The days of growing old completely gracefully have now been replaced with the days of growing old with a little help from science. More and more women (and men) want to make the most of what they have, and why not use the latest breakthroughs in science for this? One of the most popular non-invasive ways of doing this is through Chemical Peels. Now, depending on your knowledge of the landscape of the skincare world, chemical peels either fill you with joy, or make you recoil in horror. For us, it fills us with a great amount of joy – peels vary from very gentle refreshers through to deep, aggressive peels designed to treat a variety of skin afflictions, from acne, to scars, to fine lines and wrinkles.

Now I always use Rachel at Aesthetic Nursing Services for any treatments I may need, from peels, to botox, to lip fillers, and I wouldn't trust anyone with my face except her. She covers the majority of Bucks and Chiltern. New in to Aesthetic Nursing Services is Perfect Peel, which uses Glutathione, an anti-oxidant known to prevent chronic diseases and anti-ageing, blended with acids, vitamins and minerals to penetrate the skin at a cellular level to fight all the daily and long-term damage that has been inflicted on our skins. Most people stop producing glutathione at about 40, which reduces the body’s ability to fight off toxins and increasing the ageing process. Glutathione is also proven to reverse the metabolism of melanin, leading to lightening of excess skin pigmentation, especially when combined with the Kojic Acid element, which also stimulates elastin and collagen production. The addition of Salicylic Acid also aids with the combating of acne and inflammation by clearing pores from the root.

The Ingredient List: 
Trichloracetic Acid (TCA), Salicylic Acid, Retinoic Acid, Glutathione, Kojic Acid, Phenol, Vitamin C, Minerals.

Now, Rachel has had this peel done, and is loving the results herself, and would love to tell you all about it. She says “this is a fantastic treatment to peel away that old, dull skin and reveal healthier, younger-looking skin.” Rachel noticed peeling for around 8 days, which is something she actually likes, as she can see that the peel is working its magic. After around 2 weeks, results are clearly noticeable, with the stimulation of collagen continuing into weeks 4-6. What is so brilliant about this particular peel is that it requires is suitable for all ethnicities and scales on the Fitzpatrick scale, with darker skin tones  being advised to prep prior to the peel, which is what I am currently doing - I will be updating with the results of the prep and then the peel. Please feel free to visit Aesthetic Nursing Services for more information and prices, plus find a special offer on the perfect peel on their Facebook page.

I hope you find this kind of treatment as interesting as I do.
Much love,
