Skin Preparation

Skin Care Preparation

Skin preparation products boost the skin’s health, which is advantageous before any aesthetic treatment.

Appropriate skin preparation will:

  • Improve the quality of your skin.
  • Reduce your skin’s sensitivity.
  • Prolong your results.
  • Prevent new damage
  • Ensure chemical peels penetrate evenly.

However, preparation is essential before the application of deeper chemical peels. By using the correct preparation products in your homecare regime, your skin will be acclimatised to the active ingredients and conditioned for the stronger in-clinic treatment, and it will reduce the risk of postinflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Prepare to improve the appearance of your skin.

We are unable to perform our scar peel, or our photo-damage/melasma peel if you have not used an appropriate home care regime in the 2 weeks leading up to your peel. Therefore these peels are only available to clients who have prepared their skin appropriately.

Fortunately, we offer a fantastic collection of skin care products specifically for the preparation of your skin.

Preparation essentials

Deep Cleansing Gel

This cleanser contains an exclusive combination of high-performance active ingredients such as salicylic, glycolic, hyaluronic and lactic acid, retinols, and vitamin C.

The blend of acids work in synergy to increase cell turnover, slough away dead cells, strengthen the barrier function of the skin, and hydrate from the inside out, for a brighter, dewier and more youthful complexion.

Additionally it contains a tyrosinase inhibitor to reduce melanin production; an essential in avoiding postinflammatory hyperpigmentation complications.

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant and skin-soothing agent that can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also speeds up wound healing, has anti-inflammatory properties and offers protection against UV damage.

Finally Vitamin A, also known as retinol, is an ingredient that promotes skin renewal and enhances collagen production (which starts to decline in your 30s), leading to a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also reverse some of the side effects of sun damage.

Pro Retinal

A daily serum which improves the appearance of acne, fine lines and pigmentation. It increases cell renewal whilst also improving tone and texture, skin firmness, elasticity and plumpness. This serum is clinically proven to work 11 times faster than retinol, is also a powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory effects and wound healing properties. Highly recommended for improving general skin health, and treating scarring, rosacea, acne, eczema, dermatitis, hyperpigmentation, and sun-damaged skin.

Vitamin C30 Serum

This serum can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, with anti-inflammatory properties to sooth your skin. It also contains potent antioxidant properties, which aid the skin’s natural regeneration process, repairing damaged skin cells.

Vitamin C30 Serum will also suppress the production of melanin which is essential for avoiding postinflammatory hyperpigmentation responses.

Hydrate Pro

A daily luxurious moisturising cream that has been formulated with soluble collagen that acts as a filler to make skin firmer and increase microcirculation, and sodium hyaluronate which hydrates down to the deeper layers of the skin, due to its small molecular size. Sodium Hyaluronate and soluble collagen work in synergy to hydrate and rejuvenate at the cellular level.

Preparation essentials Collection

The daily essential collection contains everything you need to prepare your skin for aesthetic treatments.

Deep Cleansing Gel, Vitamin C30 Serum, Pro Retinal and Hydrate Pro are available in a smaller size as part of our Daily Essentials Collection for £60!

Happy with your current regime?

If you already use a home care regime that suits your skin we are able to offer you advice at a free consultation to ensure your products are preparing your skin appropriatly.

We would generally advise an antioxidant-containing cleanser, Vitamin A and C, and a product containing alpha-hydroxy acid.

If your skin is at a high risk of hyperpigmentation then it is essential to use a product to suppress melanocyte pigment production to avoid the risk of hyperpigmentation in response to treatment.
