The Perfect Derma™ Peel is a comprehensive solution for a range of different skin problems for all types of patients regardless of their skin type or ethnicity. It is simple to apply, fast-acting, relatively pain free and entails only 2-3 days of peeling. This treatment is ideal for patients who are looking to reverse the signs of aging, address acne, acne scarring or enlarged pores, and achieve healthy, radiant skin in a hurry. The entire process takes around 30 minutes and the application of the peel is extremely straightforward, meaning you can relax while Dr. Brent Faulkner and our team at Faulkner Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics carry out your treatment.
You may experience a slight stinging or tingling sensation during application which will subside after 30-60 seconds. Numbing takes place once the first pass is applied and we will provide you will a fan to minimize any discomfort. Immediately after the peel has been applied the skin will either appear read, like a sunburn, or darker. Patients generally experience a sloughing of thin sheets of epidermis that begins around Day 3 and is generally completed by Day 6 or Day 7. Patients are advised to avoid heavy exercise that may contribute to excessive sweating during the peeling process. Make-up can be worn as early as Day 2, but you may not want to cover up that beautiful new skin. Your skin will be sensitive post-peel until your PH level is replenished. Sun exposure should be limited if not avoided before and during the peel process to avoid uneven exposure.
The Perfect Derma Peel combines powerful ingredients with effective acids to deliver outstanding results after just one treatment. This unique formula allows for an increase in lifting of lines and wrinkles as well as a lightening of Melasma, sun damage and hyperpigmentation.
The Perfect Derma™ Peel is the only medical grade chemical peel that contained Glutathione. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that is found in every cell of the body. It has many different important functions, including some that directly relate to the skin. This includes breaking down free radicals which have been shown to be a contributor for premature skin aging and poor skin health, and regenerating vitamins C and E, the latter of which is particularly beneficial for skin health. As a result, Glutathione is considered one of the most effective substances for skin lightening and anti-aging.
Trichloroacetic acid (also known as TCA)
Retinoic acid (Vitamin A)
Salicylic and Kojic acids
Phenol, which has a numbing effect and keeps discomfort under control
And of course, the Glutathione
There are a range of benefits associated with The Perfect Derma™ Peel, and these include the following:
Patients report little discomfort
The treatment improves the overall clarity, tone and texture of the skin
The treatment reduces or eliminates any Hyper pigmentation and/or Melasma
The peel removes or reduces sun damage
It can be used to control acne and minimize damage from acne scarring. Glutathione helps increase cellular turnover to demolish stubborn acne scars (a series of peels is recommended as needed for optimal results).
Use of the peel will also minimize the appearance of enlarged pores
Fine lines and wrinkles will be softened so that they are less obvious, and the patient looks more youthful
This treatment helps build collagen and elastin, which will help tighten and firm the skin.
As long as the skin is maintained with proper skin care the improved results will last. We recommend two to three treatments per year to sustain results and for regular maintenance and rejuvenation. The Perfect Derma may be applied every 4 weeks (initially). Eventually, it is recommended you space your peels to once every 3-6 months.
The Perfect Derma™ Peel is safe for all skin types (Fitzpatrick 1-6) and skin issues and is proven to be an effective treatment for skin aging.
