What are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are used to remove damaged skin cells, revealing healthier skin underneath. They can be applied to the face, neck and décolletage. There are a number of reasons people may get chemical peels, because peels remove the top layer of the skin, it’s able to help other products you put on your skin penetrate deeper. A peel will help remove dead skin that has settled into fine lines, thus leading to less visibility of wrinkles. It also reveals glowing skin as it removes the flaky, irregularly attached dead skin cells from the face. A boost of collagen is also possible due to the slight inflammatory component that may occur once healed.
You will require a consultation with us before your procedure, during this visit, we will help you determine what is the best chemical peel for you. We will give you the details about the specific peel you’ll be getting, and we’ll ask about anything that could interfere with the peel.

What is BioRePeelCl3?
BioRePeelCl3 is an innovative, biphasic medical device with bio-stimulating, revitalising and peeling action.The product shows up with a lipophilic blue phase on a hydrophilic yellow phase.
The lipophilic phase (BLU) floats on the hydrophilic one (YELLOW) and prevents the oxidation of the trichloroacetic acid, mechanically separating from the contact with the oxygen, thus stabilizing the formulation. Moreover thanks to the active contents (Squalane and Isopropyl myristate) it also carries out:
•FILMING AND VEHICULATING ACTIONS It reduces trans-epidermic water evaporation and assists active principles vehiculation.
•REGENERATING ACTION It restores and maintains cutaneous hydro-lipidic film.
•MOISTURISING ACTION It increases hydration through direct and indirect mechanism.
The hydrophilic phase (YELLOW) contains an innovative mix of TCA, alpha, beta and poly hydroxy acids, amino acids and vitamins. The acids, amino acids and vitamins contained in BioRePeelCl3 are:
• TCA Trichloroacetic acid
• Poly-hydroxy acids: Lactobionic acid
• Beta-hydroxy acids: Salicylic acid
• Alpha-hydroxy acids: Tartaric acid, citric acid
• Aminoacids: Glycine, Proline, Hydroxyproline, Arginine
• Vitamins: C and B2
• Lifting agent: GABA (aminobutyric acid)
Indications: Skin Revitalisation, Treats acute Acne, Black heads, Post Acne Scarring, Enlarged Pores & Oily Skin, Melanosis or Skin Pigmentation.
