Salicylic Acid Peels

Salicylic Acid Peels in Sydney

Salicylic Acid Peels in Sydney, Program $360

Salicylic Acid (a natural substance derived from the bark of certain trees) is a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) that can be very effective in a chemical peel. It works on the deeper layers of the skin, penetrating as far as the Stratum Germinativum (the deepest layer of the epidermis, from which new skin cells are constantly being generated). We offer peels using this treatment, known as salicylic acid peels in Sydney. This is more intensive than a peel you would receive in a beauty salon.

BHA peels work on the same principal as an AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid, such as lactic acid) peel, breaking down the glue between the skin cells, but at a much deeper level. As it has its own natural anti inflammatory agents, it can be less irritating to the skin. Salicylic peels are layered on to the skin, beginning with one layer the first treatment, and then adding subsequent layers every four weeks according to your skin reaction. Norwest Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery’s Salicylic Acid Peels in Sydney are 20% salicylic acid and have a pH of 2-2.5. There are two different salicylic acid peels that we offer, both created by Aspects: the Pigment Punch Clarity Peel and the Cabernet au Chocolat.

Aspects Pigment Punch Clarity Peel

Aspects Pigment Punch Clarity Peel helps to clear and restore your complexion so that your skin glows from within. Pigment Punch Clarity Peel is suitable for the management of epidermal and hormonal hyperpigmentation, age spots and skin discolourations.  This peel combines clinical strength Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids to lift away the dull, discoloured skin cells whilst whitening the skin through optically pure Vitamin C and Tyrostat. Your skin must prepared for at least two weeks prior to the first treatment with Aspect Dr Starter Pack to avoid adverse side effects, such as blanching. The Complete Pigment Serum is also very important to prevent post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (where, after the redness heals, the skin darkens).

Individual salicylic acid peels in Sydney are $120 per treatment.

Aspects Cabernet au Chocolat

This age reversal salicylic acid peel in Sydney helps resurface the skin, combating the signs of ageing, including uneven skin tone, fine lines and epidermal pigment. The Beta Hydroxy Acids resurface the skin, removing old, dull and discoloured layers of skin cells. This leaves a radiant, clear complexion below. The results are aided with the extracts of red wine and cacao in the peel, which have an anti oxidant effect on the new cells underneath, protecting and brightening the new layers of skin as they are brought to the surface. The Cabernet au Chocolat peel leaves your skin appearing firmer, energised and youthful.

Your skin must prepared for at least 2 weeks prior to the first treatment with Aspect Dr’s Starter Pack to avoid adverse side effects, such as blanching. The Complete Pigment Serum is also very important to prevent post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Individual salicylic acid peels in Sydney are $120 per treatment.
