If you’ve been keeping up with the latest advancements in skin care, you may have come across the BioRePeel treatment. What is it? How does it work? What are its benefits and potential risks? In this introduction, we’ll answer all these questions and more. So, let’s dive in and unveil your skin’s best story with the magic of a chemical peel!

 

What is BioRePeel?

BioRePeel Developed by CMed Aesthetics (Italy) is an innovative peel treatment, using 2-phase technology that taps into the power of bio-stimulation, revitalisation, and peeling substances to rejuvenate the skin.

It adopts a unique, non-invasive approach aimed at addressing a myriad of skin concerns, ranging from acne and enlarged pores to signs of ageing and uneven skin texture. This treatment delivers a strategic combination of active ingredients to stimulate skin cells, promote exfoliation, boost hydration, and enhance collagen production. The outcome is a revitalised complexion, reflecting the holistic wellness of your skin.

 

The Traditional Chemical Peel

Chemical peels are dermatological procedures designed to rejuvenate the skin by facilitating the shedding of damaged surface layers. They employ a solution of acid-based chemicals that, when applied to the skin, stimulate the exfoliation process, effectively peeling away layers of dead skin cells. The result is a revelation of newer, healthier skin layers beneath.

Chemical peels can address a multitude of skin concerns, including signs of ageing, sun damage, acne, and uneven skin texture. They come in varying intensities – light, medium, and deep – each offering a different degree of skin penetration and subsequent recovery time.

The Science behind BioRePeel

Ingredients and their Function

Unlike traditional chemical peels that primarily rely on the peeling action of their acid components, BioRePeel utilises a unique blend of active ingredients, each playing a critical role in skin rejuvenation. 

These include trichloroacetic acid (TCA) for improving the texture and appearance of the skin, alpha, beta and poly hydroxy acids for combating acne and skin brightening, and a combination of vitamins, amino acids and GABA for reducing lines and wrinkles and countering the effects of skin ageing by UV radiation and pollution .

BioRePeel prevents the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other symptoms of ageing on the skin. In addition to stimulating fibroblasts (cells that maintain tension and firmness), it increases cell turnover and collagen production for long-lasting effects.

What areas can BioRePeel Treat?

BioRePeel can be used on various areas of the body to address a range of skin concerns. It’s not just limited to the face. Treated areas include:

Face: It’s most commonly used on the face to treat concerns such as acne, blackheads, fresh scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and dullness.

Neck: The neck is often a neglected area that can show signs of ageing. BioRePeelCl3 can help to improve the texture and tone of the skin in this area.

Chest (décolletage): Like the neck, the chest can also show signs of sun damage and ageing. BioRePeelCl3 can help to rejuvenate the skin in this area.

Back: The treatment can be used to address concerns such as acne and acne scarring on the back.

Hands: Hands often show signs of ageing and sun damage before other areas of the body. BioRePeelCl3 can help to improve the appearance of the skin on the hands.

As always, it’s essential to consult with a dermatologist or a skincare specialist to understand if BioRePeel is the right treatment for the specific skin concerns and areas you’re looking to address. They will provide a thorough evaluation and suggest the most suitable treatment options based on your individual needs.

The BioRePeel Procedure: What to Expect

 

Advice Prior To Treatment

Gearing up for a BioRePeel treatment? Let’s take a moment and walk through some handy tips to get your skin all set for the best possible outcome.

Preparing Your Skin: Imagine it like priming a canvas before you start a masterpiece – pretty important, right? Based on your skincare professional’s guidance, you might need to tweak your skincare routine a bit. Some products, particularly those containing vitamin A derivatives like retinol, might need to hit the bench for a while. They could increase up your skin’s sensitivity, and we don’t want that.

Avoid The Sun: Excessive sun exposure can leave your skin more susceptible to sensitivity, so, let’s keep those beach days and tanning bed sessions on hold for a couple of weeks leading up to your treatment.

Hydration: Remember that one secret weapon for radiant skin? Water! Staying hydrated is the golden rule of skincare. Picture your skin as a thirsty plant – water is what helps it thrive and bloom. So, make sure you’re gulping down enough water before and after your treatment.

With these simple, yet effective tips, you’re all set to get the most out of your BioRePeel treatment. Are you ready to reveal your skin’s true potential? Let’s go for it!

 

On The Day

The BioRePeel procedure is straightforward and involves the following steps:

  1. Skin Preparation: Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, oils, or impurities. This ensures that the BioRePeel solution can effectively penetrate your skin. It will then be further prepped using the 4Ever Universal pretreatment kit which provides mechanical and chemical exfoliation alongside antioxidant action.
  2. Applying The Solution: The specialist will apply the BioRePeel solution to your skin using a special brush or applicator. The solution contains a unique blend of bio-stimulating, revitalizing, and peeling substances, including several acids (like trichloroacetic, citric, and salicylic), amino acids, and vitamins.
  3. Absorption: The BioRePeel solution is left on your skin to be absorbed. The active ingredients work by invigorating your skin cells, akin to awakening them from a deep slumber. The result is a virtuous circle of exfoliation, hydration, and collagen production. You may feel some mild tingling during this stage.
  4. Removal: Advance the clock to about 5 to 10 minutes – the conventional duration for the BioRePeel solution to enact its beneficial properties. The solution is carefully removed and following this, a gentle cleanse ensures a clean, refreshed canvas – your skin, primed and ready for its continued journey towards beauty and health.
 

