How can I freat the body with peels?
Peeling of the body uses the same protocol as facial peels. However only a small area on the body can be treated at one time. This means not applying a peel to any area larger than four hand palms - this is equal to the full face, neck, décolletage, upper or lower backs. We also do not recommend layering body peels, as we want to strive for the best results without increasing the chance of compromising your skin.
For sun-damaged areas like the hands, glycolic, mandelic and pyruvic acid help to trigger collagen production smoothing and plumping the skin texture. This can be great for the hands as they are prone to sun damage due to the thinness of the skin.
For the décolletage, lactic and glycolic acid can help minimise melanin production, fade pigmentation and prevent the formation of further pigmentation. This makes it perfect for areas with age spots or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Some people find they are extremely prone to blemishes on the back. Some peels use 40% lactic and 10% glycolic acid to help to unblock pores, minimise the formation of blemishes and promote a clearer complexion, perfect for congested and blemish prone skin types.
Sunscreen is exceptionally important post-peel as skin is more susceptible to UV radiation. Therefore, it is also essential for the body to help speed up the effects of peeling, and to allow you to reach your skin goals quicker.
