Why do I need this treatment?
Chemical peels are one of the most popular professional skin care services today because they can improve the quality, texture and colour of the skin. Often times people can be sceptical and almost afraid to have the treatment done as they are afraid of side effects known to be associated with a peel treatment, such as inflammation, discoloration and scarring for up to several months. With Pro Power Peel, you can get the same powerful results without the associated risks or downtime. In fact, your skin will look and feel healthier than ever!
How does it work?
Pro Power Peel is designed to work on the superficial layers/upper layers of our skin to slough off dead skin cells and resurface the skins texture. So in short, a peel will safely remove dull outer layers of skin which in turn increases cell turn over in the lower layers of the skin underneath and helps it to regenerate quicker to reveal a smooth, radiant complexion.
What is the downtime for the Pro Power Peel?
Dermalogica as a skincare brand stands on the core value of promoting skin health, so when they designed this peel, they designed it to work with the skin’s chemistry, not against it. There is literally no down time with this peel. Dermalogica opted to create a peel that can be carried out on a more frequent basis as opposed to pushing the skins natural chemistry to the point of severe inflammation and other side effect often times associated with other facial treatments out there. It literally redefines the ‘peel’ experience!
