What is a Mesopeel treatment?
A mesopeel is a pharmaceutical grade chemical peel. A chemical peel is a dermo-cosmetic procedure that consists of provoking accelerated skin regeneration in a controlled manner through application of chemoexfoliation agents that are used to act on different layers of the skin.
The peeling action causes the elimination of the external layers of the skin with the objective of stimulating collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycan production, thus enhancing its physiological and mechanical characteristics.
- Purify and oxygenate the skin, leaving it moisturised and free of impurities.
- Close open pores, improve the texture of the skin and increase thickness of the epidermis.
- Address the effects of skin aging, softening wrinkles and adding turgidity
- Unify skin tone, add luminosity and smooth cutaneous imperfections.
- Lighten and attenuate pigmented lesions, providing a depigmenting effect.
- Reduce the manifestations of acne and improve the appearance of scars.
Rosacea and skin sensitivity concerns can also be addressed.
Chemical peels can be classified into four levels, depending on its depth of action, which in turn correlates with the nature and intensity of the lesions to treat;
-Highly Superficial (superficial stratum corneum) – Increases uniformity of skin tone for a more luminous appearance.
-Superficial (epidermal to basal layer) – Stimulates epidermal growth by removing the stratum corneum. This causes skin to flake in a similar way to that occurring after excessive exposure to the sun.
Highly Superficial and Superficial chemical peels are what Hollie’s Skincare uses. We merely want to renew cell turnover to improve skin appearance, soften fine lines, shatter pigmentation and sterilise acne lesions rather than cause skin ablation which is a medical practice.
-Medium (papillary dermis) – Medium peels affect the papillary dermis, causing significant flaking by inducing superficial dermal inflammation. It completely removes the epidermis, which then renews until fully regenerated - Medical Only.
-Deep (reticular dermis) – Deep chemoexfoliation leads to an inflammatory reaction of the reticular dermis, inducing collagen and elastin fibre reconstruction an full skin ablation- Advanced Medical I.e. Dermatologist.
Chemical peels reach distinctive depths depending of different factors such as skin typology (history, thickness, integrity of the epidermal barrier), type, concentration and PH level of the substance used and the skin preparation and application techniques used in performing the treatment.
Peel formulations are selected on the basis of the nature of the cases to treat, as well as clients’s individual characteristics, especially skin colour. Not all skins can be treated and some skins may need extra pre-peel prep and slower peel progression, all of which will be discussed at your initial consultation and patch test appointment. If one is suitable, a course programme will then be put into place.
Mesopeel ensures unbeatable, progressive results for both facial and body treatments. They offer a wide range of Alpha Hydroxy and Beta Hydroxy Acids (A/BHA) and combined acid peels ranging from practitioner up to medical level, each suiting different varieties of skin concerns. The number of sessions needed generally depends on the peel being used, skin type being treated and skin colour. The highly superficial, superficial and medium strength peels are generally able to be performed in sessions of six treatments, with two weeks between each treatment.
Homecare is an essential part of pre-peel prep and this will be discussed during the initial consultation. Skin preparation may need to happen 2-4 weeks before a peel course can commence, especially if a client is not using a medical grade homecare range already at home and when treating darker skin types. Using the correct, active products will reduce irritation, peeling and chances of having any adverse reactions. Incorrect homecare therefore post-peel care for the skin any mean a skin is too compromised to have a peel. A peel could act aggressively into the skin and lead to post-peel skin risks. As long after-care advice from Hollie’s Skincare is followed and the skin is prepared and healthy, a chemical peel is an extremely safe, risk-free treatment.
Regular maintenance peels will sustain the skin’s healthy appearance, improving texture and providing a preventative, anti-aging effect. Peel frequency is dependent on the type of peel being performed - a session can be repeated generally up to four times a year to maintain results. After a peel course is complete, you can return to maintaining skin health and results with Environ facials.
As well as being a highly efficient treatment for skin aging, acne and pigmented lesions, mesopeel is an ideal tool for optimising other medical aesthetic procedures such as; mesotherapy, microneedling, fillers and botulinum toxin, radiofrequency.
All clients must book a consultation and patch test appointment before any mesopeel course can commence. This ensures client suitability to treatment and the chance for Hollie’s Skincare to gauge a full understanding of one’s skincare habits, concerns and expectations so a true programme can then be discussed and mapped out.
