CosMedix chemical peels treat and resolve all common skin problems in all skin types. All skincare products and peel treatments contain purified active ingredients using a process called Chiral correction. This process was developed by Sharlpless and Katsuki in 2000 and won them a Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2001.
CosMedix spends ten times more on skincare ingredients than any other skincare company. The purified active ingredients packed inside of the peels and skincare work four times faster than non-chiral ingredients. After one treatment skin feels smoother and there is an instant improvement in skin health and appearance. For these reasons CosMedix is the number one chemical peel company in plastic surgeons’ offices in Australia and America.
CosMedix allows the patient the ultimate skin fix. CosMedix chemical peels change the skin from the inside out. The active ingredients inside of CosMedix peels target specific skin cell receptors. The peels contain a mixture of powerful antioxidants, L-Ascorbic Acid and L-Retinol, the only FDA mandated skin resurfacer. Unlike traditional chemical peels the active ingredients and acids in CosMedix peels are specially formulated (purified) so that they are non-wounding and non-irritating. They offer enhanced inter-cellular communication and act to push damaged skin cells from the inside out rather than removing the top layers of the skin’s surface. CosMedix is currently the most superior and premier medical skincare available to beauty therapists, nurses and doctors in the world.
CosMedix skin philosophy
The CosMedix philosophy is based around the principal that inflammation is the core cause of all skin conditions.
Traditional skin care lines have primarily selected ingredients that create inflammation when addressing these common skin problems (artificial colours and fragrances, artificial preservatives, sodium lauryl sulphate, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, etc).
In addition, CosMedix peels and home care product contain a high concentration of active ingredients that communicate with the skin and work with its natural ability to repair itself.
What is chirality and why is it important in skincare?
Chirality is the description of the “spin” that every living molecule/cell—or in this case active peel ingredient– has naturally.
Through scientific study, it was found that the left orientation of many active ingredients in common chemical peels was most able to efficiently attach to skins millions of cell receptors. Ingredients in most product lines are 50/50 left and right spin and can therefore be more irritating for sensitive skins. CosMedix peels are available on both superficial and medium depth. Chirally corrected acids enable the practitioner to work on medium depth peels with a more cosmetically acceptable, layered exfoliation.
How do CosMedix peels work?
CosMedix innovative and non-traumatic peels have made it plausible for skincare professional to do chemical peels-on-demand.
The skin health restoration strategy begins with stimulating change in the skin instead of over irritating healthy skin to make change happen. Preparing the skin using the CosMedix range of Chirally Correct Skincare is always of value because of the increased fibroblast and keratinocyte activity but there are often scenarios where patients need/want to peel without preparation.
Chirally correct peels allow practitioners to do peels-on-demand but for best results CosMedix recommends that all medium depth peels have at least two weeks of skincare preparation.
How long will a peel take?
Typically peels take about 15-30 minutes, although medium depth peels like the Timeless and L-TCA take about 45 min.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required for you will depend on:
• The initial skin condition you would like to address, whether it is to correct a skin problem or for general skin health restoration.
• The type and strength of peel that most suits your requirements, ie. if you want minimal skin peeling you may require more frequent lower strength peels, or if you are prepared for some skin peeling then fewer higher strength peels may be the way for you.
• Your response and results to the initial treatment will determine how your treatment programme progresses.
How long will the results last?
The effects of a CosMedix peel are far superior to any ordinary facial and much longer lasting. Conditions such as sun damage and some types of hyperpigmentation can have permanent or very long term results, providing the cause of the problem is removed. Results with other types of hyperpigmentation such as hormonal melasma
and active acne can be maintained using the appropriate homecare products. After your initial series of peels and accompanying homecare process, the results can be maintained either every four to eight weeks with a lower strength peel or every three to six months with the higher strength peels.
What does it fee like?
Stinging, burning or itching sensations maybe experienced. This is normal and in fact desirable for efficacy of the treatment. You will be asked by your cosmetic treatment practitioner to describe the sensations you feel on the skin so that the skin reaction can be monitored. If a lower strength peel is applied the sensations are likely to be mild. If a higher strength peel is applied, greater sensation may be experienced.
After several minutes the peel solution will either self neutralise, or will be neutralised using either water or a sodium bicarbonate solution. This will feel cold. All or most of the sensations caused by the peel will be stopped when neutralisation occurs.
How will I look after a peel?
Superficial peels work on the top layer of dead skin cells. These peels usually leave you with a refreshed glow. Peels for acne or skin damage may be a little more exfoliating leaving the skin a bit flushed, looking like mild sunburn. The following few days after a superficial peel some exfoliation might be experienced, though you will be able to carry on with daily life as normal.
