Organic skin peels
Organic Series Glycolic – Mandelic Peel is a medium – depth peel, but with several advantages over medium-depth peels of the past. Unlike the traditional exfoliating peels, OS Peel uses a unique blend of safe but effective organic acids intended to cause natural chemical exfoliation of the stratum corneum and epidermis.
The peel contains antioxidants and skin lightening and brightening ingredients, in addition to the combination of exfoliative and reparative organic acids (organic compounds are naturally occurring molecules containing carbon, but may have other elements like hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen).
The synergistic effect of these ingredients is intended to create a comprehensive reparative and rejuvenating chemical peel that can be combined with other cosmeceutical products and treatments. This special formulation includes a unique, innovative blend of peeling agents, alpha-hydroxy acid (glycolic acid), beta-hydroxy acid (salicylic acid) & mandelic acid.
While results are predictable and noticeable after just one session, more results are seen after a series of peels. The number of treatments needed by a patient depends upon the problem being addressed, but usually ranges from minimum three to six treatments spaced one to three weeks apart.
Results are generally seen after just one treatment, but a series of treatments is required for optimum results. Other products and treatments can be used in conjunction with the peel, depending on the skin problems being treated.
Maintaining Peel Results
The changes that occur in the epidermis following a skin peel last for years. In order to maintain the results, it is critical to avoid sun damage. As with any treatment, it is always important to protect the skin from harmful UV rays after the peel, as this can aggravate and cause damage to the skin. It is recommended that peel recipients use an SPF 20 or higher, which we recommended our OrganicSeries Moisturising Cream with SPF 20. Patients should use adequate sun protection even on cloudy days.
The patients skin type, skin care before and after the peel, and the patients lifestyle after the procedure can also affect the results. Some types of skin problems respond better to skin peeling than others. People with lighter skin who limit their sun exposure after the procedure tend to have better results than those with darker skin and those who continue to spend time in the sun.
