Facial peels

24/03/2016 at 09:48:48 | by Dr Alison Duncan
The VI peel and VI peel acne represent the next generation of chemical exfoliant unlike any others you may have experienced. It is comfortable to have applied, which is a huge improvement on the acute severe burning you experience with 20-30% TCA peels. It is convenient, with peeling occurring through the 3rd to 6th days after treatment. You go home with a lovely after care pack, too.
 
VI peel, contains five acids, and TCA is one of them. It also has phenolic acid, the strongest acid peel currently used in aesthetics, retinoic acid, salicylic acid, and ascorbic acid. With all of those ingredients and the comfort afforded by the phenol, it is the best peel I use. It gives the results of a good deep peel, not that from shop bought or beauty salon glycolic acid peels.
 
It it is indicated for anti-aging, acne,  Hyperpigmentation, melasma, sunspots, mild acne scars, dull lifeless skin, it improves tone and texture and is suitable for sensitive skin types. Fine lines and wrinkles improve, with the skin appearing smoother. Up to 71% of patients report such. The collagen content of the skin is increased which gives a suppleness to the skin.
 
The radical thing about VI Peel and s that it can be safely used over the eyelids! We all have fine lines and wrinkles around our eyes that we want to improve. The peel can also be used on neck, décolleté, hands.
 
i've has the VI peel twice and can vouch for it's effectiveness and comfort. There is no way I would go back to pure TCA which is barbaric, less are, and cannot be used around the eyes out over the eyelids. It is safe to apply over the neck and décolleté which are prone to "catching" with TCA . Would highly recommend this peel even for the scariest of patients!

ARE THERE DAILY SUPPLEMENTS THAT I REALLY NEED FOR HEALTHY HAIR, SKIN AND NAILS?
 
  
Our bodies don't produce essential fatty acids, of which omega-3 is the most important. The first symptons of low omega-3 levels are brittle nails, lifeless, slow-growing hair and dull, scaly skin. Omega-3 keeps skin pumped up, soft and supple, and helps to strengthen nails and hair. Supplement your daily dose - which you get by eating oily fish and nuts - with Environ Nutrition Supplements. Omega 3, Basic Antioxidants with vitamin C and E, Vitamin A & D and the Hair, Skin & Nail supplements are also good for keeping skin, hair and nails healthy.

HOW MUCH SUN BLOCK IS ENOUGH?
 
Most of us don't apply enough sunscreen and ruin the risk of harming our skin. To obtain proper protection you need to use about a shot glass of sun block for your body and a tablespoon for your face. It sounds like a lot - but much of it gets wasted away or rubbed off. Be on the safe side and rather apply too much than risk turning lobster-red. Reapply sun block every two hours - the sun breaks down the protective ingredients in it, so they need to be topped up. It's also essential to reapply after swimming, playing sport or any time you sweat a lot. Remember - 'waterproof' is an overstatement because all suncreams become diluted by water to some extent, decreasing their protective qualities.

I USE SUN BLOCK IN SUMMER. DO I NEED IT THROUGHOUT THE YEAR?
 
Never underestimate the importance of protecting skin daily against harmful UV rays. Environ believes that, by boosting the antioxidants and natural sunscreens such as vitamins A, C and E in your skin with Environ Nutrition Supplements and Ionzyme C-Quence skincare products, you can adequately protect skin in winter during daily activities.
 
In winter we are exposed to UVA rays. You might not get a sunburn but UVA rays cause damage by generating dangerous free radicals. Natural antioxidant vitamins will help protect skin from UVA rays. Be sun-wise: wear hats and sunglasses whenever you can during outdoor activities. If you have pigmentation problems, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen throughout the year.

ARE FACIALS JUST FOR PROBLEM SKINS - OR A NICE INDULGENCE?
 
Facials are a soothing, pampering way of maintaining glowing, healthy skin at every age, and are very much part of an ideal beauty routine. A combination of viatmins and antioxidants will help hydrate, smooth and even out your complexion, as well as boost its radiance. Sensitive skin and problem skin will also benefit from the generous infusion of vitamins A, C and E and skin-saving antioxidants. Environ offers unique facials, suitable for any skin issues. Facials can be tailored to suit your skin's needs, so treat yourself as often as you can.
