Ensure every day is a good skin day, naturally
Medically reviewed by The Harley Medical Group Clinical Governance Board
It is said that youth is wasted on the young, and when they take their beautiful skin for granted we're inclined to agree! The fact is ageing comes to us all. Collagen production slows after the age of 25 and fine lines start to appear, and these soon deepen into wrinkles. We can't roll back the hands of time to your youth, but we can delay it while also reducing pronounced signs of ageing.
The Peptide TCA Peel is one of the most effective peel treatments available for more pronounced signs of ageing with excellent results including:
- More even and brightened skin tone
- Improved fine lines
- Substantially exfoliated skin
- Significantly reduced photodamage and deep wrinkles
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are plant stem cells and what do they do?
Botanical (plant) stem cells are extracted by wounding a plant, then placing the cells in water. They then undergo steam distillation, which produces the plant stem cell culture. The culture is places in a machine called a biorector; the stem cells are then suspended, filtered and freeze-dried to produce their 100% pure, active powder form. Plant stem cells are relatively environmentally friendly as they only use a small amount from a plant wound, and within a lab a little goes a long way.
Stem cells carry the entire DNA gene expression of a plant and can morph or differentiate into other cell types to help the plant regenerate. This ability makes them invaluable in many ways for cosmetic application. The benefits are vast:
- Protection from photodamage and oxidative stress
- Re-energising effect on tired skin
- Firms and restores elasticity
- Can protect skin from environmental damafe
- Brightening effects
What are peptides?
Peptides are chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins in the skin, such as collagen. When peptides form a long chain of amino acids, they become proteins. When they are in a short chain of amino acids, they are able to penetrate the top layer of our skin and send signals to our cells to let them know how to function.
For the most part, peptides take time to work. They are best applied in serums or creams for a long period of time - you can start to see results in four to 12 weeks. Keep in mind that upkeep is so important with peptides. Once you stop using them, you will notice the difference.
What will I experience during my Peptide Salicylic TCA Peel?
During your peel you will initially experience an intense heat that will calm after 30-40 gradually dying away. Afterwards you will feel a warm tingling sensation. Many of our clients report feeling uncomfortable, but say that the experience is manageable. Your practitioner will explain in detail what you will experience.
Directly after your Salicylic TCA Peel you may experience some redness and you will have significant skin peeling for up to 10 days post treatment. These are all signs that the peel has been effective, and the greater the reaction the faster you'll get results, so please don't be disheartened.
