The Skin Peel Process with Agera RX Peels

When you think of a face peel (or chemical peel), images of shedding skin, redness and irritation immediately spring to mind. Fortunately Selston Cosmetic Clinic offer the Agera RX Medical “no down time” skin peel that involves no recovery time and ensures you leave the clinic without looking like something out of a horror movie; Selston Cosmetic Clinic specialises in non-invasive treatments such as the “no down-time peel” and microdermabrasion, a deep mechanical exfoliation of the skin using crystals.

The Agera RX skin peel is used for various reasons such as general skin rejuvenation, blemishes, sun damage or ageing skin. For the best results, we recommend a combination course of 6 skin peels and 6 microdermabrasion sessions.

After completing a medical history form you have a 15-minute consultation where the cosmetic consultant explains thoroughly to you about the procedure It is important for the client to know that the difference with this treatment is that it does not involve chemicals or harsh acids. Unlike other chemical skin peels where you’re housebound for weeks; with Agera RX peels at Selston Cosmetic Clinic many customers are able to undergo lunchtime surgery.

The Agera RX peel works from deep down underneath the skin as opposed to taking off the top layer of skin. It uses nanotechnology, which penetrates through the water lipid barrier into the deeper layer of the skin, the dermis. The treatment begins with the therapist massaging an ultra mild cleanser into the face to clean the skin of any makeup and excess oils. Strong smelling peel prep was then used to again clean the skin of any excess oils and prepare it for the treatment. There is little discomfort, or more commonly no discomfort at all, and in fact it feels more like a normal facial. Two layers of peel are normally applied to the face. Here there may be slight itchiness and a feeling of the skin being lightly heated.

The skin peel is left on the skin for about 10 minutes, during which time a fan is blown onto the face and cold, wet towels are pressed heavily into the skin to activate the peel. Once the peel has been fully absorbed by the skin, the therapist applies a vitamin C serum to neutralise the peel, a recovery cream and a high factor sun cream.

After the treatment, you are advised not to wear any makeup for the following 24 hours.
