We wanted a peel that gave better and quicker results than glycolic peels: We found (even) medical grade glycolic peels involved too many treatments and were not really cost-effective. Then we found Apothepeel
Apothepeel : A Light Chemical Peel (Superfi cial Dermis) that delivers fabulous results: ApothéPeel is considered a light peel yet is deeper than a glycolic acid 50% or even 70% peel. The glycolic peels can sometimes be lackluster in their effect. ApothéPeel is almost painless yielding a great peel at 4 - 5 days.
For Acne and sun damage the Apothepeel can be repeated at two weekly intervals. You will notice results very quickly. For most people though it is very effective used four-weekly.
Apothepeel is a unique blend of TCA, Salicylic Acid, Phenol,Retinoic Acid, vitamins and microelements which we obtain from a compounding pharmacy in the United States.
Maintenance Peels: For average skin in reasonable condition but maybe just looking a bit tired then just one peel carried out every three months or so is usually more than enough to keep skin looking glowing and healthy.
This peel can be used on the arms, hands, neck and chest
Peeling: Shedding of damaged skin begins in 2 days and gentle peeling continues until day 5. You can use makeup but need to be sparing on the moisturizer so as to encourage the peeling process.
Timing Suggestions for your Peel Patients begin to shed damaged skin in 2 days and continue gently peeling until day 5. It is a good strategy to do the peel on a Wednesday evening or Thursday morning. Generally it is fine to go to work on Thursday or Friday then the peeling starts after about two days ( Friday or Saturday), maybe take Monday off and return to work Tuesday. The result is a more youthful and fresh appearance.