Advice Post Treatment

Following the right aftercare procedure can help enhance the results of your BioRePeel treatment and minimise potential side effects. Here are some post-treatment instructions to keep in mind:

Avoid Direct Sun Exposure: It is essential to shield your skin from direct sunlight for several days. Consider it a crucial part of the recovery process, as if you’re offering your skin a much-needed respite. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of no less than 30.

Stay Hydrated: Keeping your skin hydrated aids in its recovery process.

Skincare Products: It’s best to avoid harsh skincare products or treatments for a few days post-procedure. This includes products with high concentrations of retinol, glycolic acid, or salicylic acid.

Do Not Pick or Scratch: You may experience some mild peeling or dryness after the treatment. It’s crucial not to pick or scratch your skin during this time to avoid scarring or pigmentation issues.

Healthy Lifestyle: A healthy lifestyle contributes to better skin health. Maintain a balanced diet, regular exercise, and adequate sleep to support your skin’s natural recovery and rejuvenation processes.

Side Effects and Considerations

As with any aesthetic treatment, some minor side effects may occur:

 

Common Side Effects

Redness: After the treatment, you may notice some redness on your skin. This is a common reaction and typically subsides within a few hours.

Slight Swelling: Some individuals might experience slight swelling, especially in areas with sensitive skin. This should subside within a day or two.

Tingling or Mild Discomfort: During or immediately after the procedure, you may feel a tingling sensation or mild discomfort. This usually fades quickly as the skin begins to recover

Dryness and Peeling: BioRePeel promotes exfoliation, which can lead to dryness or peeling a few days after the treatment. This is a normal part of the skin rejuvenation process and should resolve within a week.

Skin Sensitivity: Your skin may be more sensitive following the treatment, particularly to sunlight. It’s crucial to avoid direct sun exposure and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen for a few days post-treatment.

 

Uncommon Side Effects

In rare cases, individuals may have an allergic reaction to one of the ingredients used in the BioRePeel solution. If you experience severe or prolonged side effects, it’s important to contact your skincare professional immediately.

Frequently Asked Questions

Typically, you can see some immediate effects after a BioRePeel treatment, such as brighter and smoother skin. However, for optimal results, especially for concerns like acne or signs of ageing, multiple treatments are usually recommended. Remember, everyone’s skin responds differently, and results can vary.

The number of BioRePeel treatments you’ll need depends on your specific skin concerns and goals. While some people may see significant improvements after just one session, others may need a series of treatments for the best results. Your skincare professional will be able to provide a personalised treatment plan, although a course of 3 sessions will often deliver results

BioRePeel is generally a comfortable procedure. Some people may experience a slight tingling or mild discomfort during the treatment, but this typically subsides quickly once the procedure is complete.

After a BioRePeel treatment, your skin may be more sensitive than usual. Avoid using skincare products with high concentrations of retinol, glycolic acid, or salicylic acid, for a few days.

No, BioRePeel body can be used on several areas of the body, not just the face. It’s often used to treat skin concerns on the neck, chest, back, and hands. Always consult with your skincare professional to determine the best treatment areas for your individual needs.

BioRePeel is often referred to as a “lunchtime peel.” This is because it’s so quick and non-invasive that you could get it done on your lunch break and head right back to work!

The answer really depends on your skin type and the specific concerns you’re trying to address.

As a rule of thumb, it’s often recommended to start with a series of about 4 to 6 treatments, spaced one to two weeks apart. This initial series provides a more intense revitalization for your skin. After this, you might maintain the results with a BioRePeel every 1 to 3 months, depending on how your skin responds and your skincare goals.

Typically, the improvements you see from BioRePeel – like a smoother skin texture, less visible lines or lighter pigmentation – can last for several weeks to a few months. It really depends on factors like your skin type, the specific skin concerns you’re addressing, and your overall skincare routine.

One thing to remember is that BioRePeel is not a one-and-done kind of treatment. For sustained results, it’s often recommended to have regular sessions, say, every 1 to 3 months. This will help keep your skin continuously refreshed and revitalised.

Generally, a BioRePeel session can take around 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the area being treated.

The immediate aftermath of the treatment might leave your skin feeling a little tight, possibly showing some mild redness, but nothing that would stop you from going about your usual routine. Don’t be surprised if you notice a bit of flaking or peeling after a few days – it’s just your skin saying goodbye to the old and hello to the fresh, new layers underneath.
