Medik8 Acne Beta Peel
Using a combination of the active ingredients Salicylic Acid and Dioic Acid this peel will quickly bring acne under control and dramatically reduces the risk breakouts in the future. The Acne Beta Peel simultaneously targets all three forms of acne: blocked pores, comedones as well as inflammation. By delivering the acid straight into the pores and follicles, it assists in keeping pores clear of cellular bacteria and therefore reducing the number of pore blockages and breakouts on the skin.
The best part about the Acne Beta Peel is that it can be used on other acne prone areas of the body besides the face such as the décolletage and the back. It is a triple action peel suitable for all skin types and is safe to do all year round and treatable on most skin types.
Mesoestetic Mandelic Peel
Specifically designed for clients with darker skin, the active ingredient in the Mandelic peel is Mandelic Acid which penetrates the skin to provide great results for correcting skin blemishes, acne, scaring, signs of ageing as well as superficial and deep wrinkles. In the past, clients with darker skin posed a high risk of hyperpigmentation after Skin Chemical Peels. Nowadays, while there is a very minimal risk (as with any skin treatment) there is now a specifically formulated peel that is safe and effective, targeted to those with a darker skin tone.
Healite II 415nm LED Phototherapy
Acne is exacerbated by the presence of bacteria. The 415nm blue light penetrates the upper to mid dermis (i.e. shallow penetration) in order to kill the P. acnes bacteria which multiply in the sebaceous glands.
The skin becomes inflamed when the cells try to fight these invaders. This inflammation is then treated by the white 830nm light to heal the wounds and calm the skin. It’s the inflammation that can lead to acne scarring, so it ‘s essential to treat the resulting inflammation to prevent scarring.
