Chemical Peels

Chemical Peeling

Our skin goes through a lot, from sun damage, to natural ageing, to factors that stem from diet (such as a lack of adequate vitamins and minerals) and lifestyle (for instance, smoking). In turn, this can cause our complexions to look dull, dry and tired, and aged- whether from pigmentation problems or from lines and wrinkles.

Chemical peels are the ideal way to ‘turn back the clock’, sweeping away layers of dead skin cells to reveal the newer, younger skin below -and prompt your skin to produce new skin cells, too. The result is an instant refresh for your face.

At Be U Studio, we believe in the best, which is why we use brands such as Mesoestetic Peels, Cosmelan, Biorepeel and Environ. With benefits including improving fine lines and wrinkles, refining skin texture, treating aches to balancing pigmentation.

Mesoestetics Peels are the most advanced range of superficial to deep chemical peels designed for skin rejuvenation. We use a range of Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids at different concentrations and combined formulas aimed at specific skin indications.

How it works? 

The peeling action causes the elimination of the external layers of the skin, acting on different depths of the skin, stimulating collagen and refining the skin. Following a full assessment of the condition, type and requirements of your skin.

What to expect?

It is a procedure designed to provoke accelerated skin regeneration in a controlled manner through the application of chemexfoliation agents (peels).The peeling action causes the elimination of the external layers of the skin, while acting on different depths of the skin to stimulate collagen production helping with scarring, textural and ageing concerns.

What results will I see?

Whether your concern is active acne, breakouts or scarring, or whether you are just looking to feel fresher and brighter, even younger, your skin will be smoothed, refined, less congested with less wrinkles.

Is there any downtime?

Soon after a peel, the skin can appear quite pink and in most cases the skin may feel sensitive although these effects might be less noticeable with each repeated treatment. The skin can experience peeling or flaking a couple of days after the treatment. The therapist always finishes the treatment with an SPF and strict home-care advice.

How many treatments will I need?

Usually a course of six treatments is recommended at 3-4 week intervals for optimum results. But this can be discussed and reviewed throughout your treatments.

Environ’s Cool Peel Technology works to support the natural processes of healthy skin. This ultimately helps refine, revive, smooth and rejuvenate skin without compromising its natural functions.

Environ Cool Peel Technology is a fully customisable system that a trained skincare professional can control throughout the treatment. Peels can be very mild and gentle for first time users.

Environ’s peeling formulations are of low percentage and low pH. This results in an effective peeling treatment that is very gentle on the skin. It preserves as much of the epidermis as possible. Scientifically formulated, this technology feels cool and comfortable when applied to the skin.

BioRePeel is an extremely easy, effective and pain-free TCA (trichloroacetic acid) peel. It is an innovative, biphasic, patented medical device with a biostimulating, revitalising and peeling action.

Thanks to its exfoliating and keratolytic action, it promotes cell turnover by removing the outer corneal layer cells with selective action on corneocytes’ junction bonds.

The active ingredients’ dermofunctionality contributes to a profound stimulation of skin replication and biosynthetic processes, essential to counter the effects of skin ageing and oxidative damage induced by UV radiation and pollution.

BioRePeel can be used for the treatment of:

  • Prevention of skin aging
  • Prevention of fine wrinkles
  • Wrinkle treatment
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Skin texture improvement
  • Skin colour improvement
  • Acne
  • Post acne injuries
  • Large pores and blackheads.

BioRePeel is broken down into 4 Functional Complexes.
BIO (Bio stimulation),
RE (Revitalisation),
PEEL (Peel) and
LIPO (Lipo Complex)

BIO: (Bio stimulation) this stimulates the fibroblasts activity and activates cutaneous proliferation. It achieves this by using the amino acids: glycine, proline, hydroxyproline and vitamin C.

RE (Revitalisation) creates an anti-wrinkling effect and encourages the skin to look fresher, glowy and healthy. This effect is caused by the ingredients: GABA Arginine, Vitamin B2

PEEL removes the outer cells of the stratum corneum by melting the corneocytes adhesion bonds, revealing fresher, healthier and less congested skin.

LIPO Complex moisturises the skin so when the peel is removed it gives the skin a velvet texture.

Who is suitable for this treatment?

BioRePeel can safely be used on all Fitzpatrick skin types, unlike peels of old which previously could not be used on Fitzpatrick skin types five and six.

Which area can be treated?

It can safely be used on the whole body, including armpits and areas with shaving shadow. This peel can be used all year round, including the summer months.

Is it painful?

Clients may feel a slight tingling sensation but most report that they do not feel anything.
