There are many things said and written about skin peeling but I, for one, is a firm believer in the results! One must always remember that every peel formulation is different and what works for you, might not work for someone else.
I’ve recently started with my 6 months RégimA ‘Peel and Heal’ journey and I can already see and feel difference in my skin just after two treatments. As I’ve mentioned before, I battle with pigmentation and since I’ve started with the RégimA peels, my pigmentation has lightened and my skin feels great.
The peel process starts by removing the outer dead layer of your skin. This is the layer that gives us wrinkles, pigmentation, sun spots and age spots – basically everything that delays rejuvenation. The ‘Peel and Heal’ successfully and very safely, works gradually through that outer dead layer and down to the basal living layer. It stimulates collagen production, thus re-elasticising and rejuvenating even the most damaged, scarred, sun damaged or ageing skins. Unlike many peels which thin the skin, the RégimA formula helps thicken the skin making it much more youthful, healthy and less prone to cell changes.
Depending on the condition of your skin, on application one experiences a slight stinging/tingling sensation which occurs mainly during the first five minutes following application, but mostly one feels itchiness. It is easily tolerated and usually the therapist will massage your skin with the pads of her fingers to relieve the itchiness. The feeling generally settles down after a few minutes. The peel, ranging from 20%, 40%, 70% or 90%, is left on for a period of time at the discretion of the skin care professional. This is generally between 10 to a maximum of 60 minutes, depending on your skin condition, problem and tolerance.
To remove, the peel must be thoroughly neutralised using RégimA Cleansing Gel and usually the first cleanse does sting for a minute or so. This quickly settles down and is followed by applying appropriate RégimA post peel products.
The peel contains an abundance of skin and scar healing ingredients blended with only pure, NATURAL, unadulterated acids. Although the ‘Peel and Heal’ is potent, it is still very easily tolerated and one does not have to experience a major peeling to reap the full benefit. With regular peels the skin becomes firmer, smoother, and even in colour and texture.
By doing regular ‘Peel and Heal’ treatments, accompanied with correct home care products such as the Post peel gel and Quantum elastin, one minimises the chance of cell changes. A series of peels ensures gradual skin improvement with the safest and best end results.
The RégimA ‘Peel and Heal’ is safe to use all year round and has proven benefits for all skin types, all problems, all age groups, male and female.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE:
The ‘Peel and Heal’ must be performed by a RégimA trained skin care professional. It is very well tolerated by most people, even the very young skins (as young as 11 years old). May sting more initially if the skin is dry and out of condition. Known to sting when applied pre-menstrually. During certain times of year it may sting slightly more – in extremes of cold and hot weather.
