” I had my first acne treatment peel a week ago. I have not seen any peeling or flaking…”
Do not fret as you are still in the early stages of the treatment. Patience is key with chemical peels!
The visible reaction caused by chemical peels during and post-treatment varies per individual. There are a few key points we will cover as we help you understand your skins’ response and expectations for your recent acne treatment peel.
1 | The waiting period
At this point, it is too soon to rate the success of your treatment. Your skin is still undergoing the process of lifting the layer of skin that was separated during the application of the peel. Once the skin has fully separated from the underlying skin cells, it will begin to shed. This can take up to 2 weeks.
2 | Not all skins shed alike
When we google or hear the term ‘chemical peel’, we assume our skin will be immediately shedding in sheets or visible patches of skin.
The visible reaction through the healing process depends on the skin type and condition being treated. Oily and acne-prone skin is coarser and has a thicker oil barrier holding the skin cells together. Shedding occurs most during and after cleansing and even so does not flake like a dry skin type. Trust in the process and use exfoliant 2-3 times a week for an added boost.
3 | Number of peels
Peels are most effective when delivered in a controlled manner in order to avoid injury and produce lasting results.
To begin, the skin is treated using lighter peels in order to increase the skin’s tolerance. With each treatment, the intensity of the peels is increased until optimal results are achieved. This measured approach allows for the application of stronger acids with less risk of causing adverse reactions or irreversible damage to the skin. Keep in mind that the stronger the peel, the more visible reaction during and post-treatment.
Although the name and online visuals of the treatment can lead one to believe that all peels should cause major flaking and sloughing, this is not always the case. Be patient with your progress and trust that your skin is operating in its’ own unique way and the skin is rejuvenating on a microscopic level regardless of what you see with the naked eye.
Are you struggling with ingrown hairs in your beard area?
Ingrown hair remedies are a top skincare concern for most males, especially in areas around the creases of the mouth area and neckline.
Although exfoliation and other skin resurfacing methods can offer mild relief, they do not provide a permanent solution to the issue.
So, what can you do to alleviate this condition once and for all? Our TOP pick for treating ingrown hairs is IPL Hair Removal.
What is IPL?
This advanced method of phototherapy is similar to the commonly known LASER Hair Removal treatment, as it delivers permanent results for most hair and skin types. IPL Hair Removal differs from LASER in the effect that it has on the surrounding tissue.
How does it work?
IPL Hair Removal targets active hair follicles with a rapid pulse of light into the bulb of the hair strand. This action causes the live bulb to self-destruct and dissolve within 2-6 weeks.
How effective is IPL?
IPL Hair Removal can deliver maximum results of up to 98% hair reduction that lasts 3+ years dependent on the treatment site.
Clients may need follow-up sessions to maintain maximum results 3 or more years following the last treatment date. Follow-up treatments required ranges from 1-3 sessions spaced 3-4 months apart.
IPL is one of the most effective ways of treating ingrown hairs because it not only removes the source of the condition but also helps alleviate some of the scarring left behind.
Sensitivity around the eyes can be caused by fragile skin. Fragile skin is easily irritated. It can become puffy or sunken thereby magnifying fine lines and wrinkles.
It is important to protect and nourish your eye area, therefore, make sure to use using proper eye care products and application.
Here are some tips to help you relieve sensitivity around the eyes:
If you already using eye care, add an extra dab of Contour Eye Lift(dry/mature), or Eye Restore (combo/oily) after applying moisturizer for an added barrier.
Ensure you are only applying on the ocular bone using your ring fingers in a dabbing motion.
Use eye care in the morning and at night. However, if the skin around the eyes feels extra dry, apply once more in between morning and night.
Keep products in a cool dark cupboard or fridge for added soothing effects.
Ingredients that work.
Keep an eye for the following ingredients when choosing your eye care.
Vitamin E has anti-inflammatory properties therefore, it helps stimulate the immune system, protecting the skin from adverse effects of oxidative stress including photoaging.
Vitamin K is used to prevent the effects of circulatory problems, for instance, dark circles, redness and broken capillaries.
Haloxyl stimulates circulation, helps reduce the appearance of dark under eye circles.
DIY Eye Massage to relieve sensitivity around the eyes.
Promoting blood circulation.
Blood circulation in the face supplies oxygen to the muscles and skin that helps reduce the appearance of dark circles.
The RELAX facial includes all the essentials of classic facial procedure. It starts with a steaming session and light extractions. After that, a nourishing mask packed with anti aging nutrients is applied. The facial ends with a relaxation-face/shoulder/arm/hand massage, and moisturizing paraffin hand-dip.
Keeping the wrinkles away.
In conclusion, using gentle products with active ingredients will firm and protect your eye area. In addition, promoting blood circulation will help keep away fine lines and wrinkles. Above all, book your spa visit to dérmica!
