Cosmedix Contour Peel
Treatment Type: Peel with Micro-needling Duration: 2 Hours Downtime : 5-10 Days Price: £245
The Contour Peel is the Cosmedix Benefit Peel along with dermal roller Micro-needling. It provides a controlled inflammatory effect that facilitates the removal of damaged tissue while promoting the production of the correct type of new collagen and elastin fibres. The post-treatment expectations for the Contour Peel result in either very mild, or visible “peeling” on the third of fourth day, followed by visibly brighter, more vibrant skin. As the treatment enhances the production of collagen and elastin, the Contour Peel also results in healthier, firmer, smoother looking skin.
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 5-10 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.
Home-care products will need to be used for up to 7 days with all of the peels to help with the skins healing and to ensure other products don’t irritate the skin. Applying a sun protection factor is absolutely essential to protect the skin. We will give you a home-care leaflet & a complimentary home-care kit to ensure you follow the correct advice.
Avoid heat treatments, sun exposure & sunbeds. Don’t mix the home-care kit with other products for 7 days after the peel. Don’t pick at the skin if you do experience any shedding.
