Chemical Peels (You don't Have to Peel Like a Snake)

Since the TV programme 10 Years Younger has featured chemical peels as part of aging treatments, we have experienced an increased demand for chemical peels. Did you know that you do not necessarily need to have the "shredding effect" on your face and be off work for one to two weeks as shown on the television?

There are many types of chemical peels including TCA peels, Obagi, Unideep, Phenol and Agera Rx.

Most chemical peels result in what I call "skin shredding" as it gives the appearance of a snake shredding its skin, this is acceptable if you want to stay in for 1-2 weeks, but for a working woman it just doesn’t seem probably. Agera Rx peels cause no shredding and deliver the same fabulous results.

Agera RX peels are non-irritating and pain free with no need for recovery time. Now for the science bit! These are unique treatments that significantly stimulate the fibroblasts deep within the skin to produce new collagen and elastin. After just one session, the skin will look clearer, smoother and brighter.

Agera Rx chemical peels are a course of 6 sessions, spaced 2-3 weeks apart and they become as cost effective as major shredding peels that have been seen on the TV show 10 Years Younger.

For maximum results a course of AGERA® RX skin peels can be combined with microdermabrasion (a skin-freshening technique that helps repair facial skin).

I believe an Agera Rx Peel is a clear winner, by allowing you to have a peel in the morning and being able to go to a ball in the evening, an option any person would love to have. Agera RX skin peels are definitely something to consider.
