We are exposed daily to UV rays, free radicals, pollution and smoke in our environment and these contribute to skin pigmentation, premature skin aging and skin damage. The skin starts to lose its glow and may appear tired with uneven skin tone and colouration. Pigmentation has a tendency to increase with age, leaving the skin blemished.
Who benefits from this program?
Anyone who wants a whiter skin or who is troubled by pigment spots can benefit from this treatment for whiter and clearer skin.
What improvement can I expect in my appearance?
Discoloration or undesired pigmentation of the skin such as age spots, liver spots and freckles will be greatly reduced or eliminated. Skin will become whiter, clearer and smoother with a refreshed even skin tone and appearance. You will regain the youthful glow of a flawless complexion.
Which part of my body needs skin lightening?
Skin Whitening can be applied to any part of the body that has been over-exposed to the sun. The face, hands and upper chest, in particular, are prone to sun damage and aging. Brown or tan skin will benefit from this treatment, improving skin tone and clarity.
How soon can I expect to see the results?
Generally, a series of ten skin peels are administered which are augmented by take-home products containing the same whitening agent. Initial results can be expected after about five treatments with continuous improvement over some months.
What is the treatment?
Treatment consists of skin lightening Fruit Acid (AHA) Peels which contain hydroquinone. Eight to twelve light peels are done over a period of three months, combined with topical AHA skin products to enhance the effectiveness of our skin lightening program. Faster results can also be achieved when the treatment is combined with a vitamin ‘A’ Retinoic acid-based cream.
What are the side-effects?
You will be given a skin test before treatment to ensure that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients used.
Your skin may be red for a few days after a peel. This is a normal reaction. Be aware that because your skin is lighter, it will be more sensitive to sunburn so a sunblock should be applied before venturing outdoors.
