BIOSURFACE PEEL

 

Biosurface peel is a powerful skin resurfacing system from skin health experts Dermalogica. It’s recommended to use to help reduce

Revealing smoother, softer, brighter skin.

Why do I need it?  Chemical peels are one of the most popular professional skin care services today because they can improve the quality, texture and tone of the skin. But they can also produce severe side effects such as inflammation, discolouration and scarring for several months. With a Biosurface treatment from Nu Essence you can get the same powerful results without the associated risks or downtime. After a Biosurface treatment your skin will look and feel healthier then ever!

What can I expect?  You will experience noticeable results within three treatments, from fewer wrinkles and fine lines to smoother texture and reduced breakouts. Results will vary depending on your skin condition and how frequently you receive Biosurface treatment with us.

How does Biosurface peel work?  Biosurface is designed to work with your skins chemistry, not against it. When performed by one of our Expert skin therapists, it safely removes dull outer layers of skin and helps the skin underneath regenerate for better health and radiance.

The Treatment

How to get the most form your BioSurface Peel treament

Many clients will need some regular facials or Microzone facials prior to receiving a peel to ensure the skin can tolerate a high activity peel and minimize adverse effects such as hyperpigmentation. Not all clients will require priming, but some form of priming is ideal. Such as hydrating skin that is showing signs of dehydration or exfoliation to remove build up. If you Prime, you will recover faster than someone who does not have a good home care routine.

The better the health of the skin the less likely it will experience sensitisation or adverse reactions to a peel. Dehydrated or cracked skin allows for more penetration of chemical peeling agents causing stinging, burning or hot spots. 

How does the BioSurface Peel work?

Salicylic Acid, a potent beta hydroxy acid, helps dissolve & remove excess surface oils & skin cells. Powerful plant enzymes unlink skin cells & help digest skin protein to facilliate penetration of active ingredients.

Highly active skin smoothing acids penetrate the skin pushing exfoliation to the limit.

Skin Smoothing botanicals rapidly calm irritation and reduce redness while kick starting the reparative process.

Why is it applied in layers?

This will increase the depth of peeling as applying layers on top of one another will faciliate absorption of previous layers.

Where the Peel is applied?

The peel is applied to face. Since there are fewer sebaceous (oil) glands on the body it can take the body longer to recover from a chemical peel, therefore, the neck and chest are avoided on the first couple of treatments, until skin reaction is noted.

How often do I get a BioSurface Peel?

Aging/Pigmentation 1-2 weeks apart

Sensitive Skin 3-4 weeks apart

Acne/Congestion 1-2 weeks apart

Post Treatment Care

Client’s skin sensitivity, condition, concern, and recovery time will impact how frequently the treatment is preformed. Ideally a series of treatments are preformed over a 3-12 week period followed by maintaince treatments twice a year.

Immediately after your treatment your skin may appear red & flushed. As your skin goes through the renewal process. It is normal to experience dryness, redness, and tightness as well as some flaking within the week. Pigmentation may appear more pronounced as it rises to the skin’s surface. These side effects will subside quickly with proper post treatment care, starting with your BioSurface Peel After Care Kit. Ask Elaine, Dermalogica Skin Expert, for a skin care prescribtion to help ensure lasting results.

A Patch Test must be carried out prior to treatment, to evaluate skin response.

Every client MUST complete a consent form before EVERY peel treatment. Clients will also receive an aftercare sheet to take home after every peel.
