The Micro VitA peel is a unique fusion of mechanical exfoliation and the natural renewing and rejuvenating properties of retinol (Vitamin A) for ALL skin types.
The peel occurs in a 2 phase system –
(AHA creams are to be applied 2 weeks before the commencement of your first peel to prepare the skin – provided by your practitioner.)
Phase 1) Microdermabrasion – the use of fine white aluminium crystals that gently and safely abrades the upper horney dead skin cell layer revealing new fresher skin cells – This phase prepares the skin for better absorption/penetration of active ingredients into the lower layers of the skin
Phase 2) Peel (*Retinol) – is applied in a light layer over the entire prepared area after the microdermabrsion. The retinol fluid is light, transparent and is yellowish in colour – not easily visible on the skin. It is essential that you wash your face after 8 hours with a cleanser recommended by your practitioner.
*Retinol is a natural form of Vitamin A. The Vitamin A increases skin cell turn over and exfoliation by stimulating skin cells and collagen production. This process therefore removes surface damage like: Hyperpigmenation – Environmental or Hormonal, Fine lines and wrinkles, open pores, uneven skin tone, treats acne and post acne scarring.
Directly after the treatment skin will be slightly red and resemble that of a mild sun burn. – No down time required
+/- 2 to 3 days later the skin will feel a bit tight due to the drying effects of the Micro VitA peel and will lightly start to flake.
There is a 2 week interval between each peel
A high Spf 30+ should be applied every day on the start day of the prepping period and through out the course of the peels.
No other products other than what is advised to you by your practitioner should be used during the course of your peels.
