At Bobbie Charles we offer an extensive range of both Medik8 and Mesoestetic chemical peels to assist with a wide range of skin concerns from fine lines, acne, pigmentation and uneven skin tone. Whilst very effective, peels can also be harmful to the skin if not administered correctly.
Our highly skilled therapists will always regard your skin health as number one priority and will never risk it being compromised for the sake of fast tracking your results. You will always receive an in-depth skin consultation with one of our trained therapists at each appointment. During this consult we will work with you to determine the most suitable peel option and treatment plan moving forward.
What is a Skin Peel?
As we age our cell regeneration cycle slows down which can lead to a variety of skin concerns. A peel removes unwanted, damaged, or weakened cells in the layers of the epidermis and encourages living layers of the epidermis (in the basal layer) to produce new, fresh and healthy skin cells. Peels stimulate fibroblast cells within the dermal layer, resulting in increased collagen formulation revealing a refreshed, renewed complexion.
The acids in chemical peels break down the glue called desmosomes in the upper layer of epidermis (the junctions which hold together the skin cells), triggering exfoliation and resurfacing the complexion. Peels stimulate epidermal growth from the basal layer, which replaces damaged cells with more normalised tissues.
Although our chemical peels work on the epidermis, we are also disturbing the dermis to boost the production of more collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, to give a plumper and more youthful appearance.
We complete your peel treatment by applying a hydrating and calming sheet mask by Medik8, which ensures your skin has the best chance of a faster healing process and to minimise excessive peeling. This step is also crucial for minimising any risk of post dehydration and extra redness in the skin. We then get you set up to rest under our Healite II Medical LED light device for an extra healing and anti-aging component. The LED will help speed up any recovery caused by excessive flushing post treatment and will stimulate collagen and elastin, leaving a rejuvenated skin that still has its integrity.
