Various skin imperfections can occur as a result of sun damage, acne, ageing or a build-up of redundant skin cells which make the skin appear dull and even rough in skin texture. DermaFix offers a variety of skin peels recommended for the improvement of specific skin care concerns found on the face, neck, décolleté and the hands and body.
DermaFix advanced skin resurfacing treatments leave the skin looking smoother in texture and brighter in complexion, whilst helping to increase healthy cell turnover. This visibly improves on the appearance of the below skin care concerns;
The process of advanced skin resurfacing involves the application of a safe, non-toxic chemical solution to the skin that gently resurfaces the epidermis, thereby removing the damaged and redundant skin cells. As a result, new cell growth occurs and a stimulation of collagen production is noted to reveal a younger, healthier looking skin.
Skin peels are classified into 3 categories being light, medium or deep. A light chemical peel removes the epidermis, the outer most layer of the skin. It is effective in treating fine lines and wrinkles, age spots and skin discolorations.
A medium-depth skin peel penetrates the epidermis along with the upper layers of the dermis. It is effective in treating wrinkles, acne, superficial acne scarring and hyperpigmentation.
A deep chemical peel penetrates the lower layer of the dermis and effectively treats deep lines and wrinkles, scars and hyperpigmentation. A deep chemical peel however, has an extended period of downtime.
All techniques of professional chemical peeling should be performed by a qualified Skin Care Professional in order to monitor the skins response and offer you the best possible results for your specific skin care concern. Medium and deep chemical peels should be performed by medical doctors only.
Frequently asked questions when it comes to chemical peeling;

DermaFix advise a treatment course of 6 advanced skin resurfacing treatments with 6 week intervals to obtain optimal results.
Can one experience downtime and how long can this last for?
Downtime can last for a period of time ranging from 7-10 days. This is dependent on the health of the skin as well as what peeling medium was applied. During this period of downtime you can expect the skin to begin with the shedding in areas that have the most movement being the eye and mouth area and working its way out to the peripherals of the face, ending up with the last remains of the shed being on the hairline.
