Types of medical peels offered:
We offer a number of medical peels suited to your specific skin condition:
The Jessner Peel is designed to remove superficial layers of skin, dry out active acne, dislodge blackheads, reduce shallow wrinkling and scarring, help lighten hyper pigmentation and improve the overall appearance and health of sun-damaged, acne prone, aging skin. One of the main ingredients of Jessner Peel is salicylic acid that deeply penetrates the pores and removes congested sebum and dead skin cells. This solution may be applied in layers to provide a variety of results. It can also be used in conjunction with microdermabrasion for a deeper penetration.
Salicylic Acid Peel
Salicylic Acid is a great keratolytic which means it helps loosen the bonds between skin cells to promote exfoliation. Salicylic Acid is oil soluble and lipophilic so it penetrates sebum filled follicles & cleans out clogged pores, it is also good for exfoliating congested follicles and very is effective in the management of problematic skin concerns.
Photodynamic therapy is prescribed for the treatment of superficial basal cell carcinoma, nodular basal cell carcinoma and Bowen’s disease, but can also be beneficial for the treatment of acne, pigmented lesions and skin rejuvenation. Photodynamic therapy may also be prescribed for treatment of thin or non-pigmented actinic keratoses.
The treatment occurs in two stages;
- the preparation of the area to be treated and the initial application of solution,
- followed by led light therapy.
Over a few hours the drug is absorbed by the cancer cells, then light is applied to the area treated. The led light causes the drug to react with oxygen, which forms a chemical that kills the cells. Photo Dynamic Therapy may also help by destroying the blood vessels that feed the cancer cells and by alerting the immune system to attack the cancer.
Photo Dynamic Therapy usually requires two treatments, two weeks apart but no longer than 7 weeks, and patients are reviewed by the prescribing doctor 2-3 months after treatment for a follow up. Studies have shown that PDT be just as effective as surgery or radiation therapy in treating certain kinds of cancers and pre-cancers. PDT has no long-term side effects and is less invasive than surgery. PDT can be targeted precisely to concerned areas and can have further treatments in the same area multiple times and there is generally minimal to no scarring after the site heals.

The Perfect Peel is a revolutionary peel that will transform your skin into looking younger, healthier and clearer in just one week. This t Peel can be used on all skin types and requires no pre-peel skin preparation. The process takes less than 15 minutes and is virtually pain free.
5-ACID BLENDED PEEL WITH GLUTATHIONE, VITAMINS AND MINERALS WITH GLUTATHIONE
The Perfect Peel founds itself on a key anti-aging ingredient never before used in a peel: Glutathione. Glutathione is the ultimate antioxidant, penetrating deep into the cellular level of the skin to fight oxidant damage and is the anti-aging answer to premature wrinkling. Our bodies naturally produce glutathione but as we age, our levels deplete due to sun exposure, air pollutants, environmental stress and the aging process itself. Glutathione is also proven to reverse melanin’s metabolism, lightening dark pigmentations.
This Peel blends glutathione, kojic acid, TCA, retinoic acid, salicylic acid, phenol, and a blend of minerals and vitamins, including vitamin C. Kojic acid is a powerful lightening agent and proven to increase collagen and elastin production, resulting in skin that is brighter and tighter. TCA, phenol and retinoic acid reduce wrinkles and correct pigment problems, while salicylic acid exfoliates the skin and reduces inflammation. Alone the ingredients are powerful, but in combination they produce results that are astonishing.
Following your peel, you are given an individual home treatment pack. This pack contains retinol wipes and a vitamin C moisturizer to assist the peeling process and enhance your results.

Your skin will go into heling mode after your treatment, this means that potentially scabs will form over the treated area. Picking of the scab impairs wound healing and therefore heightens the risk of scarring and discolouration. Therefore any scabs should be left alone and allowed to heal.
If dressing is required, make sure its loose fitting and breathable.
Do not leave any dressing in the prolonged area (1-6 hrs ) the treated area needs to be allowed to dry and usage of dressings should be avoided if possible.
If water does come into contact of the skin, use a cotton ball to remove.
Do not swim, soak or expose to steam.
Contact with soap may cause the scab to break off, and not dry. Cover area when showering or bathing.
Avoid any heavy workouts, or excess sweating which can dampen the area and lead to infection.
If you see any signs of infection, use a cotton bud and clean the area by applying Antibiotic ointment near to the edge of the area being treated.
If unsure, consult a doctor.
If the treatment sight is below the waist, healing may take longer. Inital weeping may be greater due to high fluid pressure within the lower body.
Elevating the area whilst sleeping will help heal.
Once scabs are removed, the skin will look slightly red and irritated which will persist for the next 2-3months.
You will experience itching. ( Do not scratch ) Tapping the area will help.
If you have an allergic reaction, take an antihistamine.
No direct sunlight on the area once treated.
