Chemical Peels

What is an Alumier Skin Peel?

An Alumier chemical skin peel is when a chemical solution is applied to the skin, usually on the face, to remove the top layer of skin, reaching the deeper layer. Not only does this get rid of old skin cells but the skin that does then rejuvenate through this exfoliation and refinement, is smoother, brighter and younger-looking. What are Skin Peels Used for? Skin peels are used to rejuvenate and resurface the skin and stimulate healthy regrowth, also

Are there different types of Skin peels? As the solution contains chemicals, treatments come into different depths from light to deep.   A light depth peel, or superficial skin peel, is the lowest level of treatment and removes the epidermis – the outer layer of the skin. This type of treatment is best-suited to fine lines and wrinkles, dryness, uneven skin toneand small areas of acne. A medium depth chemical peel removes skin cells from the epidermis and the dermis – the middle layer of your skin. This type of peel can be used to treat the same concerns as a light chemical peel but is also effective at minimising acne scarring. Finally, a deep skin peel removes the most amount of skin cells and is used for deep wrinkles, aged scarring and even pigmentation. How does it work? Skin peels are a non-invasive way to rejuvenate the skin. We typically use a soft brush to apply the chemical solution, which is made up of glycolic or salicylic acid. This gentle and unique blend of acids provides an effective peel to improve the look and feel of your skin. It also helps to gently exfoliate the skin’s top damaged layers, leaving your complexion fresh, renewed and radiant.
