What is a metabolic peel???
Metabolic or Anabolic Peels are sophisticated and highly potent skin peeling preparations with chirally correct ingredients. They are designed to work with the skin to balance naturally occurring skin functions from within. Some are quite uncomfortable on application but others are very comfortable with little to no irritiation.
Metabolic Peels not only perform a surface skin sloughing effect, like regular peels, but depending on the active ingredients, over time, will balance oil flow, speed up scar tissue repair, balance over production of pigmentation and even turn back the clock on aging and sun damage.
As a facialist I prescribe these peels often as a monthly skin maintenance treatment or an initial balance restoring treatment course. No matter what combination of concerns your skin is experiencing we have a metabolic peel to address them all.
Due to the highly concentrated ingredients in Metabolic Peels you will need to prepare your skin for treatment with matching skincare so have a skin consultation prior to treatment so you can start on your preparation skincare at least 2 weeks before your peel. And after your peel you are likely to have some dry, post treatment flakey skin for up to 5 days, this is normal.
So now you may be asking, When would I have a Metabolic Peel? That would be when you have an annoying skin concern that home care just won’t assist.
Below are a list of metabolic peels for specific skin concerns:
Inflammed Acne – Cosmedix Benefit Peel & Skinstitut AHA Enzyme Peel.
Pimples, Minor Scarring & Congested Pores – Aspect Jungle Brew, Cosmedix Purity Peel & Skinstitut Peel Accelerator.
Pigmentation – Aspect Pigment Punch, Cosmedix Timeless Peel & Skinstitut Ageless Peel.
Wrinkles, Age Spots & Skin Tone – Aspect Cabernet Au Chocolat, Cosmedix Timeless Peel & Skinstitut Ageless Peel.
Sun Damage or Thickened Acne Scarring – Cosmedix Deep Sea Peel & Skinstitut Purple Peel.
Caution!!! I know that you can find some of these peeling preparations being sold online. There is a risk of these online peels being counterfeit or out of date stock. Please do not be tempted to buy them to perform yourself. They require a skilled practitioner to assess the reaction of the skin to the application. If over used or applied incorrectly you could cause significant damage.
