Cosmedix Benefit Peel
This peel will help to improve the look of pigmentation, reduce redness, brighten the complexion & have anti-ageing effect on the skin by stimulating new collagen and elastin. An ideal choice if you suffer from rosacea, pigment or you want to reduce or delay the signs of ageing.
Preparing for your Peel
You may need to prep you skin for up to two weeks with home-care products depending on the peel chosen to suit your individual skin type and skin condition. You may also be advised to stop using some skin-care products before or after your treatment. This is to ensure the best treatment results.
During a peel the skin may feel warm or you may experience an itchy or tingling sensation while products are on your skin.
A broad spectrum suncream will be applied and a mineral foundation if required.
Downtime (Time for the Skin to Recover)
The average healing time may vary with the intensity of the peels and your skin type. With most of the peels your skin may experience mild irritation of the skin, tightness, redness (similar to sunburn), flaking or mild shredding of the skin for about 3-7 days after the treatment. This is a normal side effect as the products take time to penetrate and push dead skin cells to the surface so new cells can regenerate.
