Skin Peels

The chemical peel process regenerates and resurfaces damaged cells to stimulate cell renewal, refine, rejuvenate and provide hydration. The treatment is finely tuned and tailored to your individual needs; the clear result being smoother, more even and more supple skin.

At Wodonga Skin Centre our range of proven advanced skin peels can be applied in a range of intensities to suit your treatment, as recommended by your experienced skin therapist. We take into account your skin’s sensitivity, condition and any specific concerns before customising a
precise chemical solution for your skin. We also take time to explain the process and any downtime, keeping you fully informed and in control.

To guarantee you get the results you are looking for and optimise skin health, prior to any skin peel one of our therapists will assess your skin and recommend pre- and post-treatment skincare products. Using the correct products specifically chosen for your skin and treatment
can significantly enhance your results and ensure you’re delighted with your revitalised look.

Frequently asked questions

A clinical peel will take less than 20 minutes to perform. Your Dermal Clinician will cleanse the area to be treated, and then prepare the skin for the peel by applying a solution to clean away any oil on the skin. Removing excess oil ensures an even and deep penetration of the peel itself. Your Dermal Clinician will then apply the correct peel to meet your skin’s requirements, and leave the peel on the skin for the appropriate amount of time. Serums will be applied to the skin after the peel has been removed, to sooth any heat or redness from the skin. Finally a sunscreen will be applied to protect the skin from UV damage when you leave the clinic.

Your Dermal Clinician will talk to you throughout the  treatment, and ask you to give verbal feedback to manage your comfort levels. Most clients will feel tingling, warmth or prickling from the peels – so peels may feel different to others.

Immediately after the treatment your skin may appear flushed and feel warm. This may last a few hours. In the days following a superficial peel (Pomegranate, Blueberry, Lactic) treatment your skin will look hydrated, fresh and glowing. In the days following a medium depth peel (Cab choc, Pigment punch, Purity, Benefit, Timeless) treatment you may experience some skin flaking or dryness, before the skin settles to look fresh and clear. With either superficial or medium depth peels, it is normal to experience breakouts post peel, because of the resurfacing nature of this treatment.

Depending on the type of peel, your treatments might be performed 2-6 weeks apart. At Wodonga Skin Centre we always recommend you have a course of peel treatments to achieve best results.

Before your treatment a Dermal Clinician will check the health of your skin. If your skin function is impaired, you will not be able to have a peel treatment on the day. An at home skin care routine that includes cosmeceutical products, will help to strengthen the health of the skin – to ensure maximum results from your peels and minimise downtime.

Sun exposure or solarium for 2-4 weeks prior Waxing, electrolysis or depilatory creams in the treatment area for 2 weeks prior Injectable treatments 2-4 weeks prior Other skin treatments for 2-4 weeks prior People who are prone to cold sores MUST take antiviral medication 2-3 days prior to treatment

Skin preparation is one of the most important concepts of chemical peeling as it pre-conditions the skin and improves the outcome of the peel by:

  • Increasing the speed of re-epithelialization (epidermal healing) of the skin post peel
  • Encourages a uniform penetration of the peeling agent. If there are areas of thickened dead skin cells the peel is less likely to penetrate evenly
  • Decreases the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH)
  • Introduces clients to a maintenance regime. Clients will develop a good skin care routine and practice good sun protection, which assists in maintaining their results post peel.

Peels that require skin care prepping/consultation:

  • Carbonate au Chocolat
  • Pigment Punch
  • Jungle Brew
  • Purity
  • Benefit
  • Timeless
  • Deep Sea Peel
  • Women during pregnancy or breastfeeding can only have the following peel treatments (Pomegranate Peel, Blueberry Peel and Aspect 20% Lactobotanical Peel)
  • People who are prone to cold sores MUST take antiviral medication 2-3 days prior to treatment
  • People that have had recent sun or solarium exposure
  • People that have recently had other treatments to the area (such as injectables, microdermabrasion, laser, waxing, electrolysis and depilatory cream)
  • People on certain medications (such as Roaccutane)
  • People with impaired skin barrier function

 

Generally, the deeper the peel the more risk for complications. Superficial and medium depth peels are safe and effective treatments with very little downtime.

Risks include:

  • Epidermolysis – visual separation of the epidermis from the dermis
  • PIHP (Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation) in darker skin types – darker patches appearing on the skin post peel. It can take weeks to years for the skin to return to normal colour
  • Prolonged erythema (redness), scarring, dermal wound, delayed wound healing and possible infection (if the skin is not cared for correctly)

These risks can be avoided by strictly adhering pre and post peel advice given. It is also highly important that you chose to have your peel treatments with highly  qualified and experienced Dermal Clinicians. At Wodonga Skin Centre, our team of fully qualified Dermal Clinicians offer an expert level of care to all clients.

Depending on the skin condition being treated, you will require 3 to 12 treatments, every 2 to 6 weeks apart. Treatments can continue providing the skin is not showing signs of irritation beyond the healing stage.
