Resurfacers, sometimes referred to as mild peels, are superficial exfoliating treatments, meaning that they work on the very top layer of the skin and use enzymes and acids to refine and exfoliate. Resurfacers generally have little-to-no downtime following treatment. By comparison, chemical peels will also exfoliate and address a wide variety of concerns, yet they have the ability to penetrate the mid to lower levers of the epidermis, delivering stronger, extended results. Because chemical peels are so active and deeply penetrating, downtime of up to 10 days can be expected.
Sandalwoods offers an extensive range of DermaQuest & Alumier MD chemical peels and resurfacers that can be customised to most effectively address your specific area of concern. To find the perfect skin peel or resurfacer for you we always conduct a thorough consultation, analysis and patch test to select the solution to suit your skin type, needs and lifestyle. As part of this consultation process, you will also be advised of any preparation that may be necessary to condition your skin ahead of your peel or resurfacer treatment.
Each of the chemical peel and resurfacer treatments offers a specific and slightly different range of benefits, which will be discussed thoroughly at consultation.
(Dry, Normal, Oily, Dehydrated, Acne, Hyper-pigmentation & Ageing)
Glow Peel combines lactic acid, salicylic acid and resorcinol, creating a multipurpose resurfacing solution effective in minimising the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation issues like age spots, discolouration and uneven skin tone. This formula exfoliates dead skin cells and stimulates cell renewal. To suit individual needs, Glow Peel can be customised by strength by numbers of layers.
(Acne, hyper-pigmentation & Ageing)
Vitamin A boost is a potent and pure retinol and lactic acid resurfacing treatment. It reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation by boosting collagen production and speeding cell turnover, creating a more radiant and even-toned complexion. Ideal for mature or sun damaged skin.
Detox Clear contains salicylic acid and lactic acid for excellent pore penetration and exfoliation. Salicylic acid penetrates into the pore and exfoliates dead skin cells and excess sebum. Lactic acid exfoliates dead skin cells and hydrates. Eucalyptus provides strong astringent properties. Together, they work to smooth skin, minimise pore size experience, reduce acne and prevent new pimples from forming.
