Medik8 facials use combinations of high-quality acids, antioxidants and vitamins important for the skin. In our selection, you can find chemical peelings implemented with combined acid treatments. In addition, our selection includes a mild acid treatment for the eye area. All our facials start with a skin analysis, which maps your skin’s condition and needs. With the help of a skin analysis, the skin therapist plans the best acid treatment for your skin and your goals.
Chemical peeling for face
What is chemical peeling / acid treatment based on?
Chemical peeling treatment for the face is suitable for various needs and skin problems. Chemical peeling is based on exfoliating the skin with chemical substances without the mechanical stimulation caused by granular exfoliation.
When skin cells are activated with chemical acid treatment, the skin begins to produce more collagen and elastin, which are important for the skin. Chemical peels effectively brighten the skin’s color, cleanse the skin of impurities, and renew the skin’s surface, making it smoother and more even.
Our selection includes combination peelings containing different acids: Clarity, Rewind, Even, Universal, Sensitive & Eye Revel. Combined acids work well for the simultaneous treatment of different treatment needs or when the wishes are for a general brightening of the appearance.
Compound acids also contain active ingredients that specifically treat certain skin problems. Clarity: for oily & impure skin, Rewind: for aging skin, Even: for pigmented, uneven & sun-damaged skin, Universal: a balancing acid treatment suitable for all skin types, Sensitive: for sensitive & redness-prone skin and Eye Revel: for the eye area.
First chemical peel
Before the first Medik8 chemical peel, we recommend making an appointment for a special facial treatment consultation, where a skin care professional maps your skin’s needs, condition and performs a skin test. In this way, we can tailor a facial treatment that is just right for you and choose a chemical peel that suits your skin. Especially those with sensitive skin (and easily reactive skin) should have a consultation before the actual treatment. An appointment for a special facial treatment consultation should be booked at least 48 hours before the treatment. The consultation of the special facial treatment is free of charge.
Medik8 acid treatment, i.e. chemical peeling treatment, includes:
- skin analysis
- initial cleaning
- chemical peeling
- neutralization of chemical peeling
- skin soothing mask
- care products to be applied at the end of the treatment and sunscreen on the face
Skin problems that can be treated with acid peelings
Medik8 offers several different chemical acid treatments for different needs and skin problems. Chemical peeling is a good option when you want a more effective facial treatment or you want to treat one of the following skin problems:
- dry skin
- dull skin
- enlarged skin pores
- skin impurities
- acne scars
- superficial lines of the skin
Please also note that acid treatment cannot necessarily be combined with other facial treatments at the same time. For example, sugaring of the facial area cannot be done together with acid treatment.
Treatment of skin problems with acid peelings
The skin is a large living part of your body that protects you from environmental harm and extreme temperatures. The skin heals wounds, abrasions, bruises and removes toxins from your body. The skin is constantly renewed. Healthy skin protects the body by keeping harmful substances out and good ones inside. The face is bare and exposed to climate changes, environmental irritations and ultraviolet radiation. Remember to take care of your skin!
Cleansing facials and chemical peels can enhance and speed up the treatment process. Facial treatments that cleanse the skin effectively are suitable for non-inflammatory acne skin. Heat, steaming and massage are also suitable and can benefit non-inflammatory acne. In severe, inflamed acne skin, the skin should not be stimulated or squeezed, because it can only worsen the situation or cause various complications, such as the spread of bacteria, hyperpigmentation or skin scarring. Different types of chemical peels, which stimulate cell renewal and exfoliate dead skin cells, benefit both forms of acne. New treatment products and devices are also constantly being developed for the treatment of acne.
Treatments for aging skin
Salon treatments, especially serial treatments, can effectively treat the signs of aging. The best combination is effective salon treatments, high-quality home care products and a regular skin care routine. Nowadays, there is a wide range of treatments of different degrees for skin aging changes. Good results can be obtained with chemical peels and acid treatments, especially for skin discoloration. Microneedling of the skin activates the skin’s collagen production and evens out the skin’s texture. Effective Dermapen microneedling is a safe and popular treatment method for aging skin.
Treatments for dry skin
In the beauty salon, dry skin can be effectively treated with moisturizing facial treatments. Often, the products that are used by professionals may be more effective, and with their help, the moisture content of the skin can be restored more quickly. With effective peelings performed in the beauty salon, the dry and scaly surface layer of the skin can be peeled off, allowing the skin to receive the moisturizing ingredients better. The cosmetologist can also use various devices, such as ultrasound, HydraFacial or microneedling to make the moisturizing agents better absorbed into the skin, resulting in a more effective moisturizing effect.
