Chemical Peel Treatments
Ameson Mesopeel is a professional chemical peeling system for skin’s renewal, brightness and softness. This system is based on organic acids which are chosen to treat specific skin conditions and treatments consists of 4 stages: preparation, peeling, neutralisation and regeneration.
All our peels are classed as ‘Very Superficial’ or ‘Superficial Peels and therefore have minimal or no downtime or aftercare, enabling you to continue with your life with the radiant results.
Mandelic acid is a member of the family of AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids), its commercial name is revealing of its natural origin, as it is found in bitter almonds (mandel = almond), as well as in apricots and peaches. Mandelic acid normalises the keratinisation process and enhances skin exfoliation.
As a result of its macromolecular structure it has a mild chemical peeling effect, which helps prevent irritations and makes it suitable for all skin types and all prototypes. It hydrates the skin, enhances cellular remodelling and reduces skin discolouration. antimicrobial action makes Mandelic acid is suitable for all skin types.
Glycolic acid is an AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) that is derived from sugar cane. It is one of the most popular anti-ageing active ingredients. Its small molecular structure – it has the smallest molecule of all AHA’s – allows penetration into skin cells.
Glycolic acid cleaves the bonds between keratinocytes on the horny layer and weakens the bonding properties the lipids that retain the skin’s dead cells, thus removing them. This results in the immediate and intense exfoliation of the horny layer, and simultaneous regeneration of cells.
The systematic use of high concentrations of Glycolic acid interacts with the fibroblast receptors, thus significantly stimulating the production of intercellular material (collagen, elastin, fibronectin, hyaluronic acid).
Mixture of salicylic and azelaic acid.
Salicylic is a BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid) with astringent and keratolytic properties. Moreover, it has antibacterial and anti- inflammatory properties that regulate sebum secretion and reduce the oiliness of oily/acne prone skins.
Azeliac acid is a dicarboxylic acid that is derived from cereals and has a significant effect against acne. More specifically, it has comedolytic, anti inflammatory and anti-microbial action effects (it neutralises Propionibacterium acnes of the pilosebaceous follicle) that help fight acne and pigmentation thereby reducing discolouration and in particular brown spots due to acne.
Lactic acid is an AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) derived from sour milk which helps to remove germs, dead cells and toxins and maintain its ideal PH factor. Similar to Glycolic Acid, Lactic is much gentler and therefore an excellent ‘stepping stone’ to stronger peels.
Lactic acid peels are best for people who have very sensitive skin that might not be able to tolerate the slightly more intense glycolic acid peels. Although lactic acid peels are gentler, they usually provide many of the same benefits as the other peels, but in a less intense version.
