solutions remain on the skin and whether they are applied lightly, heavily or vigorously.
Photoageing is the process by which skin is changed or damaged as a result of exposure to ultraviolet radiation in sunlight and other sources such as smoking, pollution, stress, diet, etc. Dermal components are broken down rapidly and the long-term effect of this process on the skin include wrinkles and/or discoloration. Ultraviolet radiation is responsible for up to 80% of all skin ageing.
This treatment protocol is designed to treat and prevent the breakdown of the dermal components which result in dermal scars (elastosis) or as they are commonly known: wrinkles. Lamelle's range of highly active treatments have proven to be extremely successful in treating ageing skin due to innovative technology.
Acne and problematic skin
Acne is a common skin disease characterized by pimples on the face, chest, and back. It occurs when the pores of the skin become clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. Nearly 85% of people develop acne at some time between the ages of 12-25 years. Up to 20% of women develop mild acne in their later 30’s and 40’s known as adult acne. The exact cause of acne is unknown however several risk factors have been identified: hormonal changes, diet, hereditary individuals with a family history of acne have greater susceptibility to the disease.
The environment exposure to oils, grease, polluted air, sweat and polluted water may also contribute to problematic skin. Stressful lifestyle conditions can also contribute to problematic skin. This treatment protocol is designed to treat and prevent the excess sebum, dead skin cells and bacteria from clogging the pores and eventually leading to problematic skin.
Lamelle's highly active treatments have proven to be extremely successful in treating problematic skin due to innovative technology and ingredients.
Hyperpigmentation is when the skin appears dark, blotchy and uneven in colour. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin colour, forms excess deposits in the skin as a form of protection.
There are different forms of hyperpigmentation which differ in their depth and cause for the darkening. Hyperpigmentation can affect the skin colour of people of any race, although darker skin types tend to struggle more. Hyperpigmentation is a very difficult condition to treat depending on the different depths that it may occur:
There are a number of different factors that can trigger hyperpigmentation:
Revitalisation is the restoration of the skin to an active or fresh condition.. Revitalization of the skin includes treatment options which improve the function of the skin and stimulate cellular replacement from the basal layer to create a younger, more hydrated, healthier looking skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does a treatment take?
The peel itself is usually no longer than five minutes. But there is usually prepping and care involved, so bank on a at least 15 minutes.
What does it feel like?
It depends on the product used. Alpha and Beta peels cause only some tingling, while a TCA peel is slightly more intense. Any discomfort subsides after a minute or two, though.
What about after the treatment?
On average, with Alpha and Beta peels, your skin will look youthful and glowing. It may be a little red, but that will subside very quickly. With a TCA peel, some recovery time will be needed.
How long do the results last?
With proper home care, months or even years.
